Are the Communists coming?
By Henry Lamb
It is getting increasingly difficult to distinguish between the agenda of the Democratic party, and the agenda of the Communist Party. Joelle Fishman, Chair, Political Action Committee, CPUSA, says,
She tells his members that:
Does this sound like a Democratic rally or what?
The sad reality is that because Communists hide behind words such as "progressive," and "democratic," they have been able to sell their agenda to the public. They claim that:
"Voters favor Democrats in congress on the issues (52 - 37 on the war; 59-29 healthcare, 54-29 energy, 56-33 social security, 55-38 jobs) A majority even prefer Democrats on the issue of deficits (51-38)." (Battleground 2008 July poll by Celinda Lake).
If this is true, it means that the majority of people in America support the agenda of the Communist Party. Joelle Fishman is correct when she says:
Should the 2008 elections go to the Democrats, as the Communist Party USA is working to accomplish, the direction of the nation will change dramatically. The direction will not be toward individual freedom, free enterprise, private property rights, and the pursuit of individual happiness. The direction will be toward the values of communism, which holds the state as the grantor of all rights, including socialized medicine through universal health care; amnesty for all illegal aliens who want to come to America; cradle-to-grave education by the state; surrender in Iraq; and acquiescence to all threats of violence; no right to own guns; and a state-assigned job for everyone.
There is a reason why Communism failed in the Soviet Union. There is a reason why China is unleashing its economy in favor of free enterprise, even while denying political freedom to its people. Communism cannot carry its own weight. Eventually, the workers realize that there is no reason to work harder than anyone else, since reward is determined by the state, not by achievement. Eventually, the "rich" from whom much is taken, become poor, and the source of the redistributed wealth vanishes. The result is inevitable: kaboom, viva la Soviet!
The influence of the communist philosophy has already permeated the government of the United States to the point of vulnerability. While the Communists say:
It is crucial that those Americans who want no part of the Communist Manifesto in the United States, get off their duffs and get to work for candidates who will disavow the policies advanced by the Communist Party USA.
The fight for America is not limited to the presidency, nor to Congress. The battle is being waged in every city council, county commission, and state legislature election. There are candidates campaigning right now for policies that originated with the Brundtland Commission, chaired by Gro Harlem Brundtland, then-vice chair of the World Socialist Party.
When a candidate uses terms such as "smart growth," and "sustainability," don't take these words to be meaningless. Know that they come from Agenda 21, a product of the U.N. Conference on Environment and Development. This is the same conference that produced the Convention on Biological Diversity, and the Climate Change Treaty.
Agenda 21, and its policies seek to take elected officials out of the policy-making arena and place that authority in the hands of appointed "stakeholder councils," and the like. "Stakeholder councils" serve much the same function as "soviets" in the old communist regimes.
The elections of 2008 certainly do have the potential to change the direction of America - from the land of the free, to the home of the enslaved.
