Are the Communists coming?

By Henry Lamb
web posted October 8, 2007

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,

"Our Party has an important role to play in keeping the focus on the fight for a new direction in our country for jobs, healthcare and an end to the war. That is how the 2008 elections will be won."

She tells his members that:                                                     

"We should get involved in voter registration in every club, and involving every member. We can inspire voter registration and turnout by relating the elections to ending the war, achieving universal single-payer health care, and measures to respond to the economic crisis."

Does this sound like a Democratic rally or what?

"Just a year and a half ago in January 2006 the main estimate of pollsters and the mass media was that it would not be possible to change control of congress. The change was bigger than most anyone anticipated. We are now building on the victory."

"The main emphasis in the Senate is to hold onto and enlarge the Democratic majority."

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:

"Who wins the presidency and the size of the majority in Congress is of crucial importance. These elections offer a chance to deliver a decisive blow to the ultra-right and to change the course of the country."

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:

"In 2008 it is possible to enlarge the Democratic majority in general, and at the same time to enlarge the progressive  Black and Hispanic caucuses and union members in Congress by engaging in some primaries."

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. ESR
