Karl Marx, 1818-1883: "Democracy is the road to socialism."

(Mar. 16, 2010) — To fully understand the progressive movement and its current rush to grab one-sixth of the US economy via unconstitutional federal health care mandates, one must follow the trail that leads from the Maoist Movement of the ‘60s that started in Berkeley, California, and the Marxist Movement that has culminated in the joint venture between the Communist Party USA and Socialist Party USA, today’s Democratic Socialists of America.

You do not have to believe what I tell you in this column. But if you study the sources linked in this column, no reasonable mind can come to any other conclusion. Information is power. If most Americans were aware of all that is presented in this column, they would know exactly what to do to save their Constitutional Republic while they still can.

Today’s US Congress is controlled by two Democratic Socialists of America (DSAUSA) organizations, the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

The DSAUSA explains it very clearly in its publication, What is Democratic Socialism:  “We are not a separate party. Like our friends and allies in the feminist, labor, civil rights, religious, and community organizing movements, many of us have been active in the Democratic Party. We work with those movements to strengthen the party’s left wing, represented by the Congressional Progressive Caucus.”

They explain their primary methods as well – in the spirit of Joseph Stalin – “Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.”

They want our youth

“Since the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s, young people have played a critical role in American politics. They have been a tremendous force for both political and cultural change in this country: in limiting the US’s options in the war in Vietnam, in forcing corporations to divest from the racist South African regime, in reforming universities, and in bringing issues of sexual orientation and gender discrimination to public attention. Though none of these struggles were fought by young people alone, they all featured youth as leaders in multi-generational progressive coalitions. Young people are needed in today’s struggles as well: for universal health care and stronger unions, against welfare cuts and predatory multinational corporations.”

Vladimir Lenin explained why the political left always targets young minds in the pursuit of the leftist agenda: “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”

And so it is in America today. What our children understand to be “progressive,” the older generations know to be socialism, communism, Marxism and most accurately, totalitarianism. Young people have been taught to call it “social justice,” the central government’s power to control individual outcomes regardless of individual productivity, or as Karl Marx put it, “to take from each according to his abilities, and give to each according to his needs.” This is the fundamental basis of Marxism, “social justice” and today’s progressive ideal.

Annual Conference to be held in New York City

From March 19 – 21, 2010, like-minded leftist organizations from all over the world will hold their annual conference at Pace University in New York City. From the Left Forum About Us page: “Each spring Left Forum convenes the largest gathering in North America of the US and international Left. Continuing a tradition begun in the 1960s, we bring together intellectuals and organizers to share perspectives, strategies, experience and vision.”

This year’s Left Forum event is titled “Rekindling the Radical Imagination,” and it opens with grave concerns about the movement, which explains the desperation in progressive leaders like Obama, Pelosi and Reid as they risk all to advance a health care bill that hasn’t even been written yet:  “The ongoing capitalist crisis generated high hopes that the parties and social movements of the Left, both in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world, would be re-energized. So far this has not happened. The Left remains fractured and confused, drifting away from its labor base, while the Right seems to have emerged as the stronger or at least the more strident force.”

The leftist Obama Administration is under heavy fire from those who put him in power, the international left.

Constitutional conservatives who opposed Obammunism in 2008 are even more opposed in 2010. Moderates who fell for Obama’s centrist-sounding campaign have since awakened and turned against him. But his record-low approval rating and that of the DSAUSA-led Congress dips well below the mark of the constitutional American majority.

Their low approval ratings are fueled by increasing anger from hard-core leftists who expected Obama to ram through their agenda by any means necessary, even if 95% of Americans stood opposed.

Today’s Democrat Party is NOT run by Democrats, or even Liberals. It is run by Democratic Socialists, aka progressives.

Following the advice of Karl Marx who said, “Democracy is the road to socialism,” Progressives tricked Americans into voting socialists into power, and every time someone challenges their socialist agenda, they proclaim, “the election is over; we won!”

In other words, the 2008 election gives them the right to run roughshod over the vast majority of Americans, because they won the election fair and square, and as Democrats, they believe in the very ideology that Thomas Jefferson warned against:  “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.”

On this basis, progressives (aka Marxists) believe that they were elected to power for the purpose of ushering in global socialism, and they couldn’t care less how many Americans stand opposed. They won the election and that’s that!

As long as Americans think they are debating with Democrats or liberals, they are no match for the international socialist juggernaut they are up against.

In a recent column I asked, “Is the Constitution a Partisan Document?

This is why they want to run health care

Over the years, I have known many Republicans, Democrats and Independents who love and revere the US Constitution, our Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence. But today, these ideas are under attack from within the halls of our own government, and that’s what the anger at town hall meetings is all about. That’s what the 912 and Tea Party movements are about…

And, the fight for the future of freedom rests in the vote over nationalized health care about to be rammed down every American throat this week.

The Health Care debate is NOT over health care, it’s all about FREEDOM versus unbridled federal power.

Every sane American knows that there are things that can and should be done to improve health care in America. But we also know that handing health care over to the very people who have bankrupted every federal program under the sun is beyond insane.

The debate isn’t over health care. It’s over the federal government’s need to confiscate one-sixth of the US economy and gain control over life and death in one fast sweep.

If the American people fail to stand together and defeat this one government grab, they will have doomed themselves to a life of servitude for generations to come.

These are NOT your grandparents’ Democrats. Know thy enemy, or suffer defeat… Stand now or be forever silent!

  1. Today’s Democrat Party is NOT run by Democrats, or even Liberals. It is run by Democratic Socialists, aka progressives

    I wish the repubs and true dems knew this.

    1. Are you saying that there is a ‘tinkers-damn’ difference between Socialists / Fascist / Nazis and / or any other form of ‘totalitarian’ form of guv’mnt?

      The RESULTS are all the same.

      The ‘people’ are no more than ‘useful idiots’ who are disposable when their usefulness is used up.

      ‘American Exceptualism’ is more than some empty self aggrandizing rhetoric. It IS the correct adjective form of definition of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, as it encompasses the Founding Generations cutting the bonds to ALL tyrants up to this generations challenge of overcoming tyrants from WITHIN.

  2. JB- This is a great tutorial. I hope the time comes soon- that I can send this to some of my friends & family so they can understand.
    Right now they are stuck at the bar having the Jim Jones special!

  3. The logical conclusion of ignoring the constitution when it comes to presidential eligibility is “progressively” ignoring the constitution on other things.
    Like, maybe, foisting a gov’t takeover of health care on us without voting on it?
    That’s what the slaughter solution is. Ignore the constitution.

  4. “The leftist Obama Administration is under heavy fire from those who put him in power, the international left.”

    Article II Section I Clause V was written in hopes that this kind of ‘foreign influence’ could be avoided.

    Only those educated in the Republican form of Representative government were to be considered appropriate under the Constitution to provide for the support, protection and defense of this One Nation Under God.

    Support your local Birther.

    Once ‘usurpation’ is proved all of the ‘works’ of the ‘0’ can be ‘nullified’ and ‘deemed’ ‘void’.

  5. Figuring out what motivates a “Progressive” is quite simple. Three things come to mind…power, control and money. Obamacare is the tax vehicle they need to further fund thier “socialists agenda”. Americans are being duped into believing they are getting health insurance when in actuality it’s another layer of TAX.

  6. [Shortly after Lincoln’s election, Congress passed the highly protectionist Morrill tariffs.

    That’s when the South seceded, setting up a new government. Their constitution was nearly identical to the U.S. Constitution except that it outlawed protectionist tariffs, business handouts and mandated a two-thirds majority vote for all spending measures.

    The only good coming from the War Between the States was the abolition of slavery. The great principle enunciated in the Declaration of Independence that “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed” was overturned by force of arms. By destroying the states’ right to secession, Abraham Lincoln opened the door to the kind of unconstrained, despotic, arrogant government we have today, something the framers of the Constitution could not have possibly imagined.

    States should again challenge Washington’s unconstitutional acts through nullification. But you tell me where we can find leaders with the love, courage and respect for our Constitution like Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and John C. Calhoun. ]

    1. Your picture of history is painted in Black and White.

      If you add the color of the rhetoric of the Southern States insistence on spreading ‘slavery’ to the territories and prospective ‘New states’ you would come away with a clearer and more colorful picture of what ‘Ol Honest Abe was faced with.

      However, it is true that the prosperity enjoyed in the North after the war led the Congress to great excess with the poverty suffered by the South being forced into isolationism that lasted until the 2nd Civil War, the 60’s Civil Rights Acts.

      That is when the States lost their ‘Rights’.
