Obama’s red hoard

The following is the ten planks of the communist party as stated in the Communist manifesto:

 

  1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
  2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
  3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
  4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
  5. Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
  6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.
  7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
  8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
  9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.
  10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc.

 

Ok,  let’s start from the the top.  (1.) “…property in land…”  They want to take away all the land! Actually no. This refers specifically to the form of parasitic land ownership practiced in Europe between about 1600 and 1916.   The modern use of money to make money is in factories, which requires active management.  So, despite a lack of laws abolishing it, it’s extremely rare in developed nations.

“…progressive or graduated income tax…” Got it.

“…abollition of all rights of inheritance tax…” Why abolish it when you can tax it as unearned income, at 60%

“…confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels..”  ie, illegal immigrants.  Glad to see Doctor Dobson and Engles/Marx agree on this.

“…national bank…with exclusive monopoly…” Aw, we can’t do that: not constitutional.  Let’s just make a US Treasury with all the same powers. Got it.

“…centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.”  Like the FCC and the F DOT?

We seem to have only partially dodged (7.) and (8.)

“Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries…”  Like the fact that the single largest receiver of US Dept of Agricultural subsidies is multinational super firm Monsanto?   (Who spent 3.6 million of their 8.5 billion on lobbying, by the way.)

“…Free education for all children in public school…”

So in order for Obama to not be seen as a socialist/communist he would need to (1.) Establish manorial farm management, (2.) Give tax breaks to the rich, (3.) Remove inheritance laws, (4.) Rob and imprison rather than ship out illegals (5.) Eliminate the Federal Treasury (6.) Eliminate the FCC and DOT, (7.)  Destroy the federally funded dams and canals in the Southwest which make agriculture possible there (8.) Refuse to let those on welfare work (9.) Eliminate the Department of Agriculture, and (10.) Make a constitutional amendment forbidding public schools.

So since, all of those programs have bipartisan support, doesn’t that mean the Republican party is also Communist? MY GOD, THE RED HOARDS! 

…Or, maybe, just maybe, we could admit that the US is a socialist democracy which uses a mixed economy which is predominately free market and includes many elements of command economy?

I’m not trying to be mean here, but how stupid are these people?  Yes, Obama is a socialist.  So is McCain.  “But socialist want to rob from the hard working and give to people who didn’t earn it!”  So what exactly did you do to earn the “EARNED INCOME CREDIT”?  The government is paying you to have HAVE PROCREATIVE SEX!  The government takes money from hardworking rich people without kids to pay it to you.   The government is paying for your kids to go to school.  The government is paying for your retirement.  The government is paying your workman’s comp.   The government is paying the interest on your college loans. This is a socialist society.  Freakin’ deal.
