Out of the past….
“Democratic Socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives.” (Originally published by the Democratic Socialists of America)
Months ago, as I began to write about the dangers of socialism to America, (and how the Democratic Party has become a sort of Socialist/Democratic party) I was stunned when they, the democrats, did not refute it. I had expected democrats to deny any connection to socialism. But they didn’t…
It was then that it struck me… they don’t deny it because they can’t. They have become socialist! They have embraced socialism. Why, then, I asked myself, don’t they change the name of their parry to accurately reflect whom, exactly, they are. We suggest: “The Socialist Democrat Party of America.” There is no reason to attempt to conceal the true alignment of the so-called Democratic Party in America with the Socialist Movement any longer. They have totally embraced socialism — with gusto!
As a soldier in the US military I was taught to fight socialism. We trained to meet the socialists on the field of battle. There was no question that Americanism and socialism could not exist on the same globe without conflict, and, we rightly assumed, armed conflict. Is that where America is headed today — armed conflict between American citizens over whether America will remain a socialist country or revert back to its proper role as a democratic representative republic under the authority of the US Constitution?
Make no mistake about it: a coup de’tat has taken place in America. The socialists have taken over the government of the country. While the people remain democratic, the government is socialist — from the White House to the Congress.
Here is a quote from WHERE WE STAND — The Political Perspective of the Democratic Socialists of America:
“In the United States, we must fight for a humane public policies that will provide quality health care, education, and job training and that redirect public investment from the military to much-neglected urban housing and infrastructure. Such policies require the support of a majoritarian coalition of trade unionists, people of color, feminists, gays and lesbians and all other peoples committed to democratic change. Our greatest contribution as American socialists to global social justice is to build that coalition, which is key to transforming the power relations of global capitalism.”

Never doubt this, dear reader, socialism leads, inevitably, to communism. Socialism is the precursor for communism. Socialism is the “forerunner,” so to speak, for the advent of communism into a nation’s government. That “forerunner” is now in place in both the White House and in the Congress of the United States of America.
The Communist Manifesto is also a socialist manifesto. You need only read Frederick Engels’ preface to the 1888 edition of the Communist Manifesto, which declares that the Communist Manifesto “is undoubtedly the most widespread, the most international production of all Socialist literature, the common platform acknowledged by millions of working men from Siberia to California.” (SOURCE)
What of socialism and Christianity? The answer is they cannot co-exist.
Socialism means economic control of the people by government. In a socialist country, the state is all-powerful. Such an all-powerful state views itself — and not God — as the ultimate authority. It is not surprising, therefore, that the Communist Manifesto calls for abolishing family, marriage, countries, and religion as well as private property. Under the socialist system the state determines what is right and wrong — without any competing loyalties to God, family, or country. (SOURCE)
So, how does socialism gain total control over the citizens of America? Universal Healthcare – Socialized Medicine – ObamaCare, no matter what you call it, it means one thing: Total control of the lives of American citizens! And it is on the verge of becoming the law of the land.
The Congress has roughly three weeks of actual time “in session” before the end of the year. The US Senate is going to bust it’s seams during those few days to ram Socialized Medicine through the Senate and down the throats of their fellow Americans.
We have to stop them. If we have any desire, at all, to preserve America, to preserve the freedoms granted us by the constitution, Socialized Medicine must be stopped and stopped cold… otherwise America, as a free nation, is lost.
