Marx, Engels and the American Socialist Party – the Democrats

On February 26, 1848 the Communist Manifesto was published in London by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels. One of the main premises of the Manifesto was the elimination of class distinctions in society. Certainly at face value a goal that could be considered a reasonable, maybe even a noble endeavor. Though I’m not sure the Hollywood and academic leftist elites in this country would be in favor of that quite so much.

Marx and Engels believed that the goal of Communism is a stateless and classless society which would be achieved by the workers taking control of the means of production from the ruling class. Unfortunately as was the case in the former Soviet empire the ruling class lived quite well under communism, only the great unwashed – the common people suffered. As has always been the case under communist-socialist policies.

I think all Americans would agree that everyone should be treated equally without regard to their level of wealth or their position in government or in society.

That ideal forms the basis for what the United States of America was founded upon, equal opportunity for all. Equal opportunity, not equal results.

In recent years we often have heard from politicians in the American Socialist Party – formerly the Democrat Party – that the deck is stacked against the common man, and that everyone deserves “a fair shake”. Barack Obama used that phrase often during his eight years in office. And though the Democrat Party was already moving towards the left philosophically and politically for years, the race towards Socialism was speeded up under Obama.

After Obama’s eight years of marching towards Socialism I think it’s time we lift the veil off of what has been happening politically in this country for decades. It’s time to put on display for all to see exactly what the Socialist agenda has been up to.

The appearance on the national political scene of Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a prime example of what our colleges and universities have been producing now for decades. Though I haven’t seen her college grades I’m betting that she was a star pupil in college, likely graduating with honors. Just the kind of student that her leftist-Communist professor-propagandists were hoping to create through their indoctrination of American youth. And obviously in her case they succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. She appears to have bought into their baloney hook, line, and sinker.

I’ve tried to avoid writing about AOC too much, I think she unfairly gets more than her share of publicity – to use a Socialist analogy.  But one can’t help but point out how ludicrous most of her claims and suggestions truly are.

Most recently she has questioned whether or not people should even reproduce because of the threat of climate change. In other words we shouldn’t propagate the species anymore, but we’ll save the world ! “I mean, like, really, after all the world is going to end in twelve years anyway”. Somehow Communist China’s ‘one child’ policy comes to mind.

It would seem that AOC might be setting a record for how quickly one can wear out their welcome in Washington. Nancy Pelosi and other party leaders seem to be losing patience with her, and as a neophyte in the rough and tumble game of national politics, poor AOC could find herself in a heap of political trouble – if not legal trouble – very soon.

The American Socialist Party is now completely in the grip of the extreme left, with all of the so far announced candidates for president trying to out-left each other during their campaign appearances by promising government giveaways they’ll never be able to deliver on. And by offering pie-in-the-sky programs that will never be paid for or ever really solve a problem facing the country. They sound good in a campaign speech to the uneducated, low information crowd, but those of us who live in the real world understand the difference between a campaign promise, and the ability to deliver on a promise. Something a non-politician like Donald Trump has shown the ability to do quite well so far.

All the American Socialist Party knows how to do is to control a population by destroying their initiative and entrepreneurial spirit, and make people dependent on the government for their very survival. Promise them everything by playing on Marxist-Socialist slogans like “tax the rich”.

My guess is that Marx and Engels would be very proud of AOC and the direction the formerly Democrat, now American Socialist Party has been headed for years. And they’d be slapping each other on the back over the success they have thus far achieved on this the 171st anniversary of their Communist Manifesto.

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

The establishment has money and counts itself as power brokers. They love the status quo, the “don’t rock the boat” mentality. They pronounce, “This is our guy!” and expect the masses to get in line. However, many are standing up and deciding to vote conscience over party or affiliation – regardless. But aren’t those the same “stand up” attitude and actions that formed this great nation?

The Ignorance of Politicians Wishing for a Non-Carbon Future is Insane

The Ignorance of Politicians Wishing for a Non-Carbon Future is Insane

Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) seems unaware that in a “non-carbon future,” everything would be dead since carbon is the primary building block of life. Undeterred, the AP release from Beyer’s office claimed: “Warmer temperatures are lowering workers’ incomes, and the increased severity and frequency of natural disasters is lowering overall economic growth…The cost of inaction will be catastrophic.”
