Ah, spring is in the air! The flowers are blooming. The buds on the trees are sprouting. But wait kids. Did you remember May Day? May 1st (May Day) is a traditional day of celebration for Communists worldwide. I quote from the Communist Party USA website – “a day of struggle for workers rights and of celebration of the contribution of all workers: men and women, gay and straight, every race, language, religion or nationality.” Oh how inspiring!
But for you middle school and high school students educated in the government school system, here’s something you may not know about the Communist Party. You see, unless you’re older than 40 years, you were never taught about the ideology of Karl Marx. And while we’re at it, you probably were never educated on the US Founding Fathers, The US Bill of Rights, and the US Constitution. In short – as us old 50 something guys say – you’ve been ripped off. If you had received a good education, you would know that Communism and its component, Socialism, killed 100,000,000+ of its own people within the past 80 years! I repeat: 100,000,000+ of its own people.
Those that weren’t killed, were often tortured, maimed, imprisoned, stripped of their possessions, and terrorized – by their own government. The wretched remainder learned to keep their mouths shut and do what they’re told. It was common knowledge just 40 years ago, that Russia, China, Cuba, and a number of other Communist countries were places you’d never want to live. In fact, citizens of Communist countries frequently risked their lives seeking asylum in the US.
The poor in the US live far better than the majority of people in Communist countries. That’s because the economic opportunities in a free Republic bring prosperity to a greater percentage of its citizens. People emigrating from Communist countries are amazed at the wealth and standard of living in the US. So why would anyone want a political and economic system that does these terrible things to its own citizens? Maybe someone’s telling a little fib about Socialism.
Now students, don’t take my word for all of this. Study about Stalin, Chairman Mao, and Pol Pot. Get yourselves your own copy of the Communist Manifesto. Then, get a copy of the US Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Study them carefully. It won’t take you long. Finally, look at the avalanche of new legislation being created right now by our Congress and Senate. See which ones are Constitutional and which ones are Marxist. Here’s a pop quiz: the progressive income tax; was that Constitutional or Marxist? Hint: which plank was it? The US Federal Reserve (the central bank); was that Constitutional or Marxist?
So, Comrades. Happy May Day. Let’s see if we can’t complete the transition to communism in the US over the next 3-4 years! We’re well on our way. The next time you hear from me, I may be in a US gulag somewhere. Uh kids, gulag is a Soviet prison camp where dissenters are kept – so they won’t be a threat to Communism.
