President Trump recently said that the United States will never be a socialist country. This statement is not true, although I wish it were, because America is already a socialist country. It didn’t start out that way, but the America of today is saturated in socialism.
In creating the Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx, a German philosopher and atheist, designed ten planks as a test to determine whether a society has become communist or not. If they are all in effect and in force, then the people are practicing communists.
Our current government has implemented seven of those ten planks:
A socialist system of education for their children, A socialist, government-managed healthcare system, A completely socialist universal retirement program, A massive socialist bailout of the automobile and banking industry, A socialist system of agriculture subsidies, A socialist taxation of real property, and arguably the largest social welfare system in the history of the world.
We can see that almost every plank of Karl Marx’ communist manifesto has been fully implemented in this country. Remember, communism by any other name is still communism.
Communism offers no safety or asylum for the American view of individual God-given rights. In the words of the atheist Karl Marx, “The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is the demand for their real happiness. To call on them to give up their illusions about their condition is to call on them to give up a condition that requires illusions.”
Marx’s evil philosophies would not have been welcomed in the company of our Founding Founders or in the company of Liberty.
In the words of our second president John Adams, “The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.”
