Having lived in Germany for most of my life, I have a very unique perspective on communism because I have seen the results of 45 years of a communistic regime in East Germany. After WWII, the Russian occupied area of Germany became known as East Germany. A few years later, the powers at be decided to build a wall right through the middle of Berlin and heavy border fortifications along the border to West Germany. Interestingly, these fortifications were not built to keep West Germany and its allies out of East Germany but to keep the East German people IN!!! Ever heard of the IRON CURTAIN? For all the people out there that think communism (and of course ANY form of socialism, which is, according to Karl Marx, the founder of communism, just a mile stone on the road to communism) is such a great idea, ask yourself, why thousands of people risked their lives and many died while trying to escape the communist regime but NOBODY ever tried to flee the other direction. According to statistics, between 1961 and 1988, 961 people lost their life while attempting to flee East Germany!!! Does that give you any clue? All those people that Lenin calls “the useful idiots” who support all these great sounding ideas never had the “benefit” to live under a communistic regime for any length of time. My dad was born in East Prussia, which was east of Poland before WWII but belonged to Germany. It is now Lithuania. With the Russian advance west towards the end of the war my dad fled with my grand mother across the frozen Baltic Sea and survived besides by Russian war planes firing machine guns at them. (Sure glad he survived…). Before the borders closed he left Dresden and ended up in Hamburg where he met my mom.
By the way, for a long time I thought that National Socialism (remember Hitler?) was on the opposite side of the political spectrum as Communism. However, that is false, the truth is that the political spectrum looks like this:
Communism (100% Government) <———-+———-> Anarchy (0% Government)
Any form of socialism (including Hitler’s National Socialism) is at the extreme left of the spectrum. America’s Founding Fathers were clearly to the right of the center because, as one can derive from such documents as the U.S. Constitution, The Declaration of Independence, and the Federalist Papers, they were designing a very LIMITED government. In fact I remember a quote from Thomas Jefferson out of Oliver DeMille’s book, “1913” (a fantastic book and must read for every freedom-loving American) that states,
“…To this I am opposed; because when all government…in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the centre of all power, it will render powerless the checks of one government on another, and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated.” -Thomas Jefferson
Can anybody disagree that our Federal Government is getting bigger and bigger controlling and regulating more and more aspects of our lives? How many laws are out there that restrict YOUR freedom? Two or maybe three? Or maybe more like 30,000?? Anybody know them all? What does the Preamble of the U.S. Constitution say again,
“WE THE PEOPLE of the United States of America, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Come on, AMERICANS, PLEASE start thinking for yourself again rather than letting the national news media tell you what to think!!! Let’s see, “…secure the Blessings of Liberty…”, do all these 30,000 some laws increase our liberty or take it away? I would say that most these laws that we have are UNCONSTITUTIONAL because they don’t promote liberty (what the Founding Fathers clearly intended) but increasing degrees of slavery.
Now, on the other hand, what is socialism? Curtis Bowers lays it out very clearly in the movie, he says that socialism can be best described by two words, BIG GOVERNMENT.
Just one example, the communists want to and, basically, already have taken over our public school system. Don’t believe it? Just watch the movie. Now why would they want to do this? Perhaps this quote will clue us in,
“Give me 4 years to teach the children, and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” -Vladimir Lenin
In Wisconsin some schools have now adopted the PLEDGE TO THE WORLD,
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE WORLD,
TO CARE FOR EARTH, SEA, AND AIR
TO HONOR EVERY LIVING THING,
WITH PEACE AND JUSTICE EVERYWHERE.
Let’s teach our kids, “Forget America, World Government is where it’s at!!!” That will be the end of the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave”. In 1993, I came to America because it was the “Land of Opportunity”. Having lived here now for almost 20 years, I have really started to like the freedoms I have in this country and I really would like my kids and future generations to have the same freedom and opportunity that I, and do I dare say most Americans, enjoy but perhaps keep for granted. It’s up to us to pass the torch of freedom on to future generations and it is not going to be easy. It starts with average Americans like you and I educating themselves as to where we came from, where we are now, and where we are headed. Because only when we can identify the course, can we possibly have any hope at altering it.
AMERICANS, I AM COUNTING ON YOU (Yes, that means you, who is reading this right now). If our ship continues to sink I know where we are gonna be in 20-30 years, I have seen the results of communism first hand in Eastern Germany, where, e.g., the standard government issue car that made up 95% of the car population was called a Trabant, a noisy 2-cycle engine car with 17HP that reached a max speed of maybe 50mph. Yet, if you lived in Eastern Germany and wanted to buy this wonder of communistic technology you had to get on a wait list and wait 15years (not a typo…) before you got yours. Excited about communism, yet? As Bob McEwen once said, it was so great that they had to build a wall around it so that everybody would stick around to enjoy the benefits.
Germany today is another good indicator of where we are headed if nothing is done to prevent this. My dad told me that Germany has just recently deactivated the last nuclear power plant. Why? Because the environmentalist movement (that is controlled by the communists in Germany and the U.S.) that started in the late 70s has become so strong that they influenced the German public with fear of nuclear energy, the cheapest way to generate energy currently. The communist controlled environmental movement has a head start in Germany of about a decade (my guess) compared to America. Curtis Bower shows how it is using the same scare tactics now here in the U.S. (and around the world) with the disproven farce called “GLOBAL WARMING”. But again, even though it has been proven to be a farce, our national media do their part to further the communistic agenda by not reporting such relevant information to the general public, which, as a result, still thinks that global warming is a real concern. Just ask your neighbor he will gladly pass on all the programming he has received from the news.
Please, everybody, here are some action items to do in the next 24 hours:
1) have people that are on the fence about how to vote watch the AGENDA movie or the trailer (see links above)
2) Vote tomorrow, and don’t vote for another 4 years of America being pulled further towards communism at lightening speed.
3) Whatever the outcome of the election tomorrow, do something to do your part to preserve the freedom in America that our Founders intended. Start with buying a copy of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. The American Heritage Foundation Bookstore is a great place to start, you can buy 10 copies for $10 or 50 copies for $25. Click here. No, I am not making any money when you purchase some of these and pass them out.
4) Watch 15min less TV per day and invest in your education by following Orrin Woodward’s Blog and on Twitter.
We can turn this trend around when we all work together!!
God Bless America!!
