"A nation can survive its fools, and
even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy
at the gates is less formidable, for he is known, and he carries his
banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gates
freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the
very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor. He
speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face
and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in
hearts of men. He rots the soul of a nation. He works secretly and
unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city. He infects the
body politic so that it can no longer resist. A Murderer Is Less To Be
Feared." —Cicero, 42 B.C.
in a nutshell
Carl Marx, at the age of 30, entered a competition sponsored by the
International Socialist Union of Paris, France. His submission was the
10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto, which won. The rest, as
they say, is history.
- Abolition of property in land and application
of all rents of land to public purposes. Property tax paid
annually prevents the outright ownership of property, because if
property can be confiscated for taxes owed, it can never truly be owned.
The application of our rents of land (property taxes) are used for
public purposes as envisioned by Karl Marx.
A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
The income tax was imposed upon the people briefly after the War Between
The Southern States and The dictatorial Federal Government. In 1895, The
US Supreme Court abolished it with the words, "The income tax is
indeed a direct tax and therefore unconstitutional". The Court
understood that, "No capitation, or other direct Tax shall be
laid,..." Art. 1, Sec. 9, of the US Constitution, means exactly what
it says. However, in 1913 there were enough socialist in Congress to
again foist the income tax upon the people with the 16th Amendment to
the Constitution. The income tax is not designed just to raise taxes,
which could be accomplished very easily with a national sales tax.
Instead, its goal is to punish achievement, invade privacy, and control
the people through fear and intimidation from the most Gestapo-like arm
of our government, the I.R.S.
Abolition of all right of inheritance.
Our inheritance tax puts all rights of inheritance in jeopardy. Property
tax, income tax, and inheritance tax, should be abolished because they
are all direct taxes and they all violate our God-given property rights.
They could be replaced with indirect taxes like sales tax, tobacco tax,
alcohol tax, or gasoline tax. Some advantages of indirect taxes are:
Confiscation of the property of all emigrants
and rebels. Our government does not normally confiscate
property of emigrants, however, many laws and regulations have been
passed in recent years which allow many government agencies such as the
I.R.S., O.S.H.A., E.P.A., B.L.M., and drug enforcement agencies to
confiscate property from citizens that are considered rebels. Much of
this confiscation is achieved without due process of law.
- They are indeed Constitutional.
- Our privacy would be protected.
- Everyone who spends money participates including the
super-wealthy, foreign visitors, illegal aliens, drug dealers, and
others now in the underground economy.
- It is a pay as you go system - no April 15th.
- The IRS and all associated collection cost would be eliminated.
- Lower production cost will allow business to compete
- Prices would come down more than enough to cover the sales tax
- Business would expand creating new jobs.
- The money now in off-shore tax-havens would flood back into this
country stimulating the economy.
- Manufacturing would come back home absent the over-taxation and
over-regulation that drove them to foreign countries.
Centralization of credit in the hands of the
State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive
monopoly. The Federal Reserve System was created in 1913. It
is not federally owned and nothing is in reserve. It is a private
corporation with the power to increase or decrease the money supply
by changing the interest rates and the reserve requirements of its
member banks. It can create money out of thin air, lend it to the
government and then collect the principal and interest from the
taxpayers. That is why its owners always have and always will promote
war and socialism to create inextinguishable government debt.
Centralization of the means of communication
and transport in the hands of the State. Communication and
transportation are controlled by a number of government agencies, e.g.,
The Federal Communication Commission (FCC), The Dept. of Transportation
(DOT), The Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC), The Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA). Public Television is also a good example of state
control of communication for the indoctrination of the concepts of
socialism and humanism.
me to control the currency of a nation and I care not who makes its
laws." -Baron De Rothschild, brainchild of the Federal Reserve
the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of
their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and
corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people
of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the
continent their fathers conquered." -Thomas Jefferson
Extension of factories and instruments of
production owned by the State, the bringing into cultivation of waste
lands, and the improvements of the soil generally in accordance with a
common plan. Dan Smoot's book, "The Business End of
Government" revealed that, the federal government owned 1165 different
businesses like AMTRAC. The Bureau of land Management, The Department of
Agriculture, The Department of Commerce, The Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA), etc., all promote a common plan of more and more
regulation and control from government with less and less freedom
enjoyed by the people.
Equal liability of all to labor and the
establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
Heavy taxation, over-regulation, and other economic problems caused by
our government's adoption of socialism has forced women to labor equally
with men. Our industrial army is the Social Security System which
requires membership at birth.
Combination of agriculture with manufacturing
industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and
country by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.
We are not living under this plank totally. However, we do have many
large agriculture corporations who have combined all levels of
production from the farm to the consumer. It appears that the goal of
this plank is to reduce the number of family farms making it easier to
gain control of all food and fiber production. This goal is fast
Free education for all children in public
schools.... Communist and socialist have long recognized the
value of indoctrination through a free educational system. And, it has
produced a people with no understanding of the vast differences between
the Free Enterprise System and socialism. During our Bicentennial
celebrations (1986), a national poll of school children revealed that
46% of them believed that "From him with the most ability - to him with
the most need" was part of our Constitution. Today all socialist, all
liberals and most democrats believe the same thing.
Would it surprise you to learn that "The Democratic Socialist of
America" are alive and well in the U.S.A.. Its "Progressive Caucus" list
58 members from the U.S. House of Representatives. All are democrats
except their chairman, Benard Sanders, who ran on the socialist party
ticket. You can find the list at:
The only difference between communism and socialism is its method of
imposition. Communism is forced upon the people against their will.
Socialism on the other hand is entered into voluntarily by the majority of
Even though the goals are the same, socialism is much more dangerous because
it gradually enslaves the people without the use of visible force, while
artfully disguising its evil motives with a variety of so-called noble
The evils of socialism and humanism cannot survive exposure unless "good men
and women do nothing". The following is offered in hopes that you will join
our efforts to expose those evils. Your comments are WELCOME!

is easy to understand how law, instead of checking injustice, becomes
the invincible weapon of injustice. It is easy to understand why the law
is used by the legislator to destroy in varying degrees among the rest
of the people, their personal independence by slavery, their liberty by
oppression, and their property by plunder. This is done for the benefit
of the person who makes the law, and in proportion to the power that he
holds." Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850).
