The Center For Spiritual Leadership                 “Those people not governed by God shall be ruled by tyrants”....Wm Penn PRESENTS              Christian Soldiers Of America THE TEN PLANKS OF THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO AS A PART OF AMERICAN LAW       Could this be happening in America? There is no doubt. It already has! Our "elected representatives" have passed laws implementing these anti-freedom concepts. The communists have achieved a de facto FEDERAL SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT in America. In 1848 Karl Marx and Frederick Engels wrote a book outlining a political ideology, titled "The Communist Manifesto". Marxism's basic theme is that, after sowing discontent where there was none, the proletariat (the "exploited" working class of a capitalistic society) will suffer from alienation and will rise up against the "bourgeoisie" and overthrow the system of "capitalism." After a brief period of rule by "the dictatorship of the proletariat", the classless society of communism would emerge.   In his Manifesto Marx described the following ten steps as necessary steps to be taken to destroy a free enterprise society!! Notice how many of these conditions, foreign to the principles that America was founded upon, have now been realized by the concerted efforts of socialist activists? Remember, government interference in your daily life and business is intrusion and deprivation of our liberties! First Plank: Abolition of property in land and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.  (Zoning - Model ordinances proposed by Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover widely adopted. Supreme Court ruled "zoning" to be "constitutional" in 1921. Private owners of property are required to get permission from government relative to the use of their property. Federally owned lands are leased for grazing, mining, timber usages, the fees being paid into the U.S. Treasury.) An Arizona man was recently jailed for conducting a Bible study in his home; zoning laws did not permit the owner to use the property for that purpose. Second Plank: A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.  (Corporate Tax Act of 1909. The 16th Amendment, allegedly ratified in 1913. The Revenue Act of 1913,  section 2, Income Tax. These laws have been purposely misapplied against American citizens to this day.) The Supreme Court ruled against the personal Income Tax, but the government went ahead with it anyway.  (Will this happen with Healthcare too?) Also, there is no evidence in the Library of Congress that the 16th Amendment was ever ratified! The Constitution prohibits a direct graduated tax on citizens’ wages. Third Plank: Abolition of all rights of inheritance. (Partially accomplished by enactment of various state and federal "estate tax" laws taxing the "privilege" of transferring property after death and gift before death.) Democrats want more than half of your estate’s value when you die. Fourth Plank: Confiscation of the property rights of all emigrants and rebels. (The confiscation of property and persecution of those critical - "rebels" - of government policies and actions, frequently accomplished by prosecuting them in a courtroom drama on charges of violations of non-existing administrative or regulatory laws, including Eminent Domain and property forfeiture laws that are only permissible under Maritime Law, not within our borders.) Fifth Plank: 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 Bank, 1913- - the system of privately-owned Federal Reserve banks with no accountability for the valueless debt "money" in circulation, but transfers liability for the loss of value to tax-payers.) Sixth Plank: Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.   (Federal Radio Commission, 1927; Federal Communications Commission, 1934;  Air Commerce Act of 1926; Civil Aeronautics Act of 1938; Federal Aviation Agency, 1958; becoming part of the Department of Transportation in 1966; Federal Highway Act of 1916 (federal funds made available to States for highway construction); Interstate Highway System, 1944 (funding began 1956); Interstate Commerce Commission given authority by Congress to regulate trucking and carriers on inland waterways, 1935-40; Department of Transportation, 1966.) Seventh Plank: Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State,  the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan. (Department of Agriculture, 1862; Agriculture Adjustment Act of 1933 -- farmers will receive government aid if and only if they relinquish control of farming activities; Tennessee Valley Authority, 1933 with the Hoover Dam completed in 1936.) New farm control bills are before the Senate now. Eighth Plank: Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies especially for agriculture. (First labor unions, known as federations, appeared in 1820. National Labor Union established 1866. American Federation of Labor established 1886. Interstate Commerce Act of 1887 placed railways under federal regulation. Department of Labor, 1913. Labor-management negotiations sanctioned under Railway Labor Act of 1926. Civil Works Administration, 1933. National Labor Relations Act of 1935, stated purpose to free inter-state commerce from disruptive strikes by eliminating the cause of the strike. Works Progress Administration 1935. Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, mandated 40-hour work week and time-and-a-half for overtime, set "minimum wage" scale. Civil Rights Act of 1964, effectively the equal liability of all to labor.) Want a job? Comply with the government. Ninth Plank: 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.  (Food processing companies, with the cooperation of the Farmers Home Administration foreclosures, are buying up farms and creating "conglomerates" under the regulation of the government.) Now, “Food Desserts” will lead to food distribution authority to the government. In Russia, this Plank led to the starvation of the Ukrainian people in order to eliminate opposition to Socialism in Russia. Tenth Plank: Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.  (Gradual shift from private education to publicly funded began in the Northern States, early 1800's. 1887: federal money (unconstitutionally) began funding specialized education. Smith-Lever Act of 1914, vocational education; Smith-Hughes Act of 1917 and other relief acts of the 1930's. Federal school lunch program of 1935; National School Lunch Act of 1946. National Defense Education Act of 1958, a reaction to Russia's Sputnik satellite demonstration, provided grants to education's specialties. Federal school aid law passed, 1965, greatly enlarged federal role in education, "headstart" programs, textbooks, library books. Goals #32 & 41 of the 45 Goals to Overthrow America are compatible with this Plank. (Research source: Encyclopedia Britannica.) Online Guide To The Communist Manifesto Our young nation prospered as each individual was free to follow his dream as long as his actions did not inhibit the prosperity of others. Our Constitution was written to insure that our new government did not infringe on our freedoms, and therefore on our personal prosperity. The government could legislate penalties against those who stepped on the freedoms of others (protecting our liberties), but they could not legislate away freedoms (eliminating our liberties) in order to eliminate the need for the penalties . The Communists take the exact opposite view; the people should be under the thumb of the government, while making it look like the government was providing a benefit, not transferring freedoms from the people to the government. The loss of enough freedoms would result in the people becoming dependent on government for their very existence. Each of these laws by themselves appears harmless, but each is just a piece of a puzzle that, when the puzzle is completed, reveals a picture of precedent for the courts to consider in the surrender of remaining freedoms until the loss of so many small freedoms leaves the citizen with no freedoms left to lose. As President Obama said, the Constitution is a document of “negative liberties” which tells the Federal government what it can’t do to the people but doesn’t address what the government can do for the people. By his own understanding of the Constitution, the laws listed below are unconstitutional and so jeopardize the freedoms of Americans instead of protecting them.
