This article outlines what Hal Licino believes to be the top 7 Marxist policies that Obama and his administration have implemented in the US today. The particulars for each of the 7 policies are alarming indeed. The author says:
Throughout history Communist leaders have seized power by promoting themselves as populists, and often completely hiding their own ideology. Indeed in a poll taken after Communist Hugo Chavez' first election victory in Venezuela, only 3% of the electors believed Chavez to be a Socialist, let alone a Communist. Currently 32% of Americans believe Obama to be a Socialist.
The initial stages of Communization of a country invariably begin with seven basic steps:
Seizing Control Over The Free Flow Of The Nation's Money
Stripping Capitalists Of Their Assets
Changing The Structures Of Government To Suit The Agenda
Taking Advantage Of A Crisis To Impose Communism
Controlling Higher Education
Punishing Residential Property Owners
Demolishing The Economy To Replace It With State Control
* Handicapped American multinationals by denying them tax deferral, placing them at an enormous competitive disadvantage against corporations based anywhere else.
* Launched entitlement programs which punish innovation and dry up funds for entrepreneurial start ups.
* Stopped the Treasury from implementing any real recovery plans, discouraging private capital flow into the financial sector.
* Stated "we have to spread the wealth around, we have to redistribute the wealth of this country through taxation," which is a paraphrasing of Marx's "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need."
* Declared a "War On Business" as shown by his legislation that pharmaceutical corporations pay high rebate fees to Medicaid and promoting the importation of foreign drugs which could include low potency or outright counterfeit drugs into the nation. The financial outlook for US pharmaceutical companies has been decimated.
* Placed nearly two thirds of a trillion dollars into a health reform reserve fund, which is the tip of the iceberg in the expectations of the cost of fully socialized medicine in America. USA Today has stated that every household in the United States would be on the hook for over half a million dollars.
All of these policies represent time-honored Communist policies specifically designed to devastate the free market economy as well as impoverish and punish the upper and middle classes leading to their elimination so that the Communist "Dictatorship Of The Proletariat" can be introduced. It is important to note that in each and every historical instance Communism has been introduced into democratic countries and they were all swiftly changed to totalitarian dictatorships of a single leader benefiting from a "Cult Of Personality."
Policies virtually identical to these were implemented by:
Vladimir Ilyich Lenin in 1917 Russia
Josip Broz Tito in 1945 Yugoslavia
Mao Zedong (Tse-tung) in 1949 China
Fidel Castro in 1959 Cuba
Hugo Chavez in 1999 Venezuela

Obama has done more to polarize this country racially and politically, when he promised to change the culture of Washington DC, and to be a uniter.
He has used the race card repeatedly.
He has been arrogant and belligerent.
He has demonized dissent.
He has vilified his opposition and has even set policies to threaten them.
He has created more class warfare.
He has created more government dependency.
He has created more secrecy in government.
He has weakened this country financially and militarily.
He has debased the dignity of the office of the president with many of his actions.
He has ignored Constitutional principles.
He has blocked justice from being achieved in our Justice Department.
He has consistently lied.
The election on November 2nd is crucial.
We must elect people who will stop Obama's agenda and who will Restore the Republic.
Vote OUT the Socialists and Progressive Democrats, and anyone else who ignores the Constitution and the Rule of Law.
Let's begin to rebuild this nation and have a true recovery.
