“YOU THE PEOPLE” have spoken and you’ve chosen for your new “Fearless Leader” the outright Marxist, Obama-Rama-Lama-Ding-Dong, over the semi-secret Socialist, John McNeocon. All of those knives that McCain stabbed into the back of true conservatism as well as into the butt of his own pseudo-“conservative” political party through the years have returned to pierce his own heart. The Chicken McNuggets have come home to roost.

[Good riddance, John McNeocon, good riddance! Because I am a Constitutionalist (i.e., a REAL conservative), you couldn’t even win my vote here in your own state of Airheadzona.]

The 2008 presidential race reminded me of a great, old Far Side cartoon: There’s a man standing at the entrance to Hell, struggling to decide which of two doors to walk through. One door is marked “Damned if you do” and the other “Damned if you don’t.” The devil stands at the man’s back, jabbing a pitchfork into him and saying, “C’mon, c’mon – it’s either one or the other.” That was America’s presidential race this year – you were damned if you voted for McCain and damned if you didn’t. A slight variation on the Hobson’s choice.

As I wrote to a friend of mine the night before the election, regardless of which candidate was going to win on November 4th, it was destined to be a sad day for America but a “Red-letter day” for Socialism.

However, in speaking to my friend, The Great L.C., at work last night, I mentioned to him that it suddenly occurs to me that the vast majority of Americans have been so damned dumbed-down by the education system, the politicians, and the media, that they really don’t understand that Socialism is the antithesis of what the Founding Fathers of this country planned and created for us. Americans have become so accustomed to hearing the word “Socialism” that it no longer raises one’s hackles like it should and once did; the word feels so soft and gentle in the mouth and rolls off the tongue wrapped in such warm fuzz (much like “Charmin” sounds nicer and is more appealing than the term “toilet paper”) that it has no effect on the American Mind. The word “Marxism”, on the other hand, still leaves an unpleasant taste in the mouth (at least for those who never spent more than ten minutes captive in a United States college). We traditional conservatives have got to stop sugarcoating this dire predicament with kinder, gentler words like Liberalism and Socialism.

I told L.C. last night that seeing as how, for all intents and purposes, Marxism and Socialism are ideological sisters and there is almost no difference between them worth mentioning*, that hereafter, no one will find me using the word Socialism. From now on, I will be calling a spade a spade, a Red a Red, a Socialist a Marxist.

(*other than the fact that, because of the power-mad heart of man, Marxism has never gotten beyond its Communist dictator phase. )
For those of you who have been damned dumbed-down by your college professors, your Time magazine articles, and your Democrat or Republican Marxists of choice, I want to make sure that we’re all on the same page here as I open this book to a new chapter. To that end, let me remind you of what the ten essential planks of Marxism are – just in case you don’t know any more about The Communist Manifesto than you know about the U.S. Constitution:

#1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.

#2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

#3. Abolition of all right of inheritance.

#4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

#5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly. [Can you say “Federal Reserve, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the nationalization of the banking industry”?]

#6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.

#7. 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.

#8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

#9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of population over the country.

#10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc., etc.

If you have any question about whether or not this is generally the governmental territory in which the American Republic now resides, then make certain you click on this link and read Mark Schmidt's analysis: Marxism, American Style
Hokey-Smoky, Dopey, doesn’t that sound dangerously close to America 2008? Hmmm?

“Wait a minute, Stephen! Do you mean to say that Socialism is basically Marxism and that the United States is well on its way to institutionalizing all of the primary principles of The Communist Manifesto?”
Yup, that’s what I’m tellin’ ya, College-Degree-Boy. You a smart one! And make NO mistake about THIS:

The United States is not becoming a Marxist nation because it has tried Constitutional government and found it unworkable or detrimental to the well-being of the People. Oh, NO, sir! The United States is becoming a Marxist nation because we haven’t adhered to even the most fundamental of Constitutional principles in about 100 years. (Few people alive today can even imagine what a Constitutional American Republic might look like.) We are becoming Marxists because we unwittingly continue to elect Marxist presidents, senators, and congressmen; we are conditioned by a Marxist media 24/7 and by Marxist teachers and professors throughout our structured school life; and when these anti-American forces steer us away from the U.S. Constitution and toward The Communist Manifesto, the Americonned People can’t recognize the difference because they are not near sufficiently versed in their country’s founding documents. We The People are pathetically uneducated in The American Way!

And in a country where The People elect their own leaders, ultimately the citizenry bears full responsibility for the spiritual, social, and economic condition of its nation. We The People are our own worst enemy. We can’t expect Marxists to promote anything but Marxism, but we ought to be able to expect that The People would discontinue listening to them and electing them, for crying out loud!

A Liberal is a Socialist is a Marxist. And so is a Neoconservative. The Neoconservative is a Trotskyite, the Liberal is a Stalinist, and both are Marxists. Comprende, Comrade?

From this day forward, you can expect me to stop using the “Charmin” word and begin using – exclusively – the “toilet paper” term: Socialism goes Marxism. How ya like them (RED) apples?

My prayer for this nation today, which yesterday elected an unabashed Marxist to lead it, somewhat echoes the prayer said long ago by America’s future King: God, forgive them, one more time, for they do not know what they do.
OK, now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, on a lighter note…..

There’s this buddy of mine, a cool dude who goes by the pseudonym WARRIOR POET – that’s a reference to the Old Testament’s King David. Now Ol’ WP is really disgusted with the lies, the deception, and the manipulation of the political process, and he became so dog-tired by this long presidential campaign that he told me he was disinclined to participate.

While I certainly could relate to what my friend Warrior Poet was feeling, I also believe that it is not just our right, but our obligation or responsibility as citizens of this country, to voice our opinions in the elections. So, over the last couple of weeks, I attempted to convince WP that he should vote for someone… anyone (well, maybe not one of those two Marxists who were getting all the headlines). It seemed that I was unconvincing, but to my small surprise, early on the morning of Tuesday, November 4th, an e-mail came to me from Warrior Poet, and in the subject line he’d written, “I DID IT.”

Now what you need to know about Warrior Poet is that he is a forty-something year-old Black man living in Connecticut. (But let me assure you, he was definitely NOT one of those Black Panthers camped out in front of a Philadelphia polling place yesterday attempting to intimidate McCain voters!) Here is what my friend wrote to me:

It's 9:30 am here on the East Coast where I reside in my solidly "Blue State" and I'm just dropping you a line letting you know that I have already voted. For who you ask? That information will stay with me, and me only. The church where I vote is practically next door to me and surprisingly there wasn't much of a line. I was in and out in 10 minutes.

I got your email and will respond when time permits, but I figured I'd put your patriotic mind at ease. : )
Funny sidebar. I'm a watcher, an observer, I walk slowly and try to "take life in" you know what I'm sayin? Anyway, as I was making my way to the polls I found it hilarious that each "Obama campaigner" smiled at me and patted me on the back, handed me some literature (a few of the black ones said "let's do this brotha" and "it's our time"), meanwhile not one of the "McCain people" even looked me in the eye. Seems everyone just knew who I was voting for. Gee, I wonder why that was?
I replied in part:

Now that IS funny! Too bad you don't do any Blogging because that would make a good Blog Bit.

>>[I have already voted. For who you ask? That information will stay with me, and me only.]<<

That's fair enough.
.So, who'd you vote for?
.I'll tell you who I'm going to vote for (in about 30 minutes from now) if you tell me who you voted for.
I'm just kidding, ya, man. You can keep it quiet if you feel you should. Besides, I'm guessing "Jesus" but hoping "Ron Paul." I'm sure, anyhow, that you didn't vote for the Marxist or the Socialist, and that pleases me enough.
Warrior Poet gave me my last good chuckle of the day when he came back with this:

Ok, I wrote in Daffy Duck. He was always my favorite, and I think he can bring profound change to our desperate nation. Plus I figure we're gonna have a Looney Tune in office regardless who wins. It might as well be one that makes me laugh.
