On Socialism....

As I said last year, the Democratic Party has been hijacked by Socialists. And make no mistake about it, these socialists are waiting for the most opportune moment to overthrow this government and to install a tyrannical regime. It was Pope John Paul II who reminded us that, "..the fundamental error of socialism is anthropological in nature. Socialism considers the individual person simply as an element, a molecule within the social organism, so that the good of the individual is completely subordinated to the functioning of the socioeconomic mechanism. Socialism likewise maintains that the good of the individual can be realized without reference to his free choice, to the unique and exclusive responsibility which he exercises in the face of good or evil. Man is thus reduced to a series of social relationships, and the concept of the person as the autonomous subject of moral decision disappears, the very subject whose decisions build the social order. From this mistaken conception of the person there arise both a distortion of law, which defines the sphere of the exercise of freedom, and an opposition to private property. A person who is deprived of something he can call 'his own,' and of the possibility of earning a living through his own initiative, comes to depend on the social machine and on those who control it. This makes it much more difficult for him to recognize his dignity as a person, and hinders progress toward the building up of an authentic human community." (Centesimus Annus, No. 13).

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." - Winston Churchill.

"Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude." - Alexis de Tocqueville.

"Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it." - Thomas Sowell.

Socialism is a cancer in the community. And the Obama administration is chock full of Communist-radicals who intend to bring this country to utter ruin and chaos. Wake up Americans....wake up before it's too late to do anything about it. We are losing our freedoms, the freedoms that many generations of Americans died for.

"American Communists squawk endlessly about how pro-lifers seek to "destroy the Constitution" by seeking to outlaw abortion. Yet Communists have sworn a deadly and unholy oath to destroy this country violently through revolution, throw out the Constitution, and establish "A glorious People's Socialist State" in its place. In other words, these lowly flag-burning hypocrites are hiding behind the very document that they have vowed to utterly destroy.

After the Supreme Court ruled that it was permissible to desecrate the American flag, pro-aborts gleefully spat on, wiped their noses on, urinated on, and burned American flags in at least a dozen cities: San Francisco, Portland, Oregon, Atlanta, Boston, New York City, Rochester, New York, Chicago, Iowa City, Cleveland, Minneapolis, and Los Angeles. In San Francisco, they ran through the streets, screaming "Fuck the police! Make dope legal! Keep abortion legal!" In New York, they vandalized numerous buildings and blocked the Brooklyn Bridge"

I like this part of the EWTN article..."Target for Destruction: The Family.

The Communist Party supports the family only if it can be made to efficiently inculcate good Socialist principles in its children. The following passage regarding life after the longed-for Revolution in the United States is taken from the American Revolutionary Communist Party's New Programme; "The right to abortion will be guaranteed ... As far as the policy toward the family, it will be recognized for what it is: Not some holy or sacred institution to be preserved for all time ... not only will the family be a secondary form for determining children's upbringing, but its influence in promoting conservatism among its members, especially the women and children, will be actively combatted. While the parents will still have significant responsibility for their children, this does not mean they are "theirs," and there will be struggle to prevent parents from imposing old values, and conservative, non-revolutionary thinking generally on the children."[5]

Do you ever get the uncomfortable feeling that these 'good Socialist values' are already being programmed into your children in our public schools? That is why the National Education Association so fanatically opposes home schooling and the voucher system because they cause the NEA to lost control of your children, and this naturally must be prevented at all costs.

The bottom line is that Christians cannot be permitted to teach their children "conservative, non-revolutionary thinking."

We're witnessing this all across society. Radical homosexual groups want to redefine marriage and legalize same-sex "marriage," and our children are being taught that this is simply a normal variant of sexuality when it is perversion.

Thank God for those of you who are leading a counter-revolution.

Pope Pius XI, Encyclical Letter Quadragesimo anno, on reconstruction of the social order:

Yet let no one think that all the socialist groups or factions that are not communist have, without exception, recovered their senses to this extent either in fact or in name. For the most part they do not reject the class struggle or the abolition of ownership, but only in some degree modify them. Now if these false principles are modified and to some extent erased from the program, the question arises, or rather is raised without warrant by some, whether the principles of Christian truth cannot perhaps be also modified to some degree and be tempered so as to meet Socialism half-way and, as it were, by a middle course, come to agreement with it. There are some allured by the foolish hope that socialists in this way will be drawn to us. A vain hope! Those who want to be apostles among socialists ought to profess Christian truth whole and entire, openly and sincerely, and not connive at error in any way. If they truly wish to be heralds of the Gospel, let them above all strive to show to socialists that socialist claims, so far as they are just, are far more strongly supported by the principles of Christian faith and much more effectively promoted through the power of Christian charity.

But what if Socialism has really been so tempered and modified as to the class struggle and private ownership that there is in it no longer anything to be censured on these points? Has it thereby renounced its contradictory nature to the Christian religion? This is the question that holds many minds in suspense. And numerous are the Catholics who, although they clearly understand that Christian principles can never be abandoned or diminished seem to turn their eyes to the Holy See and earnestly beseech Us to decide whether this form of Socialism has so far recovered from false doctrines that it can be accepted without the sacrifice of any Christian principle and in a certain sense be baptized. That We, in keeping with Our fatherly solicitude, may answer their petitions, We make this pronouncement: Whether considered as a doctrine, or an historical fact, or a movement, Socialism, if it remains truly Socialism, even after it has yielded to truth and justice on the points which we have mentioned, cannot be reconciled with the teachings of the Catholic Church because its concept of society itself is utterly foreign to Christian truth.
