The principles of the "progressive" governance are very closely aligned with the ten planks of Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto:
1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes. Zoning laws, school and property taxes, Bureau of Land Management. Rancher Cliven Bundy knows all about that.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
Paying your “fair share” – sound familiar?
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
The “Death tax”
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
Government seizures and tax liens. Oh yes, remember that little problem with the IRS and Tea Party organizations
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
Hello, Federal Reserve.
6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.
Your un-elected FCC, DOT and FAA.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of wastelands, 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.
Fight for $15!!
9. 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.
HUD is now mandating that low-income housing be available in more affluent neighborhoods to “promote housing mobility” and “address residential segregation.”
10. Free education for all children in public schools.
And now they’re pushing for free college. How else will you indoctrinate?
There is a definite philosophical sea change occurring in America. It’s the long war, the long march as Chairman Mao put it…Obama called it a fundamental transformation. And we’re witnessing it happen in the city that gave birth to this Constitutional Republic, Philadelphia.http://www.allenbwest.com/allen/bills-speech-im-convinced-convention-something-much-worse-hillary
