If You Were A Socialist and Wanted to Overthrow the United States Government…

If you were a socialist or even a communist looking to overthrow the United States government, what would you do?

……..(see here, here, here, and most recently here)

4. The candidate should be cool and confident;

36. Take greater control over food supply

………(see here)

37. Threaten most vulnerable of our population in order to keep pushing debt crisis resulting from unsustainable overspending

38. Debauch the currency by forcing The Fed to monetize gross overspending, leading to high and rapid inflation

These are some of the less disputable things that have already happened. There are other things a socialist could do if he could get an infiltrator into the White House and attempted to fundamentally transform the United States.

The key to understanding the international socialist agenda is that it is incremental, systematic, and intentional.

  1. Seems we currently have that sort of individual in the oval office in spin city east, home of the thought police.

  2. Obama is a travesty and a shitty president as your article demonstrates, but it has nothing to do with socialism which is why you can’t be taken seriously. Hint: you use the word socialism like the Obama people use the word racist. Now neither word has any meaning or value.

    1. I studied socialism at the doctoral level and I know completely what it means. There is no such thing as socialism in practice; it is a fairy tale would-be elites tell to gullible people. The road to socialism is always fascism in practice. And that road literally never ends, because the state never withers away.

    2. What a load of bunk. Just because YOU dismiss almost 200 years of actual socialist history, grossly misinterpet the socialist actions of the current administration and utterly fail to connect the obvious socialist behaviors of the president doesn’t mean that these things do not exist. I teach history, and have actively read history for over 50 years. I can tell you that you need to open your mind and begin ingesting some alternative points of view. To claim that socialism doesn’t exist in practice is absurd.

      1. You sound like a typical, socialist dreamer. It’s scary that you are a history teacher. I hope that it is kindergarten level, so others may have a chance to undo the trauma that you impart on the psyches of our children. You loathsome progressives are filthy.

      2. Oh, really? Give me an example of a socialist utopia where “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”? Where has the state withered away under socialism? Where private property and capital are completely abolished?

        Thanks for playing.

  3. The socialist Utopia is certainly a fantasy, as Mr. Becker as illustrated. I believe socialism at its core is essentially man trying to right “wrongs” in this world that will only be righted by God himself. In practice socialism, is just a continuation of mans rejection of God and his judgement in the garden of Eden. Socialism is anti-God and pro-humanism. This problem is as old as our history.
