Communist goal #15 Capture one or both of the political parties in the US

This is goal #15 laid out by the communists in the early 1960s.   Albert Herlong, Jr. a Florida Congressman from 1949-69 read them into the Congressional Record Thursday, Jan 10, 1963.

15) Capture one or both of the political parties in the US.

The success of this goal is certainly debatable.  There is no question but that the modern Democratic party has found in the past success of government entitlement programs like Johnson’s “Great Society” an electoral strategy that works.  Promise free stuff from the government, and you win elections.  Just make sure you promise a better government freebie than the other guy.  Socialism, or at least the idea that the government can solve peoples problems, is certainly alive and well in modern America.  The truth of the matter is the government never came across a problem they could solve.  Solving the problem would mean the end of the program, and the people running the program have a vested interest in not ending the program.  Therefore the problem never gets solved.

The truly disturbing thing is that many of these communists goals have actually come to pass in the last 30 years.  Count back 30 years, make note of the Presidents since then, and think about who controlled the House and Senate.  The Republicans have been in power the better part of those 3 decades.  What does that say about the Republican party?  Ronald Reagan took power almost 25 years ago.  Since then we have only had a Democratic President for 8 years.

So, have the communists captured one or both political parties?  I don’t know.  Certainly nobody would admit to that.  The dramatic swing towards socialism is unmistakable.  American ideals are being undermined by our own government, and the people have been conditioned to hold out their hand.

The way back is for the people to get fed up.  Had enough?

  2. I would say that both Party’s are moving towards Socialism; just different aspects of it.

    The Democrats seem to embrace socialism on Economic issues and the Republicans seem to embrace it on issues where they are intervening in the affairs of the fifty states to an extent and on economic issues to a lesser extent then the Dems…
