One vision cannot exist with the principles upon which our nation was founded, and the other vision cannot exist without those principles. This brings about the clear divide we are now witnessing in our nation. This divide is defined by the clear distinction between individualism and collectivism. Collectivism is a term that encompasses the doctrines of Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Progressives, and the doctrines proclaimed by the Democrat party of America which is in reality the Marxist/Progressive Party.
Karl Marx is to collectivism what Adam Smith is to capitalism; that is although both existed prior to the writings of Marx and Smith, these two are credited with clearly defining the doctrines and principles of each. A study of Karl Marx reveals that the doctrines of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party is as much of an adherent to Collectivism as were Lenin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, and Chavez. Time and space limit me in outlining all of the doctrines, but these are a few of the most prominent. I would strongly suggest you obtain the book I wrote, “The Road To Tyranny, Individualism to Collectivism” to understand how the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) vision for the United States is a vision founded in Collectivism and is doomed to failure.
Marx said that a society must be destroyed so the new classless society which will be totally conforming and totally equal can be built. To accomplish this destruction, all long standing principles must be obliterated. For the United States this would be the principles outlined in the Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, and The Bill of Rights. The Collectivist movement, which has been active in the United States since at least since the early 1900’s has been working to accomplish this goal. Collectivism cannot exist so long as the United States adheres to our long-standing principles. Freedom cannot exist if these are obliterated.
The Declaration of Independence states that certain of our rights such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are endowed or given by our Creator or God. This puts God in the position of ultimate sovereign. The Collectivist believes that the ultimate sovereign is government and the first and only allegiance the citizen has is to government. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have said that government has the right to determine who has a right to life, not God, and so they have declared that the life of an unborn child can be taken in the name of “a women’s right to choose.” The Marxist/Progressives declare the opinion of the Supreme Court in Roe vs. Wade to be the law of the land. When the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) proclaim abortion as the law of the land they are denouncing the Constitution of the United States which states that only the Legislative branch can legislate.
The Constitution of the United States limits the role of government and our founders understood that freedom and independence can only exist when the role of government is limited. The Marxist doctrine thrives only when government controls all facets of the life of the citizen. Marx was the first proponent of whom I am aware that called for public education of all citizens. Marx understood that with public education the state had total control over the values being taught within the state. The Collectivist understands that to bring about their totally conforming classless society, it is critical to indoctrinate the youth of a society. The Collectivist also states that all children are the province of the state and not the family. Lenin, as did future collectivists including the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats), set as a primary goal the destruction of the core family. Lenin did this by legalizing and encouraging the murder of unborn children, encouraging adultery and free sex, encouraging divorce, and following the doctrine of Marx Lenin insisted the definition of morality must be changed so all behavior is considered moral.
The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have promoted the role of government to greatly exceed the role intended by the founders so that in today’s America government controls, not only the life of the unborn, but the education of the very young and protects behaviors that are the very soul of a morally corrupt society which greatly enhances the destruction of the core family unit. The government even punishes mothers and fathers who try to instill their values in their children when those values contradict the dictates of the state.
The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution for the purpose of reinforcing in the mind of citizens that the rights of the individuals are protected always, even when the protection of those rights permit contradictions to the ideas of the then majority. Marx said that society must be of one class and since it is of only one class it would be considered a classless society. Within this classless society all people would conform to the same ideology. This is in direct contrast to the intent of the founding fathers. The principles upon which the United States was founded protected the individual whose beliefs did not conform to the then thinking of the majority. Our founders understood the freedoms protected in the first amendment were critical to freedom and independence. Marx, along with all collectivists, including the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) understand that these protected freedoms do not promote conformity. Conformity is critical to a Collectivist society. Thus, we have seen the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) attempt to redefine these individual freedoms through legislation, court rulings, executive orders and regulations, and through MOB rule. Violence and intimidation have always been key tools employed by the Collectivist.
We have two very distinct visions for the Untied States. Those on the right see an America that encourages and celebrates the individual, protecting the rights of all individuals even when they disagree, that believes the core family is the strength of a free and independent nation, that believes the values of children should be taught by the parents and not by government, that the less government we have the stronger is our nation, and that God is the giver of our basic rights and is ultimate sovereign of all.
The Collectivist believes in the supremacy or sovereignty of the state, that the rights and dreams of the individual are the province of government with all allegiance due government, and that long-standing principles, morality, and religion have no place in their perceived all conforming, totally equal, and classless society. This vision has always led to a total destruction of society, both socially and financially.
These are the two visions presented to Americans today. Understand under which you wish to live and then cast your vote accordingly.
