The U.S. economy expanded in the first quarter at the slowest pace in two years as American consumers reined in spending and companies tightened their belts in response to weak global financial conditions and a plunge in oil prices. Gross domestic product rose at a 0.5 percent annualized. The United States economy has never exceeded 3% annualized growth for any year under the Marxist/Progressive regime of Obama.
This is not just luck on the part of the Obama regime. This is great central planning, just the way Marx said it should be done and the way Lenin did it. Marx explained that economic growth at a rate greater than population growth benefited the evil and greedy capitalist. Therefore, through central planning, economic growth should be kept at or below population growth.
Lenin and Stalin learned they could accomplish this goal through total control and ownership of all productive property along with collectivizing the society. After the overthrow of Nicholas II, a bloody fight for power took place with the Bolsheviks, under the guidance of Lenin, able to gain power. Lenin collectivized all aspects of Russian society. He implemented total government control over production and began the process of centralized planning. The result was a society conforming to the dictates of the government. If any individual did not conform, they were ridiculed, chastised, and many times eliminated.
The Marxist/Progressives in the United States, mostly under the guise of the Democrat Party, began the same process that Lenin began when he gained power. Russia had not been a free economic system that had emerged as a capitalist nation at the time of Lenin, like the United States was in the early 1900’s. The process of collectivization in Russia was much less complicated than what Marxist/Progressives faced in the United States. Never the less, the Marxist/Progressives in the United States began the process.
Woodrow Wilson gave the process much recognition and a great impetus. The efforts of Wilson, to a large extent, set the stage that enabled Franklin Roosevelt, along with the many Communists in his administrations, to move that process of government control and enslavement to levels even beyond his greatest hopes.
By the time Obama took office, much of the machinery for collectivization was in place. Obama, along with Jarrett and Axelrod (the three of them are among the most learned and accomplished Marxist in the United States) were able to move the process of collectivization of the United States society to a point it resembled a true Marxist society. Central planning of the economy was now a reality. Conformity of the population to the communist ideals through political correctness was in place. Transformation of the education system to an indoctrination system had taken place. Control of the news media, mainly because of the indoctrination system established in the schools, was in place. The elimination of morals, long standing principles, and religion had taken place. Control of the productive forces of the economy still needed some work. Much of that control came about with the adoption of Obamacare, total control of the EPA, the BLM, and OSHA, and turning the IRS into a police force for the Marxist/Progressives movement.
Obama and the Marxist/Progressive movement had gained enough control over all aspects of the society so they could now make a final push for total collectivization of the United States society. The economy was now regulated by the forces of the government so the greedy and evil capitalists would not be able to control more wealth through a healthy economy. The wages of workers could be controlled. The health care of citizens would now be controlled by the government. Regulations were now in place to control wealth and share it as the Marxist/Progressives deem appropriate.
Obama should be pleased with the economy of the United States. It is performing just as Marx said it should and just how Obama wants it to perform; growth should grow at the same level or below the growth of the population. When this happens the capitalists will be controlled and the people will become more enslaved by the government. Collectivization will be the inevitable result, just as Marx predicted.
