There seems to be doubt by many in this nation that we are moving towards Socialism.
After reading the Socialist Party USA website, which I have quoted below, I pray that we will wake up from our slumber and realize that our Republic is under attack. The proof is right here in there own words. Much of the Socialist agenda has already been implemented as you will read. As you will also read, a lot is being spoken of in mass media currently in order to sway public opinion on their side, as American’s are indoctrinated into Socialist teachings, while the ideals and philosophy of our Republic are no longer taught in our schools or even discussed in a positive way in the public arena. Our Founding Fathers are vilified or made irrelevant, our Constitution is stepped on and our Heritage in re-written. I encourage you to go to their website yourself for more information. There is nothing that Socialists aren’t aiming to control according to their own words. Some of it is cleverly worded, but the vast majority is blatantly spoken of. I urge you to take the time to read this, at least twice, let it seep in. If nothing else, read what is in bold and underlined, and then pass this on to everyone you know. Mostly, DON’T FORGET THIS. FAMILIARIZE yourself to what ENEMIES of freedom and of the UNITED STATES are secretly, quietly, planning and implementing right under our noses. Knowledge is power. Why isn’t the mainstream media reporting this? Is it not apparent they are complicit? Certainly the Socialists’ could not have accomplished and interjected as much of their agenda onto the United States if they did not have people of like minds in positions of power in many sectors and industries, including the media, all three branches of government, cabinet appointments, education, banking, etc.
PRAY for your family, and PRAY for the UNITED STATES.
May God Bless You!
SOCIALIST PARTY USA http://socialistparty-usa.org/
“WORKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!”
As we pursue a socialist transformation of society, we join with others in making radical demands on the existing system: demands that challenge the basic assumptions of a capitalist market economy while pointing the way to a new society.
Socialists participate in the electoral process to present socialist alternatives. The Socialist Party does not divorce electoral politics from other strategies for basic change. While a minority, we fight for progressive changes compatible with a socialist future. When a majority we will rapidly introduce socialist reforms, with priority to the elimination of the power of big business through public ownership and workers' control. We support electoral action independent of the capitalist-controlled two-party system.
By participating in elections at all levels of government, socialists educate the public about socialism, agitate for progressive reforms and socialist solutions, help organize movements of working people, and win victories of both immediate and long-term value.
The United States is the sole remaining global superpower. The U.S. government uses its overwhelming military power to consolidate its strategic hold over the entire world and to defend and advance the interests of U.S. owned corporations as they exploit the working people and natural resources of the entire planet. We stand in total opposition to U.S. imperialism and the current “war on terror” which is just another subterfuge for U.S. imperialism.
We call for the United States to immediately and unconditionally withdraw its forces from Iraq and Afghanistan
We call for an end to the U.S. occupation of the province of Guantanamo, Cuba
We call for an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank-East Jerusalem and Gaza, and an end to all U.S. aid to Israel, as a precondition for peace.
We call for the abolition of the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, and all other institutions of covert warfare
We stand for unconditional disarmament by the United States
We call for an immediate 50% cut in the military budget, followed by additional cuts, with the aim of rapidly reducing the military budget to less than 10% of its current level, with the "peace dividend" directed to essential social services and to the cost of cleaning up contaminated military sites.
We call for the disbanding of NATO and all other aggressive military alliances, and the closing of all overseas bases.
We call for an end to U.S. arms sales throughout the world
We call for the U.S. to pay off its debts to the United Nations, an end to veto power in the UN, and an end to permanent membership on the UN Security Council
We support the right of soldiers to form unions to represent their views and interests
The Socialist Party stands for a fundamental transformation of the economy, focusing on production for need not profit. So-called fair trade is meaningless as long as the world economy is dominated by a few massive corporations. Only a global transformation from capitalism to democratic socialism will provide the conditions for international peace, justice, and economic cooperation based on the large-scale transfer of resources and technology from the developed to the developing countries.
We call for a minimum wage of $15 per hour, indexed to the cost of living.
We call for a full employment policy. We support the provision of a livable guaranteed annual income.
We call for all financial and insurance institutions to be socially owned and operated by a democratically-controlled national banking authority, which should include credit unions, mutual insurance cooperatives, and cooperative state banks. In the meantime, we call for re-regulation of the banking and insurance industries.
We call for the restoration of the capital gains tax and luxury tax on a progressive, graduated scale.
We call for compensation to communities-- and compensation, re-training, and other support service for workers-- affected by plant and military base closings as stop-gap measures until we reach our goal of creating a socialist society totally separate from the global capitalist economy.
We support a program of massive federal investment in both urban and rural areas for infrastructure reconstruction and economic development.
The Socialist Party stands for the right of all workers to organize, for worker control of industry through the democratic organization of the workplace, for the social ownership of the means of production and distribution, and for international solidarity among working people based on common opposition to global capitalism and imperialism. We believe that the international organization of labor is the only way of combating the exploitation of workers in a global capitalist economy. Working people have no country, but rather an international bond based on class. Workers throughout the world have far more in common with each other across national boundaries than with their bosses in their own countries. Ultimately a socialist revolution must be an international revolution that cannot survive if confined to individual countries amidst capitalist imperialism.
We support militant, united labor action including hot cargo agreements, and boycotts, factory committees, secondary and sympathy strikes, sit-down strikes, general strikes, and ultimately the expropriation of workplaces.
We call for the repeal of the Hatch Act and the Taft-Hartley Act, the "hot cargo" provision of the Landrum-Griffin Act, and all so-called "right-to-work" laws.
We call for the same benefits for part-time workers as for full-time workers.
We call for increased health and safety regulation of business, and for increasing the size and enforcement power of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
We support the creation of a fund for workers which would pay a worker’s full wages and health insurance as well as necessary educational and/or retraining costs if that worker loses a job due to environmental transition, down-sizing, corporate dismantlement, or capital flight
We call for a 30 hour work week at no loss of pay, with six weeks annual paid vacation.
We call for public ownership and democratic control of all our natural resources in order to conserve resources, preserve our wilderness areas, and restore environmental quality.
The U.S. must immediately return to participation in international agreements, such as the Kyoto Protocol, limiting carbon emissions, and accept a major role in worldwide efforts to control global warming.
We call for placing full financial responsibility on private companies for prevention and clean up of their own toxic wastes and for full compensation of workers and residents adversely affected by environmental hazards
We call for strong, enforceable endangered species protection that focuses on habitat-centered protection for plants and animals.
We oppose any new nuclear power projects and call for the rapid phasing out of all nuclear power plants, and a ban on the export of nuclear technology.
Civil Rights - Bill of Rights
The Socialist Party is committed to the rights of free speech, free press, free assembly, and personal privacy, and the freedom of religious choice through the separation of church and state.
We condemn the so-called War on Terrorism and call for the immediate repeal of the U.S.A.P.A.T.R.I.O.T Acts and the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act.
We demand the exclusion of the military from domestic law enforcement.
We call for the abolition of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
We oppose so-called anti-terrorist measures and criminal code reforms that restrict legitimate dissent.
The Socialist Party works to build a world in which everyone will be able to freely move across borders, to visit and to live wherever they choose.
We recognize the central role global capitalism plays in forcing the immigration of people from the less developed to the more industrialized countries, often leading to further economic and social injustice.
1. We support secular democratic states, assuring equal rights to every citizen and resident in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. (http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/)
2. We oppose the militarization of the United States/Mexican border, and an increase in the service budget instead of the "military" budget of the INS.
3. We defend the rights of all immigrants to education, health care, and full civil and legal rights and call for an unconditional amnesty program for all undocumented people. We oppose the imposition of any fees on those receiving amnesty.
4. We call for an end to the use of "secret evidence" in deportation hearings, a ban on all immigration detentions and military tribunals, and full due process and habeus corpus rights in U.S. courts for all non-citizens on U.S. territory or in U.S. custody.
5. We demand an end to police raids in areas where immigrants congregate.
6. We oppose "guest worker" programs. We call for full citizenship rights upon demonstrating residency for six months.
Media and Intellectual Property
An ever-smaller band of huge corporations controls virtually all news and entertainment media. The Socialist Party stands for the right of ordinary people to express opinions and communicate freely by vastly extending the public sector of all forms of mass media. Ultimately, a genuine democratization of the mass media will require a democratic socialist transformation of society. Within such a society, free expression will flourish, allowing for the broadest expression of viewpoints and perspectives.
1. We support the breakup of large media companies so that no one company or individual owns more than one newspaper, radio or television station, or television channel. We call for the re-regulation of the communications industry (in particular, the assertion of public ownership rights over radio and television frequencies).
2. We call for government ownership of satellite and cable companies with revenues generated by these operations allocated to a publicly controlled fund to finance innovative visual and audio programming (including movies), over the air radio and television, and cable and satellite programming. The fund would also greatly increase the money going to community cable programming.
3. We support public funding of newspapers and magazines. Any non-profit organization that publishes a journal would receive public funding in proportion to its paid subscriber list.
4. We oppose all efforts to trim "fair use" rights, such as the right to excerpt a copyrighted work in a review.
5. We call for the repeal of all existing copyright extension laws.
6. We oppose legislation to force electronics manufacturers to build "Digital Rights Management" into computers and appliances.
7. We oppose private ownership of the Internet backbone. We call for direct public ownership of at least 50% of the total bandwidth and for democratic ownership and control of the Internet domain naming system.
Free and Fair Elections
We view electoral activity as an important component of the struggle for fundamental social change. Participation as socialists in local, state, and national elections is a valuable way to clarify our position on a wide range of issues, of broadly disseminating our principles and programs, and of asserting and reaffirming our commitment to the democratic process. We believe that capitalism is fundamentally incompatible with democracy and that true democracy can only be achieved with society’s transformation to socialism.
We call for the closing of the loophole sanctioned by the Supreme Court which allows candidates to spend an unlimited sum of their personal wealth on their own campaigns.
We call for the elimination of the Electoral College and support instant run-off voting of all elected officials.
We demand greater access to media for all political parties and free, equal access to all forms of mass media for all candidates
We call for the restoration of the right to vote for all citizens incarcerated in jails and prisons
We call for the development of alternative energy sources including solar, geothermal, wind, hydropower, and biomass to end dependence on fossil fuels. (WHAT THEY MEAN IS DON"T DRILL AND CONTINUE DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL)
Arts and Culture
We support the right of artists to join and form unions to protect their labor rights and to form collectives to advance common artistic visions
We support guaranteed incomes and grants for artists and performers
The Socialist Party recognizes the right of students of all ages to a free, quality education in a safe and supportive environment, and of all school employees to good wages, benefits, and working conditions.
We support public child care starting from infancy, and public education starting at age three, with caregivers and teachers of young children receiving training, wages, and benefits comparable to that of teachers at every other level of the educational system.
We oppose merit pay for teachers, standardized testing, competition between schools within the same district, the sale of on-campus advertising in order to raise funds, and the increasing dependence of post-secondary institutions on corporate funding.
We call for vigorous affirmative action programs so that the faculty and student-body of all schools reflect the community at large in terms of race/ethnicity, gender, and economic background. We support multicultural, multilingual, experimental education at all levels.
We support student, parent, and teacher control of curriculum formation, and in the hiring and dismissal procedures of school personnel, through the formation of local school/community committees.
We call for student representation on school boards, and for those boards to be fully accountable to students, parents, teachers, and school workers.
We support full and unrestricted health education programs, including sex education, with curriculum input from parents, students, teachers, and health care professionals.
We oppose school-sponsored prayer or any other religious practice in public schools, and all efforts to limit the teaching of evolution or to combine it with non-scientific theories.
The Socialist Party recognizes the right of all people to high quality, low cost housing.
We call for a vast increase in Section 8 housing subsidies as one element of major public investment in the construction of low cost, scattered site, community-based, high quality housing.
We call for rent control for all rental units, and the right of tenants to organize.
We call for an end to home foreclosures
We call for the creation of a fully funded high-speed national rail system with fares set low enough to be a viable alternative to the use of the automobile.
We call for an end to the expansion of the interstate highway system and the reduction of combustion engine/auto based transport.
We call for government subsidized programs to expand safe routes for foot and bicycle paths
We support federally funded auto insurance.
We call for public ownership and worker control of the airline industry
We call for public ownership and worker control of existing corporate farms, support exiting state bans on corporate farms, and support a federal ban on the establishment of new corporate farms.
We call for a parity system that guarantees farmers a full return on the cost of production
We call for family farmers whose land was taken in foreclosures to be given their land and equipment back, or be given comparable land and equipment or monetary compensation
We call for the elimination of the use of pesticides
We encourage the reintroduction of hemp farming.Follow @TheWeepingEagle
