Top 7 Marxist Communist Policies Being Implemented By Obama Today


Throughout history Communist leaders have seized power by promoting themselves as populists, and often completely hiding their own ideology. Indeed in a poll taken after Communist Hugo Chavez' first election victory in Venezuela, only 3% of the electors believed Chavez to be a Socialist, let alone a Communist. Currently 32% of Americans believe Obama to be a Socialist.

The initial stages of Communization of a country invariably begin with seven basic steps:

Seizing Control Over The Free Flow Of The Nation's Money

Obama has stated that he wants to convert the stock the US government now owns in the nation's banks from preferred stock, which is the case currently, to common stock. This modification in type of stock may seem irrelevant at first glance, but under further analysis it is the single greatest communist policy the US government has ever adopted: It means that the federal government will control all of the currently publicly traded major banks and financial institutions in the nation which are currently in the hands of individual shareholders. Not only will the current shareholders' rights be trampled, but the control of the nation's flow of money is the first keystone of communism.

Stripping Capitalists Of Their Assets

According to US bankruptcy code, secured creditors such as the ones who have outstanding debt against Chrysler and GM, have to be paid before unsecured creditors. That is the law. Obama has ignored this law, and seized the vast majority (89% in GM's case) of all "asset value" of the automakers and taken direct control or given it away for free to the unions. Karl Marx's theses were all based on the workers owning the means of production, and thus communism takes hold in America.

Changing The Structures Of Government To Suit

Obama has given the GOP until October to approve his health care plan which many experts have shown, would be as socialized as Cuba's. If the Republican Party does not meet his demands, the Democratic Party will simply change the very rules of the United States Senate to pass their legislation through simple majority, instead of the 60% which has been required by the Senate through history. Changing legislation to suit the leader is another common tactic of communist leaders from Chavez to Castro.

Taking Advantage Of A Crisis To Impose Communism

Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel published a book entitled The Plan which would require (yes, require) young Americans regardless of their political stripe to serve in a direct copy of Hugo Chavez' red-beret local militias. The Plan also promotes massive taxpayer funded programs as universally free university tuition and health care as well as a tax reform to ensure that the middle and upper classes are crushed by the enormous new government expenditures. Obama has already admitted such a "soak anyone making over $250,000/year" punitive tax policy. Emanuel is famous for his quote "you never want a serious crisis to go to waste…(it’s) an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before," which is the prototypical process whereby communists seize power, witness Lenin, Mao, Castro, Tito, et al.

Controlling Higher Education

Obama has already launched legislation to remove private lenders from student loans which would now all be provided by the federal government directly, so that it could choose in a totalitarian manner who receives the loans and who doesn't. Many educational institutions are up in arms over this legislation as it essentially shifts admissions policy from the colleges and universities to the federal government. Control of higher education as in Obama's Pell Grant entitlement is a universal characteristic of communism to ensure that the young are properly ideologically indoctrinated.

Punishing Residential Property Owners

Obama's enormous mortgage bailout legislation is little more than a full blown entitlement program. The plan forces the 92 percent of responsible home owners to heavily subsidize the irresponsible "ARM-ATM" mortgage holders who didn't read their ARM mortgages and used their home equity like ATMs. These taxes would be so overwhelming that many of the "responsible" majority of mortgage holders could lose their homes. The punishment leading to the elimination of property owners in favor of the state is a fundamental tenet of Marxism, as Karl wrote "the middle-class owner of property: This person must indeed, be swept out of the way, and made impossible."

Demolishing The Economy To Replace It With State Control

Obama has:

  • Handicapped American multinationals by denying them tax deferral, placing them at an enormous competitive disadvantage against corporations based anywhere else.
  • Launched entitlement programs which punish innovation and dry up funds for entrepreneurial start ups.
  • Stopped the Treasury from implementing any real recovery plans, discouraging private capital flow into the financial sector.
  • Stated "we have to spread the wealth around, we have to redistribute the wealth of this country through taxation," which is a paraphrasing of Marx's "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need."
  • Declared a "War On Business" as shown by his legislation that pharmaceutical corporations pay high rebate fees to Medicaid and promoting the importation of foreign drugs which could include low potency or outright counterfeit drugs into the nation. The financial outlook for US pharmaceutical companies has been decimated.
  • Placed nearly two thirds of a trillion dollars into a health reform reserve fund, which is the tip of the iceberg in the expectations of the cost of fully socialized medicine in America. USA Today has stated that every household in the United States would be on the hook for over half a million dollars.

All of these policies represent time-honored Communist policies specifically designed to devastate the free market economy as well as impoverish and punish the upper and middle classes leading to their elimination so that the Communist "Dictatorship Of The Proletariat" can be introduced. It is important to note that in each and every historical instance Communism has been introduced into democratic countries and they were all swiftly changed to totalitarian dictatorships of a single leader benefiting from a "Cult Of Personality."

Policies virtually identical to these were implemented by:

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin in 1917 Russia
Josip Broz Tito in 1945 Yugoslavia
Mao Zedong (Tse-tung) in 1949 China
Fidel Castro in 1959 Cuba
Hugo Chavez in 1999 Venezuela

and now they are being implemented by

Barack Hussein Obama in 2009 United States of America.

That is why has called Obama a "Manchurian Candidate" set to destroy the US economy once elected.

I just came across this article through Pinterest searching for articles for the kid's school project and found it interesting that I had trouble pinning it. I have heard that can happen on facebook where certain political opinions are banned. Just wondering if that same thing is happening with Pinterest?

I see no proof of anything you claim to be true. I see the opposite where all wealth has been placed in the hands of a very few and this has destroyed the ability to practice capitalism. Increase wages and give some of that wealth to the people who made them all that money and you would see greater profits.

It is amazing how many Zombies voted for this fraud and Jihadist. Hope and change for destruction of America.

All the Zombies and loosers lined up to vote for this complete fraud hoping to get some more goodies from the government.

No one will get anything but enslavement through oppression and Communism. It would be nice if only the idiots that voted for Obama got punished, as the rest of us do not deserve to be on this sinking ship of destruction.

O will go down as the biggest scam and fraud in the history of the world.

Obama is in the process of destroying the U.S. Dollar, destroying its buying power for everyone, foreseeable to ultimately cause the deaths of Senior Citizens and others on fixed incomes once their small incomes are ravaged by inflation. As the Dollar buys less more Americans will become unemployed as consumers are forced to purchase less. Obama knows he won’t be reelected under such economic circumstances. Historically leftists to achieve their agenda have moved on democracies when they are in civil unrest and economic chaos. If Obama is allowed to destroy the Dollar, Obama and his socialists/Marxists constituents appear ready to “change the face of America”, having built a "Fifth Column" of extreme leftists" in labor, pro-illegal immigration and other groups, supported by socialists and communists that appear intended to destroy America if the opportunity presents itself.

In the run up to Hitler and the Nazis taking power, the former German government disparate to pay its bills, relentlessly printed Reich Marks. Soon inflation put more Germans out of work and those working could not spend their paycheck fast enough, including 12000 Reich Marks for a loaf of bread. Germans were ready to accept any government that would provide jobs, even Hitler’s fascist government. If Obama and his Leftists destroy free enterprise, that will destroy most jobs in America, it is foreseeable millions of Americans might endorse and accept a socialist/communist form of government to feed their families. Americans should consider how Obama’s leftists might deal with millions of unemployed Americans that believe in Free Enterprise and Senior Citizens that have to be fed and housed should leftists take power. Historically communists have not treated well their “Non-Critical Citizens.”

Hal, this is probably the most informative list I have ever read. If we could get the people who are blinded by the celebrity of He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named to just read this and take it seriously, I would a) be a happy girl, b) need a new way to screen friends, and c) both a and b.........but I welcome the necessity of a new screening systen! WHY CAN'T PEOPLE SEE WHAT HE'S DOING?! Nevermind, I know it's b/c they don't want to...

The 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto follow. All 10 have been substantially implemented for a considerable length of time, and neither Democrat nor Republican will oppose them except in minor details. How many politicians, for example, advocate a complete abolition of government involvement in education - state, local and federal? (that would be item #10) How many call for the abolition of the Federal Reserve System? (item #5)

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. 2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. 3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels. 5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly. 6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State. 7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan. 8. Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture. 9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the

populace over the country. 10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, &c, &c.

Hey, I do too, but I've had Hubs deleted because the filters think that I'm scumbagging, so I don't let anything on that gives the evil Hub Filter Monster any ammo! :)

I don't understand why conservatives are called "the right" when they all seem to be so wrong. I made the mistake of voting for Reagan, then Shrub senior and I will never make the mistake of voting for a Republican again. They get into office, create a mess the entire time they are there and then blame it on everyone else. I have never seen a group of people that are so hell-bent on NOT accepting responsibility for their own actions like the people of the Republican Party. I simply do not understand how the Republicans can look at the eight years that junior was in office and think that we, as a country, had a leader that cared about the American people. Bush and Cheney were only interested in one thing; pushing their agenda forward-an agenda that benefited very few, mostly wealty people, and absolutley screwed the remainder of this country. Bush and Cheney should both have been put on trial for treason for the illegal acts THEY committed while they were in office. The fact here is that what you state in this farce of of hub is conjecture and pure opinion while the illegal acts committed by the previous adminstration have been well documented. The biggest problem I have with Obama is that he failed to investigate and prosecute the previous administration for committing illegal acts against this country. Finally, you don't see people on the left picking up arms and going into the woods training for the day when martial law goes into effect when there is a Republican president in office. That is because we are the sane group of people in this country who choose to think on their own rather than be led around like sheep listening to idiots like Beck, Limpbaugh and Hannity. I choose to think on my own and I think anyone with a brain in their head would choose to do the same.

pukerup on June 22, 2010:

It amazes me how every time a new president takes office how people talk irrationally about how we will be taken back to the dark ages and the country will be run by the military and we will be put into concentration camps and 90% of us will be eliminated or the economy is going to collapse and we will have another great depression because there will be no jobs or how the gov't is trying to centralize the banking system so the rich and powerful can control the flow of money. But you know what? I've seen presidents come and go and guess what; the sky didn't fall, we're not dead or dying and we don't live in a communist society. Get a grip and get a life. The only reason people post this crap is to cause fear and to use it to control the people who are scared. Think for yourself and spend more time worrying about your own life and your family and you will be just fine. There isn't a day that goes by that I worry about any of the nonsense talked about on this post and I never will because it's never going to happen.

America’s greatest threat is not from foreign enemies, but from Marxists that have slithered into U.S. Government.

Historically, when Socialists like Obama have been elected to government, they thrive like cancer—targeting healthy economic markets and individuals with new and higher taxes to pay for public welfare programs. Obama is a red diaper baby that inherently does not represent Americans, but a Marxist ideology—that mandates forcing socialism on U.S. Citizens—even if that means destroying the U.S. economy in addition to abolition of the Constitution. Obama’s has already forced unaffordable health insurance, new taxes and regulatory costs on businesses that will inhibit investment and hiring of new employees for years.

What might happen politically in America if the Obama government suddenly stopped extending unemployment and other assistance paid millions of Americans: In foreign countries where the economy and government went broke, millions of unemployed and others dependent on government handouts responded, by voting socialists into power, worsening the economy. If Obama spends America into bankruptcy, it is foreseeable millions of disparate Americans might accept, even welcome a hybrid form of Marxist/socialism.
