After watching Obama fire the CEO of General Motors, the first thing that needs to be asked is where did he acquire the power. Flipping through the Constitution, that particular power is not there for the Executive Branch. It is not in the Legislative either. So, it is safe to say Obama violated the Constitution when he fired Rick Wagoner.
However, what is lost in the debate is what is really going on. The government just told Chrysler to work a buyout with Fiat and fired the CEO of GM. This is unprecedented overreaching of authority, which no one in government has. The government is telling banks what to do. They are controlling insurance companies. The question must be asked what is Obama, Congress and Democratic Party doing. Is there so motive to why they are moving so fast and attacking the liberties they are attacking.
Obama has been called a Marxist. You get a great lesson from the American Thinker. This is based on what he is saying and the policies he is supporting and that are passing in Congress. Since becoming President, the government has attacked the following rights:
1st Amendment with suggesting the Fairness Doctrine
2nd Amendment with suggesting the assault weapon ban and many other regulations
4th Amendment with attacks on privacy and probable cause
9th Amendment with everything they are doing
10th Amendment with the passing of the Stimulus Bill that tells states what to do and rewrites their Constitution
13th Amendment with the passing to Obama Youth Bill (GIVE Act). It amounts to slavery
And…the list goes on and on…
When the actions of the government in the last 50 some days are presented this way, it obvious they are trashing the Constitution and the People’s liberties. But, what is their plan. I have been saying that Obama is following a playbook. Whose could be debated.
But…I present for your review the Party’s plan:
JOBS AND ECONOMIC SECURITY
-Support the Employee Free Choice Act to allow workers to gain union representation without harassment or recrimination.

-Restore tax rates on the rich and corporations to 1970 levels.
-Restore and increase federal funding for human needs. Enact a refundable child tax credit.
Scary isn’ it! So, this is the Party’s plan, but it is not the Democratic Party’s. It is the Communist Party’s plan. The scary thing is you cannot tell the difference between their platforms anymore.
It is so obvious that they want to destroy the fabric of American society and create chaos by unraveling our economy.
Now, if you review the Communist Manifesto written by Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx in 1848, you can see what they have implemented and what could be on the horizon.
10 Conditions For Transition To Communism
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 right of inheritance.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
6. Centralization 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 labour. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equal distribution of the population 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
When you look at the centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly and the centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State, you see what they just did with the banks and car companies.
So, we can see whose playbook the Democrats are using. The Communists! Karl Marx's! You can find comparisons with countless Democratic policies and these platforms.
We are at a crossroads in history where are society and freedoms are under assault like no other time in our history from the enemy within. We must not go into that that darkness of Marxism, Fascism, and tyranny. We must stand up and pronounce we, the People, have the power and not the government before we no longer can.
