In Their Own Words: Lenin, Stalin, Obama, and Hillary
By Andrew Thomas

It is beneficial to remind ourselves periodicallyof the realities in the struggle between Constitutionalism / Capitalism and Marxism-Leninism.  It is a continual struggle, whether we acknowledge it or not.  And the enemy of America as a constitutional republic with a capitalistic economic system is Marxism-Leninism, whether it be characterized as communism, socialism, progressivism, leftism, statism, or liberalism (in its current state).

Historically, we can consider the birth of the fusion between Marxism and Leninism to be in 1917, when Vladimir Lenin first took power as the leader of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, later to be known as the USSR.  Lenin was the leader of the Bolshevik Revolution that gave the world its first taste of socialism, established as Communism.  He transformed the political philosophy of Marxism
into his own brand, Marxism-Leninism.

  Here are a few of his famous quotations1:

Quote

    "The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation."

    "One man with a gun can control 100 without one."

    "A lie told often enough becomes the truth."

    "Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted."

    "The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them in parliament."

    "The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency."

    "The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses."

    "Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism."

    "Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever."

    "There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel."

    "Democracy is indispensable to socialism."

    "It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed."


Joseph Stalin took over leadership of the new USSR after Lenin's death.  He was ruthless in crushing dissent, killing thousands of counter-revolutionaries and political opponents through military actions and political purges.  His singular achievement was in killing seven million Ukrainians by starving them to death, a triumph of socialist collective power over political opposition known to history as the Holdomor.

 These are some of his better-known quotations1:

Quote

    "It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."

    "The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic."

    "We don't let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns?"

    "Death solves all problems - no man, no problem."

    "Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed."

    "When we hang the capitalists they will sell us the rope we use."

    "If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves."

    "The only real power comes out of a long rifle."




It is well-recognized that President Obama's political philosophy is heavily influenced by Marxism-Leninism, originating primarily through his childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis.  He has demonstrated through his policy implementation that he believes in a strong centralized government and increasing governmental control over the financial system, media, education, energy, healthcare, private property, where people live, their means of transportation, and how they behave.

His beliefs are reflected in his words:

Quote

    "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times."2

    "Generally, the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties."3

    "If you've got a business - you didn't build that.  Somebody else made that happen."2

    "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."4

    "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket."5

    "I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program."6

    "I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution..."7

    "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."8

    "...We're gonna punish our enemies and we're gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us."9


In a similar vein, Hillary Clinton was immersed in a Marxist environment at an early age.  Her senior thesis at Wellesley College was a positive analysis of the dirty political tactics of radical organizer Saul Alinsky, whom she referred to having a "compelling personality" and "exceptional charm."

To illustrate her political leanings, the following are a sampling of her quotations:

Quote

    "We are going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

    "It's time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few, for the few, and to replace it with shared responsibility for shared prosperity."

    "We can't just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people."

    "We have to build a political consensus and that requires people to give up a little bit of their own turf in order to create this common ground."

    "I certainly think the free market has failed."

     "I think it's time to send a clear message to what has become the most profitable sector in the entire economy, that they are being watched."

    "What I want to do is take those profits and apply them to alternative energy."

    "I really believe that it takes a village to raise a child.10"

    "I also believe that every new handgun sale or transfer should be registered in a national registry...11"

    Isn't it amazing how little the goals and objectives of Marxism-Leninism have changed over the past 97 years, and how clear they continue to be for those who open their eyes.

There is not one modicum of doubt that they all subscribe to the same political philosophy which was first espoused by Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

And very little doubt that the American people are ripe for being led down that blind alley.

I was about to disagree with you, Relic. But, then the thought came to me, Boehner ...

Republicans and Democrats. Two sides of the same establishment government coin.

It's difficult to accept the new American reality. We grew up in such a different place.

Ain't that the truth! Millennial's have no idea the freedoms we used to enjoy. Though it was a decade of turmoil, I miss the 60s.

History has examples of the same thing happening. We're just the latest tragedy.

I was thinking about a friend of mine who died late last year.  He was the same age as my husband would have been and they both had such similar childhoods... the type of childhood little boys in this day and age would not recognize.. summers of exploration and fun in the outdoors.. boys with their friends, their dogs and bows and arrows, and cutting down old trees to make rafts for exploration they dreamed about in their off time.......  playing with snakes, frogs, etc... my husband would talk about his summers in Colorado going off to find a fishing hole with a pole and his dog and when he heard the train heading back into town he knew it was time to go home to dinner...... my friend was an architect by trade, but could write stories like no one's business.. he wrote a lot of stories (which he posted on another site) of those days growing up down in Phoenix......... yep....... a whole lot has been lost that only those of us who lived in that era will ever know or understand.

Rap - collect your friend's stories.

They should not be lost. Even if it is a small print run, with all proceeds going to the family or to charity - it would be worth doing.

Another friend of mine who collaborated with him on a couple of his self-published books has been in contact with his family.

If he needs an editor, I can squeeze out a few hours. I live edit, though.

She is a teacher and can handle it quite well... it has to be handled with sensitivity with his family who lost their father, their mother and an uncle in the course of a year.. but people have been working on it.
