Communism, Fascism and Socialism Defined

social obamaI read numerous blogs and blog posts every day, and I find the terms communism, fascism and socialism are thrown around  repeatedly often misused and sometimes not used effectively for the truly terrifying effects such isms have had on the people in our world’s history.  So instead of continuing to throw around these words, let’s define them (as provided by dictionary.com) right now and then determine their appropriate use in today’s modern America.  After doing so, we should be able to come to better conclusions about  what is happening in our country and more importantly a better understanding of the importance of protecting our Constitutional Republic and the difference in it from the isms we have defined.

com⋅mu⋅nism

–noun
1. a theory or system of social organization based on the holding of all property in common, actual ownership being ascribed to the community as a whole or to the state.

fas⋅cism

–noun

1. (sometimes initial capital letter) a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.

so⋅cial⋅ism

–noun
1. a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.
The one thing that we should first notice about all of these definitions is that America and American Capitalism have yet to be so circumvented or bastardized to reach full commonality with any of these definitions.  The other thing that is critical to note is that all of these definitions reside in a loss of personal property with the possible exception of fascism (please note that personal property also includes money not just property like homes, cars and other things).
The one thing that the founders of our nation made clear was that freedom and freedom from tyranny were rooted in personal property rights.  In fact, even when scholars have attempted to look at what Jefferson meant by the pursuit of happiness in the Declaration of Independence it is widely believed that property rights were a core consideration of what was meant.  As John Adams wrote:
All men are born free and independent, and have certain natural, essential, and unalienable rights, among which may be reckoned the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties; that of acquiring possessing, and protecting property; in fine, that of seeking and obtaining their safety and happiness.    (The Political Writings of John Adams)
Americans should be ever vigilant and quite concerned any time their property rights are being subverted.  And since property rights include money, Americans must also be extremely concerned when their money is being taken by their government regardless of government’s intended purpose. 
Often times the isms defined herein are referred to as left or right where communism is the extreme left, fascism is the extreme right and socialism, I guess, is somewhere in between.  What should be noted is that the founders of our country did not deal with isms but rather with governmental powers.  They viewed excessive government (the founders today would see all of the isms this way) on the extreme left, anarchy on the extreme right and our Constitutional Republic was an attempt to find the balance in between.
As America drifts toward any one of the isms above that drift is a complete afront to our founders.  We must be diligent in reigning it back in and returning our government to its founding principles which are limited government in all aspects of our lives and the freedom of the individual to live his life, protect his liberties and protect his property.  Make careful arguments for why limited government and a return to our founding principles is the best course for our country.  Avoid throwing around isms as they may not necessarily apply even when there is a creep toward them.

Financial Rape

obama-on-moneyThe “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,” that has now been amended in the United States Senate is expected to be written up and passed sometime over the weekend or early next week so that it can be on President Obama’s desk before President’s Day.  There is no way to sugar coat it, this is financial rape of the American people. 

For those of you whom voted for President Barack Obama, I certainly hope you are happy and elated in the miserable existence that will befall you within a Socialistic regime.  Let’s make no “bones about it,” for those of you whom didn’t do your research in properly vetting President Barack Obama, he is a Marxist/Communist.  It would have been a lot easier if you folks would have moved to Venezuela instead of bringing communism to our shores.  Now you will have to find from the sane among you, people who are still willing to save this country.

Now don’t get me wrong, we aren’t a communist country just yet.  We have become the equivalent of a socialistic European Nation.  It’s only a matter of time, however, before we creep closer and closer to communism.  If you don’t believe our dear President is a communist, then I suggest you do some reading on his Grandparents, his Mother, his dear childhood mentor Frank Marshall Davis, and his domestic terrorist buddy William Ayers.  All of them communists whom our President shares a political ideology with.

Let me spell this out for those of you who skipped history and/or civics class in grade school and high school.  The bill that was passed by the House of Representatives and has been amended, re-written and about to pass in the U.S. Senate is Un-Constitutional.  That’s correct, it does not have a Constitutional “leg to stand on”  as no where in the U.S Constitution does it allow Congress to pass laws not covered under the U.S. Constution that force states to go against there own Constitutions (see further discussion here).  But that hasn’t stopped our Congress in the past century, so why would they care about the Constitutionality of anything anymore.

I warned Congress in an earlier post that at some point they would push the American people past our breaking point.  That day may happen this weekend or next week with the financial rape they are  about to perpetrate on this Nation.
