    I really do believe that the left is trying to forment a communist revolution in this country but they are doing it in an almost invisible way because they have been able to obfuscate what has been happening in this country for over the past hundred years. Everytime we accuse them of this terrible crime they either alter the definition of the word socialism to something that sounds appealing to the public. This has been happening every generation until the point where we no longer realize what it is so we can't identify what it is. Its like trying to point out something to other people when that thing doesn't even have a name or definition.

    A good example is the progressive income tax, inheritance tax, and capital gains tax. We are told by the left that this tax isn't communist but its origins come right out of the communist manifesto and every communist country has had at least one of these in place. Yet, we are not suppose to notice this and pretend that it isn't communism? I think we are living under a big lie that has been creeping into our thinking for a long time until now where we actually do have a communist in power and don't even realize it.

    does anyone still pay inheritance tax? Last I heard it was under 1% that paid any inheritance tax or somesuch low number.

    You might also want to check out my other post about Wyoming Republicans wanting to tax the wind.

    Are you trying to say that they are communist because they want to tax the wind? When did Karl Marx say that taxing the wind was needed to create a socialist society? He did say that a progressive income tax is needed to create a socialist society and who are the people that complain the rich ain't taxed enough? Who hates everything about lowering or removing the income tax completely? It could be a coincidence between those that advocate for this kind of tax and the fact that the only political movement in the world that also advocated for this kind of tax were communist but who else other than Karl Marx came up with this tax?

    You can come up with all your reasons why your progressive income tax has different origins and reasons than the communist manifesto but I can't think of any so please stop denying yourselves to everyone and just embrace who you are.

    I know only 1% of the population pays it but where did that idea come from but are you saying that because only 1% pays it that it doesn't exist? Its clearly a law that legally applies to everyone who happens to qaulifies for it and not just to 1% of everyone.

    They didn't tell you because it should have be obvious to everyone.

    you just said they were doing it in a invisible way, so really you are saying they are not doing it in an obvious way.

    I have a company that sells/constructs 2012 rated disaster shelters. If they do not protect you from the end of the world you get your money back.

    The concept of insurance with group risks is socialistic as well. Ban all insurance and make each pay for their own illenss/accidents/loss.

    I do believe that our country is turning towards socialism a little bit at a time - slowly. The biggest notable turn in that direction has come with the Obama Administration. I think this is why people are making so much noise. They have just figured it all out. If we don't toss out an anchor and stop the move towards socialism within in the next generation, America will be a full socialist country.

    Its only invisible because we have been trained not to see it but no matter what it should be obvious by now.
