Power to the people. That has been the socialists mantra for a very long time. The fist in the air symbol was first used in 1917 by the Industrialist Workers of the World but has been used by communists every since. You may have heard “Workers of the World unite”, well that actually comes from Karl Marx himself. His quote was, in German “Proletarier aller Lander vereinigt Euch!” Or in English, Proletarians of all countries, unite”. Or more appropriately workers of the world, unite. Communists, today, still pit the working class against the rich. In every election cycle, you will hear some variation of that sentiment like ‘The rich should pay their fair share’, or ‘Republicans want dirty air, dirty water and to kill babies’.
So instead of ‘Power to the people”, I prefer to say ‘Power to the Person’. The Constitution of the United States of America was written to protect the citizen from the usurping of the government. Or, another way of saying it is that the Constitution was written to protect the individual or the person. It is the person that is supposed to have the power, not the government. The Constitution is actually a set of rules that govern how government interacts with the individual as well as limits its responsibility and power.
There are those, already in government, that has and is usurping the power of government against the citizen. An example would be the governments take over of Healthcare. More recently, the state of California has passed legislation that prevents the parent from opting out of LGBT education in public schools. That takes the power away from the parent and gives the power to the state. In the Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx wrote 10 planks for taking over the control of a society. First was to abolish private property. Making all pay rent to the government because the government owns everything. Another plank was an punitive tax. That was to slow and eventually eliminate capitalism. Yet another plank is Free education in government controlled schools so that the government can control what gets taught. That makes schools indoctrination centers. Does that sound familiar?
The whole idea of communism is to strip power from the individual and give it to the state, by which I mean government. The power of America by which I mean that which had made America special was freedom of the individual. So again, I say ‘Power to the Person’. If you want a better understanding of why there is so much chaos in America now, you need to read the communist manifesto and understand why it is evil. Try http://www.laissez-fairerepublic.com/tenplanks.html . In the 5000 plus years of recorded human history, communism/socialism has NEVER succeeded. A society can not tax its way into prosperity. Big government is evil as it must increase taxes to maintain and grow. As government grows, the engine of freedom must shrink. “Power to the Person”
