AMERICA’S CREEPING REVOLUTION

John T. Flynn in his 1949 The Road Ahead, America’s Creeping Revolution said,
“We in America are on our way, rapidly, to the socialist stop. Where we will go from there I do not know. But nothing could be clearer than this – that we are following in the footsteps of socialist Britain. What Americans do not understand is the manner in which this is being done. Many, I am sure, will be as amazed as I was when I became aware of the precise shape which this extraordinary movement is taking.”
Sixty years ago, he was warning how the American youth was being programmed in our schools and colleges to accept socialism but strangest of all, he writes, is the extent to which our socialist conspirators were paralyzing the churches. The Christian churches once the great bulwark against the march of communism and socialism succumbed to the 501c3 tax exemption status, which pretty much muzzles that voice. Chuck Baldwin said in his recent article Time For Christians to Shred Their Bibles. Marxism is class warfare. Its goal is to divide people. First it was the very rich –vs- the poor but now it’s dividing long-time friends – those who voted for President Obama and those who oppose him.
Flynn said the road we were traveling had been obvious for some time but may I suggest, only a small percentage of Americans were aware. The voices like the kitchen intelligentsia called out the warnings the best way they knew how. However, the mainstream media has been complicit and has covered for this Marxist agenda since the turn of the century so retired folks put bumper stickers on their motor homes that said they were spending their children’s inheritance – if only they knew. Figuring they’d paid their way in society, many headed for sunny places where they could play cards, shop, swim, play tennis, golf, bowl or become a ski enthusiast like my cousin Wayne who spent a night lost on Mt. Spokane. In the meantime, the young folks following the lead of their elders, many born during depression but not recognizing the storm clouds that had been gathering overhead built bigger homes, bought fancier cars and ran up their credit cards. And just as socialism gradually spread over England, it came to America.
In 1913, the “Planned Economy” leftward theorists gave us the 16th amendment that allowed the government to begin collecting taxes on primarily middle-class incomes while the first tax-exempt foundation (where the rich hide their money) received a federal charter. On December 23, 1913 a small group of powerful senators stayed behind to vote on the Federal Reserve Act while the rest of the unsuspectingly Senate went home for the Christmas holiday. The Federal Reserve was created giving a group of international bankers control over our money and printing more as needed without any required gold backing FOX’s T.V. Glenn Beck’s “favorite” president was Democrat Woodward Wilson . Democrat president FDR gave us the Social Security entitlement that elected officials later robbed and which ended up as a Ponzi scheme that makes Bernie Madoff look like a Sunday school teacher. Another Democrat president by the name of LBJ from Texas created two more entitlements called Medicare and Medicaid that are now also bankrupt.
