By their hateful actions, they will bring on the very thing they dread the most ...
Wouldn’t you rather communism than fascism, really?
I mean, they keep calling President Obama a communist so much that people are starting to take a serious look at it, and the more we have to look at communism and learn from it, the more interesting it’s becoming. There are so many who want to be like Obama, who admire him, and if being a Communist is what it takes, so be it.
Now, I already know someone reading this is scared shytless just reading this little “manifesto” of mine, but think about it a minute; that is — if the Republican Tea Party doesn’t have you too scared to think for yourself.
1. com·mu·nism [kom-yuh-niz-uhm] 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. 2. ( often initial capital letter ) a system of social organization in which all economic and social activity is controlled by atotalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating political party.
2. fas·cism [fash-iz-uhm] 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.
Now, considering that a “true” democracy can’t happen in America (and the Japanese are even doing a ‘facade of a democracy’ better than America does it) because there is too much racism and hatred and bigotry in this nation to make that even a remote possibility…
… and that the Federalist government is already a done deal because the federal government works (until the black man got elected President, that is) “in partnership” with the states and other government entities (without allowing people to just run rampant over the rights of others, even though individual rights get trampled on every day)…
… and that the Republic, which is nothing more than individual sovereignty versus group sovereignty, where power is vested in all of the people and not just the desires of the individual, an argument that won’t end until the Lord comes back here and wipes all of our arses out …
There are only two things left for America to become, more like communists, or more like fascists.
And from what I read in the Bible, which a boatload and a half of Americans don’t believe in, if the Lord and Christ was anything “political” at all, He was a Communist in this earth when He lived and ministered here. He was not a federalist, He was not a ‘publican, He was not even what you might call a “Democratic” Savior … especially not when He beat the cruddy-up out of those moneychangers messing around in His Father’s House, which they had turned into a den of thieves, to hear Him tell it.
A lot of people would like to think of the Savior as “fascist,” but that’s where they forget where the hand of God has ruled that the Lord Himself won’t even “dictate” to us, or require, that we love Him. If someone held a gun to your head and said “Say you love me,” it wouldn’t matter whether you were telling the truth or meant it or not, correct?
God, by the same spirit, is not going to MAKE us do jack. Not because He can’t, but because He won’t. He has chosen not to force us to do anything, not even love Him — but who are we to question Him, either? Job got in trouble for that so many moons ago. And Job’s friends were busy trying to convince him that the reason he was in trouble was because he disobeyed the Lord, when Job had done no such thing. They were egging him on to “curse God and die,” and Job refused. He made the choice.
God laid it out and gave us a choice. The Bible is just a book of thrice and quadruple-told tales out of Africa that have been passed on over the transom, but there is spiritual truth at the heart and root of it all.
Choose ye this day whom ye will serve, but as for me and my house…
The “apple” (if it was an apple) tree was shoved into the midst of the Garden of Eden for a reason … it was about choice and obedience; and it isn’t the communist party which forces, or dictates, it shares and works together in a communal bonding spirit, which sounds a lot more like the Lord than what the Teapublicans have to shove down America’s throats.
“What if I don’t want to obey? Should God punish me because I choose NOT to love Him or follow His ways?”
Bottom line is, choices have consequences. Long-term consequences that help or harm. God doesn’t have to punish; we punish ourselves.
With that said, and considering that the Lord already said His arrival heralds a new day in which “these temples will be turned to nothing but heaps of rubble and sticks” … the more I have to go look up communist thinking and ideals because some Obama-jealous Republican keeps calling him one (which he isn’t), the more appeal it is starting to have.
Communists are much more like the Lord than fascists, and the Tea Party is fascist right hand of the GOP, maybe even a whole arm. The Savior walked around homeless all day every day in some beat up clothes and dusty sandals, in communities of people who hungered and thirsted and were sick and dying, and He fed and healed these people FOR FREE, while telling them everything was going to work out for their good soon enough. He even told rich folks to give up their riches and do what the poor folk were doing. "Drop it all and come follow me," He told the ones with money and "stuff." Then He went into the spiel about the camel being pushed through the eye of a needle.
But there are those who would call the Lord a fascist based upon that “iron fist” rule coming from the Catholics and all of these other religions who think they are in position to tell everyone what “thus saith the Lord.” It's a funny thing to hear coming from those who will tell everyone else how to live, and not do the same themselves. They want to take away rights, but wouldn’t want anyone messing with theirs.
They live in what I call “The Shoebox Empire,” (which I mentioned in my 2008 book The United States of Georgia) where more than 320 million people are supposed to fit into a box and stay put on fascist command; but the only thing that seems to frustrate them more than anything is that the box is not only too danged small, but the folks they keep trying to shovel in there not only don’t fit, but won’t stay in it.
They work hard to assert their right to shoot and maim anyone who doesn’t fit in The Box and won’t stay put, but … is it …
Maybe America, given the circumstances preceding Obama’s election for the 50 years prior, could stand a little community-led spirit right now. They’ve been leading up to it since just before Reagan was elected in the 80s…
