Situation normal, really?

Daily Item

---- — While cleaning out some work files I found an article of interest. The article was quoted from a Communist document captured by Allied forces called "Red Rules for Revolution."

As I quote these rules I hope you read them carefully and give them some serious thought.

n Corrupt the young, get them interested in sex (drugs & alcohol). Make them superficial; destroy their ruggedness.

n Get control of all means of publicity, there by getting people's minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books, plays, and other trivialities.

n Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance.

n Destroy people's faith in their natural leaders by holding them up to contempt and ridicule.

n Always preach true Democracy but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible.

n By encouraging government extravagance, destroy its credit and produce fear of inflation with rising prices and general discontent.

n Promote unnecessary strikes in vital industries, encourage civil disorders, and foster a lenient and soft attitude on the part of government towards such disorders.

n By specious argument, cause breakdown of moral virtues, honesty, sobriety, continence, and faith in the pledged word.

n Cause the registration of firearms on some pretext, with a view of confiscating them and leaving the population helpless.

Folks Communism is not dead; it is simply flying under the radar and you don't recognize it. They know they cannot defeat America militarily so they plan to do it from within like all great nations in the past. Will America suffer the same fate?

Take a close look at what is happening today. Our kids can't play tag, dodge ball, and softball, use gym equipment for fear of being hurt. The crime rate is rising and corruption is rampant. We are $17 trillion in debt and climbing. Our founding principles and our Constitution are being attacked. Late-term abortions and children having children. Our education system is in trouble. Our work ethic has been destroyed with more and more handouts.

Scandals including the State Department sex scandal, IRS targets conservatives and Tea Party, ambassador and three others killed, Fast and Furious.

Efforts are mounting to register our guns. If that is not enough to open your eyes, look up UN Agenda 21, UN Small Arms Treaty, and Common Core. Piece by piece, little by little America is being taken apart from within.

Put a frog in boiling water and he will jump out immediately. Put a frog in cold water, gradually turn up the heat, and he will unknowingly die a slow death. Is that America today?
