I've been telling you we're heading down the road to socialism. If you don't believe me, would you believe the communists?
They're warning America of Marxism in an article at Pravda.com — a Russian online news source. Pravda, by the way, was once the official voice of Soviet communism.
"American Capitalism Gone Without a Whimper" mocks what's happening in America today:
"Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple — excuse me, dear reader — I meant people."
How did we get to a place where Russia is lecturing us on capitalism? Pravda writes:
"First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system... Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in D.C. that directly affects their lives.... Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our 'democracy.' Pride, blind the foolish."
America, we must educate ourselves. Be involved. And remember: Pride, blind the foolish!

And here's what Pravda says is our next step in the downward spiral:
"Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches... were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top Protestant mega-preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the 'winning' side of one pseudo-Marxist politician or another."
And our final collapse, according to Pravda? The election of President Barack Obama:
"His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting.... If this keeps up for more than another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Weimar Republic and, at worst, Zimbabwe."
Pravda goes on to say that the past two weeks have been the most breathtaking of all:
"So it should be no surprise that the American president has followed this up with a 'bold' move of declaring that he and another group of un-elected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies."
How should the world react to all of this? The communists think: "The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the red as fast as possible."
And how does the American public react? With barely a whimper!
"The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker."
There will be those who dismiss this as, "well, of course they're saying that, they want to destroy America." But sometimes there's a bit of truth in an imperfect messenger. Let's just make sure the last sentence doesn't ring true.
