I hear you saying, "You must be kidding". Communism is dead. It hasn't been around since The Berlin Wall came down in 1989 and the The Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 and on August 24, Mikhail Gorbachev officially dissolved the Communist Party. - WRONG!
In 1992 A communist strategy meeting (for the US) was held at the University of California Berkeley, for the sole purpose of updating their objectives originally proposed in 1963.
America was clearly warned over 50 years ago on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives about the Marxist agenda that has been systematically infused into the fabric, foundation, and functions of the nation by the adherents of communism in America and later under the guise of Progressive Democrats. That warning came from a courageous Florida Congressman, (Sydney Herlong Jr., who spent 20 years in Congress as a conservative Democrat) who read into the congressional record the 45 goals of the communists operating covertly toward the socialization our nation, published in the Deland, Florida newspaper and elsewhere.
Primary targets were determined. Family, Free Enterprise, Morality (by/ censorship) and Environmental. At the same meeting the adopted the goals of the "Naked Communist" by Cleon Skousen (1970) were set up as their preamble. There are 45 items in total in different stages of accomplishment. You will be shocked.
You are about to read a partial list of those 45 goals. As you read this, 54 years later, you should be upset if not angered by the events that have played themselves out, most of which during the administration of Barack Obama. If this doesn't unnerve you, nothing will. And now with the communists star player replaced by a conservative, their efforts have tripled as you will see.
Remember, Communism did not come to Russia as the result of a popular uprising. It was imposed on her from a small minority hiding behind democratic slogans.
The Complete list with documentation is linked at the bottom. Here a dozen you'll surely recognize.
