Wednesday letters: Communism is socialism

May 1, 2013 

Now that we know a pressure cooker and cell phones can be as deadly as — if not more deadly than — an assault rifle, will the Obama administration advocate legislation requiring all pressure cookers and cell phones be subject to background checks and registration?

The FBI was warned about these communists from Russia — once the Union of the Socialist Soviet Republics. That’s right, socialism and communism are one and the same. Socialism is the beginning. The term communism was added in 1848 by Friedrich Engels and Carl Marx. When government has gained full control and pushes a communist agenda, you do not fight communists, you change the definition to terrorists. Demonize capitalism, take over industries with over-regulation and taxation. Take the guns from the citizens and render the currency useless, and government will have full control.

And don’t tell me it could never happen in America. The fundamental change to communism is occurring before our very eyes. Welcome to the U.S.A. — Union of Socialist America.
