"In an ironic sense, Karl Marx was right. We are witnessing today a great revolutionary crisis -- a crisis where the demands of the economic order are colliding directly with those of the political order. But the crisis is happening not in the free, non-Marxist West, but in the home of Marxism-Leninism, the Soviet Union.... [Communism will be] left on the ash heap of history."
Ronald Reagan
(1911-2004) 40th US President

    Republican movements must counter democratic movements. The press and schools are instilling Marxist values within the general populace. Despite the Constitution declaring "Congress shall make no law ..." Congress has made PLENTY of laws that directly violate Constitutional protections -- and the People are powerless against it now!
