This is a purely speculative piece, based on observation of recent trends in the United States.
The US is being drawn into a Communistic form of society, being perpetuated by the least suspected group: The Republican Party of the United
Point 1: The Republican Party (hereafter GOP) favors an economic system that concentrates power and wealth at the top fringe of the society,
with that elite letting "the appropriate" amount of prosperity trickle down to the remaining huge proportion of the population.
This is what has been seen in pretty much every Communist country in history... the current Communist countries exemplify this - North Korea, China -
the top 1 or 2% of the elite of these countries controls the vast majority of the wealth there.
Point 2: The GOP favors a domestic police force whose job is to suppress all forms of dissent that show possibility of truly unseating the
elite, while encouraging or ignoring those that appear to be protest but actually further entrench the ruling elite. Consider the different police
responses to the Tea Baggers and the Occupy movement.
This is also what we see in places like NK and China... the police are little more than an enforcement arm for the elite. A member of the elite and a
"commoner" who perform the exact same behaviors are treated significantly differently by the security forces.
Point 3: The GOP favors a foreign policy where the US military is enforcing US economic and corporate policy around the world, to the benefit
of the ruling elite and under the excuse of "protecting" the citizenry.
The best example of this is the former Soviet Union. The SU had its military all over the place, for the benefit of the ruling SU elite, under the
guise of "protecting" the country. At least the SU elite had very recent examples of a real need for this, which we in the US do not. It is nothing
more or less than another mechanism to preserve the privileges of the ruling elite.
Point 4: The GOP favors a "news" system that is nothing other than a mouthpiece for the elite's propaganda. The tripe that spews from Fox
News is nothing approaching anything real, just propaganda. The Democrats also do this, but they are not as accomplished at it.
Again, examine the "news" services of places like NK and China and the former SU.
Point 5: The GOP has orchestrated a nation-wide, coordinated effort to disenfranchise large numbers of eligible voters in the US. This
philosophy of having "elections" but controlling the outcome is another trait of Communist societies. Most Communist countries don't even pretend
to have elections and those that do control the outcome very stringently. The GOP is heading in this direction.
In conclusion, I see frequent charges and panics that Obama is "leading us to Socialism". I submit that this is more propaganda, and that the real
threat is a Communistic take over of US society, engineered by the Republican Party.
