Like the Nazis of Hitler’s Germany, the Republican campaign is spreading phobia against Marxism to cover up the Republican and Reaganite coddling of Wall Street capitalism, profiteering and deregulation and for the Bush-Paulsen-McCain bailout of Wall Street. Time to stop politicians plumbing out bail-out money and profits for Wall Street capitalism! Time for real, socialist, Marxist change!
The Republican campaign for McCain and Palin is taking on a Nazi and MacCarthyite fascist tack of phobia for Marxist and socialist change. First, Palin have been ranting that Barak Obama has been “palling around” with the Marxist Bill Ayers even when Obama was only eight years old when Ayers was supposed to have engaged in “terrorism”. In the Republican strategy to hold on to power, McCain is morphing into U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy of the 1950, who tried to build a political career in Washington mongering fear against Marxism.

Second, the Republican campaigners and spokespersons have been raving recently now that Obama is a Marxist out “to spread the wealth” based on Karl Marx’s anticapitalist and pro-labor advocacy in a super-abundant society of “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” This, after McCain and Palin started posing as the champion of the working people against Wall Street by blaming “Wall Street greed and corruption” for the global financial crisis and meltdown.

Third, the Republicans have been posing as the capitalist champion of the working middle-class, of “Joe the Plumber” supposedly by lessening taxes.

This is how Hitler and the Nazi party rose to power. They ranted against oligarchs and posed as “pro-labor” even “socialist” but even more against the Marxists, Socialists and Communists. Yet, behind the scenes, they got the financial support of the German version of Wall Street capitalism. . In particular, Fritz Thyssen, who owned the Bank Voor Handel en Scheepvaart N.V Also, J. Henry Schroder & Co., of London which had become partners not just with the Rockefellers but also with the Rothschild-dominated Bank of England. And then there was the Big Three German banks which plowed funds into the Nazi coffers and the I.G. Farben which formed part of the Nazi military-industrial and war business complex: Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank and Dresdner Bank. Hitler became the muscleman for German capitalism.

It is true that both the Republican and Democrat Party and its leading politicians have served as political agents of Wall Street capitalism, the Republican politicians have become the backers of its worst abuses. In particular, the deregulation and globalization policies championed by Ronald Reagan, which led to disasters like Enron and Halliburton under Bush. Alan Greenspan the guru of deregulation and of the financial bubbles was a Republican, taken under the wings of Reagan.

All this anti-Marxist ranting serves to cover up the Republican all-out support for Wall Street capitalism under Reagan, the two Bushes and Greenspan. All this propaganda for tax cuts is meant to promote tax evasion for Wall Street. The U.S. biggest capitalist corporations have become the lowest taxpayers among the largest global corporations. All, courtesy of the tax cutting of President Bush and his Reagan ideology of privatization and tax-cuts for capitalism

Also the tax-cutting rant of the Republicans is meant to cover up the reality of bankruptcy of the Bush Republican government and resort to borrowing by the U.S. treasury of dollars from China, Japan and Saudi Arabia mediated by Wall Street. Under the Republican and Reaganite Bush, the U.S. has become the biggest debtor and borrower in the world’s history, 11 trillion dollars.

And all these baloney about tax-cutting for Joe the Plumber covers up the crime of the 700-billion-dollar bailout of Wall Street? And who rushed to Washington to try to cobble a bailout plan for Wall Street and tried to talk partymates into supporting the bailout? Wasn’t it the Republican McCain? Wasn’t it Bush and his Republican sidekick, honcho of Goldman Sachs and Wall Street, Henry Paulsen, the masterminds of the Wall Street bailout? Weren’t Bush, Paulsen and McCain the three Washington plumbers who tried to flush more money to the criminals of Wall Streets with the 700-billion dollar bailout of Wall Street?

And who suffers most from these Reaganite policies? From dwindling funds for health care, industrial jobs, education. The working guy and gal. Joe the worker. Jane the worker.

And guess what? Where did Marx get the principle “to each according to his ability, to each according to his need” he wrote down in the “Critique to the Gotha Program”?

Believe it or not? From the Bible. Get this from the Wikipedia.
“Luke describes the organization of the first Christian congregations following the death of Jesus:
And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. (Acts 2:44-45)
Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, and laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. (Acts 4:34-35)”

So Hitlerite and McCarthyite fear-mongers and Inquisitors among the Republicans, get this! The Bible says Christ and his followers were communists, socialists, anti-capitalists and Marxists. So think about that before ranting against Marxists.

Instead, rant against the real champions of Mammon, the real plumbers of Wall Street capitalist money: McCain, Palin, Bush, and the other champions of the Wall Street bailout and the Reaganite doctrine of Wall Street capitalism. Stop the Nazi-type and McCarthyite fascist mongering against Marxism and in defense of Wall Street capitalism! . Time to stop politicians plumbing out bail-out money and profits for Wall Street! Time for real, socialist, Marxist change!
