The Communist Manifesto

The Communist Manifesto, originally titled Manifesto of the Communist Party is a short 1848 book written by the German political theorists Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.  It has since gone down in history as one of the world's most influential political manuscripts. 

 

Communist Manifesto Precepts
1

Abolition of private property

2

Heavy progressive income tax

3

Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

4

Confiscation of property of all emigrants and rebels.

When Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto, none of these precepts were in place in the United States of America.  Indeed, these precepts were in direct conflict with our founding father's beliefs and our beloved Constitution! Review the list and see what how we have allowed "progressive" thinking to transform our country.  See the full text of the Communist Manifesto (PDF).

Our analysis

2. Heavy progressive income tax

Abraham Lincoln established income tax in 1861.  Income tax was found to be unconstitutional because it was a direct tax not apportioned according to the population of each state.  Lincoln's income tax was repealed in 1871.  In 1913, the 16th amendment was ratified establishing the "heavy progressive income tax" that we have today.  Woodrow Wilson was our president when this amendment was ratified.  Although the Supreme Court has ruled that "nothing has changed" in the way people are taxed (i.e., direct taxes are unconstitutional), voluntary participation in paying income taxes is okay.  As recently as 2010, Senator Harry Reid of Nevada reiterated that paying income taxes is voluntary
