    examine The 10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto, it appears eight of them are in full flower in the US, meaning we could be 80 percent of the way there already.

    Here’s the score so far:

    1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose. In June of 2011, while the nation was collectively focusing on Anthony Weiner’s privates, the president quietly signed Executive Order 13575 establishing the White House Rural Council to insert federal involvement in basically every aspect of life in rural areas. Per the order, the WHRC will “coordinate and increase the effectiveness of Federal engagement with rural stakeholders, including agricultural organizations, small businesses, education and training institutions, healthcare providers, telecommunications services providers, research and land grant institutions, law enforcement, State, local, and tribal governments, and nongovernmental organizations regarding the needs of rural America.” And don’t forget the government’s power of “eminent domain.”

    2. A heavy progressive or gradated income tax. In 1913 when individual income tax was created, the top rate was just seven percent. Today the top marginal tax rate is 39.6 percent and according to the Democrats, it’s still not enough.

    3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance. Currently the “death tax” rate is 40 percent for estates above approximately $5 million – but don’t forget, at the beginning of 2013 it was set to go up to 55 percent for estates above $1 million. That crisis was averted last New Year’s Eve to avoid toppling over the fiscal cliff, but don’t believe for a second it won’t be revisited at some point.

    4. Confiscation of the property of emigrants and rebels. Here’s the thing: who decides what constitutes a rebel? And it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to connect the dots to IRS targeting of conservatives and Tea Party members.

    5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly. In 1913, when personal income tax was created, we also got another gift: The Federal Reserve Bank, a national bank which controls monetary policy – regardless of national fiscal policy.

    6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the state. The Federal Communications Commission was established in 1934 and the Department of Transportation in 1967.

    7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan. See number one above and add to it the Community Reinvestment Act, auto and bank bailouts, Departments of Agriculture, Commerce and Labor and Interior, Bureaus of Land Management, Reclamation, Mines, the National Park Service – oh, and Obamacare.

    8. Free education for all children in government schools. The Department of Education and the teachers’ union control the education process. – and now they’re pushing for Common Core. According to Politicker, De Blasio said the group talked about universal pre-K and said a lot of the mayors talked about early childhood education as “one of the breakthrough things we have to do to change the dynamics.’ And of course Obama agrees: “There was real passion in the president’s voice when he talked about how fundamental it is to move forward an early education agenda in this country and I think we all now know clearly that he will be a partner in all we need to do.” Early indoctrination is key.
