Ronald Reagan Quote

“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.

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! Where are the public forums of debate? When will Congress redress our grievances? When will the States exercise their sovereignty? When will Americans throw off the Marxist shackles of central fiat banking, income taxes, property taxes, mandatory 'education,' mandatory 'service,' mandatory 'health care,' private trade monopolies in medicine, law, energy?
