We've been edging towards communism for a while.

Central banking, which has shown itself to be a miserable failure, is one of the pillars of communism. Yet so called "capitalists" and "conservatives" do not denounce it.

Actualy communism has been tried and FAILED in this country many times before 1900. Anybody seen any new Shakers? Dunkers? and a lot of the other sects that are now no more than footnotes in history? I guess the Pilgrims were the first communists.
Guess again

10 Pillars of Communism said:
1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
5. Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.
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.
8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.
10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc.
The ones in bold are the ones we have done, in one form or the other.
