Letter: America’s conversion from republic to socialist democracy

A recent comment in the Albany Herald newspaper (Albany, Georgia) Squawkbox stated that America was a republic and not a democracy.

The squawker was emphatic that we should call it a republic. I regret that this is incorrect. America is a socialist democracy and rapidly moving towards totalitarian socialism.

America was founded as a constitutional federal republic composed of a limited federal government and sovereign states. The American republic died on April 9, 1865, at Appomattox, Virginia.

It is said that a lady asked Benjamin Franklin, “What kind of government have you given us?” to which he is said to have replied, “a Republic, if you can keep it.”

What led to the loss of the American republic? The socialist revolution in Europe led by Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels failed in 1848.

They saw America as an opportunity to keep their socialist dream alive. In 1849 and 1850 they sent approximately 2000 primarily German socialists to America to New York City.

They joined with American socialists to form the Republican Party in 1854 which until 1877 was similar to the modern socialist Democratic Party. Prior to 1861, American socialist Horace Greeley allowed 487 of Karl Marx’s articles to be published in the New York Tribune newspaper including “The Communist Manifesto.”

By 1861 the socialist Republican Party had figured out how to start a war and blame the South because Southern statesmen adhered to and sought to preserve and maintain the constitutional federal republic established by America’s founding fathers, who were primarily Southern gentlemen from Virginia.

Also, the Northern industrialists wanted the South’s resources, land, timber, coal and cotton for pennies on the dollar, which they got during reconstruction from 1865 to 1877 which was the plunder, pillage and rape of the Southern states.

They set up the Fort Sumter incident to provoke the South into firing the first shot so that war could be blamed on the South. The correspondence between socialist Abraham Lincoln and Naval Cmdr. Gustavus Fox has survived and says “the result, which we anticipated, has been accomplished”.

The North invaded the South and conducted a barbarian total war consisting of murder, torture, rape, arson, theft, plunder and pillaging. The South fought valiantly and heroically against the vastly greater overwhelming resources and numbers of the North to preserve the Constitution and Bill of Rights and the republic, but after a four-year struggle was forced to yield.

The socialists had prevailed and the conversion of the American government from republic to socialist democracy was set in motion and achieved in a few years. The 14th Amendment was fraudulently ratified and it eviscerated the ninth and 10th states rights amendments in the Bill of Rights and converted the constitutional federal republic to a centralized national government — a socialist democracy.

In 1892 when Socialist Francis Bellamy wrote the “pledge of allegiance to the U.S. flag” he included “to the republic for which it stands” but this was socialist deception. Over the past 150 years socialism and corruption have continued to expand and now the remaining remnants of the Constitution and Bill of Rights are being shredded.

Both democrats and republicans and Americans that elected them are at fault. Both Bush Sr. and Jr., both Clintons and Obama are New World Order One World Government advocates.

In many ways the two parties are just two wings of the same bird of prey, although the Republicans don’t try to take our guns like the Democrats — at least not yet. But progressive and critical thinker are alternate deceptive names for socialist and communist.

Donald Trump is an anomaly, and I consider him the only hope for America.
