LET US ASSUME I AM VISITOR FROM ANOTHER PLANET...
I am told that you people spend somewhere approaching a quarter trillion dollars every year (that's 250 Billion dollars per year) on a military establishment to defend the American way of life. And lets say I walk into a cozy restaurant, I being from outer space, I start talking to an average citizen, and he tells me that he is an American and a Christian, and he apparently thinks the expenditure of this much money is normal under the circumstances.
So I asked him, "why does America spend all this money?"
And he scratched his head, and said "Now that the Soviet Union is dissolved, I honestly do not know." I said "well, why did you previously spend a quarter Trillion dollars a year on your military?"
And he said "Oh! We wanted to defend ourselves from communism!"
And I then asked "what is communism?"
And he said "Communism is an atheistic ideology that threatens freedom by military force to impose itself over our religious faith and against our free will, thus enslaving us."
I was impressed with that definition, so I decided to see just how enlightened this person was. I told him that I know a little something else about communism, and I asked him if he knew what communism looks like when implemented? He said "well, not exactly".
I asked him if he had been educated in the public school system? and he said "yes." So I assumed he had been educated on just what Americans are all fighting against; the evil ideals of the infamous Communist Manifesto. The Communist Manifesto was created by a fellow named Moses Mordecai Levi. Most Americans know him as Karl Marx.
He looked as if he didn't know that. That puzzled me, but I continued.
I said, "The first plank of the Communist Manifesto states: "Abolition of all property and land ownership and the application of all rents for public purposes."
I asked this Gentleman, "Do you own your own home?"
He said "Yes."
I said, "What happens if you stop paying your property tax?
He said "I can't, or the sheriff will sell it."
I said, "I am confused. How can the sheriff sell what you own?"
He was silent. So I said "isn't it a fact that you hold title to that property. But in reality, the state where you live owns the land and that is why they can sell it from you if you don't pay their rent?" And as he stared down at his weathered hands, I said "if you pay property tax, you practice the first plank of the Communist Manifesto. I had the opportunity to read this relatively thick book called the Bible, the Bible you Christians seem to live by; and what Americans use to swear their oaths on; and from what I have read, you Americans are in clear violation of Leviticus 25:23 if you pay property tax."
He looked even more puzzled; I thought he had known this.
The second plank of the communist Manifesto is: "Heavy progressive income tax."
You people don't fill out state form 1040's here, do you? And you don't fill out form 1040's for the federal government, do you? Because if you do, you practice the second plank of the Communist Manifesto and you are in violation of your Bible at Malachi 3:8 and Deuteronomy 4:13.
He quickly loosened his tie.
I said the third plank of the Communist Manifesto is: "Abolition of all rights of inheritance." I said "How long have you lived in America?"
He said "All my life."
I said "You don't have any probate courts here, do you? You don't have a legal profession that is teaching you to fill out wills instead of creating trusts, do you? Because if you, or anyone you know, has been through probate court, you have practiced the third plank of the Communist Manifesto and you are in violation of Deuteronomy 21:15-17 and Numbers 18:20-24."
He quickly reached for a napkin to wipe his forehead.
The fourth plank of the Communist Manifesto is: "Confiscation of property of all immigrants and rebels." You don't turn on the TV around April 1st and watch your government drag tax protestors off to jail, do you?
"Yes" was his reply.
Then I asked him if his local newspaper ever prints tax foreclosure and delinquency notices? He said "all the time." Well, I said, "if you participate in that or allow that to happen, or if that has happened to you, that's the fourth plank of the Communist Manifesto, and it is a violation of Leviticus 26:17 and Proverbs 28:1."
His eyes started to glaze over.
I looked at him and said the fifth plank of the Communist Manifesto is: "Centralization of credit by the creation of a national bank." I said, "You pay your debts to society in silver, don't you? You don't discharge your obligations with credit, do you?"
He started to squirm.
I said "if you rely on this green paper money for your survival, if your mind thinks in terms of this green paper when you go to purchase things, you practice the fifth plank of the Communist Manifesto, and you are in violation of Leviticus 19:35-36, Deuteronomy 25:13-16 and the aforementioned nasty and nefarious Exodus 20:15, which reads THOU SHALT NOT STEAL."
He started to become painfully uneasy.
I said, the sixth plank of the Communist Manifesto is: "Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state."
"You don't have ports of entry out here on the Interstate, do you? Your trucks don't have to drive in and out of these scales, do you? You don't drive automobiles with the admiralty flag of the state on the back with the yearly rental fee stuck in the middle on a sticker, do you? Your government doesn't control the media, do they? Because if they do, they and you practice the sixth plank of the Communist Manifesto and you are in violation of Deuteronomy 7:2 and Exodus 23:32-33."
He started to twitch uncomfortably.
I said the seventh plank of the Communist Manifesto is: "Government control of factories and the instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing in to cultivation of wastelands and the use of the soil in accordance with a common plan." I said, "You don't have a Bureau of Land management, do you? You don't live under the administrative circumstance of the Department of Agriculture, do you? And you don't have companion circumstances in the state law along with EPA and a host of other things, because if you allow yourself to live under that system, you practice the seventh plank of the Communist Manifesto and you are in violation of Leviticus 25: 1-7, actually Leviticus 25: 1-10.
He closed his eyes tightly as he forced himself to breathe.
I said the eighth plank of the Communist Manifesto reads: "Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture."
I said, "Do you have a Social Security number?" I assumed yes, as he shook his head up and down slowly. I said, "Well doesn't that mean that you're a Fourteenth Amendment juristic person, a merchant in interstate commerce under contract over time for profit and gain in a regulated enterprise and you have waived all your constitutional rights under contract in exchange for privileges, franchises and immunities?"
He said "Privileges?"
I said "yes, privileges! PRIVATE LAW: Privilege."
His hands instinctively clenched. I said "If you have a Social Security number, you practice the eighth plank of the Communist Manifesto, and you are in violation of your Bible at Leviticus 19:13 and Deuteronomy 24:14,15."
He became physically agitated.
Number nine, I said: "A combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries. Gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equitable distribution of population over the country."
"You don't have a Federal Emergency Management Association, Do you? You don't have FEMA at the state level, do you? Because is you do, you practice the ninth plank of the Communist Manifesto and you're in violation of Leviticus 25: 1-7.
By this time he was just plain angry.
I finished by quoting the tenth plank of the Communist Manifesto: "Free education for all children in public schools. Conform education with industrial productions."
I said "Are you a homeowner?"
He said "yes."
I said "you pay the property tax?"
He said "Yes."
I said "Do you know where 75% of the property tax goes in this state?"
He said "no."
I said "It goes to support the public school system. I looked at him, I said "You don't send your children off to the state to get educated, do you? You raise them at home the way Yahweh told the original Moses to tell you to do, don't you?" As he got up and walked away, I said "If you support the public education establishment, you are in violation of Deuteronomy 4:9-10, Deuteronomy 6:1-25 and Deuteronomy 11:19. And you practice the tenth plank of the Communist Manifesto."
As he stopped and turned back toward me, the look of a wild animal about to kill flickered across his eyes, I relaxed my tone and suggested these words.
"It looks as if this is all new to you; I apologize for this, but what I am trying to figure out is, why would Americans allow their government to knowingly spend 250 billion "fake dollars" a year from your pocket, defending themselves against something that your government has willfully and consciously implemented under the guise of the color of law, and that demands that the people practice every second of every minute of every hour of every day, under the guise of democracy and not the truth, which is communism? Is that sick or what?
He said, "My God, I never thought about that! What do you think we should do?"
I said, "Probably what you failed to do all along; and that is think for yourself; and listen to Yahweh and act in his best interest. Which is your best interest. It does seem that is why the Bible is here in the first place. Demand the Bible be implemented instead of communism. It seems the future of America depends on it."
