The Differences Between Marxism, Socialism & Communism

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.


This site tends to use the term Marxist when referring to Obama when in fact he is both a socialist and a Marxist.

The same goes for Hillary Clinton, though she tends to espouse more Marxist leanings while still being a socialist.  (Remember her failed health care plan of 1993)

by Sandra L. Campbell, Demand Media 

Karl Marx laid the groundwork for Marxism, socialism and communism.

In political circles and polite conversation, people often use the terms ”Marxism,” ”socialism,” and ”communism” interchangeably, as if the three philosophies are the same.


karl-marx-001However, they have important distinctions. Each philosophy builds upon the other. Marxism is the theoretical framework which lays the foundation for the economic and political philosophies of socialism and communism.

The Basics of Marxism

Karl Marx, writing with Friedrich Engels, developed a theory of social and economic principles and a sharp critique of the capitalist form of government in the mid-1800s. Marx believed that workers, under the capitalist system of government, sold their labor and that this labor became a commodity.

This commodity, or “labor power” translated into surplus value for the capitalist, but not for the worker. Marx concluded that this created an inherent conflict between the working class (proletariat) and the ownership class (the bourgeoisie).

Because capitalism has this “built in” inequality, Marx argued that the working class would eventually take power over the ruling class, reconstructing society. This reconstruction would take place in stages. The next stage after capitalism, according to Marx, would be a socialist form of government.

The Economics of Socialism

Socialism advocates public ownership of property and natural resources rather than private ownership. The socialist system of government values cooperation over the competitiveness of a free market economy.

Socialists believe that all people in society contribute to the production of goods and services and that those goods should be shared equally. This differs from the capitalist system in which individual efforts trump the collective and the free market determines the distribution of goods.

Examples of socialist policies include a living wage, free higher education and universal health care. Advocates of socialism believe that capitalism creates vast inequality and that it ultimately leads to imperialism, a hyper-form of capitalism.

Communism: The Last Stage

The communist doctrine differs from the socialist worldview because communism calls not only for public ownership of property and natural resources, but also for the means of production of goods and services.

Karl Marx argued that capitalism, with its strict adherence to free market principles, divided people because of competition. He believed communism was the solution. According to Marx, communism would give people a chance to develop into their very best.

He concluded that communism was a natural progression from socialism and would occur in two stages. First, the working class would gain control of society and push the ownership class out.

Second, society would evolve into a classless one without government. According to, Marx and Friedrich Engels defined communists in their “Communist Manifesto” as, “The most advanced and resolute section of the working class which parties every country, that section which pushes forward all others.”

Marxism, Socialism and Communism Throughout the World

Many countries have adopted various forms of Marxism, socialism and communism. The former Soviet Union is the most famous example of a communist system of government, lasting from 1922 to 1991.

The People’s Republic of China has a communist government, although, China has developed a more mixed market economy with private ownership and state ownership of entities such as media.

European countries like France, Italy and England have mixed economies with free market and socialist policies such as universal health care and free collegiate education.

The United States, a capitalist mixed economy, has examples of socialist policies such as public schools, libraries and health care support in the form of Medicaid and Medicare for low income people and senior citizens.

Let’s not forget ObamaCare!….Obama’s Health Care Rationing and Denial Program. (OHCDARP)

Obama is American Born: 100% Red, White & Blue American Born

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Like many others it appear I too have been wrong about Obama’s origin.

Who would have thought this to be the case?

The comments directly below are from one of our readers, Brea.


I believe her take on the article by Wayne Allyn Root makes a lot of sense. 

Published originally in the Blaze in October of 2013, I’m truly amazed that I completely missed this story.

We must thank the 5th arm of the government, our news media which doesn’t seem to have an investigative reporter among it. 

If Nixon hadn’t been a Republican, it’s likely there would have been no Watergate scandal  and Woodward and Bernstein.

Interesting, and inventive on the author’s part.  Very possibly the right track for at least some of this mysterious story of fraud. 
However, regardless of everything here that may be true, there is always the question of his eligibility based on birth:  a) we don’t really know where the bastard was born; b) his papa, whoever that was, unless it was Marshall, was not an American citizen, so according to most persons’ reading of the Constitution, the faker could not be president. 
Doesn’t Veritas mean truth in Latin?
Columbia and Harvard should be subpoenaed to furnish records.  But this love, and fear, of the American Negro has infected all efforts to arrive at the truth.  Disgraceful behavior right up through the Supreme Court. 
Obama is American Born
Incredible and I believe very, very close to the truth.  Where are his college records?
Obama is 100% Red, White & Blue American Born

Wayne Allyn Root is a former Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee, successful entrepreneur, small business defender, business speaker, Capital Evangelist, and media personality appearing on over 5000 interviews in the past 5 years.

Many Americans suspect Obama was foreign-born. They are wrong. Boy do I have a story to tell you.  I believe Obama is a fraud. But it has nothing to do with his birth. Obama’s critics have it all backwards. They are looking in the wrong place. He isn’t a foreigner portraying himself as an American. He’s an American who fraudulently portrayed himself as a foreigner.  Months ago MSNBC television host Rachel Maddow spent 15 minutes on her national show calling me a “birther.” I scratched my head. Because I’m not. Never have been, not for one minute.

A “birther” believes Obama is a foreigner, not legally qualified to be president. I have never believed that.  I’ve always believed that Obama is 100 percent American.
There I’ve said it loudly. I’m a leading critic of the President, but I’ve always believed him to be American born. He is as American as P.T. Barnum. And he lies and exaggerates like P.T. Barnum too. While Obama is not a foreigner, he is a fraud. Let me tell you the REAL Obama story. 
In hundreds of media interviews, I’ve stated that even though Obama was my college classmate at Columbia University, Class of 1983, and we shared the same majors (Political Science and Pre-Law), I never saw, met, or heard of him.
But the media has this story wrong too – I’ve never said that my conclusion is Obama did not go to Columbia. On the contrary, I believe Obama graduated Columbia and we are classmates.  Where was he hiding for those Columbia years? My educated guess is he was smoking pot and attending communist meetings, plotting the downfall of America and capitalism. Don’t laugh, it worked! 
Dreams_from_my_father While that was just an educated guess, Obama’s own autobiography backs me up – he personally admitted often attending Socialist Party meetings at Cooper Union in downtown Manhattan. With Obama, even your wildest guesses are often proven true.  But forget why he wasn’t seen at Columbia, the real mystery is how he ever got into Columbia. Stay with me – because this ties into the whole “foreign born” story. 

I believe I’ve pieced together what happened at Columbia and here it is. I believe that Obama, an American citizen, committed fraud by portraying himself as a foreigner, in order to gain almost impossible admittance to prestigious Columbia University (and probably Occidental and Harvard Law School as well).

He lied and used fraud (misrepresentation) to weasel his way in. Is that really a crime? Ask convicted criminal Frank Abagnale, the real-life star of the hit movie and best-selling book, “Catch Me if You Can.” Portraying someone you’re not is called fraud, and punishable by years in prison.  It doesn’t take a psychology degree to figure out Obama’s fragile mindset as a young man. He spent his youth living a fantasy, wanting desperately to be foreign-born and exotic, instead of just a normal American kid from a struggling single parent household.
As a black teen with no dad, Obama undoubtedly faced racism and tough times. With help from mentors (like Frank Marshall, a communist, and Bill Ayers, a terrorist) he learned to despise his country of birth (America).
As a dreamer and loner he started to believe his own story of exotic birth, then used that fantasy (aka fraud) to gain admittance to both Occidental and Columbia. 

Getting into an Ivy League University is extremely difficult and transferring in is virtually impossible. Every year 30,000 kids try to get into a college like Columbia.

Only a small fraction are accepted (there were about 700 in our class of 1983). The battle is cut-throat. Virtually all 30,000 are straight-A students, have close-to-perfect SAT scores, and have achieved out-sized success at extracurricular activities too.  Into that dog-eat-dog competition stepped Barack Obama, a young man with no achievements, except an exotic story of Indonesian upbringing.Last year Columbia accepted only three transfer students in the entire world. Three. And I guarantee you all three had amazing scholastic and achievement records from other Ivy League colleges like Harvard, Yale, or Princeton.

This obscure French pamphlet from 1850 predicted today’s America

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Like a modern day Nostradamus, Michel de Nostredame, usually Latinised as Nostradamus:


He was  French  and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies that have since become famous worldwide.

The following quotes come from French classical liberal, economic journalist and legislator Frédéric Bastiat’s 1850 pamphlet, “The Law.”


1. It started with “hope and change” ”While society is struggling toward liberty, these famous men who put themselves at its head are filled with the spirit of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

They think only of subjecting mankind to the philanthropic tyranny of their own social inventions. Like Rousseau, they desire to force mankind docilely to bear this yoke of the public welfare that they have dreamed up in their own imaginations…

Listen to the ideas of a few of the writers and politicians during that period [the late 1780s]:

SAINT-JUST: The legislator commands the future. It is for him to will the good of mankind. It is for him to make men what he wills them to be.

ROBESPIERRE: The function of government is to direct the physical and moral powers of the nation toward the end for which the commonwealth has come into being.

BILLAUD-VARENNES: A people who are to be returned to liberty must be formed anew. A strong force and vigorous action are necessary to destroy old prejudices, to change old customs, to correct depraved affections, to restrict superfluous wants, and to destroy ingrained vices…. Citizens, the inflexible austerity of Lycurgus created the firm foundation of the Spartan republic. The weak and trusting character of Solon plunged Athens into slavery. This parallel embraces the whole science of government.

LE PELLETIER: Considering the extent of human degradation, I am convinced that it is necessary to effect a total regeneration and, if I may so express myself, of creating a new people.

2. And a social justice agenda ”Now this must be said: When justice is organized by law — that is, by force — this excludes the idea of using law (force) to organize any human activity whatever, whether it be labor, charity, agriculture, commerce, industry, education, art, or religion. The organizing by law of any one of these would inevitably destroy the essential organization — justice. For truly, how can we imagine force being used against the liberty of citizens without it also being used against justice, and thus acting against its proper purpose?”

Yep, Obama didn’t get their on his own.

3. That enabled Obamacare ”But when the law, by means of its necessary agent, force, imposes upon men a regulation of labor, a method or a subject of education, a religious faith or creed — then the law is no longer negative; it acts positively upon people.

It substitutes the will of the legislator for their own wills; the initiative of the legislator for their own initiatives. When this happens, the people no longer need to discuss, to compare, to plan ahead; the law does all this for them. Intelligence becomes a useless prop for the people; they cease to be men; they lose their personality, their liberty, their property.

Try to imagine a regulation of labor imposed by force that is not a violation of liberty; a transfer of wealth imposed by force that is not a violation of property. If you cannot reconcile these contradictions, then you must conclude that the law cannot organize labor and industry without organizing injustice.”

4. And the IRS scandal, DOJ malfeasances, etc. ”Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Thus the beneficiaries are spared the shame, danger, and scruple which their acts would otherwise involve.

Sometimes the law places the whole apparatus of judges, police, prisons, and gendarmes at the service of the plunderers, and treats the victim — when he defends himself — as a criminal. In short, there is a legal plunder

5. Where law was used as a weapon ”But, generally, the law is made by one man or one class of men. And since law cannot operate without the sanction and support of a dominating force, this force must be entrusted to those who make the laws.

This fact, combined with the fatal tendency that exists in the heart of man to satisfy his wants with the least possible effort, explains the almost universal perversion of the law.

Thus it is easy to understand how law, instead of checking injustice, becomes the invincible weapon of injustice. It is easy to understand why the law is used by the legislator to destroy in varying degrees among the rest of the people, their personal independence by slavery, their liberty by oppression, and their property by plunder.

This is done for the benefit of the person who makes the law, and in proportion to the power that he holds.”

6. And condoned in a culture of political corruption ”The law has been perverted by the influence of two entirely different causes: stupid greed and false philanthropy.”

In their own words: “With pretty boy Paul Ryan’s draconian and savage cuts to Medicare in his budget proposal, we have to ask ourselves: Is America still beautiful without Medicare?”

Is it time for We The People to rise up against the frightened politicians and the Constitution for which it stands?


By: Dwight Kehoe


December 14, 2013 ~TPATH~ This past week has once again revealed some quite startling news.  Most of which has been ignored, as usual, by the main stream media and to some extent even by pundits on the right.
As new polls show Obama has slipped in the polls to even lower approval ratings than George W. Bush had after 8 years of relentless attacks from local, national and international news services, the same orgasmic reportage’ concerning Bush’s ratings, seems not to arouse them.

Other news that even Drudge found to be not news, his website never even posted a headline on it, was that fact that yet another person involved with the fraud and corruption of Obama has assumed her place in eternal silence. Loretta Fuddy, the only human being who has claimed to have seen Obama’s original birth certificate was allowed to drown, or even worse, when the plane she was in glided into the ocean just after takeoff.

This report is not about Fuddy’s death but if anyone wants to see just how odorous this is, please read this linked article. 

Many of those whom TPATH has contact with are excited that Obama’s lies and deceptions are finally “Coming home to roost”, to coin a phrase.  To a person they all think these new poll numbers will weaken Obama, fortify the spineless RINOs and have the ultimate effect of keeping him, in his last three years, from continuing his intentional destruction of America.

Maybe so, but maybe not!  
In fact, his poll numbers could actually precipitate disaster.

First a little history.  Of Communism that is.  For well over a hundred years,  Communism has murdered, slaughtered and starved to death millions upon millions of their own people in order to get and keep control of even the poorest of third world countries.  And without a peep from the so-called Democracies of the world.  At least until long after the genocide had been completed and the mass graves bulldozed in.

Pravda Calls Obama a Communist, Blames his Reelection on ‘Illiterate Americans’

crew-223Comment by Jim Campbell, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

There is little doubt that the U.S. electorate is woefully undereducated and has demonstrated this fact by continuing to elect progressive administrations which destroy our once strong economic base.


It’s a safe bet that if the reader wanted a shot on news the U.S. media would not report up until just recently, Pravda would expose readers to views that would send the traditional media running like scalded dogs!

  Dustin Stocton Blog (written in 2012)

Oh, how times have changed. Obama is too Communist even for Pravda.

Pravda, the famous Russian newspaper most notable for being the bullhorn of the former Soviet Union, has announced their bewilderment at the stupidity of America for reelecting Obama. Citing his reelection as a result of “illiterate Americans,” the author, Xavier Lerma, explains that Obama is a communist through and through and shakes his proverbial head at the willingness of America to reelect a communist who aims to follow the catastrophic Soviet model.

It’s strange to say, but Pravda and I are of the same mind…

Lerma writes,

“The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake… Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria.”

It’s sad, but true. Not everyone who voted for Obama is illiterate, but generally speaking, Obama was able to keep his job by pandering to the ignorant masses. By peddling his lies of “war on women,” promising the continuation of “free” stuff and inciting class warfare, he masterfully pulled off one of the greatest cons of the century.

Lerma continues,

“O’bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with projects like ‘fast and furious’ and there is still no sign of ending it. He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.”

Why a contrived crisis can never be allowed to go to waste

American Communist Party Members, don’t me misled by the fact they are registered Democrats and members of Congress: They are also registered members of the American Communist party.


For those of us desiring to maintain a Constitutionally driven Republic, it is incumbent upon us to understand the differences between liberals, democrats, socialists, Marxists and Communists.

The Cloward/Piven Strategy of Economic Recovery

By Nancy Coppock

Using borrowed money for a band-aid bailout of the economy should seem backwards to most people. However, it likely is a planned strategy to promote radical change.
Those naively believing that  Obama is simply rewarding his far-left base, and will then move to the political center, must wise up.

The assumption that Obama will need the nation to prosper in order to protect the 2010 mid-term election incorrectly assumes that he esteems free market capitalism. He does not. Rather than win through superior ideas and policies, the Democrat plan for success in the mid-term elections is to win by destroying political opposition.
Obama adheres to the Saul Alinksy Rules for Radicals method of politics, which teaches the dark art of destroying political adversaries. However, that text reveals only one front in the radical left’s war against America. The Cloward/Piven Strategy is another method employed by the radical Left to create and manage crisis. This strategy explains Rahm Emanuel’s ominous statement, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
The Cloward/Piven Strategy is named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. Their goal is to overthrow capitalism by overwhelming the government bureaucracy with entitlement demands. The created crisis provides the impetus to bring about radical political change.
Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, wrote Cloward and Piven, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation… [Emphasis added.]
Making an already weak economy even worse is the intent of the Cloward/Piven Strategy. It is imperative that we view the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan’s spending on items like food stamps, jobless benefits, and health care through this end goal.
This strategy explains why the Democrat plan to “stimulate” the economy involves massive deficit spending projects. It includes billions for ACORN and its subgroups such as SHOP and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Expanding the S-Chip Program through deficit spending in a supposed effort to “save the children” only makes a faltering economy worse.

In Communist Cuba, the Tax Man Cometh

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot.

As Cuba begins to move away from communism to a more market oriented system the citizens will feel significant pain.


This would be an excellent idea to impose upon those in our country who pay no taxes and live off the taxpayer. 
Begin a progressive tax system on all, no matter how little an individual receives.
Perhaps when those living essentially for free realize it isn’t enough they will decide to go to work so they can continue to afford their cars, cell phones, and flat screen T.V.’s.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message. 
By: Reuters

Most Cubans have not paid taxes for half a century, but that will change under a new code starting January 1.

 Donald Nausbaum  Getty Images Havana, Cuba, The Ministry of the Interior located in the Plaza de la Revolucion.

The landmark regulations will change the relations of Cubans with their government and are a signal that market-oriented reforms, launched since President Raul Castro succeeded his brother, Fidel Castro, in 2008, are here to stay.

The recently published code constitutes the first comprehensive taxation in Cuba since the 1959 revolution abolished just about all taxes.

In the 1990s after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the country’s main benefactor, the Cuban government imposed a few scattered taxes, but mostly preferred to maintain low wages so it could fund free social services.

Obamacare will be stopped by the states

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot.

It is a safe bet that if any part of Obama’s Health Care Denial and Rationing Program is left standing it will not be recognized by the Czars that wrote it.

While Marxist ideology runs deep through Obama’s veins even Karl won’t be helping him with this loser. 

Obama used force, bribes back room deals in the dark and arm twisting to pull it off but it was always DOA in the minds of We the People who rejected it 2:1

To be implemented requires force, and that will not happen.

Already we are seeing the effects of employers cutting workers hours or closing down their operations entirely all for a socialist program that had nothing to do with health care but everything to do with power.  The power to grab 18% of the United States’ faltering GDP.

By Twila Brase, President

Obamacare can be stopped… by the states. Governors must refuse to comply with HHS’ demand that they make a written declaration by  this Friday, November 16, regarding a state-established federal Obamacare exchange. They must stand like Kansas Governor Sam Brownback who said,

“Kansans feel Obamacare is an overreach by Washington and have rejected the state’s participation in this federal program. My administration will not partner with the federal government to create a state-federal partnership insurance exchange because we will not benefit from it and implementing it could costs Kansas taxpayers millions of dollars.” (Politico, Nov 8)
