Nobody Remembers Thomas Skidmore

The goal of socialism is communism.

The news that Bernie Sanders, America’s most honest progressive, has entered the Presidential race has excited more than one democrat that I know. And when you listen to Bernie, it’s hard not to agree with many of the things he says: Like these two quotes:Bernie Sanders

What we have seen is that while the average person is working longer hours for lower wages, we have seen a huge increase in income and wealth inequality, which is now reaching obscene levels. This is a rigged economy, which works for the rich and the powerful, and is not working for ordinary Americans … You know, this country just does not belong to a handful of billionaires.   —Bernie Sanders

 

Many a night I’ve heard Mark Levine say much the same things, and Mark is on the opposite site of the political fence. It’s not that we all can’t recognize the problems, it’s the solutions that need to be carefully weighed against history.

I wish that I could tell you that Bernie Sanders is refreshingly new…but no. This kind of talk has been around for a long time. So, I thought I’d introduce everyone to a man who lived in 1829. His name was Thomas Skidmore, and he wrote The Rights to Man of Property. EVERY man has the right to own property.  Thomas was the leader of the New York Workingman’s Party, and he was so radical, even they kicked him out.

From Wiki: Thomas Skidmore

Skidmore was an early critic of economic inequality in America. He argued that wealthy Americans had accumulated vast riches by exploiting the labor of the working poor, or by taking advantage of special privileges and favors from government, and that a fairer distribution of property was essential to a free and fair society. “Whoever looks at the world as it is now,” he wrote in The Rights of Man to Property!, “will see it divided into two distinct classes; proprietors and non-proprietors; those who own the world, and those who own no part of it.”[1] He believed that labor—the labor of so many ordinary, hard-working people—was the source of American wealth, and that American workers had been dispossessed of lion’s share of the value of their labor. He therefore argued for a new economic beginning for all Americans: all property in the United States should be divvied up and redistributed, in equal shares, to American citizens. From that point on, Americans would own their share as private property, and would relinquish it only when they died. Private inheritance would be abolished, and the wealth of the deceased would be pooled into a fund and reserved, in the future, for young people when they reached the age of 18. Upon reaching that age, all Americans would inherit a generous sum of money, understood as their birthright, to get them started in adult life.

He also said this:

Let the men of all nations be made equal among themselves in point of property, and then will wars be immediately self extinguish forever.

Here’s the trouble with communism and socialism.

Not everyone is equal. Even in communism, the rich still rape the poor. But the poor die in mass numbers. It never ends well. Everybody knows that, but the progressives still get elected on selling the same old song and dance, don’t they? They make promises to fix it, but all that happens is destructive tyranny. But then, you all know that…how come so many people don’t?

That’s the real question, isn’t it? communist Party

Bernie believes in LGBT rights, same-sex marriage, pro-choice legislation, He loves Obama’s treaty with Iran, and wants one-payer health care system..

But…he doesn’t want to get rid of Congress, and would have to tax us all to death to get all this free education and free property for everyone. And do you think he would refuse his salary as President? Ha ha..

But as wacko as Bernie is, Thomas went one step further.

He believed the poor should:

Lay hold of companies and make them their own. Let them appropriate, also, in the same way, the cotton factories, the woolen factories, the iron foundries, the rolling mills, houses, churches, ships, goods, steamboats, fields of agriculture..etc…AS IS THEIR RIGHT.

It is an equal division of property that makes all right, and an equal transmission of it to posterity keeps it.

And if you think about it, these very same ideas have been expressed by both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

To get to communism, you have to first introduced socialism.

The democratic party is now…just one hair shy of communism. And Thomas Skidmore would, if he were alive, fit right in.

What I’m trying to say, folks, is this stuff is not new to America. They’ve just spent billions of dollars re-educating the American children to embrace it.hillary socialist
