Obama file 49 here
The best way to determine the Obama administration's likely agenda is to read the communist press.
Very few US voters would have any inkling that the approximately 3,000 members of the Communist Party USA have a huge influence on the policy and direction of the Democratic Party.
The Communist Party and their Marxist allies in Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)and Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS) have long abandoned violent revolution as the primary means of acheiving power in the USA.
For many years CPUSA, DSA and CCDS have worked to change America through infiltrating and influencing the Democratic Party.
This has been done by moving secret socialists into the Democrats, but more impotantly, by the infiltration of socialist ideas and concepts into the DP's program.
This is the real secret and the real threat of American socialism.
If the US ever completely succumbs to socialism, it will be because Marxist controlled trade unions and pressure groups have managed to insinuate their policies into the Democratic Party and use their sympathisers to pass them into law.
The process is simple.
The Marxists come up with a policy.
They promote it through their hundreds of front organisations, to build real and/or fake public support.
Their sympathisers and secret members in the Democratic Party, pick the policy up and promote it as their own, or as a response to "public opinion".
The Democrats then pass the policy into law, with voters remaining completely unaware of its communist origin.
The marxists move onto the next policy.
The best examples of communist/socialist inspired social change on a major scale were FDR's "New Deal" of the 1930s and Johnson's "Great Society" of the 1960s.
The American left sees the Obama presidency as an opportunity for "social change" on a scale never before seen in US history.
The strategy is to introduce socialised medicine, greater union rights and other social programs to move even conservative voters permanently into the Democratic Party camp. US Marxists want to emulate the communist inspired programs of the post World War 2 British Labour Party which locked in the British working class behind Labour for several decades.
The Communist Party wants to make US workers completely dependent on the Democrats as a step on the road to socialism.
Below is an article from Political Affairs, the theoretical journal of the Communist Party USA.
Its author Norman Markowitz, is an history professor at Rutgers University in New Jersey and a long time Communist Party member.
Markowitz, like the rest of his party is a strong supporter of Barack Obama
Markowitz explains communist strategy for an Obama presidency and the policy agendas the CPUSA wishes their new president to pursue.
Obama's Mandate for Change
Obama won a solid victory in both the popular vote and the Electoral College and will have a solid majority in Congress.
Obama certainly has a mandate, and it is a mandate for change. Obama's slogan, Change We Can Believe In, was reminiscent of slogans like the New Deal of Roosevelts 1932 campaign and the Great Society banner under which Johnson won in 1964. In the latter cases, those slogans translated into the major policy domestic agendas of those administrations.
For the people who elected Obama and the increased Democratic majority, change we can believe in isnt about bailouts for corporations and banks. It isn't about wearing American flag pins on your lapel while the military budget continues to escalate and bankers and corporate CEOs wine and dine. Change we can believe in isnt about a spruced up version of trickle down theory or the same policies behind a fresh face in the White House.
It is about reversing and repealing the policies that have both led to the immediate financial crisis and looming global depression. It is about ending the post-World War II policies that led to the long-term stagnation and decline of the labor movement. It is about creating a national public health care program more than 50 years after it was established in other major industrial nations, and handling a national debt which has increased 10 times since Ronald Reagan became president in 1981.
A single payer national health system known as socialized medicine in the rest of the developed world should be an essential part of the change that the core constituencies which elected Obama desperately need. Britain serves as an important political lesson for strategists. After the Labor Party established the National Health Service after World War II, supposedly conservative workers and low-income people under religious and other influences who tended to support the Conservatives were much more likely to vote for the Labor Party when health care, social welfare, education and pro-working class policies were enacted by labor-supported governments.
In addition, passing the Employee Free Choice Act to make joining a union easier and to expand the base of union voters who supported Obama by nearly 50 points on Nov. 4 seems only logical. It would also provide a massive boost for working families struggling with stagnant incomes, high health care costs, retirement costs and job insecurity.
The best way to win over the the portion of the working class in the South or the West that supported McCain and the Republicans is to create important new public programs and improve the social safety net. National health care, significantly higher minimum wages, support for trade union organizing, aid to education should all be on the agenda. These programs will improve the quality of our lives lives directly, giving us greater security and establishing the social economic changes that will bring reluctant voters into the Obama coalition. That is how progress works.
The right-wing propaganda machine will scream socialism, and that is also a good thing. Because the more socialism comes to be identified with real policies that raise the standard of living and improve the quality of life for the working class and the whole people, the more socialism will be looked at seriously. A stronger left that follows the tradition of the Communist Party in its unbreakable commitment to a socialist future and to educating people about the value and necessity of socialist policies in the present could follow.
Who wants to bet against my prediction that all the policy agendas suggested by Markowitz will be "on the table" during Obama's first term?

Nice job voters — the ‘brown shirts’ are coming to your neighborhood.

None of this is a problem. Like the Republicans who voted for Obama say..."He can't do any harm in just four years."
Go back to sleep.
