We have all heard of The Naked Communist, the tome written by W. Cleon Skousen. My friend Snooper at A Newt One has broken it down into an easily digestible "List of 45" and I've linked it from Susan at Wake Up America.
List of 45:Not a pretty picture when laid out so clearly. It is a clear and easily understood roadmap of exactly what’s been going on the past 50 or so years in this country. The left has been actively engaged in making this list true while the right has been sleeping, blissfully unaware, with a few rare exceptions in our leadership (Ronald W. Reagan comes to mind).
The communist goals were entered into the Congressional record by Albert Herlong, Jr. (a Floridian who served in Congress from 1949-69).
1. US acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war. ATTEMPTED.
2. US willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war. ATTEMPTED.
3. Develop the illusion total disarmament by the US would be a demonstration of "moral strength." ATTEMPTED.

The American public has been lulled into a false sense of security by these infiltrations, so much so, the vast majority don’t even realize their country is gone.
We do have hope, and we have it from two sources with excellent plans of their own, what I call the American Manifestos.
The first is from Michael Savage. I don’t always agree with Savage; at times he can be way over the top. I do agree with his ideas and his knowledge of knowing exactly what’s going on and not being afraid to tell you in no uncertain terms. You may not like the messenger–that’s fine–but you better listen to the message.
This is Michael’s plan to restore America, the “Savage Manifesto” (emphasis is mine):
A. Cut Federal Income Taxes by 2 percent per year over four years, for a minimum total of 8 percent over four years.
B. Reduce Federal Government Departments in size by 4 percent each year, for a total reduction of size by 16 percent over four years.
C. Eliminate all public assistance for able-bodied recipients. Cut off all public assistance for immigrants for five years. Repatriate those who are not working, after two years.
D. Immediately impose tariffs on cars and trucks owned by foreign entities, even if they’re manufactured in America.
E. Cause illegal aliens to build a wall between the United States and Mexico, and then, repatriate them. Pay them a one-time worker fee.
F. Increase pay for active duty combat troops by 10 percent. Number Two. Fire any unmarried military person becoming pregnant while on active duty.”
G. Make abortions illegal, except when the physical survival of the mother is threatened, to be determined by three medical doctors. Require Norplant for all women on welfare of childbearing age.
H. Close all houses of sex and massage.
I. Expand the DEA, while decriminalizing most drugs.
J. Regarding the media; one, eliminate all foreign ownership of any American media entity. Two, break up overly large conglomerates, like News Corporation.
K. Encourage child bearing among tax paying citizens. Create a marriage incentive, through lower taxes for married heterosexual couples. And a government subsidy for each child conceived and carried to birth. Increase the subsidies for each year the couple remains married.
L. Repatriate all illegal immigrants now incarcerated. Encourage all other illegals to self-repatriate through double taxation on wages and fines on employers.”
A. Iraq: Send in Iraqi troops to mop up pockets of resistance. Make Iraq pay with their oil for the cost of the war. Cordon off Sadr City, force all residents to leave, then go in and mop up all resistance fighters. Divide Iraq into three to four sectors: Sunni, Shiite, Kurd and International. Remove all U.S. troops after above achieved.
B. Iran: One: Sanctions, embargoes and mined harbors. Nothing goes in, nothing comes out.
C. North Korea: Destroy their launching platforms, impose a Naval blockade on all goods coming in or out, except food.
D. Israel Arab Entities: Give Israel four years to become self-sufficient. Cut off all foreign aid to all nations.
E. China: 20 percent tariffs on all China made goods immediately and rising by 5 percent each year for each year China refuses to revalue their currency.
F. United Nations: Withdraw immediately. Remove all Diplomats and staff. Convert the United Nations building into housing for the working poor.
G. Mexico: Force Mexico to pay one barrel of oil for every illegal alien in the United States of America per month.
We have another brilliant mind who has come up with what the Republicans need to do in order to get back on track and stay on track–and stay in control.
It has been shown every time a voter is given a choice between a true conservative and a liberal, the conservative will win. Hands down. Americans don’t WANT to become "Europe lite". WE ARE AMERICANS and we like our way of doing things. Too many men and women have paid the ultimate price to grant us our freedoms. We’re not going to roll over and give it away.
So how do you stay in control? You give the people what they crave. TRUE CONSERVATISM. The corny “Donna Reed”, “Father Knows Best” and “Leave It to Beaver” type of conservatism we don’t see anymore.
Granted, part of that is illusory nostalgia. But it was based in solid fact. Mom stayed home and took care of the kids, dad earned a living and paid the bills, families took vacations once or twice a year, small government, marriage was forever and having a child out of wedlock wasn’t something to be proud of.
Churches were packed, children were respectful of their elders, families stuck together through thick and thin. School days started with a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance and the core curriculum was taught instead of a lot of special interests.
A family had a radio, a stereo if they were lucky and if they were really lucky, a TV. Children played outside and got scraped, bruised and cut up while they played ball, roller skated, rode their bikes and built forts in the backyard.
The 4th of July meant more than a day off from work, as did Veteran’s Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day and Flag Day (my children go nuts on flag day because I love my flag and have it everywhere). Soldiers were given the respect they had earned. There were relatively few draft dodgers.
Abortions were confined to back alleys because people inherently knew them for what they were and how wrong they were. If you became pregnant you often went to a school for unwed mothers and gave your baby up for adoption if the father was too craven to marry you. Unwed mothers carried a stigma of shame the rest of their lives.
If someone had to go on welfare or government aid it was viewed as charity and something to be avoided. It wasn’t something to be proud of.
It was all these things, and so much more, which made America great and America the Beautiful. We were blessed and we took it for granted.
Yet while we were “sleeping” the communists, the true haters, began their insidious infiltrations into every road and institution they could find.
We see where we are today because of that infiltration.
The Republican party ran itself as a business. Now, it runs itself as an insane asylum and the inmates have taken over. So I present the last “Manifesto”, written by Sonlit Knight at A Newt One. It’s hard hitting and right on target.
The Knight’s Manifesto (again, emphasis mine):
Here it is. My Thirteen-Step program to a PERMANENT Republican majority. I know it won't be implemented. It makes too much sense. In fact, *most of the tactics have been in practice by the Democrats for eons.There you have it folks. Both the Savage Manifesto AND Knight’s Manifesto are hard hitting, no nonsense responses to the Communist agenda alive and flourishing in this country. Americans, TRUE AMERICANS are sick and tired of (as Savage calls them) the RDDP’s (Red Diaper Doper Babies) ruining everything and the rest of the population sitting back and allowing them to do so. Get off your duffs, wake up and take your country back. It’s now or never.
*1. Fold the big tent up and burn it. Let's use John McCain as the standard. Anyone who is not manifestly right of John McCain gets no money or support. No tolerance for dissent from Conservative principles: economic, national security and social. Recruit only bonafides for candidates. Draft a rock rib, Conservative platform and force prospective candidates to sign it or they get no support.
*2. Follow our lead and scrap the New Tone. The principle thing which makes A Newt One different from other blogs is we have absolutely no problem fighting libtards with their own nasty tactics. We suffer no foolishness from moonbats whatsoever. Liberals believe they are entitled to be heard. They aren't. The place for liberals is in the corner, dunce cap on and mouth shut. Reagan wasn't nice to liberals. He laughed at them and made fun of them. He then steamrolled them. We need to do the same. Attack relentlessly and without mercy. Keep the Liberals on defense at all times by attacking them on the issues. Attack them on their own turf.
Pound Americans daily by showing how liberal tax hikes will make their paychecks smaller, how environmental nuts they support force us to import oil from terrorists and cost you $65 to fill your mini-van. Show Americans every day how the same party that talks ''healthcare costs'', kisses the backsides of trial lawyers who drive those costs up with bajillion dollar frivolous lawsuits. Make liberals defend ALL their wrong headed policies- every single one. Publish pictures of aborted fetuses and gay men swapping spit in a church. Show pictures of decaying schools from the districts of liberals who oppose school choice. Post pictures of children murdered by terrorists juxtaposed against the names and pictures of the gutless libtards who don't want to fight them. Produce videos of scientists deriding the folly of evolution and global warming theory. Appeal to American's common sense.
3. Follow the example of this year's Democratic primary season and pit liberal ''groups'' against each other. Divide and conquer. Use the racism and bigotry of liberals against them. Black vs White, Straight vs Gay, Old vs Young, Rich vs Poor. Fair? Maybe not. Nice? Certainly not.
I don't give a flip. Rule #1- Win. Rule #2- See rule #1. If you have to use their cut-throat tactics, so be it. This means that every stupid comment a libtard candidate makes gets played 100,000 times. The same goes for every attack on one lib by another during primary season.
4. Promote fear of Islam. We are constantly accused of this. If only it were true. Tell the truth of this barbaric religion of murder. Reject the politically correct horseshit that Islam must respected. It is a garbage religion. Say so. Emphasize daily that Islamic terrorists want to kill every American and the only way to stop them is to kill them and eradicate this malevolent religion of hate. Promise America if you are elected, you will put public school indoctrination into Islam to an end and vigorously oppose efforts to coddle Muslims (the Flight 93 memorial). You will be ASTOUNDED at the level of support.
5. An aggressive promotion of ''homophobia''. Most Americans find fags disgusting and are sick to the point of rage with them being given special treatment.
6. Our policy re: Illegal Immigrants. Deport them. All of them. Fine the crap out of employers who hire them, even as subcontractors or subs of subs. REQUIRE photo ID to vote, get a drivers license, go to a hospital or take a crap.
Build the wall 20 feet high and 6 feet thick and arm it with guards trained to shoot first and ask questions second.
Again, advocate this policy and voters will line up 6 deep for miles to vote for you.
7. Pedophiles. Get a rope. First offense. The end.
8. Seditious bastards. See #6
9. No liberal attack goes unanswered. Ever.
10. Drill and Refine. Screw the caribou and screw the liberals. Declare “Oil Blackmail” a clear and present danger to our National Security and command it by Executive order.
11. Bomb Iran. Just bomb it. Quick, decisive, overwhelming. Dare anybody else to F with us.
12. Tell Israel to take off the gloves and do what they need to do.
13. Cut taxes seriously for upper and middle class. Top rate down to 10%. Eliminate the Marriage penalty AND the Death tax.
Implement my agenda. You will win 45 States in a Presidential Election and 2/3 majorities in both houses.
I guarantee it.
