Letter: Divided we fall, not stand

On Jan. 10, 1963, Congressman Albert S. Herlong Jr. of Florida read a list of 45 Communist goals into the Congressional Record. Unfortunately all of these goals have been achieved in the U.S.

I keep hearing and reading where this president is “dividing the nation.”

With what this president has done, it seems to me that the only dividing I have seen being done is a separation and exposing of the socialist left from those of us that are true Americans and wish for our country to remain the beacon of the world. The simple truth here is that Obama did more to divide this nation than any single person in our history, and Trump seems to be doing a good job of exposing this, hence the hatred from the left. He laid bare the total and complete hypocrisy of the left and basically has shown that politicians in general are not true patriots.

This nation is on the brink, and if one goes back and read this list of 45 Communist goals, you cannot deny that these goals have been achieved.

No. 15 is of particular interest here. Capture one or both of the political parties in the U.S. I dare say the Democrat party has been completely captured, as their goals are all socialist in nature.

No. 17: Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers associations. Put the party line in textbooks. The American education system is a shining example of this success.

My point here is that the left in this country has completely drank their fill from the well of Marx, and the right is sipping through a straw on its way to the same thing.
