Communism

There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism - by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide.

Ayn Rand

 

[Socialistic] economic planning, regulation, and intervention pave the way to totalitarianism by building a power structure that will inevitably be seized by the most power-hungry and unscrupulous.

Friedrich August von Hayek

There's a dishonest tyranny in the liberal/progressive/socialist agenda that comes down and says 'we are here because we care about you; we want what's best for you'. But really what they want is the control of your life.

I believe there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party.

Allen West

 

I hope that no one present will suspect me of offering my personal criticism of the Western system to present socialism as an alternative. Having experienced applied socialism in a country where the alternative has been realized, I certainly will not speak for it. The well-known Soviet mathematician Shafarevich, a member of the Soviet Academy of Science, has written a brilliant book under the title Socialism; it is a profound analysis showing that socialism of any type and shade leads to a total destruction of the human spirit and to a leveling of mankind into death.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

 

When the history of the 20th century is finally written, one of its key features will be the wanton slaughter of more than 170 million people, not in war, but by their own government. The governments that led in this slaughter are the former USSR (65 million) and the Peoples Republic of China (35-40 million). The point to remember is that these governments were the idols of America's leftists. Part of the reason for these and other tyrannical successes was because the people were first disarmed.

We need the private sector to create jobs. If the government could create jobs Communism would have worked, but it didn't.

 

If you look at the fact that the best chance we have for a good economy is the private sector. The government cannot create jobs. If the government could create jobs, then Communism would have worked. But didn't work. So what we have to do is allow the private sector and the entrepreneurial spirit to lead us back to a job-filled recovery.

Tim Scott

 

Communism has defeated itself everywhere except... in American colleges.

Paul Harvey

 

They have gun control in Cuba. They have universal health care in Cuba. So why do they want to come here?

Communism has never come to power in a country that was not disrupted by war or corruption, or both.

John F. Kennedy

Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!

Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism

by The Heritage Foundation and the Author:

 

Communism is like prohibition, it is a good idea, but it won't work.

Will Rogers
 

Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government which impartially secures to every man whatever is his own.

James Madison
 

Communism doesn't work because people like to own stuff.

Frank Zappa
 

Communism teaches and seeks two objectives: unrelenting class warfare and the complete eradication of private ownership.

Pope Pius XI

 

The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property.

Karl Marx
 

In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property. - Manifesto of the Communist Party

Karl Marx
 

You Americans are so gullible. No, you won't accept communism outright, but we'll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you'll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won't have to fight you. We'll so weaken your economy until you'll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.

Nikita Khrushchev
 

Communism is not love. Communism is a hammer which we use to crush the enemy.

Mao Zedong
 

The goal of socialism is communism.

Vladimir Lenin
 

The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.

Vladimir Lenin
 

I don't really view communism as a bad thing.

Whoopi Goldberg
 

I do not believe in communism any more than you do but there is nothing wrong with the Communists in this country. Several of the best friends I have got are Communists.

Franklin D. Roosevelt
 

It seems that the most important thing about Reagan was his anti-Communism and his reputation as a hawk who saw the Soviet Union as an 'evil empire.'

Mikhail Gorbachev
 

Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao's leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.
