How Lenin Gained Power

The Bolsheviks were not a majority in Russia but Lenin recruited the Free Sh*t Army (thanks, augger), promised them “stuff” and demonized the wealthy, the business owners and the landowners.

Sound familiar?

Prior to the Russian Revolution, the Bolshevik party was not the most powerful. Lenin’s leadership, and his usage and manipulation of events taking place in Russia after his return, facilitated their ability to seize control. The Bolsheviks came to power at an especially volatile time in Russian history – the Provisional Government was weak-willed, disorganized, and ripe for Bolshevik insurrection.

The Provisional Government

The Mensheviks, the Bolsheviks, and the Socialist Revolutionaries were three that took part in the formation of the Provisional Government, instituted in February 1917. The Provisional Government, democratic in spirit, was loosely organized, internally conflicted, and incapable of making firm decisions. The Bolsheviks held a minority position in the Provisional Government, and this party’s ideology did not differ greatly from that of the Mensheviks and the Socialist Revolutionaries.

Lenin’s Return to Russia

That spring, with antagonistic motivations, Germany aided Lenin’s return to Russia, who was then residing in Switzerland. Lenin reshaped the Bolshevik party into one with a firm platform that appealed to peasant demands. Lenin promised distribution of land among peasants, socioeconomic reforms, and an end to Russia’s role in WWI. While the peasants felt that Lenin was on their side, he was less concerned with giving peasants what they wanted than he was intent on encouraging them to follow his leadership. Through this conduit, Lenin gained the power he needed in order to render the Mensheviks and the Socialist Revolutionaries impotent; while Bolshevik efforts to mobilize were not unknown to members of the Provisional Government, little was done to undermine their plans.

Lenin didn’t care about the Russian people, he cared about power.

Sounding more familiar by the minute.

  1. Promises promises promises.
    Empty, hollow ORAL Promises, where the ACTIONS shown by actual legislation, regulations, and exececutive orders prove are LIES.

    However the complicit “media” trumpets the oral lies.

    And says as little as possible of the voter “irregularities”.

    Once I have Power, “you” won’t be able to do anything about me.

    Hmmmm

  2. Utah,

    You forgot to tell people what Lenin did with the farmers. He killed most of them (the ones who actually knew HOW to farm) and gave the farms to the peasants. Then he told the peasants to meet their production quotas. When they failed — which they were destined to fail because they did not know how to farm — Lenin came to take the farms from then.

    Guess what the peasants said when Lenin came for the farms? You can’t take MY farm!

    Now wasn’t that special? The original farmers didn’t “deserve” their farms, but, once Lenin killed/stole the farms and gave them to the peasants, the peasants suddenly thought of them as THEIR farms and felt injured when Lenin came to take them back and give them to a third group of people.

    This cycle repeats throughout the Statist model, and the supposed “brightest and most enlightened” (self-appointed, by the way) NEVER grasp this simple lesson. I think that qualifies them as…what do you and Augger call them? Oh, yeah — DOLTS!

  3. The Russian Revolution was accomplished with only 100,000 revolutionaries out of a population of 184.6 million people in Russia in 1917. By that token, it would only take 170,012 people out of a population of 313,847,465 people in the U.S. to accomplish a Bolshevik Revolution in the U.S. So folks, this is the small number of people that we are actually fighting to accomplish Constitutional Government and freedom, but the Bolsheviks have co-opted so many people and infiltrated so many organizations with their disinformation campaigns that we have a huge education problem on our hands. The Communist Party was educating its members to infiltrate Christianity; Communist professors were documented with having urged infiltration of Christianity. Extremely well-meaning people, right now and for over 30 years, were lead to destroy Middle Class wealth, the Christian religion, and ultimately themselves. It is not that the precepts the Communists advance are incorrect; it is that they are being advanced to the exclusion of everything else, which destroys our economy and our churches. Evangelical Christians must be educated to understand that the Pro-Life campaign begun in the 1970s was a disinformation campaign. It is not that Pro-Life is wrong, it is that hollering at people does not solve the problem. A confrontational approach is mean to Christianity, the Christian way of life, and to Christians themselves. The Pro-Life campaign started during the late 1970s – early 1980s Recession. Now, why would the Pro-Life campaign have started at this particular time? The issue at that time was obviously fiscal and economic. Why would anyone be asked to focus on “Right to Life” during an economic crisis? And, why after over 30 years of rants has there been no resolution to the Pro-Life issue? The Pro-Life campaign was told way back in the 1970s when it first started that it is impossible to legislate morality, so why does this group continue down the same worn path even though they experience so little success?

    The Recession of the 1970s-1980s happened because of the same problem we have today. Our banks were being bankrupted due to defaulting loans to Developing Countries. Texas was destroyed economically, and Dallas changed hands. Reagan needed to end the U.S. relationship with the World Bank and the IMF, but instead the effort to loan money to Developing Countries was redoubled. Banks today carry all of the defaulted Developing Country loans on their books as good assets. If a Developing Country cannot pay the interest, the bank rolls the interest into the principal and rolls the whole loan over for another term. But, our Federal Government only came up with the idea of having banks call those defaulted loans good assets after they completely gutted Texas, which was the intention in the first place when you think about it, wasn’t it? Texas was king! Texas was perceived to have too much power, and Texas wealth derived from a tendency toward Laissez Faire Capitalism, the anti-thesis of Socialism. For a Socialist, what was there to like about Texas? For Communists and Socialists, the answer was nothing. In addition to hiding the fiscal and economic crisis behind Pro-Life, fashion moguls made Texas chic the rage. Everything “Texas” was in vogue during the 1970s – early 1980s Recession. Texas was set-up and gutted. How could anyone blame the Elitist Globalist Socialists for gutting Texas when they obviously loved and revered Texas so much so that they wore boots and prairie dresses all of the time? The fashion rage and the Right to Life issue were coined to hide and distract Evangelical Christians attention away from the real issue at hand – the immorality of Socialism, including the economic destruction of the Middle Class by Socialism. Socialism produces immorality because it allows the Federal Government to pay for immorality. There are too many people who do not want the Pro-Life issue resolved. Too many Pro-Life organizations make millions off of Christian donations, and they do not want their livelihoods threatened. Do you really think these people want the Pro-Life issue solved? How would these activists make a living if the Pro-Life issue was resolved? The solution is quite simple, and if Evangelical Christians will embrace it they will keep their churches, their wealth, and avoid self-destruction. Give Libertarianism, the wisdom of Our Founding Fathers, respect. Libertarian-Republicans are not going to continue allowing the Federal Government to pay for immorality and vice or the consequences of vice. Constant hollering about Pro-Life and other Social Issues instead of talking about Constitutional Government and freedom raises tremendous opposition. Stop hollering and take action against the real problem with a method that works – a message of freedom and Constitutionalism. Evangelical Christians need to quietly move to a position that guarantees the success of their goals. The beautiful big cathedrals in France are empty on Sunday, monuments to a by-gone era. Christian worship in all of Europe is non-essential; the Socialist state took over, and God’s blessings are no longer necessary. However, notice the melt-down of the Euro. Without God’s blessings, no nation can be successful. There is a new reformation coming to Christianity, if Christianity is going to survive. The Christian revolution must start with action toward freedom from victimization by all of the government spending and Liberalism, not with hollering at people. George Washington was an amazing man in God’s eyes: In that terrible winter at Valley Forge, angels appeared to George Washington foretelling the future of America. George Washington’s philosophy is the one to follow. Another Communist Globalist game is NeoCons promoting Reagan instead of Our Founding Fathers, even though Our Founding Fathers were so much closer to God than Ronald Reagan. The NeoCon RINOs do not want Libertarianism; they want Liberalism. Evangelical Christians need to choose political mentors who were the closest to God, Our Founding Fathers. Ronald Reagan was an inspiring speaker, but he obviously did not embrace the philosophy that could insure survival of the Christian religion for all generations to come.

Being hollered at or listening to a bunch of people hollering turns you off – Right? A confrontational approach is mean to Christianity, the Christian way of life, and to Christians themselves.

        For a little background on the era and the most obvious issue of the times, the Recession of the 1970s-1980s happened because of the same problem we have today. Our banks were being bankrupted due to defaulting loans to Developing Countries. Texas was destroyed economically, and Dallas changed hands. Reagan needed to end the U.S. relationship with the World Bank and the IMF, but instead the effort to loan money to Developing Countries was redoubled.

Texas was “King”! Texas was perceived to have too much power, and Texas wealth derived from a tendency toward Laissez Faire Capitalism, the anti-thesis of Socialism. For a Socialist, what was there to like about Texas? For wealth re-distributing Communists and Socialists, the answer was “nothing”. In addition to hiding the fiscal and economic crisis behind Pro-Life, fashion moguls made Texas chic the rage. Everything “Texas” was in vogue during the 1970s – early 1980s Recession.

How could anyone blame the Elitist Globalist Socialists for gutting Texas when they obviously loved and revered Texas so much so that they wore boots and prairie dresses all of the time?
        The fashion rage and the Right to Life issue were coined to hide and distract Evangelical Christians (Texas Middle Class) attention away from the real issue at hand – the immorality of Socialism, including the economic destruction of the Middle Class by Socialism. Destruction of Texas by the Mid 1970s – early 1980s Recession serves as a reminder and example for the destruction of the Middle Class. Some of the finest and most clever businessmen in the world were wiped out by the Socialist scheme to bankrupt Texas banks. Socialism produces immorality because it allows the Federal Government to pay for immorality, regulate it, and legislate it.

        There are too many people who do not want the Pro-Life issue resolved. Too many Pro-Life organizations make millions off Christian donations, and they do not want their livelihoods threatened. Do you really think these activists want the Pro-Life issue solved? How would these activists make a living if the Pro-Life issue was resolved? The solution to the Pro-Life issue is quite simple, and if Evangelical Christians will embrace it they will keep their churches, their wealth, and avoid self-destruction.

        The big beautiful cathedrals in France are empty on Sunday, monuments to a by-gone era when God reigned. Christian worship in all of Europe is non-essential; the Socialist state took over, and God’s blessings are no longer necessary. However, notice the melt-down of the Euro. Without God’s blessings, no nation can be successful. There is a new reformation coming to Christianity, if Christianity is going to survive. The Christian revolution must start with action toward freedom from victimization by all of the government spending and Liberalism, not with hollering at people. It must start with a new message of freedom and Constitutionalist Government for Christians.

        George Washington was an amazing man in God’s eyes: In that terrible winter at Valley Forge, angels appeared to George Washington foretelling the future of America. George Washington marshalled his little rag-tag army to victory in spite of all odds. George Washington’s philosophy, Libertarianism, is God’s political philosophy. Jesus Christ wants freedom for his flock, so they can prosper and enjoy God’s grace. Our Founding Fathers wanted prosperity and freedom from tyranny for America above all else.

        Betrayal of Christians is rampant. A new game was introduced in the past few years that keeps Christians from accepting Libertarianism as the only viable solution to our nation’s problems, and that is Reaganism. NeoCons promote Ronald Reagan instead of Our Founding Fathers, even though Our Founding Fathers were so much closer to God than Ronald Reagan. The NeoCon RINOs do not want Libertarianism; they want Liberalism and Globalist Corporatism. Ronald Regan, while paying lip-service to the philosophy of Our Founding Fathers, frequently fell short when it came to actual policy. Evangelical Christians need to choose political mentors who were the closest to God, Our Founding Fathers. Ronald Reagan was an inspiring speaker, but he obviously did not embrace the philosophy that could insure survival of the Christian religion for all generations to come. Only freedom and strict adherence to our Constitution guarantees the survival of Christianity in America.
