Joseph Stalin Got It Right

As we approach the 2012 presidential election, we should reflect on something that General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union Joseph Stalin said:

“America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”

Saying that Stalin has followers at the highest levels of government in the United States is an understatement.
