Just Secession. Trump Voters Seek A Revolution, Not A Civil War.

I am Laurie Thomas Vass, and this podcast is a production of the Citizens Liberty Party News Network.
We begin our advocacy of a new democratic republic by extending the question asked by C. Bradley Thompson “What type of person is attracted to Marxism?”
In his article, Why Marxism—Evil Laid Bare, Thompson writes,
“The better question here is: What kind of person is attracted to Marxism? The best scholarship now tells us that between 1917 and 1989 approximately 100 million people were murdered by various Marxist regimes, and millions more were tortured, starved, exiled, enslaved, and sent to concentration camps. Collectivization, one-party rule, man-made famine, secret police, arrests, propaganda, censorship, ethnic cleansing, purges, show trials, reeducation camps, gulags, firing squads, and killing fields—all these defined life under communism. Nothing in the long span of human history comes close to the tyranny, terror, and mass genocide caused by Marxism in power—nothing.”
Some conservative proponents of secession have questioned whether American Democrat Marxists would be willing to use violence and repression against their enemies.
For example, Michael Anton, in his new book, The Stakes: America at the Point of No Return, suggests that American Marxists may not have the right stuff to inflict violence against their enemies.
His phrase for the issue is whether American Marxists have the right “grit.”
“The destruction of enemies has never failed to whet the insatiable appetite [of Marxists] for more. At this point, policing their own would require our rulers to be copies of Stalin. They don’t have the grit for that.”
We disagree with Anton’s assessment that American Marxists do not have the right grit to inflict police state violence against their enemies.
Our disagreement is based upon our understanding of the type of logic and reason used by Marxists to impose socialism on conservatives.
