I ask, what is happening to our country? To answer that question, people should consider reading a book, “The Naked Communist,” written by W. Cleon Skousen 1958.

This book lists the history and long-term goals of Marxism in our country, and the 45 steps for achieving Communism in the United States. It was written over 60 years ago, but here are some of those steps that were shared from the book, that I feel are happening today.

No. 15: Capture one of the political parties in the U.S.

No. 17: Get control of the education system.

No. 20: Infiltrate the press.

No. 27: Replace “revealed” religion with “social” religion.


No. 28: Eliminate prayer in the schools.

No. 29: Discredit the Constitution.

No. 30: Discredit the American Founding Fathers.

No. 38: Transfer the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies.

No. 40: Discredit the family as an institution.

No. 42: Create the impression that violence is a legitimate form of protest.


We must wake up to what is happening now in our country. The Marxist long-term plan was to “fundamentally transform” our country.

Many of these goals have already been achieved, and others are in the process. We can stop this only by electing representatives who are willing to fight for our constitutional republic.

We must open our eyes and take a stand.
