America is secretly run by a communist government that is giving guns to terrorists to attack our country, they are allowing mexicans into our country to take our jobs, and they are putting trump in power to slowly starve america from our former glory and Russia will invade us soon. The democratic government is just a facade that is fueled by the cancer that is cnn and nbc.

I will accept this debate. I assume there is no prior criteria, and you began with an argument as to why you believe America is a Communist nation.

I will begin by saying that Communism, as defined by the Business Dictionary, is,
"(an)Economic and social system in which all (or nearly all) property and resources are collectively owned by a classless society and not by individual citizens."

To simplify, this is to say that Communism is a system of economy and government in which their are no distinct classes; instead, each person is equal in wealth and prosperity(or lack thereof), and that no one person has any more power than the others. This in itself should show that the United States is not a communist nation, as its market is capitalistic in nature, and its government is that of a federal republic.

There is no way for any nation to have a "secret" communist government; if the actions and dealings of that government are capitalistic and democratic(as is the case in the United States), then the government is de facto capitalistic and democratic, even if there are communistic thoughts in the people who run the nation.
