Was Karl Marx a Founding Father?

This is a depressing article in the Review Journal about the lack of knowledge Americans have about the Bill of Rights. It states,
Americans are woefully ignorant, correctly answering questions about the document only 32 percent of the time.

Most revealing is that 42 percent of Americans believe the concept of "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs" appears in one of the nation's founding documents, usually attributed to the Bill of Rights.

It is, of course, Karl Marx's central tenet for communism.

No wonder that this country is in such bad shape. The electorate is woefully uninformed and uneducated. Elections are being bought with big advertising dollars and the public is voting for the politician with the biggest budget.
