Some Americans are excited over the prospect of a socialist president; Bernie Sanders being the top contestant. “Everyone will have government jobs he grunted in one of his recent speeches.” Really?
Socialism was introduced in the early 19th century in utopian communities such as the Shakers. It was embraced by individualist anarchist Josiah Warren and labor activists who were mainly British, German, or Jewish immigrants who founded the Socialist Labor Party in 1877.
By 1901, the Socialist Party of America was born. America has been dealing with socialism in our midst for (over) a century. Because of our founding documents and principled statesmen in Washington, DC we have been able to thwart off the destructive effects of socialism….that is until the mid-1900s when the social security act was enacted.
This Act signed by then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1945, a Democrat, was the beginning of the downfall of our Nation as it was intended under the Constitution of the United States, circa 1776.
America had many years of growth, development and prosperity post-WWII, and if the act would have been repealed as it was supposed to be once it reached its sunset, we would probably all be in a better place today. Unfortunately, when you accustom an otherwise prosperous nation to being taken care of, it’s a magnet for complacency. Instead of saving our own money for our retirement, we give it to the government to manage. How is that socialism treating you folks?
It wasn’t enough that we enacted that monstrosity, but then we also enacted a Medicaid, welfare, food stamp program, along with other so-called social services which only serve the socialists. There have been billions of dollars in fraud in those programs since its inception, billions of dollars in fraud.
Because again, Americans have allowed this to take place. I don’t blame the people who take advantage and cheat the system as many do, that’s who those people are. I don’t even blame the politicians because they are staying in power by giving away these goodies and growing the government. I blame the American people. We allow it.
We allow it by electing corrupt, weak, thieving politicians and allowing them to remain in office until their retirement. Some are even dying in office like Ted Kennedy on the Democrat side and it looks like John McCain is going to be the Republican relic to go next.
Socialists are the most patient miscreants on earth. They slowly poison the society, removing more and more freedom from the individual while amassing more and more power to the state. Of course, we don’t get to choose who our representatives are.
See, they tell us who will represent and provide for us, because after all, we are incapable of determining what our needs are and how to provide for them. Socialists are the all knowing advocates of social justice. Left to your own devices, you are naturally racist, greedy, selfish, unworthy of freedom, and in need of handouts. In the eyes of a socialist, they are the ones that know what is best and by God, they are going to make you conform.
People who are weak and feeble minded willingly cheer Bernie Saunders, they follow him like sheep to the slaughter. The ones that balk are immediately shut down, first by limiting your speech (like Facebook and Twitter do). That’s how it starts. You can’t say this or you can’t say that, its racist, homophobic, anti muslim, sexist, misogynistic, and on and on. Then they work tirelessly in the taking of your gun rights.
Notice that in all socialist country speech and weapons are the two rights quashed before the take over starts. And you have Americans who allow themselves to be shut down, and for their gun rights to be dictated by the same people that are working towards transforming America from a free society, to a socialist hellhole. It’s absolute insanity.
Read up Saul Alinsky, read up on Karl Marx. See if it does not sound exactly like what is going on right now. Open your eyes! We are at a crossroads folks; we are losing our country. Our Borders are porous and our immigration laws are antithetical to the Constitution.
By the thousands Hondurans travel through Mexico and arrive at our borders, bringing with them disease, drugs, illiteracy, and who knows what else. But like idiots, we allow it. They are winning because we are letting them. Every single American should contact their representative and tell them enough. We are too comfortable watching our Netflix, and reality tv, playing video games and watching porn.
Poor pathetic people, they don’t know how valuable their freedom is until they are totally ruled by the State.
