Socialism, The Downfall Of America
How Far Will Socialists Go? All The Way
Most people want the best for their children, right? Well thanks to the denial and naivety of present day and past generations of Americans, that idealistic gesture may be a thing of the past. Future generations may never get the opportunity to enjoy the freedoms currently enjoyed in this great nation of ours since Americans have been falling asleep and allowing the government to seize more and more control of our lives.
Whether you choose to believe it or not, the simple reality is that our country has been under attack, from within, by socialism, and American citizens have been allowing it to happen. Partially out of ignorance of what socialism really is and partially out of denial that it could possibly exist.
Regardless, socialism has poisoned this country because Americans have turned a blind eye to it. After years of slow infiltration it is now so deeply embedded within our culture that it may be impossible to take our country back. However, if enough Americans truly understood what socialism was, how destructive it is and acknowledge that it really does exist then we may still have a chance to stop its spread and save our country for future generations.
Wake Up Before It’s Too Late
Don’t believe it? Heard it all before? It’s just more blah-blah-blah? Wake up, look around.
We have American voters electing open socialists to public office. Ever hear of Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont? He openly states that he is a socialist Democrat. In fact, in his office hangs a picture of Eugene Debs, one of the socialist party presidential candidates of the early twentieth century. Sanders, who has recently entered the 2016 presidential race believes that the rich need to be taken down a notch or two and that increasing taxes on the rich will help the poor.
Liberal Democrats are teaching socialism to your children right under your nose. They camouflage their curriculums under the banner of social justice, civil rights, caring and compassion.
So go right ahead, dismiss the socialist’s agenda. Ignore their plan for total government control (ever hear of Obamacare). Ignore the constant chant by the media, liberal Democrats and RINO’s and the unconscious public about “redistribution of wealth” (which is a tactic used by socialists).
Disregard those who teach your children and grandchildren that the government is good and can solve all problems but businesses and companies are evil and bad.
Close your eyes to the fact that American history is being rewritten by the left. These liberals believe that the history being taught to school children today is full of lies. America has always been a very bad country, we hurt people, we don’t help other nations in need, therefore, they have to correct the books and tell the real truth about bad America.
After you take your head out of the sand and the government starts to control where you live, if you get to work or not, how much money you’re allowed to make, if you get to live or die and then intimidates you if you dare to speak up; maybe then you will realize that socialism was not just a bunch of blah-blah-blah.
Guess what though, by then it will be too late. By the time most Americans figure out the true agenda of socialism, there will no longer by private property, free speech or freedom of any kind. Because, you see, under socialism, the government can do whatever it wants to do. The government controls, the government rules and the people have nothing to say about it. The government can take property away from whomever it wants to. It can tax whatever and whomever it wants to. It makes all decisions…and the people have nothing to say about it.
A socialist economy is not a highly productive economy because there is no incentive or motivation to work. In socialist countries the government takes care of the citizens’ every single need so the citizens do not have to work (that’s call dependency). Keep in mind that under socialism ALL of the citizens (not just the poor) are dependent upon the government for everything from the day they are born until the day they die (that includes food, clothing, housing, education, healthcare). Is that how you want your children to live? Don’t you want your children to be free to choose, free to strive and explore?
The Real Truth
Under the political theory of socialism, we are all equal. That sounds right, after all our Founding Fathers state in the Constitution that we are all created equal. But here is where the socialists spin it. Socialists believe that no one should have more than anyone else therefore, the government must equalize us by taking from those darn rich people and give to the poor people. But wait, our Founding Fathers formed a government that would protect the people from the government.
Not one American would disagree that we need to help our poor (and we do, we are one of the most charitable nations on the planet). But most Americans do not understand that socialists want the government to be the gatekeeper, thereby deciding who gets what.
The government will be the ones taking from us to give away as the government sees fit. The government wants to be in charge of deciding who gets to work, who gets to eat, who is rich, who is poor or in need, who gets to live or die (under Obamacare). Do Americans really understand that? Americans are so naïve, so the answer is no.
Do As You’re Told Now
Unfortunately most Americans have been unconscious and they’ve been drinking the Kool-Aid that the media has been dishing out for all these years. So because of the sugar-coated lies spewed out by the liberal leaning media, and no push back by conservatives, most people do not even know the definition of socialism or how socialism is destroying and poisoning our nation.
And even when told the truth, most Americans cannot simply comprehend that their government wants to steal from them (oops, redistribute), control them and manipulate them. So they dismiss the truth and continue to believe lies instead.
Many young people today are even worse. They don’t know (or care) about what socialism or capitalism stands for. Those two contrasting political theories influence their future and one of those theories is out to destroy that future. Someday when the government owns them maybe they’ll get it…but it will be too late. Americans, young and old, need to seize the moment and start understanding that the future of this nation and our entire culture is at stake.
Hard To Swallow
The only way for the spread of socialism to be stopped is for Americans to understand the socialism definition and the definition of capitalism. There are certain things in life to fear, and socialism is on of those things. Socialism is one step away from communism. Did you ever think that socialism in America, land of the free and home of the brave, would be more than just and idle threat by a few fringe kooks? Still don’t believe it? You’d better start.
Definition Of Socialism
The Urban Dictionary defines a socialist as
- “one who believes that a person’s body, health, soul, money, property and rights should belong to the state.”
- “one who believes in limited personal liberty (Obamacare) and more government control over one’s life (Obamacare). They believe that your rights are granted (and taken away) by government, rather than by the individual.”
- “one who thinks that the hard-working people should share their paycheck with their lazy neighbors, just because they have more money. Even though they worked hard for their money, they should still give it to their neighbor who sits on their couch watching TV all day, because it wouldn’t be fair if the hard worker had more money”.
Do You Understand?
Get it? Socialists are anti-American. This country was never about collectivism (except for a very brief time the first settlers under the direction of William Bradford tried it).
America was not founded to allow an intrusive government to be your caretaker and control every aspect of your entire life. Our Founding Fathers fought and died for our individual rights, our freedom. Our rights, property, money, body, health and souls do not belong to the government. Our Founding Fathers fled countries where the government believed it owned the individual. And yet, that is exactly where our country is headed. Do you get that? Socialists want the government to own you. And you had better believe that we have representatives in federal, state and local governments, the White House and the Congress who believe in socialism.
The Government Is Coming For You Next
Since socialists believe that it’s unfair for some to have more than others, their answer to equalizing us is wealth redistribution. Have you ever really listened to Mr. Obama’s speeches, he’s all about wealth redistribution. Have you ever taken the time to listen to liberal Democrats and RINO’s talk, they all pontificate the same propaganda about wealth redistribution.
Socialists believe that the rich are scoundrels therefore taking from them and giving to the poor is an acceptable means to transfer wealth. Think about it though, they will never have enough so once they finish draining the rich, they will come after the middle class; no one will be safe from their grasp.
Socialists are always promoting and advocating utopia. They claim to just want love, peace and utopia for all and their political theories will get us there…but they leave out the part about you having to give up your freedom to attain that utopian state. You have to trade your individualism for group think and collective action…all for the common good of course, so we can all live in utopia. Really!!??
Definition of Capitalism
Socialists hate capitalism and free enterprise, the 1st Amendment (which still gives us free speech) and individual freedom. Under capitalism, individuals can still own private property. Individualism, self-reliance and limited government mean something under capitalism. Freedom, liberty, choice, independence and self-determination all define capitalism.
Have you noticed that capitalism is not about taking from you, beating you down or equalizing everyone? But instead it’s about helping the individual become the best person he or she can be. What a positive upbeat, encouraging and constructive outlook. What a contrast from socialism.
You Want Proof, Here’s Proof
There is so much evidence (if people would just look for it) that socialism has failed every time it has been tried. One of the first group of settlers in America, under the leadership of William Bradford, tried socialism/collectivism when they came to America aboard the Mayflower. Guess what, they scraped it because it failed. These settlers set up their new colony to have everything owned and distributed collectively. Anything produced by anyone was for the common good (the community). Everything was then divided up based on simply showing up and being a part of that community, not based on effort put in to produce.
So no matter how hard or little any of these individuals worked, they were all equal so they all received the same benefit…the same amount of food, water, etc. The more diligent and creative individuals of the group worked harder and gave it their all; the less inclined did not.
When the hard workers realized that the benefits received was not based on their efforts there was no longer any motivation or incentive to work any harder than anyone else in the group. After all, if they received the same benefits as those individuals who worked very little or not at all, than why bother.
There’s your proof that socialism does not work. However liberals continue to rewrite our history books because they don’t want us to know the truth about the failures of socialism.
We’re Not Far Behind Hitler
Americans continue to believe the lies and utopian fairy tales churned out by the media and elected representatives. They never question, they believe too easily…so did the people of Germany.
I bet that most Americans do not know that Hitler ran on a national socialist platform which promised equality for all, taking from the rich and redistributing their wealth and guaranteed government care for all. And we know how that worked out. The people exchanged their freedom and free speech for government promises. The American people are doing the same thing. We are headed down the same path. When will Americans get it?
What Is Government For?
Our Founding Fathers worked long and hard to develop fair and just laws for their new United States of America. I’m sure they asked themselves over and over what authority they wanted their new government to have. They knew they didn’t want an intrusive type of government, like the ones they left; they wanted a government that was limited in power, authority and influence. It would have been very easy for them to seize the opportunity to write laws and a constitution granting themselves all of the power, after all they were the ones writing it. But they didn’t. They had the foresight to understand how their actions would affect many, many generations to come (unlike today’s liberal Democrats and RINOS’s who are just in the game for their own personal gain).
So our Founding Fathers limited the government’s authority to military, monetary and safety. They gave the government command of our military to protect us from foreign entities. Control of the currency to stabilize it for trading purposes. And the responsibility to protect public safety through the maintenance of public roads and bridges. Regrettably, our Founding Fathers would detest the corruption and abuse that our current day leaders have allowed to fester within our government today.
The Magnitude of Election 2016
Can we reverse the damages? Our way of life in America will be irreversible unless the American public wakes up and starts to realize just how critical the 2016 elections are for changing the direction of this country. More Americans truly need to understand the life altering agenda the liberals have in store for us if they control the presidency and both chambers of congress.
By the grace of God we still have our freedom to vote (some day we may not) so American voters wake up and step up. We still have the freedom to elect new politicians to represent us in Congress and the presidency. We need to elect leaders who still believe in the America our Founding Fathers believed in; freedom, not oppression; individual rights vs state control. We need to choose representatives who want to build America not destroy her. We definitely need to find individual willing to unselfishly serve the needs of the people, not their own elite, self-centered desires.
Accountability Is Hard But Not Impossible
To their benefit and our demise, American politicians have made it so convoluted and complicated for us, their constituents, to follow their actions and records. And without that, it’s more difficult to hold them accountable. Because of the complexities, many people have just given up any hope of resurrecting American freedom and individualism. Many voters think that their votes really do not count; but they do. So instead of pushing back and speaking out (with their vote), many ignore what their representatives are doing on their behalf (which is selling them out), and just hope that things get better.
Nations crumble when its citizens fall asleep, awakening only after the nation has already been sold out. So please do not think your vote does not count, it does. Do not sit at home for the 2016 election and hope things get better.
Do Your Homework
Be vigilant, elect your representatives in the 2016 elections based on their records, not their charming commercial ads. Don’t fall for the same lies and propaganda always put out by left leaning liberal candidates (democrat and RINO). They cannot be honest, because then they would not get elected. Know the truth. Understand the difference between a candidate who just walks the walk,talks the talk and someone who really can do what’s right for America and our future.
