Are We Becoming The United Socialist States Of America?

C hurchil on socialaism

“We better wake up one and all or our constitution is going to fall. We’ll no longer be the United States we’ll be the U.S.S.of A (the United Socialist States of America)—Rivoli Revue 2009.

“One day we are going to wake up and find that like Norman Thomas said, we’ll have socialism”–Ronald Reagan.

I remember when the Soviet Union fell I said, “Watch it fall there and rise here.” That’s just what seems to be happening here now. In the old Soviet Union, they had only one news source and that was a huge propaganda paper called Pravda.  It only told how great Russia was and didn’t allow much from the outside.  Russia was then known as the U.S.S.R (The Union of Soviet Socialist Republic).

The late talk show host Bob Grant once told me when I called into his show how he visited Russia and in every hotel and restaurant there were pamphlets around in English telling how bad America was and we should leave the poor Vietnamese people alone”  Russia had electronic interference around it so outside news sources couldn’t get in. After a while, our government agencies were able to break through these sources and were able to broadcast about the value of freedom to the Russian people.

Today our liberal media is fast becoming like the old Pravda. They just broadcast one side, and censor or deny anything counter to their ideas. The vast TV news stations are all one sided like ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and MSNBC. FOX used to be a good alternative station, but they too are getting more and more liberal since the more liberal Murdoch brothers have taken over from there liberal father and becoming just like the other stations. They all supported Hillary and their wives worked for Hillary and bashed Trump who is all for the people. If anyone counters a liberal idea they are branded as racist, sexist, homophobe, Nazi or Islamaphobe to shut them up,

In recent polls, 4 out of 10 people support socialism which is communism’s little brother. They don’t realize that socialism has failed everywhere it’s been tried.

The problem is that our kids have not been taught much in school that would inform them what socialism is and communism. They have no idea that it will destroy this country as all they hear is ‘FREE STUFF”. They are much dummied down about all of this as well as history of the world and history of this country and how we became the free and great country that we have. They are not being told anything that would make them patriots. They are bombarded with the bad social behavior the radicals want them to react too. This has been a long and planned doctrine that our kids have been taught for years. Just look, the teachers etc are mostly liberals. Lots of kids today have no idea about anything we stand for and how we fought to protect our wonderful country. They should ask why everyone seems to want to sneak in here by droves. Why would they do that if this country was so darn bad? We all have allowed this to happen. The entire school system should be revamped and go back to years before all this social influence has brainwashed them. Our test scores are not very high as they used to be. Sad but true.

Young millennials mostly favor socialism and are misguided by the attraction of everything being free, free education, free housing, free Medicare for everyone, free hospitalization, free everything and they fall for it.

The Democratic Party’s socialistic economic initiatives are taking root, especially among millennials. They’re woefully uneducated on its tenets and the devastation it has brought hundreds of millions in history. They’re seduced by lofty yet unrealistic promises and lured by charismatic politicians often going unchallenged by the sympathetic anti-Trump media. And with socialism comes totalitarianism. You can’t have one without the other because force is the only way the elite can stay on top.

A current example is their “Green New Deal”:

  1. Full employment, and if you dislike your job you depart and the government gets you another.
    2. You cannot be fired.
    3. Free health care.
    4. Free tuition from pre-K through college.
    5. Affordable housing for all with rent control and inability to be evicted! This will fix “climate problems” and income inequalities, they promise.

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the party’s new “star” and a symbol and proponent of democratic socialism. She told “60 Minutes” she was a “radical”; “advocated free health care for everyone”; and proposed a “top tax rate of 70 percent like the U.K. (falsehood – it’s 45 percent), Finland or Sweden” (miniscule and easily manageable populations of 5 and 10 million compared to our 350 million). Our already $22 trillion debt would quickly explode from this delusional scheme, devastating millions, collapse our economy and result in rioting like in Venezuela.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has, on multiple occasions, demonstrated her lack of understanding finances and the economy. Like most radical, far-left progressives, she believes that taxing wealthy people into oblivion will solve all problems and lift people out of poverty.

What she fails to realize is that making rich people poor will not make poor people rich. Moreover, many rich people are going to take steps to protect their wealth and rightfully so. There’s only so much money which one can garner from increasing taxes on wealthy Americans. Contrary to popular leftist beliefs, taxing top earners into oblivion will not successfully fund all the government programs which radical progressives want.

Here are 21 areas that reveal The Democratic Party positions:

1.Radical redistribution of wealth;
2. Aggressive climate change initiatives;
3. Complete takeover of health care by federal government plus inclusion of all illegal immigrants;
4. Open immigration policy with full acceptance of all children and relatives; no border walls, entrance requirements, E-verify or penalties for those refusing deportation; disregarding the rule of law and full support for “sanctuary cities”; neglecting national security and allowing George Soros funded anarchy to “crash” our immigration system;
5. Government control over corporate profits;
6. Progressive taxes on the upper middle class and above;
7. Legalization of recreational marijuana;
8. Implementation of comprehensive LGBTQ agenda – including indoctrination of children in schools, transgender initiatives, gender reassignment surgery and removal of any “sexual discrimination” in the workplace and schools, disregarding conscience objections;
9. Taxpayer-financed abortion-on-demand until birth with full-funding of Planned Parenthood;
10. Major defense spending cuts with money redistributed to entitlements;
11. Comprehensive gun control;
12. Liberal, not originalist, judges on the Supreme Court and federal courts;
13. Alignment and support for radical feminist agenda and marches;
14. Increased censorship of “hateful” conservative thought on social media;
15. Liberalized voting standards to include fraudulent practices and everyone the party deems as “disenfranchised”;
16. Partnership with Palestinians;
17. Alignment with United Nations and European Union transnationalism initiatives promoting “One World” globalism, rather than nationalism with international cooperation;
18. Euthanasia/physician-assisted suicide;
19. Taxpayer-funded child-care and college tuition;
20. Elimination  of the Electoral College; and
21. Re-establishing the Iranian “nuclear deal” alongside increased protection for Islamic “rights” in America and abroad at the expense of Israel’s safety.

Any person who believes in these policies must be insane. Do you think that people who believe there are no genders are sane, that believe that illegals are not law breakers are sane, you think that people who believe in the NWO are sane, you believe that leftists are sane, do you believe people who believe that Islam is a religion of peace are sane, people that believe that guns kill people but people have nothing to do with it are sane – ask any psychiatrist and they’ll tell you these people are insane, and they know exactly what they are doing – what they don’t understand is what the outcome will be from their insanity!

America was founded on freedom and the right of every individual to pursue their own dreams. Socialism, by contrast, makes everyone into a slave of the state.

Socialism’s goal — total equality of outcome — is impossible without entrusting the state with totalitarian powers to reshape society.

Socialist philosophy is atheist and anti-family at its core. According to socialist philosophers, basic social structures like the church and the family are oppressive and need to be abolished.

Socialism is also plain bad economics. Centrally planned economies aren’t flexible enough to respond to the ups and downs of the market.

It’s not a surprise then that every example of a socialist society that has ever been tried has turned out to be a dismal failure. Millions died in Soviet Russia and Mao’s China because of socialism’s backward economics principles.

Everything about socialism is backward, and it ends up leaving citizens less free than they began. Socialism promises paradise on earth, but what actually happens is that a small bureaucratic elite takes control of the economy and oppresses the vast majority of the citizens, who become serfs to the government.
