Democratic socialism (aka communism) is sweeping the nation especially among young people who believe they are doing “what’s right”. However, many are not aware socialism was introduced in the early 19th century within utopian communities such as the Shakers.
It was embraced by individualist anarchists like Josiah Warren and his mentor Robert Owens, a Welch, who sponsored and promoted utopian communities including one, in of all places, (New Harmony) Indiana. Then there were the labor activists who were mostly British, German, or Jewish immigrants who founded the Socialist Labor Party in 1877; with many of their decedents perpetrating the same ideology. And we see these people in today’s labor unions such as the NEA, SEIU, Teamsters, and so on. An enormous part of the problem came via the vast number of European immigrants after America’s founding and after reconstruction. The lack of assimilation from those immigrants to American culture.
By 1901, the Socialist Party of America was born. The U.S. has been dealing with socialism in our midst for (over) a century. Because of our founding document known as the Constitution, and some then-principled statesmen in Washington, DC, we were able to thwart off the destructive effects of socialism and the fruit of its poisonous tree. That is until President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1945, a Democrat, enacted Social Security Act. This was for all accounts the beginning of the downfall of our Republic as it was intended under the Constitution of the United States, circa 1776. Today Democratic Socialist of America (DSA), a 501(c)(3), founded by Michael Harrington is alive and well and making great strides in this take over of the United States of America.
The question begs, do Americans really understand what socialism is really about?
America had many years of growth, development and prosperity post-WWII, and if the act would have been repealed as it was supposed to be, once it reached its sunset, we would probably all be in a better place today.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 people 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 the Social Security monstrosity, we then also enacted a Medicaid, welfare, food stamp program, along with other so-called social services which only serves socialists. There have been billions of dollars in fraud in those programs since its inception, billions of dollars in fraud. Americans have allowed it. I don’t blame the people who take advantage of and cheat the system as many do, that’s who those people are. I can’t say I 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 die in office like the so-called Lion of the Senate, Ted Kennedy on the democrat side. 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. The lifers as I call them only pretend to be representatives of the Constitution but once they get in office and the power starts to show its glamour, they are hooked. Among these well-meaning representatives, are the Socialists. These people 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, like it or not.
People who are weak and feeble minded willingly cheer Bernie Sanders, 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 countries speech and weapons are the two rights taken from citizens before the conform part of socialism can be finalized. And you have Americans who allow themselves to be shut down, and for their gun rights to be dictated to by the same people who are working towards transforming America from a free society to a socialist hellhole. It’s absolute insanity.
Read Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals, this is the bible of the leftist movement that is funded by globalist such as George Soros, but also includes many members of Congress, lobbyist, and yes even Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. 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 and our American culture. By the thousands Hondurans traveled through Mexico and arrive at our borders, bringing with them disease, drugs, illiteracy, and who knows what else. Why wouldn’t they migrate to a country that is more in kind with their culture? Why not stay in Mexico? Actually, why not fight for your own homeland? Because that is not the point. These are not poor migrant workers, these are people being brought here to overwhelm our already ailing system. And like sheep, we allow it. They are winning because we are letting them. Every single American who cares about this county should contact their representative and tell them enough. Find out when your representative is in town and attend the town halls. We can win this, we are making strides. Let’s not continue being complacent.
I can tell you that not voting for strong Constitutional Conservatives because of your party affiliation or social issues stances is ludicrous. We have to think outside the party box that we have been forced to check R or D. No! This is why Donald Trump won the election. We are tired of the same ole same ole socialist garbage. We have paid enough. Too many people are living on our dime, doing nothing, contributing nothing. And that’s the point of socialism. It takes root when lazy and weak-minded people, no longer value their freedom; until of course they end up at the bottom of the pit they dug for themselves, and with the U.S. government lording over Americans like a perpetual dark cloud.
Do Americans really understand what socialism is about? The answer is no.
