Socialism Election Update 2018

Sonny and Cher said it decades ago and it still resonates: The beat goes on. The irritating, annoying drum beat of socialism: and it continues with the denial of all who protest in its favor without benefit of facts, experience or reason.

As this year’s mid term elections loom closer, this short follow up is just a reminder, a warning, of the new mantra – and the direction – of the left, except they choose to call it “democratic socialism.” As if that’s really any different than the controlling, debilitating, dangerous form of beneficial freedom they expound to the masses: equality.

Bernie brought it to the forefront as an acceptable alternative to our republic and the two parties which dominate its government. He made it cool to be, and support, a socialist. He started the landslide of acceptability of a form of economics/government that his followers haven’t a diddly clue of what it really means. And now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has picked up the mace of misguidance to lead the parade of liberal lemmings.

For those bereft of facts, here’s a quick look at a couple reminders of the “good stuff” they characterize as nice.

1- NO country has EVER succeeded under Socialism – NONE.
2- 100,000,000 people were murdered under the banner of Socialism in the 20th century.
3-  It doesn’t reward people for being entrepreneurial and competitive, an opposition to the true human spirit to excel and succeed.
4- The government set up to represent and benefit the masses may well abuse its position and claim power for itself.
5- From each according to his ability, to each according to his need – except when people’s ability becomes nill, zip, zero and nada.

either do some basic research or buy a plane ticket south and look at Socialism in its raw state of despair – Venezuela.

The educational value would be worth more in life than all the college degrees they’d earn, for it would change and better their lives to know the truth.

They would find people waiting for hours in lines for food, only to find disappointment that the food, the paper goods, the essential staples of even a simple life – are all gone. Disappeared in a cloud of desperation.

The basics of life not to be found for people who have lived decades in a country once wealthy and successful, or those who entered life and a future of failure and poverty only months before.

This is not what God intended for people, and yet a failed government and system of economics produces exactly this for those anxious and intent to accept it.

 

People fill their days, not with productive endevours, but are relegated to the humbling tasks of foraging for their fundamental food in the trash heaps which increasingly line the streets and alleys.

Life is not productive. It’s not easy. It’s not fun or relaxing. It’s a daily struggle just to survive for the facts are evident and overwhelming as to the result of socialism in Venezuela.

Life in every corner of the country is the same, growing evidence of a destructive regime. Make a note:

 

1- Hospitals are overrun as disease spreads on the wind.
2- Much needed medications are nonexistent.
3- Children are left at orphanages because their parents can’t feed them.
4-The military is in virtual breakdown down with desertions as rations disappear.
5-Utilities work very little if at all so water, sewer, power…well, just live without them for they’re not to be found.

One result? Imagine if in America 33,000,000 citizens just left the country. That’s in essence the result in Venezuela. 10% of the country who had the means has left. And those who are left demonstrate for their rights – as though anyone is watching and heeding their pleas.

The sign says: “Why do the Venezuelans protest? Insecurity, injustice, shortages, censorship, violence, corruption. Protesting is not a crime. Is a right”.

The sign expresses the desire of a forgotten and abused populus that might live till tomorrow – or might not depending on the garbage they find to eat and the used needles they recover from street gutters for what little medication they may have scrounged.

And without being flippant, in America right now are we seeing insecurity? Unequal or injustice? Censorship, violence and corruption? America is a strong country but violence from the well financed socialist left is growing with blatancy and dangerous intent. Are we not overwrought with corrupt officials running their own government in the dark halls of Congress and beyond?

And the current American reality?

A recent Gallup poll reports:

  • 57% of Democrats look favorably on Socialism, but
  • 47% of Democrats look favorably on Capitalism
  • Univ of Michigan teaches Capitalism should be overthrown
  • Open Syllabus Project says the most assigned economist in US colleges: Karl Marx

Police in Berkeley, Oregon and elsewhere have been given their stand down orders so as not to interfere with “socially organized” protesters so as not to “inflame them” or silence their right to protest.

Yes, Socialism is a mental, physical and cultural disease. A cancer growing wildly through the uneducated masses donning bandanas, black shirts and night sticks in order to get theirs, and led by self serving monarchs of majestic mischief.

Will America go socialist? As Justin Bieber sang:

Lyrics
“I will never say never! (I will fight)
I will fight till forever! (Make it right)
Whenever you knock me down
I will not stay on the ground”

If antifa and socialists, leftists and fascist radicals are willing to fight and be true to their misguided ways… are we willing to fight any less for our rights and freedoms?

Those who have a real interest in America and yes, their own futures as healthy, successful, happy individuals need to wake up and smell what they’re really wanting – because it smells more like the tent conclaves of those cities and states whose goal is to fight our way of life rather than better it.

When you vote this November, know the person you’re voting for and ask: “do they have your best interests at heart… or their own?” And “are they socialist, openly or in disguise?”

Your comments below will be answered and I thank you.

Do Not Read This – NOT For Public Release

Why? Because this contains information, facts, tactics that liberals don’t want revealed. Deep rooted strategies that involve treason, sedition, even the death of patriots rather than truthful, productive and meaningful interactions of worth and value. Do I lie? How many needed and respected law enforcement officials have been ambushed and killed? How many politically involved opponents or citizens attacked, murdered in the name of radical leftist views. How many lives destroyed for the sake of recusant, partisan agendas?

Liberals operate in the shadows of deceit. They hide under cover of confusion, accusations and false narratives in order to bind together those who hate and wish to destroy. Their long history and secrets obscured and concealed to aid in the completion of their calamitous mandate. Many have ranted and rallied about impeachment but warn their candidates not to mention it for the truthful fear of their intentions’ damage to their campaigns.

The progression of America’s decline was decidedly slowed with the election of Donald J. Trump. However, with the election of Hillary Clinton, the future of America, our laws, our safety, economy and our governance as a free and independent country could well have continued to be in jeopardy.

SOCIALISTS INVADING AMERICA?  GOING MAINSTREAM?

During the last 8 years in particular, we’ve seen our rights take wing on birds away during hunting season, and heard our slide into the dark abyss of socialism resound like the scratch of rat claws in the stone walls of our existence.

Used with permission of the artist

Liberal leaders correlate lies with truth, and their twisted agendas with reasonable policies, and merge their efforts in order to affect a new America NOT  envisioned by our founding fathers.  The Democratic party of your fathers and grandfathers is not the party of today’s liberalized, radicalized politicians.

The Democrats have morphed into Democratic Socialism.
The Democratic Socialists are moving toward Progressivism.
Progressives are slowly but systematically moving toward Marxist Socialism
Full Socialists are on their march to Communism.

The likelihood that young people become the embodiment of their influences is reasonable and significant. It’s happened over time, was furthered during the radical 60’s and continues today supported by the likes of Soros and others who encourage a violent, destructive, anti-American defiance. Intransigence designed to eradicate freedom.

The more openly, full on attack on America was furthered with the election of B. Hussein Obama, whose upbringing was filtered and honed through the teachings of Saul Alinski, and calamitous beliefs of Cloward and Piven. His understanding of life, his views of oppression and exercising government will and influence on the people came, in part, from a Communist sympathizer known as Frank Marshall Davis; a subject of FBI interest and investigation for 19 years.

The line separating opposition views is blurred, yet distinct. Davis wrote: ““I worked with all kinds of groups.  I made no distinction between those labeled Communist, Socialist or merely liberal.” But the FBI record of Davis contains what is reported to be his Communist Party identification number: #47544 (obtained from a “highly confidential source”).

Obama’s has his own involvement with the insurgent Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), a Socialist organization moving in a revolutionary Marxist direction. In the 60’s, SDS was joined by the Progressive Labor Party (PLP), a self-styled Marxist-Leninist-Maoist party, dedicated to implementing communist ideology. In January, 1996, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic Party and even to American capitalism.

Are Socialists invading America? The Socialist presence was openly displayed with the campaign of Bernie Sanders. A political wannabe that did virtually nothing and collected no steady paycheck till he was 40. At that time being elected mayor of a VT town and proudly proclaiming he was the “only Socialist Mayor in the United States,” his socialistic “everything free for everyone” beliefs resonated with America’s youth who supported him from the basements of their parents’ homes during 2016.

And again, Socialism is proudly displayed as a badge of honor, a placard of qualification from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, A NYC candidate for Congress under the banner of Socialism. A true believer and anti-American, anti-capitalist wanting to give everything free to anyone sitting on their ass in the park with their hands outstretched to receive the unearned freebies of society.

There was this from Ocasio-Cortez: “Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world.” Actually, capitalism has pretty much always existed. When Jesus chased the money changers from the temple, they weren’t there giving money away. People have been trading since there was something to trade. “The market economy, contrary to what you might have heard, has existed since the caves,” writes Deirdre McCloskey in “Bourgeois Dignity.”

Ocasio-Cortez summarizes the principle of the Democratic Socialists of America, of which she is a member: “No person in America should be too poor to live.” And her big complaint on the economy? She credits [or blames] the low unemployment figures because… “Well, unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs.” No. That would make sense if the unemployment rate were calculated by asking businesses whether their jobs were filled. But instead BLS uses the household survey, which asks people whether they have a job. The answer is “yes” whether you work one job or ten.

My point in all this and my warning…if you love America, if you fear for her future, know that these people vehemently believe and bolster their destructive rhetoric. They loudly proclaim factless rants, for their game plan is not based on patriotism and truth. Their goals are not good for America and Americans. They want only societal elements aimed at increasing their own voter base, their own power position, their own enriched futures as ruling tyrants and dictators.

The ever-growing presence of socialistic endeavors is evidenced on our political landscape by the screaming, demanding masses yearning to breathe free, eat free, live free and to be free to do whatever, whenever, wherever for personal reasons free from consequences.

Ask yourself… Are these the goals to improve and protect America? Or a select few and for what reasoning? Goals such as:

  • Eliminate borders opening our country to anyone and everyone regardless of the past or plans for their crime-filled futures.
  • Eliminate any immigration barriers thereby allowing a lifelong flood of Democratic/Socialistic voters eliminating the opposition party (conservatives).
  • Eliminate ICE, the agency, not mandated to separate families, but to seek and hunt down and deport those who choose to do us harm. (ICE stats
  • Giving sanctuary to criminal elements in the name of “social justice” and “equality” at the expense, and peril, of society.
  • Raise taxes even more on those who, while creating wealth for themselves, also create jobs and wealth for millions more.
  • Give away everything as an entitlement like healthcare, education, housing, food, public services…all ultimately paid for by those who have something left of their own hard earned money; till they run out of money to support the whining masses.
  • Hand out justice not based on the law, but by whatever social, economic or political class you align yourself with.
  • They promote the tenets of Socialism for the collective good, not as a reward to those who actually work hard and produce.
  • The diminishment of privacy both in private lives and in surreptitious operations of the government.

The main goal of a socialist system is to shift the means of production from private hands, or to regulate it, by the power and authority of the “community.” Socialism espouses the common good and access to all services and resources by ALL citizens. In an archetypal socialistic society everyone is equal; all have equal voice and equal access. This is not to say that there are no different economic classes or groups, just that all pay according to their ability so that all can share equally (seems some are more equal than others). Just remember Obama’s prime job… Community Organizer.

Or as Karl Marx said: “In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor, and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished; after labor has become not only a means of life but life’s prime want; after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual, and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly—only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs,

Be aware, for as your “ability” to contribute increases due to your own hard work and worth, the “needs” of the masses will demand them and the government or community will gladly take them. Doubt my warning? Here’s the bombshell:  of those queried, four out of 10 adults said they preferred socialism to capitalism and some cities and states are offering “guaranteed” incomes to attract residents.

This is an alert, a wake up call, a warning to what’s happening right under our own allegorical and patriotic noses. This is a revelation of the revolution to come; goals and potential harm to be caused to us all should we not be aware enough, not prepared enough to keep our country as it was designed.

As a writer, I find history, past and yet to come, as fascinating endeavors and yet would be more interested in researching and documenting more positive things. But as long as we live in our current times, the awareness of conditions and changes to our well conceived, solidly founded republic need to be portrayed on the pages of as many websites and publications as possible. Pass these words to your friends and join the informed resistance of the onslaught against us.
