One has to wonder why more and more people are clinging onto this dangerous agenda, but when you think about it, it most certainly can give you a headache. Why? When has socialism really ever worked? Sure it’s worked for some people(the socialists), but as a whole it has never been successful.
First off, Socialism and Communism are basically the same ideology. Socialists and Communists will argue against that until their heads explode. I have not yet met a single person who has been able to prove otherwise, it is what it is. Communism is just an extreme version of Socialism, there are no major differences at all. In fact, the Soviet Union called itself the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) from 1922-1991. The Soviet Union considered itself Communist, but as you can see, they were both because they are mostly the same ideology. Both are forced on everyone, there’s nothing free about that. But it seems when these folks hear the word “free”, they start salivating, some even foaming at the mouth like a rabid dog. It looks to me that all they care about is “free” stuff, not FREEDOM. Those are totally different things, it’s not rocket science. Nothing is free, someone is paying for it. With this type of system others are being forced to give up money to help others who may not be as successful.
Now we all remember that interview with that Hollywood clown Russell Brand and how he believes we should all embrace socialism. Ever since then, I have seen more and more people attaching themselves to this ideology. It looks like Hollywood is doing its job! Socialism calls for “redistributing the wealth” by taking from the “rich” to give to the poor. A modern-day Robin Hood they say. Well folks, Robin Hood was a thief and I’m not sure why anyone would ever think it’s alright to steal from others just because they are rich. Sure, there are some rich scumbags on this planet, but not all of them are. Even taking that into account, stealing money from wealthy people to redistribute to the poor people is wrong. Socialism if forced, there’s no way around that. How any socialist can go around talking about their “freedoms” being taken away while practicing their dangerous agenda is beyond me. It takes away an individual’s rights and responsibilities and passes them off to the State. We’re going backwards here, folks! Hello? Is there anybody in there?
Now let’s move to taxes. When someone busts their ass their entire life and builds a company, put their blood, sweat, and tears into it and turns a good profit, why should they be punished? Why should others get their earnings? They shouldn’t. When you take money from the more successful people it creates less successful people and it encourages people to be failures. So when there are more people in need of help from the State, the more they tax others? Good grief! This means that the wealth gets concentrated into fewer hands, and this is why you see such a monopoly on the money as it is. The economy slows down, enough that it can’t produce enough tax revenue to stay intact. How do you think the Soviet Union crumbled? Socialism uses taxation to promote economic egalitarianism and one of the goals in The Communist Manifesto is the abolishing of “private property”. This is what we are seeing right now in the United States. It’s been going on for a long time and it’s only getting worse. You cannot implement this system and expect true liberty, it will never happen. In fact, you are only making it harder for the people who want true freedom and liberty, and it’s pissing people off, including me.
Let’s move onto parental rights. You need to understand that socialism allows the State to control education. This means parents have no say in the education system. Your best bet is to home school your children, but when parents are busting their butts to make ends meet, that means they have to put more time into work. That means it’s nearly impossible to home school your children. Why would a parent want the State to control this? To me that is absurd! The curriculum the public schools teach is exactly what the State itself wants to teach them, how is that not dangerous? That is exactly the type of brainwashing a lot of us fight against, yet we have these people claiming they want their liberty. Like my comparison to the word “free” to freedom, liberty is not “liberal”, stop making that connection!
“How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.” -Ronald Reagan
The above quote is so true. Whether you liked him or not, he is correct. I always wonder how many communists and socialists have picked up a book like The Communist Manifesto and actually read it. I have, and that’s a big part of why I’m knowledgeable on this subject. What’s that saying a lot of us say? Know your enemy. Well I know my enemy. Do you? If you’re a socialist, I can assure you, with me wanting my freedom and liberty, that puts me in that enemy spot, but it doesn’t have to be that way. You could stop pushing your government coercion on me and others who do not want anything to do with it, or you can continue to blindly push this agenda and destroy this country even more. You do have to make a decision though and I suggest you get on the right side of history before it’s too late.
