VIEWPOINT: Democrats are ‘leaning toward socialism’
Reader: Vote against socialism
Socialism…in America? The Democrats have a crisis situation. Their party no longer has anything to identify with, so they are leaning toward socialism. If that thought repulses and is revolting to you, you are not alone. Many college students, spoon-fed leftist garbage from their college professors, go along with that. They are taught now to be intolerant of anything they do not agree with.
More pathetic than that is there are Democrats in Congress who also are going along with this nonsense. They call themselves “socialist democrats,” just a hair away from being communists. They are scraping the bottom of the barrel because they are desperate to get back into power. They have no other new ideas, no platform. Even the middle class, who they have courted for years, have caught onto their deception and lies.
In a nutshell, socialism means that they will take most or all of your income and redistribute that for the benefit of those who do not make as much. The end result is everyone is equally poor. But don’t worry, big government will take care of you. Free tuition, free housing and free healthcare. All of those “freebies” come at a very high price, but they really do not talk about that. Think Cuba, think Venezuela, and what paradises those places are. Forget about that nasty capitalism, you know, the people who built America and provided millions of jobs. Forget about free enterprise and individual achievement. No more American dream, we all have to be equal. What the socialists avoid talking about is where all the trillions of dollars will come from to pay for all that.
Are the illegals coming over our borders because they want socialism? No, they want to enjoy the freedoms that America offers, and has offered for 240 years. What have the Democrats accomplished in the past 18 months? Absolutely nothing, not a single piece of legislation has been passed, due to their obsession with getting trump and their obstruction. Their values are skewered, but they do no mind continuing to accept a fine salary courtesy of the taxpayer, even though they do nothing to earn that. They continue to desperately try to find some Trump/Russian collusion, where there is none, but ignore the fact that there is plenty of direct evidence that the Clintons and their mafia were in that collusion.
So, Republicans, Conservatives, people who care about America and where the Democrats want to take it, we need to counter the Democrats’ plan for a “Blue Wave,” with a “Red Wave” of our own. Vote to keep America free from socialism. Vote common sense, patriotism. And yes, all of us “deplorable” who helped to keep the criminal Clintons from once again disgracing the White House, we are needed. Vote to keep socialism the hell out of America!
