I’m old enough to remember when the words socialism and communism were regarded as evil in the United states. The freedoms and capitalism our country was founded on were to be guarded and protected above everything else.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb deciding what to have for dinner. Liberty is a well-armed lamb. – Benjamin Franklin
Since I don’t have children, I’m not up to speed on what is being taught in the school system, but it’s my suspicion that history lessons are not at the top of the list… am I right? A couple of encounters with the youth of Wichita, Kansas has shown me that they are not well-rounded in their knowledge of history. People, if we don’t know where we came from and learn from past mistakes – we are surely bound to repeat them!
The socialist candidate makes it all sound so appealing, doesn’t he? He’s going to GIVE some folks everything at no cost – well, isn’t that special??? Guess what… A college education will still cost somebody – do they care about that? Somebody’s taxes will go sky-high through the roof to GIVE others everything for free. Does that matter? Raising taxes by as much as 98% which is just crazy… to GIVE a college education to another.
There is something in the capitalist world that accomplishes the same thing – they’re called SCHOLARSHIPS. There are scholarships by the truckload that yes, have to be EARNED, but if you want a healthy chunk of your college education paid for – that’s possible in a capitalist nation! No, nobody is going to give you a free lunch – because as my mother always told me – there’s no such thing as a FREE lunch. Somebody is going to pay for the lunch – please remember that.
I love America, I love my freedom AND I want to uphold our precious CONSTITUTION. Never in the history of this country has there been a socialist running for president. I don’t want to feel the Bern… our country would soon feel the burn from the Bern. The insane part is that he’s not even a registered democrat… huh??? How does that happen???
Look, I’m just asking that you have all the facts about Socialism before you vote. As always, it’s my prayer that we are less red, less blue – and blend into a united purple as we kneel in prayer before our GOD to seek His face and turn from our wicked ways – only then will our sin-sick nation be supernaturally healed.
Be an informed voter. Please read about the practice of SOCIALISM in other countries and pray in these last days before the election. 🙂
