Sen. Rand Paul is warning Americans that the Democratic Socialism embraced by Bernie Sanders can lead to a government that will “exterminate” people who step out of line.
“I’ve been trying to point out — I’m on a lot of college campuses, we have a big following on college campuses — there’s nothing sexy and there’s nothing cool about socialism,” Paul said in response to a question about Sanders.
“What there is, is the implied force that goes with taking away your choice,” Paul (R-Ky.) said on The Glenn Beck Program.
“Only the state tells you what you can do, it’s the most anti-choice economic system,” Paul said. “If you don’t listen, they fine you. If you don’t pay the fine, they imprison you. If you will not listen, ultimately, what has happened in history, people get mad when I say this, but they exterminate you. That’s what happened under Stalin.”
Tens of millions, perhaps more, of deaths can be attributed to Stalin’s harsh Socialist rule.
Democratic Socialism is not different.
“People say, ‘Oh no no, he wants democratic Socialism.’ The problem is, a majority can be just as bad as one single authoritarian and that’s why we shouldn’t allow any of our rights to be subject to a majority.”
No majority should ever be able to take your rights away, Paul said.
