We are skipping along on the path to communism with a short stop at socialism unless we do something to change it but the will isn’t there to change it.
Communists hide behind the more acceptable “Progressive” label which includes other sorted extremist ideologies and they have taken over the Democratic Party.
This is the new America. Instead of freedom, we choose security. Instead of self-reliance, we’ve opened our arms to Big Government. There is a seduction to always doing the right thing because it’s easy. It’s easy to love the earth, help the world’s poor, and be welcoming to everyone with other peoples’ money. We all just travel along this statist road thinking nothing will change our privileged lifestyle.
Americans even love that bare-chested leader of Russia next to our weak-kneed president. The allure is too much.
Communism is sexy!
Bernie Sanders, a devout Communist and an angry old one at that, has hidden behind the more euphemistic “Socialist” label for years but anyone paying attention knows what he is. He wants to control and nationalize everything. He decided to ditch the communist title years ago to get elected. Recently, he said he prefers to be called a progressive and it’s undoubtedly to get elected. Just look at his platform – it’s communism.
It saves me a lot of writing time to just post two quotes by Ayn Rand.
The first: “The difference between a welfare state and a totalitarian state is a matter of time.” Barack has built a much larger welfare state than the one we had. We have far more people on welfare and food stamps and we invite foreigners in for the welfare benefits. There are more than 96 million Americans out of work and the jobs available are going from higher level jobs to menial and part-time jobs with more and more leftists demanding they be paid “living wages” for low-level jobs.
The second quote: “There is no difference between Communism and Socialism except in the same ultimate end: Communism proposes to enslave men by force, Socialism by the vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide.”
Leftists will fight viciously to protect the false narrative that they are different and Socialism is acceptable. It’s how they win over converts. The populist message which rails against the corrupt crony corporatists and politicians cinches it.
In reality, there is little difference. Socialism, as Marx said, is the path to Communism.
We know how these ideologies have destroyed nations and ended up in the slaughter of hundreds of millions and we see what it has done to countries like Venezuela, Argentina, and Cuba. Why would we do it again? Capitalism isn’t perfect, but not because of Capitalism, because of the way big government has turned it into a book of regulations and cronyism. It needs fixing but not by something which will take away our freedoms.
Communism is why we have massive illegal immigration and it is the real reason Obama wants hundred of thousands of refugees who have values antithetical to ours.
Barack Obama was very clear about what he was from day one when he said he’d fundamentally transform us and then proceeded to give his agencies the power to legislate. He was clear when he passed guidance memos, sent out issuances, and posted executive orders that had the force of law while he ignored Congress, belittled the powers of the states and the courts. If you have ever looked at the George Soros website, The Center for American Progress, you will find the blueprint for everything Obama has done.
His former aide Anita Dunn said her favorite people to quote from was Mao tse-Tung, a madman who murdered more people than Hitler. Former White House spokesperson Jay Carney has Communist posters hanging all over his kitchen, Rev. Wright is a Marxist, Obama’s family are Communists, his mentor was a Communist, he hung around with radicals, he sympathizes with Communists and Fascists and wants to diminish America’s power in the world and is. Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod, and VanJones are immersed in Communist ideology and had Communist families.
What do people think is going on?
Couple the current assault by the president with our weak Congress. Some Republicans are liberals, some are very weak, and most just want to go along to get along and get re-elected. Some Republicans don’t seem to understand what’s going on. Don’t think that because someone gets elected that they are intelligent or that they aren’t simply naïve.
If you want to know what life will be like under Communism, just watch New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. He’s a Communist and is gradually destroying New York City. He’s put in place a plan to nationalize police, starting with New York City, he’s “greening” it to death, and has attempted to regulate anything that exists. He tried to destroy Uber, which I can tell you from personal experience is terrific!
He’s now giving free healthcare to illegal immigrants and is welcoming as many in as possible – those are votes him. His line that it’s the right and kind thing to do pales in comparison to the rights of the taxpayers he’s fleecing and the services that will be taken from citizens and lawful residents.
Non-citizens will soon vote, solidifying Communist New York City.
His latest is to insist we need a law banning the “commingling of indoor and outdoor air” according to the New York Times.
What that means is storekeeps who leave their doors open for any length of time while the a/c is on, allowing their a/c to hit the street, will be fined $250 for the first offense and up to $1,000 for any real serious door-left-open offense such as utilizing a doorstop.
De Blasio’s tweet announcing it was followed up by this: “I know I’m not the only one who has walked past open doors to feel a blast of cold air pouring out. We don’t need to be cooling our sidewalks! By requiring businesses to simply close the door, this bill is a win on multiple fronts, and is a small, but important part of our efforts to fight climate change.”
The bill signed by de Blasio updates Local Law 38 of 2008, which already requires stores that are 4,000 square feet or larger, or part of a chain of five or more stores in New York City, to keep their doors closed when an air conditioner or central cooling system is running. The new legislation removes the size requirement, making this law applicable to businesses of any size.
Totalitarians who think they can tell us what to do always go further and further in their demands and their use of force. Fines and imprisonment are force.
Leftists are saying we must get over our addiction to a/c but you can be sure the elite won’t stop their use of it. That’s how this works. Every once in a while you get a legitimate Communist like the late singer Pete Seger who lives in a cabin in the woods but it’s rare indeed and, honestly, I don’t want to go along with the leftists who call themselves progressives but only talk of bringing us back to the past.
