“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.” – President Ronald Reagan
On a Sunday, in October of 2008, outside of Toledo, Ohio, Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Hussein Obama met a plumber named Joe Wurzelbacher. Joe, who owned his own plumbing company, dared to ask Obama about his proposed tax hikes. In fact, he told Obama that he did not want to pay higher taxes, he was already paying enough. Obama told him,
Now, I respect the disagreement. I just want you to be clear – it’s not that I want to punish your success – I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you – that they’ve got a chance at success too.”
…I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.
Obama was talking about the part of Marxist Theory known as “Socialism”.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, Socialism is
- any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
- a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
- a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done
By the way, Socialism is the step before Communism, according to Marxist Theory.
If you listen to the Democrat Elite, “Socialism” is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
The problem is the historical fact that Socialism has never worked in any country which has installed it as a form of government.
For example, speaking of sliced bread, take the example of Venezuela, a country which has been “sharing the wealth” for decades.
Jean Pierre Planchart, a year old, has the drawn face of an old man and a cry that is little more than a whimper. His ribs show through his skin. He weighs just 11 pounds.His mother, Maria Planchart, tried to feed him what she could find combing through the trash—scraps of chicken or potato. She finally took him to a hospital in Caracas, where she prays a rice-milk concoction keeps her son alive.
“I watched him sleep and sleep, getting weaker, all the time losing weight,” said Ms. Planchart, 34 years old. “I never thought I’d see Venezuela like this.”
Her country was once Latin America’s richest, producing food for export. Venezuela now can’t grow enough to feed its own people in an economy hobbled by the nationalization of private farms, and price and currency controls.
Venezuela has the world’s highest inflation—estimated by the International Monetary Fund to reach 720% this year—making it nearly impossible for families to make ends meet. Since 2013, the economy has shrunk 27%, according to local investment bank Torino Capital; imports of food have plunged 70%.
Hordes of people, many with children in tow, rummage through garbage, an uncommon sight a year ago. People in the countryside pick farms clean at night, stealing everything from fruits hanging on trees to pumpkins on the ground, adding to the misery of farmers hurt by shortages of seed and fertilizer. Looters target food stores. Families padlock their refrigerators.
Three in four Venezuelans said they had lost weight last year, an average of 19 pounds, according to the National Poll of Living Conditions, an annual study by social scientists. People here, in a mix of rage and humor, call it the Maduro diet after President Nicolás Maduro.
For more than a month, Venezuelans have protested against the increasingly authoritarian government of Mr. Maduro; by Friday, more than 35 people had been reported killed in the unrest. The country’s Food Ministry, the president’s office, the Communications Ministry and the Foreign Ministry didn’t return calls or emails requesting comment for this article.
Of course they didn’t. You didn’t expect them to admit that Socialism was destroying their county, do you?
Venezuela is still a horror story and an example of what Marxist Totalitarianism does to a thriving country when installed as a national government.
My parents were 40 years older than me.
I can remember them telling stories to me about the Great Depression, which they experienced as children.
Their stories included recollections of bare grocery shelves and panic among the populace.
The aim of installing Socialism as a form of government, just like all forms of Marxism, is to have complete control of the daily lives of a nation’s people from cradle to grave.
Look around us.
The Democrats in power are attacking our American Way of Life, everything that has helped to make America great.
They are attacking our Energy Supply, which Americans rely on to get back-and-forth to work, to go to the doctor, to the grocery store, to pick up their children, the means of transportation with which to live their everyday lives.
And, they are attacking the means we use to heat and cool our homes.
They are attacking our Food Supply, as witnessed through the massive shortages in grocery stores of everything from meat and vegetables, to even baby formula.
They are attacking our investments, as witnessed through the tanking of the Stock Market.
They are even attacking our children, by teaching them that everything that Americans believe as a result of our traditional upbringing, including the facts that God created man and woman, and that he gave us this Sacred Land to cherish, are wrong.
The Far Left Demcrata, as witnessed this week with their attempt to label Former President Trump and his supporters as extremists, which failed miserably and backfired on them, will stop at nothing in their quest to turn America into Venezuela.
They must fail.
