Will Americans Vote For Socialism?


There is very little that our founding fathers and our avowed enemies had in common, but they both agreed on one thing.
That thought is if the American dream is to be destroyed, it will come from within.
The following two quotes are from opposite poles of the concept of a free Republic that the United States was founded to be.The first is a quote from one of the notable signers of the Declaration of Independence, and they other from a man who ruled with an iron fist the Communist Soviet Union.
“Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories.” – Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Query 14, 1781
I once said, “We will bury you,” and I got into trouble with it. Of course we will not bury you with a shovel. Your own working class will bury you.” – Nikita Khrushchev
For those of you who believe we are are Democracy, I must remind you that because the founding fathers believed that democracies led to mob rule. They founded a nation under God that is a Republic controlled by and for the people. The electoral college keeps us a Republic even though politicians since President Roosevelt have been eroding the freedoms granted by Our Constitution.
Today we have two Democrats involved in a “fish monger” type fight to be the candidate for the November election for President of this once proud Republic.
Both advocate openly, the radical shift toward socialism that began in 1933 with Roosevelt’s New Deal.
President Roosevelt captured the Presidency in a time when the unemployment was at 28.3%, most of the U.S. banks had failed and millions were homeless.
He had little trouble enacting social welfare programs that were eagerly accepted by a starving majority. He took office in 1933, and his first executive order, order 6102, made it illegal for United States citizens to own and hold gold. He did this with a perversion of the “Trading With the Enemy Act” as the justification for confiscating personal gold. An order which if done by President Bush today would lead to his immediate impeachment.
The order allowed a citizen to hold a maximum of $100 in gold coins, and failure to surrender all gold valued above that could result in a $10,000 fine and up to ten years in jail. He pegged golds value at $20.67 per ounce. He also nullified all private and public contracts that called for payment in gold! Thus began the march toward socialism.
Roosevelt had the help of an avowed Socialist in Harry Hopkins in the development of CCC, NRA, WPA, Farm Credit Act and the Wagner Act. All of these put hundreds of thousands of unemployed men and a few women to work for the government at a cost of $45 billion.. Many still hail Roosevelt for ending the depression.
But history shows that in his second term the U.S. went into another recession, and we were well on our way toward Socialism, and in 1935 the Supreme Court of the U.S. declared the NRA act to be unconstitutional! I believe Roosevelt not only saved the Soviet Union with his inclusion of them in the Lend Lease Act( $50 billion) that cost thousands of merchant seamen their lives on the trip to Murmansk, but gave away half of Europe to the Soviets at Yalta.
He left a legacy of runaway government spending and the beginning of the debasement of our currency.
Roosevelt was the hero of the Progressive Liberals not unlike Obama and Hilary have become today. They propose to expand the intrusion of the Federal government into our lives by offering Socialised Medicine(aka limited medical care) as National Health insurance, freedom from religion in place of the Founding Founders Freedom from a National religion in the disguised name of Freedom of Religion.
Today’s Democrats preach what Lenin shouted in 1917 to the Russian proletariat.. “Rob the Rich and give to the Poor”. Or if you would rather, give to the working man more than he earns by taking it from those who work via taxation.
The liberals preach that Capitalism is unfair, Socialism is good, God is dead, competition is for war mongering Nazi Fascists, and the Federal government should take care of you from the cradle to the grave!
And the sad part of this atrocity is that many people have bought into this philosophy,aka Religion! Why else would people be swooning over an empty suit Socialist like Obama or a known power happy Marxist like Hillary?
God Help The United States if either of them gets into the Oval office!
