It has been almost 250 years since the Founders of the United States of America, literally put their lives on the line and declared that 13 colonies in the Americas declared their independence from England’s Monarchy of King George. In the intervening years, almost every generation has had to step forward and face the threat war, and our time is no different.
Now we have an internal threat to go along with external threats from overseas terrorism, Socialism has reared its ugly head. Socialism has been around since the 1850’s and has failed miserably every time it has been used as a form of government. In 1917, Russia became a Socialist State and began the push of International Socialism by having agents infiltrate Democratically elected governments around the World until 1991 when it’s government collapsed. Germany became a National Socialist State in the 1930s and they gave the world, the 2nd World War, that horror show ended with the defeat of Germany in 1945.
Unfortunately, the Russians were very successful in training radical students and professors in the Universities around the world and over time those who have followed Socialism have indoctrinated many others to believe their garbage. Socialism has long been used by Dictators as a method to fool the population with promises of a perfect world, the reality as always is poverty for the population and all the riches going to the dictator. Countries around the world that went for a Socialist Government are a financial mess and a dead end for the growth of society.
The United States has kept the socialist at bay for decades, unfortunately Socialism has grown and has a strong foothold in the universities and are in the lower lever education systems. They have infiltrated the school systems and local politics to point that they are now embolden to go out in the light of National Politics and openly run as Socialist for Congress. The Democrat Party has been taken over by Socialist and is now run openly by the hard left. People who believe in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights better buckle up, Socialist have no problem with using violence to succeed. At the moment only way to stop them without violence is the Trump Administration being extremely successful in all of its efforts, which is why Congressional Democrats are obstructing at every opportunity. The success of the Trump Administration would prove the financial viability of the Capitalist System that is used in the U.S.A. and that Socialist promises are nothing but a promise.
British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, once said that Socialism works only as long as you are spending someone else’s money.
