Socialism is a Farce
By Michael J. Lewinski 05/05/19
Socialism is a fraud, a farce. It’s a system in which the people pretend to work and the government pretends to pay them. At least that’s the way Governor Mike Huckabee sees it. We have seen it in Russia. We have seen it in China. We have seen it in Cuba. We have seen it in El Salvador, and now in Venezuela, and soon, here in the USA if the Progressive Democratic Socialists have anything to say about it.
Of course, that isn’t the way it has to be. We can elect Conservative Republicans who support and promote competitive free market capitalism. It just depends on whether more Socialist Democrats turn out or more Conservative Republicans and Moderates turn out and vote.
We certainly have the motivation to do that. Socialism always ends up with the government forcing people to do what they don’t want to do at the end of a gun barrel. Socialists take care of the government leaders and their allies by draining resources from the economy, while leaving everyone else high and dry.
In Venezuela, the government employees and military are not lacking food, health care, water or toilet paper. That is only missing in the general population. Socialists come to power by promising the world to the middle and working class, and every time they fail miserably.
Do you believe Medicare for all will deliver better health care for you than what you currently receive? Will it produce better outcomes for you? What about free college for all? Will anyone who wants to go to college but is not prepared to achieve produce a better-educated population?
And then there is the Green New Deal. How will that succeed when China and India are not only participating, but are adding new greenhouse gases to the atmosphere? What difference will it make when you are forced to give up traditional modes of transportation, required to retrofit your houses, and made to change your preferred foods? If you don’t want to live like the masses in Venezuela, turn out and vote against Socialism.
