LINK: The day socialism comes to America
But with the initiatives being proposed by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the 2008 presidential campaign, it appears Norman Thomas was right all along. Americans will, indeed, embrace every fragment of the socialist program in the name of liberalism.
Both of the leading Democrats call for nationalized health care – for a power grab by Washington in which the federal government will seize full control of another one-seventh of the U.S. economy.
This would, of course, be the most dramatic and irreversible step toward U.S. socialism in the nation's history.
Plotted, schemed and planned... it can not be a coincidence that both Obama and Clinton want to change our society to socialism. If you were to ask either one... confront either one... they would deny it and claim that what they want to do has nothing to do with socialism. Clearly... they are not of the democratic party... they are of the socialist party and they're too afraid of NOT getting elected that they won't just come out and admit it.
Thing is... after reading so much garbage off of YouTube today, it's clear to me now that it wouldn't matter if Obama came out and said he was a communist... people would still follow him into the darkness of oppression and (dare I say it) slavery, without even batting an eye lash.
Americans may simply be too far gone spiritually, morally and intellectually
to reject the temptations of socialism.
Socialism is antithetical to human nature, yet it has great appeal to the human mind.
People have been broken down by our educational programs... told that the country's problems have been caused by certain groups of people. There has been no opposing side to the story... they're made to believe that America is falling apart and that we're evil and should be punished for crimes we have not committed or past discressions that have been forgiven.
America is not perfect and we've made some bad decisions along the way... unfortunately, those bad things are the highlights of history books and history videos shown in schools and the good things are sidelined. Children come home saying how bad America is for things they know not... things that coincidentally the teachers chopped up and purposely leave out important details (like how we give to others freely, without payment).
They come home to tell parents that the only thing Lincoln did was free slaves and that everyone opposed him (which makes all Americans out to want slaves) and that was why we had our civil war. That is only a half truth... only a small percentage of Americans owned slaves or even wanted them. They come home to tell how America bombed Japan and killed thousands of people... again... only a half truth.
We are made out to be the villain in every history discussion and what do we expect when these children grow into adults? They are bitter and jaded and disappointed in their country and brainwashed into believing that a socialist society would save them and make all the evil go away. I recall much of this teaching even when I was a child but it's stronger now and upsetting when I hear from my son how horrible we are.
Stop teaching our children to hate... stop teaching our children that we are the bad guys... stop now or we will fall so far into hell that there will be no return for centuries to come.
