Help Fight the Socialist Wave
"President Trump's election, while crucial, can't turn away the wave of these new European style socialists bearing down upon us … How about Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Bill DeBlasio, Andrew Cuomo, Corey Booker, Christopher Murphy and Keith Ellison … they hide behind labels like 'Democrat,' 'left-wing,' and 'progressive' to make their socialist agenda more palatable, and that's terrifying."

I know what Marxism is. I also know that Marx & Engels were talking about in the Communist Manifesto, which describes the transfer of political and economic power from royalty & feudalism to the capitalists; from the capitalists to the socialists; and then from socialists to communists.
But anyone who supports or benefits from a 40 hour work week, overtime pay, employees being able to buy shares in the companies they work for, worker's compensation, unemployment benefits, employee profit sharing, and Social Security literally supports socialism in action. And if I had to guess, that includes plenty of people who work at gun manufacturers. Hence why this whole idea is stupid.
But seeing as so many people just dumb this stuff down and use "socialism" as a catchall bogeyman term for anything they don't like, I'm not surprised that many people who currently enjoy some of the things that I mentioned in the last paragraph are rooting for the NRA to oppose socialism.

Well, there is the third party in US politics coming out in the open after decades of propping up the Republican Party.
That is what I would like to see, no more ''who's behind the curtain'' bs.
In 2020 just go to the polls and cast votes for the NRA, who ever they run, just vote the NRA ticket. No more guessing who best will represent our freedoms, our hopes our dreams, just vote NRA. Life will be so simple for so many.
Butt then when they lose, maybe we can tell them to just shut the # up.
Yes some of the systems you mention are beneficial to some but overall the systems are being raped by the debt and that debt will swallow us all if not kept in check.
Communism will never work as long as evil exist. Perhaps someday a man will come along and put evil in check and then we can be at peace with each other. Until then gov. programs and intrusion are not cohesive with our society as a whole.
To petition for socialism or communism without internal reform is the same as slow kill suicide.
