Let me tell you this real simply. If you read the Constitution and the Declaration of Indepndence, read the Federlaist Papers, then you will see that
the United States was founded with the idea of limited and self-checking government. The idea originally was to keep the government small and keep the
states strong. That's why the senators were to be appointed by the states. THAT'S who they were to represent and that's what the tenth amendment
was all about. The idea was that the individual was in charge of his own life, but also had responsibilities.
Has it turned out that way? Of course not. We can all write books about the evils of America, the evils of corporations, slavery, oh, the poor
indians, blah blah blah. I don't really care. To the point.
Socialism is all government all the time. Communism is just socialism on the fast track or "liberalism in a hurry.". Both are the exact opposite of
the original idea of limited government. Now you have to ask yourself how a country goes communist. the basic idea here is hold a revolution and kill
millions of your own citizens. You 'collectivize the farms" by killing the farmers. This happened in the Soviet Union. It happened in China. It
happened in Cuba. After you do all this yiou install an authoritarian government. Ever heard of a Communist democracy? Pretty rare bird. All
government all the time means authoritarian rule, and that's what we are seeing today. We're seeing a government intentionally making a greaster
percentage of citizens dependent on the Federal Government.
It's a recipe for disaster. Half the people don't pay any income tax at all. Good example is BIA, founded to :help" the American Indian. Hundreds
of years of 'help' created a dependent society racked with alcoholism, poverty, grief, and hoplessness. Now that the tribes are managing to start up
casinos and corporations thay are beginning to break the shackles of the crippling governmental socialist agenda and are freeing themselves like never
before. It's been an amazing transformation to watch,
Now I know the socialists will rush in here and waste a lot of ink trying to skewer this. I also know that it is a long shot for America to survive
the onslaught of "progressive" thinking that is destroying this country and making it a shadow of its former self. I fear that my children abd
grandchildren will be living in an oppressive and totalitarian society brought on by mindless liberals who substute slogans for thinking. I absolutely
hate you for it and I am only glad that I won't be here much longer.
Last post, of course.
