Socialism. There is nothing more feared and hated in America. The word alone sends shivers down the spine of the American people.
Those three syllables conger up images of Big Brother Government ruling over us all, telling us what to eat, wear, buy, and think. Our children in national uniform being indoctrinated with propaganda in government education camps that use to be schools, turning them into little slaves. While their parents work twelve hour shifts in the concentration camp that slaughters rich successful billionaires, as the poor and needy get a million dollars a month in welfare. A murderous government waging a war against freedom and liberty to gain complete control over everyone and everything.
You know, the way things were under that socialist Bill Clinton. And the way things are now under that socialist Barack Obama.
They imagine the USSR and how Democrats are turning America into it because our government will give money to poor people so they don’t starve to death. (Giving money to billion dollar corporations is NOT socialism somehow. You would be a communist and a hippie to think otherwise.)
This is scary stuff!
And it’s about to get scarier, because I have some terrifying news for you….
Socialism is alive and well in America and it has been here for a very long time!
Oh, that’s not all. it gets much worse! I hope you’re sitting down…
As it turns out, you love socialism and you use it everyday, and you may not even know it! It may have even saved your life. I know, this is bad…
Now relax and breathe. It’s going to be okay! We are going to get through this.
You see, we are still a capitalist nation. In America, you can still make a billion dollars, get a giant tax cut, and pay your employees barely enough to survive while you sail in your yacht to escape any guilt that might inconvenience you. So don’t freak out just yet!
The thing is, socialism is all over America and people actually like it. Even you… Yes you!
Well I hate to be the one to tell you, but Socialism, which you have been told to fear all your life, is responsible for all this…
