Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.
Thats from President Donald Trumps last State of the Union address. Im sure many people found it as encouraging as I did, especially in light of surveys indicating that socialism is gaining popularity here in the United States.
And not just at the fringes. One recent Gallup poll showed 4 out of 10 Americans have a favorable impression of socialism. Almost half47%said they would vote for a socialist candidate for president.
But dont despair just yet. The same poll also revealed that almost 2 out of every 3 Americans62%say that decisions about the economy should be left up to the free market, not the government. The same holds true when it comes to health care and higher education.
If you know anything about socialism, these results are completely contradictory. Its obvious that a lot of people who say they favor socialism dont understand what it is.
I find that somewhat encouraging. Not that so many people dont understand what socialism is, of course, but that much of its apparent support is based on a misunderstanding. That certainly beats a genuine conviction that socialism is better.
If they understood what socialism isa system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state, to use Merriam-Websters definitionthey would realize its the antithesis of free enterprise. That its the very opposite of freedom.
Many Americans who say they favor socialism clearly are hearing socialism and thinking of it instead as a way to fix whatever societal woes are bothering them.

It’s got NOTHING to do with sharing or equitable redistribution of the wealth (whatever the #### that is).
It’s about control of EVERY aspect of the individual’s life.
Implementing socialism is a quick way to destroy a society, which begs the question of why it is called “socialism.”
Big public education campaign needed before the next election.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.
The “Progressives” promote Democratic Socialism, which leads to the control of production by Democracy or the Mob who will make the decisions instead of a small group at the top making the rules. Trotsky would be so proud of today’s Democrats. See Entryism
Dumbed-down, indoctrinated, brainwashed Libiots believe Socialism is the only way to succeed. Failure will not change their minds.
Socialism - you can vote your way in, but you have to shoot your way out.
Not greed, slavery and death.
Two things need to be expressed about socialism;
1). The more security, social programs, free health care, and so on,,, the LESS freedom we will have. Security and freedom are diametrically opposed in a zero sum equation.
2). The NAZIs were socialists, far to the left of American politics,,, not to the right. NAZI stands for National Socialist Workers Party. Fascists are on the extreme LEFT, not the right.
Not greed, slavery and death.
Envy is the core motivation behind greed.
Per Common Sense, society is a blessing, and government is an evil necessary only to the extent of the imperfection of society.
Socialism is cynicism directed towards society and - it follows - naiveté towards government.
Socialism is antisocial.
“Its about control of EVERY aspect of the individuals life.”
But as we allow more and more of the world’s “$hit People” into our country, the more our collective society will be all in for having our lives “managed” by the RATs. Because they have this mistaken opinion of themselves wherein they see themselves as “qualified” to run the lives of the rest of us. The only possible salvation will be the Second Amendment, And that is why they make it’s abolition “job one!” Because they know that those they really hate ( us conservatives) have nearly all the privately owned firearms. So when they finally provoke CWII, they need to know we won’t prevail and kill all of them.
You shall not covet.
It becomes the gospel of greed because it is founded on the gospel of envy.
