What does socialism bring us? Obama knows the answer and you won't like it!

I used to assume that most Americans understand socialism is an evil, immoral system of economics and government.

But then I'll have a conversation with a younger person who has been taught throughout their life that only the government can spread wealth fairly or that market economics is inherently corrupt.

So, let’s ask the real question: "What does socialism bring us?"

Here are a few things you might like to think about:

-Do you believe in private property?
-How would you feel if someone took yours?
-Where has socialism ever succeeded?
-What does the government do well?
-What does the Bible have to say about economics?
-What did America's founders have to say about economics?
-Is socialism constitutional?

If you answer these questions honestly, you’ll see that socialism is an unmitigated disaster.

Most people believe in private property – especially their own.

Most people don't like having their things stolen. In fact, it's government's job to protect you from theft, not to be the thief.

Most people will be unable to point to a single successful socialist experiment – unless they choose some relatively new Western nation with a "mixed economy." Those include Canada, formerly Great Britain, France and other European countries. Those countries are more aptly described as “Social Democracies” You might even say that America fits this category. It's important to recognize that mere survival as a nation over a period of time does not make for a successful experiment. Socialism, for instance, aims to eliminate or reduce poverty. In none of these nations has poverty been eliminated or reduced as a result of socialist experiments.

Most people recognize that government is necessary, but inefficient. What they might not recognize is that it is also poses the greatest threat to freedom. The more power it has, the less freedom individual citizens have. Government is a necessary evil – something that should be tolerated as a limited nuisance, not counted on for your basic needs.

Most people don't realize the Bible countenances private property. It holds it up as honorable – as long as it does not become a diversion from God, as long as it does not become man's god.

Most people apparently forget what our founders had to say about property. They forget that our Constitution expressly limits the power of the federal government. You could say constitutionally limited government is the opposite of socialism.

It's going to be a painful awakening when Americans see how the country will be under the new Obama administration.

-Wait until you see how expensive "free" health care really is.
-Wait until you see how little wealth you have after they spread it around.
-Wait until you see what it's like to have to ask a government bureaucrat for permission to do things you once took for granted.

That's what socialism brings us. People have to see it for themselves.

They have to experience the misery and the control the government will exert over their lives.

They have to see it with their own eyes to believe it.
Maybe then, we will have a chance to get America back on track.

Maybe then, we will have enough courage and desire to fight to regain what we have lost.

Maybe then, our experiences will protect us, for awhile, from the freedom-stealers.

Maybe then, we will have enough sense to educate our young people as to the inherent evils of socialism – so they won't be fooled, again.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a great day and be thankful we live in America.

We just had an election. Whatever side you were on doesn't matter now. Now it's time to make sure our country gets back to where it should be.

You know, in The United States we have a unique situation that's never before been done in history.
America is able to have a change in power, by the People through election, without resorting to violence and military force.

Think about it. We've never had a military coup, a dictatorship or an outright seizure of the government by any outside force. That's unique in the history of the world.

And that's something we all should be grateful for!

On this Veteran's Day, A Mother Asked:

A mother asked President Bush, "Why did my son have to die in Iraq?"

Another mother asked President Kennedy, "Why did my son have to die in Vietnam?"

Another mother asked President Truman, "Why did my son have to die in Korea?

Another mother asked President F.D. Roosevelt, "Why did my son have to die at Iwo Jima?"

Another mother asked President W. Wilson, "Why did my son have to die on the battlefield of France?"

Yet another mother asked President Lincoln, "Why did my son have to die at Gettysburg?"

And yet another mother asked President G. Washington, "Why did my son have to die near Valley Forge?"

Then long, long ago, a mother asked... "Heavenly Father, why did my Son have to die on a cross outside of Jerusalem?"

The answers to all these are similar -- "So that others may have life and dwell in peace, happiness and freedom."

Please remember today, Veteran's Day, those who gave all they had so our nation can live in freedom.

Happy 233rd Birthday USMC!

Congratulations on your glorious history to The United States Marine Corps.

May Success, God and Glory be at your sides always!

News of the Obama administration.

This is pretty funny, but I'll bet it's much closer to the truth than the MSM would have us believe.

Thoughts and observations on Election Day.

Is America about to fall into a Marxist/socialist hell hole by electing Barack Hussein Obama as President? I hope not but so far the reports indicate that he'll win.

I noticed today that Barack's good buddies Bill Ayres and Louis Farrakhan have cast their votes at the same polling place as Obama and Michelle voted. No surprise there.

There are reports of Black Panther members intimidating voters at the polls in Philadelphia. Is this the kind of thing we should expect in "Obamamerica"?

I've always thought that the Republican Party didn't do enough with the Ayres and Dornn connection.
