Socialism I – Baby Steps
Posted on October 10, 2008 | By wally
Rounding the corner and coming down the homestretch to the 2008 election are two candidates who have vastly different plans for the future of our so far free nation.
On one hand we have the McCain/Palin ticket who lean towards conserving our nations traditionally free way of government and on the other hand we have the Obama/Biden ticket, who with Democratic Party support, are planning big changes in our nation. If we elect Barrack Obama we are electing to transform our nation to a socialist nation. Time to ask yourself if that is really the kind of change you are looking for in our nation.
Today I’ve reposted two earlier posts that I feel are very timely to the decision we have facing us in a few weeks. Baby Steps, one of my earlier post, briefly describes the path from capitalism to communism. The second Destruction of the Human Spirit is a more recent post that connects Barrack Obama with this line of thinking.
Most are not aware of our nation’s baby steps toward communism. Aware or not they are happening. Most “peace” rallies protest etc. are fronts for socialist/communist organizations. Using the war as camouflage for their actions is serving them well. News won’t report what is going on. I have provided links to our local press and local government on several occasions, but there is no interest. I wondered why. Wondering why is what I do.
The why seems to be that we are in a Democrat county and the Democrats are the biggest promoters of socialism in our nation. They want us to be a socialist nation, they just don’t want to say that in public. Which party pushes for the most social programs? Which party pushes for “living wages” regardless of job performance? Which party pushes for government defined morality? Which party refuses to defend our nation? Which party hides socialism behind the word progressive? Which party has dozens of members in congress who are also part of a Congressional Progressive Caucus started by the Democratic Socialists of America? Do you want our nation to become a socialist or communist nation? Should we aspire to be like China, Venezuela, former Soviet Union, or France?
I’m not promoting a McCarthy witch hunt, I’m just saying that if you don’t want our nation to be like these nations then tell your friends to quit voting socialist Democrats into congress.
Capitalism is free market, open competition, profit motive and private ownership of the means of production. Capitalism encourages private investment and business, compared to a government-controlled economy. Investors in these private companies (i.e. shareholders) also own the firms and are known as capitalists.
Political ideology that advocates a peaceful, evolutionary transition of society from capitalism to socialism, using established political processes.
Political-economic doctrine that, unlike capitalism which is based on competition, seeks a cooperative society in which the means of production and distribution are owned by the government or collectively by the people. Karl Marx saw socialism as a transition state between capitalism and communism.
A system of social organization in which goods are held in common. Communism in the United States is something of an anomaly. The basic principles of communism are, by design, at odds with the free enterprise foundation of the U.S. government. The freedom of individuals to privately own property, start a business, and own the means of production is a basic tenet of U.S. government, and communism opposes this ideal.
