Zendo Deb has a great piece up regarding the reality of “Socialism”
The Quote of the day comes from Ludwig von Mises.
The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau.
Ludwig von Mises (2016). Bureaucracy: The Economist
Truth is a powerful thing, and the quote above is, absolute truth. Socialism, Leftism, Leninism, and all the other bastard “isms” that Marx and Engels spawned have the same goal, control, of you, of everything. Never forget that. Never forget that Bernie Sanders, and AOC, and the rest of the “woke” left want to erase our constitution. But, do not allow the talk of “moderate” Democrats to seduce you.
Listen to what the Democratic candidates this year have promised and promoted. Some form of single-payer healthcare (socialized medicine), seizure of your firearms, using the power of the government to eradicate firearm manufacturers, abortion even in the third trimester, and yes, beyond, tax hikes, punishing successful corporations, erasing, again to varying degrees, our border, and larger and larger federal government across the board. The list goes on, and on. They are all either Marxist, or are willing to pursue many tenets of Marxism to control you, and me, and everyone in the country.
Some may think such policies are good, and are acting from “good intentions” Some are just power hungry, and will use whatever means to gain their ends. And some are simply dedicated Marxists. And, no matter which of these drive the current Democratic Party, they will all arrive at the same conclusion. No more America!
