So do you think you could do a better job of running a Socialist government?
    Visit     So You Want Socialism?     and see if you are up to it...

What draws you to Socialism?
    Better read   Who Gets To Decide?   before you go much further.

When you say "Socialism", think Tyranny.

Socialism is about control.   Socialism is about an authoritarian autocracy telling you, your friends, and everyone else what to do.   Socialism is just another word for tyranny.
"For your own good" implies somebody else is better able to run your life than you.   No matter how it starts out, it inevitably spirals down into ever-greater oppression.

Socialism is about turning over your freedom to the government

                The is no right way.

Socialism is not about peace and love and sharing.   It's about using force to make people do what you want.   That's oppresion.

You can't have Socialism without tyranny.























Socialism is the biggest plague ever visited upon humanity.   To date it has killed 120-150 million people, and still today enslaves billions more, in China, India, and elsewhere.   Imagine if Mahatma Gandhi and Mao Tse Tung had been educated about freedom and rights, in the U.S., instead of being taught by advocates of socialism in Britain and Soviet Russia.   How different those countries and the whole world would be now.

"Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems. America stands with every person living under a brutal regime. Our respect for sovereignty is also a call for action. All people deserve a government that cares for their safety, their interests and their well-being, including their prosperity."

13 February 2017

True story: A socialist I know left one job yesterday for another with higher pay. I accused him of being a capitalist. His response was to lament that it would mean he would have to pay higher taxes.

Excuse me? Lament? Which part of socialism does he not understand???

Socialism is about paying more taxes; about the belief that the government knows what to do with your money - and your life - better than you do. Socialism is about a government out of your control, spending the money it takes from you in taxes on things you may not agree your money should be spent on.

Freedom is about you being in control of your life and your money.

Socialism is about the government's control of you. Who cares if you like that or not?? In socialism, what you like or do not like is irrelevant. In socialism, you have no rights.

To all you socialists:
Do you really think you'll have a say in who makes the rules?
Freedom it's not.

12 February 2017

Socialism kills - "Three meals a day is a luxury." - government running out of victims; a populace under Socialism now killing flamingos, armadillos, lizards to eat.

21 September 2016

See the ultimate end of a socialist government which has exhausted the riches of productive people to victimize, and is in its death-throes, in this article about Venezuela. If you were too young to witness the collapse of the Soviet Union, you can learn about the same inherent flaws of socialism - in real, live action - by watching and studying the collapse of Venezuela - a classic, textbook example.

Socialism only survives as long as it can steal existing wealth. It can create none of its own. Socialism is not productive. When it uses up its last victims, it is finished.

This is the inevitable end of socialism, any time, any place.

20 September 2016

Socialism equals Dictatorship

Socialism is the government telling you what to do. "Democratic Socialism" is only a ploy to make you feel like you have some little bit of participation in what they tell you to do - and to spread the blame for who is responsible for the conditions you are forced to endure.

Why do so many Europeans wear that so typically familiar resigned, cynical, cowed expreesion? Why is their habitual, perennial, underlying attitude so different from that of Americans? Ask them sometime how the "democratic" part of their socialism is working out for them. Ask them about freedom. Where is it? Think about why so many still escape to the U.S. to live.

The EU is a case in point, as the recent news article linked here shows - what is happening there is not an isolated occurence, but an inherent, inevitable demonstration of what happens under socialism. What has occurred so far is only the beginning.

"Democratic" - i.e., the supposed participation of the population, is used to explain and justify the miniscule "some little bit" of ever-growing restrictions. But oppression is progressive, never-ending. The only way it can end is in bloodshed and rebellion.

Either format of socialism is founded on the destruction of freedom; the destruction of individula rights, and the destruction of your right to "ordain and establish" a true constitution, which is above the government and beyond its ability to alter. These are the things Socialist dictators - up to and including the EU Commission autocrats - fear the most.

When someone says the U.S. Constitution "is old, out-of-date, and makes it hard to govern", those limitations on government are what they mean. Those limitations were put there by deliberate intent when the Constitution was written, in full awareness that would-be dictators would be hobbled. The nature of tyranny was present and recognized then, just as it is now; it does not change. The rule of law - with nobody above the law - stops autocrats in their tracks. The EU and its autocratic Commission have a lot to learn about building good government.

The freedom of the United States, with its greatest achievement, its Constitution protecting that freedom, with its free citizens, who believe in that freedom, revel in it, stand proud and tall in it, refusing to bow to anyone, who are willing to defend it - that freedom, country, and Constitution all remain an ever-present, unapologetic, slap-in-the-face affront and threat to all dictators everywhere, from the EU on down, with the simple fact of its existence providing a lighthouse and a reminder to their victims that a better way of life exists beyond their country's borders - one which they never stop dreaming of reaching, or emulating, if they could.

No wonder socialists work so hard to undermine America, corrupt the education of its younger generations, spend fortunes trying to influence its worst elements, shake its core, subvert and erode its structure.

There is always some "higher order", or "greater good" (but for who?), touted as a justification for socialism, as an attempt to convince the unwary and unknowing voters that their oppression is justified and somehow worth it. Democratic socialism is a dictatorship by thugs, hidden behind a facade (the votes of the majority) to which the dictator can point to as his justification - someone else on whom he can lay the blame.

Socialism and democratic socialism are both statements that you are not fit to self-govern, and that someone else is, and needs to do it for you. The ages of Kings and Commissars are not gone, but just wearing new, more fashionable clothes. The socialism that ignited Europe's horrendous battles of World War II is not gone. It still dominates European politics and life. It is less violent, but still oppressive, still in control, still destructive, still there. The con remains the same.

Socialism always and inevitably grows progressively more oppressive over time. There is no justification for it to be otherwise.

Socialism does have one distinction: in the 20th century, more than 120 million people were murdered in the name of socialism. No other scourge that has touched humanity comes close to that level of destruction. That's an all-time, very poignant, and indicative record.

Socialists can be grouped as being in one of three distinct categories: the killers and dictators, their willing gang of enforcers and thugs, and their unwitting idealistic-fantasy dupes. Everyone else is a victim - and a subject, living without freedom.

For everybody, socialism is the opposite of freedom.

-- Scott
