Russia 1917. Lennin used his army of "Useful Idiots" to over run the Tsarist capitol of Peterograd (St Petersburg) and the Communist Revolution was on.

Followed immediately by a bloody Civil War, and the usual socialist reign of terror that follows after the socialist manage to take over any nation.

Murder, death, unjust imprisonment of anyone who didnt agree with the Socialist dogma as terrorist and hooligans, who were rounded up in batches, given a false show trial (if any) and sent to a gulag where they were worked to death in subhuman conditions.

Lennin was the father of the modern socialist trolls. His attitude was.."If your going to make an omelette, you have to crack a few eggs".

Truth and individual freedom werent really big on his list of important things.

The rhetoric of the socialist (both then and now) was to demonize anyone who simply disagreed with socialism. They were called "extremist" and "anarchist", and just as soon as all resistance was removed...the socialist acted upon thier words and set about the reign of terror.

Sounds familliar, doesnt it?

That evil empire went on and on, killing hundreds of millions around the world, until Ronald Reagan brought it down.

That is a Communist Revolutionary.

A Progressive is someone who agrees ideologically with thier Communist buddies, but they just dont want a revolution to take over.

The Progressives want to do it gradually, in stages. They want to slowly brainwash the people (especially the younger ones) to make them into the "useful idiots" to help the socialist to take over.

It is not a question of if our republic will survive - the question should be; how will the US end? All of these goofy feel good programs pushed through by democrats buying votes for the past 80 years are accelerating the demise of our country. We are probably closer to the end of the United States that most of us want to believe. ObaamaCare and liberal socialism progressiveness will be a footnote in a history book. They are pushing as much as they can now as fast as they can. They know when the days ahead when they call to take more 1st and 2nd amendment rights away will be when they take over completely or brave and proud Americans make and take a stand for Ole Glory once again.

The most dangerous thing to politicians on Capitol Hill are the few who want to do what the people want and say.
History will show that Obama is the one who that kept the government closed. And many more things will history show that he Obama and his administration made every effort to bring down this great nation of America...PURPOUSLY

What's wrong with socialism.? You use it like its a bad word. Just because you can tie socialism to some murderous leaders (Lennon) that doesn't mean socialism is a bad thing.

In my opinion, almost anything would be better than what we have. This form of UNREGULATED capitalism has left America without a chance of survival.

Personally. I've worked since I was 12. And I'm simply not going to allow the damn Walton family have every penny in the US. Wanna talk about socialism? That's when the wealthy few (32,000) have all the money and the rest of us (369 million) are dead broke all the time no matter how hard we work.

Now, u call it what you want. FOX colors the Walton Family and the KOCH brothers a as "job creators" and then sells that thru their propaganda Bullshit Mountain network and it comes out the other and as : the Walton's worked hard all their lives and made the American dream work for them : I see the communist way. i see them as leaches on society. They never have worked. They purchase little unpatriotic tea party politicians who would sell out their own moms for $100. The 1% pushed through Citizens united so they can contribute unlimited amounts of cash anonymously to teabagger politicians! now! I'm a socialist! but that sound a lot more like socialism to me than a transparent, open democratic society. The US Chamber of commerce actually pushed that one thru. While they ship some 4 million jobs overseas, the Chamber blames Obama for job loss. At this point, I can't help it. I have to call "STUPID". FOX news actually ran a bit about how "buying American " wasn't really good for America. Now I'm starting to call " damn, that's almost economic treason" if there is such a thing.

Now, I'm going to get a bit over the heads of the average a paper east Tennessean here and there's no nice way to say that. But these wealthy (not rich) but wealthy. Have a disease. Not all of them. Not bill and Melinda gates and not Warren buffet. See, they were not born into wealth. They did truly work hard and make the American dream come true. Bill and Melinda have donated over 99% of all of their wealth to humanitarian causes? Buffet? Pretty much the same thing.

Compare that to the Koch brothers. Born with $3 billion dollars. Actually speak out against my programs to aid the poor or damn near anybody actually. And the Walton's. They work 1.2 million people below the poverty level.

I hold the gates and Buffets in the highest esteem and on that day, Our King will say to them "My good and faithful servant" and on that same day, to the Walton's and to the Kochs "Depart from me, I never knew you"

No, I'm not for the redistribution of wealth. I'm for the TOTAL COLLAPSE THE UNITED STATES ECONOMY, IM FOR A REVOLUTION TO DESTROY WALL STREET AND TO DO AWAY WITH THE SUPREME COURT. IM FOR FORMING TWO PREFERABLY PEACEFUL SOCIETIES THAT LIVE SOMEHOW, APART. ITS TIME TO RESHUFFLE THE DECK......

Whats wrong with socialism?

Because People should be Free.

More and more, our lives have rules dictated upon them by people and entities that dont necessarily have our best interest in mind.

Socialism is merely a means to take away our ability to escape from them.

Freedom is the opposite of socialism, but it doesnt come with safety straps.

Freedom is the chance to get away from other peoples rules and limitations that are usually enforced for thier advantage, not ours.

But freedom can make a fool out of us to. With freedom, we have the potential to succeed or fail according to our own efforts and judgements.

With socialism, we are going to automatically fail in lockstep with the overlords who oppress us. Its not a question of if we will fail under socialism. Failure is guaranteed.

The only question under socialism is how long can the worker drones carry the ever increasing load to support the totalitarian overlords, until the entire society fails?

The entire direction of socialism is flawed and wrong to start with. Why?

Well, we are in agreement that our freedom is important to us. Believe me, I want you to be free. I don't want you to feel like you need my approval to live you life, worship your God, and associate yourself with whomever you choose. All I really want from you is the same. Ill do my darnedest not to tread on you. I can live my life easily by staying out of your way and put of your life.

I'll go another step further and say that I will oppose anyone who threatens your freedom. I think that much of you as a fellow American having never even met you. But, and I don't mean to sound like the "freedom police" but I'm afraid I'll have to oppose you if you threaten others freedoms.

That's why I oppose Ron Ramsey on every front. This guy is nothing about building roads, cleaning up the environment, none of that stuff. Everything he does is to reduce people's freedoms and line his pocket with political money and friends in his almost comical attempts at being governor.

Picture that. Ron Ramsey as governor.... He's so Dumb that his eyes are crossed. He can barely finish a sentence. He wants war not harmony. He is divisive, not Christian. I loathe him as an enemy of God, an enemy of freedom and an enemy of America.

Now, because of his respect for freedom, I pray that God finds it fit that he end up bound in chains. He should be in prison in my opinion for deeds past and present. Now, there is a threat to your freedom.

I don't even like people who like him. I love America and I hate what he and his kind have done. They will be overcome, but who knows how much damage they will have done to America before they are stopped.

Well, I think its best to support individuals rather than parties. I dont know anything about Ron Ramsey, and Ive never really even given him a second thought.

Right now Im just interested in national level politics, like the mess going on in Washington. Ron Ramsey is of little interest to me one way or the other.

If you dont like Ron Ramsey, then support his electorial opponents, campaign against him, expose his incompetence if you like. It makes no difference to me.

Like I say, Ive never really given him a second thought. I like to support individuals more so than parties. There is some potential there in electing a good one now and then.

Except for the democrats.I think the whole lot of them are insane.

You're a good man, hillbilly. A patriot. I like that. My only point is well, have you ever hear the saying "think Globally, act locally?"

Your immediate and closest government representative is a thug.

Go on utube and see about how he is ripping off Tennesseans .

Good luck....

First, those of you that ask what's wrong with socialism... Let me ask you to live in your house for 6 months out of a year. Let me use your stuff, get half of your money and if you get a promotion then I get one too. Now, I don't see you leaving your home or giving me money or even enjoying the fact that I could get all the samethings you have. My point... We as Americans live in a nation where Capitalism is the most perfect way of life for us. I didn't say it was perfect just perfect for us. If I work harder then you then I should be rewarded more then you. If I save my money, invest it and I become very rich I the process... That means I wisely used my skills.
Let's put it in smaller terms. When you were in school... If you didn't do your homework you got and "F". If you did it but half hearted you could get a grade but not a good one. But if, you took the time, did it correctly and turned in, your hard work would be reflected with a higher grade.

In every unfortunate nation where socialism has won and enslaved the people of a formerly free nation, the pattern is always the same.

Any group that has the will and ability to politically oppose the socialist, is attacked in the media, called names (like terrorist, anarchist, extremist, etc etc), slandered, ridiculed, and demeaned.

And later on, after the socialist takeover is complete, its off to the gulag for them.

But, for most of the staunchest supporters of the socialist during the take over phase (the "useful idiots", as Lenin called them), they go off to the gulag too, once everything is said and done and the take over is complete.

Why?

Because during the socialist take over, they demonstrated that they had some resolve and courage in them, and they are dangerous to the regime.

Too dangerous to leave walking the streets, for one day they might wake up and realize that they have made a terrible mistake, and backed the wrong side.

And since they have already demonstrated that they have courage and resolve, well, you can see where that might make them a liability to the regime.

Stalin had Trotsky killed, after all.

So, for the liberal trolls and staunch democrat supporters who so vehemently attack the Tea Party these days, there might be something to think about in all of this.

After all, the pattern has proved itself correct in 100% of the cases of socialist take overs, going back a century.

And that higher grade amounted to nothing at all, unless daddy had the money to send you to college, where you could hobnob with the upper crust and be formed into a "well rounded person". Then you could get a bullshit job (or take the reins of pappy's business) and become a stuffed shirt who never has to do any real labor. I'm no socialist, but the pre arranged advantages for the already rich is not true capitalism. Today's capitalism is not a matter of hard work, it's a matter of being ruthless. Working hard is like being the faithful mule. You will be worked harder than the obstinate mule and then be ridden to church on Sunday.

Liberals are great with ridiculous slogans and fairy tale belief systems, arent they?

In the old USSR (the Great mother state of Socialist), there were all sorts of posters and banners and slogans painted all over the walls of buildings, which touted the benefits of socialism.

(They were painted there under threat of force, by political prisoners)

Socialism is just Fairey Dust that sparkles in the eyes of young, naive, wet-behind the ears kids. It is made to seem "Hip" in universities.

"Hey, Remember that "cool guy Obama that we voted for?"

But the expanded NSA spying program is listening to everything they say or do, and now keeping "buddy lists" on all of their activities, recording every conversation, and whom they associate with...etc etc etc.

These young kids arent smart enough to realize that this isnt a game. That it really isnt "Cool to be a Lefty".

That is because the left has gone way too far now. It isnt the 1970s any more. There is no more comfortable margin of safety between freedom and socialism.

Now, it is really serious. Now, actual damage is being done to America and our way of life.

Being a "lefty" isnt cool any more. It isnt a game anymore.

Now, it is for all the dice. Now it is for real. Now, it is permanent, and the freedoms they give up,can never be gotten back.

Ever.

I think Winston Churchill once said something concerning liberals and conservatives. Something like " any young man who isn't liberal has no heart and any mature man who isn't conservative hasn't a mind"...something like that and I agree. It seems that unreigned capitalism is the new socialism. Too many younger folk get all hoodwinked by the liberal agenda. Seems easy to present liberal ideology as being cool, thanks to our being flooded with it from the media. But once you have been around the block a time or two and learned from it, you see the holes in it. It seems like it is all portrayed as a social reform (everybody is ok in spite of how deviated they are and are entitled to a free ride). That's confusing liberty with being one of Big Brother's pawns. I agree, if you have to paint slogans and such on public buildings, then something is fishy. It's easier for them to undermine the media as they are doing now. I just wish there was a good medium, free health care without the corporate bastards making money off it. Maybe I'm being too much an optimist and I know I'm gonna catch hell from the liberals. I can take it!

That was a pretty good post, and I agree with you.

And yes, the media has brainwashed quite a few of our starry eyed college kids into thinking thsat being a lefty is somehow cool and hip.

But, I wonder how many of these starry eyed kids can put themselves into the shoes of the mothers whos sons were taken away by the Secret Police (Stasi) of East Germany, when it was a "Socialist Paradise"?

Or the wives or children of the many millions of victims of the Communist regimes around the world, who were carted off and disappeared without a trace?

And those same mothers and wives and children of the victims who looked mournfully out the windows, watching for the return of someone who will never come home?

The victims of socialism.

And I wonder if the starry eyed kids of today realize that they are still finding the skulls of the victims of socialism, being pulled up from the mud of Eastern Europe, and the rocky soil of Siberia?

The 1980s werent so awfully long ago.

Yet, the liberal news media never seems to mention that stuff anymore. And without the spoon fed sound bite stimulation to remind them of the ugly face of socialist history, our young starry eyed liberals of today go on as though none of this stuff ever happened.

It shows a complete lack of understanding by the liberals, doesnt it? They are playing with fire, and dont have the maturity to realize it.

But, the lulling process going on today, will only last for a while. When the socialist have things like they want it, and all resistance wiped out, then the lulling phase will end.

And the Tea Party is all the resistance that remains. The GOP is pacified and neutralized completely by the socialist. The Tea Party is the last resistance to mop up.

And once that is done, then what transpired in Eastern Europe will set in here.And who were always the first ones to get rounded up and taken away?

The "Intelligencia".

The young, starry eyed college kids.

It was unbelievable to me that a few years back Congress actually had to pass a LAW that made it illegal for them to insider trade! Passing a law that made it illegal to break the law!! I was even more amazed to find that they immediately repealed that law ( presumably when they found out how much money it was costing them?) which allowed them to trade stocks on information the rest of America was not privy to. Now, Rand Paul introduces a bill that requires Congress and their staff members to actually follow the same laws that "regular" citizens have to? Two sets of laws....one for the elites and one for the regular citizens.....just pick an amendment and witness the trampling of the Constitution!
Nancy Pelosi made $40 million on inside information on Visa stock.
"Well it wasn't illegal..." -Nancy Pelosi
Congress regularly exempts itself from a lot of things. Most famously, affirmative action.
AND,, we are to wonder WHY we can't seem to get rid of these thieves! Next thing will be a law that makes it illegal for them to be voted out of office and the ('supreme court') will uphold their law! It already seems that this so-called supreme court is taking over the congressional responsibility! When a one sided law that was in it's inception unconstitutional was considered by this court legal and overrode the consent of the people, should tell on a lot !
