Socialism in any form, no matter how mild you make it, is contrary to a Democracy. And the last time I looked America was still a Democracy.
Ronald Reagan once said “Socialism is Bolshevism with a shave.”
The Webster Dictionary defines Bolshevism as, “: the doctrine or program of the Bolsheviks advocating violent overthrow of capitalism: Russian communism.”
Dictionary.com states socialism as :
America is capitalism and we need to move back in that direction.
In the book called Outsider in the House, Bernie Sanders states, ” Bill Clinton is a moderate Democrat. I am a democratic socialist.”
You can not be a democratic socialist any more than you can be a Christian Jew!
Get real, Bernie needs either to own it or change his views.
Bernie Sanders bases his socialistic views on the Scandinavian (socialist) countries economies. And, in an interview with the Washington Post in November 2006 this is what Bernie had to say, “I wouldn’t deny it. Not for one second. I’m a democratic socialist.”
“In Norway, parents get a paid year to care for infants. Finland and Sweden have national health care, free college, affordable housing and a higher standard of living.”
“Why shouldn’t that appeal to our disappearing middle class?”
Why indeed? I am going to tell you why and it is all factual.
My main argument stems from what is really happening in the Scandinavian countries. Not the glossed over fairy tales. So, before you feel the Bern and vote for Mr. Sanders, you should read “Dark lands: the grim truth behind the Scandinavian miracle.” Written by Michael Booth.
Michael Booth is from Great Britain and has lived within these countries. And his article is well researched among the experts living there.
Some of the information in Michael Booth’s article…
Denmark has the highest level of private debt in the world and uses the Black market to obtain goods and services. They also have the highest taxes and cancer rates in the world! In Finland, the leading death of men is alcohol. And in Sweden their alcohol is run by the State. Bye, bye Budweiser Clydesdales, because you won’t have anything to pull!
Can you see how a socialist economy is not working for these countries, and this is what you want for America? If you vote for Bernie, he will usher in the same collapse to America!
Oh yes, Hollywood and media moguls, just love the Bern.
Did you know that in Denmark television is 15-year-old reruns and documentaries? Not sure how you can sell the advertisers on the idea of paying for ads. So, aspiring actors had better not quit their day jobs. And when it comes time to reduce the media workforce like on air personalities, producers, assistants, cameramen; hopefully they saved some of their capitalistic salaries.
I could go on, but I won’t. You will have to read the article.
All I will say is that throughout history the socialist governments have only ended up in turmoil and then downfall. Which usually leaves the way for a dictator to be ushered in like Hitler.
Speaking of Hitler, one of my favorite movies is “Tender Comrade” from 1943.
In it four American war-time women are working in the factory and they get together to rent a house. A German lady answers their ad for housekeeper and she tells them she needs no pay. Because these women’s husbands just like hers’ is fighting against the Nazis.
The women tell her they run the house like a democracy and will vote on how to pay her. During all of the discussions, she tells the women that once in Germany they had a democracy. Then, one of the women says, “And you lost it.”
“No!” she declares, “We murdered it!”
Are we murdering America by accepting any other government than a democracy? I believe so and we are stabbing her right in the heart!
Don’t believe me, you do the due diligence. Go back to the history books, research the socialist governments operating today and you decide.
I did and it was very eye-opening.
Bernie Sanders is not the answer for America!
