Socialism

Are You A Socialist Test

If you scored 100 percent in agreement, then you can legally attack supporters of President Trump outside the White House and you are a Democrat in good-standing. Therefore, you can get secret funding, have all your bills paid, and stay in 5-star hotels while flying around the country burning down buildings – all paid for by a former Democrat presidential candidate.

Biden–Harris Too Weak to Resist Socialist Wing of Their Party

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Gradually, or perhaps immediately, the left would get their way in Biden and Harris’s administration, should they be elected. It’s hard to see another scenario. And then it will keep going further … and further … as such things do. Which makes Election 2020 that “most important ever,” the last bastion of capitalism if you happen to think, as I do, that it’s vastly superior to socialism. What it comes to is this: Whether we like him or not, whether we see him as ironic or heroic or both, Donald Trump is now the defender of Adam Smith over Karl Marx. He’s our last, best hope.

Dr. James Dobson: America's Civil Wars - Then And Now (Part 3 of 3)

In the final part of this 3 part series Dr. Dobson says, "I plead with you to register and vote in this presidential election. I won't try to tell you who to vote for because you can figure it out for yourselves. But I will suggest how you might evaluate the situation we face. I'll close with seven critical issues that have stunning significance for the nation. Please think hard about them, and then go to the polls."

Bernie’s Solution to Full Employment

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Let us face the fact, Bernie. The case for socialism is bleaker now than it ever was. The reason is that by now it has been tried all over the world, and it is a bust. A humanitarian bust, and an economic bust — in every respect it is the God that failed. Before the Soviet Union fell, the Soviets had turned every country that they controlled into a prison and every economy that they controlled into a poverty zone. Africa and South America were only marginally better off. Where today is the economic model for viable socialism? Is Bernie summoning up Venezuela? How about Cuba? Actually he is pointing to Cuba. The young people of Cuba have shiny white teeth and they can read, he claims.

Something Socialist This Way Comes?

Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

Bernie did not lose as a result of an establishment cabal’s dirty tricks. He lost because of a people’s revolt against socialism. Capitalism works for men who do. Socialism works for men who don’t. In the United States in 2020, the unemployment rate reaches just 3.6 percent. People intuitively grasp that a socialism that full-throatedly promises free stuff admits in more muted tones that such giveaways require free labor. Sanders, an intractable ideologue, stood his ground. That consistency, courage of convictions, and authenticity that drew admirers proved his undoing. Like the rigid ideology he advocates, Sanders lacked the ability to adjust. Bernie Sanders’ dream never dies.

Ripping the mask off of Bernie Sanders' democratic socialism

Robert Knight, Washington Times

Extremely few American activists and politicians openly admit to having communist ties — not even Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the left’s poster girl. Yet, the truth is that the radicals who now control the Democratic Party are working toward the same goal that communists have pursued since the 19th century — public ownership of the means of production. Karl Marx put it this way: “The theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.” You never see socialists, progressives or even liberals working to reduce government. They increase it until they’re stopped. The left has been working on this in America for decades. But now, the mask is off.

Next Democrats Will Be Tearing Out Their Hair

Normal people in outside-the-Beltway America are wondering what’s going to happen next after Pelosi tore up her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union speech and the Senate acquitted the President of all charges in the Democrats’ articles of impeachment. We predict the tearing of hair, accompanied by ashes and sackcloth when Democrats absorb the latest economic news.

Time To End The Corrupt Iowa Caucuses

This is the third time in a row the Iowa caucuses have been corrupted, twice by Democrats and once by Republicans. It is time for the Republican and Democratic Party national organizations to end this corrupt scheme to enrich the Hawkeye State’s political class and media companies.

He’s Not Even A Good Socialist

The media, being intellectually lazy, if not completely ignorant of the tenets of socialism, has bought Sanders’ self-labeling that he is a “socialist.” On matters of compulsion and totalitarianism Senator Bernie Sanders is a good socialist apparently, but on the real core value of socialism – everyone performing socially useful work – Sanders is MIA.

Young People Ignorant of History

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

A recent survey conducted by the Victims of Communism and polled by YouGov, a research and data firm, found that 70% of millennials are likely to vote socialist and that one in three millennials saw communism as "favorable." Today's leftists, socialists and progressives would bristle at the suggestion that their agenda differs little from that of past tyrants. They should keep in mind that the origins of the unspeakable horrors of Nazism, Stalinism and Maoism did not begin in the '20s, '30s and '40s. Those horrors were simply the result of a long evolution of ideas leading to a consolidation of power in the central government in the quest for "social justice."

Bernie Will Confiscate Your Money, But Fortunately Not Your Guns

Senator Bernie Sanders said a mandatory gun buyback is essentially confiscation, which he says is unconstitutional. However, lest you be fooled into thinking that the old Socialist warhorse has suddenly revealed a newfound affection for private property you’d be wrong, because, while Sen. Sanders may be opposed to confiscation of your firearms, he still wants your money.

History Has Shown That Socialism Isn’t the Cure

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Add up a lost generation of woke and broke college graduates, waves of impoverished immigrants without much knowledge of American economic traditions, wealthy advocates of boutique socialism, and asleep-at-the-wheel Republicans, and it becomes clear why historically destructive socialism is suddenly seen as cool. Regrettably, sometimes the naïve and disaffected must relearn that their pie-in-the sky socialist medicine is far worse than the perceived malady of inequality. And unfortunately, when socialists gain power, they don’t destroy just themselves. They usually take everyone else down with them as well.

Trump Fuels Rise Of Black Conservatives

Donald Trump’s campaign question to Black communities: What have you got to lose? Seems to have empowered a group of younger African Americans to run for office and offer conservatism as the alternative to the Democrats’ long record of neglect. And on Tuesday, Daniel Jay Cameron, one of the stars of this generation of Black conservatives, was elected as Kentucky’s Attorney General.

Democrats Debate Issues No One Cares About And Policies No One Wants

Based on the results of recent polls, racist pandering is getting Beto and Mayor Pete exactly nowhere. But lack of measurable impact didn’t drive the candidates away from talking about issues no one cares about and pushing policies no one wants and that was ultimately the overarching theme of last night’s Democrat debate.

Branding The Democrats: Trump And Rush Channel Viguerie

When this month’s Limbaugh Letter came out detailing Rush’s views on how President Trump has been branding the Democrats and it read like Rush and President Trump had read Mr. Viguerie’s memos and The Secret To A Trump Landslide. As Rush put it: It’s a marketing miracle!

Why Socialism, and Why Now?

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

When our schools and colleges do not teach unbiased economics and history, then millions of youth have no idea why the United States, Great Britain, Germany, and Japan became wealthy and stable by embracing free-market capitalism and constitutional government. Few learn why naturally rich nations such as Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and Venezuela — or entire regions such as Central America, Eastern Europe, or Southeast Asia — have traditionally lagged far behind due to years of destructive central planning. The handmaiden of failed socialist regimes has always been ignorance of the past and present.

Socialism: An Indifferent Government Made of Fallible People

Melissa Mackenzie, The American Spectator

The government is made up of people. People are fallible, frail, easily corrupted, vengeful, and generally rotten creatures. Put a bunch of them together, and the evil is multiplied. Socialism relies on the goodness of people and on their benevolent intentions. It assumes that when the environment is more equal, people will behave better. All of these premises are flawed. That’s why, when socialism (the softer word for communism) is implemented, it fails. Always. It’s why corrupt leaders like Putin, Xi, Maduro, and Chavez end up rich even as their countries founder and fail.

Socialism never?

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

In an attempt to reach Generation Z — those in their teens and 20s — a new organization is starting this month to combat socialism’s appeal. It’s called Young Americans Against Socialism (yaas.org), according to its site, a nonpartisan nonprofit “dedicated to exposing socialism’s failures to young Americans by creating viral educational videos for social media.” Its founder, Morgan Zegers, worries that “more than half of young people believe socialism should be implemented in America.” The reason, she says, is because many of them know little about it. Her campaign will be largely on social media where she notes young people spend hours every day.

Can The Democrats Beat Trump With A Campaign Of Lies?

We agree with Rep. Gabbard that, in a field of noted prevaricators, Sen. Kamala Harris stands out as perhaps the biggest liar, but the fact of the matter is the Democratic Party’s entire campaign against President Trump is based on lies.

Dem Debate: America’s Urban Poor Out – Illegal Aliens In

Last night’s debate offered little hope to America’s most desperate citizens and showed that having booked the African American vote, inner city African Americans are now just dust in the Democrats' rearview mirror, they’ve now moved on to servicing illegal aliens in the hopes of obtaining a new cohort of desperate clients eager for socialism’s phantom rewards.
