Socialist-Communism Comes to America’s Capitalist Democracy

Communism

A system of social organization in which all economic and social activity is controlled by a totalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating political party.

Random House Unabridged 2006

Socialism

1. Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.

2. The stage in Marxist-Leninist theory intermediate between capitalism and communism, in which collective ownership of the economy under the dictatorship of the proletariat has not yet been successfully achieved.

American Heritage Dictionary

The above definitions are for the people who throw around words without truly knowing their intended meaning. I read dictionaries often and can find a new word each day that I thought I knew, but didn’t.

America, a nation founded on a principle that human kind should be free to make its own choices, whether good or bad, as long as it didn’t interfere with another person’s right to do the same. What would it take to make America turn on its own heritage? What would make a land that grew prosperous on letting the marketplace dictate price of goods and services and letting people choose for themselves have to endure to turn 180 degrees and lock down the ideals that have worked for hundreds of years? What would make our nation of individual liberty and responsibility change to state rule and government micromanagement? The answer is a simple one syllable word; gas. Gas prices have driven America over the deep-end. Instead of putting their money where their mouth is and buying mo-peds or scooters or electric cars, ticked off consumers are following a witch-hunt for Big Oil. The news media and political opportunists are using the outrage to push the most socialistic ideals we have had since the New Deal. Grabbing at profits from free-enterprise, putting overburdening legislation on industry, and curtailing any efforts to find more oil are just some of the new madness. Instead of “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”; America is spawning a generation of “When the going gets tough, find a scapegoat, and sue, legislate, regulate, and demonize them into ruin.”

Big Oil didn’t get Big by asking the government to make us buy the gas, plastics, and other petroleum products that we take for granted every day. In fact, if you are reading this you are on a computer connected to the world’s other computer systems; ALL OF THEM ARE MADE WITH OIL! Try to get rid of all oil in your life, just try; even if you succeed you are still in the borders of a nation guarded by an army that runs on oil and keeps you safe. Even today, I heard passers-by saying “It’s not that there isn’t enough money; It’s that the wrong people have it all.” So, comrades; let’s just take it from “the wrong people” and give it to the “right people.” I’ll bet someone out there thinks you are part of the wrong people; so be careful on who you steal from today; tomorrow they might just steal from you.
