The Drumbeat of Socialism Is Drowning out the Ringing of Liberty's Bell and the Voices of Freedom

Ignore the in-my-face obvious issues and lend all of my attention to unwarranted, groundless non-issues? Not happening!

Inscribed on the Liberty Bell: Leviticus 25:10 - Proclaim Liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.

Inscribed on the Liberty Bell: Leviticus 25:10 - Proclaim Liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.

Which Proclamation Are You Hearing?

Socialism is resonating throughout this land, it's all the rage!

It is as if, something new, fresh, different and cutting edge has recently been discovered.

The drumbeat is so loud, the liberty bell...has been silenced, seemingly forgotten!

It has become so noisy, I am afraid all else is being silenced, as well.

Perky, know-it-all, proudly calling themselves socialists, think they have all the answers.

When it is all said and done:

  • What would they be willing to give up?
  • What would they be willing to yield to Government? (as if they'd still have a say)
  • Would they be willing to wait in long lines for hours, for limited items?
  • Once they understood what 'allotted' and 'allocated' mean, could they ever get used to the concept of that being the new normal?

I have to ask, those of you embracing socialism, currently living in this most prosperous Nation, with endless opportunity, the result of a free market system and American ingenuity, do you think it gets better?

The people are not controlled, we are free to create wealth.

(Government doesn't create wealth, the people do)

Are you okay with losing that?

So much more could be said on this subject.

By the time all would see the light, it will be much too late and there will be no going back!

Lady Liberty's torch is lifted high, as a beacon, so that a world may see...what LIBERTY looks like!

Lady Liberty's torch is lifted high, as a beacon, so that a world may see...what LIBERTY looks like!

We Got it Right, the Story of Us is the Right Story

Yes, the Liberty Bell has been through the ringer...

with each new ring, a new crack and so it has been unable to ring out for a long, long time, but if it could, I'm sure, it would ring out with the strength of a million bells all at one time.

Each ring, a reminder, to a Country which is losing its way, reminding us all of all we had to overcome, urging us to not behave as fools!

We, the people, the lovers of liberty, must have voices louder than the beating drum of socialism, we must take up where the liberty bell left off and wake up this sleeping Nation.

The drumbeat has gotten so deafening, since the election of Donald Trump that many people are covering their ears and shutting down.

Now is not the time to shut down, now is the time to talk to your friends, your classmates, your co-workers, your neighbors, to remind them to take a look around. Things are good, we are in a good place and things can even get better for more of us.

We cannot let the perky, clueless socialists dominate every conversation, receive every headline and become the story.

The story of us, who we are, what we stand for, what we will not stand for...that story, cannot change, it's the right story!

We got it right, closing in on 250 years now. Our Founding Fathers deliberately took much time in thought, prayer, debate, reflection, study, research, to perfect (or come as close as humanly possible) that which they handed down to us; a Constitution, limiting Government, placing all power with us, the People...and that must never be nonchalantly tossed aside for a program which has failed and failed again, fails still ….in other Countries, socialism!

Socialism is Detrimental to all Societies

You cannot google any subject without being taken directly to the leftist viewpoint, which is fast becoming, unapologetically, a socialist viewpoint, by design, to have you question, second guess, doubt your own instincts.

You cannot tune into the original major networks; NBC, CBS and ABC, without getting a left leaning slant on news stories and within the commentary of the day.

I cannot go to Facebook to post... without wondering if my friends will be 'protected from me' by Facebook, because Facebook has deemed me...a threat and so, my friends, will not see the words of their free thinking friend!

This should be a big deal to everyone of you, whether you are conservative, middle of the road, blue dogs, old school. It may not affect you today, but it may tomorrow and it definitely will in time, if you don't take a stand and help to shut down this dangerous socialist movement currently spreading throughout the States.

I challenge you to get involved.

Socialism is detrimental whenever and wherever it is tried!

The Liberty Bell can no longer ring out, spreading the message, but as the inscription states, "Proclaim Liberty throughout the land", that is instruction, from the Good Book, for you and for me.

Let us not be the silent ones, those that failed to spread that message, and lost what no other Country has ever been able to accomplish and sustain for such a long period of time.

Let us, at the very least, be a fraction as heroic, as those who came before!

God Bless and Keep these United States of America!

Brad, my prayer list is long.....

My faith and resolve is strong. :)

Brad on September 24, 2018:

AB

I am sorry, I must have shown my left side:)

Pray real hard for that miracle we are going down fast here..

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 24, 2018:

Bradley, wishes are for 3 year old birthday parties, I am praying for a miracle! :)

Brad on September 23, 2018:

AB

Thanks for the wish, but when voters in Orange County vote for Hillary, the fat lady starts to sing!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 23, 2018:

Yes because it wasn’t fictitious any longer, they couldn’t have a fictitious town......lol

I pray whatever is going in California, the spread will end very soon. Ya’ll need a big red wave to hit there and quick! How about this November? Not giving up on ya’ll.

You are correct about the Invasion of the Body Snatchers Movie being based in SF, but that was the remake of the original movie made in I believe 1956 and that was in a town called Santa Mira CA (fictitious)

Brad on September 23, 2018:

AB

It is even more bizarre about Jerry Brown. He was elected two different times as CA governor. One time in, I believe the 1960s when he was going with Linda Ronstadt. And then decades later to his current one.

Before him in the 1960s, his father was governor. So, the father and son painted CA brown.

Before his current Governorsip in CA, he was the Mayor of Oakland, and then the Attorney General for CA. And Kamela Harris followed him as AG, and now she replace Sen Barbara Boxer.

We are covered in Blue from top to bottom.

The democrat Mayor of SF is probably going to be the next governor, and I think he is going to make Brown look good, as he is going to be so bad.

The CA education system especially college is where so many of the new democrat voters are created. Along with millions of illegal aliens, and no one knows how many of them vote in our elections. But, CA does allow voter's to be ID.

The Logician from now on on September 23, 2018:

“How on earth”, that says it all! That’s it, AB you are a genius!

They aren’t from earth, it’s “The Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” Just like the movie it started in San Francisco!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 23, 2018:

I see Jerry Brown in interviews or some of his quotes in print from time to time and think to myself (or say it out loud to my husband).....how on Earth does a majority vote in the likes of him?

The Logician from now on on September 23, 2018:

I was wondering why the “progressives” love socialism so much since it is a proven failure and why they wouldn’t just go live in a socialist state since they say it’s so great. Then I thought how “progressives” always have an ulterior motive for everything they promote. “Progressive” politics is rooted in racism. Look carefully at most social or fiscal policies advocated by progressives and you'll see that underneath their false public rationales lie hidden racist fears and assumptions — some of which the “progressives” may be too embarrassed to admit even to themselves, much less to the world.

So there has to be an ulterior motive for “progressives” to advocate for socialism and then it hit me.

The ulterior motive is to give them an excuse to stay living in America! The excuse is they want to change it, because they know there is no better socialist country, not even close, that they would be happy living in.

I live in Orange County CA

"

For much of California, the November election marked another banner year for Democrats and many of the causes they champion.

Once solidly Republican areas like Orange County tilted to Hillary Clinton over Trump. Democrats took every county in Southern California as well as the entire coast, save for tiny Del Norte County at the very top of the state.

But Lassen and about a dozen other counties in the far northern reaches remained solidly red.

"

You have seen some of these democrats on hp. And even though Los Angeles, Hollywood and surrounding areas are 30 miles away, the virus has spread south to us.

The fact that google, and Amazon have a stronghold in Orange County may have contributed to the flip from Red to Blue.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 23, 2018:

Sadly, I know Brad.

How many Counties do ya'll have left that haven't turned blue?

Brad on September 23, 2018:

It is too late for Californians, as we lost that battle decades ago.

California is the epic center for the breeding of the left. Every generation has created new and more democrats father to the left.

The turn of the 20th century to the 21st century planted the batch of the left we see today firmly into the capital of the left. With 39 million people, and 55 EC votes they are reaching across the country to link up with their other pods. From Washington, and Oregon to Illinois, and most of the original colonies on the East Coast. They are like a political net trying to close their end points to capture the rest of the country.

It is like a bad sci fi movie.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 23, 2018:

Perish the thought....everyone needs to join me in Realville, Conservatism...it’s the only way to go.....even for Californians! ;)

Changing the United States of America (USA to

United States Socialists of America (USSA)

or

United Socialist States of America (USSA)

Would that mean that the dem (lefts) and the repub (rights) would then become really one party The dem (only far left of the old dem)

and the demrepub ( the new left replacing the old dem)

There would be no center, and no right of center.

The whole political universe would shift to the left and the democratic republic along with it.

How would this work?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 23, 2018:

Hi Pop, I think it requires some of both, in combination with the absence of common sense.

breakfastpop on September 23, 2018:

Socialism always fails. I can't understand how people like Sanders and Cortez can stand to see themselves in a mirror. They are either unbelievably dumb or ruthless enough to take advantage of people who are truly stupid.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 19, 2018:

I pray that it always remains that way Eric, that you and yours will always have plenty to eat and plenty to share.

I hope you’ll acquire even more great stuff to stuff into your garage, to keep for yourself or to give away....as you so choose!

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on September 19, 2018:

AB this is so unpopular on both sides. We pay a lot for health insurance and we pay huge taxes (CA). And we think that is much to do with socialism creeping into our society.

We don't care. No one in my place goes hungry or without shelter if they ask. Two cars and they are not in our two car garage 'cuz it is filled with more of our great stuff. And we are good at giving away.

I do in fact "need" a new car, which I would never buy.

I just do not think the sky is falling.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 16, 2018:

MP Southern....very cool handle! :)

Thank you for checking in, glad that you enjoy my articles, it's good to see you here on HP! I appreciate the support!

Such a great line, we are "free to prosper or to fail"....key word "free".

I will have to check out the book. Yes it is very scary!!

MPSouthern on September 16, 2018:

Love your articles. Just seen this one this morning when you posted a ? In the comments. Very strange.

I just read a book called Next Year in Havana. I have to admit I never knew how Castro came into power and never really cared to look into it but wow this book was very eye opening. How people can think they have it so bad and only to get something a hundred times worse.

Right now we are free to prosper or to fail but is this new generation really ready to turn over every aspect of their lives just to not have to think for themselves. It’s very scary.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 15, 2018:

Well, that’s good, I’ve wondered if it’s new algorithms or complaints or both that sent some of us plummeting.

I need to catch up on your hubs and a few others.

Brad on September 15, 2018:

AB

The good news is that I got this notification.

And I too have noticed some good people coming up flagged as spam.

Hubpages is acting too much like google. I suspect that last year when we were in the 80s, only to plummet to the 20s in a month of so, feels like that is when they switched to new algorithms. Maybe even ones from google.

I have been distracted from my gangs series, and gone on the Anti Trumper vs well me.

I could have titled them, "you won't believe what the AT just said"

:)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 15, 2018:

Hmmmmm....

My comments on other hubs seem to go into limboland sometimes or worse......spamville!

Also, a few times, I think I’ve not received comments from some of you guys and when I check, the comment has been tagged as spam.

Brad on September 15, 2018:

AB

One thing was strange, I never got a notification for your comment here. I had to actually find it to check?

You know when you comment, it automatically lets you follow, but not in this case?

I did check and the follows this Hub's comments box is checked?

hmmmmm!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 15, 2018:

Thanks for commenting Brad, I was beginning to wonder if this one was quickly buried, as is constantly the case on FB, especially when I am asserting my Conservative viewpoint.

Brad on September 15, 2018:

AB

When the left or the right controls the means of communication by filtering, stopping, or any other means of chilling free speech that is the main problem.

It is like railroad tracks, they take you wherever the one that laid down the tracks want to take you.

Google, Facebook and Twitter should be considered a communication monopoly and as such they need to be regulated as our the utilities and phone companies are regulated.

This wouldn't be an action against free speech, or regulating a business. It has to do with monopolies. And when there is no comparable way to avoid the monopolies we need to give people power to protect their privacy, their ability to equally shares speech unchecked by them.

This might even be similar to the way that the gambling commission makes sure that the games of chance are just that, and not leaning farther than the laws of probability for the game.

My point is that google, facebook and twitter can keep their proprietary algorithms, but they should be tested to ensure they are not being used to employ a hidden plan that results in bias.

It is very difficult as you say to find query results from google searches.

And everyone should have the same path to being heard on facebook and twitter. Employing Draconian punishment against people that obviously have a different view than that of the company is wrong, and I submit fraudulent because we are forced to agree to their policies even the ones that aren't mentioned in the agreement.

This is a take it or leave it force agreement. What then are your alternatives when having to leave it?

It is unconscionable!

:)
