Socialism Has Never Worked, It Has Only Destroyed; It Will Always Destroy and That Will Never Change

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

Venezuelan Food Lines

Venezuelan Food Lines

Then and Now - Before and After Socialsim

Venezuela is Spanish for little Venice.

Explorers found the land exquisite and rich in resources; petroleum, diamonds, gold, copper, marble, vast forests and on and on.

Described as “a Republic”, back in the 60’s, they’ve faced many obstacles over the years; border issues, a constitution which has been ignored and re-written time and time again.....often on the whim of a dictator!

Venezuela has come so close to Independence, they’ve had boom times, only to end up with a Chávez or a Maduro.

Today...The United Socialist Party Of Venezuela...has only brought more hardship and more despair.

  • Yes, they really do have long lines for basic necessities
  • Yes there really is a toilet paper shortage
  • Yes they do have nasty water; as they are forced to look to those for assistance, that brought them to their...reality!

Cuba....once called the “pearl of the Antilles” because of its breathtaking beauty.

At one time, the most prosperous Nation in Latin America, with farmers and farmlands and a healthy sugar cane crop....until Fidel Castro seized that industry.

Rich in resources; iron, nickle, copper, silver and on and on.....

Prospectors discovered oil there in 1954, but...Castro seized all control of that too.

Production in all areas declined, there were food shortages....food was rationed and thousands of Cubans fled Cuba for the United States, as we all know.

Today, Cuba is not thriving, the conditions for Cuba’s citizens are not improving, any good news for them is that they’re finally, no longer ruled by a Castro, (other than over their military) and yet, Cuba is still a Communist Nation.

Now ruled by, Miguel Diaz-Canel and he too embraces the ideals of Marx, of Castro, of socialism and he has proudly vowed, “communism will go on” and even so, here in the States...Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and other socialist/communist Dems, glam it up to make it look pretty, talk it up to have it present well.



Socialism Never Works.....

You have more than likely, heard the names Charlie Gard and Alfie Evans....but have you heard the name Oliver Cameron?

They all have something in common:

  • They are all baby boys
  • They were all denied continuing treatment in the United Kingdom
  • They are all young victims of Socialism

However, of the three, only young Oliver Cameron, has beaten the odds that were stacked against him, from the day he was born.

With a lot of help from their friends, from strangers and from the United States of America, baby Oliver's family was able to break through the restraints, the maze and the hopelessness...that is Socialism, in order to get to America, in order to save their child.

Oh, can't forget....the UK eventually allowed for it, because they are in charge of such decisions, not families.

It is a shame that although baby Charlie and baby Alfie's families loved their children equally as much and fought, equally as hard, they could not break through.They and their babies.....lost their battles!

Socialism stood between these Parents and their children and that should never, ever happen.

The God-given Rights for making life and death decisions, for one's own flesh and blood, belong exclusively with the Parents, but Socialism stood between these Parents and their children and that should never, ever happen.

I pray for the families of baby Charlie and baby Alfie and I pray that baby Oliver will have a long, productive, safe and happy life and I, for one, will not give the UK one ounce of credit.

Ronald Wilson Reagan - The 40th President of the United States

Need more convincing?

We need not look any further than Cuba, or Nicaragua, North Korea or Venezuela, or China....oh wait, you think I've gone too far by mentioning China? China seems to be going along swimmingly...China has been leaving Socialism behind...they are "coming around", you may be hearing often, that is what I've been hearing, but toward what...

Marxism?

Marxism by way of Socialism?

I guess when you think about it...for about one nano second...that's not much of a stretch!

China may not be as mysterious as North Korea, nevertheless they are a very private and very secretive people. However, it isn't a big secret that China's current President Xi Jinping, is fascinated by Karl Marx; he is a follower, a fan, a seeker.

If China were truly, "coming around", if things were truly "going along swimmingly", the leader of China would be fascinated; a fan, a follower, a seeker, of our Founding Fathers...not of Karl Marx, the Father of Communism, the Father Of Socialistic Principles.

When I think of Marx, I think of his students; Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and more modern day, Castro, Chavez, Maduro, all equally dastardly.

  • How could anyone ever be infatuated with the Father of such wickedness?

There’s a give and take system currently residing in China. For example; they give you higher wages, they take away your free healthcare. Healthcare there is far from free and...it is also very limited!

They are already in dire straits, they've focused on state-care, with zero investment in private care and their current President is drawn to the dark side, fixated on Karl Marx!

If Jinping continues down the path he is currently on, his fascination with Karl Marx, the citizens of China will be judged on a merit system; many will fall short and will be left behind, seen as unworthy...a weeding out process, one might say, awaits them.

We've heard all of this before!

All individuality, uniqueness, certain attributes, which set one individual apart from another...tossed aside and for what?

The Chinese citizens are at the mercy of their all-powerful Government, currently headed in an even more precarious direction.

Thank you Founding Fathers for our system of checks and balances which:

I agree. Stay cool.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 22, 2018:

Interesting.

I will have to look at it as helping in the long run Brad, because I am tired of cringing at all that passes as normal these days!

It is hot in CA as well. Welcome to Bizzarro World There may be some good news with the rising of the socialist. Socialism is closer to the left and as such it could bleed off votes from the left and that benefits the non left, non socialist.

Socialist

SO CIA LIST interesting breakdown of the word.

Hi T, Brad -

Although Socialism exists, it has never been popular here in the U.S. of A .....we've always seemed to know better!

Maybe it's not as popular as certain 'News' outlets are making it out to be, but, just the thought of there no longer being a stigma attached to it...is cringeworthy!

A cold chill just ran up my spine just thinking about it and it 'feels like' 106 today in Central Florida. :(

Thanks, I will add some more words.

I understand that the socialists in America have a plan if they win. That plan includes a huge trade deal with China. They will have buy one billion items of assorted sizes and colors of socialist uniforms.

These uniforms will be color coded, sort of like the national defense against terrorists. These colors will be used for identification of the wearer. The reason for it is that every party has rich people that run it. Whether it is the democrats, the republican, the communists and so on. The rich want to know at a glance if they are looking a sheep and what level of sheep versus one of their own.

To accomplish this they will pass laws that mandate these uniforms as the only legal apparel. It is a more colorful uniform than envisions by George Orwell in his book 1984.

Communism, Socialism, Marxism all of these isms are not really working out around the world. Orwell wrote his book in 1948, and now in 2018 people are taking us back to the ideas that were then thought to be the future. Now that future is today, and that is the opposite of progress.

People just don't learn from history. It is like trying to save your kids from mistakes you made yourself. Yet, they seem to want to do it themselves, and this is handed down from generation to generation.....

Now I went really wordy and whiny:)

The Logician from now on on July 22, 2018:

Seven paradoxes of the socialist state:

Nobody works, but the plan is always fulfilled. The plan is fulfilled, but the shelves in the stores are empty. The shelves are empty, but nobody starves; nobody starves, but everybody is unhappy; everybody is unhappy, but nobody complains; nobody complains, but the jails are full.

One more, socialism is Utopia but citizens of socialist countries all want to go live in America while socialists in America won’t move to a socialist country...is a paradox!

Socialism is Socialisn't:)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 21, 2018:

Hi Pop, yes this 'tour' this duo is currently on and the media hyping it up into something new, fresh and exciting, is just a little too much to stomach.

breakfastpop on July 21, 2018:

Socialism alway fails. Idiots like Sanders and this new chick don't respect history. I have no patience for them or anyone who believes that a free ride is something they are entitled to.
