To convert a capitalistic system of government is a step by step progressing. You heard the saying that the United States is going to wake up one morning and find itself a complete socialist state. This is done very slowly, one program, one new law at a time until one day the American people will say, “what happen?’
The first president to show disrespect to our Constitution was Woodrow Wilson, Democrat. Woodrow Wilson became President in 1912. In 1908, as president of Princeton University and prior to ascending to the Oval Office in 1913, Wilson authored a treatise titled “Constitutional Government in the United States”.Yet, Wilson wrote not of the Constitution as is but as he wished it to be—that is, denuded of its carefully crafted limits on the central government.
Wilson asserted, “ No doubt a great deal of nonsense has been talked about the inalienable rights of the individual, and a great deal that was mere vague sentiment and pleasing speculation has been put forward as fundamental principle.”Clearly, Wilson dismissed not only the Declaration of Independence and the Founders’ announced purpose for American independence, but the Lockean exposition on natural law, the nature of man, the social compact establishing the civil society, and the essential ingredients of constitutional republicanism.In short, for Wilson, rights are awarded or denied the individual as determined by the government.pg189
What is ironic is what saved our country from Wilson was World War l. Woodrow Wilson was a hard pacifist. His pet project was to get The League of Nations active, which never happened. He suffered a stroke in office I believe because of the pressure of the war, which in turn he lost much of his activeness, and in the process was not able to implement any of his ideology.
America was speared until here came President Franklyn Roosevelt. I will call Roosevelt the father of Socialism in America.
There is no denying Roosevelt’s revolutionary fervor. Whereas the Founders broke from tyranny, Roosevelt and the utopians broke from the Founders. Cass Sunstein, a former academic now employed by President Barack Obama as administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Office of Management and Budget, in 2004 wrote approvingly that “America’s public institutions were radically transformed under Roosevelt’s leadership.The federal government assumed powers formerly believed to rest with the states.pg205
Whittaker Chambers, who had been a member of the Communist Party USA, Soviet spy, proponent of the New Deal, editor at Time magazine, and who later condemned communism and the New Deal, wrote in his 1952 autobiography, “Witness, “I had to acknowledge the truth of what its more forthright protagonists, sometimes unwarily, sometimes defiantly, averred: the New Deal was a genuine revolution, whose deepest purpose was not simply reform within existing traditions, but a basic change in the social and, above all, the power relationships within the nation.It was not a revolution of violence. It was a revolution by bookkeeping and lawmaking. Insofar as it was successful, the power of politics had replaced business. This is the basic power shift of all the revolutions of our time. pg207
The socialistic attempt and planting of the first seeds to socialize America was the Social Security program submitted by Roosevelt. Do you think for a moment that Roosevelt did this because he cared about the well-being of Americans He installed it as a first step towards implementing socialism. This was done as a first step for the people to rely on the government. The United States had depressions and recessions in the past. People relied on family’s, churches, neighbors and donations to get them out of economic difficult in the past. The average age in those years of life was 60 years of age, why do you think Roosevelt made it 65? How about maybe keeping the money in the U.S. Treasury. Nobody came close to envision in those days that someday the average age would become in the 70’s.
Since then we have had Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, and the list goes on. Now we have Obama Care. (maybe)The liberals are very angry and worried about this law. This law was suppose to commence smoothly at its implementation date, another law for the complete socialistic take over of the United States until the web-site crashed and the people started finding out that they will be losing their Doctors and insurance policy’s, that it will remind people that government is no match with the private sector. Liberals are very worried that the American people will realize that this socialistic government has strayed from our Forefathers and what they envisioned for our great country. What Obama envisions for America is a complete socialistic take over. Come on America, wake up, we cannot allow Obama and his cronies to take over the United States of America.
