I get a kick out of the lies that come out of these socialists mouths with all their promises of free stuff but on the other hand it is very worrisome to me as to how many Americans believe them especially now that you have a front runner in Bernie Sanders after his third straight win in Las Vegas over his radical socialist Democratic opponents. Early on when Sanders was asked how his free health plan for all would be paid for he said that everyone would would have to pay a higher tax rate, really now! In one of the last interviews he had when asked he said he didn’t know, give me a break!
The following was posted by Paul J. Batura, published by Fox News: “After his term as California governor ended and before he became president, Ronald Reagan recorded daily commentaries broadcast by about 350 radio stations and heard by tens of millions of Americans. When I listened to a collection of these broadcasts recently, it sounded like Reagan was warning us about the socialism preached by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.”
“With Sanders’ victory in the Nevada Democratic caucuses Saturday – making him the current front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination – the words of warning from Reagan struck me as something more Americans ought to be aware of today.”
“Throughout his nearly five-year radio run, Reagan preached that the promises of socialism were lies. He noted that we often grow so accustomed to them, however, that we lose the fear of the ideology itself.”
“Socialists ignore the side of man that is of the spirit,” Reagan said back in 1975. “They can provide shelter, fill your belly with bacon and beans, treat you when you’re ill – all the things that are guaranteed to a prisoner or a slave. But they don’t understand we also dream, yes, even of owning a yacht.”
“When news broke of a school trying to ban hot dogs and root beer and force cafeterias to carry more healthful fare, Reagan said: “Do-gooders, busy-bodies and bureaucrats need to learn that people don’t like to be told what to do. Kids are kids and sometimes persuasion is better than dictatorship.”
“The citizens of this great nation want leadership, yes, but not a man on a white horse demanding obedience to his commands,” Reagan said. “I believe this nation hungers for a spiritual revival … to see government once again the protector of our liberties, not the distributor of gifts and privilege. … Government cannot be clergyman, teacher and parent. It is our servant, beholden to us.
“Reagan was right then – and his words remain just as true today.”
Early on in the Democrat Presidential campaign you also had Elizabeth Warren who has made her wealth with capitalism stressing the rich should pay for free health care but I haven’t heard that of late from her stressing that fact because you can take all the money from the rich and it would never pay for a health care system with a budget into the trillions. When you have socialists such as Sanders and Warren preaching one free program after another such as free student loans and pay off existing student loans there needs to be common sense applied here that there is no way to pay for all this free stuff without destroying the economic structure of the United States and in the meantime one thing they dont talk about is how do we keep up a strong military with not enough money to support it!
Back in 1972 the Democrat Party nominated Senator George McGovern to run against then President Richard Nixon and Nixon won 49 states and I am sure the American people would never vote in a true socialist and I would even call Sanders a communist. I trust that the American people will not give up their culture and destroy the Constitution over Sanders who continues to preach well-being with lies. This is no time for experimentation and I know President Trump is just waiting in the background saying bring the commie on!
The radical socialist Democrat Party has gone nuts for all Americans to see, they are all out of the closets now because there is no middle ground with all their candidates, they all have allowed themselves to succumb to the ideology of the radical left which is socialism and come November no matter who their candidate is they will get a well deserved licking from President Donald Trump!
Too bad that some people don’t listen.
They are overwhelmed with that word “free”.
John, unless someone provides something for free, there should be no expectation of getting free stuff.
Many people that are collecting this so called free stuff do not realize that they have paid for it in one way or another.
