Socialism Destroys
Reason, by John Stossel

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 10/10/2018 12:36:18 PM

Socialism is hot. Famous actors recently made a commercial proclaiming that "democratic socialism" creates some of the best parts of America. It´s "your kids´ public school" (says Susan Sarandon), the "interstate highway system" (Rosario Dawson), "public libraries" (Jay Ferguson), "EMTs" (Ethan Embry), "workers who plow our streets" (Max Carver), and "scientists" (Danny DeVito). Wow. I guess every popular thing government does is socialism. The celebrities conclude: "We can do better when we do them together." There is sometimes truth to that, but the movie stars don´t know that America´s first highways

I had an a hole I work with corner me and tried to force me to accept Socialism using these arguments. He almost exploded when I pointed out that Cleopatra had libraries, fire departments a highway and public buildings. So did Cesar, Hitler, Emperor Hirohito, Stalin, King George, Alexander the Great, etc.

These twits think that Sweden is socialist. Capitalism with extensive social programs isn´t socialism and can work under the right circumstances. We are awfully close given SS, Medicare, Food Stamps, Section 8 housing, Medicaid, etc.

Socialism is a practice that draws in the poor who actually believe they will share in government money, or the money of the wealthy, or have no clue where what they think they will get, will come from.

The wealthy who claim to believe in Socialism, think they will be the driving (appreciated) source making the rules including those who are excluded from those rules,

And of course those who are mentally unbalanced.

And of course those who see themselves as the ruling class, all of the leaders of the EU countries, and who promote Socialism in the first place.

These idiots flunk Political Science 101. Socialism is not public works financed by tax dollars. It is a political and economic system where the government owns and controls the means of production.

The lessons from history are vital to understanding the present political strife, which is why the leftist academic revisionists want to erase the study of both world and American history from everyone´s memory, including especially the recent past 100 years!! Now we see the results of this tragic omission of full & factual history.

The socialist academics seem to have brainwashed decades of their students with their radically divisive socialist propaganda for decades. Thankfully, not all have fallen for their bogus socialist PC spiel, but it is important to note that when those in each of their current, ´special interest,´ profane & sometimes violent mobs, cross the line into criminality and are arrested, they are discovered to be predominately those same lefty activist academic, ´profs,´ and their gullible student pawns who are unmasked. Current, ´academia,´ apparently now rooted & entrenched deeply into the violent ´60s-´70s socialist/communist agenda, has & is betraying the trust placed in them to authentically, ´´educate.´´ Then, joined in their destructive agenda by their grad pawns in hollyweird & the alphabets, the socialists are on the march & trying to lead their socialist parade, as it were. ...HOWEVER, fewer & fewer are choosing to blindly follow these riotous, ugly, socialist Pied Pipers!

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

How many of these Hollyweird people actually finished school or went to college? How many actually claim the US as their home country or have homes in other countries to avoid taxes on the money they collected from our citizens? How many send their kids to public schools or let them go to a library?

Politico had a nice summary of all the things the Democrats are promising to do if elected. It was the usual mix of authoritarian-socialism. 1. Single-payer health care. Single-payer health care. Isn´t that great? And only one payer! And I suppose that one payer won´t be any of us, right? In reality, of course, all of us who pay taxes (and none of us who don´t) will end up being the single-payer. They really should call it "single-doctor" healthcare, because once healthcare becomes "free", demand will overwhelm supply. As in Cuba, everyone will have a "right" to

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass), the pastiest white woman in the entire Senate, has long been a figure of fun for her claim to be the "first woman of color" to teach at Harvard Law School, owing to her "family lore" of holding Native American ancestry. It doesn´t exactly seem to check out based on looking at her, or asking around in the Oklahoma Native American community she claims to be part of. President Trump, of course, has had a field day with her pretensions, calling her ´Pocahontas.´ Now she´s come out after a long, long hiatus from those charges to claim

The entire Democrat establishment of Chicago was publicly humiliated last week after selling expensive ($200) tickets to a fundraiser in the grand ballroom of the Hilton Hotel downtown, only to have the “special guest,” Maxine Waters, missing in action, with no notice and no excuse. Representative Waters has titillated angry Democrats with her incitements to harass their political opponents, and her demands for impeachment of President Trump that began even before he took office. These outbursts won her the sobriquet “Auntie Maxine.” But based on her failure to show up with no notice,

What is it about restaurants and meltdowns of the leftwing elites? Is it time for a new dish, called the ´lefty-melt´? Seems that as Brazil´s presidential campaign goes into its final stretch with a strong likelihood of a Trump-like conservative named Jair Bolsonaro winning, Brazil´s elites are reacting the same way U.S. elites react to President Trump. Staff of Maní, an elite, chi-chi, oh-so-hip, cool and chic restaurant in Sao Paulo with an awesomely innovative menu, joined a leftist social media campaign against Bolsonaro on Instagram discouraging Bolsonaro´s supporters from coming to their restaurant.

Democratic presidential frontrunner hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren always prides herself on being the candidate of the little guy. In her old-fashioned granny suits with her old-fashioned glasses, she speaks in a soft, syrupy voice and calls herself a consumer advocate. Naturally, there´s not a left-wing cause on Earth the Massachusetts Democrat won´t support, and of course, as a professional fake Indian with affirmative action professorships under her belt, an incongruous house-flipping history, an Imelda-sized wardrobe, and a big bankbook, she knows how to play the games, academic or otherwise. But she always portrays herself as

South Africa´s ruling party, the African National Congress, is taking steps to change that nation´s constitution and permit the seizure without compensation of land owned by white farmers. Notably, the leftists at the Southern Poverty Law Center demand that we avert our eyes from this situation because "white genocide" is a "dangerous myth." But there is already an ongoing epidemic of murder of white farmers. Statistics gathered by the private civil rights group AfriForum show this trend: The current constitutional measure would institutionalize the process

Two candidates running in California´s 49th Congressional District, comprising some of San Diego and Orange County, exemplify the huge differences between the parties. This is now a purple district, no longer red. Running for Darrell Issa´s seat are pragmatic Republican Diane Harkey and so-called Democrat Mike Levin. Levin speaks like a socialist, supporting issues such as Medicare for All while not saying how he would pay for it. There is such a sharp contrast between Harkey´s and Levin´s views. It comes down to what people consider the issues vital to them. Levin speaks of forcing President

I´m trying to work up some sympathy and I ... can´t. ABC executives reportedly are now saying that they regret firing the star of their hit comedy, Roseanne, who made a bad tweet and got canned for it. According to the Daily Caller: Two top ABC executives regret firing actress Roseanne Barr from eponymous hit show “Roseanne,” The Daily Mail reported Thursday. Barr was abruptly let go from ABC following an allegedly Ambien-fueled Twitter tirade in which she tried to draw a parallel between Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Barack Obama,

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Friday fired back at White House chief of staff John Kelly over reports from the day before that he called her an "impolite arrogant woman" in a 2017 email. "Absolutely most insulting conversation I have ever had with anyone,” Kelly wrote, according to BuzzFeed News. "What an impolite arrogant woman. She immediately began insulting our people accusing them of not following the court order, insulting and abusive behavior towards those covered by the pause, blah blah blah," he added, referring the Trump administration´s travel ban.

Peskov told reporters on Friday that if the developments in Ukraine “entered the sphere of unlawful activities” Moscow will protect the interests of Orthodox Christians just as it protects the interests of ethnic Russians and Russian-speakers. He was replying to a question on what Russia’s reaction would be if Ukrainian radicals start attacking and occupying places of worship that belong to the

When ABC fired Roseanne Barr from her eponymous hit sitcom because she tweeted something stupid about Valerie Jarrett, I was ambivalent. Yes, ABC overreacted. They set a huge pile of money on fire because they didn´t want Woke Nation to yell at them. But they also knew the sort of person Roseanne is when they brought back her show. She´s been doing and saying crazy stuff for decades. It´s probably only a coincidence that it didn´t catch up with her until the crazy stuff she said was in defense of Donald Trump. Right?

Elizabeth Warren is very concerned that Americans will not approve of her dishonest scheme to leapfrog over competitors during her academic career. Elizabeth Warren claimed she was a minority “Native American” to get ahead in her career. Warren is a fraud and she is concerned it may damage her chances of becoming the next US president. In 1996 the Harvard Crimson identified Elizabeth Warren as a woman of color and Native American. In 1998 Harvard bragged Elizabeth Warren, “who is Native American”, was their only minority tenured woman on staff. Hat Tip Chris-A 1997 article in the Fordham Law Review

Trouble. Trouble. Trouble. Singer Taylor Swift endorsed Democrat Phil Bredesen on October 8th in the Tennessee Senate race. Swift also smeared Marsha Blackburn with far left nonsense. But unfortunately Bredesen’s campaign has collapsed since the endorsement. James O’Keefe and Project Veritas caught Bredesen campaign staffers admitting that he has been deceiving voters and attempting to appear more moderate than he actually is. Bredesen, who was recently endorsed by Taylor Swift, has infamously claimed that he would have voted to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh — but his campaign says it is just a vote grab.

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that shows “strong evidence” she has Native-American heritage, rebutting President Donald Trump’s ridicule of her as “fake Pocahontas” while she signals a possible 2020 presidential run. Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, said last month she would take a “hard look” at running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Trump in 2020. She and Trump clashed frequently through the 2016 presidential campaign and Trump has cast aspersions on her claim to Native-American ancestry. “When I decided to run for Senate in 2012, I never thought that my family’s Native American heritage would come

It´s a troubling fact that puts our nation´s future in peril. The data come from Judicial Watch´s Election Integrity Project.

Washington is in another frenzy over the disclosure that President Trump’s lawyers are preparing answers to written questions from special counsel Robert Mueller. Observers are speculating on the meaning of this move, as anticipation grows for the investigation’s culmination. If the suspense is killing you, a bigger surprise may await. The most significant aspect of this story may be what it did not contain: questions about obstruction. Mueller is asking about Russian collusion, rather than the driving force behind his appointment after the firing of former FBI director James Comey. Indeed, ample reasons exist to question whether

Four people were arrested — Leticia Sanchez, Leticia Sanchez Tepichin, Maria Solis and Laura Parra — after being indicted on 30 felony counts of voter fraud, according to a statement from the Texas Attorney General’s Office.
