Imagine empty supermarket shelves. Starving children and families. Filthy hospitals without basics; things like aspirin or toilet paper. Pretty ugly right. These are the brutal realities of socialism in Venezuela.
Socialist regimes in places like Venezuela, Cuba, and Argentina have brought similar results to their people. In Cuba, 3,856 buildings collapsed over a 13-year period. In Venezuela, inflation is crippling, and the currency is worthless. There is a total disregard for individual liberty in these places.
Socialism doesn’t work. It causes the standard of living to go down. It reduces individual liberty. There has been refugee flight from all socialist nations whenever it has been tried. We have some choices to make.
What Americans support
The American people do not support socialism. None the less, deceptive leftist politicians attempt to market it. They call it the Green New Deal, Free College, and Medicare for All. We know there is no free lunch. You and I must put a stop to socialist momentum in the United States. Our future depends on it.
We must stand against the precursors to tyranny. We must say NO to:
- 70% tax rates.
- Guaranteed income for those unwilling to work.
- Government-run healthcare.
- The elimination of private health insurance.
- “Free college” that of course is anything but free.
- Government attack on every building, car, business, or industry relying on non-renewable sources of energy like fossil fuels or coal… NO.
- Every aspect of the “GREEN NEW DEAL” proposed in Congress. It is nothing but a cover for the socialist imposition of government control over every aspect of the economy and our lives.
These policies are being pursued by socialist politicians. People like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, and Kamala Harris. Most of the people on the stage for the DNC are socialists or pursue socialist policies. Together we must combat the radical leftist rhetoric.
It is on us to remind our elected officials that we the people reject socialism. We deserve the truth. Where our representatives stand we deserve to know. We require free speech, freedom of religion, free press, freedom of association and the right to petition our government for a redress of grievances. Our New Hampshire Congressional delegation, House and Senate must be accountable for representing New Hampshire.
New Hampshire’s hardcore leftist representation is now and has been working for the DNC. These professional politicians are increasingly beholden to these dangerous ideas. Many college kids think socialism is “cool.” The media is normalizing candidates who embrace socialism.
We, the average New Hampshire citizens, cannot give up. As Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than a generation away from extinction.” Today it feels much closer than that. Get active. Ask hard questions. That’s the best way to prevent bringing socialism to New Hampshire and America.
