Socialism Has Arrived

Socialism Has Arrived

Dear Friends and neighbors: in these days of increasing government control, how does one know when Socialism has arrived?

When you are told what you can and cannot eat or drink via Democrat sponsored legislation, that is Socialism. When you are told what you are to pay for health care, who your doctor is and what is covered by the federal government, that is Socialism. When you are encouraged to feed off the nipple of the federal government for food stamps and not fend for yourself, it is a way then to control your behavior, that is Socialism. If you don’t behave and do what I want says Uncle Sam, then I will take away your privileges, that is Socialism. A carrot and stick approach to governing its people like a parent to a child, that is Socialism.

Another example of the arrival of Socialism is the Common Core Educational Curriculum where the federal Government creates and approves the curriculum which children are taught. Common core operates by carrot and stick. The state gets funds for teaching the federal government’s curriculum. What can be given can be taken away.

In all of President Obama’s diabolical wisdom on ObamaCare he said, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.” That mantra of lies was picked up by none other than Senator Jeanne Shaheen who said, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.” She has never retracted that and says it is working today. This was the beginning of the largest series of lies ever perpetrated on the American People and continues by President Obama and HHS Sibelius who say that ObamaCare is working, and that over six million people have signed up.
