Socialism is Government Control

Socialism is Government Control

Socialism is gaining popularity in America because of “a fundamental misunderstanding of what socialism means, in both theory and practice.” This Heritage Foundation commentary highlights this growing issue:

Socialism would put the government in control of business and the economy, including what people can buy and how much things cost. The free market would no longer exist.

Over time, the understanding of what socialism is has dropped. Just 17% of Americans recognize that socialism means government control.

The Left is pushing for government control by making promises for free government benefits and “equality.” In truth, as Amb. Nikki Haley often puts it, “If you go to socialism, everyone’s equal. Equal in poverty… equal in starvation.”

    Government controlled wages is a big win for socialism. Also a big way to increase Government spending. I think it’s like an addiction for Politicians and increasing minimum wage increases tax revenue. Not good!

    Socialism- aka communism. It is similar to the anti-Christ in that it starts its deception sounding like something people want but turns into a catastrophic ending.

    There is a big difference between socialism in which government owns and operates businesses such as related to communism and public benefit programs such as social security and Medicare insurance programs. Additionally, minimum hourly wage programs are not socialism.
    Also, disappointed that you ignore environmental issues and conservation of our national resources and protection of our planet as top priority issues among voters, including reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
    Are you against fuel efficiency for vehicles and State and Federal programs to protect water and air quality ?

      The fact that you believe in the “man made climate change” Hoax is proof of the globalists success in indoctrinating simple minded people into communism. There is no scientific proof that Co2 causes climate change. There is scientific proof that Solar (sun) and Lunar (moon) forces absolutely control the Earths climate. As they have from the beginning of creation. Actual science not political ideology.

    I support the goals of Stand For America. I need to know how and where any money I send will be spent. I do not wish to support highly paid administrators, assistants, and fund raisers. I realize these are needed. However, it must be kept to a minimum.

    There have been several posts by people who either still live in or have fled countries that are socialists, and are pleading with American citizens to make sure our country doesn’t become socialist. In socialism, there are the rich and there are the poor. The rich have everything and the poor have what the rich give them, if anything. I don’t understand how Americans can be so fooled into believing there is a different kind of socialism where everyone is the same and living happily forever. They must understand that once you give up your rights you will never get them back.

    Actually, top priority for MOST voters is to stop the socialist movement in America.
