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 ?

    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.

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