We’ve all heard the dire warnings about the evil Socialism and every time someone suggests something that benefits America’s people, the talking heads all start exploding, SOCIALISM!
What does this mean for the US? What happens if we let SOCIALISM invade our country? Hold on to your horses, but it’s already here.
Socialism is a type of government bent on providing things to allow the citizens (society/SOCIALISM) to improve their lives and their country. In many of today’s countries, this includes things like free education, including college, a guaranteed minimum living wage, housing, and health care.
When did Socialism invade America? It was introduced when our country was created. Listen to the first sentence of the U. S. Constitution:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Every one of those six items (Justice, Tranquility, defence, Welfare Liberty, better country) are hallmarks of Socialism. You can’t find better proof that our founding fathers wanted a country with Socialist ideals.
So next time you hear some ignorant fool spout about OMG SOCIALISM! remember this and feel free to tell them to shut up.
