I am anti-Socialist/Communist

Why I am so anti-Socialist/Communist

I have been asked many times, (More times than I care to count) given my current financial circumstances, why I am so Anti-Socialist/Communist. Well the answer is simple, because I love freedom. I want the freedom to choose for myself what I will do, if I want to become rich I can. If I want to stay the way I am, that is my choice as well. If I choose to believe there is a God, or if I choose to believe there isn't, I am free to do that. If I choose to speak on anything, I may do so without the fear of being attacked. You see under a Constitutional Free Market/Capitalist system, I have that freedom. I have the freedom to fail or succeed, if I have the skills and determination to succeed. But if don't have them, then I will fail. In a Free Market/Capitalist system it's all on me, fail or succeed, it's all on me.

Take this platform that we are using right now, for example...

If I am able to write an article that is good enough, it will be published. To date, I have submitted five articles to be published on this platform. Of those five, only two have been published. This is the essence of the Free Market/Capitalist system, if your skills meet the standard you will succeed. In a Free Market/Capitalist system, if you don't have those skills you can do one of two things.

1. Find a school, (Either Vocational or College) to learn those skills.

2. If you cannot afford to go to either of these schools, then you can get a job in the industry as an apprentice and learn from a Master Journeyman.

You see in a Free Market/Capitalist system, the skill and experience of the worker will determine how much they will get paid. In this system there is equal opportunity for success, if you are willing to pay the price for it. In a Free Market/Capitalist system, everyone has the same chance as everyone else. Whether you be rich or poor, young or old, it doesn't matter. It doesn't even matter what color your skin is, or your gender. Who your parents are means very little, all that matters is your determination to succeed.

A few years ago I watched a movie, in this movie the main character was speaking to his son. I don't recall the entire speech, but I have remembered this part because it stuck with me and resonated with me. Here is the part I remember,

"If you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth, but you've got to be willing to take the hits."

If you want to succeed, you must be willing to pay the price for it. You have the same opportunity to succeed as Donald Trump, whether or not you do, is up to you. the only thing that is not guaranteed in a Free Market/Capitalist system, is the outcome.

On the flipside of that, is the Socialist/Communist system. In this system, success is never guaranteed, unless you are part of the Elite-Politburo. We have seen this in every country that has either practiced it, or is still practicing it. North Korea, Venezuela, almost the entire Continent of Africa, parts of Asia. They all have one thing in common, they all practice Socialism/Communism.

Under this system the people live in squalor, while the Elite-Politburo live in the lap of luxury. In the Countries that practice Socialism/Communism, the people starve and live in rundown shacks. They are force to eat the most revolting food, just to survive. Daily life is a struggle, a fight just to live another day.

A real good example of how Socialism works, is the South American Country of Venezuela. Venezuela was at one time one of the richest nations in the Western Hemisphere, mostly due to it's oil industry. It could boast, (And rightfully so) the highest quality of living standards in South America. The only countries in South America that may have rivaled Venezuela's economy, was Brazil or Argentina. I will even admit and concede, (All be it grudgingly) Venezuela's economy even rivaled the United State's economy. But in 1999 when Hugo Chavez became President, it all changed. Now the once great and oil rich Nation of Venezuela, is nothing like it was. Her people now live in squalor, while the Elite-Politburo live in the lap of luxury.

This the way Socialism is, it promises heaven and delivers hell. It promises an utopia, but delivers hunger, poverty, death and oppression. Through out the history of man, Socialism never works in the long run. I will never contend that the Free Market/Capitalist system is perfect, no system is. But at least under a Free Market/Capitalist system, a person does have the opportunity to rise up out poverty and make it big. Under Socialism/Communism, Democratic or otherwise, you can't.

This is why I will never support anyone, who wants to make the Sovereign Constitutional Republic of the United States of America a Socialist/Communist country. As long I draw breath, this country will never become a Socialist/ Communist country.
