Left Never Gets It Right That Socialism Is Wrong

Left Never Gets It Right That Socialism Is Wrong

For all my adult life, I believed the Democrats said one thing, but actually thought something else. Why all of a sudden have the Democrats started to come clean and tell us what they really believe? Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., was at a campaign stop and made the following statement, "America was never that great."

You may ask why did he say that? The answer is that in his heart I think he has always believed it. For some reason now, he feels free enough to tell the American people what millions of Democrats genuinely believe but reluctantly have never said before.

Democrats have no agenda for the country going into the mid-term elections. Since the U.S. special counsel hasn’t produced any evidence of collusion on the part of President Trump or his campaign, the Democrats have no issue. They have decided to reveal their true beliefs in the hope that it will attract attention and swing votes back to the Democratic Party.

The darling of the Democratic Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tells Americans that she is a socialist running under the Democratic banner in New York.

Her message is in some ways similar to that of Gov. Cuomo. Cortez says that America is evil and socialism will make America fair to all. Further, she says we must give everybody who wants one, a free college education, free Medicare, free healthcare, the elimination of ICE, and no borders. Among the litany of many more things she wants to do, she also wishes to abolish the Department of Homeland Security.

In a new version of socialism, Ocasio-Cortez wants to take from the rich and give to the poor. The same story of redistribution of wealth in socialism has never been proven to work.

The modern-day socialists believe that the reason socialism has never succeeded in the past is that they did it wrong. Now, they think they know how to do it right. Someone once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again but expecting a different outcome.

Many, though not all Democrats, apparently feel the same way as Cuomo; they hate America. I wonder how it is possible that a nation that has sacrificed so much in defending freedom around the world could be hated so decisively by some of its citizens.

Why are the press and the Millennials warming up to the idea of a socialist government for the United States? Intellectual Takeout.org, a blog, posted an article by Benjamin Powell in which he makes the statement, "The economic track record of socialism is as dismal as its human rights record." "Socialist regimes — through executions, intentional starvation, and brutal prison-work camps— in the 20th century killed more than 100 million of their own citizens. In places such as Cuba, North Korea, and Venezuela, the atrocities continue."

I believe part of the problem is the American public education system and its decision to stop teaching our nation's history. Karol Markowica of the New York Post wrote an article, "Why schools have stopped teaching American history. In her article she says, "The National Assessment of Educational Progress showed that an abysmal 18 percent of American high school kids were proficient in U.S. history."

If you don’t know where you came from, then it will be difficult to find your way to the future. If several generations of American school children do not know the history of the United States, then I believe they will certainly find themselves susceptible to the influence of liberal professors at the college level.

The Heritage Foundation.org's The Daily Signal.com posted an article by Natalie Johnson in which she claims some additional facts that should be disturbing to us proud Americans.

The ratio of liberal to conservative professors on American college campuses is five to one.

Addtionally, she reports that in 2014, 60 percent of professors identified as "liberal" or "far left," according to the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA.

The Institute indicated that in 1990 the percentage was 42 percent.

One last issue: the teachers and the press through their liberal biases have had control of the narrative in the U.S. for several decades. Some Republican presidents had capitulated to Democrats when they mustered the press to attack them.

Over that time, the Democrats became very powerful; that is, until Donald Trump became president. From the time he announced he was running, and since he has been president, he has attacked the monopoly these two forces have brought forward against him.

The president was duly elected under the rules of the U.S. Constitution, and the liberal left and the press are going through the equivalent of drug withdrawal and are coming to grips that they no longer are in control.

Do you want an example of how the views of American people are changing, concerning their own history? Look at the success of DNA testing companies such as Ancestry.com or 23andMe.com that are helping people find and save their family histories.

You see in America, our family histories are the history of America.
