If You Love Socialism or Communism that Much, Why Not Live In One?

The Right to own, carry, and possess firearms should NEVER be questioned for ALL Americans, not just Texans!

When I read the headline "School shooting may not bring change to gun-loving Texas," I said to myself, "...as it shouldn't!" (see the quote below).
There's a difference between a Democracy and a Republic. I know there are those reading this who will find it hard to understand, but the United States is NOT a Democracy, it's technically a Republic.

 School shooting may not bring change to gun-loving Texas | AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas has more than 1.2 million licensed handgun owners who can openly carry their weapons in public. The state hosted the National Rifle Association's annual meeting two weeks ago. And until Monday, the governor's re-election website was raffling off a shotgun. (click here)

The reason why our Founding  Fathers made it such is that in a Democracy it's quite possible to change a nation's laws in almost an instant by turning the hearts and minds of a majority of citizens away from those laws. When something like this takes place, there are those out there who automatically begin pulling at your heartstrings.

First, they have worked furiously to change the underpinnings of this nation from its true Republic form of government to that of a Democracy. They are working very hard to convince you and I that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights--the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution--are fluid, that they can be altered in an instant by a Constitutional vote, or some such nonsense.

The bottom line is, if you like Communism or Socialism that terribly much, there are a bunch of Socialistic and Communistic countries out there, so why not go live in one of them and leave the rest of us alone? You'd be happy (at least until you figure out the mistake you just made) and those of us who prefer freedom will be happy.

The Enemy Inside the Gate

It was in 1992, while listening to a speech given by then presidential hopeful Bill Clinton, that I found myself on an alternate path. Bill said, in essence, "If I and Al Gore are elected, we will eliminate the Constitution... it was a radical experiment that has outlived its time."

From my early youth to the age of 42 I was a socialist. It was in 1958 that I built my first shortwave radio. It was then that I began listening to Radio Moscow, Radio Havana Cuba, and other radio stations in Communist countries. At the age of 14 or 15 I began sending letters to Moscow.

After a life time of dislike for Capitalism, I suddenly came face to face with a Communist in our government who was about to become president of this country. I told my wife that Clinton is a comrade and that if elected he would turn our government upside down, which he did.

The turning point came for me later that evening when I, in the quietness of my own home, sat down and read the U.S. Constitution. This was probably the first time in my life that I seriously read it. What I found blew me away. As I told my wife, "I was duped."

My words to her were essentially this, "This document has protected this nation from subjugation by a foreign power for more than 200 years."

That was it for me. I became a Capitalist in a few minutes. Well, actually, I had already embraced Capitalism even as a Socialist by virtue of the business I once ran and the system I was involved with. At the time, in 1992, I was a trade journalist living and working in the Chicago suburbs. Now, I made it official.

When Clinton won the election in November of that year, I put a sign on my cube wall that said, "In Mourning." When management discovered that it was not a death that I was in mourning over, they ordered me to remove the sign or face the consequences.

So, because of my past involvement with Socialism and Communism, perhaps I have a unique perspective on the unique mindset of a leftist. Today, I see very little difference in what President Obama represents and the precepts and ideology of the Communists I listened to so many years ago on the shortwave radio. In a word, our enemy is inside the gates of our government and those of you who hail from the left do not know what you've managed to do by helping get his elected and by your current support.

If you should have any questions regarding this issue or any other, feel free to reach out and connect with me. You can do that by sending me an email at blogger@tpromo.com.
