I'm upset about liberalism creeping across America.
Lenin said the following:
• "The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency." (Barack Obama is doing a good job of that.)
• "The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses." (The media are liberal and biased — that's why Fox News is hated so much; they offer a different view.)
• "The goal of socialism is communism." (Liberalism is socialism.)
I see America following Lenin's ideals. Just look at the public school system — children are taught in groups; competition is discouraged; no one fails. This is liberalism at its best. Congress and Obama think people who disagree with their liberal agenda are right-wing crazies. I think they want our names and addresses sent to Washington. Gun control will be next.
The government is controlling every second of our lives. Government officials believe they know better than we how to "regulate" our daily activity and lifestyle. As long as we let them, liberals will continue to drag the nation down the road to socialism.
Liberalism equals socialism equals communism.
I do not want to live in a socialistic country. Elected officials need to remember that they are working for the people who voted them into office. They are mandated to uphold the Constitution and keep the laws this country was founded on. People need to remind them of that.
