Yo Soy Comunista - the United Socialist States of America


We here in Russia, Venezuela and Cuba welcome you to our Socialist club. With the passing of the “bail out” plan and the possible election of Obama America will be the newest member of far-left Socialist network of nations.

Soon America can look forward to complete redistribution of wealth. As our savior Karl Marx put it, FROM each according to their means, TO each according to their need. Soon, America will remove any incentive to strive and risk for a better life. Mother Government will provide all that a person needs. Those that try to work outside the system will be punished. Obama has already begun this system of punishment with his healthcare proposal that penalizes those that choose not to carry insurance or submit to the government plan. These people must be brought in line for the good of everyone.

Comrades, it is not the individual that counts not the protection of his or her property but it is the only the common good. Old ways of thinking that suggest the best way to provide for the common good is by protecting the individual and his property are over. The founding fathers of your country were wrong. Protecting the individual and his or her property only leads to corruption and greed. Those that hoard wealth are to be shunned and their property redistributed for the good of the people.

We urge all of our Comrades in the USSA (United Socialist States of America) to vote for Obama. Soon, you will no longer be burdened with the process of voting. The natural progression of Socialism is more government control. Your tacit approval now to Socialist agendas will be taken to mean permanent and total approval of complete government intrusion into your lives. In other words, the removal of the republic and your democracy.

In the future we hope to see government control of your energy infrastructure, housing, employment, education, and of course healthcare. The American Utopia is just around the corner. With the election of Obama you are on the path to true equality. Now, you are no longer merely born equal, but are mandated by government to remain equal.

Workers and Peasantry unite!!! Vote Obama for United Socialist States of America First Secretary!!!

Yo Soy Comunista!

Socialism vs. Diet-Socialism

With Central High School’s victories over Cheraw and Chesterfield balance has been restored to the way-of-things. Shortly after universal harmony was restored by Central regaining its place atop our county rivals a ripple was sent to Washington (obviously started by the Central High School VICTORY). Congressmen with constitution enough to stand up to the old establishment struck down the bi-partisan effort to once and for all time establish Socialism as our countries inevitable future. I am speaking of… the Bailout! Jim DeMint and a few others saw the economic bailout, supported by both Presidential candidates and the current Republican President, as a horrible idea and tantamount to trying to extinguish a fire with gasoline.

The cure for our economic woes will not come from more government interference in business, but less. There is NO historical precedent that suggests that more and larger government will fix any problem long term. NONE! Please show me the example where larger government and more interference resulted in a positive for the long term! Certainly not the “New Deal”. Look at entitlement programs now and the state of Social Security. Certainly not No Child Left Behind. Our schools still suffer. Our teachers hate the added bureaucracy that keeps them from actual teaching. What about the Sarbanes-Oxley Act that fixed yesterday’s “ENRON” problem but not today’s. It was just another hurdle that slick lawyers and accountants can easily by-pass. A substitution for market forces, the only forces that can actually correct economic ills. (Trick is, they work at there own pace.)

Laws are a necessary but insufficient part of our life. Necessary as a set of base standards of conduct and insufficient in that they are no more useful than the folks that enforce the law, administrate the law, and write the law. All prone to human frailty and failings. “There ought to be a law” is the vilest phrase ever uttered with the possible exception of “we are from the government and we are here to help!”

The greatness of our country does not lie in the fact that we are largest or the best, but rather in that we are the least. We have traditionally had the least government interference in our daily lives than other places on this big blue marble. And, when government interference was necessary it was proscribed in such a way that understood that the natural inertia of government was to grow beyond its usefulness into something counter productive. The “economic bailout” package was the I-Ching of counter productive-ness. It was the poster-child for big-government inertia gone wild. In its inertia it swept up democrat and republican alike. Few could break its hold. Few could understand that a little suffering now will help us down the road. What is best for me and you today might not be what is best for us tomorrow or our children’s tomorrows.

As our personal economic situations cause us pain this electoral season please remember who put us in this situation. I don’t mean, Obama or McCain. I don’t mean Democrat or Republican. I mean politicians. I mean all those elected to office that contribute to uncontrolled growth of our Federal Government. Politicians of all strips are to blame. And, those in power longest are more to blame. That means McCain has more to answer for than Obama. That means Graham has more to answer for than DeMint. That means Spratt should be kicked out of office as soon as is humanly possible.

WE are the only chance we have to fix our country. A Socialist President (Obama) and a Diet-Socialist President (McCain) can not be allowed to facilitate continued unchecked expansion of our federal system of government. No matter who gets in you had better be writing your President, Congressman and local paper demanding less government interference. Or, it will be more of the same. More Nanny-State, more Big-Brother, more Big-Government that you and I have to pay for.
