Socialism: A Means to an End

Never forget, socialism is not about compassion, it’s about control.

What I write here is admittedly theoretical, an opinion cultivated by trying to figure out the end game of those who seem dead set on turning America into a socialist nation, and, at least in my opinion, wittingly or unwittingly, serve a cause, that is neither being acknowledged or admitted to, but a shadowy end game that lurks in the enclaves of international politics and intrigue.

Obama told America that the manufacturing jobs that had exited America would never come back, yet he has been proven wrong. I have a hard time believing that an urbane, well-educated president who was privy to international economics and intelligence wouldn’t know what it would take to bring those jobs back to America and was naive enough to actually believe what he said, especially since his successor has made great strides in that direction in two short years.

Could Obama have meant that he didn’t want the jobs to come back, and if so, why not?

We’ll explore that possibility a little further on, but let me lay a little more groundwork here.

What has happened in every instance around the world when the people have either chosen or been forced to accept a socialist government?

Without going through the mechanics of the causes, I think we all know, they all turn into totalitarian, dictatorships with the hand full of elites in control, living in luxury while the masses suffer the results of a system that was doomed to fail from the day it was adopted.

The government controls everything, from the allocation of jobs and education to medical care, military conscription and distribution of food.

Nothing takes place without official permission which causes almost total dependence on the government. Nobody gets a say in who leads the country except the ones who already lead it and political dissension and protests are not allowed and dissidents can expect a midnight knock on the door.

In America’s case, if a socialist should be elected and had support in Congress, the transition would not come in one fell swoop, it would happen in increments.

How many people are on entitlements? How many people are already totally dependent on government for everything?

Now, having established the fact that millions of Americans have no income, food, housing, medical care or any of the other necessities of life without government assistance, let’s move on.

What if the government stopped sending the monthly check citing the violation of some arcane and meaningless statute and what would the desperate recipients be willing to do to start the flow of money again.

Answer: almost anything, agree to live where they’re told, send their kids to whatever school, etc…

Now, admittedly, entitlements don’t affect all citizens and they do not give the government total control over the whole population, but let’s take health care.

What if the only way to see a doctor or have needed treatment was through a government bureaucrat who looked at you like a side of beef, having no medical training and no compassion and was only capable of dispensing “take a number, take a seat” type attention to your medical problems.

What happens then? You and your loved ones are at the mercy of a cold machine of a government entity with an “If you don’t like it you can lump it” attitude, so you have no choice but to get in line and hope for the best.

How about the price of gasoline and electric power?

What if the sitting Congress and Senate pass a law that a president can stay in office for twenty years and a packed Supreme Court would uphold it?

The point I’m making here, with a modicum of facetiousness, is that you cannot go down the road to socialism without giving greater power to the government, actually total power, because the whole idea of socialism is giving everything to the government and letting them dole it out as they see fit, putting massive power into the hands of unscrupulous people who have proven they are not above corruption or playing favorites.

They abuse the power they have now, what would they do with this kind of control.

And what would you do if you woke up one day and found out that the president - with unanimous approval from both houses of government - had joined a world organization of nations with their headquarters in, say, Brussels.

The answer is you’d scream and holler but there’d be little else you could do, because you’ve given control of your life and your country to a cabal of globalists in DC who slipped in through the back door, their hands full of shiny gifts and promises of free healthcare, free college, guaranteed wages, a cradle to grave carefree Utopian life with nothing to worry about but breathing.

Do you think this couldn’t happen in these United States?

What could the people of Russia have done if Stalin, Khrushchev, or Putin for that matter joined such a world organization? They have no way to fight back, no recourse and the same is true of China and any other communist dictatorship.

A totally in control government can do anything it wants to, and if they decide to be part of a one world government, the disenfranchised, disarmed public could do little but complain.

Global government is not just a theory, it a very real threat to every free person on the planet and the United States of America, with its passion for personal freedom and individualism is a fifty-pound fly in their ointment.
If you look it from the point of view of someone who didn’t much like this nation the way it is and thought the only way to make it better is an all-powerful monolithic government, and knows that the fewer jobs there are, the more government dependence there is. Is it possible Obama just didn’t want those jobs to come back?

As we all know, Hillary was a shoo-in for the 2016 election and the continuation of the initiatives the Obama administration put into place.

“The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.”

I know it’s a lot to think about, but if you love America, I would advise you to do some digging and make your own decision about these things.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

Calm down there Charlie
Not a single democratic candidate for president is advocating for socialism. What they are advocating for is fairness. Socialism is a range of economic and social systems characterized by social ownership of the means of production and workers' self-management. Democratic Socialism supports ideas such as labor reform and pro-union policies, tuition-free public universities and trade schools, universal healthcare, federal jobs programs, fair taxation that closes loopholes that the wealthiest citizens have found, and using taxes on the rich and corporations to pay for social welfare programs. How is this be a bad thing for America and American citizens?

Nick, You Are Delusional
Nick, Do you expect us to believe "Not a single democratic candidate for president is advocating for socialism."Have you listened to Bernie Sanders and AOC? Because if you were listening, you would hear the drumbeats of full-blown socialism. You stated what ideas that "Democratic Socialism" supports. Are you naive enough to believe that if Democratic Socialism were to root itself in our Republic that it would not evolve into full socialism? The Democratic Socialists of America ( is only the beginning of this evolution. What about the lesson learned in Venezuela? This was a nation that over 10 years ago was thriving. See how Maduro turned it into a socialist dictatorship where most of the people do not have "labor reform and pro-union policies, tuition-free public universities and trade schools, universal healthcare, federal jobs programs, fair taxation." As for me and many like me... I reject socialism or anything that resembles it.

One World Order
Amen, Amen & Amen Charlie, remember 09/11/1991 George Bush called for a New World Order where “in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the UN’s founders.” ......The UN is rotten to it's core 09/11/2001 Exactly 10 years later to the day, Muslims came to kill us carrying out 4 coordinated terrorist attacks......7 years later the US elects it's first Muslim President. 09/11/2012 with America's first Muslim president serving as commander in Chief a stand down order is given to our military as Muslims, in an act of war, attack and murder in Benghazi, Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.....not surprising from a sodomite who bowed down to our enemies. The ultimate goal is to do away God, Family,Private Property, Patriotism Marriage and all morality,. The way in which they do it is like boiling a frog, increasing the temperature a quarter of a degree at a time,so that the frog does not notice. Along with this they play words games that use words such as fair, equality, and redistribution.......just like the heathen try to tell us it is not right to judge, it is all lies from the pits of Hell.....nuff said God Bless Plowboy

Well Patrick - the idea that any socialistic program would lead to full blown Venezuela type socialism was stated in the past with respect to medicare. So - I suppose you want to abolish medicare. Or maybe you are one of those folks that are stating "keep the government out of my medicare" As far as a bureaucrat denying treatment to a patient - I can tell you as a physician that I encounter far more bureaucracy denying health care from private insurance companies in an attempt to maximize profit.

Agree with you 100% Charlie. People want free college, you ask them who will pay. They say the Government. I try and tell them the Government has no money, it is our money, but they don't want to hear. Keep up the good work and great music.

I appreciate your passion but I think its lost on Corporatism. Socialist Corporatism is right now. For the Corporations by the corporations has rewrote our constitution. “ socialism “ is a diversion not a real threat in this country. Divide and conquer.. corporations win :(

Donald Trump is a socialist, too.
Using eminent domain to take someone's land to install an oil pipeline is socialism. -- Tru Cola

Right on Charlie
This country dodged a big bullet on that Election Day when Hillary didn’t get in I’m afraid of what we all would have woken up to she was caught in so many out right lies it wasn’t even funny

Follow the $$$
The major front for socialism in America is NOT a group of business-hating idealists. Instead, it’s from the business world itself. Big businesses can afford to pay much bigger campaign donations than most people. Also, government programs, paid with taxdollars, involve the government using those taxdollars to pay businesses for their services under government contracts. -- Tru Cola

Once again, you are spot on. America has allowed others to indoctrinate our children out of fear for being " politically incorrect" Parents too busy to be parents that care what their kids do, read, see, or are around. leaving them prey for those to impose their agenda. I pray to God that there are still enough children brought up to think rationally for themselves for we need them to protect our great nation.

Love the Soapbox. I was a rabid socialist until about the age of thirty and then began 35 years of researching my political views. I am now a Conservative. One of the most potent game changer for me was studying The Frankfurt School Think Tank Marxists brought To the USA by Columbia University. Their strategy for destroying our nation , all capitalist nations , is plainly written by the group and easily obtained. Their methodology is called Critical Theory. It directs all socialists to direct their energies in their chosen fields to criticize the country and culture using their art work, or music, or literature . Even science now is being enlisted into critical theory . The universities and colleges are packed to the rafters with professors pumping this stuff into ignorant students, we don’t have a lot of time left to stop this. YouTube search Critical theory and Frankfort School then strap in.
