The truth about modern-day socialism

Dear Editor:

Do not be fooled by Mr. Elliot’s view of socialism! The socialism that the Democratic party is not the socialism with the smiley face that brought electricity, telephones, and the Interstate system to the rural U.S. The socialism the Democratic party now embraces is the kind Bernie Sanders and now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want. They want free healthcare, free college, free housing and government paid wages and jobs! Google it! To the tune of forty plus trillion dollars, and they have no idea as to how to fund it all, other than taxing everything out of existence. There are some truths that I live by, two of them are: 1) Nothing is FREE. Everything gets paid for somewhere. If you didn’t pay for it someone else did.

2) A government big enough to give you everything you need can also take everything you have. Remember these two things when someone promises you “FREE STUFF”!
