America’s framers based our constitutional republic on individual liberty and by limiting government they have set forth conditions where anyone with an idea and ambition can swing for the bleachers. Your lot in life is entirely your choice and to believe your race, creed, sex or national origin locks you into a prescribed socio-economic slot is a lie. Sadly, progressives garner power by perpetuating this fraud. Colin Kaepernick, for example, is a rags to riches success story yet the ruling class has convinced him to lead others in taking a knee against some mythical discrimination. Would you abused multimillion dollar athletes answer me this: Where do you plan to sell your skills once you bankrupt the NFL? You may run a 40 in four flat but such speed is marketable to Dominos only at minimum wage. Think about it.

Democrats have successfully sold themselves as champions of the poverty class all the while advancing policies enslaving the very people they propose to help. For over a century, socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried yet like lipstick on a pig, each election cycle brings leftist candidates promising a different outcome. Venezuelans bought the socialist lie and now starving citizens have resorted to eating wild donkeys, ironically, the Democrat’s adopted mascot. It is freemarket capitalism, not socialism, which breaks the yoke of poverty for those wishing to better themselves.

In this election cycle, leftists are proposing Medicare-For-All. At a cost of $32 trillion per decade, America’s 100 million taxpayers would each need to contribute an additional $30,000 annually to their Uncle Sam. From which budget envelope should they pull their new fair share? Mortgage? Clothing? Food? Running out of other people’s money is exactly why socialism fails every time it is tried, and this brings me to my point.

For 12 years I have warned readers of the Democrat’s socialist hole card. Oddly, today the collectivists have turned their cards face up and are calling themselves Democratic-Socialists. When avowed socialist Senator Bernie Sanders and candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez draw hysterical, adoring crowds we liberty-minded patriots have obviously lost the intellectual argument with the heavily indoctrinated snowflakers. We must defeat socialism at the November ’18 election because waiting until 2020 would be like closing the barn door after the donkey escaped. Vote wisely and enthusiastically and bring a friend to the polls.
