Socialism comes in all Colors

OK, for all you Void, Vapid, Glittering Jewels of Colossal Ignorance who cling to your platitudes and Democratic Talking Points and above all lack the gravitas to support any argument in favor of your Messiah get over the Racism thing. The fact that the majority of Americans do not support the policies of your Marxist President has nothing what so ever to do with the color of his skin. Let me set the record straight for once and for all; I dislike Barrack Hussein Obama’s White side just as much as I dislike his Black Side. The fact is I don’t give a Rat’s Rear End what color he is!

So, the next time one of you lefty loons find displeasure in what we on the Right write or say please refrain from leveling the old Racism Criticism! I don’t believe you could find one single Cuban, white or brown that would say they don’t like Castro’s policies because of his dark skin color. No my friends, Socialism is Socialism regardless of the skin color of the perpetrator!

Let’s examine for a minute the rainbow of skin colors of the World’s Greatest Socialist. The founder of Socialism; Karl Heinrich Marx was a German! So Socialism was concieved in a brain that was encased in White Skin! Fast forward to October 1917, when Vladimir Ilyich Lenin a Russian Marxist Revolutionary led the Bolshevik Revolution and established control over Russia by the Socialist! Huuuum are you beginning to get the picture; the father of Socialism and the leader of the first revolution which established it as the dominant philosophy governing a country were both White Men!

Fast forward to the 1930’s and 40’s; Adolph Hitler and his Nationalist Socialist German Workers’ Party ruled Germany from 1933 to 1945. Get the name national SOCIALISTS german worker’s party? Again wasn’t Hitler white; thus the second time Socialism was established as a means to control people was by yet another White man.

Then on October 1, 1949, the Communist took control of China; these same Communist that took control in Russia some 32 years earlier. They launched a land reform program with the slogan "Land to the Tiller!" The Party had widespread support among the peasantry (which was eighty percent of China's population); many hotheaded peasants sought retribution from the landlords , and these over-zealous Communist killed more than a million of the former land owners. The Communist Party decided to launch a new program of collectivizing farming. China's peasantry saw Chairman Mao and the Communist Party as heroes and thus the peasantry cooperated with the Party. Wow boys and girls; whatta you know; another shade of Socialism has arisen; Yellow!

Let’s examine other Socialist regimes; on October 13, 1945, the Communist Party of Korea took control of the country and and established Kim Il-sung as its first Marxist-Leninist leader! Then in the 1950’s Communist leader Fidel Castro violently overthrew the Cuban government and declared Cuba to be a Communist Country. Marxist socialist leader Salvador Allende was popularly elected in Chile in 1970 in a minority government run by the Popular Unity Party. Allende's economic policy, known as the Vuskovic Plan, sought to achieve transition to socialism. The Vuskovic Plan involved nationalization of large foreign enterprises, land redistribution to farmers, and redistribution of income. Let’s stop for another minuet and examine this group of Socialists; North Korean; Asian Yellow; Cuban and Chilean Latino Brown! Wow; what a wide array of colors Socialism comes in!

Now let’s briefly look at Obama’s America! When Obama took office, federal, state and local spending accounted for 30 percent of the gross domestic product. Now it is up to 35 percent, and when health care is fully implemented, it will rise to above 40 percent. But taxes are still below 30 percent. The difference is the deficit, now grown to 10 percent of our GDP. If our government is to continue spending 40 percent of our GDP, we will morph into the European model of a socialist democracy. As an economic theory, democratic socialism calls for equalization of incomes, through taxation of private wealth coupled with welfare state spending. Thenationalization of major industries is primarily a device to allow the unionized workers to control their own wages and working conditions, cutting out the capitalistic owners.

So my friends I reiterate my original point, Socialism comes in many colors; White, Yellow, Brown and Black. Those that oppose it do so not because they are racists because it Socialism permeates all races; no they oppose it is because they despise its’ inherent evil; Socialism destroys human initiative and dignity!

As a socialist I disagree with what you say, but as a democrat I support you saying it.

One could take examples of dreadful capitalists to condemn capitalism.

A more constructive approach is to look at what people are seeking to achieve, and then consider what system might help to achieve it. Is a bright kid from a poor family more likely or less likely to get a good education in a socialist society or a capitalist society?

Is a poor sick person more likely or less likely to get good health care in a socialist society or a capitalist society?

I agree that it is too easy to label opponents of Obama as "racist" - the criticisms have to be answered head on.

For starters I must applaud your demeanor; you are the most agreeable detractor I have encountered as of yet. Having said that of course I reject your premise in its entirety but do RESPECT YOUR RIGHT TO BE WRONG.

Hope to see you around here again; maybe just maybe I’ll convert you from the Dark Side!

You and Charles crack me up.

You did a great job of wrapping all of these up together and showing how they come in with great promises, but in the people's ignorant, steal their freedom.

I was in Europe many times when the communists had marches and tried to get everyone to go on strike and shut the country down. We had to explain to them the communists want to hurt the country by shutting it down, and the complain how but it is after the results of them shutting the country down and hurting the economy. Most of the European we spoke with understood that after we explained it to them.

Keep on hubbing!

Bravo Patriot. I love the way you tell it like it is and I am sick of hearing the racist label thrown around like yesterday's lunch. Socialism will destroy our country as it does every country. When I stop and realize that there are people in our nation who would prefer to be living in a socialist country, I say go, because I pray you never get what you want here. Go and give up your incentive to achieve someplace else. Rated up, Patriot. Awesome.

I am not a detractor of you, nor am I an opponent. I find the rhetoric in the hub overblown, but that is an issue of style. I visited Czechoslovakia after the 1968 Soviet invasion, and saw what living in that society was like.

Very few Americans would wish to live in an unregulated capitalist system either. The question comes what regulation is necessary for an effective and democratic society, and what is not necessary for this purpose.

The Health Care legislation is seen by many conservative Americans as a "socialist" measure. Yet the capitalist system as operated previously excluded something approaching a third of Americans from effective Health care. That is why so many people wanted an improvement.

In Britain our National Health Service has faults, but it is so dear to our hearts that no Conservative government can get elected without promising to protect the National Health service. They break the promises of course, but they have to make the promises to have any chance to get elected.

What has been so interesting about your debate is that the Right say "If it ain't broke don't fix it", which is no answer to the many millions of Americans who say that it is broke and so needs fixing. "Yes we can."

There has been no intelligent alternative from the Right - just the waving of birth certificates and taking guns to political meetings - which gives the Right a bad image.

Patriot, Excellent hub. Racism is not the problem and I think its irrelevant. I don't want to hear it either. Socialism is a very serious problem that we are literally paying the cost of every day. Obama is so anti-business that he is pushing out country down the drain.

As always thanks for your support; Winston Churchill said it best; “The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings; the inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of the misery!


Partisan Patriot 5 years ago Author

Again for starters I like you; can’t say that about any other self proclaimed Socialists! Sorry but I can’t share your view that living in an UNREGULATED CAPITALISTS SYSTEM would be as bad as living under a Socialist Regime.

The Health Care legislation is indeed socialist takeover of some 16% of our economy; pure and simple. Those that needed health care had means at their disposal through which to get it. What this Regime effectively did was attempt to wreck the greatest health care system in the world. In response to your reference to the British Health Care System I will throw a quote from one of your own Sir Winston Churchill at you; he said it best; “The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings; the inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of the misery! Sorry Charles but if you’re honest you have to admit all serious procedures are possible only after waiting extended periods of time.

I agree Health Care needed reforming but the primary culprit wasn’t addressed with this Obamination; tort reform. You see the reason cost have skyrocketed is because health care providers are forced to perform unnecessary procedures in order to protect them from malpractice suits plus the malpractice insurance they are forced to carry in and of itself escalates the cost of their services. The reason Tort Reform wasn’t addressed in this Obamination is plain and simple; trial lawyers are a very large constituency of the Liberal Democrats!

The Right has been screaming intelligent solutions from as far back as January of this year when His Lordship paid a visit to the House of Commons supposedly to listen to Republican ideas. His Lordship quickly made it clear he was there to lecture them and not to give audience to their petty grievances. King Obama repeatedly defended his policies and accused the Commoners of distorting his positions for political gain. He was especially critical of their efforts to derail his attempt to take over the Health Care of the Kingdom. Instead of recognizing his magnificent Benevolence in desiring to cover every subject in the kingdom these bumpkins were fretting over the insignificant truth that in doing so the King would gain control of over 16% of the kingdom’s economy. With his royal nose in the air the King lashed out saying; "You'd think this was some Bolshevik plot!" Well, except for the fact his henchmen Pelosi and Reid were sitting astride Asses; their own, instead of horses that are exactly what it was!

I leave you with a series of quotes which say it better than I ever could; that is why I prefer Capitalism over Socialism

Sir Winston Churchill; “I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket trying to lift himself up by the handle!'

George Bernard Shaw; “ A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul!" G. Gordon Liddy; ”A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which he proposes to pay with your money!” Ronald Reagan; “Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases; if it moves tax it; if it keeps moving regulate it and if it stops moving subsidize it!” P. J. O’Rouke; “If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it cost when it’s free!”

And my personal favorite; Thomas Jefferson said; “A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have!”

Great hub, Patriot. I am impressed with Charles' comments, he is so civil! Quite refreshing, given his political views. And like you, and every other person who dislikes Obama, the race-card is waaaaay over played. IF the guy had sense in his head and America's best interests at heart, I'd vote for him...even if he was skybluepink! But because he hates America and is a brainless teleprompter, I won't. Hell, I wish he was skybluepink, at least he'd be somewhat interesting then...

I also like people with whom I can have an intelligent conversation.

Imagine we are two folk separated by a chasm. The chasm must be bridged for the welfare of the community. Because of the distance between us there is a tendency to shout - and in shouting one tends to simplify the message. We are not necessarily opposed, but someone seeing us shout at each other might imagine we are. Too many people think that shouting is the only possible means of communication.

The Health Insurance companies will not insure those with health problems - where is the profit in that? Health insurance is an expense many Americans simply cannot afford. Low income families struggle daily to feed their families and sometimes to feed themselves.

I agree with you about the rapacious American medical negligence lawyers. If you give people the keys to a money making mechanism they will use it. It might be better to look at how these cases are funded, and have low salaried public interest lawyers instead. That ought to cut lawyer expenses quickly - and hopefully reduce insurance premiums.

In Britain health costs are paid through the tax system. "From each according to their ability - to each according to their need" - like in any family.

There are problems in the administration of public money, and the fact that some capitalists like Enron behaved badly does not mean that the problems of administering public money do not exist.

In Britain we quite often have the private sector working with the public sector. Dentists and family doctors are paid according to how much work their practice does, so they are capitalists employed by a socialist system. There are rules to prevent them abusing their trust.

The National Institute of Clinical Excellence looks at drugs, and sometimes says they are not effective or are not value for money. They cannot be prescribed on the taxpayer. There has been a huge drive to cut costs by using cheap generic drugs rather than the same drug with a fancy label at 15 times the price.

The Health Service used to have huge queues, but the Labour Government forced through changes. Now cancer patients see a specialist within 2 weeks, all specialists are seen pretty quickly, and all operations must be scheduled within 18 weeks - and faster if they are urgent.

Our system is not perfect, but it consumes a smaller part of our Gross Domestic Product than yours and it serves our entire community.

Great hub! I've had to step away from stupidity from the left. The racist crap is just too much. Our gov't is comprised of Idiots. I've taken some days off from the news and hubbing (because our hubbers on the conservative right are so accurate in their reporting!), and mostly because of brainwashed people like Charles James. I am hugely disappointed that so many people KNOWING how socialism has failed historically would be so ready to jump into it with both feet. And Mr. James is completely mistaken with the perception of healthcare in England, as all too many Brits will tell us.

So, I'll be back next week and hope to be rested and ready for the last round of "crap" slung by the left before the mid-terms!

Thanks for the comments; hopefully in a little over 2 weeks from now fifty or more of the idiots will be leaving the House and Queen Pelosi will be told where to stick her gavel now that it is no longer of any use to her. As for the senate I'm praying we get that too but at least if we get rid of Reid there will be some consulation in that!

Charles James 5 years ago from Yorkshire, UK

I have been thinking over your comments about being happy to live in a completely unregulated capitalist society. Most of the regulation has come about because capitalists have repeatedly behaved badly when balancing their own wishes against the needs of society.

That is why there is safety legislation in factories and public service vehicles, why there are controls about pollution, why there are anti discriminatiuon laws in employment. Do you really want to live in a society where the electricity company can discriminate against you as a customer because you are a registered Republican or registered Democrat?

Do you really want a completely unregulated capitalist system or is some regulation inevitable?


partisan patriot 5 years ago

Charles

I wish you weren’t such a likable chap (how’s that for a bit of British Lingo) so I could unleash my guns but I will start once again with I respect your right to be wrong!

I will concede you part of your opening point; most of the regulation has come about because capitalists have behaved badly. Labor Unions are an excellent example of that premise. However that’s where we part paths. Labor Unions have successfully succeeded in running most of the steel, rubber and auto and all of the textile industry out of this country. The collapse of what was left of the auto industry was only delayed when this Socialist Regime stepped in and saved the UAW at the expense of the investors. Thus the Unions that bankrupted the auto industry were save and allowed to continue in their wasteful ways while the millions of investors; pension plans and other 401K investors received pennies on the dollar. That my friend is what happens with unbridled Socialism!

Your second point Capitalist should somehow balance their own wishes against the needs of society sums up your inability to comprehend capitalism. Capitalism is the system through which people may progress from poor to rich; no one is locked into any social status by birth. In doing so the corporations are designed to make a profit. What you don’t understand is that corporations are not controlled by any one person; they are dependent on shareholders who invest in the corporations in order to grow their own personal retirement accounts. If the corporations don’t earn the investors the proper rate of return on their investments the investors will go elsewhere and the corporations will have no money to invest and grow; they will die on the vine. The cycle is self perpetuating and dependent upon PROFITS in order to succeed. Sorry Charles but Corporations don’t exist in order to provide jobs for people. Look at Greece and Italy today as a prime example of the ultimate result of Socialism.

Safety legislation in factories HAS LED TO THE RASH OF RUN AWAY Class action Law Suits; ever heard of Mesothilioma? Neither had anyone else a couple of years ago until some Sleaze Bag Lawyer realized he could seize upon the disease and make billions through law suits that would eventually shut down certain industries but who cares what happened to those dirty rotten capitalists; the lawyers get rich and the poor working class gets exploited. That’s the end result of public legislation. It merely provides a vehicle through which Sleaze Bag Attorneys can make billions at the expense of American Industry!

Pollution Controls are the primary reason for the exacerbation of the BP Oil Spill. Had the environmentalist Waccos not forced BP and others further and further off shore this “leak” could have been plugged in a day instead of growing into the catastrophe it ultimately became. Unabated Environmentalism is the scourge of American Industry and one of the primary reasons businesses both Big and Small refuses to respond to the Regime and hire people; they are scared to death of the regulations that awaits them around the corner if this Regime stays in place. Watch what happens to unemployment if the Republicans regain control of the House and Senate in November; unemployment will begin to fall immediately!

Discrimination has become a business in this country; like the labor unions it has grown into a self sustaining cancer. People are scared to death of the term Racists. We would not have the first American (at least he claims to be so but no proof to substantiate it has ever been produced) Socialists President if it weren’t for overzealous anti-discrimination sentiment carried to the extreme!

Yes I want to live in a society where capitalism regulates itself!

Have a cup of tea Charles and a nice day!

Patriot,

The commentary is really fascinating and I have to say I appreciate a civil discussion. Our health care system needs fixing, but it needs to be done right. We have no reason to envy or copy Britain's system. Their system isn't perfect either. What we want is a chance to redo what we have in a fair and equitable way. So far, I can see that the handwriting is on the wall. Seniors will pay heavily for all this change

There are some on the Left who use "racist" as an easy label to categorise Obama's opponents. It is a substitute for engaging with the issues. In some cases it will be true, but in the vast majority of cases it will not be true.

Almost all who oppose Obama would oppose the same measures from any president.

If we in Britain can give a health service that covers all the population for a considerably smaller proportion of GDP than the American system which effectively covers two thirds of the population, there is an argument that we have got it closer to right than America.

I have no problem with changing the basis on which American lawyers get paid. Get on with it!

I think you now agree that a capitalist society has to have regulation to some degree.

If I were an American it would concern me that millions of Americans are without an effective health care system under capitalism. Families plunged into poverty and debt feel the effects for generations.

If I were an American, it would concern me that so many people do not vote.

I am grateful that you permit me to be wrong when I disagree with you.

Don’t think for a minute the left has given up their number one weapon in their arsenal; racism; you see they are socialist who level the charge of racism against anyone that disagrees with them hoping it will shut them up.


Charles James profile image

Charles James 5 years ago from Yorkshire, UK

Actually the Number 1 weapon of the Left is calm reasoned argument.

The problem with trade unions is that they are essentially reactive. The reason the car industry is in deep difficulty is that the management took far too long to understand why they were losing out to the Japanese, to switch to cheap "economy" cars, and to cut costs away from the production line. Who else would think to go to Washington with begging bowls using three company jets?

Management must manage! It is the responsibility of management to look into the futrure and position their company aoppropriately. The American car management did not do this - now they blame the unions!

Most industrialists who have spent time talking to their unions get agreement. If Management want to keep their private jets but decrease the hourly rate on the production line - of course they will have problems.

The problem is poor management in the Auto industry over decades.


partisan patriot 5 years ago

Charles

Are you aware the Left; NPR just fired Juan Williams. Mr. Williams represented exactly what you opened with as the Number 1 weapon of the Left, calm reasoned argument. I think you are certainly smart enough to understand my rebuttal so my friend; I rest my case!

The problem with trade unions is they destroy companies. The reason the car industry is in deep difficulty is not that the management took far too long to understand why they were losing out to the Japanese, it is because it took way too long to realize they could not continue to give in to outrageous union demands and as far as cheap "economy" cars go, if America would have wanted them they would have built them. The car companies built what Americans wanted to drive. You see my friend the Global warming left can’t force us to drive around in tiny little match boxes in order to support their myth!

Another myth you put forth from the left. Those that work for corporations do so for an agreed to wage; they are not entitled to the perks management receives. If they wanted to share in the perks then they should cross over from their union jobs and take jobs as supervisors. Management’s private jets are of no concern to them. And yes it is the job of management to decrease production line cost; companies do not exist in order to provide jobs, they exist in order to make a profit and attract5 investors who are also looking to make a profit. That my friend is how Capitalism works; I like it, that’s why I’m an American!

In answer to your question.....NOW!!


Charles James profile image

Charles James 5 years ago from Yorkshire, UK

I like you too!

Wow! So many things to go at. Where to start?

Long before climate warming was any kind of political issue small cars were beating large cars in the market place because they are cheaper to run and easier to park. The American auto management took too long to wake up!

You I think agree that it is management's job to manage and they did not manage. They built up huge financial commitments in pensions and deferred pay knowing that they would be in deep trouble if there was a recession - and recessions happen under capitalism. If the perks of management are not something the line worker has an interest in, why should a line worker reduce his pension claim when management are awarding themselves bonuses?

I have known British trade union negotiators refuse pension offers because they were too generous - the company simply could not afford what they were offering. Would you criticise that?

I find very few on the left that comment with specifics or details.

The problem that I have with Congress both parties, and the Presidents especially those on the left is that they exclude themselves from the laws and their workforce.

President Obama if he had a great healthcare reform should have made it the plan for the whole country. The taxpayers pay for great benefits, including lucrative pensions for the government workforce.

When they passed the financial reform they didn't include the real problem children of the economic meltdown, namely Freddie and Fannie.

etc.
