America's Hope: Doing socialism better than Russia, better than Venezuela.
These two nations are suffering big time. The people who live in these countries are in dire straits, which is an understatement.
Yet, Those on the (Extreme) Left are convincing Liberals that socialism is the way to go.
... but how?
Let's ask the (Extreme) Left! ( I'm not asking Liberals.)
The only hope for the USA is for her to complete the prophecies of her destiny and the sooner the better so this world's system can come to its end.
The American system might or might not be fine for a while. Why not let it be fine? How many people are suffering compared to how many are not suffering? How many are living like queens and kings in a land of plenty?
So many are doing very well.
So many are enjoying lives of comfort and ease like never before.
Equality is growing and happiness is increasing year by year.
We in America are probably doing better than anyone ever has in the known history of the world. America is surely holding the lantern of peace and prosperity to show the way to all the nations of the world.
All they need to do is incorporate a constitution like ours, with the same goals and objectives: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Socialism does not guarantee liberty ... in the sense of independence, which can only come from self-reliance.
Socialism leads to dependence,
If the truth be known about 99% of America are suffering, impoverished, living on the edge of impoverishment because of a lack of understanding the working of money on this nation, hurting inside because they can't get (?), been mentally or physically molested and a million of other suffrages not revealed.
Those doing well are only doing it to the Eye of Desire which does not in any metal way appreciate what is happening to them. Their comfortable living is making them internally miserable, you may be one of the fews exceptions because it is your destiny to not feel the internal hurt the masses are.
Equality is growing by leaps and bounds apart while at a snail pace toward sameness. Don't judge the outward appearance as a sign of happiness, look into their hearts by what they are doing, drinking heavy, drugs, all forms of sexual indulgences, crime, molestations, rapes, meditating and religiously deceptions just to name a few, happy goes through their days without indulgences to make them satisfied.
America has done better in "Brainwashing" the public than even Communists.
Our constitution is far from being implemented, look at my hub "https://hubpages.com/politics/Treason-USA-Style" if you think I'm in error. It never was implemented and will not be until the "Son of Man" take over this nation.
The USA's practice has led to depending on government rather than one's own ability provide for themselves all because the "money is power" brainwashing.
Anyone who is dependent on anything other than the "self-reproducing environment" is a slave. The following I just posted on another forum will explain it.
The "garden in Eden' story of the Bible told Adam, Eve and all who read it "therefore a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." What that's actually saying is woman, as Adam renamed them, must become independent of those things which began with parents, after leaving them physically and by going against all of their instructions concerning what is what and find out for themselves. that process require "objective observing, testing to determine various results, reasoning with them and sharing the findings with others" as education is defined. Jesus called that process "born again" as tadpoles are for becoming frogs.
Man, on the other hand, will depend the self-reproducing environment for "their livelihood and substance" because they will have overcome their schoolings.
In light of that understanding it is not "Dependence VERSUS Independence" but choose either or and follow the path of your choosing.
Per usual, you chop away ... but you don't know what exactly you are chopping.
Kathryn , I've found that liberals don't like facts , fair comparisons , modern explanations of old failures in government . Perhaps they feel they can hijack capitalism's rewards and inject them into socialism's failures ? You know , claim their own brand of socialist success story ?
Guess they didn't suffer enough with the job losses under Obama .
Those unemployment extensions fed them well ?
"Perhaps they feel they can hijack capitalism's rewards and inject them into socialism's failures ? You know, claim their own brand of socialist success story?" Ed
Maybe one of them could explain or discuss what you have suggested. My observation is they have no vision.
They only chop down with the ax of hatred and what do they chop down?
A tree which could be strong and robust. A tree which the Democrats have been tearing apart branch by branch.
And now they have big heavy axes.
They see not the beauty of the tree, which grows strong with correct pruning, but weak with incorrect and excessive pruning.
Let the tree live, I say!
What do they say about the perfectly fine tree?
Oh, let it die.
It's no wonder they promote abortion.
America's hope is always a percolating economy. We are not spiritually ready for the barter system yet. That would take a good amount of ESP and faith in God.
The Way I See it
Let us take care of ourselves and our loved ones.
Most people love work , earning , money and the rewards that go with them .
Where's the slavery ?
The slavery, Ed, is in giving up your freedom to do nothing except to obtain our individual life's requirements, air, food, water and wisdom enough to get it. If the people are satisfied with being slaves to their own choice I don't object to it because that is how existence is designed to operate until one is destined to overcome being woman and go through the metamorphosis to become man.
Its called being on earth. On the astral plane its much easier.
No taxes, no dirt to dig, no houses to build. Here, there is and it feels like slavery.
Unless one has been destined to go through the metamorphosis from human/woman into man, then, even on earth they don't have those things. As a matter of fact, Natives Americans are not taxed in this country uness they refuse to register as them.
Yes, taxes turn us into slaves. How can we get control of big state governments? (In the blue states)
It sounded like you are a part of the nation's problems rather than being a part of its solution.
I'm about correcting this nation that has never followed its Supreme Law, but then, you probably already know that.
I'm now in the city of "Taxation Without Representation", DC, waiting to take over the government and bring world peace.
My point is this:
Forcing is taboo. Forcing takes away the "will do do." Being forced depresses the spirit. Joy of life depends on freedom. The fact that most people are happy in America is based on the fact that that they still have a lot of freedom. Yes, some is gone. But the hope and vision of freedom and liberty still remains. Even though taxes are high and regulations are plenty.
Yes, it seems like we are forced to get up in the morning and put in another grueling day, but the fact remains, we chose what we are now committed to. We chose it because there was some advantage. We wanted the advantage and we still want it. It gives us what we need and want.
And the fact remains, it was our choice ... and there's always the weekends.
Socialism is a system which removes the human potential for joy of life
Big , intrusive , controlling ,hyper - expensive , slothlike non-performing , suffocating government or not !
You chose .
America's greater problem in the EAST is local and state taxation , on average people people in rural NH and Vermont paying $ 4,000 --6,000 thousand a year for their homes property taxes TO THE TOWNS AND STATE , On average the split is 80% for education and twenty percent to municipal taxes . Add in federal , and state , sometimes local income taxes , and boom - there's your problem .
America's Hope is in embracing civilization with a keen eye for nature ...
and blending the two.
Even conservatives accept that believe it or not !
That is what I'm "Hell Bent" on doing. If you can understand https://hubpage.com/politics/Treason-USA-Style along with https://hubpages.com/politics/Why-And-H … Overthrown then you will understand me as much as you need to.

Commonly, those people who call themselves conservative hold socialism and communism as being the end-state of liberalism. I would argue that there is nothing "liberal" about socialism and communism. Think about it, the fundamental engine behind both is the need for the...

Do you think things are changing for the better or for the worse?War, depression, no jobs, hunger, prices skyrocketing, is this a good thing? Are we heading for something that will be better; or are we heading for more of the same?
