    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.)

    Any takers?

        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,
          not independence.

            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.

    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 ?

    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.

      The tree is the vision of the founding fathers. They would be alarmed at the size of government today, even the state governments.

    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.

    Most people love work , earning , money and the rewards that go with them .

    Where's the slavery ?

    1. The0NatureBoy profile image49
      The0NatureBoyposted 18 months agoin reply to this

      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.
    So die.

      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.

    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.

      Is "... big, intrusive, controlling, hyper-expensive, sloth-like, non-performing, suffocating g.o.v.e.r.n.m.e.n.t ..." what you REALLY, REALLY WANT?

    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 .

    and blending the two.
