    Certainly,we as a nation have entered into an area of socialism that there may be no return from; are we then following the statement above, credited to Karl Marx? It follows that socialism is the only road to Marxism, a totalitarian rule. Would you agree?

    Every civilization follows the following progression:

    1.From bondage to spiritual faith
    2.From spiritual faith to great courage
    3.From courage to liberty
    4.From liberty to abundance
    5.From abundance to complacency
    6.From complacency to apathy
    7.From apathy to dependence
    8.From dependency back into bondage.

    I believe we as a nation, with the election of Obama are at step 7. How long will it take to get to step 8 is unknown, but to deny this is occurring is at best foolish and at worst ignorant.

    Socialism is an ideology that fails 100% of the time, simply because it suppresses any individual rights or freedoms.

    Democracy isn't the only road to socialism. Both are altruistic ideologies, both as dangerous to America's way of life.

    The Republic Union of Citizenry and Government is based on Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

    Socialism defeats Liberty.
    Socialism destroys Life.
    Socialism degrades the Pursuit of Happiness.

    Socialism and Democracy are both misconceptions, based on faulty ideologies.

    Just my thoughts on the subject. smile
