CONUNDRUM of SOCIALISM

Reader Submitted

“A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.”

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

  1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized.

  2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.

  3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.

  4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.

  5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

  6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.

Makes you wonder who is doing the math.

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

  1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.

Funny how that works. And here’s another one worth considering…

  1. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.

Think about it…..and Last but not least:

  1. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.

    Interesting, another well written article Tom. But I have a couple comments.

    I used to call my Congressman’s office weekly and complain about how much money we were spending, how much we were borrowing from the communist Chinese etc.. I have, shall we say matured.

    You see, we cannot run out of money. That is virtually impossible, as we create our own money. As much as we want, any time we want. It’s not good, there can be a down side, but it hasn’t been as bad as the fear mongers tell you daily in the hate media. Inflation virtually so far doesn’t even exist. I have been hearing that even the US dollar is getting stronger. But one has to be careful creating money, things could change rapidly for the worse. Almost the entire world survives on the US dollar.

    You see, the hate media feeds off the fear that they create in your minds. President Obama has made the far right hate radio/tv bunch richer beyond their wildest dreams. Why would anyone watch or listen to them if it wasn’t for the fear that they create in your minds? Well, Fox does have the red mini skirt beauty queens. And since our government has exported our jobs to Communist China, a lot of people don’t have anything to do but sit at home and watch TV or listen to radio. And go to the doctor. But mainly it is the fear that something bad is always going to happen if we do not act in some fashion.

    Another thing Tom. I see that you mentioned welfare and food stamps, how we can afford them but can’t afford benefits for veterans. What you failed to mention as usual is the $85 Billion a month in QE, which is nothing but welfare and food stamps for Wall St?

    Republican Pres. George Bush allowed Wall Street to take America to the cleaners, virtually destroyed our economy single-handedly. The dirty little secret is that the $85 Billion a month in QE was nothing more than a free, continuous bail out for the Wall Street. The Bush 43 and Obama bailouts were an unpopular disaster in Congress. So they did the bail outs with QE. Virtually nobody said a word. Wall St. didn’t work for that money either Tom. Both political parties didn’t complain because a substantial amount of it was coming back to their pockets. PAC’s, campaign cash etc.. Did you complain Tom?

    Right-wing blogs should thank Pres. Obama for what he has done for them. He has almost singlehandedly lead the explosive growth of the right wing hate media. All based on the magnification of fear. Fear in exchange for your money.

      How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:

      There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

      1) Healthcare– Control healthcare and you control the people

      2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

      3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

      4) Gun Control– Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

      5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)

      6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

      7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools

      8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

      Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States ?

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
