If socialism/communism is a better form of government then the capitalistic form we have in the United States of America, why do average citizens of countries such as Cuba and the former USSR, China and many other nations risk everything and their lives to get here?
I'm sure for the ruling elite of those countries it is an excellent form of government. They squash free speech, dissension, independence, the ability to make a better life for yourself and your family all to keep themselves in power. Sound familiar? Look at the main players in our government today. The majority are millionaires. The majority are in favor of any legislation that takes the power of governing the people out of the hands of the people and putting it in their hands. What happened to "a government by the people, for the people and of the people"?
Can any supporter of the current trend in America explain to me and perhaps millions of other Americans why the form of government (less intrusion in personal lives) the belief in a Christian God, a capitalistic form of business that together have created the greatest nation in the history of the world. A nation that took in legal immigrants from all countries, a nation that holds freedom to worship the religion of your choice an inalienable right, a business climate that lead to some if not most of the greatest discoveries and technological advances in history should be destroyed?
I don't believe it can be explained.
I think what we have is a self perceived elite class of politicians who have forgotten they derive their power from the people and do nothing more than enact laws and regulations to perpetuate their dominance over American citizens. It is time for Americans who believe in America to take back our country, to hold accountable those politicians who do not respect, honor, follow and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and vote them out of office in November and to paraphrase the Declaration of Independence "put in their place such people who will respect, honor, follow, and defend the Constitution" there-by bringing back the free America countless millions have died and are dying to defend.
