For Old-Timers, Only.

If you are under 40 you don’t need to read this. Not that I would restrict you, but you won’t understand it. For those of you over 40 you are wasting your breath trying to explain life to younger people. It’s not their fault. We have had at least 2 generations who have been taught from kindergarten thru graduate school that Communism is a great political system, and the reason it has never worked is that the wrong people were in charge of it. If done right, it can bring equality and dispel poverty, and everyone will be singing happy songs. The Nazis were a socialist party. And, of courses Russia is. But the facts are that Communism is really Totalitarianism. And that means there is an Elite group who have everything, and a poverty group who starve. There is no middle class in Communism.

Consider this: In 1980 Howard Zinn (look him up) a Harvard professor and an avowed communist wrote A Peoples History of the United States.  This false history that denounces the US has been used as a  textbook taught in almost all  public American schools This phony book completely destroyed true American history and extolled the virtues of socialism and communizing. Your children were brainwashed with  this nonsense throughout their education. Is it any wonder that they believe this garbage?  We are all the result of what we were taught by adults. Children don’t have the brains to discern the difference between reality and fantasy. That’s why they love cartoons. They believe fairy tales are true. The bran doesn’t fully develop until an individual reaches age 25.

In addition young people don’t remember the Cold War and how we all feared that Russia could drop an atom bomb on us at any time. They have had no hardships; their life has been easy. They were given a trophy, not based on superior performance, but just for showing up. They’ve had no incentive to do better – they deserve the best – just because. Their parents, in general, sought to be their “friends” and “buddies” instead of teaching then discipline as is required in the real world. They weren’t taught tp respect America.

So we really can’t blame young people for their misguided beliefs. And there is no need to try to convince them of the truth about socialism. But here is the scary part.

These young socialists in their 20s, 30s, and 40s are going to be – in the future – our Mayors, Governors, Representatives, Senators, Supreme Court Justices, on the School Board, the Country Commissioners. They will be in every public office.. The future of an America with patriotic citizens, those who cherish our true history, those who revere our national monuments and salute our flag and stand for our anthem – is not going to happen.

I won’t be here, but some of you will. I cherish each day that God gives me on earth, but sometimes I am glad that I am an old timer. I do not want to be hee to see the Death of we knew it in better times. There will always be an America. But will it be The United Socialists States of America?

  1. John, I am afraid we just might live to see this nonsense. They probably stole the 2008 and 2012 elections. They missed out in 2016, and they are mad as hell. Pray for Donald Trumps and all the GOP candidates every day. They are going to need it.

  2. What ever happened to the world of patriotic movie stars like John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart? I remember when communist in Hollywood were blacklisted. Now they would have to blacklist almost the whole damn industry, what a shame.
