If you believe in American values, you must resist the socialist ideas of the left.
America has already started on a new path and will never be the same again. And the only thing that has to happen for it to crumble is for the majority to do nothing and watch.
People have yet to realize what 2020 represents. We've hit a turning point in which there is no going back. Whether we come out of this better or worse is the question.
We have hit a point in which our fiat dollars, bankrupt government, and unsuitable debt are collapsing. These crumbling institutions will lead many to even more crazy ideals when what we need is a return to what America was and is supposed to be.
In 2020, we've hit a political divide that future historians will look back as the beginning of the end.
One of the most insidious dangers is how easy the elite and their media puppets can manipulate the masses.
The public is SO EASILY controlled by fear. This is propaganda. People think propaganda is just something you learn in history class when you cover the Holocaust. They don't make the connection to then and now.
Propaganda is more alive than ever.
Unfortunately, most Americans act as every citizenry has throughout time: they give away their rights, one bite at a time. As Nikita Khrushchev, a former leader of the Soviet Union said: "The Americans will not accept communism at once, but they will eat it one tablespoon at a time."
The left ideas of quality and fairness for all and more government intervention have gone so far right to be actual socialism.
America has become a fight between freedom on the right and socialism/communism/marxism on the left.
There's nothing left in the middle—a two-party system polarizes by definition.
Look at the democratic run states currently in disarray with civil unrest, disbanding police, letting criminals walk, and now, citing a virus which each day shows a lower death rate than the seasonal flu, local politicians are committing blatant human rights violations—like California shutting off the water of anyone that hosts a small gathering or party, an act the UN considers a violation of human rights.
Then there's the constitution and the rule of law going ignored or violated in particular cases. People arrested for committing felonies are being set free, and charges dropped while gym owners are being arrested and prosecuted for opening their business (look up Atlas Gym).
This is the problem with any socialist ideal: it might sound good on paper, but it doesn't work in practice, and it ALWAYS makes things orders of magnitude worse.
The $15 minimum wage for car wash employees in New York forced most of these hand-wash car washes to close, and the very employees that were supposed to benefit lost their jobs. #smart
And that's only one of countless examples that show us clearly how much the ideas of the left DON'T WORK.
The government always makes things worse because there is nothing keeping it in check. A free market rewards and punishes those that deserve either. The government has no such "skin in the game," and so it goes on to make arbitrary decisions or political/agenda based decisions. The citizens always pay from this mismanagement.
Regulations usually make things worse and often have a reverse effect where they end up causing more of the very thing it was trying to regulate—the powerful companies find a way around them and sometimes benefit from regulation while the small companies are squeezed out, stifling innovation and competition.
These ideas have grown in recent years because the ideas sound good on paper, and so politicians have weaponized them to appeal to voters. This has resulted in a HUGE and ever-growing government and less respect for the ideals America was founded on.
The founding fathers created the Constitution and Bill of Rights to avoid Big government. But since the founding, and especially after World War 2 in which America became an Imperialistic bully, the degradation of American principles have been declining for years. After all, remember the golden rule: whoever has the gold, makes the rules. The rich and powerful have been altering the system to their benefit for over 100 years.
2020 is just the culmination of all the insanity getting to a breaking point... and it's just the beginning of what's to come.
If you have yet to prepare, please do so. For your family's safety. Own precious metals and some Bitcoin. Have your passport. Stock up a bit on shelf-stable foods. Know your rights. Read the constitution. Vote out the crony politicians (which is any politician that's been in office for years).
Most important to all: speak up. Use social media platforms, email, and traditional letters to assault the clueless politicians, so they know you are paying attention. Maybe that will keep them in line.
