Socialism and the New World


By: Jack L. Key

During this presidential election season we’ve all heard about the “New” world being offered to us under the guise of “Change” and the Progressive Socialism that comes with it.

This is the time everyone has a “right” to a job mentality, the “bail out” bill being forwarded by the administration and the Congress, the welfare bills, the free college bills, even “houses for the poor” when they can’t afford them and won’t pay for them—but the taxpayer and middle income America will. This is the “minority rights” generation, the “affirmative action” governmental movement.

This is “open borders” time for illegal immigration, free money and free housing and citizen benefits, a “feed the world” timetable and billions for foreign governments while our own aged citizens and burdened middle income wage earners face higher and higher taxes—and more has been promised by Barak Obama and his crowd.

Yes, it’s all for one and one for all—everything free!

Friends, what it is, is European-style socialism, it’s Chinese socio-communism, it’s Russian social-democracy, but it’s not DEMOCRACY! It is not what the United States of America is about. It is not what our Constitution implies, not what was foreseen by our founders, and not what has made ours the great country that it is.

I am of OUR own world—not the “new” world that evolved in someone’s private dreams. I am an old world Republican-Democrat—a citizen of the great Republic and conservative Democracy that we built by hand, hard work and the sweat of our brow. The country we all felt we were building for our children and their children, and the wealth we built for ourselves—but have now given or transferred most of it away to other countries.

I have a new book coming out in Spring 2009 called “Cherryfields”, and that focuses on our hardships and work and the building and saving of our great country. It is a collection of factual short stories of the earlier 20th century, the Great Depression and WW II, and the “unforgettable characters” and of the warm recollections of a boy in the 1930’s.

Those were the real hard economic times! But our religious faith, humor and hard work still prevailed. Perhaps its time we remembered them as we listen to the “NEW” rhetoric.

You can read five (5) of the stories in the book for free by going to my website at www.authorsden.com/jackkey and selecting short stories—“Cherryfields.”

I hope it will be insightful for some and bring back many old memories for others. I think everyone might enjoy them. Thank you.
