Socialism and the New World
By: Jack L. Key
During this presidential election season weâ€™ve all heard about the â€œNewâ€ world being offered to us under the guise of â€œChangeâ€ and the Progressive Socialism that comes with it.
This is the time everyone has a â€œrightâ€ to a job mentality, the â€œbail outâ€ bill being forwarded by the administration and the Congress, the welfare bills, the free college bills, even â€œhouses for the poorâ€ when they canâ€™t afford them and wonâ€™t pay for themâ€”but the taxpayer and middle income America will. This is the â€œminority rightsâ€ generation, the â€œaffirmative actionâ€ governmental movement.
This is â€œopen bordersâ€ time for illegal immigration, free money and free housing and citizen benefits, a â€œfeed the worldâ€ timetable and billions for foreign governments while our own aged citizens and burdened middle income wage earners face higher and higher taxesâ€”and more has been promised by Barak Obama and his crowd.
Yes, itâ€™s all for one and one for allâ€”everything free!
Friends, what it is, is European-style socialism, itâ€™s Chinese socio-communism, itâ€™s Russian social-democracy, but itâ€™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 worldâ€”not the â€œnewâ€ world that evolved in someoneâ€™s private dreams. I am an old world Republican-Democratâ€”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 ourselvesâ€”but have now given or transferred most of it away to other countries.
I have a new book coming out in Spring 2009 called â€œCherryfieldsâ€, 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 â€œunforgettable charactersâ€ and of the warm recollections of a boy in the 1930â€™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 â€œNEWâ€ 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 storiesâ€”â€œCherryfields.â€
I hope it will be insightful for some and bring back many old memories for others. I think everyone might enjoy them. Thank you.
