The internet is full of Leftist memes that are completely bogus or misleading so the uneducated or low information voter will fall victim to the false teachings with in them. I love exposing them.
I will start with the obvious here. This quote is attributed to President Truman. I haven’t fact checked it to see if he really said this or not. But let’s for the sake of argument say that he did in fact say this quote. There is the other fact that President Truman was a socialist, just as FDR was before him. Of course he is going to speak fondly of it. The Devil speaks fondly of Hell too.
The first statement is incorrect. Socialism is NOT a scareword that the unammed “they” have hurled at so-called advancements made between 1932 and 1952. Socialism is a warning word, that our Liberties, freedoms, and Republic are in danger of loosing because of these so-called advancements.
Public Power, I don’t know anywhere that has public power. All power is generated by a corporation, yes sometimes that corporation maybe owned by a municipality, but it is still for profit. If there is any power that is public an freely given to the people, then that is in fact socialism at work. And it should be abolished.
Social Security. This is socialism alright. The government should not be the one’s looking out for someone’s retirement years. Take personal responsibility and look out for yourself. I would like to have all of my FICA tax back thank you and never be charged it again.
Farm Price Supports. These are indeed socialist. Like all things socialist they should be abolished. A free and open market, despite its problems, is the best economic solution.
Bank Deposit Insurance. This was created after the Great Depression when banks closed because of poor practices and economic collapse that happened in that time period. What makes this socialist is that it is ran by the government. There again the government doing things it should not be doing. With the proper insurance company you can get anything insured, including your bank deposit with the free market.
The Growth of Free and Independent Labor Organizations. That is joke right? Every labor organization is controlled by the Democratic Party and their Leftist ideas. They are nothing but propaganda and funding sources for the Democratic Party elite.
And then there is that mysterious “their” again. Calling socialism a name for anything that helps all people. That too is also false. Socialism has never helped all people. History has repeatedly shown us this fact. Socialism widens the gap between rich and poor. Socialism brings everyone down to the same level and never allows anyone to rise above. Socialism has been tried, even in the original settlements of the American colonies. And it was abandoned then because it does not work.
So in conclusion here, the 1st and last statements are completely false and misleading. It also has the “them” and “their” as an invisible bad guy. The rest of it is accurate. Those things are all socialist and need to be abolished.
