By John A. Mangin, Jr.
As a nation, we face immediate challenges, both of which threaten to destroy our capitalistic system if we let them:
- Cap-and-Trade, that rip-off by a government bent on rewarding its political favorites by creating a scarce new commodity, “carbon credits,” making businesses buy it, but forcing the poor pay to for it with the regressive taxation of gasoline and electricity.
- ObamaCare, the Federal takeover of the medical industry, which will hand medical decisions over to government bureaucrats, doing away with the privacy of medical data and our right to select our own medical insurance and choose our own doctors.
But what will break this country is:
- The push by leaders of both parties to legalize 15,000,000 to 30,000,000 illegal aliens and hand them medical insurance. Even the government concedes that few illegals will benefit, and that we’ll be forking over $60,000 a year for each one we do manage to help. That’s four or five-times more than anyone is spending now!
If we don’t push back, the nation will soon be financially bankrupt, culturally criminalized, and linguistically ruined; eventually, our borders will be gone, our culture destroyed, and our language all-but forgotten.
What Can We Do?
It’s very simple, yet very difficult. We must say “No!” to further government takeovers and “No!” to creeping socialism.
Specifically, we must vote politicians who support those measures out of office, and elect people who know how to balance a budget, and who will work to remove those arrogant representatives of special privilege who have been trading political service for personal gain, and ending up millionaires at our expense. In short, we need people who understand free enterprise, who reject the socialist agenda, and who are pro-America!
I hope that a few of you care as much as I do about rejecting the creep of socialism in this country and saving the democratic republic our forefathers gave us, remembering Benjamin Franklin’s famous admonition: “If you can keep it!”
That’s what I’m going to do. Who will join me?
