Socialism In Action

In the Boston Globe on June 3, 2009, appeared an article by Jeff Jacoby entitled "China's 'socialist road' to misery." It is a harrowing report of the Chinese government's atrocities against her citizens--in particular the hideous persecution of Falun Gong. How can anyone commit such horrors on another human being?

One must remember that the perpetrators of such foul evilness are actions committed not by human beings but by the irrational, the mindless, the sub-human to whom obedience is the only criteria, the only value and the only goal of "the socialist road with Chinese characteristics."

Let us be warned that the United States is not immune from such horrors now that we have allowed socialism to take over this nation. It CAN happen here. But we can change it. We can stop socialism dead in its tracks by voting out of office all those who support to any degree such a vicious doctrine as socialism.

For those interested, the article may be accessed at

The problem that arises is this: Who would replace them? What political party would be the source of the replacements? I see no suitable source, for now.

More deeply, who would vote for a politician who supports capitalism (the political system solely devoted to protecting individual rights, especially the fundamental rights of life, liberty, and property)? For now, there are too few such voters.

In conclusion, I think there are many steps to be taken before voting will be meaningful.
