NEWS BRIEF: "President
‘Seductive' Socialism Would Send
Country ‘Down the Tubes' in a Decade
or Less", Breitbart
News, 11 Mar 2019
Donald Trump told Breitbart News on Monday that
he feels 'very strongly' that the United States
will never succumb to socialism. 'I feel it
very strongly', Trump replied ... Trump continued
by explaining that many Democrats are campaigning
on socialism, however, because it is 'easy'
to campaign on but difficult 'to govern on'."
I believe the
President has understated his case here: Socialism
is easy to proclaim during a campaign, but it
is impossible to actually carry out because
the government always runs out of money they
can legally steal -- taxation -- and much earlier
than they anticipated.
Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once correctly
observed: "Socialism works until you run
out of the other people's money"!
And, the old adage
commonly attributed to a French politician around
1803 is also correct: When asked if he thought
the new American experiment in a Representative
Republic would work, he stated, "Yes, it
will work, until citizens realize they can vote
themselves money out of the National Treasury"!

Once you implement
Socialism, and once you start running out of
other people's money, you then reach out to
snatch the money you need from the bank accounts
of people whose only crime is to have worked
hard to earn an amount large enough to be seized
by that intrusive Socialist government.
You see, if a
private individual stole money from another
person's bank account, that is felony theft
and can be prosecuted with the threat of decades
in prison. But, if government officials write
a law which takes even more money from taxpayer's
bank accounts, that is legal, and that is Socialism!
stealing of taxpayer's money through official
government laws is never really talked about
during an election, at least not effectively
penetrating the voter's mind with this very
real and inescapable, tax increase.
