KRUSCHEV WAS RIGHT
There are two Americas.....Republicans and Democrats.
One puts in, the other takes out.......givers and takers.
According to the Census Bureau, some 49.1 percent of all American
households contain one or more members receiving some sort of government
They used to call that the dole.
Now they call it welfare/entitlement.
Half of Americans call it their right.
The other half call it their burden.
Federal statistics show that some 49.1 percent get a check, and 47
percent pay no income tax. The burden of supporting government – and a
dependent half of the population – falls to 50 percent of Americans. In
the land of equality, life is decidedly unequal. And the so-called
disadvantaged seem to be at a substantial advantage.
The dividing line, right down the middle, is the defining
reality of American politics. It’s not about philosophies, it’s about
One party stands for the half of the population that earns
money. The other party stands for the half of the population that gets
money from the government.
It’s that simple.
In overwhelming proportion, those who are recipients and
beneficiaries of government social services favor the Democratic Party.
The reason is obvious. That party represents them and their interests.
It is the party of “We’ll Give You More,” and it makes good on that
promise with staggering reliability.
It is the party of greed, covetousness and envy. It preaches an
entitlement steeped not in gratitude, but resentment. The Democratic
Party promises checks not in the name of compassionate neighbors, but in
the name of classist attack. It teaches recipients to believe that they
are “owed,” with the unavoidable consequence that each new benefit is
only fuel for the fire demanding the next.
The Democrats are the party of the welfare class.
The Republicans are the party of the productive class.
Sadly, the Republicans are not as faithful to the interests of
their natural constituents as are the Democrats – plenty of Republican
politicians are seduced by the ease of buying votes with government
But, basically, that’s how it goes.
If you put in, you’re a Republican.
If you take out, you’re a Democrat.
Once the free-enterprise system slips into the minority, four years from now, a majority of American households will be on one
government dole or another, and the Democrats’ permanent majority will
At that point, the electoral process will be reduced to
representative kleptocracy, where the growing majority will simply vote
itself a larger and larger check.
That’s why this election is important.
It’s something significantly more than a choice between two
individuals. It’s only secondarily about Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
It’s primarily about whether America clings to some scraps of capitalism
or slips irretrievably into socialism.
Because it’s looking like Kruschev was right.
In 1959, he told Americans that their grandchildren would be communists. Scoffed at then, he has been essentially proven right.
“You Americans are so gullible,” the Soviet premier said. “No,
you won't accept Communism outright; but we'll keep feeding you small
doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you
already have Communism. We won't have to fight you; we'll so weaken your
economy, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands."
Can any honest observer deny that that has taken place? Can any
honest observer deny that this November’s election is a fork in the
road, back to the free American marketplace with its belief in the
possession of property, or onward to the lowest common denominator of
“The proletariat will be the undertakers of capitalism,” the
communists say, paraphrasing Marx, and in November they may be literally
It is inconceivable that in this society half of the population
is truly incompetent or handicapped. It is unbelievable that half of the
world’s largest economy is populated with people who would perish
without a government teat to suck. We cannot be that dysfunctional.
But we can be that lazy.
And unless this election gives capitalism – the right to live by
the sweat of your own brow – another chance to prove its worth, the
next cycle will find a majority of voters seduced and lost to the belief
in something for nothing.
Yes, the president will attack corporations and banks and oil
companies, as well as successful individuals and industries. He will
sing from the songbook of communist class warfare.
And almost half the country will agree with him.
Which will leave the other half of us with not only the bills to pay, but the country to save.
