socialism: noun, 1. any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. 2. a: a system of society or group living in which there is NO private property. b: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state. 3: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.
definition of communism
Source: Webster’s Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary, 1965 ( I find that old dictionaries are really the best source for looking up the actual meanings of words.)
Note: Communism has never once resulted in an equal distribution of goods, not once, not ever. It has resulted in totalitarianism, in dictatorships, in the end of freedoms and freedom. It has resulted in re-programming, book burning, mass murder, people starving to death, freezing to death, dying from common illnesses, population control, genocide. It has resulted in two tiered societies, wherein there are two classes of people, the very many whom are very poor, and the ruling class of the very few whom are very wealthy.
So, there are the definitions. The Green New Deal would take control of energy and health care out of the private sector and give that control to the government. The government would then decide how they wanted to distribute those resources. It would set the stage for the end of private ownership of housing, and private means of transportation. There are politicians in the U.S. now openly running for office on socialist platforms with a socialist, if not communist, agenda, and they are doing so counting on the American people being ignorant. That they could, or would, even consider openly running on such ideas in the United States is a slap in the face, a complete insult, to every member of our military whom ever fought against such to preserve our freedom, and sovereignty, and an insult to the intelligence of every American. Every now and then our society seems to go through a phase where these ideas temporarily come into vogue, sometimes that’s more dangerous than others. Socialism and Communism do not work, and are a threat to our FREEDOM, to our free society and way of life in the United States.

I would hope that all voters in the U.S. would take the time to educate themselves before they vote.
And that’s what I have to say about that.
We’re not “all gone”. Here’s hoping this just stays a great old movie from the 80s.
God Bless Harry Dean Stanton, and Patrick Swayze.
