Socialism. Why Not?

Let’s be honest…

You know you’re Smarter than most people.

You’re certain the only thing that happens when other people are given the ability to make their own decisions is they make the wrong ones…

It’s clear to you that everyone is better off having Smart folks like you in charge of things…

Why?  Because life is complicated, and requires the best and brightest to navigate it… especially for everyone else.

Of course You believe in Freedom!

Freedom is not having to constantly make choices about everything…

Of course You believe in Liberty!

Liberty is not having a bunch of responsibilities taking away from the stuff you want to do…

But you also believe in Good Government!

Because Government is the source of all things good in the World…

You weren’t born yesterday… you know what’s Bad!

Corporations are the root of all things Bad…

You also know who the Racists are!

You know for a fact that anyone who opposes the things you think to be true are racists… even those who are minorities.

And you realize the debate is Over!

You are Far too Intelligent… to argue with anyone who doesn’t agree with you.

In the End… There is no question You must save the rest of us from Ourselves.

And, if all it takes is forcing a bunch of people to make the right decisions…

Why Not?


The Truth Shall Set you Free

Democrat Rep. Janice Hahn spreads myth about Statue of Liberty to defend open borders

Posted at 9:51 am on August 2, 2014 by Twitchy Staff

Rep. Janice Hahn, D-Calif., is upset that the House passed two measures to speed up the deportation of Central Americans who illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border.

In the tweet at the top of this post, she claims that the U.S. has abandoned a “promise” that was etched onto the Statue of Liberty. She’s talking about the poem The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus, which has come to symbolize the Statue of Liberty even though that was not the intent of those who built the statue.

As Roberto Suro, a professor at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication, noted in 2009, France gave the Statue of Liberty to the U.S. to commemorate the Revolutionary War. Those of you who learned history before the advent of Common Core may recall that France assisted the colonies in that war, and that the American Revolution served as an inspiration for the French Revolution. At the time, France’s gift had nothing to do with allowing Honduran gangbangers to enter the country illegally.

The bronze plaque with Lazarus’ poem was a gift from Georgina Schuyler, a New York philanthropist. It was installed inside a stairway within the pedestal beneath the statue itself in 1903, almost two decades after the statue opened. As Suro notes, “There was no ceremony when it was placed on a stairway landing inside the pedestal. For decades it went largely unnoticed, a memorial to a writer and reformer who died young rather than a defining inscription for the statue.”

Who decided to install the Lazarus plaque? Congress? The President? No. The War Department had authority over the statue between 1901 and 1932. The decision to install the poem in the statue’s pedestal was not a “promise” that “we as a nation” made. Rather, it was a decision made by an unknown War Department bureaucrat who neither spoke for the American people nor had any authority over U.S. immigration policy.

Do you think the racists at La Raza give a crap about what the Statue of Liberty stands for?  Does Emma say anything about Reconquista?

Clearly the Progressive Socialists do not.  At least not Democrat Socialists like Janice Hahn.
