Carl Fowler awaits proof from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
Nancy Pelosi’s hypocrisy and ridicule that bleats Republicans are a danger to our democracy flies against all logic, common sense and facts. Republicans are not the party that tries to control national elections, to pack the Supreme Court, to abolish the Electoral College, etc. His ploy, and that of all the other Democrats in Congress, is that of the typical Marxists – blame the other party for what they themselves are guilty of.
Pelosi and the Washington Democrats’ irrational hatred for Donald Trump and their fear of him is that he drove an adjustable wrench into their plan that Hillary Clinton was to pursue Barack Obama’s strategy to “turn America” ââinto a Marxist country. Their plan was a well-tested machine whose gears were shattered by Trump’s unexpected victory in 2016. Since then, and throughout Trump’s four years as president and beyond, Marxists in Washington have attempted to destroy Trump and his common sense approach to running the country. His leadership has resulted in the “peace and prosperity” that all presidential candidates promise for the country, but few achieve. It ended with the advent of Covid 19, a boon to Biden, Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, and the acronym called AOC to win back the government and pursue their goal of taking over Obama’s strategy. For the first time in American history, a presidential election was won by a candidate who campaigned (?) From his cellar and did not answer any questions.
Recently, Pelosi was quoted as saying that capitalism is OK for our country, but it is not enough. The implication is that Marxism (state control) is necessary to make America complete. rubbish! The citizens of countries in which government is controlled by Marxists have extreme poverty, hunger and little freedom, including China, the crown jewel of Marxist governments.
Not so long ago, I saw a photo of Beijing, a beautiful modern city with spectacular architecture. The question is, is Beijing the real China? Equally spectacular is Hong Kong, also a Chinese city. The difference is that Hong Kong was once a thriving capitalist city until the British surrendered control to the Chinese Communist Party whose army soon invaded the city to make the citizens of this gem of mainland China oppressed subjects of the regime. Marxist. Pelosi could verify with the citizens of Hong Kong the benefits of Marxism and with the citizens of Cuba while she is at it. She could also ask these citizens why they are revolting against the Communist regime.
However, it is not necessary to seek examples of Marxism on foreign shores. During Donald Trump’s last State of the Union address, any noise coming from the Democratic side of the House of the House that seemed to agree with a statement from Trump made Pelosi’s index finger move towards it. side of the House whose sycophants immediately padlocked their mouths. Then at the end of Trump’s speech, Pelosi showed his contempt for free speech and Donald Trump by standing up and, like a Grand Opera character, tore a copy of his speech to shreds. Beyond common courtesy, is there a better demonstration of a Marxist’s contempt for a free society? The symbolism of the act transcends the act itself, that is, the only acceptable belief is that which accords with one’s own.
It was capitalism that rebuilt Japan and Germany after World War II, so that these two countries are now among the most prosperous in the world. If Russia had taken control of these two countries as it did half of Germany, the countries would be equivalent to Venezuela today. In fact, East Germany, controlled by the Russians, offered a stark contrast to West Germany, the latter under the influence of Western democracies. It was only after East Germany was reunited with West Germany that it also achieved capitalist freedom and prosperity.
If, by nefarious means, Marxism were to prevail against capitalism in America, the young people who believe that socialism is superior to capitalism will learn the truth about Marxist socialism. Their belief that the government will take over from their parents to provide them with food, shelter and clothing, not to mention the latest generation cars and a few hundred dollars in spending money will be brutally shattered. The kind of jobs Marxists ordered for them will not have the $ 30,000 starting salary that many young people expect when living in their parents’ house until they are 30 years old. In fact, they might even have to work in a restaurant where many jobs are available today. The utopian promises of a Marxist government are illusory.
Show us the proof, Nancy, that Marxism is a necessary complement to capitalism. To say that it is so does not make it so.
