Hey Everyone!  let’s hear a grand ‘ol “yippee!” for socialism!   

After all it’s been proven over and over to be a governmental ideology that is an absolute delight to live under.   

I mean, don’t comments like this just make you want to celebrate governmental control?  

“Venezuela’s economic collapse is due to many factors: falling oil prices that have reduced the country’s revenue, but also a socialist revolution that has resulted in the expropriation of more than 1,200 companies and the imposition of stifling price and foreign exchange controls that have crushed businesses and slashed national production.”   –  Peter Wilson, Special for USA TODAY

Soooo… Yea Socialism!!!   right?  

Hrrm…what if I told you that…

“Europe’s socialism has, over the last several decades, generated few private sector jobs and lags in growth when compared to the United States with its comparatively lighter hand of government.”  –

  1. In the history class that I teach we were talking last week about how people vote by migrating. How many left East Germany to live in West Germany? (3.5 million in the twelve years before they built the Berlin wall.) How many left West Germany to live in East Germany? (Hardly anyone.) How many took the opportunity to leave Cuba for the United States in 1980? (about 125,000) How many left the United States to live in Cuba? (Fewer than a hundred, I’m sure) The list continues–how many leave free market economies to live under socialism? Not very many. So why would someone living in a free market economy want to adopt socialism? J.

      Never forget that our government runs our education system. Government-run education forms the core of Socialism. Also, never forget how the mass media seeks to sell us at all costs to the advertisers. Being sold is not at all the same as being informed or educated.

      Unfortunately, most of us do not learn wisdom. Most of us don’t bother to think beyond the immediate consequences. We even sin and then blithely justify our sins as a great and necessary things. When I consider my own experience, I think I understand how we can become so warped.

      I don’t consider myself extraordinary. My parents were not world’s best or worst, and I was not especially smart or dumb. I did many good and many wrong things.

      What did I do wrong? I watched too much TV. Instead of considering how I might best serve God, I pursued a career. I became an agnostic.

      Nevertheless, in my fifties I repented. Why? When I declared my agnosticism, my mother stubbornly insisted I was a Christian. What she meant is that my parents had inculcated Christian values into me, and they had most certainly tried.

      As I got older, I realized that unless Jesus was God the world did not make much sense. Puzzled, I started reading the Bible, trying to figure out how Jesus fit in. At about the same time, I encountered a difficult period in my life. The Bible helped me to know God. My need forced me to admit I need God.

      I suspect what is true of me is true of a great many in this nation. So perhaps we can turn our nation around. However, before we can turn our nation around, we need to do something more important. We need to pray and work for a revival.
