Venezuelans Warn America Of Socialism, Will We Listen?

February 8, 2019| by Donn Marten

For the first time since the rise of the so-called Resistance that is fueled on racial and class resentment, one man had the courage to say NO to the prospects that the United States would usher in the failed ideology of socialism as promoted by Comrade Bernie Sanders and taco bar revolutionary Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

That man is Donald J. Trump and in what may go down as his finest hour, the president used the nationally televised State Of The Union Address to draw the line against the imposition of socialism.

It was a towering moment reminiscent of Winston Churchill’s famous Iron Curtain speech in which he warned America of the dangers of the communists while the ashes of WW II were still smoldering and thanks to gross ignorance, a failed public education system and a lost generation of millennials weaned on participation trophies, the nation is perilously close to making a historical mistake.

A quote from a Venezuelan in the article:

Quote
“We also thought that this could never happen in our country. We had a balance of powers, we had democracy, and we elected our leaders.”

This is why we don't have a Democracy, we have a Representative Republic.  It's also precisely why leftists on both sides of the aisle, and virtually everybody in the press calls us a "democracy."   So they can be one of the wolves outvoting the sheep on what's for dinner.
I will NOT comply.

Title and question:
"Venezuelans Warn America Of Socialism, Will We Listen?"

My prediction:
No, we will not.

America faces a period of near-totalitarian rule by the democrat-communists at some point. Those of the red states who oppose this will be left with but two choices:
- Attempt a peaceful "separation" of the [formerly] United States of America,
or...
- Face the prospect of an armed conflict to overthrow the democrat-communists.

What other alternative is possible, folks...?

Some say they deserve what they are getting because they elected these people BUT... fraudulent elections happen, maybe Chavez got in their legitimately but there might be a chance, some of the elections later were not legitimate.

As has been posted before, Nixon ran into some trouble there as VP in 1959:

Sorry...

One step at a time, we certainly have some ding bat leftwingers around... combine them with a few other voting blocs?
