Remember Zimbabwe? A socialist leader gets elected, confiscates all the land from the wealthy white folks and hands it over to the poor black folks. Then he raises taxes to almost 100% on the wealthy, starts writing checks to the poor, and wonders why inflation skyrockets while tax revenue drops to almost nothing.
In order to control inflation, he resorts to price fixing. And the economy suffers even more.
Zimbabwe is a perfect example of socialism implemented all the way. It should be a shining example of why you can’t take from the rich and give to the poor and get anything but misery as a result.
But it gets better! See, since socialism and communism are never popular, they have to be kept in power with fists, clubs, and guns. There was an election, an election which the current president of Zimbabwe clearly lost. Rather than step aside and let the new government in, he is keeping the election results hidden so no one can know who really won. Meanwhile, his thugs are beating up the opposition. (link)
This is where socialism gets you, folks. This is what the future of America looks like if we elect socialist democrats.
Oh, and by the way, if it were a corporation beating up her opponents, the government could easily step in and throw those responsible in jail or seize the corporation’s assets.
When it’s the government doing the beatings, you have no recourse except armed rebellion. Only one problem: You gave all your guns to the government, and so now you have no recourse except to smile so they can knock out all your teeth. Here’s why Tiananmen Square and the Myanmar uprising and every rebellion that didn’t involve people who were heavily armed ended up dead.
This is why us 2nd Amendment folks will never give up our guns, even if the feds try to come and get them.
