Socialism a danger to America

Obviously we have many in America who have little knowledge of history and current happenings.

Gov. Kemp won here in Georgia by a slim margin.  His opponent was a lady with Socialist progressive ideas, and many already elected in the U.S. Congress have exposed their socialist bent with intent to spread their poison throughout our country.  A brief study of history should plainly show that socialism has failed and lowered the standard of living for all except the few who institute it and skim the cream from the top, leaving bear sustenance for the vast numbers who foolishly voted them in.  

The newly elected Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York has garnered a massive following. I can only surmise that she and those who follow her are ignorant of history.  She stated that the world would be destroyed in 12 years if we didn't address climate change.  A display of stupidity which many believe and follow.  

How many jobs, businesses, have Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Ocasio-Cortez or any career politician run or created which made America a better place?  I can't think of a single one, yet they want to tell you how to run our nation, your lives, tho' if you research their past you will find that it is not something you want as an example for anything you respect and love.

Our country, which all people from everywhere want to live in, was built on the exact opposite ideals and progressive socialism the above few named represent and promote.  The sad part which I cannot comprehend is the sheeplike herds of parasitic followers who with little thought and study should plainly see that every "ism" except capitalism is not for the people, only those holding power.

God, freedom, and capitalism have raised the standard of living for more humans than anything ever in the history of mankind.  Our forefathers left us a Constitutional republic with Ben Franklin's caution, "if you can hold it.”

Let us get together and hold it.
