I Can’t Trust Socialists When They Keep Lying to Me

Opinion

Lies vs Truth
The media tells us not to believe our eyes and ears, that a politician didn’t say what they said. That works for a while.

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Lying to the public is both easier and harder than it used to be. Politicians used to say one thing to one voting block and then say the opposite to another. Now we can uncover those lies in a few seconds on the net. Unfortunately, the mainstream media makes it easier for politicians to lie. The media tells us not to believe our eyes and ears, that a politician didn’t say what they said. To some degree, we want to believe the lies and pretend we can have something for nothing. That works for a while.

I can’t believe Socialist politicians [not that we ever did] any longer because I’ve heard too many self-serving lies. They twist the truth on a regular basis. Here is what they say, what we hear, and what they mean.

  • Socialist politicians said we need to know if foreigners interfered in our elections. We thought that meant that elections should be fair and honest. Socialists meant that they can conduct a witch hunt against political Conservatives, but the Socialists then voted to let foreigners vote in our elections.
  • Socialists said walls don’t work. We heard that everyone has human rights. What Socialists politicians meant is that walls work around their mansions, but a secure border keeps out the new voters that Socialists need to stay in power.
  • Socialist politicians said everyone deserves free healthcare. We thought that meant cheap insurance. Socialists meant babies can be killed at any time before or after birth. Socialists healthcare doesn’t include medical aid to sick people in Venezuela.. aid which the Socialists Venezuelan government burned at the border.
  • Socialists said we need open immigration. We heard that America is the land of opportunity. Socialists meant that Socialist Hondurans are welcome, but not Venezuelan refugees who hate communism, and definitely not German homeschooling families who want a government small enough to leave them alone.
  • Socialists said that education should be free. We heard that student loans would be interest-free. What the Socialists meant is that we’d have to go to government-controlled schools.
  • Socialists said they support the first amendment, the right to assemble, to petition the government, and right of free speech. We heard that they support the right of open debate. Socialists meant that they get to decide who may speak on campus, in the news, and on social media. Hate speech is anything the Socialists don’t like. The victims of illegal immigrants were threatened with arrest when then gathered in the halls of Congress.
  • Socialist politicians said they respect the Second Amendment. We heard that our rights were safe. Socialists politicians meant they want guns for them, but not for ordinary citizens.
  • Socialists politicians said we need more gun control. We heard that criminals wouldn’t get firearms. Socialists meant that a government employee could confiscate your guns, but that a gun shop owner couldn’t call the cops when an illegal alien tried to buy a gun illegally. Funny that the feds will prosecute us for a paperwork error, but the feds ignore tens of thousands of felons who try and buy guns illegally.
  • Socialists said we need to confiscate guns to stop the “national emergency” of violence. We heard that all guns would go away. Socialist politicians meant they’d take away our firearms, but would have guns to protect them and their families. No one talked about how we’d get guns away from criminals.

Socialism says it is for “the people”.. except when it starves them and then deprives them of food and medicine. In fact, Socialism means political elites use government power to rule everyone else. Unfortunately, too many millennials think they are the elite.

I’ve heard too many lies to believe Socialists now.

    1. You can not believe a word any of them say, they are all liars and are out for their own good. They will come to take anything they want from us and pass an illegal law to do it. Resistance is necessary to maintain any freedom. I am speaking of a lot of republicans, also. Defeat them at the voter booth and send them on their merry way to try to control someone else. Maybe they will get shot trying. We and they will not realize what has been lost until it finally happens. At that point they will say they screwed up but not until then.

    2. Politicians (both parties), the Media, Democrat voters, liberals, socialists, lawyers, the Federal government (bureaucrats & supervisors), big business and most teachers & college professors all lie. The truth has lost its value in America today except among those of us who grew up in other times when it was still valued and among the few honest, moral patriotic and ethical Americans remaining. It is an uphill struggle for us and it may be too late to win, but not too late to not continue the struggle.

    3. With so many people leaving socialist country’s to move to America where they think they will be free, will they move out of America when they are oppressed after they become citizens of America ? Or will they just open their own little black market enterprises and rake in the money then go back to their homelands

    4. The GOAL of socialism IS COMMUNISM” – Vladimir Lenin

      “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” ― Norman Thomas

      “The difference between Democrats and Republicans is: Democrats have accepted some ideals of socialism cheerfully, while Republicans have accepted them reluctantly.” ― Norman Thomas

      Since the ultimate goal of socialism IS communism, we best prepare for a good fight. A fight worth saving our nation.

      1. Democrats are in fact Commiecrats, at least that’s what I call them. And I agree we’d better prepare for a fight. A bloody civil war, in fact, because that’s what THEY want. They’re on record as wanting to round up and eliminate all the conservatives & Christians. And, after what I’ve seen happen to this country as we’ve slowly allowed the socialist cancer among us metastasize, I believe that General Augusto Pinochet had the right idea: throw the damn commies out of helicopters. Any who don’t get the hint and leave the country should be the recipients of their own plan and be rounded up and eliminated. Decency and the well-being of the rest of us DEMANDS IT!!

          1. Clark, which is why we don’t want Socialists having political power, Socialism is antithesis of the founding principles of our nation, which is a Democratic Republic.

    5. “Unfortunately, too many millennials think they are the elite.”

      That about sums it up. Why do they think anyone would be happier – or even willing – working to maintain their lifestyles, than they would be to maintain their own?

      My response to socialists is simply, “No, you can’t have my stuff.”
