During the SOTU address, President Trump made the bold claim that America will never be socialist.
This ruffled more than a few feathers, namely Democrats that want socialism. As more Democrats embrace this form of Marxism, countries in South America suffer.
Recently, Trump gave a speech in Miami, boldly denouncing the system and making his intentions clear.
President Trump has seen unprecedented success in his first two years in office. Its success many “experts” claimed would never happen. Why has he been winning so much? Because, along with his bold leadership and years of experience, he’s embracing conservative American traditions.
He’s rolled back massive government overreach. He’s slashed burdensome taxes. And he’s simply put American families ahead of foreign interests and agendas. Big surprise that, when you let Americans pursue their goals, they thrive.
America is made up of hard-working people who want to succeed. They don’t need government pick-me-ups and they don’t need to be held back. But the entire Democratic Party thinks Americans are weak, stupid, and can’t fend for themselves. Their policies are built around expanding government to the point where it controls every aspect of our lives.
In other words: socialism.
People embrace socialism because it sounds good on paper. Everyone gets free money and benefits from the government? The evil rich are taxed to pay for the poor’s healthcare, food, and paychecks? Sign me up!
The reality is far different. Socialist nations plunder the wealth of their countries, leaving a wasteland of hopelessness. The only people who thrive are the ones running the government. There are no jobs, no opportunities, and no freedom. Even the food runs out. If you want to criticize the government and call for change, you are arrested, beaten, or killed.
Socialism is the death of everything America stands for. Yet today, Democrats embrace it as our future.
President Trump once again destroyed the left’s hope of installing socialism onto the United States.
In a wide-ranging rebuke of socialism that seemed targeted as much at Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua as it was at congressional Democrats, Trump remarked: “We know that socialism is not about justice, it’s not about equality, it’s not about lifting up the poor — it’s about one thing only: power for the ruling class. And, the more power they get, the more they crave. They want to run health care, run transportation and finance, run energy, education, run everything. They want the power to decide who wins and who loses, who’s up and who’s down, what’s true and what’s false, and even who lives and who dies.” [Source: Fox News]
This may sound like simply rousing lines from a great speech, but it’s also 100% accurate. Socialism has been a ruse for leftists across the world to gobble up as much power and wealth as they can. Socialist regimes have fleeced citizens of their freedoms, jobs, and futures.
Before a supportive and raucous crowd at Florida International University in Miami Trump announced, flanked by large American and Venezuelan flags, “This will never happen to us. … To those who would try to impose socialism on the United States, we again deliver a very simple message: America will never be a socialist country.”
As the crowd chanted “USA,” Trump, who was joined by first lady Melania Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and National Security Adviser John Bolton, asserted, “The people of Venezuela stand at the threshold of history — ready to reclaim their country and to reclaim their future. Not long ago, Venezuela was the wealthiest nation by far in South America. But, years of socialist rule have brought this once-thriving nation to the brink of ruin. [Source: Fox News]
All you have to do is look at Venezuela to see how socialism fails. The once successful country is nearly third-world today. Their people have no wealth or jobs. Many of them made to scrounge through the garbage for food.
Meanwhile, their corrupt leaders get fat, hording the wealth and resources of the country.
This is what Democrats like Bernie Sanders and AOC want for America. They claim they are only seeking social justice for all. But what they will produce is poverty, ruin, and crime.
America’s only hope is to stick with Donald Trump and his MAGA agenda.
