Kingman Letter: Beware of power-hungry socialists

What is a Socialist Government?

It is a government that takes in all of the income generated by its people and distributes it fairly based on needs. The government, instead of private companies, controls the industries. It is based on the idea that an elite few should make certain that everything is fair to everybody and that you are provided for by the government instead of providing for yourself.

Karl Marx posited that socialism would be achieved via class struggle and a proletarian revolution, it being the transitional stage between capitalism and communism.

It was George Orwell who said, "By bringing the whole of life under the control of the State, Socialism necessarily gives power to an inner ring of bureaucrats, who in almost every case will be men who want power for its own sake and will stop at nothing in order to retain it."

After misconstruing the 47% comment, the Romney campaign rightfully brought out but one of the several obama comments that he believes in "redistributing the wealth" a communist/marxist tenet completely against our way of life.

The American way, hard work will take you as far as you want to go, sharing comes in the form of charitable giving by your own hand such as the Romney's giving 30% of their earnings to charity in 2011. Hey obama, it's called FREEDOM!

Obama has succeeded at two things. Class warfare and lying. When asked real questions as Univision did, he has no answers - just stumbles around.

The real question - are you better off than four years ago. Most are not.

Four years of unemployment over 8%. He said it would be 5.6.

No budget in 3 years, never meets with jobs commission.

Highest black unemployment in decades, hispanics second.

Won't allow oil drilling, thru EPA holding up permits for years but helped billionaire friend Soros make millions in So American oil co's.

Sent most stimulus money overseas. OUR TAX DOLLARS.

Least amount of people employed in decades.

Completely corrupt Dept of Justice.

Anti - Israel, pro muslim countries that hate us.

Not held accountable for the deaths of the four Americans in Libya where they had no security, verified in the Ambassadors handwriting in his journal by CNN.

Why would ANYONE vote for this lying loser who spends most days on the golf course, turned the east room into a bar, has no respect for the office he was elected to.

Romney will win big in November. You can fool some of the people all the time, all the people some of the time but you can't fool all the people all the time. Abe Lincoln.

“this isnt a socialist government. its a facsist, terrorizing government…”

Seriously, all of you need to get together and hold a meeting in local phone booth and decide if Obama is a Communist, Socialist, Fascist or whatever –ist is the buzz word of the day.

every...single...government... in the history of mankind, was corrupt in one way or the other. are you saying, that somehow, some way that will magically change by holding polititians accountable for their lies, only to replace them with different puppets?

this isnt a socialist government. its a facsist, terrorizing government which has no morals and no allegiance to its people. It would love nothing more than to strip you of any and all liberties in the name of safety, security and political correctness, preying on the fear of the weak. slowly raising a new generation of young, brain-washed, mindless cowards, that have no moral foundation coupled with sub par education to stand against it, all the while, traveling around the world, either attacking or sanctioning other countries into submission if they do not conform to our way of life. that...that is what the U.S goverment has become.

@ TJ

It is only the way of the world because people accept it and don't hold their elected representatives accountable.

Its time to stop being lazy.

@Doing Research

The last sentence of your comments got a belly laugh from me.

Humor aside that line contains more truth than all the other submitted comments combined.

Know your Congressman or woman and their activities on your behalf so you can hit SAVE or DELETE in November.

Close... Don't forget that Socialism is supposed to be initiated with the intent of arriving at full Communism as the goal. "Transitional stage" is intentionally vague - that's like saying the ability to eat solid foods is the "transitional stage" between being an infant and being elderly.

This is how a day goes if you're under a REAL socialist system:
-Take public transportation to your....
-Job at a government-owned farm or factory
-Work all day not expecting a paycheck
-Get off work and go to the single government-ran store in town
-Pick up your rations of food or goods produced that are all exactly the same as what your neighbor has
-Go home via public transportation
-Watch 1 to 3 channels of government-owned TV or radio
-Sleep on your government-issued bed

Now, when this stuff starts happening to you, please let me know. Until then, how about you focus on details like "is my congressperson an idiot or not?"

Based on this post we are a very long way away from being a Socialist government. Also based on the above the election of Willard the Money Hider would move us very close to a Facist government.
