Reagan was not a perfect president, but compared to what we’re seeing today, it’s sad to see how far the GOP has fallen
There was one particular item that caught my attention. It was a statement by Soviet Prime Minister Nikita Khrushchev:
“We’ll spoon feed you socialism until you’re Communists and don’t even know it! . . . We assist your elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of Socialism, until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism. Maybe not you, but at all events the day will come when your children and your grandchildren will surely live under communism!”
I wasn’t able to get the source for this, but it’s certainly true. Americans weren’t sold socialism; they were fed a steady diet of it in small doses. In time, they built up a tolerance for more socialism.
The majority of Americans are socialists and don’t even know it. Anybody who talks about “taking away their benefits” will be voted out of office. As NEWSWEEK put it, “We’re All Socialists Now.”
All is not lost, but the road to recovery may be a long one. The fight may be long and hard. Now is the time to commit to the battle that lies ahead.
