There was an attempt to tax the rich in 1894. It went all the way to the Supreme Court and the they declared it unconstitutional. Tariff taxes allowed American industries to improve and they began to produce steel to build railroads, steamboats and appliances for farms. In fact, the standard of living was raised faster than at any other period in world history.
Increasingly we’re hearing a rallying cry for socialism in our society. Free healthcare, free education, free food, free housing, free public transportation, free childcare, guaranteed jobs and free welfare for the poor. Certain politicians are fanning the flames of the mobs to change our government, our constitution, and our way of life as a nation. Do we really want to go the way of Russia, Communist China, Cuba or Venezuela? Is socialism a wonderful utopia or is it a totalitarian nightmare? Will everything be free or will deep-state bureaucrats decide who gets what? Is there a difference between socialism and communism?
Socialism is hitting America like a tidal wave striking at our values, our private property rights, at parental authority, at religious freedom and the very heart and soul of our U.S. Constitution. As we discussed on a recent program, this issue is really a revolution in the making to completely dismantle our constitutional republic and turn it over to socialism. It’s confronting us in numerous ways and what happens in this election will greatly determine the destiny of our nation.
