Between President Obama and one of the most liberal congressional delegations in decades under the leadership of Harry “We Lost The War” Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the San Francisco treat, everything is fair game for Democrats to socialize. They have moved to tax the air we breathe and have adopted measures that will amount to the greatest transfer of wealth ever known to man. Eleven months after Joe the Plumber’s question prompted then Senator Barack Obama to offer the now infamous statement quoting him as hoping to be able to “spread the wealth”, his wishes are coming true.
Like children in a candy store, the unchecked liberal led federal government are rapidly rushing to put government in charge of everything including the money that once flowed through a merit based free market economy. Under President Obama, Majority Leader Reid and Speaker Pelosi, the government is God and it, not the free market controls who is or isn’t wealthy, when and where people receive medical attention, what cars we drive, what industries survive and how much a farmer can be charged for the gassy emissions of his cows.
Without realizing it, gleeful liberals and ignorant Democrats who are blissful over the election of President Obama and the liberal led Congress are seeing the socialism that our nation once fought, now spread from border to border and sea to shining sea.
Like pet rocks and marshmallow heeled shoes, socialism id the in thing. It is the trend du jour and once shy supporters of this anti-American system of governance have come out from under the rocks they occupy to celebrate and rejoice in the socialist system that will eventually run out of the peoples money that they spend for us.
The rise of socialism shows itself in likely and unlikely places. One likely place is on that Mecca of free speech and thinking, the internet.
On one internet web site, U4Prez.com, socialism has reached an all time peak of support among its field of candidates who run a virtual race for President. U4Prez is a social network for politics. It is largely a site for political debate and through several creative platforms, U4Prez allows participants to make their point on any and every issue under the sun. Those who participate in the site are called candidates and through a system of weekly primaries and a rating system that allows “candidates” to register their levels of support for other “candidates”, a virtual campaign for President is waged. Come November the winners of the Independent, Republican and Democrat primaries run against each other for the presidency.
Along the way, candidates even select party leaders. After President was sworn into office U4Prez saw some candidates organize a U4prez Socialist Party. Membership in that party did not exactly swell but it did get support and its few members were persistent and vehement in their promotion of socialist values and policies.
But recently the leader of the U4Prez party snapped and resigned, leaving socialists on the site rudderless. In a statement issued by the U4Prez Socialist Party leader, he articulated his frustration with trying to get through to Republicans and conservatives who are offended by socialism and consistently denounce the antithetical role that it plays in reference to our Constitution and American life in general.
In what is a demonstration of the ingenuity of capitalism, socialism was finally given a purpose and value. But in another demonstration of how good citizenry doesn’t put personal profit over individual compassion which need not be legislated by government, any profit from the auction is going to a subsidiary of the Humane Society called Popcorn Park Zoo, a rehabilitation and natural habitat facility in New Jersey.
For those of us who believe in a government of the people, by the people and for the people but do not believe in a government controlling every aspect of the people’s lives, placing socialism on the auction block is an extraordinary symbolic gesture. We see no value in socialism and as such we started bidding at 1 penny, or as it were, one RED cent. Placing socialism up for auction is the only way we see for it to have any value.
In another very symbolic gesture, the current high bid for socialism is, one cent, an indication of the fact that socialism is really not worth anything more than one red cent.
Now more than ever, political passions run deep in America. After a summer of town hall events marked by a wide divide of different opinions, political debate rages and it does so nowhere more than on U4pPrez.com.
Get involved. Add your two cents to the process. Visit U4Prez.com, become a candidate, join the discussion and run for President. You just might be better than the current occupant of the White House.
