The Conundrums of Socialism in America

Socialism is a failed experiment. As a result, citizens must be tricked into accepting socialism in small pieces. When citizens have been sufficiently lulled, the rest can be completed by gentle or not-so-gentle force. When that force occurs, socialism becomes communism.

For all those who are currently pushing America toward socialism due to their supposed hatred of capitalism, several problems exist.

Michele Hickford (Allen, 5/26/15) has outlined the six conundrums of socialism in the United States.

  • America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized.
  • Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.
  • They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.
  • Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.
  • The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things people in other countries only dream about.
  • They have things people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

So, America is at the stage of its development in which a large number of citizens have been duped into believing they are incapable of anything without the government “equalizing” everything for them. They have become what Stalin called “useful idiots” in service of promoting socialism/communism.


As Khrushchev stated, America would be defeated from within. When Americans are incapable of seeing the obvious inconsistencies outlined above, the nation is well on the way to destruction.

About Doc

I am a Psychologist and a veteran of the Vietnam War. I work with abused children and with agencies which try to both prevent abuse and to empower those who have been abused. I feel strongly about child abuse and take every action I can to prevent it and to support the children I work with who have experienced it. I also feel strongly about politics and especially the course being taken by our nation. I believe that America is at a critical point in its development. How we answer the challenges from Islamic fascists and from our own internal enemies in the media, government, and academia will determine America’s future and the future of our children. I believe that if we don’t take the correct course now, America will go the way of Europe and that we will not reach the potential set out by our founding fathers. I believe that it is now getting serious. My gravitar is from "Darkman".
