I can only tell you of being raised in
a home in a post Hitler era. It scared
the crap out of me. Never forget.
Try not to repeat.

post-hitler era? hitler ran national socialist party - slightly (gee, not really slightly!!) diferrent from socialism... hitler preached equality for germans... while everyone else could just go to hell... socialism is different - and we already preach it, when we say that everyone has an equal shot at the american dream, everyone gets equal pay, everyone has equal rights, all the minority groups have equal rights... this is the socialism... add to the that the police state we are in (the USA), and you are approching the germany circa mid-30ies...
scary!!!

Our Republic is of equal opportunity
Everybody has a shot on their own.
Not everyone has to take from another
to then get their shot. Individualism.
You might recall it. Make it on your
own and take resposibilty for
yourself.

this reminds me of a law of the jungle - we are not savages... if i see someone falls on a street, i will offer a helping hand... why do we not extend the individualism standard to other countries?...


check out foreignassistance.gov, and tell me that that money given away could not do us better here in the US...

Charity is the helping hand. Not taxation.

I did... And am old enough to remember and understand the difference. And can only see the downslope at this point. When I moved to US 23 years ago, I thought it would be my first and only emigration. No longer sure about that!
