The following thoughts were written by a friend of mine recently. I concur with the point being made about the subtlety of Communism and how it creeps into our lives on a daily basis. As for the naysayers out there who want to scream “conspiracy theory,” I say you are part of the problem. YOU are feeding the cancer that eats away at our nation. I will echo Grant Swanson’s thoughts here on Louisiana Conservative in hopes that more people will read it and pass it along. He says, “I speak to many people about the trouble our great nation is in and I am ashamed to see so many good people who have already given up on any possible chance of saving our freedoms. Instead of arguing with them, I have put pen to paper and now I just hand out this article. Please post it for all to see.”
So here it is – and in the meantime, have you told your kids how much you love your country today?
Tyranny comes slowly but surely.
If I kicked in the front door of your home and took your children and grandchildren to sell them into slavery, what would you do? You would fight me off or call the Police, wouldn’t you?
Well, what if I came in the form of a cute little pink bunny rabbit on a children’s program? What if I was your child’s friendly teacher? I would smile and talk to your children every day and tell them little lies about bad things and evil people like you.
And, slowly but surely I would turn them against you. Then, when they are older, they would eventually walk out the front door on their own and into captivity. What would you do then? Would you be able to fight me? Would you be able to call the Police?
Time is corrosive! It gives evil the room to work its horror. At first people fight, scream, and rage against the corruption and lies. But then, people become complacent and weak because the struggle appears never-ending and hope seems to be lost. They become discouraged, bitter, negative, overwhelmed, and eventually self-defeating. This is how tyranny works!
You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright. But we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you; we’ll so weaken your economy until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands. ~Khrushchev- 1966 (Russian Leader)
Was Khrushchev right? We may not have had a military coup that changed things overnight, but we have had a gradual attack on our belief in the essential nature of freedom. These ‘small doses of socialism’ have changed America and have been the cause for the gradual loss of much of our freedom.
There are a few things that keep me strong during these hard times. The love I have for my Lord, my kids, my wife, and my country. I also remember the history of the birth of this great nation and the 15% of the population who treasured, fought, supported, and sacrificed their very lives during the Revolutionary War.
So, are you part of the 15%? What about your kids and grand-kids? Are you going to fight when it’s kicking in your front door to take them, or are you simply going to hand them over?
Remember this when you’re telling somebody ‘nothing can be done,’ or ‘they won’t let this happen.’
After reading these thoughts, I would invite you to watch Agenda – Grinding America Down by Curtis Bowers. Will you THEN be fully convinced of what is happening to us. The “village” is slowly taking our children from us…
