Here they come again — those unwelcome, intrusive, pesky, invading and infiltrating stink bugs that slyly and skillfully permeate every nook and cranny of your home and earn their name when physically thwarted and provoked. Darned if they don't remind me of liberal “progressives” intrusively moving “Forward” with their overtly grandiose plan of “social justice” and “spreading the wealth,” slyly masking a covert strategy of implanting socialism.
These stink bugs with ulterior motives have gradually but surely and subtly permeated our schools, churches, labor unions, media and government. And like actual stink bugs, when rebuked or confronted with any commonsense opposition, they stage obnoxious demonstrations of mob protest, raising a lot of stink.
Often quoted is long-ago Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas, who forecast that “one day America will be a socialist nation without knowing it happened.” Just as it's the duty of homeowners to protect their homes from stink bugs, it is, as Thomas Paine said, “the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government.”
Get a grip Clay. Your fear of "socialism" reveals how truly clueless you are. Who are you, some hermit living in a cave with no contact with other humans? If you live in a civilized society "socialism" is a part of it. Do you need anything from the world around you? How about safe drinking water and food? Your mail? The roads you drive on? The fact that your property is yours and the deed is legally recorded is done by government. I'm going to guess and say that you went to public schools. More "socialism"? Unless you are a survivalist living off the land, you need others around you. From the first Europeans coming here ( yes Clay you are a descendent of some European immigrant unwelcomed by the Americans already here) we have been "socialists'. That's how we survive together. It wasn't then, and it isn't now, "every man for himself". I hope you know the conservatives of the 1770's & 1780's were the "tories", loyalists to the British crown. The "liberals" were the radical revolutionaries.
