2018 Midterm Elections: Democratic Socialism or Freedom and Prosperity?

Venezuela: Latin America’s socialist nightmare

Throughout my south Texas childhood, everyone I knew was a Democrat. Prominent Democrats like Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Ronald Reagan who later became a Republican, and our Texas Senators all professed faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Joseph. Even Jimmy Carter claims to be a Christian.

Somewhere, at some time along the way, there was a radical transformation of the Democratic Party. The voters in my south Texas hometown, like me, have left the Democratic Party to vote Republican.

Today’s Democratic Party is atheistic, pro-death,  socialistic, and lawless.

The combination of abject poverty, famine, and waves of refugees in the region have created an explosive situation where no regional power is able to effectively act. Socialism aims to overturn the capitalistic model, which is based on the reality of scarcity and the fostering of competition and aims to usher in a utopian era of plenty. Maduro pledged during his presidential campaign in May to introduce a time of peace and a “prosperous future.” His programs promised food, medicine, and housing, yet Venezuelans are starving in the streets. – Noah Gould

I personally know and have known Cubans who financed Castro’s revolution.  Like Barack Obama, Fidel Castro promised hope and change. The Cuban people got what they want. Sort of. They got a lot of change and lost all hope.

Unlike Cuba, the mess in Venezuela was not forced upon the people; they voted for democratic socialism when they elected Hugo Chavez and they voted for more of it when they voted for the present mandatario Nicolás Maduro, a former bus driver.

At present – 18 June 2018 – Americans experience historic employment, a growing economy, historic opportunities, and spiritual revival as President Trump, with the cooperation of freedom-loving Republican lawmakers, makes good on his promise to make America great again.

Tax cuts left money in the pockets of taxpayers while causing record federal revenue, contrary to the prognostications of Democrat leaders.

Historic low employment of black and Hispanic Americans and the return of capital to these United States has birthed a new prosperity, contrary to the tax-and-spend Obama era. One of the top achievements of this president is the effective repeal of ObamaCare which was the largest tax increase in all American history.

But, despite the peace and prosperity, Democrats demonize these extraordinary gains.

The one-world-government financiers like George Soros and Michael Bloomberg invest millions to unset the Republican congressional majority with a new batch of extreme leftists like Beto O’Rourke who, if elected, will work to increase funding to Planned Parenthood, increase taxes, increase unemployment, kill American industries, disarm law-abiding Americans and convert our country into a socialistic cesspool like Venezuela.

The Nation: Since Trump’s Victory, Democratic Socialists of America Has Become a Budding Political Force (21 Dec. 2017)

Low voter turnout among Republican and independents would assure victory by the radical leftist Democrats.

Let’s keep in mind this simple fact: if good people do not turn out to vote on November 6, the leftists and the uninformed voters will choose a democratic socialist future for you and your progeny.
