Remember when the wall came down? How proud we were that socialism had been defeated and that freedom, democracy, and the American dream and ideal had won the day? Socialism failed on a grand worldwide scale. It’s promise was a pipedream, built upon the sweat of a population that slowly found itself unable and unwilling to keep toiling for no reward.

Kennedy himself famously warned against: Asking of their country what they are unwilling to provide for themselves. A recipe for national disaster. No need to earn what one believes he is entitled to…

Not long ago this country was the greatest country on the face of the earth. Capitolism and free markets created vast wealth and alleviated great suffering, and reached out to the world with a helping hand up. Now we turn our back on what got us there, criticizing ourselves for our greatness and attacking our own who lead us to that greatness as if they were pure evil for providing such promise.
It’s an American shame.
