Jon Rappoport Quote

“Socialism is:
The taking of money (taxes) from some people who work for it and giving it to others who don't work for it. On a grand scale.
The vast expansion of freebies doled out by central government. In order to create and sustain dependence.
The government protection of favored persons and corporations, permitting them and aiding them to expand their fortunes without limit, regardless of what crimes they commit in the process. (Monsanto would be a fine example.)
The squeezing out of those who would compete with the favored persons and corporations.
The dictatorship by and for the very wealthy, pretending to be the servant of the masses.
The lie that the dictatorship is being run by the masses.
The gradual lowering of the standard of living for the overwhelming number of people.
The propaganda claiming socialism is the path to a better world for all.

In other words, socialism is a protection racket and a long con and a heartless system of elite control, posing as the greatest good. It is just another form of top-down tyranny---as old as the hills.”

As it was in the days of Elijah the Tishbite so let it be that those that set themselves in array against President Trump and the Constitutional Republic fall by the sword of their own design.

I'm going to give this one star simply because economic utility is left out, and John Mill the first socialist vehemently used them in conjunction. Like H2O without the right mixture it's not the right product.

Yes, Rappoport should have included the other planks from the Communist Manifesto that the US has already implemented, like a (private) central bank that controls all industry and commerce.
