Haven’t we already heard what today’s Democrats are spouting? True, it was about a century ago, but we know about the Nazis. Their real name was the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Originally, they were anti-big business, anti-bourgeois and anti-capitalist. Then, they became anti-Semitic. Oh, wait. There were also the Bolsheviks. They overthrew the czar during the “Great Socialist Revolution.” Once again, they were anti-bourgeois, anti-big business and eventually anti-Semitic.

Yes, socialism sounds sweet — but like a lemon its fruit is very tart. The Nazis and the Bolsheviks took all the money from the bourgeois and crippled big business. So then where did they get their money? After all, nothing is free. Businesses get the money to pay taxes from the goods and services they sell, so their taxes are paid by their customers. The money the rich have won’t last long, so where will the money come from? It can only come from you.
