You really have to wonder about the mental state of someone who says we have to dump the economic system that has made America the freest and most prosperous country in world history and take up socialism instead. But that’s what alleged comedian Jim Carrey told a Democrat audience last month on Bill Maher’s TV show (https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/09/10/jim-carrey-tells-democrats-we-have-say-yes-socialism/?utm_term=.fa6462afd145). As reported by the Democrat house organ, The Washington Post.
“We have to say yes to socialism,” said the star of Liar, Liar. “We have to stop apologizing,” he counseled Democrats. Go all out for socialism, he said, because socialism will give the American people “a government that cares about them.”
We don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution.
Socialist/Democrat icon Bernie Sanders defines socialism as a form of government in which the government, for all practical purposes, owns all the goods and services produced in the country and decides how to distribute their rewards.
He didn’t say anything about socialist countries running out of food, toilet paper, and free speech.
Yo, Jimbo–name a multi-millionaire comedian who lives and works in Venezuela, Cuba, or North Korea.
Is it even necessary to say that big, swollen, massive government fails catastrophically wherever it exists? Do Democrats think the Soviet Union failed because they didn’t serve enough petit-fours on bridge night in the gulags?
Please, please, please–never again let this party take power in America.
Because you’ll be awfully sorry if you do.
