This Warning by Ronald Reagan Gives Me Chills Today

Ronald Reagan, an American Presidential icon, used to give radio broadcasts to millions of Americans. This was before he became the President of The United States. In those broadcasts he warned about the watering down of socialism in the USA.

Regan specifically noted that most of what we are told about socialism, by socialists, are lies. The praises are empty fables. The idea that the government would provide and take care for us all, giving us just enough to eat and live on, sounds great to some. However, they forget what history has shown us about socialism and how it leads to communism.

The rise and collapse of the Soviet Union tells a story of a much different life. There was no utopia where everyone lived in peace and thrived. It was quite the opposite. There was mass hunger and illness. Those who had more than they needed usually worked for the communist regime but even that was sparse.

The government becomes the only religion you’re allowed to have, and you must have it to survive.

Story continues below:

We do see an active war on religion in the US today but one could argue it's not all religion that is being suppressed or targeted. The watered down message and threat of socialism has allowed us to become numb to its existence. This is a major reason why we're seeing the rise of socialism today.

From James O'Keefe's released videos of Sanders' supporters and even staffers praising Gulags and communism to Bernie's campaign pitches on his own - it's clear that Ronald Reagan's warning from the 70's are manifesting right before our eyes. Paul Batura writes:

In one of his commentaries, Reagan quotes a line he once spoke in a play highlighting the far-left ideology’s danger: “I never knew what freedom was until I saw you lose yours.”

We're seeing the targeted suppression of First Amendment rights all over social media and the Fake News Media. We have politicians calling for the removal of gun ownership. We have folks on the far left calling for the jailing  of people who believe in the Constitution.

It's time for people to wake up and go back and listen to what Ronal Reagan was saying over 40 years ago. We got complacent, yes, but it's now or never time. Socialism is on the rise right now and in November we are going to find out just how many Americans (and non American voters) want to scrap the Bill of Rights. This is massively scary and I don't believe the citizens of this country really want to go down that road.

“The citizens of this great nation want leadership, yes, but not a man on a white horse demanding obedience to his commands,” Reagan said. “I believe this nation hungers for a spiritual revival … to see government once again the protector of our liberties, not the distributor of gifts and privilege.  … Government cannot be clergyman, teacher and parent. It is our servant, beholden to us.”

Does this ring true for you, today? Sound familiar? We must win this battle for survival in November.

  1. Socialism cannot work as a form of government. In order for Socialism to fulfill its promises, every citizen has to be perfect, ready to fulfill his/her obligations, and the leaders cannot harbor selfish desires to better themselves at the expense of its subjects, making the average citizen a slave. No government ism is perfect, because of our sinful nature, but our Democratic Republic does a better job of fair government than most. We will not have perfect government until Jesus returns as He has promised to do.

  2. Please consider, many support Bernie Sanders for President!!
    Much of the information below comes from Wikipedia.
    Interesting read on exactly WHO Bernie Sanders is.
    Is this REALLY who you would vote for to be President??

    In all her years in congress Elizabeth Warren introduced 110 bills. 2 passed. Cory Booker introduced 120 bills. 0 passed. Kamala Harris introduced 54 bills. 0 passed.

    Bernie Sanders is truly special. He never held a job until he was finally elected mayor at age 53. He lived off of welfare and four different women, had a child out-of-wedlock with one, and the three marriages did not work out.

    In all his years in the Senate, he introduced 364 bills. 3 passed. Two of those were to name post offices.

    If you want to know what kind of leader Bernie is, go to Wikipedia, it’s a long report.

    The following is condensed:
    Bernie Sanders’ father was a high school drop-out, who tormented his family with rants about their financial problems. He blamed society and economic inequality for his plight, though as a white male in a middle class neighborhood, he was hardly among the downtrodden. This was Bernie’s inspiration to take up the cause of economic justice, though he would spend half of his life as an able-bodied college graduate living off of unemployment checks, and the women in his life, between odd jobs.

    By his own admission, Bernie was not a great student, starting at Brooklyn College and transferring to Univ. of Chicago, but this enrollment kept him protected from the draft. He joined socialist organizations and dabbled in far-left communist politics, gaining national notoriety by petitioning the school to let students have sex in the dormitories.

    This was before birth control and abortion were legal, when there were still very serious repercussions for women if the condom broke, but that didn’t stop him from crusading against those silly rules that were an obstacle to his own satisfaction. He participated in the 1963 March on Washington, a few demonstrations, and was arrested once, but his activism for civil rights ended when he became obsessed with socialism. NOT “democratic socialism”, but oppressive far-left Marxism.

    Bernie married his college sweetheart, Deborah Shilling, and spent his small inheritance on a summer home in Vermont on 85 acres. The shack had a dirt floor and no electricity, maintaining his proletariat credibility, but not impressing his new bride. He refused to get a steady job, so his wife didn’t stick around long, divorced after 18 months.

    The Viet Nam war was escalating, and when the next draft was announced, Bernie applied for a conscientious objector deferment. His deferment was denied, so he dodged the draft by having a kid out of wedlock in 1969 with his new girlfriend, Susan Mott, even though he STILL wasn’t working, and had no way to support the child. By the time his draft number came up, he was too old to be drafted anyway.

    He continued to subsist on odd carpentry jobs and unemployment checks, and occasionally selling $15 articles, including the one about how women fantasize about gang rape. He still refused to get a steady job to support his child. His girlfriend left him. In 1988 he married Jane Driscoll, and took a cold-war era honeymoon in communist USSR. His new wife supported Bernie financially through his many attempts to win a public office, and shared his radical leftist political views. They visited the pro-Soviet Sandinista Government in Nicaragua known for their human rights violations, support for anti-American terrorists, and the imprisonment and exile of opponents. Bernie blindly overlooked the carnage to stand with fellow socialists.

    They traveled to Cuba in hopes of meeting Bernie’s hero Fidel Castro, but access to him was denied. Bernie Sanders managed not to hold a full-time job his entire life or vote in a single election, until he finally ran for Mayor of Burlington at the age of 40. After several failed elections, he finally won the office of Mayor of Burlington, VT, and eventually a Senate seat, which he has managed to keep off and on. For all of his years representing Vermont, Bernie Sanders passed a total of three bills, and two of them were for naming post offices. He’s a draft-dodging deadbeat dad, a globe-trotting communist dilettante, and a petulant detractor of hard-working honorable Democrats.

    His one skill is yelling about how unfair the world is, and how everything SHOULD be.

    But he has no plans for how to make it happen, and no idea what goes on in the rest of the world or how to deal with problems overseas. His excuse for not having a foreign policy or national security plank on his platform: “I’ve only been campaigning for three months.”

    His socialist friends are bitter about what they see as a betrayal of their values by Bernie’s pursuit of the Democratic nomination. His former wives and girlfriends run when they see reporters and will not speak to the press.

    Bernie’s past, including a brief stint living in a kibbutz in Israel is cloaked in secrecy. (It worked for B Hussein.)

    Former employees and coworkers describe him as hostile and belligerent. All of the Democrats in Vermont’s government endorsed Hillary Clinton.

    The people who know Bernie best cannot stand him. His supporters cannot explain how he is qualified to be president.

    1. PLEASE explain how we can get ‘the word” out to all those young people who have ‘free’ stars in their eyes? Unfortunately we have a lazy, spoiled group ‘out there’ who are believing every word Bernie says. Just as so many believed the previous ‘smooth talker’ and never bothered to inquire as to just what IS a ‘community organizer’ ? Will some really good film maker please hurry up and get some revealing films on real socialism into the movie houses for the millenials to see? Why are they so blind? —

      1. It is truly a major problem that most college kids are extremely lazy and want something for nothing and are very, very spoiled. They want to take the “the lines of least resistance” and to “live off the government” sounds wonderful to them. They have not yet lived in the real world and will listen to who ever offers them “FREE” stuff and “an easy life with little effort, little work and boundless FREE stuff from their government. “Oh, what a great life that would be” is their motto. However, they go no further, do not actual check out socialism and what has occurred to the countries that have adopted socialism. So they are jumping onto the “socialism wagon BLIND”. These kids still do not understand that NOTHING in life is truly FREE. America was founded on people of all nations coming here, learning our language, becoming citizens and working hard for all they had. For young people today, this is very foreign and opposite of their goals. Their belief system and their desires could be very dangerous to America. If only America had more time and these college kiddies could grow up and forget the “free ride” mentality, America would be alright. Let us hope, let us PRAY that America can wait for them to finally “wake up and smell the roses”!!!!!

    2. It should be noted JFK bolstered our US Army special forces (green berets) to fight socialism as it crept north from South America. Even as a Democrat President, Kennedy saw socialism as a threat, but then he also supported our Constitution and was a life-time member of the NRA. Socialism only got popular with the election of Obama and with his Administration’s record of unemployment and extensions on unemployment benefits, the opportunity for Sanders to get his foot in the door arose.

    3. Sanders don`t know what he want, he can`t be President of this Nation, the USA. God`s will always going to be in charge, and is not to the left, not now, not never.

  3. American revolution also known by many as the greatest revolution. It created the greatest document man has ever seen. This document known as ”THE CONSTITUTION” has been the rock upon which our system of constitution republic has been established and survived for over 300 years. No other nation can come close. From the onset this country has been a capitalistic system of economy. This system has created the greatest wealth, the greatest entreuponers on this planet. Is it perfect no not really but it is the closest of any other system to be perfect. Why must we alter this system that has given us such great wealth and individuality to another system to be controlled by a central government in almost every phase of our lives!!!!!! There is no nation in the world that people who dream of freedom and opportunity to want to enter this great America!!!!! One of the greatest ( if not the greatest ) prime minister Sir Winston Churchill said it the best” SOCIALISM IS A PHILOSOPHY OF FAILURE, THE CREED OF IGNORANCE AND THE GOSPEL OF ENVY, ITS INHERENT VIRTUE IS THE EQUAL SHARING OF MISERY”

    1. I agree with Byron. Unfortunately, these extreme leftists are not educated on the problems of this system that
      Bernie praises. It is very scary he has come so far in the poles.It should be fun to see Trump debate him.

  4. Socialism works extremely well for those in charge of redistributing the wealth. But for the country itself, it is a cancer.

    Don’t let anyone get away with saying socialism is woking in Europe. Some countries have survived socialism, just like some people survive cancer. But nobody says cancer is working for people who survived it.

    Every single country that has ever adopted ANY form of socialism has suffered financially for it. Including Sweden, and the USA. No country has EVER benefited from socialism.

  5. Unfortunately, the younger generation is being lied to in the schools and colleges! Didn’t their parents tell them nothing is free in this world? The Bern will go back and forth between his 3 homes while the government will take yours because you won’t be able to pay your taxes. He’ll clean out your bank accounts & retirement to share with the rest of the country! He wants to share the wealth after all! GOD help us. He is Satan in disguise! Be afraid .. be VERY afraid 😱

    and actual effort to produce a superb article… but what
