As the McHenry County Democratic Party celebrates socialism in Woodstock across the street from where Socialist Party Presidential candidate Eugene Debs served time in the County Jail , Ersel Schuster, former McHenry County Board member, shares her opinion:
Socialism, Is A Fallacy Of The Left
How interesting is it to see our local Democrats spreading their wings and poised to assure a “dark-blue-wave” in the McHenry County 2018 General Election.
In their Labor Day coming-out-party on the Woodstock Square; they make it clear they want us to know they are “celebrating socialism.”
They call on “organized labor” supporters to help spread their message and goals.
All in all… more people who, for the most part, truly believe companies and those who built and operate them, are villains.
For several years they, the Democrats and organized labor, have been quietly working to undermine election after election in the county.
They proudly, and openly, peddle their hatred for capitalism, the very reason America is the one place in the world grateful people aspire to join.
Proud enough to take a lead in celebrating socialism is a county board candidate in Dist. 5.
Included in their program are Democrat candidates for Dist. 2 and, Dist. 6.
This is all well and good except for the rationale behind their love affair with socialism.
For a faction of the county/country population, it is inexplicable how those who fashion themselves the intellectuals among us… can be so solidly, and blindly, misguided.
Socialisms’ world-wide failures escapes them.
One explanation for this could be the indoctrination they received through our educational system.
It still defies explanation how otherwise intelligent people can close their eyes to a simple fact that socialism is a failed philosophy.
Current examples are Venezuela… and, soon to be, South Africa.
Those who have observed politics in McHenry County for decades are grateful our resident Democrats are finally brave enough to not only expose their liberalism, there are now those bold enough to expose their devotion to socialism.
It is honestly refreshing they are finally making it clear who they are, what they stand for and that they are positioning themselves to make major changes to our county government.
Now, if we could only convince those who, over the years, have had the hutzpah to put an “R” behind their names, running for elected office as Republicans, to move to the socialists’ column, we would have a politically level playing field.
No one has more clearly defined socialism than Great Britain’s Prime Minister, Margret Thatcher, as she uttered those well-reasoned, and simple words:
“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
What a statement depicting the truth of uncensored history.
