Americans are, in fact, embracing socialism

To the Editor:

William Hamilton’s column of Oct. 22 is correctly addressed to conservatives. What Republicans (no longer to be confused with conservatives) are missing is that U.S. citizens are eagerly and willingly voting for socialism.

History shows that bad economic conditions, public apathy and loss of the will to stand up for anything leads to socialism or communism. All of these conditions most certainly exist in the United States.

Americans are convinced that if we become a socialist state, all of Europe will love us again because we will be like them. Isn’t that the most important thing, to have everyone love us, even if they won’t stand by us on any important world issue?

Historically the people of fallen nations did not have to be dragged to these dismal ideologies. The people willingly chose these options because they were too lazy and complacent to work for something better. If the Republican party would get the picture and move more staunchly toward socialism they would have a better chance of winning on Nov. 4.

Radical Muslims around the world must be overjoyed to see the “Great Satan” weaken itself to the point where the United States will no longer be able to stand in their way. The radical America haters must share their joy.

They will soon have, as Louis Farrakhan said “the hope of the entire world” in the White House, compliments of the American voters.
