Socialism and Ronald Reagan

Embed Size (px)


Socialism is a modern Trojan Horse. It is easy to accept and espouse when in reality it is fraught with evils and ills that undermine the very foundations of Democracy and Capitalism. Socialism has many problems that affect negatively the well being of all of us and our civilization. Ronald Reagan was very astute regarding the problems associated with Socialism. He offered us some of the best quotes pertaining to Socialism and Big Government.

Socialism Appeals To: The freeloaders, slackers, drones

The underprivileged

The incapable, the illiterate

The low IQ ones, the dim-witted

The poor, the destitute, the impoverished

The deprived, the needy

The derelict, the neglected, the abandoned

The abused and mistreated, the sociopaths

Why It Appeals To Them? Because they want to have what other people have.

Jealousy is the primary reason. Why should the people with education, high IQ, privilege and luck enjoy things that they can’t?

In their (sick or limited) minds, “It is not fair!”

Think About This:

Laertis Proprietary 7

What is the difference between a barbarian or a

vandal and a modern socialist?

None! They both want what other people have. And if they cannot get it the easy way they have to destroy it!

They cannot stand to see other people prosper

The Visigoths sacked RomeThe Turks sacked ConstantinopleThe Socialists are sacking The West

Page 8: Socialism and Ronald Reagan

Most People Do Not Understand This: Life is NOT fair!

No laws or political systems can make it fair!

Laws and political systems can make life a little easier, but life will never be fair

8Laertis Proprietary

Page 9: Socialism and Ronald Reagan

Important Realizations No laws can force people go to school and become

educated (really educated)

No laws can increase IQ or smarts

No laws can make things really equitable for all

No laws can make us all really equal

Yes, we are different … and for a good reason

No laws can fix families that self-destruct

No laws can stop parents from abandoning their kids

Page 10: Socialism and Ronald Reagan

It Is A Fantasy … To believe that someone or the Government itself will

be able to intervene and make things nice … and fair … and reasonable. It is in our human nature to want such evenhanded environment and a just world, but it will never happen. Communism has proven this many times over around the world. Failed socialist governments (like the Greek ones) have proven that point as well

So, Get Over It! If you want to enjoy life the right way, then:

Get the best education that you can

Get into a profession that always is going to pay well

Plan your career. Manage your career. Make each career move count

Build wealth (slowly at first, but at an accelerated pace at the end of your career). Manage your wealth

Socialism Also Appeals To: The bleeding hearts

The do-gooders

The “sensitive people”

The idealists, the romantics

The Holy Grail chasers

The spurious and empty-headed religious devotees seeking God’s favoritism

The phony philanthropists seeking publicity

12Laertis Proprietary

Page 13: Socialism and Ronald Reagan

Why It Appeals To Them? Because Socialism sounds good. It appeals to the good

and sensitive side of people. It appeals to those that want to help others, and it appeals to those seeking redemption. It is easy to see why Socialism appeals to so many people

It feels good to play Robin Hood with other people’s money

Moreover, Socialism Is Easy To Sell You want “free” health care? You got it

You want to retire at the age of 58? You got it

You want 3-6 weeks vacation per year? You got it

You want a bigger pension? You got it

You want to work fewer hours per week? You got it

What else do you want?

Socialism sells this

Page 16: Socialism and Ronald Reagan

Remember Someone has to pay for all that --- as the Greek citizens

found out the hard way

Governments want to give you things because they want your vote. Their attitude is that “By the time these idiots will find out that there is no money for all this, I would be out of here. I would already be retired and my family taken care of. Moreover, by then the idiots would already have already named a highway or building after me!”

Top Realizations There are no free gifts. Someone has to pay for them

Socialism also weakens a country’s will to fight its enemies

17Laertis Proprietary

Pacifism is for immature brains that cannot face reality or

comprehend the facts of life

Page 18: Socialism and Ronald Reagan

Socialism Demands Big Government

18Laertis Proprietary

Based on the wrong belief that it is Government that will make things fair for

everyone.It’s another fantasy of idiotic people that don’t understand

life or government

Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it."

“The most terrifying words in the English language are:

I'm from the government and I'm here to help.”

Attributed To Ronald Reagan “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that

they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.”

Attributed To Ronald Reagan “I have wondered at times about what the Ten

Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress … “

“The taxpayer: That's someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take thecivil service examination.”

26Laertis Proprietary

Page 27: Socialism and Ronald Reagan

Attributed To Ronald Reagan “Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal

with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other”

“The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.”

27Laertis Proprietary

Page 28: Socialism and Ronald Reagan

Attributed To Ronald Reagan “It has been said that politics is the second oldest

profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first”

“Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases:

If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it”

28Laertis Proprietary

Page 29: Socialism and Ronald Reagan

Attributed To Ronald Reagan “Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed,

there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself,you can always write a book.”

“No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.”

“If we ever forget that we're one nation under GOD, then we will be a nation gone under.”
