The Constitution and Socialists

            The topic of discussion for this Constitution Monday is the threat of danger to the Constitution from socialists. Socialists and socialism are attracting more and more Americans who are blinded to the problems caused by the idea. Too many people refuse to see the situation in Venezuela that is the result of a once thriving country adopting socialism. Even the migrants from Central America turn their backs on Venezuela and head to the United States!

            Socialists have been in the United States for longer than 150 years. In 1966 former Secretary of Agriculture EzraTaft Benson shared a conversation that he had with the “godless Communist leader” Nikita Khrushchev.

As we talked face-to face, he indicated that my grandchildren would live under Communism. After assuring him that I expected to do all in my power to assure that his, and other grandchildren, would live under freedom, he arrogantly declared, in substance:

You Americans are so gullible. No you won’t accept Communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and you find you already have Communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you fall like over-ripe fruit into our hands.

            Benson was not the only person warning about Khrushchev’s threat to take over the United States. An opinion piece in the Amarillo Globe News in October 2012 quoted a similar statement attributed to the late Soviet Premier Khrushchev. 

“We will take America without firing a shot … we will bury you!

“We can’t expect the American people to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have communism.

“We do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within.”

            The writer of the above quote compared Khrushchev to a “wise man, a modern day Nostradamus.” The date of the opinion piece shows that the writer was concerned about how Americans would vote in the presidential election of 2012.

            Maybe we are nearing the day “prophesied” by Khrushchev. At least a certain writer seems to think so. Today I found an article by Charles Wills in the Canada Free Press discussing the rebuke of President Donald Trump by Chief Justice John Roberts. Roberts took offense at Trump describing a judge as being an “Obama judge.”

As for Chief Justice Roberts remark, the judiciary system may be an extraordinary group of dedicated judges, but they are not dedicated to the Constitution or the rule of law. However, I agree with Roberts’ statement, “We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.” He’s right there because what we have is a judiciary system full of socialist political hacks who have an agenda. To say the justice system isn’t full of political hacks, who don’t give a damn about the Constitution or this country, is like saying Stalin wasn’t a communist. They are certainly not an extraordinary group of dedicated judges that uphold and defend the Constitution….

… We have a group of socialist hacks doing their best to undermine the Constitution. Mr. Roberts, we are not thankful for the biased socialist judiciary, that disregards the Constitution, disregards the rule of law, disregards our safety, disregards our sovereignty as a nation and puts the interests of foreign invaders over the best interest of United States and the American people.

            I think it is safe to say that Wills feels strongly about this issue! I feel that some, maybe even many of our judges have socialist tendencies and issue judgements as though they have their heads stuck in the sand. However, I would not class all of the judges as “political hacks.” I may be a “cockeyed optimist,” but I still believe that there are good judges among the ones who make such crazy rulings. Nevertheless, I believe that too many Americans have become enthralled by false promises of socialism.
