At first glance, the average observer would be hard-pressed to find a link between liberalism and socialism since the two seem to be diametrically opposed.
However, when you delve deeper into these ideologies, the link becomes apparent, and it is possible to see how both are being utilized to change the shape of our country. The roots of liberalism go back to the Age of Enlightenment, a time when conventions, religious piety and monarchies were being overthrown.
Socialism also took a big step forward during this time and adherents to this movement played a pivotal role in the revolutions that swept through Europe.
In our time, it is clear that a strong link has been formed between the two and that there is a concerted effort in place to co-opt our country.
One of the best examples of the combination of the ideologies is the push for socialized medicine in the United States. While our health care system is definitely broken, the push to socialize medical care is one giant step on the slippery slope towards installing a socialist regime in this country.
You can look at the economic situation in Canada and the United Kingdom, two governments that have socialized medicine to see that they are in no better shape than we are, and are failing fast. The goal of socialists is to remove monarchies from power, but there is something more sinister going on.
Although the United States is technically a republic, we are seeing numerous changes occurring that are very disturbing.
WHERE DOES ALL OF THIS LEAD?
Politicians in both major parties are leaning more strongly towards socialist tendencies and liberalism is becoming more accepted every day. Strong values are being replaced by a new society where only liberal thought is allowed and where convention is shunned.
The Elite have set up the United States for the ultimate coup, and because the joining of liberalism and socialism has been so gradual, most of us have failed to notice what is happening.
WHAT WILL OUR FUTURE LOOK LIKE?
Throughout the campaign for president, there were whispers that Barack Obama was a closet socialist, but now that he has been installed as president, there is no doubt where his allegiances lie. We were told that he was the harbinger of change, but little did we know that change could come at the cost of our liberty.
Liberalism and socialism are poised to become the norm in the United States and there is little that can be done to stop this travesty.
However, if we pay attention, if we stand up for our ‘God-given’ and inalienable rights and use the voices guaranteed to us by our constitution, we can stand up for our nation and the republic for which it stands.
