December 25th marked the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Soviet Union – the Evil Empire, as President Ronald Reagan called it.
And it was evil, indeed, no matter how cool American millennials seem to perceive socialism to be.
Millenials should learn that ‘Soviet Union’ is short for 'Union of SOCIALIST Soviet Republic', which, by the way, wasn’t a republic. Socialism was implemented in Russia after the 1917 revolution and Soviets didn’t allow any opposition.
As much as liberals and millennials in particular are suffering over Trump’s November Presidential election win and their desire to overthrow him to place Hillary in the WH, young 1917 Russians also felt the system was ‘unfair’ and started a Revolution that would ultimately KILL any hope for Russian prosperity.
Socialism sounds good on paper – but it’s EVIL. Liberal elites are EVIL and I feel sorry for the millions of millenials who buy into the socialist idea. The only reason anyone with a brain cell would consider socialism as a political option is IGNORANCE of the past.
It is estimated that the Soviet Union MASSACRED between 56 and 62 MILLION of its OWN people.
Obviously nobody on the left calls it ‘massacre’- they call it ‘unnatural deaths’. Much like they call infanticide ‘a woman’s health issue’ or ‘a woman’s choice’, leftist propagandists have a way with words to rename their evils into something more digestible.
China, for example, is officially called the ‘People’s Republic of China’ or PRC. It’s neither a Republic nor is it run by its people. It's run by the elites - like America.
The evil empire from yesterday and today has tentacles everywhere – particularly in the United Nations.
You see, the United Nations ENABLED the massacre the Soviets perpetrated by voting in favor of removing the protection of political groups in the Genocide Convention during the Soviet era. The Genocide Convention had been adopted in 1948 to punish genocide during both war and peace times, after Hitler's genocide. But years later, globalist UN bureaucrats decided that mass murder of political opponents was OK.
Why wouldn't the UN be OK with POLITICAL MASS MURDER? They're all communists!
And political opponents did Stalin and his brutal friends kill…60 million of them!
The soviets who managed to survive communist genocide had to suffer deplorable conditions in a country that prioritized militarization over feeding its people, with more than 20% living below the poverty line.
But while the Soviet Union has been dead for 25 years, the fact of the matter is it lives on… much too close to home.
Bernie Sanders, Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton and every top democrat in this country is a fervent follower of Socialist policies. Taken to the extreme, socialist policies give you the Soviet Union or China or Cuba.
Nikita Khrushchev had once told President John F. Kennedy that America would be destroyed from within – that the Soviet Union would never have to invade or bomb America to impose Socialism. Socialism would come gradually to America from within.
When you look at the millenials who are still crying over Trump’s win, and when you consider the enormous amount of support Bernie Sanders had during the Democrat primary, you can easily see Khrushchev was absolutely right. The degradation of the American society combined with the destruction of education and the re-writing of History have produced an entire generation of people who have NO IDEA how CRIMINAL Socialism truly is.
Furthermore, this generation doesn’t like to use logic to understand reality. For example, they view GDP growth as a key economic metric – but this metric is flawed. It’s flawed because it takes into consideration GOVERNMENT SPENDING. The more the government spends, the more GDP grows. China’s ‘impressive’ growth is a testimony to that – and China’s ‘ghost cities’ are too. China has spent north of $100 billion building commercial buildings, apartment buildings, airports and shopping malls that nobody can afford to use. It’s the reason they’re called ‘ghost cities’. But all that spending added up to China’s GDP.
If you’re spending more to acquire the same or fewer products, you’re not richer – you’re POORER. If you’re spending in infrastructure nobody can or is willing to use, you’re not investing – you’re WASTING money. But they don’t teach you that in school.
Now, according to liberal logic, wouldn't it be better to just distribute the $100 billion among poor Chinese people instead of building entire ghost cities? Don't they all want 'redistribution of wealth'? Here's a perfect opportunity, and what do leftists do? They build stuff nobody can use!
Never mind that socialism cannot work unless workers are really poor. That’s the reason high tech companies are so desperate to get more immigrants in America. More H1B visas mean lower wages. Lower wages mean higher profits for them. Socialism is the most elitist system in the world! It can only work if the ruling elites manage to keep you poor.
Democrats are socialists – all of them. To the extent that they have any sort of support coming from the masses, the risk of democrats 'fundamentally transform America' is real. It’s our job to teach the evils of socialism - we CANNOT have another Socialist in the WH ever again.
Socialism doesn’t align with freedom – the only political system that aligns with freedom is CAPITALISM. And Capitalism is the only economic system in full alignment with Christianity. The option is not so much between socialism and capitalism – it’s really more about socialism or Christianity.
FREE WILL which you will only find in Christianity translates into a FREE society and a FREE economy.
You don’t have that option with Socialism.
We must DEFEAT the liberal elites – the heirs of Stalin and Lenin. Socialism lives on in America 25 years after the Soviet Union died. We must teach its evils and we must preach the Gospel.
Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

When Leftists mock Christians, they usually try to appeal to ‘reason’, pointing out that Christians must be really stupid and uneducated for believing in a ‘guy’ whom they have never seen.
As a former atheist, I’m going to tell you upfront that my conversion to Christianity had absolutely nothing to do with emotions and everything to do with REASON. My conversion started with Economics, followed by Politics and ended in Faith. I REASONED all my way to Jesus Christ.
You see, God makes sense. The existence of God makes sense and you cannot explain Creation without the Creator.
Just to give you a short version of my conversion let me tell you that I was born and raised a SOCIALIST – big government of any kind. Little by little I started listening to ‘the other side’ from an economic point of view.
Because as a Finance professional, I’ve learnt to appreciate numbers – either a company is making money or it isn’t; either a certain strategy is working or it isn’t…either a POLICY is working or it isn’t. Socialist policies, I determined, weren’t working.
So I became a fiscal Conservative – small government is really the only way.
Then, I realized that big government also has tremendous negative political implications on our freedom – big government tends to be abusive as our founding fathers came to realize, with the inevitable loss of your freedoms.
Think of it this way, Obamacare forces people to buy health insurance even if they don’t want to. Whether or not you need health insurance isn’t the point – the point is you really don’t have a choice. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. So I became a full Conservative.
Freedom took me to Christianity, as it really is its basis – free will. You’re never forced to become a Christian – it’s your choice.
Free markets and political freedom is in absolute synchrony with Christianity.
Christianity is the ONLY religion that’s in synch with freedom
Try burning the Cuban flag in Cuba or the ISIS flag in Syria…you get executed.
Later on, I studied Creation and compared it to Evolution, which as you know is just a theory and not science. The name itself is indicative we cannot really call it science: ‘The THEORY of Evolution’. Even Charles Darwin, its author, didn’t think of it as science.
Evolution doesn’t make sense (you can read more about it here), because the idea of an ape turning into a human being is simply ridiculous.
Then I thought – wait a minute…where does music come from? Where does shame or love or any other emotion come from? Our ancestors the apes?
I don't think so...
At this point I was even more curious and I started reading the Bible and listening to really good pastors.
But I still needed reassurance…which I’m now sharing with you.
Let me tell you why you should believe.
The 11 Apostles should convince you just like they convinced me - Simon Peter, James the Elder, John, Philip, Nathanael, James the Younger, Andrew, Matthew, Thomas, Jude and Simon.
These apostles all had different backgrounds: you find fishermen, a businessman, a political activist, a doubter, a cynic, a numbers guy (what we would call a Finance guy these days), a philosopher and even a tax collector among the apostles. You won’t find a more diverse group than these apostles.
But how did they manage to convince me?
Because they were ALL executed for their FAITH.
My friend, nobody would willingly DIE for a LIE.
People live for a lie, but they wouldn’t willingly die for a lie.
These folks suffered the most horrendous persecution and their deaths were unbelievably CRUEL. They died by hanging, they were crucified, they were sawn in pieces and Peter was crucified upside down! Do you think anyone would face such horrible deaths for a LIE?
They didn’t die for a lie – the SAW what they saw and they were willing to die for it.
They WITNESSED everything they preached about.
You see, there are THREE things that the Apostles WITNESSED that should convince you just as they convinced me:
My friend, if, like the apostles, you’re living in a territory occupied by Romans, who will chase you down and crucify you for what you PREACH, wouldn’t you rather save your life and stop preaching if you knew what you’re saying is a LIE? Why would you want to be crucified for a lie? What lie would you be willing to die for?
They SAW, they SAW, they SAW…all of these things…
Think of it this way: Muslim Jihadists kill and die because Muhammad has TOLD them so in the Koran. The apostles died for telling other people what they SAW.
Muhammad didn’t die for your sins – Jesus did. Buddha didn’t die for your sins – Jesus did. Obama wouldn't die for your sins - Jesus did.
And we have 11 witnesses who DIED telling the truth. The Left doesn’t want you to know any of this because they want to replace GOD with GOVERNMENT just to control you.
Jesus was and is the SAVING Son of God. The Apostles were only human. You wouldn’t knowingly die for a lie. Neither did they. They died for the TRUTH.

The official story of Thanksgiving that you learnt in school says nothing about socialism. The Left, which has dominated the curricula for decades, is very careful when it comes to indoctrinating our children into socialism. So, any chapters in our history that make socialism look bad, such as the Thanksgiving story, are carefully rewritten.
The true story of Thanksgiving is that of a failed socialist experiment. At the time, they didn't call it socialism, of course. But if you pay close attention to what actually happened, you'll see how half the Pilgrims died as a result of a disastrous socialist experiment, which, for reasons I don't understand, is still being tried today.
The official version of Thanksgiving in children's textbooks simply indicates that in the autumn of 1621, the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag gathered to celebrate the colony's first successful harvest.
Generally, school teachers tell you that Indians taught the Pilgrims how to catch eel and grow corn, and the success of the Pilgrims' first harvest was the direct result of Indians teachings.
But this version is not quite accurate - it's missing the most important part...
...how the Pilgrims dropped socialism and subsequently adopted the free market system that ultimately made America the best country on earth.
Here's the real story of Thanksgiving that the Left doesn't want you to know.
The Story of Thanksgiving the Left Doesn't Want You To Know
The Church of England, under King James I, was persecuting everyone who didn't recognize the Church's absolute authority. The punishment for those who challenged its authority was imprisonment and, sometimes, death.
A group of separatists decided to emigrate, first landing in Holland to establish a community.
After 11 years, about 40 of them decided to embark on a dangerous journey to the New World.
We have to remember, these were very religious people, who left their home country so that they could worship as they pleased, without risking their lives. In their hearts, such long and dangerous journey to America was similar to the Israelites' journey to the Promised Land. Much like the Israelites, the Pilgrims never doubted that they would make it. They trusted God...
Once in the New World, the first winter was devastating - half the Pilgrims died of starvation, including the colony's governor William Bradford's wife.
According to the story that you've been taught in school, this is when the Indians came in to help the Pilgrims, which is all true.
What follows is the part that's omitted from history textbooks - the part that the left doesn't want you to know.
The first economic system implemented in the Colony was what we would now call socialism.
You see, before the Pilgrims left England, they signed a contract which seemed fair and stipulated that they were to pool, for the common benefit 'all profits and benefits that are got by trade, traffic, trucking, working, fishing, or any other means of any person or persons' for 7 years, during which time colonists were to 'have their meat, drink, apparel and all provisions out of the common stock of the said colony'
Once they reached land they implemented the system as per the contract they had signed - but in the first winter half the people died as a direct result of this system.
The problem with the system was people didn't put too much effort laboring the common land and as a result, output wasn't enough to feed all of them.
Socialism killed half the Pilgrims.
Governor Bradford realized the 'commune' system didn't work - he wrote the experiment 'was found to breed much confusion and discontent and retard much employment that would have been to the benefit and comfort. For the young men, that were most able and fit for labour and service, did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and children without any recompense'.
Bradford recognized that this form of collectivism was destructive to them - as the first harsh winter had proven. Half the people weren't carrying their weight - they didn't have to.
Socialism produced LACK
What did Bradford do?
He scrapped socialism... permanently.
He assigned a plot of land to each family to manage, thus introducing for the first time what we now know as free enterprise - capitalism.
Now, with the capitalistic principle of private property, there was incentive to work - now there was...abundance.
Capitalism produced ABUNDANCE
Abundance that the free market system enabled, and that they then shared with the Indians - to give thanks to God for their safety and discovery of the new system, and thanks to the Indians for their help.
Don't let the Left lie to you. Learn our history.
Danielle Cross and Freddie Drake will bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
