We can all heave a sigh of relief! Judge Kavanaugh is now Justice Kavanaugh. In one way, the confirmation hearing changed us forever. Never again will we be the innocents in the blood sport called politics! We have seen first-hand the duplicity and scare tactics of the Left. Now, we have the opportunity and the mission to be a strong voice in Kitsap County and we dare not miss any chance to engage young women and to mentor them about the greatness of our country and the greatest experiment in government that the world has ever seen.
SSRW has been busy supporting our Republican candidates. Many of us have sent money and supported fundraisers. April Ferguson and Chris Stephens have encouraged us to “man” the phone lines, contribute and to walk precincts. It is going to be a tough election, but if hard work makes the difference, Republicans should win. Check this site for contact information.
A recent Gallup poll found that 57% of Democrats view socialism favorably as opposed to 16% of Republicans. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new face of socialism in the U.S. She is young and pretty and attracts young people. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez has taken a page out of Barack Obama’s playbook. She speaks of wanting “to spread the wealth around.” She also offers the promise of “fundamentally Changing America.”
Bernie Sanders, another socialist differs from the traditional message. He states that he is a “democratic socialist.” That means that he does not want to own the means of production or have central planning, but wants to tax, to the hilt, anyone who has worked and prospered. This is the new socialism that has become popular with the uneducated who seem to be unaware of the devastation and starvation in Venezuela caused by the radical socialist Maduro government.
Putting a pretty face on socialism won’t work. When people point to the Scandinavian countries as examples of “socialism that works,” they ignore the fact that these countries have prospered only by dumping their old socialist dogmas in favor of expanding private enterprise.
Do not be deceived!
