Free market and republic – worth defending

In America itself, the free market and the concept of republic are under threat as never before. Socialism will destroy both, and with them, basic liberty.

Free markets - capitalism at its best, works without government to try to steer it or pick winners and losers.

There are times when we just feel lost. You try to reason something out, first in your own mind, then with another, honestly attempting to understand what is right. Not from a political standpoint, just what is right and what is wrong, and it just seems to no avail. Is it a fact or not that this nation was founded upon the principal that all men are created equal and are free individuals to pursue their own happiness in their own way without government interference, as long as their way in pursuit of happiness does not infringe upon the rights of another in pursuit of their happiness?

The free market – the most successful economic system ever invented

Is it a fact or not that what is happiness to one may not be happiness to another? Is it a fact or not that the most successful, time proven system of people achieving their happiness is called a free market? I am thinking that Capitalism is the wrong word used to describe our way of traveling down the highway of life in the free pursuit of our personal happiness. Capitalism has the sound of, “It’s a lot of big money or nothing” to the younger generation. Rather our system is really, Free Market, Individual Free Enterprise.

Enterprise, n.: (1) an undertaking; project; a bold, difficult, dangerous, or important undertaking; (2) willingness to undertake new or risky projects; energy and initiative; (3) active participation in projects…

Free market and republic (not democracy)

Free Market, Individually Free, Constitutional Republic. There are words which warms the heart, brightens the spirit, makes a person feel good, puts tears in your eyes. Republic is one of those words. Free to think what ever we wish to think, free to speak what ever we want to say, free to worship as we will, or not worship at all, free to defend ourselves and family, free to use our personally earned money as we wish, free to vote and elect those we wish to be the caretakers of those freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution, free to be responsible and take care of ourselves, free to pursue our happiness in our way, yes fail or succeed in our way.

Socialism – the modern threat to liberty

Everything I have just described will be completely wiped out of existence if we allow Socialism to become the system of government in this nation. It will be like using an eraser on a blackboard. Republic will be no more, gone forever. Socialism is usually defined as government controlled production and distribution. But it is much, much more. It always begins with an innocently perceived government program that is touted as free. A thousand cuts later it is complete control of every aspect of your life. Those in power will remain there, unchecked.

Ever since history began to be recorded we can read of the struggle of man’s desire to be free,to live his life as he wishes, to pursue his own happiness free from government control of his life, free from others who think they know best about how he should live. That struggle can be properly spoken of as war. A warbetween men desiring to be free and men who want to force them into bondage. A war between freedom (Constitutional Republic) and slavery (Socialism), if you will.

A final plea for the free market

My plea to men and women all over this great nation is we must rededicate ourselves to the proposition that this is a country of Individual Freedom and Free Enterprise and be devoted to our Representative Constitutional Republic, and strengthen our resolve to keep it by winning this battle for the hearts and minds of men and women all across this nation against Socialism.

Stopping socialism is the most important issue before the american people today!! The sleeping giant must be awakened.

Please help me to spread this to as many people as humanly possible!!

Thank you, until next time.
