Living in the land of fruits and nuts

"Yes, folks, there is a monster on the loose. It is called socialism. It is evil incarnate. With the help of organizations like Education Minnesota, socialism has blinded our youth. Black is white and up is down. Now socialism, the form of government which as killed millions throughout history, is looked upon as superior to our constitutional republic."

A few decades ago, when California seemed to have a monopoly on nuttiness, the Golden State was often referred to as the "land of fruits and nuts". It earned that title, and wore it proudly. I had often wondered how this very beautiful and productive state had allowed itself to run off the rails so completely. I did not realize back then, but I do now. Socialism. They were the first in the country to trade in our republic for more of a socialistic slant.
Just like an out of control virus, contagion has spread across our great country. Not all places - some are immune from this disease. Immune? How? By staying true to the country our Founders left us. By adhering to our wonderful founding documents. But other locations, like New York, New England, Illinois and (sadly), Minnesota have caught this dread disease.
Watching what the Minnesota House is passing this session is like watching a smorgasbord of nonsense. But it is not nonsense, as with only a couple of weak-kneed Republicans in the Minnesota Senate, all this nonsense will be signed into law. Taxing Timmy already has his pen ready. Sky high gas taxes, higher license tabs, higher metro sales tax, red flag gun laws, and on and on and on. Soon, if we allow this bunch of misfits to remain in power, we will have totally ruined our government schools and allow fourth term abortions.
What scares me to death, and should also scare every other red blooded American, is socialism. We are within a whisker right now, of losing this great republic to socialism. Just listen to the Democrat candidates running for President. They sound like they are running for office in the former Soviet Union. If this country elects a socialist like Sanders, and have a complacent House and Senate, it will be game over.
History has shown the path from socialism to worse, is a quick slide down a slippery hill to communism. Next stop after communism is getting stuck with a brutal dictator under totalitarianism. In a matter of a few short years, America can go from the world's good guy, to a bad ass with no boundary.
When I see what is happening right now to our country, I am reminded of the Steppenwolf song from yesteryear:

America, where are you now?

Don't you care about your sons and daughters?

Don't you know we need you now,

We can't fight alone against this monster...

Yes, folks, there is a monster on the loose. It is called socialism. It is evil incarnate. With the help of organizations like Education Minnesota, socialism has blinded our youth. Black is white and up is down. Now socialism, the form of government which as killed millions throughout history, is looked upon as superior to our constitutional republic.

We are in deep trouble right now. Our country, our state, is on the precipice of disaster. We need to fight this monster on the loose. To lose, is to lose everything.
