Communism, Socialism, Marxism… Open Your Eyes!

I guess I will never know why any ‘ism’ sounds appealing to liberals. 

I’m sure that even after seeing pictures and hearing first hand of the misery,  fear and hunger that people go through on a daily socialism or any ‘ism’ is just peachy.

I grew up in a community that was predominantly Cuban and learning their stories made me more aware of how government can ruin a beautiful country. Not until I was older did I truly understand how hurt all my Cuban friends must have been leaving their families behind to come to a better country and give their children opportunities that they no longer had.

After seeing the pictures of North Korea it really upset me but also infuriated me that people still believe that communism works. Why would anyone think that is beyond my comprehension.

Supongo que nunca sabremos por qué cualquier “ismo” suena atractivo a los liberales.

Estoy seguro de que incluso después de ver las imágenes y escuchar de primera mano de la miseria, el miedo y el hambre que la gente pasa por el socialismo en un día o cualquier otro “ismo” es color de rosa.

Yo crecí en una comunidad que era predominantemente cubano y aprendi sus historias y me hizo más consciente de cómo el gobierno puede arruinar un país hermoso. No hasta que fui mayor llegué a comprender verdaderamente cómo dolor que mis amigos cubanos debieron pasado despues de dejar sus sus familias atrás para venir a un país mejor y dar a sus hijos las oportunidades que ya no tenían.

Después de ver las fotos de Corea del Norte lo que realmente me molesta, pero también me enfurecía es que la gente todavía cree que el comunismo funciona. ¿Por qué alguien piensa eso está más allá de mi comprensión.

    Communism, Socialism, attempting to do things in the Collective has always failed unless it is done voluntarily, usually on a small scale like a farming Coop. My Grandmother, born in 1888 bless her heart, used to rail against Woodrow Wilson & FDR when I was a child, at the time I didn’t really understand what she was talking about I was 8 or 10, she would always say ” this socialist stuff will never work and will ruin our Country cause it just goes against Human Nature”, simple but profound.
    Kind of goes back to doing the same thing over & over again and expecting a different result because we just haven’t gotten it right yet. We’re much smarter Commies than those before us.
