“Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.” – Abraham Lincoln
I find it vaguely interesting how in the aftermath of the election of President Trump, the solution for the left to regain credibility in the eyes of the voters is to move further in the direction of socialist ideology in increasing the power of government, further increasing tax burdens, protesting a legitimate president, stifling the approval processes of President Trump’s cabinet appointments, propagating falsehoods being dispensed by the liberal media, further complicating the tax code and pushing for new government programs.

If history is any indication, the antics of fascism and communism pool themselves on the same wavelength of tyranny and countries, governments and societies subjected to each of their political systems and influences have witnessed some of the worst atrocities ever committed in the annals of human history. It is a fool’s errand to even make an academic attempt to separate one tyrannical philosophy from the other as having a better grip on the tenets of moral law. In Europe, during the period of World War II and spanning from the invasion of Poland in 1939 to the invasion of Germany by the Allied Powers in 1945, the political system governed under the doctrine of Nazi fascism was responsible for the deaths of an astounding 20 million people, including 6 million Jews who were slaughtered in the gas chambers in the Holocaustic death camps (such as Auschwitz, Dachau and Sobibor) for the crime of merely being a certain race. Stalin and his repulsive philosophy, under the flag of the hammer and sickle, was directly responsible for the deaths and murders of 20-35 million people, millions of whom were his own citizens. His reign of terror wiped out a double digit percentage of the Soviet Union’s population. In Communist China, under Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward, the Communist revolution commenced a slaughter that wiped out the lives of 45 million people within just four years during the 1950s into the 1960s. To put such an astounding number into context, the amount of deaths attributed to Mao’s Communism in China was comparable to 82% of the total recorded deaths in World War II, which is estimated to be around 55 million. For one man, driven by an ideology, to be responsible for that many deaths, speaks to the premise of the ideology by which he is driven, and it can be assured that “virtue” plays no role in the construction of policy under such views. For those who hate the concept of God in society, they must then operate under the materialistic Darwinian belief that “survival of the fittest” is the dominant and only prevailing philosophy amidst all things “life.” This reality then keeps those who identify with the tyrannical “isms” of the 20th century from ever trying to make a moral case for their politics, let alone their views on human rights and liberty.

Today, there are about 7.5 billion people in the world. Out of those people, nearly half – more than 3 billion – live in poverty, never to know the kind of life we enjoy in the States. They wake up each day, not able to go to school, not able to enjoy the comfort of a home, not able to watch a movie or go to a baseball game, and in too many cases, not even able to eat.
But, not so in America. Americans have almost unlimited access to food and water, education (whether through schooling or the internet), medical assistance, sports activities and other interests, and so much more. In fact, even the poor of our society are better off than many people in the world. Those below the poverty line in America are more likely to have a telephone, a television, an air conditioner, an automobile, eat more red meat and have larger living quarters than the middle class across Europe.
