Young liberals need to pay attention to what’s going on in the world.

They think that their experiment of “democratic socialism” is nothing more than free stuff for everybody, complete with rainbows, gumdrops, hugs, and smiles.

Their myopic view of socialism begins and ends with how they view the Scandinavian countries…

They think we’ll all be riding around on bicycles and sitting at cafés while we wait for our next article to go up on “WhyILoveMyCat.com” – but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

The Examples Are Staring Them In The Face

Maybe they haven’t seen the images from Venezuela…

The people eating out of the garbage because there’s nothing left to eat, or the loads of cash that litter the street because it has become virtually worthless due to inflation.

They can’t wrap their minds around the fact that Maduro, who took over from Chavez, was duly elected and promised to institute his own brand of “democratic socialism”…

And look where they are now.

They’re lost…

And if somebody doesn’t step in soon to fix things, it’ll be years before they get their country back.

Keeping democracy is a struggle, and that battle needs to be fought every day…

“Constant vigilance is the price of freedom,” right?

We can see that fight playing out on the other side of the world…

In the streets of Hong Kong, the people are peacefully marching in protest of the law allowing the Chinese government to extradite those who have broken Chinese law in Hong Kong to the mainland.

This essentially puts Hong Kong under communist rule – and the little democracy that they had will quickly and surely be pushed to the wayside.

So, the people began marching…

And all of a sudden, people started showing up to stop them…

Starting violence…

Beating people up…

Hitting them with sticks and chains.

This IS Socialism

It’s a scene out of an Orwellian nightmare…

However, the people were undeterred and they kept marching – many of them holding up symbols of freedom, like the American flag and Britain’s Union Jack – the flag that they operated under until 1989 when Hong Kong was given over to China.

According to that 1989 deal, Hong Kong belongs to China – but the democracy that made Hong Kong special was supposed to continue being the governing body.

Two systems, one land. That was the deal.

This new law breaks that deal and puts the people of Hong Kong under the thumb of the communist regime in Beijing.

The intimidation tactics didn’t work…

But now, things are being ramped up.

The police are now VIOLENTLY starting to push back against the protestors and there is literal blood in the streets.

The scenes are horrible…

And yet the people of Hong Kong keep marching.

Tear gas, beatings, arrests…

And the people of Hong Kong are STILL marching because they know their cause is just and they have a lot to fight for – FREEDOM.

Be Careful What You Wish For

And this is what the liberals want us to embrace?

This is how they want us to live?

Under constant fear and oppression – simply for wanting to be free?

Because this is what happens…

The violence that is taking place right now on the other side of the world is exactly what happens when you find yourself on the wrong side of the socialist agenda.

How can they be so naïve to think that those in power will stop at giving us free stuff…

They’re going to want a lot more than just higher taxes in return.

They’re going to want subservience…

And there are MILLIONS of Americans that won’t bend the knee—nor should they.

Leftists love to chant “Tell me what democracy looks like”

Well, they simply have to open their eyes and look around.

THIS is what democracy looks like…

Anything else is servitude under a different name.

And that’s not happening on OUR watch…
