Ask yourself, do you want to live in a socialist country? If your answer is, "NO!", then you really, really, REALLY, need to getting to the voting booth EVERY year. Yes, every year. People think that elections only happen when they see presidential elections. That is not the case. There are elections and ballot issues every year. Not always in your area, but you should always be keeping up with issues and candidates in and around your area. The South Dakota 2018 primary election is right around the corner, followed by the 2018 General Election in November. Be there!
In the United States, we now have millions of socialists living here. Many are young people that have been brought up in a socialist education system or now that they are facing bills and expenses, want everything handed to them. A large portion of the socialists are people brought here on work visas and grew up in socialist countries. To them, we have too much freedom and would be very comfortable living in a socialist country again. But they do not want to return to their home country. Go figure. In general, people who have worked for nothing and have demanded everything for free are the people that lean towards socialism. Once they get a steady paycheck and uncle Sam takes his share, then they quickly change their perspective and want to keep their money. This is when the conservative transition happens to these young kids.
Democrats are the new socialist party. In fact, you can see the Minnesota democrat party and the socialist party intentionally combined. I will admit that there are a good many democrats that are not socialist, but these days, it is very difficult to sort them out. And EVERY SINGLE democrat in congress is voting for amnesty and open borders. Either they are socialists or are in league with cartel and getting more than their fair share of income while voting to give your hard earned income away.
I am loathe to even mention this preposterous site, which is in my opinion a socialist site calling the kettle black, but if I were to cite a conservative site there would be cries of foul play and fake news. I apologize for this link, but here it is, The Guardian. They skimmed some sources, including Pew Research (yeah, I know they are not exactly flush with credibility these days), pondering the rise in socialists in this country.
And here is a link to the Pew reference - it is actually a pdf file:
Start poking around the internet. Do searches for socialists and socialist groups in the US, communists and communist groups in the US, famous socialists in the US, famous communists in the US, communists and socialists in congress, socialist and communist governors/mayors, etc. You will begin to realize what is at stake.
Research how democracy's are slowly moved towards socialism. Social welfare programs get the population hooked. Universal government or state run healthcare is implemented, just a bit at a time so you do not notice. (Medicaid, Obamacare) Guns are taken or regulated away. People are kept poor or at what "they" consider a living wage (while they make their millions). In the name of political correctness your rights are quietly stripped away. It is a soft sell each year or with each new law or regulation. A small but regular nudge each day towards socialism. Before you know it, you are living in a socialist country and you do not even know how it happened. If you speak up, you are called names, publicly shamed and branded, and labelled all sorts of unfavorable things in order to make you feel like you are not a decent human being. (Mike Levsen, the mayor of Sioux Falls, and some on the city council have already implemented these techniques. You can even look at Aberdeen American News archives and see them in print.)
While you are at it, research how socialism and Islam work together towards a common goal. Islam uses the socialism activists to do their work for them. They play their part by being the convenient victims of the current policies. They keep hammering away at things like free speech, inequalities for women (while overlooking the abuse in their own system towards women), fake hate crimes in order to slander the groups that resist them, fake altruistic movements and charities to dupe people into unwittingly help them forge their socialist agenda. Neither socialists nor Islam cares about the consequences, so long as they get their way. (communists and anarchists should be included here as well)
It is not about all of the issues currently being used to distract us, it is about socialism vs our Constitution. It is about importing as many people from socialist countries as they can and as quickly as they can. It is about getting people here and getting them on welfare (yes, they get welfare and healthcare) and making certain they will vote for those benefits. Chain migration assures millions more socialist voters will come here. None care about our Constitution as none have sacrificed a thing to be here or helped build this country in any way. They are not invested in our culture or our values or morals or ethics. Many come from corrupt countries where laws are mere suggestions where cartel run the country (Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Columbia...). They demand amnesty and citizenship while waving flags from their home countries? Are you kidding me?
Right now, I can not get on board with a single democrat candidate. I have yet to see a single one speak up for the rights and safety of the citizens of this state or country. They are all presenting themselves as a security risk to this state and to this country. It is as if the real democrats have jumped ship and abandoned the party and have handed control over to socialists, communists, and foreigners. They even tell us that we have to train the foreigners to be our future leaders and that they are better people than we are and deserve this country more than we do. This is a HUGE red flag. Huge. We need to be digging deeply into their campaign funders.
I won't be giving republicans a pass either. With the socialist agenda exposed on the left, they will have no hesitation to run on any party ticket they feel they will be able to take over. All must be vetted carefully.
You may not realize it, but when you pick up a history book and read about the Civil War, the Revolutionary war, and other revolutions, you are looking back on struggles of people that could have ended very differently had people not taken strong and meaningful action. Today, you are that revolution. And that revolution is not restricted by borders. Worldwide, people just like you are fighting for their sovereignty, their cultures, and their freedoms. There are not soldiers uniforms or heavy artillery, this revolution is happening economically and at the ballot box.
I can not stress enough how important it is to support truly local businesses. Businesses that have committed to strengthening not destroying your community. Participate actively in your community. And get out and vote! You are now a part of that revolution that will be in future history books. This is your opportunity to fight for what your ancestors fought for.
South Dakota Together is a pro-Constitution, pro-South Dakota network. We offer a platform for those who others are working to silence. While we do not host speakers or events ourselves, we do share the information that others have given to us so that others may keep up with their events and issues.
