Alan Grayson Spills the Beans on Stealth Socialism
Rep Alan Grayson (D-FL) understands what is happening to America and how it is happening. What he does not understand is that those who have been inflicting our fundamental transformation are not supposed to say openly what we are being fundamentally transformed into. But since no one except liberals reads Salon anyway, Grayson will probably never be punished at the polls for admissions like this:
“We’ve had a government takeover of the bond market. Stealth socialism’s been created. Government simply ends up owning more and more and more. If government had taken over the steel industry, maybe it would have been more noticeable. They’ve taken over the financing of housing industry as well, with a desired result.”
Desired, that is, by people who are working toward an economic system based entirely on coercion rather than voluntary cooperation — or to use the familiar terms, socialists as opposed to capitalists.
One of the Founding Fathers of modern socialism described the strategy that is working so well for Grayson, Obama, and the rest of the oligarchical collectivists who run the government and media:
“The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way, the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.”
Barring a radical upheaval that changes history’s course, this generation will witness that point — assuming we haven’t already passed it.
