Right on cue, the Republican Party presidential election front runner, a capitalist, is under assault by socialist Democrats, as well as the Washington Establishment who have enabled socialist Democrats to destroy our nation.
The key decision in this election is whether America will continue down the path of socialism and become a failed nation, or get back on track to embracing the free enterprise principles that made America great.
From across the political spectrum, with their votes for Donald Trump, Americans are signaling that they reject socialism and embrace capitalism.
Capitalism sounds harsh in the abstract, but works in the real world, providing ordinary people with opportunities to improve their standard of living.
Socialism sounds good in the abstract, but has failed wherever it has been tried. This is why people across the globe flee their failed socialist nations and come to America.
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” ~ Winston Churchill
As the old saying goes, one picture is worth a thousand words.
Below is a series of startling photographs. They depict the difference between what happened over a period of 65 years to Hiroshima, a city that embraced capitalism and Detroit, a city that was run by Democrats and embraced socialism.
A historical note to put these pictures into context: President Harry S. Truman, a Democrat, after being warned by some of his advisers that any attempt to invade Japan would result in horrific American casualties, ordered the military to drop Atomic Bombs on two Japanese cities—Hiroshima and Nagasaki—to kill people, including the families of Japanese combatants, and bring the war to a speedy end.
