A prophetic quote from Nikita Khrushchev, former leader of the Soviet Union, dated Sept. 29 1959: "Your children's children will live under communism. You Americans are so gullible. No, you won't accept communism outright; but we'll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find you already have Communism. We won't have to fight you; we'll so weaken your economy, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands."
When you look at the state of our country today and the downward slide since his quote we see he was right. We now live in a nanny state, where the state tells us how we must act, how we must live, what type of car seats we must have for our children, what kind of mileage our cars must make, what kind of light bulbs we must use, what kind of unbiblical behaviors we must accept and the list goes on and on. We have given up so many freedoms and fallen so far in debt since this quote that it isn't even funny.
Now with the imminent implementation of Obamacare the final nail is ready to be driven into the coffin of the last bastion of freedom, once great nation that was founded on Christian principles and freedom, the good old USA.
It is time to stand with the House Republicans and do whatever is needed to defund Obamacare and start the long hard journey of throwing off the shackles of communism that have been imposed on us by the left and the get along people on the right before it is too late.
