"Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives." - Ronald Reagan

The Socialist and Communist movements that developed in America over the last 20 years has become a threat to the very survival of the US Constitutional Republic, because 57% of registered Democrats and 52% of "white privilege" college students now have a positive view of Socialism.  

For 6 months, the American people have been witnessing a raging Socialist and Communist movement that is perpetrating violent riots in many Democrat Sanctuary cities.  The riots have been supported by agents from the Chinese Communist “Confucius Institutes” located at 81 university campuses, the Communist Party USA, Socialists, Marxists, The Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorists, and the Socialist Democrat Party.  Those riots have resulted in a massive increase in violent crimes in 171 sanctuary cities.  To prevent violent crimes, police forces must be properly funded, not defunded.

The Socialist Democrat Party’s Marxist ANTIFA Domestic Terrorist foot soldiers are “permitted” to lead thousands of closely packed rioting mobs in the Democrat Sanctuary cities of Portland, Seattle, NYC, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Albuquerque, St. Louis, Baltimore, D.C., Chicago, Kansas City, Atlanta, LA, Brooklyn, Detroit, etc.  Yet church services, school openings, athletic events, elective surgeries, and opening small businesses are being prevented from opening.

“Freedom of Speech" is being stifled by “politically correct speech” which has become prevalent in public school classrooms, college classrooms, Hollywood productions, TV Network Talk Shows, and in transmissions by the left of center liberal Main Stream Media establishment.  Americans should not play into the politically correct mania, and should not be reticent to share their political views---we do have Freedom of Speech in America.

Every four years, during a presidential election year, Democrats and the Main Stream Media allege that America is an “institutionally racist” society aimed at subjugating blacks; this can easily be refuted by historic facts.  The US is the only country in history that fought a Civil War to eliminate slavery and has passed and enforced many laws to prevent racism.  Marxist and Socialists have tried to eliminate many historic facts in the false and misleading US History textbooks published by Nazi-Collaborator George Soros now used with the Common Core Curriculum.  In an era, 400 years ago, when slavery was practiced worldwide, the fact that a few of the Founding Fathers had slaves, does not invalidate the US Constitution.   

The toppling and defacing US Historic Statues by Radical Marxist mobs led by ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter Domestic Terrorists is no different from what ISIS and Al Q’ida Radical Islamic Terrorists have been doing to ancient Christian monasteries and churches, and Buddhist artifacts in Mali, Syria, and Iraq. Toppling and defacing US Historic Statues is a further attempt by Marxist and Socialists to try to eliminate US History.  The outstanding history of the United States is not a blank page on which Nazi-Collaborator George Soros, Marxists, and Socialists can write their own corrupt and misleading version.  

To compare the vision Ronald Reagan had for America 60 years ago to the vision the Socialist Democrat Party has for America today, we have a link to speech given by Ronald Reagan in 1964 when he was supporting Senator Barry M. Goldwater’s Presidential Campaign:  

President Reagan’s words are still relevant today and should be shared with every American, especially the younger generation of students who have been indoctrinated to support Socialism.  These younger generations of students should be taught how President Reagan led Patriotic Americans to eliminate the threat of Socialism and Communism.

In 1976, I was fortunate to be on the Advance Staff for the Presidential Campaign of then Gov Ronald Reagan, and traveled to the Republican National Convention in Kansas City, where Gov Ronald Reagan nearly wrested the Republican Presidential nomination for President from President Gerald Ford.

Then in 1979, I subsequently supported Gov Ronald Reagan’s Presidential Campaign once again.  In 1980, Ronald W. Reagan was inaugurated as the 40th President of the United States.  In 1984, President Reagan was re-elected in a landslide, carrying 49 of 50 states and winning the Electoral College by a vote of 525 to 13.  After President Reagan left office, I was asked by his office in Century City to support his appearance at various conventions.

Thirty-two years after President Reagan left office, radical Socialist and Communist mobs have reared their ugly heads and have taken control of the once Patriotic Democrat Party.  Now Marxist Tom Perez’s Socialist Democrat Party, Nazi-Collaborator George Soros, ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, Socialists, the Communist Party USA, Nancy Pelosi, CAIR, and The Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorists, have joined together to defeat President Donald Trump in the November election; their plan is to change the US Constitutional Republic into a Socialist State.

Unfortunately, over the last 6 months, elected Republican, Independents, and Democrats have not spoken out to oppose the violent attacks on 1100 Police Officers, the killings, the arson, the destruction of the economic base in many cities, and the anarchy in the streets of 400 US cities.  President Trump has been one of the few elected Republican officials who has spoken out, calling for Law and Order and opposing the rioting in the streets by Socialist and Communist mobs, the  toppling of US Historic Monuments/Statues, attacks on Police Officers, burning police cruisers and the looting of small businesses.

In order to preserve the visions the Founding Fathers, and what President Ronald W. Reagan envisioned for the future of America, and to save the US Constitutional Republic from becoming a Socialist State, every Patriotic American must speak out NOW and oppose the nightly Socialist and Communist riots in the streets which have persisted for 6 months in Democrat controlled sanctuary cities.

American voters should hold the elected members of Congress’ feet to the fire.  Tell them that they should stop cowering in their offices and speak up to oppose the Socialist and Communist revolution planned by Communist China to bring down our 244-year-old Republic.  The coming election is no longer an election of Republicans versus Democrats; it is an election of Republicans, Independents, and Blue Dog Democrats versus Socialists and Communists.
