Popularis Socialismi delenda est

“Carthago delenda est”, or “Delenda est Carthago” (English: “Carthage must be destroyed”), is a Latin oratorical phrase. Originating in the Roman Republic in the 2nd century BC prior to the Third Punic War against Carthage, by the party advocating destruction of Rome’s ancient rival Carthage, which was thought to be rebuilding its capacity for further warfare. The phrase is associated with the Roman senator Cato the Elder, who is said to have used it as the conclusion to all his speeches.  WikiPedia

Socialism has again begun to attract followers here in the United States of America.  Less than three decades after the Red Hammer & Sickle flag of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was lowered for the last time, a Socialist that honeymooned their received 13.2 million votes in the (D) presidential primary.  While the citizens of the nation with the largest reserves of oil are reduced to slaughtering race horses for food by their Socialist masters.  A Socialist is the new hotness in a New York congress race.  Indeed Socialism has again begun to attract followers here even if they have to lie about how many.

This is a discouraging development as a nation political party embraces a political philosophy that is antithetical to the founding principles of our Republic.  At the same time it is an opportunity for us recommit to the principles of our founding and to discredit that hoary ideology once again.  We can do this by imitating Cato the Elder, we must patiently and politely, but persistently ask our politicians what they have the done to refute the arguments of Socialism.

It should be a given that the arguments of  Socialism should be repudiated.  “What have you done to refute the arguments of Socialism?”  It should be a given that it is the job of our political leaders to stand up for our Constitution and argue against Socialism.  “What have you done to refute the arguments of Socialism?”   At any event, on social media, in letters to the editor of the local paper;  “What have you done to refute the arguments of Socialism?”  Focus on their actions, ask them to live up to their oath.

If they want to have a debate about Socialism, let us be certain that we are ready for it.  We have all that is required to win.  My only concern is that too many of us think the evils of Socialism are too obvious to justify our concerted effort.  If we don’t show Socialism for the hateful violent failure it is, who will?  Every generation must work to protect Liberty from Tyranny. This is thew work we must do.  Now is the time we must do it.
