Black America is unaware of the encroaching socialistic controls that are coming to America that will negatively impact our community more than any other. Every night on the national news, we hear a remark about socialism. Political candidates are now openly running on socialism platforms, a big no-no just decades ago. Socialism is disguised as something that will be beneficial to America, but it will not.
Socialism promises free everything from the government. They know they cannot deliver, but these promises sound inviting to a generation today that does not want to work hard for what they get. Many of them expect things to be given to them. So socialism sounds very good to them. Everything will be free, even if you don’t work.
- Free government food for everyone
- Free daycare for kids
- Free housing
- Free college tuition
- Free universal healthcare – takeover by government
- Guaranteed vacation
- Universal guaranteed income
- Universal guaranteed retirement money
One question? Who or how will all of this be paid for?
There is only one way to do this: overtax and take from those who work hard every day to prosper.
Socialism pushes a 70% tax rate. This is not just for the rich who have millions of dollars. Anyone who reaches a certain level of income will pay more.
Socialism takes from those who have and gives to those who do not have, even if they do not work.
Here is an example of how socialism will look:
Suppose you work a job, and your base pay is $40,000. Let’s say you worked many hours of overtime during the year and made about $35,000 more, for a total of $75,000 a year.
Your coworkers made the same $40,000 base pay as you, but they chose not to do any extra overtime work. You were the only one who put in overtime.
Your coworkers approach your boss and say, “Boss, we think you need to make her give us some of her extra overtime money and split it between all of us. We did not work like she did, but we should all have the same thing.”
Is this fair to you? No. This is stealing. This is how socialism will look in America. The government will take your hard earned money and give it to someone else who is not willing to work like you.
Remember, the Bible states that if we do not work, then we should not eat.
This is my Socialism and Black America thought for today. I’m Apostle Alton R. Williams.
