Socialism

Socialism is more than a failed economic system. It promises “free” material goods but instead delivers control over every aspect of life. Conservatives often struggle to portray the true cost of socialism in terms of freedom and wasted opportunity. For a generation that doesn’t remember the Cold War or the tearful celebration when the Berlin Wall collapsed, socialism’s tremendous personal toll on millions of lives is no longer obvious. The real cost of the socialist system is the disappearance of individual liberty—the space in a free society for people to love, worship, build careers, create art and families. That cost cannot be measured on a balance sheet. Socialism destroys the economy, yes, but also humanity and freedom.

2nd Amendment

In many countries, only the government gets to arm itself. But a law-abiding armed citizenry is the real stumbling block to tyranny, which is why nearly every dictator has forbidden gun ownership. Once lost, the right to bear arms is hard to get back.

Virginia has given the country a preview of what to expect when the left takes control, but gun owners and Second Amendment supporters in the state are peacefully mobilizing to fight back and protect their precious freedoms, providing a model for other states to follow.
