I find this video to be positively amazing. The scenes it shows are of the first seconds, minutes, and hours after this hated symbol of socialist oppression came tumbling down. It also shows people fleeing over the wall eager to escape the man made hell that was the eastern block behind the Iron Curtain!
As you watch this video you can see the overwhelming exuberance and joy of people getting their first taste of freedom in years, and many for the first time in their entire lives.
Over the years more than 300 people were murdered or injured by the East German Socialist Government as they sought to extricate themselves from the "socialist paradise" that they suffered horrendously in!
Flash forward 20 years to this very day. Just 2 day's ago the American Socialists in the United States House of Representatives voted to plunge this country head long into the same kind of failed system, that the East Germans craved freedom from, Communiusm!
East Germany- and indeed the entire eastern block- was a place where everyone had job security. If you didn't have a job you were thrown in jail. That was the socialist solution to unemployment. These people had cradle to grave health care,government assistance, and most telling of all cradle to grave slavery.
Now the Democratic Socialists in America are trying to pass into law a bill that says you shall, you shall, you shall, so many times that it is sickening. Under their diabolical plan if you don't want any part of their nonsense you can be fined tens of thousands of dollars, charged with a felony, and be put in prison for as long as 5 years. This -in my book- is NOT Freedom!!
Just think if they can do that they may well be able to eventually pass laws making it a crime to speak out against this plan, and any other wonderful socialist experiment, they propose! And make no mistake they have plenty of them not the least of which is the next big goal on their horizon "Cap and Trade".
It's time to stand up and shout at the top of our lungs that we the people WANT OUR FREEDOM not a Socialist Paradise!!
On this 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall, if we take this plunge into communism we may never know REAL freedom again.
