Community Word - A Socialist Newspaper?

In this month issue, the CW have a  picture and a quote of Eugene (Gene) V. Debs, five times a Presidential Candidate of the Socialist Party. The quote the CW printed with his picture is as follows: "I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does nothing that is useful to amass a fortune of hundreds of millions of dollars, while millions of men and women who work all the days of their lives secure barely enough for a wretched existence. The class which has the power to rob upon  a larger scale has also the power to control the government and legalize their robbery."

Well, I agree with a small part of what he said, aren't people clamoring for a change when with Hillary or Biden people would get the same or worse. But certainly all the "wretched' in Peoria have a frig, a TV, electricity and most have air conditioning. ( I grew up with NONE  of the above accept we did have electricity and a fan or two). Same in school.

And most poor have a vehicle. Or a bike. They have free schooling which most poor resent. They have more freedom than almost any country in the world. They have the right to vote but most only want to push one button that says "Democrat". Last election in Peoria about 20-22% of eligible voters, voted. I'm voting for Trump to CHANGE the system and if he doesn't do a reasonable job, I hope there is a candidate I can really accept and I will vote Trump out.

See my next blog. I am so weary of half-truths and outright lies.
