Random thought.

20 years ago it would have been unimaginable that shooting enthusiasts would buy so much of our ammunition from former communist countries and that the 7.62 x 39 round would gain wide acceptance here.

Eveen 10 years ago it would have been unimaginable that we would elect a communist to the white house and over half of americans would be ok with that.

So.  Why did we waste out time, effort, blood and treasure fighting the cold war?  Sure, the Eastern block is free now but history argues that they were going to be anyway.  And then we accepted communism anyway.  Well, technically it is closer to fascism.  Either way the state controlls everything.  The only difference is that in the later the state lets you own the means of prodction as long as you use it the way they tell you to.

Will we need 70 years to learn our lessons?  Or will it take longer because there is so much more to loot?

    I’d say this is exactly why we fought the cold war. It just took 20 years to realize we both lost.

    I think the realization will come much sooner. Especially as the quality of life continues to decline. Gas is creeping up quickly even though demand is flat. Wait til that rises.

    We’ll need the 70 years. When I talk to my children, (in their 20’s and 30’s), I am amazed at how comfortable they are with the state telling them everything. Sure, they complain a bit about their tax burden, but not like I would have at their age/income.

    Dammit; I’ve raised sheeple. And I can’t figure out how that happened.

    Cause you didn’t raise them. You fed, clothed, and housed them but didn’t raise them.

    During the Cold War the Reds were confronted with an opposing system that worked — it provided freedom and prosperity. The Reds tried to hide the success of capitalism from their people, but could never succeed completely. Today, there is no opposing system. What will the oppressed people of America think of as “their America” — the haven of freedom and prosperity that is out there, that they can dream of escaping to or emulating? It doesn’t exist. And, the American government can turn the screws that much more tightly because they know there is nowhere for Americans to go. The other English-speaking nations are even further down the multi-cultural socialist rathole than we are.

    Much, MUCH longer. If those of us who care don’t deal with the problem pro-actively, it will take decades.
    There is more loot.
    The wealthiest have hidden theirs (despite showing off on TV.)
    Amerikans are stoopid and getting stoopider. :-(
