Announcing her intention to seek the presidency, U.S. Senator from California, Kamala Harris, said she favored “Medicare for all,” which would essentially mean the complete socialization of health care.

Asserting her ignorance about the Constitution and healthcare, Harris has tweeted in the past:

“Here’s what I believe: health care is a right, not a privilege. RT [re-tweet] if you agree.”

Please pay attention to what I am about to say.

Kamala Harris is a socialist. She is also a liar. This is because socialism itself is a lie.

Webster defines socialism as the “governmental ownership …of the means of production and distribution of goods…a system in which there is no private property.”

Socialist theory is antithetical to the principles on which America was founded. Under the original American view of government, private property rights are championed and protected. But in the socialist view, private property ownership is denounced and demonized.

Socialism is un-American, and socialism has always destroyed any society where it has taken root. Look at Venezuela.

While Harris, Sanders, Waters, Cortez and their ilk continue to push for Americans to embrace “new rights” like a socialist European healthcare system, they are not the originators of this concept in America.

Franklin Roosevelt, in his annual address to Congress, set the nation on this path.

Here’s what FDR said in that speech:

“So to speak, [we need] a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all…Among these are:

“The right to a useful and remunerative job…

“The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation…

“The right of every family to a decent home;

“The right to adequate medical care…

“The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;

“The right to a good education.

“All these rights spell security.”……
