Democrats’ socialist agenda would kill the American dream
By U.S. Senator David Perdue
Wednesday night, the country’s most liberal Democrats will descend on my home state of Georgia and flood the airwaves with their radical, socialist ideas.
The presidential candidates on stage will attempt to paint a rosy picture of a socialist worldview that has failed repeatedly around the globe.
Do not be fooled by catchy names like the “Green New Deal,” “Medicare For All,” and the “Freedom Dividend.” These are disguises for socialist policies that would fundamentally change the country as we know it.
Socialist policies have destroyed other countries. The Soviet Union crumbled. Greece’s economy collapsed. Cuba and Venezuela today are failed states, and people are suffering. Why would America want to emulate any of these failed socialist regimes?
America was built on simple principles: economic opportunity for everyone, fiscal responsibility, limited government, and individual liberty. In the post-World War II era, our free-market, free-enterprise system has generated the greatest period of economic growth in human history.
The American dream exists because of the free-market system. The socialist agenda would kill the American dream.
