Posted on 08/07/2012 8:38:54 PM PDT by tedw
Too many young people (and other Americans) do not realize what life is like under communism. In this video Tibor Arayanosi tells his experience under communism in Hungary. Socialism is the road to communism. Watch what Communism is really like before you vote this November!

Bump for morning.
I get told all of the time by people that ‘they live like kings in Europe and china’ My first question is ‘have you been to Europe or china? the answer is always no. They have no idea what its like.
Another bump for your post, tedw. I don’t know if people or in denial or what, but it really freaks me out. Pun though it might be, accepting another 0bama term is tantamount to playing Russian roulette with America. (& I can’t *stand* Romney! Newt’s the one at my house!)
Like all progressive collectivists, they will merely argue that their predecessors just did it wrong, but they, being much smarter, will make it work this time.
Best thing my dad ever did was pack us up and leave Yugoslavia under Tito’s relaxed emigration rules.
I got to see socialized medicine up close, as I managed to get sick every time I visited relatives as a kid. Had my tonsils out in Belgrade. Told to count to a hundred as the doctor clamped a chloroform rag to my face. Got to be the only kid I know that didn’t get icecream nirvana with tonsils, as the Serbs believed cold was bad for the throat. I had to gag down bad hot cocoa between bouts of vomiting blood.
Next visit I got sick with a mystery illness. The chain-smoking female doctor wanted to do a spinal tap for meningitis, but my mother freaked out and refused. Turns out it was a case of the mumps. Got better all on my own.
Then there were all those visits to American hospitals, where they treated me after a motorcycle crash, saved my live from cardio myopathy and diagnosed my daughter’s type 1 diabetes. Those were all boring and efficient, done with the latest equipment and friendly people. No anecdotes there. Man, I’m going to miss it.
The bipartisan, political/regulator class controls the politics of our nation. Many self-described conservatives (Republican but certainly not old fashioned) are sucking gigantic amounts of federal revenues into local governments for their regulatory robberies of the few remaining private sector conservatives (real ones). They are supported by hordes of gossiping, pensioned NIMBYs in each locale.
Most of my Baby Boomer peers had best heed that advice. Communism is revenge and rule by thugs. Imagine what they’re going to do to the self-described “progressive” (socially pathological) majority, if such lazy, good-for-nothing majority continues to regulate against new, small manufacturing starts in rural areas while sucking all of the money out of this good-for-nothing debt regime.
How do you like them apples? Let the young men get to work. Stop regulating against them. Stop talking against them. Leave their families alone. Or continue to usher in communism with this lousy, stinking debt/robber regime.
In the meantime, we’ll starve the lazy, socialist beast. No sale. No vote.
Now see that’s why I appreciate Free Republic. I learn a thing or two from the real experiences of people. Thanks for your post.
I'll do some searching for something in writing from this person.
To be fair, Yugoslavia was a small country bootstrapping itself into the 20th century after WWII. A lot of my relatives credited communism with organizing and rebuilding the country. Yet, communist progress is illusory. Paranoid collectivism and the Balkan mindset were not a good combination. Here's a couple of more stories.
My mother would try and get dental and medical work done over there because she was cheap. Usually, it ended with regrets. Mother also has a blunt European tact, and she told me this story when I was a squirming teenager.
She scheduled a gynecological exam in Belgrade. She thought nothing of the fact that every other woman in the room was wearing a skirt, until the first gal in line lifted her pleats for the doctor. Thouroughly modern mama was wearing slacks, and was, by now, steeped in western ways. She was expecting a paper gown and a private room. She got to experience her exam, bottom-less, no gown, with a line of other women in a semi-private waiting area.
My last visit before the Balkan wars was one of my favorites. I toured Europe on a rented motorcycle, and took the long shot south-east to visit the old country. Near Belgrade, I stopped to take a photograph of a quaint sight: a cart pulled by yoked oxen. As I finished, I was accosted by two semi-official looking guys (they were wearing what appeared to be police hats) threatening to turn me in.
Was photographing oxen illegal? Was I stereotyping the country as bumpkin-ville? No. Apparently, the background of my bucolic vista contained a gas station, and according to these two heroes, locations of gas stations were state secrets in Yugoslavia. Thanks to my photo, the next invading blitzkrieg would know where to fuel-up their tanks.
As usual in Serbia, a crowd gathered to debate the activities. My side won with the convincing argument that I was a stupid, yet harmless tourist that would mend my ways and divulge no further state secrets. I beat a retreat on the bike as soon as possible.

He is not an author. Just an ordinary person who lived under communism
Nice T-shirt which about says it all. How stupid are Americans that they would vote in a Socialist government with Communist sympathies.
