The United Socialist States of America–GOD FORBID.

An open letter to the St. Louis Tea Party:

> My name is Leon Weinstein. I immigrated to the US from the former Soviet
> Union. I already experienced the Universal Healthcare, equality in housing
> and distribution of wealth the socialist style. I remember chronic deficit
> of every imaginable product, long lines for services, obnoxious salespeople
> (yes, you probably can’t even imagine that) and “communal apartments” where
> in a 4-bedroom flat lived four families using one bath, kitchen and shower.
>

> It all started innocently. Our grandparents were told that everyone
> deserves equal healthcare. They agreed. Then that each and every person has
> a right to work. They agreed. Then that we can’t allow Soviet citizens to go
> to bed hungry. They agreed. Then that there are some people who receive much
> more than they needed, and others who had nothing. At that point no one
> asked them if they are erady to share . The government was already not
> asking but informing and ordering. The commissars (you call them “tsars”)
> took over and the Politburo began to channel their commands through them.
> Our grandparents gave in step by step, inch by inch. When they were told
> that they shall be merciful and since they were not doing enough voluntarily
> the government will take their money and confiscate their property and will
> give it to those in need, they already didn’t have any means of resisting.

> We, the People in the USSR were put in prisons for even saying something
> against the government, even if we would whisper it into our friends’ ears
> in our own kitchens. In the USSR you never knew who among your friends
> working for the secret police. He or she was probably doing it because they
> were saving their own skin or their children, or sometimes because they
> liked to be able to hurt others.

> The Universal Healthcare in the US is one of the steps that can lead to the

> should be stopped now and by you and me. We, the productive citizens of
> America will be outnumbered by those who get freebies from the government
> when the comprehensive healthcare, comprehensive immigration reform,
> comprehensive energy reform, comprehensive job reform and other
> comprehensive moves to fundamentally change America will be accomplished. I
> do not want to be forced to stand on the street with my right hand up
> yelling “Hail to Obama!” Actually I do not want to be forced to do anything.
> America was the only country in the world where individual was more
> important than the group. America was the only country where you were able

> If I worked all my life and saved money for a surgery my mother needs, I do
> not want the government to tell me that she is not a productive citizen

> If you want the government to decide who will be treated with your money,

> What if all productive citizens of this country will go on strike on April

> What do you think about it? Is it a strike? Are you with me? Ayn Rand would
