Legendary musician Charlie Daniels may play a mean fiddle but he’s also an uncompromising patriot who is outspoken about the dismal state of affairs in the USA, especially the current push for the imposition of socialism.
The 82-year-old award-winning performer whose most famous songs include “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” and “The Legend Of Wooly Swamp” among dozens of other hits bleeds red white and blue and unlike today’s “pussy generation” of whiny entitled millennials, he remembers saner times when the idea that socialism/communism never would have been legitimized let alone adopted by one of the nation’s two major political parties.
While the establishment media continues to sugar coat the horrors of socialism and snake oil salesmen like Comrade Bernie seduce the younger generation with the siren song of free stuff and the end of racism, Daniels is doing what the failed public education system hasn’t by cutting through the bullshit and telling folks what the monstrous ideology is all about.

In a missive that the superstar published this week, he sums it up that “Socialism Is Not About Compassion; It’s About Control”:
What has happened in every instance around the world when the people have either chosen or been forced to accept a socialist government?
Without going through the mechanics of the causes, I think we all know, they all turn into totalitarian, dictatorships with the hand full of elites in control, living in luxury while the masses suffer the results of a system that was doomed to fail from the day it was adopted.
The government controls everything, from the allocation of jobs and education to medical care, military conscription and distribution of food.
Nothing takes place without official permission, which causes almost total dependence on the government. Nobody gets a say in who leads the country except the ones who already lead it, and political dissension and protests are not allowed. Any dissidents can expect a midnight knock on the door.
In America’s case, if a socialist should be elected and had support in Congress, the transition would not come in one fell swoop. It would happen in increments.
