‘You Americans Are So Gullible’

There are two opposing forces locked in eternal combat. When one force gains the upper hand the other force is subjugated. Throughout history the pendulum has swung from one end to the other. Most recently the forces of individual freedom scored a victory with the founding of the United States and creation of the U.S. Constitution. However, over the past two hundred years the forces of domination have been slowly eroding the belief in and support for liberty.

This epic battle is documented in a speech delivered by the Secretary of Agriculture under President Eisenhower, Ezra T. Benson. He said:

“I have personally witnessed the heart-rending results of the loss of freedom. I have talked face-to-face with the godless Communist leaders. It may surprise you to learn that I was host to Mr. Khrushchev for a half-day when he visited the United States. Not that I’m proud of it. I opposed his coming then, and I still feel it was a mistake to welcome this atheistic murderer as a state visitor.

“As we talked face-to-face, he indicated that my grandchildren would live under Communism. After assuring him that I expected to do all in my power to assure that his, and all other grandchildren, will live under freedom, he arrogantly declared, in substance:

“‘You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright. But we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you; we’ll so weaken your economy until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.'”

The story continues …..

    My daddy used to talk about that statement. We’re evidently very close if not actually on target for that timetable.
