You probably don’t know this, but Indiana’s Victoria Spartz is just one of 17 Republican women just elected to the US House of Representatives. You wouldn’t know that because the mainstream media completely blacked out the fact that so many women were running for Congress as Republicans. Had they been Democrats you can bet the farm that it would have been a top news story throughout the election cycle.
On Monday, Spartz made an appearance on “Fox & Friends” where she told the hosts that she is a suburban woman, a mother of two daughters, who got involved in Republican politics because she knows all too well the evils of socialism, because she grew up under a socialist system, and “I see what happens when it runs out of money. It’s not pretty.”
“Well, I grew up in socialistic country. It actually was socialistic Republic of Ukraine. I saw what happens when it runs out of money. It’s not pretty. And now I came to America 20 years ago with a suitcase, after meeting my husband in a train in Europe, and is he a raised and born Hoosier. And now we’re building socialism, I’m kind of going full circles.
“I can tell you what is going to be next. It’s very sad for me to see that. And that made me as a mother of two daughters, it made me get involved and do something about it, because that’s not very good for our country.”
The freshman congresswoman said she hopes that most Americans do not fall for the lie of utopianism that socialism tells, something that the modern-day Democratic Party “is now promoting.”
“I think that we need to be good students of history. Our country, for the last century, we fought against socialism. And a lot of young kids died. I took my kids to the beaches of Normandy, and you can see how many young kids died fighting for freedoms. How many wars was fought and we won.
“And let’s look at any country that has socialism. Every country failed because this system is not sustainable. This system create a lot of destructions and misery. So we have to be smarter than that, you know, we’re not going to change.
“There are only two systems: You have freedom and free enterprise and you have system where government decides and political elites on top how we’re going to live and what we are going to do.
“And you know, if you think about it, we’re not equal. We all want different things. We all want equal rights to pursue happiness, but we want all different things. You know, we don’t even want to go to travel to the same countries. If the government forces us to be equal, you have so suppress. So every socialistic system, it’s about suppression, and we have to value our freedoms, because we’re the greatest republic that ever existed.”
It’s really good to listen to an elected official who gets it, who understands that the only way socialism acts as an equalizer is it makes everyone equally miserable. I think Spartz is going to be a force to reckon with in the House chamber, because we have too many elected knuckleheads who are pushing the allure of “free stuff” and there are too many ignorant people paying attention to the garbage that they spew. Spartz will be vocal about socialism and she could be the one to start a movement of rejecting the ideas put forth to turn us into a socialist nation, and for that, the country will owe her a huge debt of gratitude.
I would pay big money to be a fly on the wall when Spartz meets Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez for the first time, maybe telling AOC that she was inspired to run by the Brooklyn congresswoman, because she felt that given her own personal experience with the horrors of socialism that someone had to set the record straight.
Spartz served in the Indiana State Senate, so she’s not going to be naive once sworn in. Godspeed.
