LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Democrats want socialism again

During the Great Depression, people were demanding change, so the rise of socialism took root. It was called technocracy, which was a theory or movement advocating management and control of the economy, government and social system by technological experts.

Technocracy became very popular but, fortunately, sanity prevailed and it was defeated.

Today we face a similar threat. I am sorry to say it is from the Democratic Party.

Be careful what you wish for. I believe it was Thomas Jefferson who said something to the this effect: A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take it away.

Vote wisely, my friends.
