“I grew up in a socialist country and I have seen what that does to people. There is no hope, no freedom, no pride in achievement. The nation became poorer and poorer, and that’s what I see happening here.”
Thomas Petterfy is an immigrant from Hungary who has built a fortune of over $5 billion in America. He sees the direction the United States is headed, and it concerns him enough that he is spending $5-$10 million dollars of his own money warning people about the consequences of socialism.
CNN ran a story on Mr. Petterfy’s ads, and the title of their story was Rich, worried and buying ad time. Clearly, they can’t comprehend a private citizen spending his own money for the good of the country. Their very headline exposes their disdain for those who work hard and achieve.
This is a man who has seen both ways of life, and the results of both political philosophies.
Perhaps Americans ought to listen to him.
