As the daughter of Lithuanian immigrants, I feel compelled to advance conservatism against all odds. Growing up, I had the opportunity to listen to family stories and anecdotes about the Old County and the harsh conditions it wrought on my parents, grandparents, and others. It is simultaneously intriguing and depressing. From this, I am grateful to be American and free.
I like to believe that I have an advantage over my peers about what it means to value freedom, given my being first-generation American. As a result, I’m confident my testimony on conservatism and Obama’s reign can help my peers wake up.
Nevertheless, I look to Soviet immigrants like my dad and his fellow outspoken compatriots for the truth behind the mess going on now.
My father has been instrumental in cultivating us (my sister and I) into conservatives. He hated communism and wanted to live in America since childhood. Here are his thoughts about President Obama, the Democratic Party, and Marxist-Leninists:
My father is not the only former Soviet refugee speaking out against Obama and Marxist-Leninism.
Vladimir Jaffe, a member of the NYC Tea Party, confronted the Occupy Wall Street loons and discovered their affinity for communism/socialism:
Most recently, Larry Weinstein of Los Angeles, CA, ventured to “Occupy Los Angeles and discovered the same people with the same disturbing thoughts:
On the 94th anniversary of the Russian Revolution (November 7) an ex-Soviet visits Occupy LA to videotape & report to his Russian friends if Americans started their own Socialist Revolution
When in doubt about Democrats, President Obama, RINOs, and Marxist-Leninists, talk to former residents of the now-defunct USSR. Heck, talk to immigrants from Germany, Czech Republic, Cuba, Vietnam, and other nations previously or currently afflicted by communism.
