25 Years Ago, Ceusescu Was Rightfully Killed (Yes!)

Today, I joyfully celebrate the killing of the Ceausescu regime in Romania. I am overjoyed that Communism is dead and a super crazy symbol of Communism is gone forever.

Some people today think that the 2 Ceausescus should not have been killed the way they were, but the way I see it I would have killed that pair of dictators with my own 2 hands, without a trial, and on any day of the year prior to Dec 25, 1989.

Those 'mofos' brought misery and total destruction to the entire people of a very proud nation. Did they ever deserve a fair trail? I do not think so. They got a better trial than many of the people they sentenced to death over the years, no doubt about that.

This is a great lesson for all wannabees dictators everywhere. Become a dictator, please, and do not be surprised to see what comes your way. Badaboom biatches!

I read in total dismay how some people regret Ceausescu's regime and I cannot fathom for even one second how this could be. His regime disallowed property rights, freedom of expression, freedom of movement, individualism, and terrorized all those who disagreed with the communist ideology.

People were extraordinarily poor under his regime and had to stay in line for hours to be able to purchase basic grocery items, such as bread and milk. How could anybody not remember that? How could they just dismiss how they felt under communism?

Maya Angelou once said "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel".

I will never forget and forgive Ceausescu for the way his regime made me feel.

Russia is a Weak Emotional Nation

Russia has become an incurable and dangerous bully. My fear is that they will be in Crimea for a very long period of time, if not forever, and nobody will be able to do anything about it. No nation will stand up to Russia until they attack a NATO country.

Unlike traditional bullies Russia has incredible fire power and very few allies. They have a strong army and are able to impose their will on a large number of nations. Russia needs to be stopped from attacking Poland and Romania and any other nation in Europe.

The values of soft power are unknown to Russia and, even if no other reasons existed, Russia cannot be considered a role model or a global power. A role model and a true power needs to connect emotionally with others. Russia uses only fear to connect with other nations and they have no concept of hope, optimism, future, or well being. We cannot be well when the government tells us what being well means.

Russia has no financial sophistication and lacks historical backbone to be a virtuous nation. Russians often say that millions of them have been killed in the 2nd WW but they never mention that Stalin was the main reason behind this reality. The realization that Stalin actually wanted to see so many Russians killed during the war eludes them. They actually think they deserve more credit for defeating Hitler than the rest of world has given them. However, Russia, like the rest of the world, would have not defeated Hitler without the economic might of the United States.

Economic power founded on freedom and free choice are what makes a lasting great nation. Russia is not a lasting great nation.
