Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – “The Pilgrims did come to America and did experiment with a communist system of communal owned and operated property. This system caused confusion, discontent, and a lack of entrepreneurship and individual initiative,” says Gail Spurlock, a Republican State Board of Education candidate for District 12 near Dallas.
“The men who were the most able were jealous because they got paid the same amount as those who did not do as much work. The most able women who did the heaviest communal chores began to feel the same type of discontent.
“This discontent led to the lack of a strong work ethic; and the failure of the communist experiment began to lead to illness, starvation, and death.
If one states the Pilgrims were radicals seeking a communist-socialist utopia, there is obviously something to debate … much less take note of before entering the Voting Booth. Especially making the link more than two centuries before Karl Marx wrote The Communist Manifesto.
