What You Do When You Live in a Communist Country

You dream escape, you plan escape, you live in fear. Constant fear.

Escape From a North Korean Prison

It was time. "Let's run!" he yelled.

Their plan had been for Shin to stay in the lead until they got clear of the fence, but he slipped and fell to his knees on the icy patrol trail.

Park was first to the fence. Falling to his knees, he shoved his arms, head and shoulders between the two lowest strands of wire. Seconds later, Shin saw sparks and smelled burning flesh.

Most electric fences built for security purposes repel trespassers with a painful but exceedingly brief pulse of current. Lethal electric fences, however, use a continuous current that can make a person lock on to the wire as voltage causes involuntary muscle contractions, paralysis and death.

Before Shin could get to his feet, Park had stopped moving. The weight of his body pulled down the bottom strand of wire, pinning it against the snowy ground and creating a small gap in the fence. Shin crawled over his friend's body, using it as a kind of insulating pad. As he squirmed through the fence, Shin could feel the current.

Shin was nearly through the fence when his lower legs slipped off Park's torso and came into direct contact, through the two pairs of pants he was wearing, with the bottom strand. Voltage from the wire caused severe burns from his ankles to his knees. But it would be a couple of hours before Shin noticed how badly he had been injured.

When he cleared the fence, he had no idea where to go. The only direction he could comprehend was down. He ran for about two hours, always heading downhill, until he entered a mountain valley. There were barns and scattered houses. He heard no alarms, no gunfire, no shouting. As far as he could tell, no one was chasing him.

As the adrenaline of flight began to ebb, Shin noticed that the legs of his pants were sticky. He rolled them up and saw blood oozing out of his legs. It was very cold, well below 10 degrees Fahrenheit. He had no coat.

Park had not told him where he might find China.
No one is trying to escape from the United States, at least not yet. No one is risking death by drowning or shark attack to leave these shores. No one is hiding under car seats, in trunks, or suffocating in the back of trucks trying to cross the border out of the United States. No one is giving their life savings to someone, knowing they will be raped and possibly murdered trying to get to the United States. No one is doing any of these things to get out, but there are plenty of people doing these things and more to get in. Doesn't that tell you something?

Why the hell are you trying to make the United States just like the countries that these people are DYING to escape? Why are you OK with that? Because if you are not - at least - helping to vote these communists* out of office you are helping them. No one is going to take care of you and give you everything you want for free. They can tell you that until they're blue in the face - it isn't true. I know it, they know it, and you know it in your heart. You will give up all your freedoms, you will give up all your comforts, and you will give up everything you have and you will be poor and powerless and miserable. That's it. That's what YOU get. THEY get all the money and power and THEY don't care one wit about YOU. You are not one of them and you never will be, they are using you and when they are done they will be laughing at you. The world has already been through this ruse, this is just another rerun. The history of communism is written in the blood of countless millions of it's citizens. Read it.

The same people who are voting for all this reject the God of the Bible. Don't dare post the Ten Commandments in a school or courtroom. But have you ever read those commandments? Love God, take a day off every week (the Sabbath), honor you mother and father, don't murder, don't steal, don't lie, don't covet.

Oh, the oppression! Oh, no, give us communism, please. It's much better. Derp!

*Communist, Fascist, Socialist, Progressive, now Democrat: They are all the same genus.
