GOP congresswoman-elect Victoria Spartz: I’ve seen what happens when socialism runs out of money
Congresswoman-elect Victoria Spartz, one of 17 Republican women elected to the U.S. House in 2020, has personal experience with socialism that the Democrats would like to usher in under figurehead Joe Biden, and she warned that it never ends well.
“I grew up in a socialistic country. It actually was the socialistic republic of Ukraine…I saw what happens when it runs out of money, and it’s not pretty. Now I came to America 20 years ago with a suitcase after meeting my husband on a train in Europe, and he is a raised and born Hoosier. And now we are building socialism. And now I’m kind of going full circle…Very sad for me to see that and that made me as a mother of two daughters it made me get involved and do something about it because that’s not very good for our country,” Spartz (R-Ind.) told Ainsley Earhardt on Fox & Friends.
In a response to a question from Earhardt, Spartz — who will represent a district in the Indianapolis area that the Democrats attempted but failed to flip — seemed to imply that so-called moderate Democrats and Never Trump Republicans are naive about the Biden administration’s intentions, plus they are lackluster students of history.
“Let’s look at any country that has socialism. Every country failed because this system is not sustainable. This system creates a lot of destruction and misery… There are only two systems. You have freedom in free enterprise, and you have a system where government decides and political elites on top how [decide] we are going to live, and what we are going to do, and you know, if you think about it, we are not equal…We want to have equal rights to pursue happiness, but we want all different things…So every socialistic system is about suppression, and we have to value our freedoms because we have the greatest republic that ever existed.”

In explaining why she (and by extension, so many other female GOP candidates) prevailed in the election, Victoria Spartz described her district as a snapshot of America that rejects socialism.
“I have urban, suburban voters, and rural voters. And we have a lot of women. I’m the mother of two daughters; I’m a suburban woman. If you look at that, I’m very hopeful to see that majority people in our country don’t believe in socialistic utopic ideas the Democrat Party is now promoting. So women believe in the future of their children. They care about a good economy, jobs, education, public safety, having good healthcare. And they trust that Republicans can deliver it. So, I’m very honored to see that, but that is, you know, that is a testament to that.”
Recalling how she took her family for a visit to the historic Normandy beaches in France, the congresswoman-elect pointed out that many young soldiers died there while fighting for freedom and against socialism.
Radical Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib have refused to admit that their far-left policies caused Democrats to lose ground in the U.S. House when they expected to pick up additional seats to pad their majority. The GOP was winning elections in these House races, and on the state legislative level, even as the corporate media and the political establishment generally insist that President Donald Trump anomalously fell short in his quest for a second term.
