Rep. Todd Akin: The Pilgrims Came To America To Flee Unbiblical Socialism In The 1620%u2032s
- AKIN: It might be helpful to think back and say, thereâ€™s more to Thanksgiving than the Pilgrims. They were a group of people who were willing to change the system, to think of different ideas. They came here and separated civil and church governments. They came here and created the model of a written constitution, the idea that the government should be the servant of the people. [â€¦] They came here with the idea that after trying socialism that it wasnâ€™t going to work. They realized that it was unbiblical, that it was a form of theft, so they pitched socialism out. They learned that in the early 1620â€™s.
Socialism? in 1620??? WTF is this ass going on about?
