U.S. flag and Statue of LibertyA group of Gold Star wives and mothers will use the nation's birthday to take a bold stand against socialism.

Their rallying cries in support of radical socialist ideas have put left-leaning politicians like Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vermont) and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) on the front page. But a group known as Moms for America – along with more than 40 Gold Star Wives, mothers, and their families – is saying "No" to socialism in a Rally for Freedom July 4th at the U.S. Capitol.

"This is just something we feel critical at this juncture in time to say not now, not ever – and we're nipping this thing in the bud," says Karen Vaughn, a Gold Star Mom and director of strategic initiatives for Moms for America.

Vaughn, who lives in Florida, is concerned at just how close the Sunshine State came to electing a socialist governor in November 2018.

"We even have people in our family who voted for Andrew Gillum, an outspoken socialist, and he nearly won the governor's election," she tells OneNewsNow. "So I think it's just a lull into complacency in a generation that seems to think that 'free' means that it grows on trees, not that somebody is going to pay for it."

Moms for America is asking members of Congress to sign a pledge and promise to the American people to do everything in their power to make sure – as President Donald Trump has vowed – that America never becomes a socialist country.
