USSA (United Socialist States of America or United States of Socialist America)

Changing “U.S.A.” to “U.S.S.A.” (for “United Socialist States of America” or “United States of Socialist America") is imitative of “U.S.S.R.” (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics). “USSA” is used whenever someone fears that socialism and totalitarianism is coming to the USA.

The name “United Socialist States of America” has been cited in print since at least 1945, “United States of Socialist America” has been cited in print sinceat least 1949, and “USSA” has been cited in print since at least 1961. A similar USA nickname is “United Stasi of America.”


Urban Dictionary
USSA
United Socialist States of America

Starting with FDR’s New Deal and up until the new health care bill from Obama, the United States has plunged further away from its capitalist roots.

Forgetting what made this country a superpower, this socialist trend has plunged the United States into complacency. Socialist programs like social security and medicaid allow those who have no inclination to work to live the same lives of those who earn their paycheck.
The USSA is becoming what it defeated in the Cold War.

ASSAILS NATION’S
“NITWIT” PLANNERS
Dr. Lutz Hits Job Program
at Builders’ Rally

By ADIN C. RIDER
Real Estate Editor
“Once we have given the boot to socialistic national planning and to those bureaucratic nitwits who would shackle us with it, we shall have relieved ourselves of the necessity of explaining to returning war veterans that we have changed the name of our country to the United Socialist States of America.”

This statement was made last night by Dr. Harley L. Lutz, nationally-known economist and professor of public finance at Princeton University, before members of the construction industry at a meeting sponsored by the Cleveland Builders Exchange at Hotel Hollenden.

Looking Ahead
By GEORGE S. BENSON.
President, Harding College, Searcy, Ark.
The United States of Socialist America! Do you think you’ll ever see that name printed on a dollar bill? Probably not. Regardless of the name, America can become socialistic anyhow, losing the economic system that has for so long kept this nation prosperous and productive.

18 January 1956, Mexia (TX) Daily News, “Deep in the Heart of Texas” by Sasafrass Sam, pg. 3, col. 4:
Our Democracy, however, is fast changing to Socialism as our Central government gradually absorbs more responsibilities and doles out more aid to the people.

When this evolution is completed the big aemament race between the East and West can end for they will be dominated by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the United Socialist States of America and surely these two big Socialist nations can then see eye to eye and let the “Cold War” end. Adios.

The letters U.S.S.R. stand for Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and if we do not soon change our way of thinking in this Country, some day the letters U.S.A. will be changed to U.S.S.A., which will stand for the United Socialist States of America!

"The USSA is becoming what it defeated in the Cold War.” I think we are still quite a long way from the communist dictatorship of the USSR that we defeated in the cold war.
