Tonight’s Democrat Presidential Candidate Debate, live from Flint, Michigan at 8:00 p.m. EST, will feature all of the journalistic integrity of a Vladimir Putin Press Conference.
Both Hillary Clinton (The Queen of Mean) and Bernie Sanders (Doc Emmett Brown from “Back to the Future”) will continue to espouse the benefits of a Nanny-State Government, whose political philosophy is based upon Marxist Theory, through the answering of softball questions from their willing accomplices at CNN, the News Outlet that we used to refer to as the “Clinton News Network”.
Why are Far Left Democrats (which nowadays describes the overwhelming majority of the Party) so enamored of Socialist Politicians?
Merriam-webster.com defines socialism as:
…any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
…a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
…a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done
The desensitization and placating of the Middle Class, as it was in classic Marxist Theory, is a key element of the Present and Future Platform of the Democrat Party, as it has been during the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.
By taking the ambition of the Middle Class away, by offering a “safe and comfortable” cradle-to-grave Nanny-State, “Uncle Sugar” Federal Government, the Democrat Party, ever since the launch of LBJ’s “Great Society”, have bought the loyalty of American voters by giving them bribes of “free” money and “benefits”.
Unfortunately, as Mitt Romney alluded to during his failed bid for the Presidency, there is a great percentage of American voters who will buy and be content with this “Mother’s milk”, instead of yearning for the thrill and the challenge of the hunt for American Individual Success and Freedom.
The Marxist Ideal of
From each according to his ability, to each according to his need
has become the mantra of the Modern Democratic Party, which has become extremely adept at promising the Moon and handing out free stuff to its voting base, in order to maintain their Seats of Power and to continue to grow the Politboro, or Central Government.
Norman Matoon Thomas (1884-1968) was a six-time Presidential Candidate, representing the Socialist Party of America. In a campaign interview in 1948, he said the following:
The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.
Thanks to a highly politicized, propaganda-filled Department of Education, which has “dumbed down” a generation of voters, the “easy money” solution to poverty, promised by Socialists such as Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, “tickles the ears” of low information voters, the same voting bloc who continue to support Barack Hussein Obama and his failed Presidency.
Back in 2011, I got into a discussion on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website with some cheeto-munching, Mom’s basement-dwelling Lib with no home training, who proceeded to tell me that he would be proud to defecate on the American Flag.
If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled that useless, ungrateful, spoiled brat, I would have.
That “dude” was yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, who seem to be garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful…and, yes, intolerant, behavior.
Just as we have been bearing witness for during the last few years of Obama’s Presidency, through the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments by the Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit, so are we witnessing, through the egocentric behavior of this present generation, what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.
This explains the “Feel the Bern” Movement. (Which is a creepy-sounding slogan. But, perhaps, it’s just me...)
We are already suffering under one Far Left Socialist Whackjob, we sure as heck don’t need to follow up this present Presidential Nightmare with another.
Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so would it fail here.
French sociologist and political theorist Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) traveled to the America in 1831 to study our prisons and returned to France with a wealth of broader observations that he compiled together in “Democracy in America” (1835), one of the most influential books of the 19th century. With its spot-on observations on equality and individualism, Tocqueville’s work remains a valuable explanation of America to Europeans and of Americans to ourselves.
He once observed that
Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.
In other words, the failed political ideology of socialism takes away the exhilaration and fulfillment of individual achievement and replaces it with self-sacrifice in servitude to the State, for the good of the Central Nanny-State Government, which, in turn, promises to “share the wealth”, but, as was the case in the old Soviet Union, and more recently, Venezuela, never does.
The great Sir Winston Churchill once said that
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.
I would rather be blessed than miserable.
How about you?
Mitt Romney said during his failed 2012 Presidential Campaign, that
…the American people are the greatest people in the world. What makes America the greatest nation in the world is the heart of the American people: hardworking, innovative, risk-taking, God- loving, family-oriented American people.
And. that is the main reason that Bernie Sanders, when it is all said and done, will do not any better in the Democrat Primaries than Ron Paul fared in the Republican Primaries.
Well…that and the whole “Superdelegate” thingy…
For, while there remains an element in American Society who wants their “money for nothing and their chicks for free”, there is a bigger element of our population who realize that hard work and self-sacrifice are noble things.
As the Merriam-Webster Dictionary says, socialism is “a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.”
That being said, you know why I am optimistic that the push toward socialism and ultimately, communism , will not succeed here in America?
The greatest President of the United States in my lifetime, Ronald Reagan, once quipped,
How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.
The Political Ideology of the majority of the population in America is still Conservatism.
…And, we understand Marx and Lenin.
