The Democratic Party-Socialism Disquised as Liberalism

We have reached a tenuous time in the history of our country. The 2012 election might determine whether or not we throw out the heart of America for a socialist replacement. I do not mind telling you that the notion scares me. It will mean that the grand experiment will be over and our critics of 225 years ago would be right-we the American People are not capable of governing ourselves. It will mean that our educational system will have failed because so many Americans will have been fooled…again.

How are we being fooled? Democrats are tapping into the emotion that someone-namely the rich bankers and the like-are stealing from the middle class and the poor. They say Democrats are the champion of the poor. Nothing could be further from the truth. What is the truth? The truth is that Democrats need the poor to be poor. They need them to crave entitlement money. They need them to rely on the government over relying on their own talents and abilities. Democrats not only have no faith in the poor and do not believe they are capable of taking care of themselves, by growing businesses, creating communities that take care of the truly needy.  Government has been touted by the democrats as the great equalizer. Government will make things fair. And what is fair? The rich should not be so rich-that they have too much money-that somehow the poor should have a piece of that. Well, isn’t that fair? Do you think the government can spend that money better than the private sector? Many democrats say hell yes! They feel they should “redistribute” to the poor. But do the poor ever get rich themselves off of government handouts such as unemployment, welfare, food stamps? Well…no. The poor get just enough to get them hooked and to get them to vote democrat. Actually most of the money goes for failed pet projects like Solyndra-a farce of a “green” company that ate over 500 million tax dollars. The only countries that have been somewhat successful in creating an equal income society are Cuba, North Korea and the USSR.

What happened to the old Democtratic Party? Isn’t this the party that champions civil rights and the environment? The party today is not my father’s party. (My dad was a Democrat while my mom is a Republican.) My father had ties with the US Steel union and was concerned with worker’s rights. Somewhere along the way, the current Democrats have hijacked these causes. They use the EPA as a battering ram against American businesses by implementing regulations and fines putting a stranglehold on businesses and job growth. The money is simply added the the governments coffers, and little used for environmental causes. ( And civil rights? Minorities have suffered the most job loss under this administration. He is not concerned with improving their status because then he looses these folks as democratic voters. The exception might be illegal aliens. He chooses to ignore federal law by not prosecuting and deporting illegal aliens. The reason can only be to grow his base. Rep. Maxine Waters is very angry at Obama for his comment to African Americans to “stop complaining.” His “concern” for the black community is touching. His true feeling for, or lack there of, is starting to eek out. Who else will Black Americans vote for if not for a black President? He does not have to work hard at keeping these voters in his stable. How convenient this president with socialistic leanings is black. (My hope is that Black Americans take my suggestion and search for truth, to educate themselves on the issues.)

Now I pose a question: What do the rich do with their money? They INVEST it! They grow businesses, they fund colleges, libraries, hospitals, many charities. Many ask why do so many jobs go overseas? Well…does our current government support an environment for business? No. It over-regulates, props up unions who do little but make it expensive to hire workers and bankrupt businesses and state governments. We have the highest corporate taxes in the world. The EPA has over reached with the regulations it puts out-the result is to strangle the growth of the American Energy industry. It makes little sense to grow a business in that environment. Fertile soil grows strong plants able to fend off drought and insects. This government is creating a barren foundation for American Business growth. The Government creates the bad weather then blames big business for the rain.

Obama has shown very little concern for the loss of American jobs. While he had the power of a democratic House and Senate, what did he focus on? Was it jobs? No…it was Healthcare. This bill does little for the healthcare of individuals, but actually redistributes about 6% of the American Economy to the government control. Howard Dean was caught on camera admitting this on MSNBC:

So here we are closing in on another election. If you listen to Mr.Obama in his recent speeches-they do little to inspire. There is no mention of his belief and support of the American People-all the people. Instead he blames banks, fat cats, big business (the job creators) for the woes of the poor and middle class. Last I checked-I think we all are Americans-not just the Democratic base. He fails to unite us in the common cause of bringing about the return of prosperity. Let’s agree on one thing: Government is not for creating equal income for all of its citizens. It is to create equality of opportunity. What we do with it is up to us. How we vote is up to us. Educate yourself before you vote-our prosperity and standard of living depends on it. Don’t get fooled again.

  • “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.”

    Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948
