THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
Marxism/Socialism Hasn't Worked Well Anywhere in the World, So Why Does the Democrat Party Support it?
The blitz in on around the country to “Fundamentally Change” the United States (former President Obama's words) to embrace the tenets of Socialism in place of our mostly Capitalist system, whereby over 40% of Millenials have shown an interest in embracing socialism in some form or another.
This is a prime example of the failure of our educational system that has failed to instill the benefits of our capitalist system, as handed down by our Founding Fathers. It is quite obvious that a goodly portion of our teachers, professors, and teacher unions (along with a sympathetic liberal progressive media) are advocates for championing Marxism/Socialism in our schools, colleges, and universities. The Democrats are the prime beneficiaries of the monetary largess of donations flowing into their coffers by the above named groups. Over 90% of political donations go to the Democrat Party in one form or another.
To prove the point that the Democrat Party supports many of the tenets of Marxism/Socialism, it has been reported that approximately 70 members of Congress are members in the left-wing group called the Democrat Socialists of America (DSA). Some prominent members of this group are Senator Bernie Sanders, and the Congress people commonly referred to as “The Squad”, and a majority of the Congressional Black Caucus.
Over the years, many prominent political observers have opined on the topic of Marxism/Socialism. Here are some of what was said by some of those prominent observers. Popular author and political critic, Ayn Rand, said the following: “There is no difference between Communism and Socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end. Communism proposes to enslave men by force, Socialism by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide”. Another noteworthy critic of Socialism was the late British statesman, Winston Churchill, who said, “Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy”. Also recently, noted author and talk show host and historian, Mark Levin, has written two books on the subject entitled, “American Marxism” and “The Democrat Party Hates America”, pointing out the dangers of the views of one of our major political parties.
One of the sad signs of the Marxist/Socialist orientation of the Democrat Party is that their policies have damaged those who produce, subsidized those who refuse to produce, and canonized those who complain. The Democrat Socialists loudly proclaim to want to share the wealth by taking from the “makers” and giving to the “takers” - which is right out of the playbook of Karl Marx (the father of Socialism and Communism).
The Biden Administration has embraced some of what socialism has to offer. They have fostered the theory of “Climate Change”, with their policy of getting rid of the lifeblood of the word's energy source, fossil fuels, by using the unreliable source of “green energy” in its place; using executive orders to ban gas stoves, incandescent light bulbs, pushing and subsidizing the sale of electric cars; attempting to pay off student loans against judicial decree; taxing excessively wealthy taxpayers over and above what is rational; while they are promoting the social justice program of DSI (Diversity Equity, and Inclusion). To the vast majority of the Democrats, “Equality” is a curse word, as it, to them, equality promotes competence over the the consideration of race, sexual orientation, and gender in its place.
So in conclusion, if Socialism is so beneficial for the masses, how come there isn't a run by disenchanted people to go to the socialist paradises of Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, and other Marxist/Socialist countries around the world? Could it be that's why so many people are making the decision to enter illegally the mostly capitalist country of the United States? Unfortunately for the United States, the Biden Administration and the Democrats have not enforced our immigration laws to stem the invasion of illegals and deadly drugs into our country. We must get our priorities straightened out in the next election or we'll be prone to becoming one of those other countries that the illegals are fleeing from, and that we'll fall victim to the destructive policies of Marxism/Socialism. God help us !
