The Republican Party has recently labeled their rivals as the Democrat/Socialist Party.
The simple truth is the Democrat Party IS beyond any reasonable doubt, quite socialist in its ideology, practice, and vision. Republicans are backing off on making it official. However, we the people can call them anything we want to call them, as long as it is truthful AND G rated – meaning acceptable to be spoken anywhere.
Some are calling this ‘name calling’, irrelevant to the problems we are facing, juvenile, childish, and a host of other insults.
This is typical democratic strategy. They are attempting to change people’s perception of the problem to something much less definable.
The truth is that socialism is BAD.
Socialistic theology is rampant in government.
The Democratic Party is the leader in implementing socialist policies.
For the most part, people in the United States have been taught that ‘socialist’ or ‘socialism’ are bad words defining repressive government policies. Anything related to socialism is bad. It certainly IS true that Socialism is bad. Unfortunately, while teaching that socialism is bad, no one has been taught exactly ‘what’ socialism is,
Believes the government should own all businesses, banks, and land.
Works toward implanting their beliefs in how a nation is run by micromanaging details of everything.
Will advance socialism to full blown communism (see dictionary definition at end of article)
Now, in what direction would you say the current Democrat/Socialist party is headed?
Step one of socialism is to believe in socialism. Step two is to put beliefs into practice.
Current action of the Democrat/Socialist party IS placing the ownership and control of many industries in the hands of the government. THEN they are spouting psycho-babble claiming it is an investment in the future for the people of America. In truth, it is government grab of power and industry; and, what the working class gets out of it is higher taxes and less freedom.
THIS IS SOCIALISM! DUH!
Why are Democrats so upset about people telling the truth? Actions speak louder than words. If Democrats don’t want to be labeled as socialists, then stop acting like socialists.
It appears that we are in the stage of transitioning between capitalism and communism. Communism is a one party system. Unfortunately, the Republican Party has so many RINO’s (republican in name only) that we are much farther down the road to a one party system than it appears by looking at a list of red states and blue states.
Are the Democrat/Socialists standing for ANY individual freedoms and personal accountability?
OR – are they playing on the fear or laziness of many citizens?
What kind of country is created through socialism?
Well, here is a list of countries that are currently labeled ‘socialist’. Most have no stock exchange, which means no private ownership of business and industry. Here in America, no stock exchange would certainly NOT be good for those planning to retire using the funds from their 401K retirement account. If the government owned it, citizens would soon find themselves just living on social security. Socialist government could not possibly allow some people to retire more ‘comfortably’ than others. Of course, such restrictions would not be placed on elected officials. Anyway, back to a small list of socialist countries.
Is anyone lining up to immigrate to these countries?
In socialism, the government or the collective, is always more important than individual. Socialist ideology leads to questions like these.
Is it good for society to have to care for the sick and elderly?
Is it good for society to have to care for unwanted children?
Is it good for society to allow disagreement with government policies?
Is it good for society to allow one person to have more than another person? (this one really gets me. It never occurs to the government that it is better to allow people to create wealth than to take something from one person and give it to another.)
When these questions are answered from a socialistic/communist view point, the answers are all ‘no’. The solutions are pretty simple. Euthanize the sick, elderly, and unwanted. Jail and murder the dissenters. Take from those who have, from those who work, and give to those who don’t have and don’t work.
Look at the mess we are in with health care, and Obama’s plans to solve the problems.
Charles Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist with the Washington Post, has charged that while the whole point of Medicare and Medicaid is to decrease costs, the only way Obama can do it is through rationing of health care. http://www.jbs.org/index.php/news-feed-archive/4831
I believe he is correct. It will be the sick, elderly, and unborn, who suffer the brunt of this ‘rationing’. Those who will also suffer are those who have chronic illness like IBS, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, RA, and a host of other illnesses that have a costly treatment over time, and prevent many who suffer such illness from holding down a steady job. Individually, these people are important to God Almighty, family, and friends. Unfortunately, according to socialist ideology, their value to society is outweighed by the cost to society of caring for them.
Frankly, the government should be getting out of funding health care in the first place. It is none of their business. It should not be their choice as to who has insurance or not. In providing health care for some they are taking it from others. Before Jerry got the job he has now, we went YEARS without insurance for the simple fact that it would have cost us around $10,000 a year. We were to old for any good rates inspite of good health, and too young for Medicare. That kind of money was not possible if we wanted to eat food and live in a home. The government was certainly NOT interested in helping us, yet it was/is interested in funding insurance for bazillions of non working people. They were not interested in helping us when our children were small either, so MY kids basically grew up without health insurance. By sticking their big nose into the issue, the government effectively decided that MY family absolutely could not afford health care. Now the democrat/socialist party is expanding their version of 'helping' the poor.
What the Democrat/Socialist policies actually do is ENSLAVE the people. They are aided and abetted by the greedy, lazy, and fearful.
Ultimately, socialism CLAIMS to care more about people than a capitalist society. However, let’s look at the facts. Socialism/Communism is looking at society as a whole.
Anything that is a monetary drain on society as a whole is bad, and must be eliminated.
Anything that produces money for society must be controlled by government’s socialist policies in order to fund the continuance of their socialist/communist policies.
If you are healthy and able to work, then you are probably safe if you just keep working, give government everything it demands, and keep your mouth shut. Dissenters are not welcome.
I recently read a quote by Dr. Adrian Rogers. It said,
‘Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody. And when half of the people get the idea that they don’t have to work because the other half’s going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody’s going to get what they I work for, that dear friend, is about the end of any nation.
Under the current administration, the United States has spiraled downward faster than any lover of freedom thought possible. It is not evil to call this administration what it is. It is a socialist regime rocketing forward in its attempts to destroy the foundations of America and replace them with the shifting sands of socialism.
The roots of socialism are based on the false premise that mankind needs government control in order to make society work. It is never right to do something wrong to bring about something you suppose to be good. If one man has worked for something, it is wrong to take it from him to give to someone else who has not worked for it. Rather, give the one who has nothing a chance to work and earn for himself. Much of what government takes (steals) from one individual to give to another individual never reaches the one in need. Instead it is eaten up by government spending on things that please the government instead of actually doing any good to anyone except the government. Everyone, rich or poor alike, is hurt by such policies.
I want to say one more time that socialism is just an ideology.
Socialism is not a bad word in itself.
Socialism is not a 'four' letter word.
The word 'Socialism' can be used in front of grandmothers and small children,
Socialism is just a name given to an evil ideology.
Political parties and individuals either practice socialism or they don’t.
What can be the harm in just telling the truth about the matter?
Democrats are currently implementing socialist policies at a rapid pace.
That is the truth.
That makes them the Democrat/Socialist Party.
