There was a day when a Democrat openly stated and was applauded when he stated, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” This statement is roundly rebuked by those who would refer to themselves as Democrats today. Not only is this statement roundly rebuked but another similar statement such as, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for yourself,” is also roundly denounced.
The mantra of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party goes to the very heart of the evil that is collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) and that is to not just ask what my country can give me but I demand my country fulfill all my needs and wants. The strength of America is that our government was to be a limited government with two primary functions: to protect the natural rights given to each individual by our Creator and to protect the citizens from both foreign and domestic enemies. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party today says that the role of government must be the dominating, dictatorial force with power over the individual’s life and thoughts. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party claims it is the role of government to dictate who lives and who does not, what liberty each has and how much of that liberty they have, and what the desires and ambitions of the individual should be and the limits government should place on those desires and limits.
The direction the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party would have us take would be to fully embrace “The Road to Tyranny.” If you have not read my book, I strongly urge you to get it and read it. The strategies and policies being proposed today by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are the exact strategies needed to reach their desired goal of fundamentally transforming the United States into a Marxist tyrannical nation.
Shortly I will be releasing “Two Visions of America.” We are hearing one of the visions being enunciated by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats), Learn what the visions are, how the vision upon which our country was founded and flourished came about and what it is. Learn what the inevitable results of both visions are. Yes, we already know the results.
If we who love freedom and independence wish to live in a county that advances life, liberty, and property or the pursuit of happiness, then we must totally understand the strategies and beliefs of those who despise what we cherish. Our founders made their choice because they understood the strategies and beliefs of those who despised what they cherished. Let us not lose what we cherish because we will not take the time and make the effort to equip ourselves to be as Sam Adams said, “a tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
