DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM IS A POLITICALLY CORRECT TERM IMPLYING FREEDOM AND SOCIALISM CAN CO-EXIST – THEY CANNOTRead Now
“It’s hard to know, but I mean if you’re in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialists or self-described socialists, and I’m asked, ‘Are you a capitalist?’ and I say, ‘Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability.’ You know, that probably gets lost in the ‘Oh my gosh, she’s a capitalist,” stated Hillary Clinton as she gave another FABRICATED reason why she lost the election.
This is an extremely interesting and revealing statement. First of all, Hillary has never advocated capitalistic ideals. She has always favored socialist programs such as big government, nationalized health care, a steeply progressive income tax, centralized control of the economy, industry and business regulated by the government, censorship, and curtailment of the natural rights of the citizen such as freedom of speech, right to life, and right to pursue happiness and not guaranteed happiness. Hillary is like many socialists including Engels, Soros, and Obama; “I deserve to live in luxury because I am advocating for the underprivileged.” Hillary is not a capitalist.
For Hillary to admit that 41% of Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are socialists is staggering. In fact, that number is much closer to 100% because most of those who claim to be Democrats (Marxist/Progressives) advocate for the same policies for which Bernie Sanders and Hillary advocate. Those policies are socialist policies. The 41%, even though grossly under stated, is still remarkable because it comes from one who claims the Democrat (Marxist/Progressive) Party advocates for the American and Constitutional values.
What the Marxist/Progressive Party (Democrat) is doing is very standard for those who advocate for collectivist policies including those who openly call themselves socialists always do. They soften the term socialist by using the politically correct term Democratic – Socialist. Remember, the United States is a Republic. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) use the term “democratic socialism” to imply that their brand of socialism will be based on the principles of freedom and correspond to the principles upon which the Untied States was founded. This is not only a misleading implication, it is a total lie.
The United States was founded on the principles of Individualism which places the rights of the individual above those of the collective. The achievements of the individual are to be encouraged and celebrated even though those achievements exceed the expectations of others and even exceed the imposed limitations by the collective. Individualism always encompasses rule of law, limited government, divided government, and sovereignty by the people.
Collectivism, which includes socialism, places the imposed limitation of the collective above the aspirations of the individual. Thus, you have the collectivist advocate for policies like a steeply progressive income tax for the purpose of sharing the wealth. Sharing the wealth, by its very definition, must include a vehicle such as a state-run welfare system to collect the “excess” earnings of the achiever and then redistribute those funds to whomever they believe is deserving of receiving them. Collectivism, in order to function must be a society with arbitrary law, big and controlling government, a concentration of power in the bureaucracy, and the state has to be sovereign with the people dependent on the state and thus the people become servants, slaves, or serfs to the state.
Tyrannical dictators always claim to be democratic with the implication that their tyranny is desired by the people. Democratic and freedom are not synonymous but, in most cases, they are antonyms.
The Revolutionary War was fought so we the people could be free, not so we could be a democratic socialist nation. The Revolutionary War was fought so we could be free from the dictates of government dominating our lives and our interests. The Marxist/Progressive Party (Democrat) party has as their primary goal to reverse the victory of the American Colonists and once again have government dominate the lives and the interests of the people. Use whatever term you like, but the end result is still a dictatorial government dictating the lives and the interests of we the people. This is TYRANNY.
