It is an old tune that we continue to hear; the left continues to put agenda and party before people and country. It has been the desire of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party to transform the United States into a collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same) state for at least 100 years. The progress they have made is truly phenomenal. Norman Thomas, (1884-1968) six-time U.S. Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America, told us how it would happen and why the Socialist Party of America was no longer necessary, but in fact a duplicate.
“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.”
"I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform."
They have practiced the communist axiom of “the ends justify the means” to perfection. We are again seeing this in evidence as they use the China Virus to promote their agenda. As a part of their demands for the $2T stimulus to pass, they wanted a large part of the “Green New Deal” plus their means of increasing their ability to fraudulently manipulate elections by requiring universal vote by mail.
Collectivist activists are proposing a “green stimulus” plan that would aim to boost the economy through the implementation of environmental reforms in various sectors. The advocates and academics behind the plan outlined their at least $2 trillion proposal that aims to accelerate the transition away from fossil fuels and create “green jobs” in an open letter to Congress posted Sunday. The activist proposal aims to make changes to areas including housing, transportation, manufacturing, energy, and farming.
The collectivist has had as a major goal to bring about complete financial equality. In different revolutions we have seen this is done by ridding a nation of entrepreneurs, including the small business owner. The longer the different state and cities can be on lockdown, the more and more businesses will be forced to close. The owners, the people most hated by the collectivists, will lose their equity and workers will suffer greatly. The collectivist has never cared about the people, either the owner or the worker, so long as their goal of equality is met.
The president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Sunday said its latest poll shows a "terrifying" fact that one out of 10 members say they are less than a month away from permanently going out of business.
Equality, under any collectivist system means that all people are equally poor. Poverty rates under socialism always greatly exceed poverty rates under capitalism. The collectivist response, including the response under collectivist Franklin Roosevelt, is all is good so long as equality is achieved, and people are more and more controlled by the state because they are more and more dependent on the state.
Continue the lockdown is their cry. They will tell you it is for safety, but that is a lie, it is to bring about equality and eliminate liberty. Norman Thomas was correct when he said Americans will accept socialism and the proponent of socialism is the Democrat Party.
