"I'm withdrawing from any consideration of being the Democratic Party's nominee," Webb told reporters in Washington.
If you watched the Democratic (Marxist/Progressive) debate last week this announcement came as no surprise. Webb was certainly correct that he was not wanted by CNN or the party hierarchy. He was very seldom allowed to speak and when he did the moderator tried to cut short his answers. More importantly, Webb was the odd person in the group. The other four argued that they were the most progressive candidate on the stage and their views of promoting Marxist philosophy supported their claims.
Webb on the other hand was far more conservative, so much so that at times he sounded to the right of many of the Republican establishment including McCain, McConnell, Boehner, and McCarthy. For sure Webb had to feel like he was the only candidate on the stage that understood the founders wrote the United States Constitution based on the concepts of limited government and divided government.
The other four candidates constantly told how they would enhance and implement government programs that would “benefit” the people. Our founders told us that for every government program imposed the people have lost some freedom. The other four candidates explained how they would use executive privilege to make and enforce law they deemed important. Our fathers explained that the only way to maintain freedom was to limit power of any single branch by using the checks and balances in the constitution. The other four candidates explained how they would “tax the rich” and give to the others. Our fathers told us that democracy will cease to exist if you take from those who would work and give to those who would not.
What we saw was a Democratic Party (Marxist/Progressive) who openly declared the attributes of the Marxist philosophy and echoed Marx in his declaration of the evil of capitalism because of its excesses caused by greed and competition. Webb did not fit into this group. Webb did not agree that it is the role of government to bring about a fair and just classless society that is totally conforming and egalitarian.
Hegel, the philosopher who influenced Marx, explained that society will continue to evolve until it has reached a state of perfection. This would be a society with no conflict and in total harmony. Marx said that the “workers of the world” should unite and bring about a revolution that would result in a fair and just classless society that would operate in total harmony and have no conflict. Marx also explained that capitalism is the evil that prevents this harmony because the “greedy and rich” capitalists are the few who exploit the many. Marx went on to explain what was necessary to bring about his fair and just classless society. His road map was what the other four candidates embraced all evening as the course they would continue; the course already instituted by the likes of FDR, LBJ and BO. You can get a great understanding of that road map if you read “The Communist Manifesto.” I do not know how many of the four candidates have read it, but I know they certainly sang its praises by explaining how they would implement each of Marx’s criteria to reach that Utopian society.
This is the message we heard over and over from the other four candidates. This is the message of the Democratic Party (Marxist/Progressive). This is the message that Webb said has driven him from the Marxist dominated party. This is the message that will bring the same disastrous results to the United States that is has brought to every society that has embraced it.
