DEMOCRATS: WE MUST BETTER EXPLAIN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A DEM
This was the Story: Democrats are struggling to answer a simple question — "What's a Democrat?" — and must do a better job of explaining its core values to voters, according to a task force formed after the party's dismal showing in the 2014 election.
The Democrats are trying to do everything they can to not identify themselves based on the party has become based on the policies they advocate. The Democrats have become the party that is anti-constitutional and the party that should rename itself the Marxist/Progressive party. The leaders of the party, along with the rank and file, now explain that it is more important to implement their Marxist policies than it is to adhere to the United States Constitution. They also advocate more and more control of our business community as well as our individual lives. The polices they continue to advocate and implement drive our nation to that fair and just classless society outlined by Karl Marx. That is a society where all commerce is controlled through ownership or regulation by the state, and all in society totally conform to their ideals and are totally equal, socially and economically.
A recent poll revealed that over 60% of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party believe the Commander in Chief should be able to ignore the Federal courts if the Commander in Chief believes to ignore the Federal court is in the best interest of the country. We have also heard the vast majority of this same party supporting the action by Obama to ignore the immigration law by refusing to enforce it and then unilaterally establish new immigration law.
The adage that the ends justify the means is being fully implemented by them. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party has ignored the constitution back to at least the regime of Wilson. We must never forget that Marx said a totalitarian state must be implemented to bring about the full transformation to a fair and just classless society. This requires the elimination of rule of law and the implementation of arbitrary law. That is just what Obama did when he established a new immigration law unilaterally.
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party supports total conformity and equality.
Regulation and taxation out of Washington are crushing entrepreneurship. We have had more businesses closing than are opening. This is a recent phenomenon. Historically people work their way up the income ladder through entrepreneurship. It's the American way of entrepreneurial capitalism that has become much more difficult with increasingly meddlesome and burdensome regulation and extremely high taxation.
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party has been the advocate for more and more regulation and higher and higher taxes. The increasing regulation that greatly increases costs also is making more and more business decisions for the management. An owner today has less and less flexibility to react to market conditions because of the regulations. Taxes are the means by which wealth is redistributed.
Just as Obama refuses to refer to Islamist Jihadist Terrorists, the Democrats refuse to identify themselves properly as Marxist/Progressives. That is what it now means to be a Dem.
