Chuck Schumer, from New York State, recently expressed the belief stated by Karl Marx relating it to politics in America today.
“Democrats (Marxist/Progressives) must embrace government. It’s what we believe in; it’s what unites our party; and, most importantly, it’s the only thing that’s going to get the middle class going again,” Mr. Schumer will say, according to his prepared remarks.
Republicans have successfully portrayed government as the source of the country’s ills, he argues, and Democrats (Marxist/Progressives) need to aggressively counter that sentiment before it sets in too deeply.
“If people don’t believe government can deliver, they’ll follow the Republican path,” he will say. “That leaves the job to Democrats. If we run away from government, the negative misperceptions about it will take root, and even if people support our ideas, they won’t believe government can deliver.”
“We must convince the middle class that the only way out of their morass is by embracing a strong and effective government, not demeaning it or running from it,” he will add.
In listening to this speech on C-Span, it was as if I was listening to Karl Marx. The verbiage was eerily consistent with Marx. There is a dramatic difference in America today, but it is not necessarily between Democrats and Republicans; it is the difference between the Marxist/Progressives, which dominated the Democratic Party, and Freedom Loving Americans who believe in the principles of our founding fathers and the United States Constitution.
