-Democratic Party Platform
The Democrats have implemented this philosophy again in 2016. The Democrats have a reason why they want to have all people who are alive, dead, a citizen, a non-citizen, and even animals with human names registered to vote. If a name is registered, that name can cast a ballot. The Democrats believe this is true democracy and the best way to fundamentally transform the United States to their idea of what we should be.
The Democrats are going on the offensive to make voting easier. The draft language in the party's 2016 platform is much stronger than it was in 2012, and that's mostly good for democracy they say.
The party's shift from its defensive crouch started in the states, with the adoption of automatic-voter registration rules in Oregon, California, West Virginia, Connecticut, Vermont and Illinois. Hillary Clinton endorsed these efforts last summer, and now the national Democratic platform is being written accordingly.
The smorgasbord of measures includes an expected call to restore Voting Rights Act provisions that the Supreme Court weakened as well as a relatively new fight at the national party level for “voting rights for those who have served their sentences,” referring to former felons. Currently, many states delay restoring the vote to ex-felons, and some states have a lifetime ban.
Democrats also will support “expanding early voting and vote-by-mail, implementing universal automatic voter registration, same day voting, ending partisan and racial gerrymandering, and making Election Day a national holiday.” Most important here is the automatic registration combined with Election Day voter sign-up for anyone who isn't already registered. In most democracies in the world, registration is not a barrier to voting.
This idea of “expanded democracy” is not based on some isolated ideal. This idea of “expanded democracy” is a part of an overall plan. Obama told us in 2008 that it was his goal to fundamentally transform the United States. The United States was already in the throes of this transformation. It is the goal of Obama and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) to transform the United States to a Marxist state. That was the same goal Lenin had for the Russian state.
For this transformation to be completed, it is necessary for the “worker” to overthrow his oppressor. The oppressor is whatever and whoever is standing in the way or opposes a country under Marxist rule. This oppressor class would be “Freedom Loving Americans” who believe in liberty, the United States Constitution, and Individualism as opposed to Collectivism. (self-reliance not government reliance, right to pursue happiness not guaranteed outcome)
Lenin also had as his goal to fundamentally transform Russian Society to a Marxist state. Lenin’s goal was the same as that of FDR, Obama, and Hillary. Lenin also understood the necessity of “expanded democracy" to accomplish this goal. Lenin understood “expanded democracy” was the way for the oppressed to free themselves from the oppressors. This is what took place in Eastern Europe under the Soviet bloc, China, Cuba, and most recently in Venezuela. This is what Obama and Hillary have in mind for the United States.
If you read the quotes of Lenin below, you will hear them echoed by Obama and Hillary, frankly all the Marxist/Progressive Party (Democrats), time after time after time. That is because they believe the Marxist state established by Lenin in Russia is what would be best for the United States. Lenin saw “expanded democracy" as a means unto the end as do Obama, Hillary, and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats).
The dictatorship of the proletariat, i.e., the organization of the vanguard of the oppressed as the ruling class for the purpose of suppressing the oppressors, cannot result merely in an expansion of democracy. Simultaneously with an immense expansion of democracy, which for the first time becomes democracy for the poor, democracy for the people, and not democracy for the money-bags, the dictatorship of the proletariat imposes a series of restrictions on the freedom of the oppressors, the exploiters, the capitalists.
Lenin, State and Revolution (1917)
And so in capitalist society we have a democracy that is curtailed, wretched, false, a democracy only for the rich, for the minority. The dictatorship of the proletariat, the period of transition to communism, will for the first time create democracy for the people, for the majority, along with the necessary suppression of the exploiters, of the minority.
