Democrats Are Socialists

Democrats and Socialists Are One and the Same

          Earlier this week both Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party Charwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz were unable to explain the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist when questioned repeatedly by MSNBC Hardball host, Chris Matthews. And for a very good reason…there is no difference! The once proud Democratic Party in the United States has gradually been infiltrated by ultra-left-wing socialists since the election of Barack Hussein Obama in 2008. This abrupt departure from traditional American values resulted from a loose collection of voters, including star-struck collegians, those with a racial guilt complex, a few hard core Marxists and a lot of uninformed voters who didn’t take time to find out that Mr. Obama is a socialist.

Republican Party Remains at the Center

           Back in 1960 the Republican Party was just to the right of center and the Democratic Party was just to the left of center, both actually very close in their ideals and principles. A review of the Republican Party Platform of 1960 reveals that the Party of Lincoln has changed very little since that time. On the other hand, the Democrats have veered far to the left of the party of President John F. Kennedy. For the benefit of recent graduates of universities like Harvard, UCLA and the like, especially those majoring in Gender Studies and Black Studies, I thought it might be helpful to review the definitions of a few important political terms. It is essential that every American high school graduate who intends to vote be familiar with the following basic concepts:

Capitalism: An economic system that features private ownership of the means of production (factories, land, etc.) and in which market forces determine the way in which goods are produced and the means by which income and profit are distributed.

Socialism: a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange of goods should be owned collectively or by a centralized government that plans and controls the economy.

Marxism: Marxist theory views socialism as the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism.

Communism: a theoretical political and economic system derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.

Capitalism Does the Most Good for the Most People

          It’s interesting to note that socialism rarely progresses to the utopia of communism that Marx envisioned, because dictators don’t want to give up their power…think Stalin, Mao and Hugo Chavez. As Lord Acton so aptly put it, ‘Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely’. While the Democrats in the United States today think of themselves as ‘progressive’, they are actually regressing to a political system that has failed everywhere it has been tried. Even the Russian Federation, the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the People’s Republic of China are moving away from socialism and towards capitalism. As British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher famously remarked, ‘The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money’. So let us resolve to educate the ‘low information voters’ about the perils of socialism and return the Democratic Party back to its roots so that we can continue to have a vibrant two party system in the United States. And above all else, let’s not make the same mistake thrice.
