ELDER PATRIOT – “The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” – Norman Thomas (1884-1968) six-time U.S. Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America
Anyone who continues to question whether Democrats are really Socialists can no longer be taken seriously. The overnight poll following their first debate is currently appearing on the Drudge Report. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders the self-described Socialist is leading with over 57% of the 251,097 votes.
In second place with 24% of the vote is Jim Webb. Webb is another politician who advocates inflicting even more pain on the working stiffs in order to feed his constituencies of bloodsucking public employees and society’s non-contributors.
That’s a whopping 81% of Democrats with their feet firmly planted on the bedrock of historical denial.
Mr. Sanders opening statement rocked the house with his call for more money for education, apparently funded by making the need for incarceration less necessary. This was a clear political play to curry favor with the powerful teachers’ unions.
What was missing, what’s always missing from liberals’ high-sounding plans for improving the national condition is the transitional strategy that would make for an effective solution.
Since it was established in 1979 The Department of Education has been an abject failure despite repeated and significant funding increases and restructuring. Unless, of course, its goals were to influence the national education agenda for advancing Socialist thought among our student population, destroy the legitimacy of American sovereignty, and consistently feeding the bloated salaries, benefits and pensions of the teachers. In that case it’s been a resounding success.
Sad to say but the teachers themselves have devolved into useful idiots. At a family dinner we were discussing how Obama got re-elected when the two teachers sitting with us admitted voting for him the second time. When asked why, their only answer was their union told them to. Despite repeated questioning they had no other answer.
These are the indoctrinaires who are supposed to be teaching our children critical thinking skills. Given that their jobs have been reduced to reciting prepared lesson plans extolling Marxism and the evils of being an American, why can’t we replace them with B1 Visa holders from those countries that know what Marxism is really about and save a bundle of money?
The answer to that question is easy. That wouldn’t serve the modern day Democrat’s agenda well because, as Ronald Reagan pointed out:
“How do you tell a Communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”
