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. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” – Norman Mattoon Thomas Six-Time Presidential Candidate of the Socialist Party
Thomas was correct. The proof comes from the highest levels of the Democratic Party who are forced to obfuscate rather than answer the question, “What is the difference between Democrats and Socialists?”
The Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee Debbie Wasserman-Shultz couldn’t/wouldn’t answer the simple question asked of her twice, a week apart by NBC-MSNBC hosts, Chris Matthews and then Chuck Todd.
The fact that she couldn’t site any differences between the agenda of today’s National Democratic Party and full-blown socialism after having days to come up with any way to reasonably differentiate between the two tells you all you need to know about how the Democrats view their agenda.
Then there’s the party’s pre-determined nominee Hillary Clinton who is easily among the most corrupt politicians in our, or any nation’s history. Madame Hillary also was at a loss to answer the question when Chris Matthews asked it of her.
Madame Clinton’s coronation in light of her incredibly corrupt history and based on promises that she has no intentions or means of fulfilling is reminiscent of Argentina’s Evita Peron who seduced a people and then drove that once wealthy nation into bankruptcy and third rate status.
Madame Hillary would like you to think there is something new to her socialist plan. There isn’t. It’s the same recycled prescription for economic hardship that corrupt leaders have always used to seize power and wealth for themselves.
Wasserman Schultz repeated references her party’s “big tent” but who are these Democrat voters? In 2012 they were immigrants and largely uneducated. Obama received 93% of the African-American vote, 71% of the Hispanic vote and 73% of the Asian vote. Among the educated class, only college graduates deserted Obama no doubt a result of being forced to bear the financial brunt of Obama’s “redistributive” policies.
Democrat Elites continue pushing for limitless immigration to insure their electoral success with callous disregard for the impact their policies have on the people already here, both native-born Americans and the immigrant class.
During Republican administrations we are constantly reminded of the growing gap between “rich and poor.” Unless you are prepared to destroy all incentives for entrepreneurs that will always be the case and is the reason socialism has failed everywhere and will always fail. The more important question should be, “have those in the bottom of the economic demographic experienced an improvement in their standard of living?”
Democrats can never answer that question affirmatively, which is why the mainstream media only makes income disparity an issue when Republicans are in office.
In the process Democrats are proceeding to turn the United States into a third-world country.
