America: The New Socialist Frontier
Anyone who watched the coming out party that CNN was so kind to throw for Kamala Harris last night saw exactly what was to be expected. A nakedly ambitious United States Senator with a dubious public service record repeatedly say "I Love My Country" and then proceed to lay out a blueprint for the destruction of the workings and precious ideals the made America the most prosperous and free country on earth. The high profile Senator has publicly opened up the 2020 election campaign with the rhetoric national democrats have so longed to put forth without fear. Outright Blatant Socialism.
Alexander Markovsky wrote last month at The Hill, that with the 2018 Democratic victory in the midterms, we saw new arrivals to the House of Representatives who are interpreting the elections as an endorsement of their own socialist policies. They dropped all the pretenses, they are proud Marxist-Leninists driven by the ideology and committed to converting this country into the United Socialist States of America. This militant crowd is comprised of uninformed and misinformed people looking at themselves as unfortunate, underpaid, underappreciated victims of capitalism, overwhelmed with jealousy that there are people who are everything they are not. They are the face of new Democratic Party – “We have been naught, we shall be all.”
The Democratic Party explicitly casts itself as an inheritor of Marxism. The Democrats’ demands are an almost total inversion of the Constitutional arrangements and traditional American values. The economic redistribution, open borders, repeal of the Second Amendment, the abolition of the Electoral College, the election of a president by popular vote, voting rights and free health care to illegal aliens are just part of the comprehensive strategy of putting the harness of socialism around the necks of the American people. The driving force of the Democratic Party is economic “inequality”, the argument socialists have never tired of invoking since the dawn of capitalism. The mantra brought into play by the French Revolution - “War to the palace, peace to the cottage” - is alive and well today in the Democratic Party.
The seductive idea of wealth redistribution has proved to be irresistible to the masses discontented by the inequities. The philosophy of envy and siphoning from the rich appeals to a large segment of the population that does not realize that the definition of “rich” is a spiral of devolution that eventually will reach every business and every individual who works for a living. Donald J. Trump is a disrupter of what had been a smooth transition to the bright socialist future. In a concerted effort to denigrate the President and paralyze executive authority, they are branding him a racist and blatantly subvert every program on his agenda. To render him ineffective, they actively support a collective mania for ever more sweeping investigations of dubious claims, rumors, unsubstantiated allegations and innuendos that has descended over the President, his family, his associates, and nominees.
People who cannot even spell “impeachment” demand one without any substantiation. The great historical irony is that unlike the Russian people who understood the perils of socialism and fought the Bolsheviks in a bloody three-year civil war that by some estimates took fifteen million lives, the freedom-loving Americans keep voting themselves into socialism.
