Posted on 03/10/2010 9:06:07 AM PST by ezfindit
CNN adds that By 2020 the (CBO) estimates debt held by the public would reach $20.3 trillion, or 90 percent of GDP. Thats up from 53 percent of GDP in 2009.
I suspect that most Americans, if asked whether these numbers trouble the Democratic leadership and President Obama, would answer in the affirmative.
They would be wrong.
They would be wrong not because the Democratic Party or the president are economically illiterate or bad individuals, but because the Democratic Party and the president are leftists. And most Americans, including most Democrats, do not understand the left. They may understand liberalism; but President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and most Democratic representatives and senators are not liberals; they are leftists. And most Americans do not understand the difference between liberal and left.
They do not realize, for example, that there is no major difference between the American Democratic Party and the leftist social democratic parties of Western Europe. They do not know that from Karl Marx to Obama, the left (as opposed to liberals) has never created wealth because it has never been interested in creating wealth; it is interested in redistributing wealth.

Cause they’ll blame Bush anyway
It gives them a perfect excuse to raise taxes and fees and everything else.
well written. from the article:
I used to believe that left and right have similar goals for America, that they just differed in the means they wanted used to get there. I was mistaken. The left has a very different vision of America than those who hold the founding values of America, most especially individualism and small government. And if the price of a once in a lifetime possibility of getting to a giant welfare state dominated by the left is Americas steep financial decline, that is a price fully worth paying.
They are both variants of statists and both are evil.
I enjoy Dennis Prager, but I don't think he truly understand the leftist politicians if he doesn't think they are bad individuals. They are liars, thieves, and out for political and personal power at the expense of our country. They makes them bad, evil individuals in my book.
Maybe leftists are doing evil unto everyone because their philosophy is based on worship of or from the lord of this world, Satan himself:
They really believe that.
Look up The Progressive Caucus. These are House members who are really members of the Democratic Socialist Party USA; the caucus website used to be hosted on DSUSA’s servers.
After a little exposure, they moved to some server owned by Bernie Sanders, who was a Socialist when he was in state politics and is now an “independant”.
Some of the Progressive Caucus people have been seen wearing the gloves-and-roses pin of DSUSA.
No, they are not like us at all.
The left will soon find out that socialism/command economy eventually dries up from lack of capital.
Like Thatcher said, “In socialism, you eventually run out of other peoples money.”
I’m right there to help them along. I consider it ‘tough love’ to engage in the ongoing capital strike.
Some of the discussion in other threads revolves around the question, "just how far will these people go to achieve their vision of a one-armed People's Republic?"
Look into Nancy Pelosi's eyes before you answer ...... that far, is how far.
They don't care about that stuff. They aren't about capital or economies. They're about a command economy.
During the siege of Sevastopol in 1942, a Soviet officer was sweating a bunch of dock hands offloading a ship. They were humping sacks and crates and had been at it for hours. One guy was complaining. The officer walked over to the guy, got his attention, and said, "Open your mouth." The guy did. The officer produced his sidearm and shot him in the mouth.
"Command economy." That's how it works, where the rubber meets the road.
Bona fides: True incident, related in the wartime book, Return to Sevastopol.
And they know that if they run the debt up high enough some useful idiot rino will reach reach across the aisle and raise taxes for them.
If the leftist leadership succeeds in their goal they had better make arrangements to live in heavily gated communities. There are lots of Americans who will not take kindly to having their way of life destroyed.
