They are NOT socialists, they are communists of the Marx variety out to destroy America.
"They are NOT socialists, they are communists of the Marx variety out to destroy America."
I couldn't agree more.
I agree but would add that most democrats don't know enough history and, in particular, the history of Marxism/Leninism/Stalinism to realize that they share goals and visions with their communist brethren.
I recently read (Whitaker Chambers' Witness as I recall) that the driving motivation for people who joined the communist party in the 20's and 30's was "the problem of war" and "the problem of the economy".
The communist (i.e. Soviet) solution to war was to be achieved by revolutions in the capitalist countries that would lead to a one world communist government. With only one government ruling the world no other body would have the resources to mount a war and that would be the end of war. Today the candidate for ruler of us all is no longer the Soviet Union - it is the United Nations.
Ask yourself: Who supports the United Nations and works to increase the power of that organization at the expense of freedom of the American people?
The Soviet solution to "the problem of the economy", that is the problem of "the poor", was the elimination of all private property all of which would be owned and controlled by the government for the good of all citizens. By this they hoped to achieve an egalitarian society where all worked and shared equally. It was Robin Hoodism taken to the ultimate limit. It failed miserably with millions starving to death and millions murdered because they wouldn't accept the communist system.
So ask yourself who wants to take from the rich and give to the poor and thinks this is way to solve all of societies problems?
Our real problem here is that given the predisposition of the Democrats to follow the Marxist program despite the human tragedy that it has brought to the world and the weak opposition from the Republicans almost certainly dooms us to a repeat of the Soviet experience.
