Especially with the midterm elections coming up, I am constantly amazed by how close the majority of these races are.
I really have a hard time believing that right around half of my fellow Americans are preparing to vote for democrat Representatives and democrat Senators.
We have seen repeatedly that the democrats in Congress are held on a very short leash by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. The party of “group think” is represented well by their liberal politicians, and they are severely ostracized if they wander off of the prescribed ideological reservation.
So what do the democrats want? Let’s take a look.
Democrats want to double down and even triple down on nationalized health care. Reinstating ObamaCare isn’t even acceptable for the democrats at this point. They want complete government control of health care, at a cost that would double or triple our annual budget.
Of course, this would mean higher taxes, and when I say “higher taxes” I mean an ungodly increase of our taxes.
Democrats want “open borders.” “Open borders” means anyone can come walking into our country from anywhere, at any time, and they assume all of the rights and benefits of an American citizen immediately upon entry.
There are a myriad of problems associated with this philosophy. As President Trump says, “A country without borders is not a country.” This concept sounds good while we’re sitting around, holding hands and singing “We Are the World,” but it’s not feasible when we’re talking about national security, spending budgets, allocations of benefits, national economic planning and maintenance, our election system. Not to mention our Constitution.
Democrats want abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). If democrats are promoting “open borders,” it only makes sense that they want to get rid of the law enforcement agency that deals with immigration violators and people bringing illegal drugs and other items into our country.
So, in addition to allowing anyone to walk into our country from anywhere, at any time, democrats want to allow anything and everything to be brought into our country without question.
Democrats want to change our economic system from capitalism to socialism. Socialism calls for public rather than private ownership or control of property and natural resources. According to the socialist view, individuals do not live or work for themselves, but for the good of the whole. Everything that people produce is in essence a social product, and everyone is entitled to a share in it. Society as a whole, therefore, should own or at least control property for the benefit of all its members.
Please note that our country, the wealthiest and most powerful country in the world, was built through capitalism. Also please note that socialism, or its close relative communism, has never been successful where tried around the world.
“The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.” – Former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher
Democrats want to stifle our freedom of thought. We see evidence of this every day. We see it when conservatives are verbally and physically harassed out in public. We see it on college campuses, where a diversity of thought is feared and looked down upon (this should be the last place where this should occur). We see it in the entertainment industry, where entertainers are shunned and criticized for independent thought, and the rest of us are inundated by their biased renderings on daily and nightly basis.
Democrats want to return to an America that puts global interests before the interests of our own country. Democrats are chomping at the bit to destabilize our economy and return the manufacturing and trading advantages back to our global neighbors.
Remember, their “guidebook” is “Rules for Radicals,” a book dedicated to “Lucifer’” by the way, by Saul Alinsky. Alinsky is Hillary Clinton’s mentor, and Barack Obama was a follower as well. Realizing this helps us to make more sense out of their actions.
The goal of the democrats, and Alinsky’s mission was, and is, to “incite constant struggle and agitation so that the oppressive ‘system’ would eventually be brought to its knees.” The core of Alinsky’s belief is destruction. Destruction of the “system” that allows a disparity of wealth (please see the prior section on socialism).
Democrats want our economy and freedoms to bow at the altar of “climate change, “global Warming,” whatever you want to call it. Liberals in America have successfully brainwashed many Americans, and others around the world, into believing the Earth is burning up, and the villain is carbon dioxide, the gas that makes all living things grow. It doesn’t take much to see their “climate change religion” is really based on fiction, not fact.
But this plays right into their globalist intentions, and would further raise the cost of food and energy for no rational reason.
Democrats have spent billions of taxpayer dollars financing a junk, “green,” science industry and worthless renewable energy schemes that just don’t work in the real world.
Democrats/liberals believe that our National Anthem is somehow “racist,” that our Flag is “offensive,” and that our history and heritage should be erased because it is “offensive” to some as well. Liberals in America are offended by so much that it is hard to keep track of. It’s a sad way to go through life, and I wish them well in overcoming their affliction.
This democrat “to do” list should be frightening enough, but it doesn’t even include the topics of abortion, our gun rights and the 2nd amendment, and the two-tiered justice system for members of “the swamp” and everyone else.
Is all of this really what these people want to see happen? Really?
So again I’ll say, I have a hard time believing that right around half of my fellow Americans actually support the democrat’s agenda. I have a hard time believing that right around half of my fellow Americans actually think the democrat’s agenda is good for them and our country.
I really have a hard time believing that right around half of my fellow Americans actually think at all.
