Just Why Does The Democrat Party Have Socialism In Mind For Us?

A friend of mine alerted me to a post, on a co-worker's blog that he thought was very inciteful. So, I checked it out. As it turns out, my friend was right. This guy has hit the nail on the head when it comes to the shortfalls of socialism and the absurdity of our nation ever even considering adopting it in place of our democratic republic form of government.

Those nations in Europe and around the world who have adopted "communist lite", socialist democratic forms of government are slowly but surely fading from healthy existence. A government can only tax its productive citizens but so much to pay for it's lazy, non-productive citizens' health & life-style needs. Eventually, the gig is up, and the socialist' ideal that "the government can solve your every need" house of cards argument comes crashing down, leaving a wake of destruction and personal loss in its wake.

FDR introduced the Democratic Party to this nonsense, and unfortunately, from LBJ's "Great Society" expansion towards more and more socialism in the 60's, to the communist Move's influence prevelant in the party today, the Democratic Party has sold out to ideologies that are enemies to the Constitution and to our democratic republican form of government.

The sad thing is that the party's followers don't see that, but rather instead, are sold on the erroneous notion that theirs is the mission that will make America even greater.

All of this despite the fact that communism has continued to fail every empire that adopts it, and that it's twin ideology, socialism, hasn't fared any better.

But then, reason is not always as important as how a concept "feels" to some.

What a shame.

Should the sacrifices made in 1776 be tossed aside for the empty promises of socialism?

I don't think so. How about you?

I have long wondered why people can't see how harmful socialism is to them. I think it is because it seems to benefit people. Welfare is a textbook example of socialism at its wors. It seems much more humane and positive to support those who can't work or can't find work than to do nothing about it, and it is. But when you run things out to their logical conclusion, it is a counterproductive service that only worsens things in the end. I believe that the heart is right if it says to give to those in need whether or not they could work. God says to give to anyone who asks. But I don't think it is helpful to run a government in a socialist way. The church must take the responsibility of this kind of thing, serving the needs that the world, in its selfishness, will not. Even though though many so called socialists probably can see the inherent problems with welfare, many socialist programs which are very well intended end up causing more problems than they solve and actually destroy that which they intend to sustain. I guess it is the nearsightedness that I can't understand. I really cannot fathom how people don't see that socialism and programs stemming from a socialist mindset are harmful. They truly believe they are helpful. If people really want to help (which I am sure they do, or they wouldn't start these programs in the first place), they should set up programs that will still be benefiting millions in 100 years and beyond. But thhese programs should probably not be set up by the government but by private institutions.
