The Destructive Operating Philosophy of the Democrats


Since President Kennedy’s term ended abruptly, it has continually been the operating philosophy of the Democratic Party to take from those who produce and give to those who don’t produce. In examining the economic programs of both Senator Clinton and Senator Obama, it is clear that this philosophy will be applied with a heavy hand should one of them be elected president. They plan to do away with the Bush tax cuts on earned income, reinstate the death tax and also greatly increase capital gains taxes on all of us who own common stocks and mutual funds, and who save for our retirement in this way.

This philosophy greatly appeals to people of no ambition and to others who have been led to believe that there is something evil about profits, capitalism and corporations - the engines that have led to the greatest prosperity mankind has ever known. Democratic politicians and their willing accomplices in the mainstream press constantly refer to conspiracies and corruption on the part of entrepreneurs and corporations, and show little understanding of what makes this country work and what made this country great. The common man here and in other developed countries have a standard of living today that was available in earlier times only to a few people of royalty, while most people lived wretched, short lives of incredible poverty and despair, and with this higher standard of living has also come a doubling of our life expectancy.

The Democratic Party is also filled with bitter people on the left who hate their country, having suffered some terrible trauma in their childhood that shaped their lives forever. They complain about Columbus Day; they complain about slavery; they complain about rich people (although many of them, in a marvel of inconsistency, are themselves quite wealthy); they complain about oil companies and the consumption of oil – the one precious commodity that is our lifeblood and without which none of the progress of the human condition would be or have been possible.

Some on the left claim AIDS is a government plot to wipe out black people; some claim that 9/11 was planned by Vice President Cheney or, alternately, that we deserved it. None on the left seem capable of understanding that Saddam Hussein and his thugs had to go in the interest of stability of the area of the world that sits on an ocean of cheap oil, and to stop him from continuing to provide funds, weapons and training support to those who would destroy us and Israel. There are many groups of Islamofascists besides Al Qaeda who have been terrorizing and murdering Americans and other westerners.

These conspiracy theories, class hatreds and lunatic ideas are the stuff of Democratic votes; that is why most Democrat politicians advance them and almost never deny even the most idiotic of these fantasies, and since the liberal left has taken over much of the media, including the NY Times, the Washington Post, Newsweek, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and PBS, we seldom get a truthful account of anything from them.

The long series of lies by Hillary Clinton and the posturing, hate-America and ultra-left wing positions of Barack Obama should wake some people up. It is up to the rest of us, who have some understanding of how this country works, to keep reminding people of their true nature and objectives. It is also up to us Republicans to remind our party not to succumb also to the temptation to buy votes, which practice led to the disastrous defeat in 2006.

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage." -- Alexander Tyler

I think that some Democrats hate their country, and most have a disregard for the safety and well being of their country. You can believe what you want to believe, but you have idiots like Nancy Pelosi who is holding up the FISA Amendment and jeopardizing your safety and mine. A person doesn't need to be a rocket scientist to understand this. As far as the Iraq War is concerned, I'm glad that they went in there and got rid of a murdering tyrant who was stirring up trouble for everyone. Of course the Iraq War is providing stability in the Middle East, and we're doing what we set out to do, and that's annihilate terrorists. Would you rather fight them on our soil instead? If you want to see real instability, we'll wait for Obama or Clinton to get elected and pull out of that country. Like the Vietnam pullout, there will be a blood bath which you Liberals will care less about again, but unlike the Vietnam War, these terrorists will come here to get you, and finger pointing which is very prevalent among Liberals isn't going to help your situation.
Russ,
All I have to say is that I'm in complete agreement with everything that you have written in this latest post. I see it the same way you do, and I'm not even a Republican. I'll never be a Democrat, that's for sure. If I ever do join a party, it won't be a party made up of a bunch yellow cowards who want to surrender to the enemy. I haven't seen a Democrat do anything but screw up this country. They don't get anything right. The folks need to smarten up and decide who is going to be a better leader for this country, "pie in the sky" Liberals who run on "hope and change" while playing to their base, or a man of integrity who knows first hand what war is, because he's "been there and done that."
