Socialists - A Rose By Any Other Name

There are Democrats who apparently take offense at being called Socialists. The politically correct word for them is Progressives. However, the Democrat Party of Harry Truman, who made the decision to drop the atom bomb on Japan, or John Kennedy, who cut taxes, or Lyndon Johnson, who fought the Vietnam War and then was challenged from the left for the Presidential nomination, or even Bill Clinton, who proclaimed the "era of big government is over" is not the Democrat Party of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, or the remaining Democrats in Congress.

The Democrat Party of Obama, Pelosi, Reid and those Democrats that remain in Congress, is the party of Socialist Presidents Woodrow Wilson, who enacted the 16th Amendment to the Constitution to redistribute income, Franklin Roosevelt, who practiced class warfare and created the modern welfare state in America and Jimmy Carter, who hollowed out our military and spoke of the malaise in our country. Wilson, Roosevelt and Carter were Socialists in the European tradition. It is what it is.

It is very clear that with the election of Obama in 2008 and the defeat of moderate Democrats in 2010, those that remain in power represent the Socialist Party of America. While there still may be liberal Democrats in the Truman, Kennedy, Johnson and Clinton traditions, within our country, they don't happen to be in control of the Democrat Party. That ship sailed when Hillary Clinton lost the Democrat nomination for President in 2008. I am sorry if Democrats at large are offended by being called Socialists; but that is who they have elected to office in various blue and purple states and at the federal level. We can call it a rose by any other name, but a Socialist is a Socialist based on their beliefs and actions.

Generally, Socialists in America supports big, intrusive government, higher taxes and more regulation, stifling environmental restrictions that are killing jobs, staying in office for life, deficit spending that is bankrupting our country, bail outs to their big union supporters, ObamaCare including death counseling, CAP & TAX that will raise the cost of energy and destroy our economy, a weak national defense, weak border control and amnesty for illegal aliens, a weak approach to dealing with Terrorists, gun control, unrestricted abortion and an attack on religion and family values. This is the platform of the Democrat Socialist Party of today.

In 2010, the nation rejected the Socialist Agenda at both the federal and state levels by electing Conservatives, many of whom are Tea Party Members, that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in America.

Most important, the American people now realize that we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014, rather than Socialists, who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current and former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. Clearly, many Americans see Socialists as a clear and present danger to our way of life, which is the reason we must take back our country in 2012 and 2014. We can do it. We must do it preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
