Both Chris Matthews of MSNBC Hardball fame and Chuck Todd of NBC Meet the Press fame asked Democrat/Socialist National Committee Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Shultz what the difference was between a Democrat and a Socialist. Rather than answer the question, because there is no difference, Shultz said it is really about the difference between Democrats and Republicans. While that difference is stark if we are comparing Democrat/Socialists to real Republicans, not RINOS, the reality is that the Obama Democrat Party really is the Socialist Party of America. Finally, there are some Republicans running for President that will actually use the word Socialist and Socialism when speaking of the big government programs that are bankrupting our country.
Let's face it. Socialists support big government schemes, higher taxes and the higher the better, redistribution of income, free market capitalism; but only as a necessary evil to tax and control, more regulations that intrude on all aspects of daily life, as many people as possible on the dole, wacko environmentalism as another means of taxation, a weak national defense, open borders, gun control, limits on freedom of speech and religion and unlimited access to abortion right up until birth. This is the platform of the Obama Democrat/Socialist Party. The old Democrat Party, which was really the ideology of RINOS, as well, complicit in enacting 100 years of Socialist Creep; but with a strong national defense died when Barack Obama was first elected President.
Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, an avowed Socialist is running for the Democrat nomination for President and he along with Socialist Senator Elizabeth Warren of Taxachussets are dragging Hillary Clinton further and further to the left to accommodate their Socialist ideology. In Europe, what we call Democrats in the United States are proud to be called Socialists. So, it is about time that all Democrats just come out of the closet and admit that they are Socialists adherents of Socialist ideology. It is not a crime; just stupid because where ever Socialism has prevailed in history, it has led to higher poverty, a lower standard of living for the people, misery and in some cases even murder so that Socialists can continue feeding at the trough.
But we often have Stupid in America because the Takers in society expect the Makers, to care for them. And, to make it happen, the Takers vote for Socialists advocating big government and more people on the dole one way or another. It is what it is. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz should just state the obvious. There is no difference at all between Socialists and Democrats. They are one in the same.
