Hillary the Democratic Socialist

By Douglas V. Gibbs

When asked what the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist is, Hillary Clinton avoided answering, and instead said, "I am a progressive Democrat."

Let's go back in time for a moment, just to reach a little clarity. . .

The 1936 “Communist Election Platform.”
  • “We demand higher wages and vacations with pay.”
  • “We demand a 30-hour work week without reductions in earnings, at trade union rates and conditions, in private industry and on public works.”
  • “We favor a federal system of maternity and health insurance.”
  • “It is the obligation of the American government to establish an adequate system of social insurance for the unemployed, the aged, the disabled and the sick…”
  • “Free education and financial assistance to the youth and the children must be guaranteed by both federal and state appropriations.”
  • And then there’s: “We demand that social and labor legislation shall be financed and the budget balanced by taxation of the rich.”
Some of those demands have become law, thanks to Democrats.  Those that haven't are on the Democrat Party's wishlist.

Ask the average person on the street what the difference is between Democrats and Republicans, and it will go something like, "The Democrats are for the poor, and the Republicans are for the rich."  Never mind that Democrat policies ultimately benefit larger corporations, and are designed to pay the poor to stay poor.

Conservatives are not against helping the poor; they just don’t want to turn the safety net into a hammock—and liberals do. And, it's about authorities.  A safety net is none of the federal government's business.  There are no constitutional authorities for the federal government to have that kind of influence on society.  The federal government was created to handle the external issues.  Internal issues are the responsibility of the States.

The federal government has imposed so many costs, mandates, and unconstitutional intrusion into our lives, now it's not about which side is better. . . we are in the final throes of liberty.  The destruction of State Sovereignty is the destruction of the recipe for liberty.  The difference between the two ideologies, liberalism versus conservatism, is now not just a difference in opinion, but a fight for the very soul of America.

Which will you choose?  The system that made us the most prosperous country in history?  Or the system that has proven time and time again in history to destroy liberty and slaughter the innocent?

Understand, a refusal to vote at all is a vote for Hillary Clinton.  A no-vote or a Never Trump vote is a vote for the destruction of our system.  It's got to be one, or the other.  Vote logically.  Vote for the one least likely to destroy the original intent of the United States Constitution.
