THE WATCHMAN: Do Democrats Want A Socialist America?
Isaiah 62:6~ On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; All day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves…
People need to have a greater understanding of our government today and a more clear picture of the Republican Party vs. the Democrat Party by examining their core beliefs. Simply put…it comes down to this fact: Which party wants more Government control and which party stands for a much less, long-arm Government control into the lives of the American people?
In the Democrat Party, there is one phrase that always seems to come forth loud and clear through every Democrat Presidency. None made this more in your face than Barack Obama. That phrase… Share the wealth. This is one of the Democrat Party’s core beliefs, which is a true picture of a socialistic idea (a thought, conception, notion, any conception existing in the mental understanding, awareness, or activity).
Obama’s Administration pushed this agenda through many of the ideas they had on healthcare (they wanted universal healthcare and would pay for it by forcing each taxpayer to pay a penalty if they didn’t want to purchase healthcare). They also bailed out several large corporations by using the taxpayer dollar. Several companies have not paid back the government to this day. Raising taxes is the classic democratic foundation to fund all their socialistic agenda.
Bernie Sanders finally came clean and admitted to being a Democratic Socialist, promising free healthcare for all, free college tuition and extending all the programs already put into place by Obama. More people were put on food stamps under Obama than any other President in U.S. history. He gave away cell phones, traveled the world, opened the southern border to the world, and promised entry to all who would come. So many Americans still believe that this leftist ideology is the best for all Americans. The deception here astounds me, as many Democrats are well-educated and even claim to be Christian, yet they vote for a party that has placed in their party platform, validation for abortion and the rights to many different programs for the LGBTQ community.
People don’t seem to understand that if a person lives off the Government they don’t have control of their own life. Medicaid, food stamps, etc. were designed to be a safety net for the needy just for a season, until a person could stand alone. It was never designed to keep an entire ethnic group under the thumb of the government, just for votes, which would keep them in power and in control. Unfortunately, if you share these truths with many, they just don’t see it or refuse to see it. They are deceived.
Let’s look back at the roots of the Democrat Party. A little history that might offend some, but truth is truth. The Democrat Party in the 19thcentury supported or tolerated slavery because the southern states needed the slaves to work their fields. A point that too many Black Americans don’t understand, is that it was Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, that pushed his agenda to free the slaves. Even now, the Democrats seem to really care about all ethnic groups and preach loudly that the Republicans don’t care about them. In reality, they just want more people to vote for them and support their socialist agenda.
The Republican Party advocated a decentralized government with limited powers and did not support slavery. In the link below, under the Democrat Party, there is an area called the “BLACK CODE” which was used by the Democrat Party to keep all black peopleas slaves. I find this interesting because I believe the Democrat Party still wants to hold all Black Americans as slaves. Believe me, there is no prosperity in living on food stamps, welfare, and Medicaid. If any Black American wants to freely vote Republican, they are often ostracized by other Black Americans. This link may promote a better understanding of the history and foundation of the Democrat Party vs. the Republican Party.
Kanye West made a bold statement that I believe holds true. “The reason why I brought up the 400 years point is because we can’t be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years. We need free thought now,”which I believe goes along with the article just like the Black Code held by the Democratic Party in the 19thCentury. There is a black lady named Harriet Tubman who was a slave in Maryland in 1820. In 1849 she fled and was known as the “Moses of her people” and led hundreds of slaves to freedom. Harriet Tubman said this, “I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more, if only they knew they were slaves.”
In my own opinion, Kaye West and Harriet Tubman are both on target as far as freedom for black Americans, “wanting to be totally free from a slave mentality.” The only difference between now and when there was slavery in the south, is that the masters now, would be the American Government, providing a small part of the needs of the people…just enough to keep them under their control and keep them voting for the Democrat ticket.
Allowing Socialism to become the ruling ideology of America would take us back to Civil War days because there would be no freedom for Black Americans.
I wrote three articles that covered Socialism vs. Communism vs. Capitalism. In these, I broke down each type of party that exists to give the reader a more clear picture of where we are today as a Nation. It also shows which agenda has provided prosperity for the people, compared to the other two.
A real clear picture of a country that is in serious trouble is Venezuela. They are a socialist nation. Their people are suffering for lack of food and other necessities… to the point of having no toilet paper. Their people are suffering while the leaders become rich.
In my opinion, that is exactly what is happening on the entire West Coast of our own country. Allowing the stream of illegal immigrants to enter our country, be put on our Government programs such as food stamps, health care, and other programs, has brought California to its knees. Now many are living in tents on the streets.
Vladimir Lenin, Communist tyrant-dictator of Russia once said, “The goal of Socialism is Communism.”
This would be a good pointto bring up to any Democrat voter and wait for a response.
Before you vote for the socialistic agenda of the Democrat Party, I encourage you to examine the link that I have below. Do an honest introspection into your own ideals and philosophy. Do you want all Americans to be free or do you want certain groups to be put under the thumb of a socialist government with the pretense of helping people? This link on socialism provides greater depth: Venezuela’s Struggle to Survive.
I believe it is very clear. The Democrats want to gain loyalty of voters via socialist programs (i.e. food stamps, Medicaid) to gain control of certain segments of the American public and thereby, influence elections. Republicans want less government and want to empower people to stand on their own, and not count on government to provide for their basic needs. In other words, Republicans want people to be free…free to live up to their own potential and earn money to provide for their needs and beyond.
