THE WATCHMAN: Is the Democratic Party Pushing for Socialism in the U.S.?
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…
I challenge the reader to take an introspective look within, to determine for themselves whether they really want to be free. I often say to my children and grandchildren “someone has to pay the do”. If we continue down this slippery slope of the far-left policies, who will be “paying the do”? I will answer this for you. We all will…through higher taxes, less options and reduced quality of health care (including: choice of doctor, hospitals, medicines, etc.) Unfortunately, there will be less jobs, because they want open borders, which encourages illegal immigration.
As I’ve stated in previous articles, Venezuela is ruled by the Socialist Party and the people don’t have choices, even for the basics: not enough food, housing…right down to toilet paper. When my wife went to Guatemala, the water was turned off by the city about 2 a.m., and was not turned on again until around 7 a.m. You better get a shower before or after, and forget flushing the stool. This was for a whole city and its surrounding areas. Under socialism the people do not really have a voice.
Exodus From California:
The State of California, which has gone far left, has become a state in which many are leaving. They have exorbitant taxes, are overrun with illegals, and may soon be bankrupt. Their sanctuary city policy is a huge problem. San Francisco, once a city considered a jewel for tourists, now has tent cities on city streets, and sports needles and human feces on the side of streets. Many families have become more terrified living in California, due to the tremendous gang population. The sanctuary city policy does nothing to help get criminals off the streets. In fact, many American citizens feel as though they have been set on the shelf in favor of illegals.
If you truly want to see to see the stench in California, which is caused by Democrat Socialist Party rule, you can check out this video. These wealthy and healthy Californians want the rest of America to pay for their wrong choices with taxpayer monies. Why would anyone want to be a socialist when it is clear to us that the policies in California are not working for them? In the end…nothing is free.
The link below takes you to an article about Bill SB-10, put forth by Governor Jerry Brown of California. This bill attempts to grant illegal aliens the ‘right’ to buy insurance through the state health-exchange.
The Democrats in California are also pushing for illegal immigrants to be able to vote. Yet, they blame Russia for meddling in our election process. In my opinion, California Democrats are meddling in the elections.
Venezuela Up Close:
As I shared previously, Venezuela is a good example of what is happening within a country that has gone under total socialist rule. When you click on the link below, in the article by Lisa Sullivan, you will read some horrific stories. It reinforces why no nation should ever desire to become socialist. Lisa was promised many things. The truth hit her in the face. Truth is sometimes hard to look at or admit, but we need to know the truth about socialism as a nation. Here are some highlights from Lisa Sullivan’s article.
- Acts of desperation to find a food source to keep the KIDS from CRYING, because for months, the shelves of the stores have been BARE. Lisa shares how this happened.
- One of the paragraphs hit on socialism to a T… (SOCIALISM = HUNGER)
- What happened?
- The harsh reality
- Solutions, anyone?

California Battles Big-Tech:
Silicon Valley wants to tax big tech just the same as Seattle, Mountain View, East Palo Alto, Cupertino and San Francisco. These cities blame the industry for inequality and overcrowding. They say companies have a stake in helping. There is also something called the Head Tax. I encourage the reader to click on the next link to see for yourself what this means.
Scenario: You work for a company which has done well. Suddenly, you find out that now you are at fault for the homeless problem, and you are about to get hit with .05 tax increase. Oh, I forgot to tell you also, that you made fifty million dollars last year. You will be hit with a 2.5-million-dollar tax bill, because you made fifty million dollars. Those who believe in Socialism call this sharing the responsibility and sharing the wealth. The money you worked for is given to whomever they determine. Not your choice of giving. In other words, your money is not actually yours, but is theirs to use as they see fit. This is true socialism. This is what I call victimization.
The far-left Democratic Socialist Party elected officials blame everyone else for their problems. At the present time, they seem to want to blame President Trump for everything, including Hurricane Florence bearing down on the East Coast. They refuse to take responsibility for the homeless problem in their cities. In Chicago they refuse to take responsibility for the murders which happen almost every weekend. These are perfect examples of Dysfunctional Leadership; always shifting the blame to others, refusing to deal with it, and failing to offer solutions, rather than solving their own problems. Unfortunately, election after election, they elect democratic leadership which continues down the same path of “shift the blame…and offer no solutions”.
When clicking on the link below, I do encourage you to click on Decrypted “Inside Amazon’s Big Showdown with Seattle”. Seattle is another Democratic-run city and very highly taxed. In the decrypted message there are several individuals speaking, such as a lady called Erica C. Barnet. These people are very concerned about the ‘head tax’. Could this happen in your city? Please listen to the arrogant city council member blaming poor people for what is going on. When I listened to what this smug woman said, I may have been tempted to call her a racist. I am so tired and fed up with Caucasians being blamed for everything! This is racism. Racism can occur in every ethnic group. Of course racism is not just a black and white problem.
As a Navy Veteran, I traveled to other countries and as a result, have seen the socialist system in practice. I saw extreme poverty, starvation, and prostitution (blatant and in your face), children begging for change, cattle roaming the streets, etc. The Political Insider did a survey and showed that 57% of the Democrats want a socialist lifestyle in America. Moreover, they think, quite uninformed, that this will give them free health care, free tuition, free almost everything. How naïve!!!!! Unbelievably, worst of all, those surveyed are many of our college and university students.
STRAWS: Thousand Dollar Fine or 6 Months in Jail
It is sheer stupidity in California regarding STRAWS. In Santa Barbara, California, if you hand out a straw to a customer you can get, per straw, a THOUSAND DOLLAR FINE or up to 6 MONTHS IN JAIL. However, in the past year, Governor Jerry Brown reduced to a misdemeanor, the failure to inform a sexual partner or blood-donor bank if you are HIV positive. It just amazes me that someone such as Jerry Brown, and others like him, are in a role of leadership. It seems that most of these lawmakers are for the most part, from the Democratic Party. I can’t imagine how they can sleep at night or even if they share any of the core values of many citizens in the United States.
We call the Democratic Party the ‘tax and spend’ party. They want to tax you and spend your money. The last time the Democratic Party really cared about the American taxpayer, and giving them a tax cut, was February 26, 1964, under Lyndon B. Johnson. He signed into law the sweeping tax cuts championed by his predecessor, John F. Kennedy. For this reason, in my opinion, this is all about power and control. It is not about caring for the middle class, despite their claim. It is also about lining their own pocketbooks. After all, how do some become millionaires, just by serving their country?
If I am right, then it would be true that the Democratic Party has become more of a Socialist Party, leaning towards a Communist Party. As an illustration, 51% of the Democratic Party of today, wants a socialist system.
Coming Up Next…
In the next article, I will cover the Education System, and consequently, how the Modern-day Education System has a lot to do with pushing toward a Socialist System.
