Dangerous Discredited Ideas That The Dems Keep Pushing

Written by William Pauwels on April 5, 2018

Someone recently posed to me: “I wonder if our political system will eventually just self-implode?”

That’s a good question!

The pro-socialist Democrat Party is destroying the U.S. This is why whoever is running for either re-election or is running as a new candidate in November should be outspoken in explaining what this Democrat Party stands for: progressivism, even quasi-socialism. It is not enough to speak out against a particular Democrat. They have to run against the Democrat Party itself.

I once heard Karl Rove say on Bill O’Reilly’s show, “Voters are not stupid”. How naïve.

I’ve also heard Republicans state that the Democrat Party stands for nothing. But they do stand for something — and none of it is good for us.

Actually, Socialism and Communism have been pretty much discredited as viable systems.

Capitalism tends to be unpopular, although it works best in creating total economic wealth.

Quasi-Socialism – a mixture of Socialism and Capitalism – seems to be the more popular formula nowadays. It’s pretty much what we have here in the USA, Europe and Asia.

Some countries, like China, have combined Communism with Capitalism. Communism was a drastic failure in both China and Russia – so Capitalism came to the rescue. That’s pretty typical. Venezuela and Cuba are the current skeletal remains of Communism.

Here in the USA, the Democrat Party in recent years has been promoting Progressivism – another name for more extreme Quasi-Socialism. It is what Obama and Hillary and Bernie Sanders and some of their predecessors favor. It doesn’t work very well when compared to the less extreme Republican version, e.g., the Trump Agenda of Putting America First.

Keep in mind that the overall prosperity of a nation is dependent on the collective productivity of its people at a profit.

The Democratic Party doesn’t seem to grasp this truth.
