WASHINGTON, Oct. 26, 2015 – A recent conversation with a lifelong Democrat and naturalized citizen from the Caribbean about politics illuminated the reason presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, an avowed socialist, has struck a chord with voters on the left.
The left is adept at appealing to voters on an emotional level, and it has been successful at labeling the Republicans as cold and greedy capitalists. Class envy has been impressed upon the left’s constituency almost at the DNA level. Time and time again, it has been implied that Republicans are racists and bigots, heartless when it comes to social issues and the welfare of minorities.
Democrats are portrayed as caring about the poor and the downtrodden. Leftists further claim capitalism is detrimental to the welfare of people and capitalists are motivated by greed while socialism is about equality.
On the other hand, Republicans were dispassionate and selfish.
Many of those who believe this are well educated and generally intelligent, but lack information on the nuances of politics. They are influenced by family members and the liberal media complex.
This leads to a low political IQ, or a low information voter.
People with that low political IQ, or the low information voter, are prime targets for liberal indoctrination.
By attaching their agenda to a humanitarian, moral and religious cause, liberals have been able to hide their true intent from their uninformed and misinformed constituency.
Who would not want to be on the side of righteousness, social justice and moral authority? Compassion is term the left banters about as if they invented it.
Acting on this knowledge, politicians on both sides of the aisle have come up with legislation touting names such as Social Security, No Child Left Behind, the Affordable Care Act and the Patriot Act.
To guarantee continued acceptance of their agenda, liberals have gone beyond the halls of government institutions and the walls of the church and made it a priority to influence and corrupt the minds of our children.
Today our children are nothing more than pawns in the eyes of liberals. They are vessels to be brainwashed, propagandized, and turned into social justice, anti-capitalist and environmental fanatics. This is achieved via the school’s curriculum and Hollywood cinema. Our children have become the mindless products of what they are being taught and what they are seeing on entertainment media.
Opponents of our governing system know that children are the perfect deception, the most innocent of decoys to direct their message through. Through our youths liberals can continue to program and direct them in bringing about the dismantlement and destruction of the most powerful nation known in modern times.
At the adult level, politicians continue to woo them via coercion, disinformation, and sometimes outright lies. Once they are trapped in the spider’s web, they are forced to participate in the government’s scheme, much like those who followed self-professed prophets such as Jim Jones and David Koresh.
The way government goes about this is to make things mandatory, of course, for your own good.
Where is Congress one might ask? Where is the opposition party, one wonders?
Unfortunately, establishment Republican leadership has never concerned itself with the core values that made the Republican Party the model for compassion and minority engagement. Few even realize, or care, that theirs is the party that liberated an oppressed people and secured their rights and freedoms.
These leaders, if you can call them that, seem to be responsible for the poor image the party has with minorities. Though liberals have lied about their role in slavery, and are trying their best to erase anything that may shed light in their role in it, the Republican leadership has failed to take liberals to task for their blatant lies or found it necessary to expose their socialist leanings.
Political apathy is another culprit. Many liberal supporters have little or no knowledge of who Sal Alinsky is or Bill Ayers and Margaret Sanger. Frank Marshall Davis, the president’s mentor, is in this group too. Few know the roles these people played in the lives of socialists such as Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Barack Hussein Obama and other prominent socialists.
Few know that they are being led, much like sheep to their slaughter, by these false prophets. Like those two infamous religious leaders Jim Jones and David Koresh, who began their pursuit and control over others by offering them a better deal than the one they felt they were handed, the Democrat Party is no different in its methodology and deception schemes.
First, they promise to take care of their constituency’s needs because they care and it is the humane and moral thing to do. Liberals have become adept at using scriptures and the church, to validate, justify and solidify their positions and expand their control over their subjects.
On the other hand, they are aggressive and relentless when it comes to demonizing the very people and organizations that can liberate the people under their captive influence and control.
They attack conservatives and capitalism. They push class envy, as well. They preach about inequality and fairness. They demonize the wealth producers. Their aim is to take from the rich and give to the poor. The proper term for this is redistribution. Candidate Obama revealed his hand on this matter when talking to Joe the plumber on the campaign trail. The left calls it social justice.
Americans have become prosperous, not because of redistribution of wealth or by raising the minimum income wage. How much we earn is largely based on our natural and acquired skills and talents and how much those skills and talents are worth, as judged by others. Free of government restraints, our citizens prospered.
Socialists believe that they, not the market, should decide one’s income. Of course, we know what income level they will place themselves at when all is said and done. But like everything the left goes after, it is all about controlling others. This is evident by the regulations that pour out of our government agencies by the week.
This is why liberals love people who are uninformed. They are susceptible to emotional arguments. They are more likely to see life as a zero-sum game. They are more likely to believe that the prosperous become so only at someone else’s expense. Notions along these lines feed their class envy.
Such people see government as their guardian, their protector and eventually their providers. They only know what they are told, not what they learn through research and self-discovery. They believe all is well as long as the country is under their party’s rule.
What they do not know, or understand, is that under the puppet master’s control, rights are eroded and liberties and freedoms are taken away, all under the guise of protecting ‘we the people’. Let’s face it; there are people who want to be taken care of. It is they who succumb to these power schemes. Apparently, their numbers are great. This is evident by the number of people support Bernie Sanders, the avowed socialist.
The problem for Republicans is that they have got to bulk up on their party’s proud history and let those who are moved on an emotional level know that the party of Lincoln is the party of true compassion. It is the party of liberty and freedom and prosperity. And it has the history to back it up.
Get people to understand that capitalism is what made this nation and its citizens prosperous, and that it remains sound, and you begin to turn the tide of how people feel about the grand ole party.
All Republicans need do is articulate what they historically stand for, and still stand for. They also need to remind people about the history of the Democratic Party, a party that has supported institutionalized slavery, enlisted the terror tactics of the KKK and fought every civil rights legislation that was brought up for a vote.
Republicans have to be educators, if the party is to survive. They need to point out the failings of socialism as if their lives depended on it, that it strips one of his or her individuality in favor of what is beneficial for the collective good, as determined by government.
If the party fails to do this, and the liberals get their way, they will be no better stewards of our liberties than the two warped minded self-professed prophets mentioned earlier in this piece.
Too often, people finally realize that the Utopia that they were promised was a lie, but by then they have been emotionally and mentally demoralized and disarmed and their liberties greatly restricted. Their liberators have now become their oppressors who control every aspect of their lives.
Once government, or anyone, controls your life, it is in a position to impact your life. In some places it can even take your life….then it is game over.
Understand that when these things happen, the America we know will cease to exist. What Thomas Jefferson said was:
The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.
But you can make a difference in stopping this decline.
- Support the political party that best defends and preserves your liberties and freedoms and your individuality.
- Get behind the political movement that best defends and preserves our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.
- Be not beholden to a party that promises you some unattainable Utopian dream. Why?
Because that dream is likely another government control scheme and nothing more. Remember Jim Jones and his failed Utopia in Guyana and David Koresh, leader of the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas.
These men were no different from a Castro, Mao, Stalin, Mussolini, Noriega or Hitler once they achieve absolute power and control. Our government leaders are just as susceptible to this sort of corruption.
As the saying goes:
‘Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely’
When you think socialism, Marxism, fascism and progressivism, think of these corrupted and ruthless men and what they put their people through. That is the horror of a dream that awaits you here in America if we do not stop this country’s descent into socialism.
