Take a look at the Democratic Party Platform and ask yourself these questions as you copiously go through their extensive plan for change that, allegedly, matters.
- How much taxpayer money will it take to sustain everything they have outlined and what does that add to the current National Debt?
- What level of dependency upon government controlled programs do these Democrat solutions leave recipients in?
- What level of forcible constraint on individual freedom does the Democratic plan have built into it?
Looking at the Democrats and their foundational platform I am reminded of a quote from Multiculturalism and Marxism by Frank Ellis as posted on DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
“Some have argued that it is unfair to describe Stalin’s regime as “totalitarian,” pointing out that one man, no matter how ruthlessly he exercised power, could not control all the functions of the state. But, in fact, he didn’t have to. Totalitarianism was much more than state terror, censorship, and concentration camps; it was a state of mind in which the very idea of a private opinion or point of view had been destroyed. The totalitarian propagandist forces people to believe that slavery is freedom, squalor is bounty, ignorance is knowledge, and that a rigidly closed society is the most open in the world. And once enough people are made to think this way, it is functionally totalitarian even if a single dictator does not personally control everything.”
David Horowitz’s tagline for Front Page Magazine is one I am co-opting to tag the Democrat plan.
So you say you are a Democrat?
What are you trying to dictate and who are you trying to control? Or do you just want to live on the dole and have taxpayers take care of you?
