"Democratic Socialism"

Too bad we have to go to the Canada Free Press for an open-eyed look at the current mess in this country.

Some salient points:
According to the IRS, as of the 2006 federal tax reports, 97.01% of all federal taxes collected are paid by the top 50% of income earners in the nation. The bottom 50% of income earners pay only 2.99% of the federal tax haul, most paying nothing at all or getting “tax refunds” for taxes they never paid to begin with.

Until 2006, the majority of voters were taxpayers. As of 2006, and for the foreseeable future, the majority of voters are thieves in search of access to other people’s money and property. That is what decided the 2006 and 2008 elections and what will keep leftist progressives in national power for the next generation or two.

46% of Americans voted against the new “progressive” rush into unbridled secular socialism in the 2008 election. Had Republicans not governed like Democrats since 2004, and had they put forth a serious presidential candidate in 2008, this number would have been much larger.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi immediately rewrote House debate rules that had provided proper legislative checks and balances for more than a hundred years. The first piece of House legislation passed without a single Republican vote, opposed by even a dozen moderate Democrats.

They will pursue and pass some version of gun control, which will only take weapons out of the hands of honest citizens, who are only a threat to those who threaten them.
". . . who are only a threat to those who threaten them." Think about that one, real good.

If you remove all of the voting blocs that are attempting to vote themselves gifts from the public trough, Democrats couldn’t garner more than 20% public support in any national election today. But add all of those groups together and offer to buy their loyalty with the property of others and you have yourself a political juggernaut that will win political power for the next generation or two.
Read the whole thing.

Hello just reading your blog on democratic socialism and I am reminded of a quote from Margaret Thatcher who Said "Socialist Governments Traditionally Do Make A Financial mess. They Always Run Out Of The Other Peoples Money."

I just read yet another disturbing article on gun control in Illinois, and in Congress:

Fixed your link.

"...and had they put forth a serious presidential candidate in 2008, this number would have been much larger."

No kidding! Why can't the Republican Party put forward a Conservative instead of a RINO like the "Maverick John McCain"? If the Republican Party ever wants to see a return to power, they must get serious about who they will represent.

Sorry about the link, Hecate, but I don't know how to do what you do with it. I am barely literate in computer-speak! ;)

No problem at all! That's good stuff and I just wanted to make sure people could find it easily.
