“Democracy seeks equality in
liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.” So said Alexis
Ironically, Democrats have
never been big supporters of equality in liberty, despite the fact that
Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson enshrined “all men are created equal” in
the Declaration of Independence. Slavery and the Civil War proved that
early on, beyond a shadow of a doubt. Since then, Democrats have only drifted
farther away from the founders’ concepts of freedom based on natural law and
inalienable rights…and closer to Socialists’/Marxists’/Leninists’/Communisms’ unstated
desire to achieve equity by having everyone be equally miserable, impoverished,
Okay, this may not be the desire,
unstated or otherwise, for some young, naïve, ignorant types. It is however, always
the reality. And it doesn’t matter who is in charge, the system simply
cannot work because it is completely at odds with human nature.
Most of today’s Democrats, moving
inexorably towards all-out Communism, economically and culturally, are either
too stupid to internalize this…or too power hungry to care. After all, if you
can successfully exploit the ignorance of others for your own gain, your own
power, the ends justify the means, right?
This explains why they will lie,
cheat, threaten, silence, gaslight……and attempt to imprison their
political opponents, even as they speak of preserving “our democracy.”
Somewhere Stalin smiles.
