There is no difference between socialism and liberalism in the democrat party today. The two ideologies have colluded together to from the National Socialist-Democrat Party. When asked what the difference was between the two political philosophies, the chairwoman of the Democrat National Committee couldn’t give an answer. The answer is they are one in the same.
This is why you have the socialist senator from Vermont, who is running for president in 2016, drawing over 100,000 people at his campaign stops. Bernie Sanders is not only drawing huge crowds, he seems to be gaining on Hillary Clinton in the newest Gallup Poll. The poll indicates that Sanders is outperforming Hillary in the favorability category. The more Sanders promotes collectivism the more people seem to like him. It seems people favor the idea of Socialism. The idea promises big government programs with giveaways that ultimately creates higher taxation rates on every single individual which correlates to the erosion of one’s own personal freedom. People don’t seem to understand that when they crave for free things that are provided to them by the government someone winds up paying for them in the long run. What the socialist politician won’t tell you is that the person paying for the free stuff in the long run is you. This is true whether it is, “free” education, housing, food stamps, internet or healthcare. Al Sharpton understood the concept of socialism when Obama was ramming Obamacare down the throats of all Americans whether they liked it or not. In 2009 Al Sharpton, who holds the record for visiting the White House, admits to what transforming America was all about.
Our American government was founded on the principles of limited government and free market capitalism because the founders understood from their own history how dangerous big tyrannical government was all about. They lived under the tyranny of the King of England and wanted no part of it. They brilliantly set up our new government with checks and balances afforded by the constitution that would insure the safety of the citizenry from an out-of-control big government apparatus. Those checks and balances the founders wisely set up over 239 years ago to safeguard our individual liberty from tyranny are being eroded by big centralized government. Today we are seeing our individual freedoms we once cherished vanish before our very eyes for the false hope of a collectivist ideology that fails to deliver wherever it is has been tried. It’s called socialism.
