Are American Voters as Stupid As Democrats Bank On?
By JB Williams Monday, June 16, 2008
I’d love to be able to say that American voters are far too intelligent to ever fall for the socialist drivel currently peddled by the New Democrat Party, aka - the Democratic Socialists of America. But that would be a lie…
Sadly, many Americans are indeed stupid enough to overlook the reality that “universal health care” and “socialized medicine” is the same thing. They are indeed stupid enough to support socialism over economic freedom, a greater communal good over individual liberty, a nanny state over self-governance and even a completely unqualified half-black 100% Marxist for president over a man who paid the ultimate price for American freedom in a Vietnam prison camp.
Just how stupid is the average American voter today?
I could fill a book with all the ways the average American voter is ill-informed, misguided and foolish today. But there is no better example than the fact that most Americans think we are a democracy. We are a “republic” of “self-governed” individuals. Not a democracy held captive to the will of a simple majority, no matter how evil or ill-conceived that will might be.
If Lenin, Marx or Stalin had placed a gun to the head of every American voter and forced them to accept socialism (communism in its infancy), 99% of Americans would rather take the bullet. But once convinced that every election is an opportunity to shove their way to the public feeding trough, no gun is needed. They will gleefully vote for it, democratically.
That’s Democratic Socialism Stupid
For all you voters, who don’t have the time or good sense to study the facts before walking into a voting booth, let me lay it on the line in very specific terms.
The Democratic Socialists of America are happy to publicly tell you what you need to know about Barack Obama, today’s DNC and what is at stake in this and every other modern election cycle.
In a pdf document titled ”Questions and Answers from the Democratic Socialists of America” the organization answers the questions American voters should be asking in every election cycle. Here are the two most important answers…
What is Democratic Socialism?
“Democratic Socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few.”- “Democracy and socialism go hand in hand.”
Aren’t you a party that’s in competition with the Democratic Party for votes and support?
“No, we are not a separate party. Like our friends and allies in the feminist, labor, civil rights, religious, and community organizing movements, many of us have been active in the Democratic Party. We work with those movements to strengthen the party’s left wing, represented by the Congressional Progressive Caucus.”
Who is the Congressional Progressive Caucus?
Recognize any of these names?
Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT)
Hon. John Conyers (MI-14) Hon. Elijah Cummings (MD-7) Hon. Danny Davis (IL-7) Hon. Keith Ellison (MN-5)
Hon. Chaka Fattah (PA-2) Hon. Barney Frank (MA-4) Hon. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (IL-2) Hon. Sheila Jackson-Lee (TX-18)
Hon. Dennis Kucinich (OH-10) Hon. Jim McDermott (WA-7)
Hon. Jerrold Nadler (NY-8)
Hon. Charles Rangel (NY-15)
Hon. Bobby Rush (IL-1) Hon. Linda Sanchez (CA-47)
Hon. Maxine Waters (CA-35)
Hon. Henry Waxman (CA-30)
Hon. Robert Wexler (FL-19)
Did you know that you were voting for a congressional representative of the Democratic Socialists of America when you elected these members of congress?
This is only 18 of the 64 DSA representatives currently serving in the U.S. Congress. They are all recognizable leaders in today’s Democrat Party. You know their faces. They sit on top congressional committees and form American policy. Did you know they were socialists before reading this column? There are at least 48 more currently serving in congress.
The DSA Congressional Progressive Caucus names as its leadership, Nancy Pelosi - Speaker of the House, Steny Hoyer - Office of the Majority Leader, Jim Clyburn - Office of the Majority Whip, and Rahm Emanuel - Democratic Caucus Chair.
How stupid is the average American voter?
Congressional Republicans just stopped Democratic Socialists from raising gas prices while gas prices are at an all time high and Democrat politicians with the help of their lame-stream leftist press are whipping average voters into frenzy as if Republicans were the ones trying to raise gas prices.
Let’s see just how stupid the average voter really is… Pick your business… oil companies aside for a moment.
Intelligence TEST: Let’s pretend you are in the business of selling fishing boats to average voters for a living. And your state government arbitrarily decides that you are making too much profit on your boats one day, walks into your office and places a $500. per boat “windfall profit tax” on each boat you sell.
A.) Close your business as all your competitors are now cheaper
B.) Lay off only a few employees to offset your higher cost of delivery
C.) Absorb it by agreeing to make less per boat
D.) Pass the $500 surcharge on to the consumer via higher retail prices
In case you have never had to figure out how to turn a profit in business before, let me tell you, the cost of fishing boats just increased by at least $500 per unit at the consumer level. You can bet your last dollar that (c) won’t be the answer.
Now, apply the same question to corporate “windfall profit taxes” on oil companies…stupid!
It’s Only Half Your Fault
Don’t feel so bad. You are stupid by design. Socialists have worked hard for almost a hundred years to make American’s stupid enough to vote for socialism. They control the NEA and every other labor union. They founded and control the ACLU. They work through an endless list of PAC, 527 and even religious or racial organizations like the NAACP and combined, they use millions in worker union dues to advance socialism via the democratic process.
They own and run the six international corporations that own or control more than 80% of what we call “the media,” TV, Movie, Newspaper, Cable Network, book and magazine publishing houses and much more. They are extremely well organized, very well funded, extremely active politically and patient.
Even international billionaire socialists like George Soros have mastered the art of using capitalism to promote socialism, going so far as to bankrupt the currencies of democratic societies, forcing them to expend their national boundaries and adopt new continental currencies to survive.
But it is half your fault…
As Thomas Jefferson pointed out so well, “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”
America is the sum of its people and their belief system. If they believe in personal freedom and individual liberty, they will demand no less and politicians will have no power over those demands.
But if they instead demand Socialism by democratic process, gifts from the treasury, paid for with the freedom and liberty of others, politicians will have no power over those demands either.
Good, bad or indifferent, America is exactly what we make of her. At all moments in history, including this one, we have the government we have chosen.
The bad news is - everything we see is our fault.
The good news is – those who had the power to wreck it, also have the power to fix it.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot… The Democratic Socialists of America support Barack Hussein Obama for president…. Now that you know, do you?
