The basis for voting Democrat.


1.The desire to have others support and cosset them from cradle to grave may be the strongest motivation for Leftists. It sure beats working for what you have. A corollary of the search is that someone else is preventing you from succeeding, getting all that you deserve, and those who stand in your way must be punished….from ridicule, censorship, right up to and including murder.

The above is at the heart of the views of Fascists, Nazis, Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, Communists, Democrats.



2. On this date, May 27th, we observe one of the earliest Democrats….Liberals….socialists.

“François-Noël Babeuf, byname Gracchus Babeuf, (born November 23, 1760, Saint-Quentin, France—died May 27, 1797, Vendôme), early political journalist and agitator in Revolutionary France whose tactical strategies provided a model for left-wing movements of the 19th century and who was called Gracchus for the resemblance of his proposed agrarian reforms to those of the 2nd-century-BC Roman statesman of that name.”

3. A half-century before Karl Marx published the Communist Manifesto, there was Gracchus Babeuf’s Plebeian Manifesto, which was later renamed the Manifesto of the Equals. Babeuf’s early (1796) work has been described as socialist, anarchist, and communist, and has had an enormous impact. He wrote: “The French Revolution was nothing but a precursor of another revolution, on which will be bigger, more solemn, and which will be the last…We reach for something more sublime and more just: the common good or the community of goods! Nor more individual property in land: the land belongs to no one. We demand, we want, the common enjoyment of the fruits of the land: the fruits belong to all.” Here, then, are the major themes of socialist theory. It takes very little interpolation to find that opponents profit at the expense of the environment, and conditions of inequality in society.



4. For Babeuf, socialism would distribute prosperity across the entire population, as it would “[have] us eat four good meals a day, [dress} us most elegantly, and also [provide] those of us who are fathers of families with charming houses worth a thousand louis each.”



5. Oscar Wilde: “Under socialism…there will be no people living in fetid dens and fetid rags, and bringing up unhealthy, hunger pinched children in the midst of impossible and absolutely repulsive surroundings…Each member of society will share in the general prosperity and happiness of the society…”
From a speech by Rev. Robert A. Sirico, President, Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty.
Delivered at Hillsdale College, October 27, 2006


A vote for a Democrat means you really believe that there is a 'Big Rock Candy Mountain.'

6. Marxism rested on the assumption that the condition of the working classes would grow ever worse under capitalism, that there would be but two classes: one small and rich, the other vast and increasingly impoverished, and revolution would be the anodyne that would result in the “common good.”
But by the early 20th century, it was clear that this assumption was completely wrong! Under capitalism, the standard of living of all was improving: prices falling, incomes rising, health and sanitation improving, lengthening of life spans, diets becoming more varied, the new jobs created in industry paid more than most could make in agriculture, housing improved, and middle class industrialists and business owners displaced nobility and gentry as heroes.



7. These economic advances continued throughout the period of the rise of socialist ideology. The poor didn’t get poorer because the rich were getting richer (a familiar socialist refrain even today) as the socialists had predicted. Instead, the underlying reality was that capitalism had created the first societies in history in which living standards were rising in all sectors of society.

Sirico, Op.Cit.

The same way y’all invented the woke shit?

I'll give you the same challenge I've given your fellow Nazis;

Show us any post by any conservative on this boards mentioning, referencing, or supporting QAnon prior to September 2020.

Like your fellow Reich mates, you'll slink back to your gutter now - because prior to CNN pimping this shit, no one had ever hear of Q.

The Reich press created it as a focal point for you Nazis to focus your hatred on. Fact, and we ALL know it.

From Babeuf to the end of the Soviet Union.....from the alpha to the omega of the socialist experiment....or, to what should have been its conclusion.

. In September of 1991, the President of Russia, Boris Yeltsin, was asked about the history and future of Communism:

“One of their more dramatic responses came to a question by Los Angeles actor Ben Stein, who asked whether the two leaders believed any country should live under communism.

Yeltsin answered first: "This experiment which was conducted on our soil was a tragedy for our people and it was too bad that it happened on our territory. It would have been better if the experiment had happened in some small country, to make it clear that it was a Utopian idea, although a beautiful idea."

Gorbachev said history has shown that "that model has failed which was brought about in our country. And I believe that this is a lesson not only for our people but for all peoples.”

GORBACHEV, YELTSIN SAY COMMUNISM FAILED USSRY




Yet, to this very day, Non compos mentis voters still vote for our ersatz socialist party, and seek that Big Rock Candy Mountain.

This is the usual Right wing wank shit...

They try and tell people what they believe...

The choice is simple
Do you want a society that believes in looking after the most vulnerable in there society
OR
A leadership that allowed there supporters to chant "Let them die" (when discussing HEalthcare)

A Organisation that wants to be inclusive and recognise every ones (Citizens and NonCitizens) contribution to American Society
OR
An Organisation which promotes and pushes a group who spread lies and false infomration designed to make America weaker and more divided...


This doesn't mean Democrats are in any way perfect but compare to GOP/Trumpsters they streets ahead...

There is RW people here that have lost their objective reasoning... Foaming at the mouth vile without reason...

Just to show... Germany in 2019 was better on nearly every economic metric and they have leadership that are to the left of Democrats... (The right in Germany are to the left of Democrats)
How does this make sense to these Right Wing supporters?

"The GOP had nothing to do with the insurrection" is a BIG LIE!
"America First!" is a BIG lie.
"The GOP is not racist" is a big lie
"The GOP is good for the economy" is a big lie.
"Immigration destroys America" is a big lie.
"Covid is a hoax" is a lethal big lie
"Only I can fix it" and 70,000 other lies are a big lie.
"Trickle down economics will work this time" is a big lie.
"Democrats are Communists" is a big lie.
"We don't need a national health plan" is a big lie.
"The GOP is not involved in voter suppression" is a big lie.
"The US does not have systemic racism" is a big lie.
"Tax Cuts for the rich are good for everybody." is a big lie
"Stop the Steal" is a big lie.
"Can't afford to help Americans" is a big lie.
"Weak government is good government" is a big lie
"GOP can win again with Trumpism" is a big lie.
"Our GOP audit is not a hacking scam" is a big lie
The BIG TRUTH -
