Hillary Clinton’s latest excuse for losing the 2016 election is that she is a “capitalist” but that “41 percent of Democrats are socialists…”
Sadly, after her closest approach yet to truth, no journalist asked the obvious question: “Ms. Clinton, if you are a capitalist but your party is rapidly becoming socialist, why don’t you resign from the Democratic Party and urge your capitalist supporters to do likewise?”
In the Iowa caucuses, Clinton eked out a razor-thin 49.9% to 49.6% win over self-described socialist independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. His curmudgeonly candor made Sanders a pied piper for jobless Millennials still living rent-free in their parents’ basement, who liked the idea of government paying their way for a lifetime. They pay no taxes, so why not favor a life of Uncle Sam playing permanent Santa Claus?
Clinton said that no one seemed to listen when she described herself as favoring capitalism “with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability.” They did not hear her promising to raise taxes on corporations that are “disrupting our democracy” by increasing income inequality. They ignored her stated aim in a 2015 debate with Sanders to “save capitalism from itself.”
The very term “capitalist” was popularized by 19th Century socialist foes of private property such as Pierre-Joseph Proudhon and Karl Marx as a negative term used to argue against those who favor free markets and laissez-faire free enterprise.
Hillary Clinton is a “capitalist” as Marx used the term. She favors crony capitalism in which privileged elitists get rich via government favors. She rules a billion-dollar foundation that demanded kickbacks from those seeking favors from the Secretary of State….favors like a Russian company acquiring 20% of America’s precious uranium reserves while her foundation pocketed from Russian interests at least $145 Million. Her 2016 campaign may have laundered at least $84 Million in suspect campaign contributions.
Clinton echoed President Barack Obama’s statement to business that “You didn’t build that,” that companies owe their success and earnings to government, their de facto senior partner. Clinton and her fellow Progressives enforce their greedy grasp by “appropriate regulation and…accountability.” This is not our Framers’ goal of free enterprise.
The Communist Party USA until 1988 ran its own presidential candidates, using millions of dollars from Moscow. (President Obama’s CIA chief John O. Brennan admitted that he voted Communist in 1976; he is widely suspected of helping orchestrate the Deep State coup attempt against President Donald Trump, and is presently a pundit for MSNBC, a.k.a. Marxist-Socialist NBC.)
But from 1988 until the present, America’s Communist Party urged “voters to support the Democratic Party,” according to the website Marxists.org. So far as I know, no Democratic candidate sought such support, but neither has any Democrat publicly repudiated it – as journalists demand Republicans do whenever extremists endorse them. Is this collusion between the Democratic Party and political radicals once funded and commanded from Russia?
The larger point is that the Democratic Party has now moved so far to the left that even Communists eagerly support its ideology and candidates. Both parties come from the same godless collectivist movement of pseudo-scientific social engineering called Progressivism that advocates not progress towards freedom but a reactionary return to feudalism, elite rulers, and serfdom. The hijacked Democratic Party has become a radical socialist party unworthy of support by anyone who loves individual liberty.
Most of the Republican Party, meanwhile, thanks to President Trump, is moving away from the globalist, collectivist agenda of Progressivism that has ruled both parties since World War II. Mr. Trump is restoring both nationalism and America’s borders. He is returning America to its historic role as an experiment in liberty that unites enterprising, liberty-seeking citizens from around the world in the first “new nation,” a great model of free enterprise for Planet Earth to follow. Progressives in both parties eager to enslave us under global government are furious at Mr. Trump’s success.
