The "New" Democratic Party

Obama's "Fundamental Transformation of America"

By Mark Alexander · Mar. 10, 2011
“I place economy among the first and most important virtues and public debt as the greatest dangers to be feared.” –Thomas Jefferson

Paraphrasing the esteemed classical liberal economist, Friedrich von Hayek, Future Freedom Foundation President Jacob Hornberger wrote, “There is no difference in principle, between the economic philosophy of Nazism, socialism, communism, and fascism and that of the American welfare state and regulated economy.” British historian, Dr. John Joseph Ray, noted further, “The BIG Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin’s Communism.”

Not only is there little distinction between Soviet and German socialist systems of the 20th century, but there is no consequential distinction between Marxist Socialism, Nationalist Socialism, or the most recent incarnation of this beast, Democratic Socialism. The objective of socialism by any name, is to replace Rule of Law with the rule of men, and the terminus of this transformation is tyranny.

The once-noble American Democrat Party is no more.

Vladimir Lenin wrote of the application of Marxism in Russia, “Marx said that the revolutionary dictatorship of the proletariat lies between capitalism and communism [Read: "socialism”]. He noted, “Political institutions are a superstructure resting on an economic foundation,” and that foundation must be destroyed in order to bring down those institutions.

Following the Marxis-Leninist models, in Adolf Hitler’s 1925 autobiography “Mein Kampf,” he wrote of his Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers' Party or NAZI), “The party should not become a constable of public opinion, but must dominate it. It must not become a servant of the masses, but their master.” On the the socialist state versus individual Liberty, he wrote, “The unity of a nation’s spirit and will are worth far more than the freedom of the spirit and will of an individual; and that the higher interests involved in the life of the whole must here set the limits and lay down the duties of the interests of the individual.”

Hitler’s regime was founded on his premise, “We are Socialists, we are enemies of the capitalistic economic system…and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” His Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels: “To be a socialist is to submit the I to the thou; socialism is sacrificing the individual to the whole.”

This is precisely the principle upon which Barack Hussein Obama and his contemporary cadres of “NeoComs” are following as they endeavor to raise a socialist government by undermining Free Enterprise. Indeed, Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America” is well underway.

Indeed, Democratic Socialism, like Nationalist Socialism, is nothing more than Marxist Socialism repackaged. It seeks a centrally planned economy directed by a dominant-party state that controls economic production by way of taxation, regulation and income redistribution. The success of Democrat Socialism depends upon supplanting Essential Liberty – the rights “endowed by our Creator” – primarily by refuting such endowment.

Noted Russian dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn, no stranger to the consequences of statism, wrote, “Socialism of any type leads to a total destruction of the human spirit.”

Socialist Evolution

Notably, regardless of the populist variant of Socialism, the consequences of of all three are tyranny. For those who are offended by the comparison of Democratic Socialism to Nationalist and Marxist Socialism, neither Stalin nor Hitler were guilty of exterminating “enemies of the state” until they had ascended to political positions affording consolidation of power in their respective Socialist states. The terminus of Socialism under any label, is tyranny. As Von Hayek observed, “Many who think themselves infinitely superior to the aberrations of Nazism, and sincerely hate all manifestations, work at the same time for ideals whose realization would lead straight to the abhorred tyranny.”

So what do these observations have to do with the current state of economic and political affairs in our great nation? Unfortunately, more than most Americans currently realize.

However discomforting this fact might be, there is abundant and irrefutable evidence that Barack Hussein Obama and his socialist cadre are endeavoring to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” with a debt bomb, the future shockwave of which, they surmise, will break the back of free enterprise. From the ashes of that cataclysm, Obama and his ilk envision restructuring our national economy as a Democrat Socialism State.

If you think such assertions are just rhetorical hyperbole, think harder.

As the direct result of Obama’s “economic recovery plan,” the central government [read “the American people”] are now burdened with trillion dollars deficits and a national Debt Bomb which dwarfs all previous deficit spending records. Given the economic consequences of continued growth in unfunded government spending, including most notably Obama’s signature ObamaCare legislation to nationalize healthcare, the only way to absorb that debt and avoid collapse, will be inflation.

More perilous for consumers is the potential for “stagflation,” a remnant from the Carter era that combines static or decreasing wages (stagnant economic growth) with increasing commodity prices (inflation).

As it stands now, Congress is borrowing 40 cents of every dollar it spends and our national debt is $14 trillion, which is about 97 percent of our nation’s gross domestic product (economic production) in 2010. “Deficit spending,” concluded Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors (1987-2006), “is simply a scheme for the hidden confiscation of wealth.” And that is precisely the prescription necessary to establish Democratic Socialism.

If the future shock of this debt bomb set by Obama and his Useful Idiots does not yet cause you considerable heartburn, consider the implication of these statistics. In 1960, wages and entitlement program distributions by the central government were 10 percent of total U.S wages and benefits. Over the next 40 years, that figure doubled to 20 percent. In just one decade since, that figure has increased to 35 percent, with the baby boomer wave yet to fully draw on government income and social services. This explains, in part, why federal spending has increased from $1.86 trillion to $3.82 in the first decade of the new millennium. Social welfare spending alone has increased by $514 billion in the first two years on Obama’s watch.

In 2010, central government spending in the U.S. was almost 41 percent of our nation’s GDP – by far the highest it has been since WWII. It will far exceed that over the next decade unless there is real reform – or an economic collapse. For the record, in the last decade of the Soviet Union’s existence before its collapse, the USSR’s central government spending peaked at 49 percent of GDP. When their economy collapsed, it was clear that socialism had failed, and they have attempted to move toward a free market system.

For a preview of Obama’s post-debt bomb America, look no further than Detroit.

If Obama’s debt bomb eventually causes the collapse of the U.S. economy, his Leftist successors will “never let a serious crisis to go to waste,” in the words of his former White House Chief. Rather than restore proven free market principles, they envision the full state implementation of Democratic Socialism, which they have been incrementally instating for a generation.

So what are the political consequences when the money runs out, when the lenders withdraw, when the smoke clears and the mirrors shatter from the debt bomb shockwave?

Some will settle for the institution of Democratic Socialism.

However none should underestimate the potential groundswell of protest across our nation, composed primarily of legions of Patriots fully capable of intervening on behalf of Rule of Law enshrined in our Constitution.

If those elected to national office, regardless of political affiliation, fail to abide by their oaths to Support and Defend our Constitution, particularly its limitations on the central government which have been disregarded for much of the last century, then we, the people, will restore the integrity of our Constitution, as is our right and obligation. Rest assured, there will come a time for choosing as outlined by Ronald Reagan, and that time must come.

One might recall that our Declaration of Independence and Constitution were the product of civil disobedience and revolution against a lesser form of tyranny than that imposed today. In the words of Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, “The tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

For those whom such notions offend, I offer these words of parting from Samuel Adams: “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom – go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!”

The over whelming majority of those who serve in this Nation's Armed Forces are conservative Christians. We will be ready to honor our oaths. As for my house and all the young warriors I personally have raised, we will support AND defend the Constitution with our lives. 3 attack pilots and one Green Beret (so far) REDCON 2.

I did not read all that Monty had to say, but what I did read of his I agree with.This Nation, it seems, is in the later stages of a Democratic/Republic style of government. This is also the later stages of Racism. The rich people are trying to treat the middle class people and the poor people like fourth class citizens (slaves). To Break a People down, you take away their Religious Freedom, you take away their Language, you take away their Earning Ability, you take away their Governing Ability, You Govern their Education, You control who and what protects them. This process reduces Strong, Healthy, Thinking Men/Women into mindless Idiots.We/I grew, up knowing that if we saw something wrong we could change it. I grew up in the 1940's,1950's 1960's and 1970's (those were my formative years). My generation was very Rebellious. We rebelled against Being Drafted, we rebelled against the Vietnam War (a war we did not believe in), we rebelled against a Government who tried not to recognize a person of color, We rebelled against the treatment poor people received. But it seems that now the Government is trying to punish us for governing ourselves or are we giving government to much power, are We as a people that afraid of the World...

The Liberals know Obama is socialist, they just don't want to own it yet. He got in on an agenda, and as he stated, he's only got about 80% of what he wanted, done. He wants the complete collapse of the US economy, and that coupled with the mess in Europe will collapse the world economy and force people to accept their New Word Order. I want to vomit when I hear BO talking about the struggling folks, as if he cared. He's a politicians politician, and lies more easily them I breathe. He should be impeached but he won't be; if Congress had any backbone, he couldn't have done all he has done. So the solution is resist him and his cronies until election 2012 and with God's help, vote him out! If we don't this country is toast.

What a fine essay. This is what I like about the Patriot Post: People and ideas are easy targets to bash;the far more difficult task is to offer a plan and the leadership to carry it out.Where is the leadership?

You people are idiots.
None of you understand the first thing about Democratic Socialism.
If you /did/ you would recognize that you are being /used/ by fearmongers, and that Democratic Socialism is superior to our Corporate Republic, because that is the only thing this country is now; a /Corporate Republic/.

When the day comes that you realize the 2012 election put a Democratic Socialist in the whitehouse, and he is now the dictator, don't decide you need to weep and wail about it to me. Blow your nose, tighten your belt and prepare for the second fight to save our country AGAIN, this time from the half breed you worshipped in 2012! And don't claim the devil was in the fine print! It was obvious what his plans were from the start! So Wake-Up, fool!

Unfortunately , none of the tree leaders displayed were socialists. Stalin was a totalitarian dictator who controlled the economy himself for a select few that he wanted. Hitler was in fact a far right dictator that allowed a free market to continue, but with only approved citizens. He removed socialists, communists, Jews, gypsies and homosexuals from the equation. He banned unions, encouraged traditional family values etc. Obama is very pro corporate elite and pro capitalist , it's just with a slightly different constituency than the Republicans. But the model for O is the same as what GW was doing.

Obama is disillusioned: he thinks all things revolve arond him. He is dangerously AGAINST TRADITIONAL AMERICA and our country's Christian values. Ideology, not our people, is his only focus. He's trying to destroy the Middle Class and HAS destroyed the Poor which the Left have been doing since the 60s.
These next four years look glum to those of us who don't want America to become Europe West. This gun battle is, unfortunately, just the beginning

I believe the future of true freedom is at stake.I see much trouble ahead. I think patriots will be fighting evil in the near future, maybe not in my generation, but maybe it will be so. We need to watch out for what the progressives in Goverment are up to next. We may have won a small gun bans today,but they will try again,and again, because that is the goal of socialism,to "sacrifice the individual for the whole". be ever watchful,get plugged in, we cannot sit with our heads in our hands never looking around any longer, get involved, many elections are coming in 2014. Partisipate.

During my career in the military, in order to get married, I didn't a 10day free leave that was not accounted like the "queers," or is it more palatable to call them gay-people. Actually I had to grab a few hours between shifts on my rotating shift job. I was not prviledged like the gays to have a full ten days. What takes them so long is they are trying to hunt down their gay lovers to tie the knot and can't find them because they are lying with someone else. Not a great way to start out a marriage kiddies.
