There’s a difference between Jeffersonian classical liberals of the Democratic Party and what we have now, a party full of progressives/socialists/Marxists. They are all about taxing the rich and addicting the poor to welfare and government handouts.
They want the middle class dependent on them.
They are about stealing our private property by claiming it is for the good of the collective. They are about controlling our health care; even withholding care if it is not cost-effective according to their rules. They want to regulate small business until they are broke.
President Barack Obama, Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennett, Colorado Legislatures Sal Pace and Angela Giron and Pueblo City Council members Ami Nawrocki, Leroy Garcia and Sandy Daff are not classical liberals; they are socialists openly embracing Marxist tenets. Many Democratic candidates running for federal, state and local offices across the country are now openly socialists/Marxists.
Those who embrace Jeffersonian classical liberalism in the Democratic Party must regain control and banish socialists/Marxists in their party to the dustbin of political history.
It is time for the Jeffersonian Democrats to have a “tea party” and take their party back from the hard left.
After this election cycle maybe they will heed the “voices in the wilderness” as we conservative libertarian “tea party” activists did. Continue voting for socialists/Marxists and soon all the wealth will be stripped from us and transferred to the government. Then what? There will be no people left with resources to run and operate the free market engine driving our prosperity for generations.
Be careful how you vote. Just because you are a government employee, union member or receive your income from a non-government organization depending on taxpayers’ subsidies and grants does not exempt you from the consequences of socialism.
You and I are not high enough up the food chain to be exempt from the pain and suffering that socialism/Marxism always inflicts. Only a few at the top benefit from collectivism. Ask any person who has endured Marxism/communism or any totalitarian government anywhere in the world and they will tell you the truth.
The choice is yours.
