Socialism In Our Time

Liberal-progressive-socialists like President Obama are obviously not as much concerned about glacial economic recovery as are the bulk of our citizenry.  Obama’s attention is riveted on broadening every possible means of regulating every person’s every action, every day.

Keeping everybody, to the maximum extent, on some form of welfare support ands therefore beholden to Washington, means that the aim of socialism - control of all aspects of the economy - is being realized at an accelerating rate. 

ObamaCare is but one of the many Democrat Socialist Party’s policy initiatives aimed at total collectivization and obliteration of the individual rights intended for protection by the Bill of Rights.

Political Morality?

Liberal-progressives deny the existence of moral principles, but don’t hesitate to employ moral rhetoric to cudgel those who disagree with them.

Liberal-Progressive Oppression

Add attempts to criminalize opinions expressed by religious leaders to the list of government oppression that egregiously includes the IRS’s working to put out of business any opinion group that opposes Obama’s reckless, anti-Constitutional socialization of our nation.


SERMONIZING POLS
They choose political correctness over religious freedom.

What Motivates Liberal-Progressivism?

The Case Against Liberal Compassion


The writer probes the sentiments driving individual liberal-progessives’ knee-jerk reactions. 

In politics, however, sentiments are less admirable (if we can consider blind adherence to liberal-progressivism admirable at all).  Politicians supporting the welfare state, on both sides of the political aisle, are merely purchasing votes or rewarding financial supporters.  Politicians who support the welfare state for any other reason are either incompetent or engaging in self-delusion.

Our Divisive, Racist President

Comparing American Cops with Islamic Terrorists
With his U.N. speech, President Obama sinks to a shameful new low.

Attorney General Eric Holder having announced his pending resignation, to carry on the administration’s blatantly anti-white racism, President Obama’s best appointment would be Al Sharpton, a self-promoting liar with many years’ experience fomenting riots, looting, and black mob attacks on policemen.

Authentic Liberal-Progressivism

New York City, the nation’s largest, overwhelmingly socialistic city, shows the way.  It’s all about class warfare.

Understanding Why Our Enemy Is Our Enemy

Frank Madarasz alerted me to this article:

The Question of Islamic Reform

Neither wishful thinking nor politically-correct suppression of free speech in the public square will alter the reality of the brutal aims and methods of Islamic Jihad.

Liberal-Progressive Knee-Jerk Blind Spots

Reader Robert Stapler examines some of liberal-progressives’ off-the-shelf, canned responses and preconceptions which have little, if any, congruence with reality.
