This country was founded as a "Representative Republic" not a "democracy." Ah, but the air waves are filled with jubilant praise, self-righteous zeal and panting anticipation of the first woman president, or the first black president. Would the media be spinning this as a messianic birth right, because of race and gender, if these two were "Republican" candidates? --- Say, Clarence Thomas or, Condoleezza Rice? My opinion is, Socialist, Communist root philosophy are the qualifiers that make the two current democrat candidates "sacred cows" by our media and in today's socialist brain-washed mindset. Socialist-Communism has supplanted the formerly premier Christian philosophy on which this country was founded. The philosophy that has historically drug nations into poverty, dependency and dictatorship is the very philosophy that is now supposed to be the promise of hope for America as touted by these two candidates. But, of course they don't dare identify it as such.
Solomon penned for our benefit, by guidance of the Holy Spirit, so many years ago "there is nothing new under the Sun." But these slick politicians have beguiled many good people into drinking their "new age Kool-Aid" from an old secret recipe written by their most respected prophet, idle and philosopher, Karl Marx. These two democrat's solutions are the same solutions as those professed by Marx some 150 years ago. A majority of the democrat party has bought into the lie. And, our federally funded educational system is teaching that same lie to your kids today. Socialism, Marx professed, is the next step in the natural human evolutionary progressive chain; from capitalism, to Socialism, to Communism the ultimate utopia. Oh, but we can't dare identify our current transition by those names. Democrats promote it under patriotic names, phrases, and heart melting causes. Democrats appointed Judges to change the original meaning of our constitution, ever mixing in emotion provoking assertions that change "privileges" to "rights." They ban original constitutional rights for some in order to grant "privileges" to others, asserting them as "rights." They even challenge us on what the true meaning of is, is. They stole and wrapped all their deceit, hatred, and class envy in the appealing name "democracy."
Well, here are two philosophers from an era when "visionary revolutionists" first adopted Marx's philosophy, and one from a period when "democracy" preachers were first out-voted in early American history. These men understood the game, and what that false philosophy truly portended.
"Envy is the basis of Democracy." -- Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) Philosopher, educator Source: The Conquest of Happiness, VI, 1930
Democracy means simply the bludgeoning of the people by the people for the people." -- Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Source: The Soul of Man Under Socialism, 1891
"Democracy is, by the nature of it, a self-canceling business: and gives in the long run a net result of zero." -- Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) Scottish Philosopher and Author Source: Chartism, VI 1839
