Who’s Your Favorite
Socialist Candidate for the 2008 Presidency?
Washington, DC – Who's
your favorite socialist candidate for the Presidency in 2008?
Socialism is defined as the state
controlling the means of production; free market
capitalism is defined as the individual controlling the means of
production (under objective law with no special interest legislation).
Here's the entire political spectrum:
- On the far left is
total govt: socialism, fascism, communism, and military dictatorships.
- On the far right is
NO govt, total anarchy.
- In the middle is a
limited govt based upon a priori
individual rights (not the tyranny of majority rule "democracy".) This
middle position is most of the original U.S. Constitution and Bill of
Where is the U.S.
currently in this political spectrum? In between (1) and (3) the far left
and the middle, which is a Huge Welfare State on its way to Big Brother
Socialism with Radio Frequency National Identity (RFID) Cards.
Based upon the
above definitions and political spectrum, where do each of the current early
candidates for the 2008 Presidency stand?
Senator Hillary "It
Takes a Village" (hint-hint, it takes a state collective) Clinton
is an out-and-out socialist. She wants socialist health care, socialist
education, and socialist ad infinitum.
Hussein Obama, who attended
Catholic and Islamic schools in Indonesia, and whose parents were radical
Muslims, is steeped in collectivist philosophy from both major religions.
He, too, is an out-and-out socialist advocating socialist health care and
govt intervention into every aspect of your life.
is your standard left liberal welfare statist who continually rants on and
on about Karl Marx's Economic Fairy Tales about the rich Bourgeoisie vs. the
poor downtrodden Proletariat.
Senator John McCain
waffles back and forth between socialism and the welfare state. His
political campaign finance legislation violates the First Amendment for Free
Speech and did exactly the opposite of his stated intention: control
political spending by the "fat cats." Five years in a Vietnam prison camp
did not imbue McCain with principles of basic free market economics or
individual rights philosophy. He paid his dues and we owe him, but not as
President or Commander-in-Chief of the United States.
Gov Mitt Romney
just implemented socialist health care in Taxachussetts last year, as did CA
Governator Arnie Alphabet. Both plans violate the fed's ERISA statutes that
allow private companies to standardize health and other HR benefits across
all 50 states. Romney is a GOP socialist.
Ex NY City Mayor
Rudy Giuliani is a Welfare
Statist who co-authored (with Newt Gingrich) a ridiculous socialist proposal
(more like a military dictatorship) -- modeled after FDR's socialist Job
Corps program during our Great Depression -- for an Iraqi Job Corps program
to be administered by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, who, by the way, are
under investigation in at least 93 cases of waste, fraud, and abuse in the
expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars to local and U.S. contractors
in Iraq. Giuliani is simply another GOP socialst.
So, who else can we
How about U.S.
House Representative from Texas, Ron Paul, who is a staunch free market
capitalist, proponent of individual rights (both social and economic because
he understands the connection), and COMPLETELY understands how the central
bankers of the private Federal Reserve have dumped the gold standard and
continually manipulate our fiat monetary system.
Paul understands the need for a strong military defense system, he does not
agree with Bush's current Iraq war methodology or attempted socialist
"democratization" of Iraqi society. Ron Paul is running on the GOP ticket
for Presidency in 2008 and, if you value freedom, you would be wise to vote
for him. -- FM Duck
