Democratic Party is the party of rich elitists
An AMAC Editorial WASHINGTON, DC, — With all the noise they make, you’d think the members of the liberal left have already taken over the country, but the fact is conservatives still outnumber liberals, according to the pollsters at Gallup.
Gallup reports that its latest survey showed that in 2018, 35% of Americans on average considered themselves to be Conservatives and 26% saw themselves as Liberal. Conservatives had the same 9-point lead in 2017.
However, don’t take the progress of the Socialist movement in America lightly. As we reported not long ago, a majority of citizens who call themselves Democrats favor a socialist society rather than a nation built on America’s Constitutional principles and values.
Obviously, they had nothing to fear because the Democrats now control the House of Representatives. And, that does not bode well for the nation because it encourages misguided progressive efforts to turn the U.S. into a socialist state, notwithstanding the fact that it has been proven time and again that socialism does not work.
Dr. James D. Veltmeyer was born in Ecuador. He is a legal immigrant who recently published an article in the San Diego Times in which he pointed out that “Socialism does not uplift individuals; it impoverishes them. It does not raise living standards; it decimates them. It does not advance human potential but, as Franklin D. Roosevelt said, it subtly destroys the human spirit.”
Gee, Roosevelt was a Democrat, wasn’t he?
Since President Trump was elected, the GOP, to a large extent, has rededicated itself to its roots representing the needs and desires of America’s middle- class. The Democratic Party, on the other hand, has become the party of the rich and the elite, as The Hill put it.
In an analysis of the midterm election results published in The Hill, Hoover Institution research fellow Jeremy Carl concluded that “the Democrats control the commanding heights of American society.”
And, they seek to increase their power and their control by trading benefits for votes.
Bill DeBlasio, the socialist mayor of New York City, announced last week that the City will provide no cost health care for anyone who needs it, including an estimated 600,000 illegal aliens.
To make the socialist game plan clearer, I once again quote Dr. Veltmeyer who said that Schumer, Pelosi and the others seek “not to help a suffering population or rescue those escaping poverty or persecution abroad, but to use these unfortunate people in a cynical political power play to solidify their electoral position through creating a permanently dependent underclass willing to trade its votes for the promise of cradle to grave security.”
