All information in this article is only the opinion of the author and for educational purposes only. It is not for the diagnosis, treatment, prescription or cure of any disease or health condition.
Most news outlets are not reporting the truth about the ideas of the Democratic Party candidates for president of the United States, so we will help out.
Some people will think that this section of the article is too negative. We believe it may be too positive. We think the truth is that things may be much worse than we are about to describe.
Utopian socialism. All of The Democratic Party candidates are proposing free health care, free child care, and some propose free college education, free housing for everyone, guaranteed jobs, a guaranteed income, and more.
This is a nineteenth century idea called utopian socialism. It sounds wonderful and it gets people elected to office.
The problem is it is very arrogant and it does not work. It has been tried many times. One problem is that when given these government “benefits”, people become lazy. The nation also goes bankrupt providing the benefits.
To remedy this, the nation then often starts a war with its neighbors to steal their wealth to continue the system.
Also, the leaders of these nations do not tolerate dissent. Those who disagree with the government policies must be silenced because they are “interfering”. As a result, basic rights to life, liberty, justice and due process of law are done away with and imprisonment, torture, rape and murder are always eventually needed to “maintain order”. This is not my opinion. It is the pattern of utopian socialism.
THE ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS, RATHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH
You need to know that telling the truth is not a core value of today’s political liberals, progressives, socialists and communists.
This is not meant as a criticism. It is just a fact about them. When questioned closely, they admit it. They have a different moral code.
The ends justify the means. Telling the truth is a Biblical value. The Democratic Party candidates and similar groups around the world have a different moral system called moral relativism. The basis for it is the phrase from the writing of Karl Marx that “the end justifies the means”.
In practice, this means that corruption, cheating, lying, stealing, rape, and murder are perfectly okay if they promote their cause. Fortunately, most people do not live by this creed. You must realize, however, that this is the moral system of the Democratic Party candidates or you will be fooled by their rhetoric!
Furthering socialism. In their view, the purpose of life is to further the socialist “revolution”.
However, socialism, which means government control, is nothing more than a return to authoritarian dictatorship as seen today in communist China, North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, and a number of other nations. Do not be fooled by high-sounding rhetoric, which – remember – does not need to be truthful. It just needs to be effective to get elected.
THE ESSENCE OF THE 2020 ELECTION
This election, and similar ones around the world, is not so much between political parties or “left and right”. It is a contest between two moral value systems. Voters will decide if they prefer:
- The Biblical value system. This includes the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule, OR
- The older, authoritarian moral code called moral relativism. According to this code of behavior, telling the truth does not matter. What matters is gaining and holding power.
Utopian socialism, compared to a free enterprise economy and republican form of government, is extremely arrogant. The socialists presume that an elite group knows what is best for everyone. Just elect them and they will fix everything.
In a representative republic, the people decide what products they want, how to spend the nation’s money, and many policies of the nation. This is “cumbersome” because it involves discussion and debate. However, it works much better than rule by an elite group such as in communist China today, North Korea, Iran and other socialist nations.
Another problem with utopian socialism is that to implement it the leaders must destroy the existing free enterprise economic system. They must also destroy the Biblical value system that has built the Western nations and brought great prosperity and freedom to the people of the Western nations.
For example, the Democratic Party candidates want to destroy the United States as a world power. For this reason, they are very likely to put into effect policies to ruin the economy, steal the wealth of the people, and further ruin the health and morals of the people.
Now let us discuss some of the candidate’s proposed policies. All of the following are the truth. We have not “made up” anything.
Abortion and infanticide. All the candidates want to legalize the murder of unborn children at any stage of pregnancy. Some also want to legalize the murder of babies after birth if the mother desires it. This is called infanticide and is currently the law in the state of New York, USA.
The candidates believe in a “right” to health care and college, but they oppose more basic rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Homosexual marriage. All the candidates favor homosexual marriage. We find that homosexuals are ill, and many of them change back to heterosexuals when they balance their body chemistry with a development program. For details, read Homosexuality.
Health care. All the Democratic Party candidates want to “free” health care for everyone in America.
WHAT ARE “FREE” SERVICES?
The word free as the candidates use the word means that the money to pay for the service will be confiscated or taken by force from the people.
No services are really ‘free’ because someone has to build the buildings, buy the equipment, and provide the services.
For example, right now health care is voluntary – one pays for what one wants. The Democratic Party candidates don’t want people to have this choice – whether in health care, education, child care, or other areas of life.
The candidates say the voluntary system is “unfair” because everyone is not treated exactly the same. (In reality, in all socialist nations, the rulers get the best care – much better than the rest of the people.)
Private health care. Most of the candidates want to completely end all private health care. No one would be able to just go to a physician, nutritionist, chiropractor or other health care person when ill.
Instead, all health care workers would be employees the government. They would do only what the government tells them to do. This includes the type of treatments, kinds of medicines, and the amount of care.
Anyone offering private or alternative care would be fined or imprisoned. Imprisonment for socialists includes beatings, rapes, drugging and possibly death. This is the only way they can control people’s behavior.
Anyone over the age of about 60 would be considered “less worthy” and would receive less care. Those who oppose the government’s programs would also receive poorer quality care, or perhaps no care at all. When closely questioned, the Democratic Party candidates all admit this is part of their scheme.
Education. The candidates want to outlaw all private schools, religious schools and other private education in America. All children would be required to attend government-run schools, probably starting around age 3.
Anyone caught teaching their child at home would be put in jail. Their children would be taken away from them. When closely questioned, the candidates admit this is their plan, since otherwise it won’t work. People will do as they wish, unless forced by the government to send their children to the government schools.
Subject matter. Education would center around going along with the government authorities and not questioning or opposing these dictates. Anyone who does not go along would be declared mentally ill and forced to attend special classes to change their attitudes.
This methodology is standard in socialist nations such as the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), National Socialism (or Nazi) Germany, and present-day Red China, North Korea and Iran.
If persuasion does not work, those opposing the government schooling would be forced to go to special “hospitals”, really prisons, where they would be drugged and beaten, if needed, to make them go along.
This is the truth of their plans. When questions closely, all the candidates admit that this would need to be their policy in order for society to run smoothly.
College. Most of the candidates want to provide “free” college education. This would be closely supervised by the government to make sure it is thoroughly controlled and the content censored for “acceptability” and “relevance”. This is already the case America and elsewhere that the government supports higher education.
“Relevance” and “tolerance” are code words for lying, distorting history, and teaching communist and socialistic values. When closely questioned, the candidates admit this is their plan.
Information. The Democratic candidates also favor control of information on the internet, which they call “net neutrality”. It is pure censorship. It is already in place on Google and other search engines. They oppose the free flow of information in the media and elsewhere. They consider freedom of speech and freedom of the press unnecessary and dangerous.
Guns. The Democrdatic candidates all favor “gun control”. This is a code word that means taking the guns away from the law-abiding people so that only the rulers have them. Criminals will also have them, because they don’t follow the law.
Many of the candidates swore an oath to uphold the US Constitution, which includes the right to have and bear arms. However, these candidates flagrantly and openly violate their oath – and should be removed from office for doing so.
Day care. The Democratic Party candidates all want “free” government-sponsored child care. At the age of about 6 months or perhaps one year, all babies of working mothers would be forced to spend their day in a government-run child care center.
Anyone caught offering private daycare would be fined and possibly imprisoned.
At these government daycare centers, the babies would be fed what the government deems best (not breast milk because their mothers would not be present).
The babies would also receive their vaccinations, drugs and anything else the government wishes to do to the babies. Upon close questioning, all of the Democratic candidates admit that this is what they want.
Goods and services. The candidates eventually want to control the manufacture, pricing, availability and distribution of ALL goods and services in society. This is an important aspect of socialism, which means government control of the economy.
The free enterprise economic system or capitalism, which means letting people run their own businesses, they see as wasteful and too competitive. They also view it as mean-spirited because some businesses succeed while others fail.
Anyone who sets up a private business would be fined or imprisoned as an “enemy of the people”.
A government-controlled economy, also called a command-and-control economy, does not work well. Every nation that has tried it in history has become impoverished. To provide for their people, such nations usually go to war to steal the wealth of other nations.
However, this is the plan of the Democratic Party candidates. Upon close questioning, they all admit it. Some of them know it does not work well, and they don’t care. What matters is that they would be in charge.
Jobs. Some of the candidates advocate giving people guaranteed jobs and a guaranteed income. They don’t say how they will do this, however, perhaps because it is not possible unless the jobs are phony make-work.
Money. All the candidates plan on spending trillions of dollars on all the above programs. They say we just need a few more taxes to do this, and they will only tax the rich people. However, in all socialist nations, such as in Europe and Canada, everyone pays high taxes and the governments are still bankrupt.
The candidates oppose wealth in the hands of the people, except for the rulers. Among the candidates are several billionaires, not just Mr. Bloomberg who has about 65 billion dollars. All of them plan to take much more of ALL the people’s wealth through taxes, caps on salaries, and other methods.
Religion. All the candidates oppose Biblical values, which they consider outdated, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, and so on. In fact, what they really oppose is that religion is an alternative power center, and the candidates want the government to be the only power in people’s lives.
Truth. Just a reminder: Truth is not a core value of today’s Democratic Party candidates, or of socialists and communists around the world. Please remember that they live by the teaching of Karl Marx that the ends justify the means.
Lying is a method of getting elected, so it is okay in their eyes. This means that you are foolish if you believe what they say.
The other political party is not perfect, but their values are much better!
Mr. Trump’s theme is to restore America. Whatever bad things you have to say about him, he loves the United States as it was set up and what she stands for – the rule of law, limited government so that the people can have the power, and the US and State Constitutions to preserve these rights.
China. Mr. Trump is restoring America in many ways. For example, he is bringing our factories back to the USA from Communist China.
Just to clarify - there is no “trade war”. The socialist Chinese cheat financially and lure our factories to their nation in order to destroy our nation. That is what is going on in Communist China. Meanwhile, many of their people are virtually slaves of the government.
Mr. Trump understands this well and won’t stand for it. If it means imposing tariffs, so be it. The Chinese buy very little from the United States, so they can’t retaliate in the same way. America will lose some food contracts with the Chinese, and that is about all we are losing.
Some say tariffs lead to war. This can be true. However, the Chinese are already at war with us. It is just a hidden war for our money and our jobs. There is also a more serious issue. We finance their concentration camps and their military. To read about it, read How And Why The United States Must Stop Financing China’s Bad Actors.
Mr. Trump also won’t stand for unfair trade agreements with other nations that have been the rule, not the exception, for years. He has renegotiated many of these treaties to be fair to the USA.
Mr. Trump also got us out of the insane agreement with Iran that permitted Iran to develop nuclear weapons that we helped pay for! As a result, the world is a much safer place with Mr. Trump in charge.
Mr. Trump also got us out of the Paris Climate Accord that Mr. Obama never even sent to our Congress for ratification, as the law requires. That treaty is designed to harm America and does not save the world. For details, read Climate Change – What To Do.
At home in America,
- The US economy is much stronger.
- There is less illegal immigration.
- The Supreme Court is in much better shape because Mr. Trump has appointed actual legal scholars who understand the U.S. Constitution, unlike the justices appointed by previous presidents.
- A number of insane regulations have been removed that stifled the economy. For example, there is nothing wrong with burning coal, as long as the power plants have scrubbers that remove the mercury and other pollutants from the coal ash. We are not killing the earth and carbon dioxide is not a poison. It is one of the most essential chemicals on earth. For details, read the Climate Change and Diversity articles.
Complaints about Mr. Trump
Size of government. Mr. Trump bothers some conservatives because so far he has not reduced the size of government. He says he will do this in his second term and we will see.
Obamacare. He has also not repealed or declared null and void the Affordable Care Act of 2010, better known as Obamacare. This bothers the author a lot because it is turning our hospitals into prisons and causing other problems. For details, read Hospital Horror.
Big Pharma. So far, Mr. Trump has not cracked down on the medical drug lobby that is bankrupting and sickening Americans with their toxic products.
Vaccines. These are maiming thousands of children each year and the truth is being hidden from the American people. Google is censoring anti-vaccination website, including this one, and no one lifts a finger against this illegal practice.
It is a case of bad law. The vaccine makers are exempt from liability for the damage done by their products. This law needs to be repealed at once. This also bothers this author no end!
Regenerative or sustainable agriculture. It is time to end chemical farming that is poisoning the land, the wildlife and the people. Once again, it is a case of bad regulations that favor the big chemical growers at the expense of the smaller and the organic farmer. Trade deals also favor the big chemical farmers, also called ‘agribusiness’.
More bad regulations come from the US Department of Agriculture, another corrupt “deep state” agency. They have watered down the organic food standards, again to favor the big growers. This hurts those who are really producing excellent food. For details, read Organic Agriculture.
Other corrupt rules prevent ranchers in our area from selling amazingly wonderful heirloom beef across state lines because the local slaughtering facility is not “USDA-approved”. It is a completely corrupt regulation that harms the organic and regenerative farmers and ranchers.
Mr. Trump is losing badly in this area and there is no need for it. Once again, it is just a matter of getting rid of bad regulations. Take the initiative and get rid of them and Mr. Trump would be the hero of the organic food movement, a vital movement around the world.
Alternative energy. Here again Republicans lose badly. Republicans need to endorse water as a fuel (Joe cells) and the newer ether energy, also called ‘free energy’ or Tesla technology. It is at least 100 years old but suppressed by the world socialists.
A quick and easy way to cut down on pollution is to get rid of the insane and very corrupt regulations on automobiles that prevent us all from driving hybrid cars and water-powered cars.
For example, a 1956 issue of Mother Earth News had plans to build a hybrid car that got 100 miles to a gallon of gas. That is possible, but is being stopped by oil-company-sponsored regulations that need to go. The inventor of the GEET (Global Environmental Energy Technology) system for powering automobiles was arrested for driving his car with an “illegal drive system”, though it is safe and far cleaner than standard technology. Just more bad regulations. For details, read The Regulatory State.
Nuclear power. Nuclear power generation is an environmental nightmare, as was shown recently in the Fukushima reactor meltdown. The Republicans sound like complete idiots on this issue.
They need to acknowledge the truth, abandon their incorrect position on nuclear power, and own the ‘save the earth’ movement. We don’t need nuclear power, which contaminates the earth for thousands of years and makes nuclear material more easily available to terrorists. For details, read Nuclear Power And Alternatives.
Mr. Trump can and should take this issue away from the Democrats, who are proposing a massive new spending plan they call the “green new deal”. Their plan would bankrupt the nation, (which is part of the real intent since they hate this nation), but it sounds good and it claims to stop chemical pollution in agriculture.
On balance, Mr. Trump is far better than the Democrats and socialists who would increase the role of corrupt government in health care and everything else.
Socialism. The Democrats all tend to be socialists, whether or not they admit it. Socialism, which means government tyranny, does not work well. It has been tried many times in many nations.
One the most recent experiments with it was National Socialism in Germany, better known as the Nazi Party of Adolf Hitler. For details, read Socialism.
The Democrats hate the principles of individual liberty and sovereignty of the people. This is vital to recall. They are also liars, so when they say they will clean up the environment and solve climate change, you should not believe them.
They also are trying to remove all traces of the religious founding of America, which is the truth but has been removed from most school and college textbooks. Religion, which is the spiritual life of the people, is very important.
They also want to ban ownership of weapons of self-defense in the hands of law abiding Citizens. This is not only a violation of the U.S. and State Constitutions. It is the mark of thugs and dictators. They do not like any opposition from the people they rule.
The truth is that crime is decreasing in America as more people buy guns. Also, more than 22 million Americans now have permits to carry concealed weapons.
The fastest-growing group of gun owners are women. Always remember that gun rights are women’s rights because women are attacked and raped much more than men in all societies on earth. Gun control hurts women the most.
The truth is that the police cannot stop all crime. In America, people who are law-abiding are what is called the militia. They can stop crime and they are doing it, but the corrupt media don’t report this fact.
For details, check out the most recent FBI report on crime in the USA for 2018. The U.S. crime rate is in a 30-year decline as more people are buying and carrying guns.
Nations that have banned guns or “bought them back” such as Great Britain and Australia have not seen a reduction in crime – quite the opposite has occurred.
Thugs love attacking and raping unarmed people and thugs don’t respect or follow gun control laws, so they have the weapons. Mr. Trump has been very good on this issue and ought to be re-elected on this issue alone.
Liars and hypocrites. The Democrat leaders have their armed guards, but they don’t want the American people to have the same protection. Don’t listen to their propaganda and don’t vote for them, no matter what they promise you!
Remember that Mr. Obama promised the American people that “you can keep your doctor” and that “health insurance costs will go down” if they passed Obamacare. The opposite occurred! It was a complete lie.
Obamacare was also passed illegally. Revenue bills must originate in the House of Representatives and this did not occur with Obamacare. The bill imposes a fine on people who don’t buy health insurance and that is revenue for the government.
The Democratic Party is made up today of mostly communists and socialists, whether they admit it or not. They will do everything in their power to destroy the laws or subvert them so they can exercise complete power over the nation.
That is the choice in 2020! Please help, starting now, to re-elect Mr. Trump and a Republican Congress, and Republican state and local governments.
