We read all about Bernie Sanders and his self-proclaimed Socialist Democrat Party, but few have dug into what that is. Under Obama's Marxist/Socialist ideology, our nation has fallen behind in nearly all areas of what the American Dream encompasses. Bernie Sanders ideology also does not fit the Constitution or the American Way.
What does Socialism really mean and where does it comes from? The word "Socialism" originated in 1839; it encompasses all that is against the very basis of our Constitution. Socialism does not allow WE THE PEOPLE the right to own or work as we wish. The entire definition of Socialism shows how it is used by Bernie Sanders and it cannot be Democratic or a way for our Constitution to work.
Socialism: n (18390 1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the production and distribution of goods 2 a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state 3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.
This definition shows very clearly that Socialism does not fit with our Constitution or the freedom we enjoy. Bernie Sanders quickly states that Socialism is not like what he calls Democratic Socialism. Now, let us define the ideology of Bernie Sanders and see how closely it relates to the basic ideology of Socialism.
In contemporary political discourse, "democratic socialism" is sometimes used synonymously with social democracy.
Democratic socialism is a political ideology advocating a democratic
political system alongside a socialist
economic system, involving a combination of political democracy with social ownership of the means of production. Sometimes used synonymously with "socialism," the adjective "democratic" is often added to distinguish itself from the Marxist-Leninist brand of socialism, which is widely viewed as being non-democratic.
Democratic socialism is distinguished from both the Soviet model of centralized socialism and from social democracy, where "social democracy" refers to support for political democracy, regulation of the capitalist economy, and a welfare state. The distinction with the former is made on the basis of the authoritarian form of government and centralized economic system that emerged in the Soviet Union during the 20th century, while the distinction with the latter is made on the basis that democratic socialism is committed to systemic transformation of the economy while social democracy is not. That is, whereas social democrats only seek to "humanize" capitalism through state intervention, democratic socialists see capitalism as inherently incompatible with the democratic values of freedom, equality and solidarity; and believe that the issues inherent to capitalism can only be solved by superseding private ownership with some form of social ownership. Ultimately democratic socialists believe that reforms aimed at addressing the economic contradictions of capitalism will only cause more problems to emerge elsewhere in the economy, that capitalism can never be sufficiently "humanized," and therefore it must ultimately be replaced by socialism.
Democratic socialism is not specifically revolutionary or reformist, as many types of democratic socialism can fall into either category, with some forms overlapping with social democracy. Some forms of democratic socialism accept social democratic reformism to gradually convert the capitalist economy to a socialist one using pre-existing democratic institutions, while other forms are revolutionary in their political orientation and advocate for the overthrow of the bourgeoisie and the capitalist economy.
Bernie Sanders is using the term "Democratic" as a crutch to push for his idea of the United States, which is not good for freedom or the American Way. He is using the idea of Democratic Socialism to push for total control of what people do, what they say, and where they work; it will all be controlled by the Government, which leaves no freedom to do what an individual does today.
Let us get to some of Bernie Sanders's supporters to see that not just Socialists, but also Communists, want him to win.
· In October 1988, journalist I. F. Stone, a former Soviet agent and secret member of the Communist Party USA, wrote a letter endorsing Sanders's congressional campaign. Said Stone: "He has proved that a socialist, running as an Independent can be successful by speaking out for working people, the elderly and the poor, and by advancing a pragmatic socialism to deal with the grave problems of our economic system."
* In October 1994, Sanders joined Maurice Hinchey, Major Owens, and Nydia Velasquez in introducing to Congress a "Jobs and Investment Bill" calling for the appropriation of $42 billion for "make-work" construction and infrastructure projects.
* In 1995 Sanders joined fellow House members Peter DeFazio, Marcy Kaptur, Gene Taylor, and Nydia Velasquez in co-sponsoring a bill designed to force the U.S. to withdraw from NAFTA within 90 days. The bill never became law.
* In 1995 Sanders supported Rep. Ron Dellums's "Living Wage, Jobs For All Act," along with David Bonior, John Conyers, Lane Evans, Bob Filner, Alcee Hastings, Maurice Hinchey, Jim McDermott, Cynthia McKinney, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Major Owens, Nancy Pelosi, Edolphus Towns, and Nydia Velasquez.
* Sanders was a guest speaker at a January 9, 1997 event titled "The Progressive Challenge: Capitol Hill Forum," sponsored by the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the Democratic Socialists of America, and numerous other left-wing organizations. The primary objective of this event was to "identify the unifying values shared by progressives at this point in U.S. history, to help define core elements of a forward-looking progressive agenda, and to pinpoint ways to connect that agenda with the concerns of millions of disillusioned people who lack voices in present politics and policy-making." Other speakers included Noam Chomsky, Barbara Ehrenreich, Patricia Ireland, Jesse Jackson, and Richard Trumka.
* In 1997 Sanders co-sponsored Congressman Matthew Martinez's Job Creation and Infrastructure Restoration Act, which proposed to use $250 billion in federal funds for the establishment of union-wage jobs rebuilding infrastructure (e.g., schools, hospitals, libraries, public transportation, highways, and parks). Martinez had previously introduced this bill in 1995 at the the request of the Los Angeles Labor Coalition for Public Works Jobs, whose leaders were all supporters or members of the Communist Party USA.
* In October 1998 in Chicago, Sanders was a guest speaker at a "Back to Basics" conference on the future of the American Left. Other speakers at this event, which was sponsored by In These Times, included Barbara Dudley, Jim Hightower, Cynthia McKinney, Paul Wellstone, and Quentin Young.
* In February 2000, Sandra Caron, a staffer from Sanders's congressional office, went on a six-day "fact-finding" tour of Havana, Cuba, to study the "effects of [the] U.S. embargo." The trip cost $1,778.47 and was paid for by the Christopher Reynolds Foundation.
* Between 2000 and 2014, Sanders used campaign donations to pay his wife and stepdaughter more than $150,000 for campaign-related work, according to Federal Election Commission records.
* From 2005-07, Sanders participated in the Campaign For America's Future's (CAF) annual Take Back America (TBA) conferences, whose goal was to help leftist political candidates win their respective races. Sanders has also been a supporter of CAF's sister organization, the Institute For America's Future. In 2011, he addressed
Take Back the American Dream conference (the new name for TBA) hosted by CAF and the Institute for Policy Studies.
* In an effort to promote the Media Ownership Reform Act in 2007, Sanders addressed the Free Press at its national conference that year.
* In July 2010, Sanders -- along with fellow Senators Al Franken, Tom Harkin, and Jeff Merkley -- was part of a Senate delegation to Vietnam to "look into environmental remediation of dioxin and the joint funding of medical services for people with disabilities, and [to] meet with Vietnamese government officials to discuss education initiatives, labor issues and trade relations." Dioxin was a highly toxic ingredient in the Agent Orange herbicide which the U.S. military used in the Vietnam War.
* Sanders believes that America should withdraw from the World Trade Organization because the WTO favors multinational corporations and the wealthy, rather than the poor.
* Among the notables who have contributed money to Sanders's political campaigns over the years are Aris Anagnos, Ed Asner's wife Cindy, Brent Blackwelder, Ossie Davis, Rob Reiner, Susan Sarandon, Jan Schakowsky, Pete Seeger, Barbra Streisand, and Margery Tabankin.
This just illustrates that Bernie Sanders does not wish to help people: he wants to make them all slaves to the government with his Socialistic ideas that are set against all the Constitution stands for. Bernie Sanders should never have reached the point of where he is today, but our nation, the United States, is failing; freedom is collapsing very quickly, due to the young people being brainwashed to think that the Constitution is old and should not apply in today's world. That very idea is just what the Communists and Socialists pursue—they want to have only 2 classes of people: the elite and the poor. The Democratic Party has been trying since 1859 to make slaves of the people of the United States so they could control not just the vote, but also the very lives of the poor people. No matter what the Democrats do, they never help the poor; they keep them poor, and Bernie Sanders will make it much worse.
These are facts that can be found throughout many locations on the web today, and the young people should look up every bit of information, not just about the candidate, but their ideologies, too, since that is what they represent. Bernie Sanders is aligned with a Socialist ideology that wishes to enslave the people. He may say it is not, but they have been planning for this for a very long time – working from within – lying to the people to get elected – then doing all they can to stop the free enterprise of the United States.
