It seems clear, from where I sit, that the ‘Democrats’ are rapidly moving left, leaving Liberalism to the Republicans. Here is what I mean by Liberalism:

"Liberalism (Websters): noun 1 : the quality or state of being liberal 2 a often capitalized : a movement in modern Protestantism emphasizing intellectual liberty and the spiritual and ethical content of Christianity b : a theory in economics emphasizing individual freedom from restraint and usually based on free competition, the self-regulating market, and the gold standard c : a political philosophy based on belief in progress, the essential goodness of the human race, and the autonomy of the individual and standing for the protection of political and civil liberties d capitalized : the principles and policies of a Liberal party."

George Bush Jr., Cheney, McCain, Gingrich, etc., constantly talk about these topics, but Pelosi, Reid, Obama, Kerry, and Kennedy seldom do. Things have changed a lot since 1776! Until about 15 years ago, neither Democrats or Republicans were internally homogeneous. They had big business, blacks, southern racists, northerners, the poor, intellectuals, populists, and communist hunters mixed up in each party like two similar batches of cookie dough.

But then Karl Marx entered the mix in about 1992. With the communist scare gone, Socialism seemed safe, as long as you used `progressivism', or some other euphemism. Marx's philosophy, called dialectical materialism, said political opposites would unite and merge, and then new opposites would appear. This seems to have happened with the Democrats and Republicans. The Democrats have always had a Socialist fringe, but now, rear-ended out of the middle of the political intersection by Bush, Democrats seem to have shed modern liberalism in favor of a fairly strong Leftist philosophy.

Forget what "far right" things the Republicans have done in the past. Right now, to me, Bush seems to occupy a Liberal democratic center.

Here is the Democrat political philosophy, espoused by Pelosi, Reid, Obama, Kerry, Kennedy and others: (1) big government, because it's needed to impose social control, (2) high taxes, because money is needed for big government, (3) economic levelling, because wealth redistribution is key, (4) controls on capitalism, because capitalism is bad, (5) top-down political structures, because Leftists favor cooperation instead of competition, so competition must be suppressed from above, (6) pro-global government, because Leftists are transnational, and abjure the nation state, (7) pro `Doom Theory', because these theories justify big, global, top-down government, (8) antiwar, because they do not want to help liberal democrats win in the global struggle, (9) pro moral relativism, because according to Marx, and dialectical materialism, morality is constantly in flux, changing, and less important than striving for Socialist ideals, (10) anti-religion, because it distracts from the pursuit of higher Socialist Ideals, (11) pro-Islamist, because Socialists have common cause with Islamists in opposing Republican liberal democracy, (12) anti-Israel, in order to be pro-Islamist, (13) equivocation on the Constitution, because the liberal democracy articulated in the Constitution is at odds with Socialist ideals, and (14) pro gun control, to help facilitate top-down government control. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck...it may be a duck. There is no other theory that I can think of which explains so much of the disturbing behavior of the Democrats.

Canadians need not waste time with euphemisms. The US Democrats are Socialists.

OK, my last post may have been a bit long, so how about if we boil it down to this question: Why do the Democrats have no articulated plan to fight terrorism?
Is this because,

(1) They intend to cease, and stop fighting the war on terrorism. Blocking the Republicans in Congress will force an end to the US involvement in Iraq. Democrats can then claim the Republicans are failed, dangerous militarists, prone to wasting American lives on pointless wars.

Or is it because, (2) The Democrats do have a plan to fight terrorism, but they have not disclosed it yet.

Which of these two answers seems correct to you?

A very sad week for this country.
Very sad...
