Some have question whether the Democrat Party is like that of the current political system that governs Russia today. And that Communism, which derives itself from Socialism, is not an Oligarchy with in the modern day political spectrum, which also includes (as some say) a Republic, like the US system.
So, to clear up some confusion with some folks on where Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Nazism, Democracy, Republic and Anarchy lie within the political spectrum, I will refer you to this video that really simplifies what form of governing lies with in an Oligarchy.
Now, are we headed for an Oligarchy. AKA Communism, Socialism or Social Justice Democracy?
Or are we there?
Here is my take on what has happen the last two years that leads me to firmly believe we are at the door step of a socialist society, mostly thanks to the Democrat Party.
Socialist shares the view that capitalism unfairly concentrates power and wealth among a small segment of society.
AKA: The top 1%. However the top 2%-20% own most of all Capital in our country. Democrats (and yes, Republicans, too) in power fall with in that income bracket. But the Democrats target the top 1% income bracket and use taxation to strip that 1% of their wealth for social programs.
Socialist also believe in eliminating or repressing the anarchy of capitalist production
AKA: Micro Regulation of industry
They believe in interventionism
AKA: Firing of GM's CEO
Socialists advocate complete nationalization of industry with in a capitalist society
AKA: Obamacare, Federal reserve.
Socialist believe that state control of capital within the framework of a market economy is a must.
AKA: Obama czars hold power to limit pay to executives, even if they did not get federal funds for the bailouts. Obamacare healthcare exchanges.
Socialist believe that the state should have ownership models with the free market exchange"
AKA: GM, Chrysler, Obamacare
Socialist want selective nationalization of key national industries in mixed economies.
AKA: Obamacare, Federal reserve banks
Social democrats also promote tax-funded welfare programs and micro regulation of markets.
You name it, Obama and the Dems do it.
(This next one stands out the most)
Social democrats- Socialism, in their view, can be reached through the existing political system by "reforming private enterprise"
Healthcare, American Automotive manufacturing, micro Regulations of business.
Marxist-Establish a new socio-economic system through "rapid change"
Example Obamacare bill (HR 3200) introduced July 14th 2009, then sent to committee. July 17th 2009 it returned from committee and Obama called for it on his desk by Aug 4th 2009 to sign in to law.
We ARE being socialized.
