America was not set up as a collectivist nation and our Constitution – the Supreme Law of the Land – provides no legal authority for collectivism. In fact, collectivism is completely anathema to our American founding principles.
I’ve often written, especially of late, that Democrats have a little wiggle room to deny being socialist, fascist or communist but they cannot dispute being collectivist.
Some examples of Democrat collectivism include, but are not limited to. . .
Democrats believe we need the Social Security system to help the elderly poor, but the system cannot work unless everyone in the country participates whether they need it and want it or not. That’s collectivism.
Democrats believe we need Medicare to take care of the elderly whether they need it or not and want it or not, but for the system to work everyone must participate. That’s collectivism.
Democrats believe we need Medicaid to help the poor whether they need it or not or whether or not there is a better way to care for the poor. That’s collectivism.
Democrats believe in free public – government – education and that everyone must pay. That’s collectivism.
Democrats believe that women are stupid and inept and cannot pay for their own needs or “rights” and that everyone must pay. That’s collectivism.
Never mind the fact that collectivism whether expressed through socialism, fascism or communism has never worked in the history of the world. Never mind the fact that collectivism is the antithesis of freedom and the exact opposite of what our Founders established and there is just no legal foundation for it in our Constitution. It just never works.
There are more examples, of course, but you get the idea.
