The Deterioration of Government

The deterioration of every government begins with
the decay of the principles on which it was founded
~Charles-Louis de Secondat

  • “It was leadership here at home that gave us strong American influence abroad, and the collapse of imperial Communism. Great nations have responsibilities to lead, and we should always be cautious of those who would lower our profile, because they might just wind up lowering our flag.” ~Ronald Reagan

  • “Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honor, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions” ~John Adams, letter to Mercy Warren, 1776

  • “The foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality, and the preeminence of free government be exemplified by all the attributes which can win the affections of its citizens, and command the respect of the world.” ~George Washington, First Inaugural Address, 1789

  • “Many who think themselves infinitely superior to the aberrations of Nazism, and sincerely hate all manifestations, work at the same time for ideals whose realization would lead straight to the abhorred tyranny” ~Fredrich von Hayek

Do these not describe the pathos of modern Democrats?

  • “The party should not become a constable of public opinion, but must dominate it. It must not become a servant of the masses, but their master.” ~Adolf Hitler (describing his Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei [National Socialist German Workers]’ Party or NAZI)
  • “The unity of a nation’s spirit and will are worth far more than the freedom of the spirit and will of an individual; and that the higher interests involved in the life of the whole must here set the limits and lay down the duties of the interests of the individual” ~Adolf Hitler (describing the socialist state versus individual Liberty)
  • “We are Socialists, we are enemies of the capitalistic economic system…and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions . . . To be a socialist is to submit the I to the thou; socialism is sacrificing the individual to the whole” ~Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda

Democratic Socialism, like Nationalist Socialism, is nothing more than Marxist Socialism repackaged. It seeks a centrally planned economy directed by a dominant-party state that controls economic production by way of taxation, regulation and income redistribution. The success of Democrat Socialism depends upon supplanting Essential Liberty – the rights “endowed by our Creator” – primarily by refuting such endowment. But to assure you:

  • “Socialism of any type leads to a total destruction of the human spirit” ~Alexander Solzhenitsyn,
  • “Clearly, the idea that Hitler was a Rightist is probably the most successful BIG LIE of the 20th Century. He was to the Right of the Communists but that is all. Nazism was nothing more nor less than a racist form of Leftism (rather extreme Leftism at that) and to label it as ‘Rightist’ or anything else is to deny reality.” ~Dr. John J. Ray, Australian expositor on the socialist foundation of the NAZI Party

Regardless of the populist variant of Socialism, the consequences of of all three are tyranny! (paraphrases of Mark Alexander)

A principle Democrats have embraced:

  • “Marx said that the revolutionary dictatorship of the proletariat lies between capitalism and communism [Read: “socialism”]. He noted, “Political institutions are a superstructure resting on an economic foundation,” and that foundation must be destroyed in order to bring down those institutions ~Vladimir Lenin

  • , Future Freedom Foundation President wrote, “There is no difference in principle, between the economic philosophy of Nazism, socialism, communism, and fascism and that of the American welfare state and regulated economy” ~Jacob Hornberger (paraphrasing Friedrich von Hayek)

Reagan’s words ring true more for this election, than in 1964:

  • “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness” ~Ronald Reagan
