Democrats or Socialists?


I ran across this article on the American Thinker web-site and just had to pass along the link along with a great quotation. This, friends, is worth the read and I hope you will not hesitate to go over there and absorb it all.

The article is written by Lance Fairchok and is entitled "Why Do We Call Them 'Democrats'?"

Here is the quotation that stood out for me:

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of 'liberalism,' they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

That's what we have this year, by the way, as a choice in our presidential election. We have a Marxist/Socialist in Barak Obama representing the Democrat (sic) party and we have what in a perfect world would be the liberal democrat candidate in John McCain representing the Republican party.

Obama likes to call himself a progessive who is for change, but all he offers is the same, tired, old socialism of the 20th century about which there is nothing progressive at all.

McCain is a self-styled maverick which only serves to deflect the obvious that he varies from his conservative brethren toward the liberal side far too often. In truth, he is a democrat in the mould of Harry Truman or LBJ.

Enough of politics, it's Sunday! Go to church! But be sure to read that article I linked above.
