American Thinker: Reality and the American Left

Europe, the birthplace of socialist/Marxist theory, is rapidly retreating from this failed ideology — and has been for some time. There is now an open discussion among the most die-hard of Leftist ideologues conceding the fact that a political or economic system which guarantees prosperity to that country’s citizens, and operates a massive central government model, cannot work in the modern age of global economy and communication.

In the United States, however, the Left, including those in the White House, are determined to go where others have failed.

The 20% of the population who consider themselves Liberal or Progressive have succeeded in dominating not only government, but most of our institutions. It is this domination that has led the United States to the brink of bankruptcy and societal upheaval. Yet as a group, they are oblivious to the damage they are causing to a country which has given them so much and asked for so little in return.

    [It is this domination that has led the United States to the brink of bankruptcy]

    Saying that doesn’t make it so. Reagan tripled the U.S. debt and Bush doubled it. Obama inherited huge budget deficits from Bush. He didn’t create them.

    There has never been a country with a free market economy that has had a healthy middle class. Free market economies lead to plutocracies. We need well regulated capitalism to have a healthy middle class.
