What do democracy and communism have in common?
By Jon Britton

What do democracy and communism have in common......

The commonalities begin with class warfare between the haves and the have-nots. The have-nots will always exist in greater numbers than the haves, so democracy allows the majority have-nots to vote themselves control of what the haves have.

Like the old communist saying, "from each according to their ability, to each according to their need." Whether wealth redistribution is by means of government force or "democratic" mob rule is largely irrelevant. Both methods have the same result.

Democracy, socialism and communism are sold under the auspices of "power to the people," but it is a false claims on all counts. It is power to the people, who are IN POWER. Nothing more.

The only real power that "the people" ever have is in their consent, "consent of the governed." And in their ability to withdraw that consent, but only IF they have the firepower to back it up.

Otherwise, the will of others will be imposed upon you, be it the government's will or the majority's will.

The Constitutional Republic model is the only governmental model I've seen that retains the "power of the people," restricts or restrains the power of government and allows for the rights of the minority to be protected from both the majority and the government itself. The balance and separation of powers are key.

There is a reason why Democrats and Socialist/Communists demonize the rich. Democracy, socialism and communism all require class envy and class warfare to achieve their power. Consolidating power is the goal. Concentrated within the democratic mob or concentrated with the central government planners. Concentrated power is never a good thing.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Sandi is right. Trump wants a military parade, he wants tanks and troops on Pennsylvania Ave like a commie red.

So Russia is our friend as the victor? We liberals hate Russia and it's war on our democracy because we are socialist? You're the one cozying up to the KGB operative that has been talking with your president with no recordings and no advisors.

That ended in 1945. Russia started this in 2103 and subverted Wikileaks's to provide their stolen hacked material to the world in 2016 during the election. I'm not like trump when he says the Kurds didn't fight with us in WW2 ( they did), but you can it compare ancient history with recent history to mimimize Russia's recent and CONTINUED attacks against us.

You don't need to go back 80 years ago to find fault with our enemy Russia, what you do need to explain is why you will not address their attack on this country. Then and now.

News flash to the geriatrics that love Putin's close friend the dip$hit in chief. The $hit nature of Russia aint old news. Recently the Russians have among other things assassinated their own dissidents, poisoned people on British soil, bought into the willing NRA, f$cked with the brain dead GOP oldsters during our elections, caused $hit in Syria/Turkey, and still fully support the biggest idiot we've ever had for President.

Dopes like minnow kisser and nobodyelse loving on the commies because accent hollywood's pu$$y grabber in chief says Vlad is OK! They are fake patriots at best. Moscow Mitch would be proud of them!

Why this respect for Russia as our ally in WW2 but the Kurds are left to be killed by a Turkish Russian alliance formed in the vacuum left by trump when he failed to see how his ignorance would lead to these consequences? Old allies vs allies two weeks ago? Putin just stole turkey as our ally by trump's ignorance. Putin will be dictating the wars, the pieces and even the military hardware sold. This failure will haunt us for many years as we watch Russia's influence and military hardware sales squeeze the US out.

^^ Are you really that dumb? Millennials and college students ditched Facebook a million years ago. The sea of people on there now, sharing those dumb Russian-sourced memes and goofy "true stories" are your "conservatives and older people". Particularly dumb ones, because Facebook sucks.

Exactly the people they wanted to target.

You sound like one of them. I mean, you still think that "....." is a how you make a line break.
