Czarist America!

Czarist America!
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
***********************************

CNSNews.com is reporting the following: “By 2012, nearly $1 trillion from the top 30 percent of American families will be redistributed among the bottom 70 percent if Obama’s proposals on taxes, health care, and climate change become law, according to the Tax Foundation. “Even if none of Obama’s policies becomes law, the extent of income redistribution is remarkable,” Scott Hodge, president of the nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, said. “The top-earning 40 percent of families will transfer $826 billion to the bottom 60 percent in 2012.” Under the Obama plan, 70 percent of American families as a group -- those earning less than $109,460 -- will receive more in benefits than they pay in taxes, Hodge said. “The majority of people below the 70 percent mark will get more back than they pay in taxes,” Hodge told CNSNews.com.

This is a story you NEED to read and to consider. You’ll find it HERE.

THIS, Dear Reader, is Socialism… “Redistribution of the Wealth.” For Conservative Americans our worst nightmare has come true… America has become, indisputably, a Socialist State!

We might add also, America will soon be listed among that list of socialist states that have failed. Why? Because, inevitably the founders of socialist states forget two very important things: One, the folks from whom the money is being taken, money they made from their labor, their efforts, will soon come to question why they should work so hard when what they have earned is taken from them. They will slack off, production will drop, and the national economy will tank. And two, eventually the inevitable will happen, the money will run out.

To reinforce the socialist state mentality, the Obama Regime has put in place a group of Czars. These Czars can operate behind he scenes to drive the government in directions you and I might loathe, but since they are insulated from the public, from the Congress, they have the power of true Czars, which is nearly unlimited, and deeply hidden from public scrutiny. This is only a part of the Shadow Government we warned the Obama regime would usher in if elected. Back then, months and months ago, we warned that Obama would only be the public image portrayed by the real rulers of America the – the Shadow Government. We warned that the Shadow Government would use Obama’s narcissism against him. We warned they would allow Obama to think, to believe, the HE is actually pulling the strings when, all the while, the Shadow Government, through the Czars, are actually running America.

These Czars are not elected and they are unanswerable to the American people. They issue rules and regulations that have the force of law. Go against them and they will crush you. Like the Russian emperors for whom the word “Czar” was coined, they are very nearly all powerful.

Who are these Czars? Well, we still do not know the identity of some of the Czars. There are some we do, however. Take a look at the list of those identified Czars below:

Democratic Party - Democratic Reform Party

As Democrats of the Democratic Party, we join together in seeking reform within the Democratic Party.

Many Democrats already know their elected representatives within the Democratic Party are no longer following in the time-honored footsteps laid down by the founding fathers of our great Nation. More importantly, we as democrats see our elected representatives within the Democratic Party abandoning the values and principles as set forth within the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.

At the very least, many of our elected representatives within the Democratic Party are no longer abiding to the sole reason the Democratic-Republican Party was founded by Thomas Jefferson - "Strong state governments with a weaker federal government."

This is only the beginning of our problems as Democrats, for many of our elected representatives within the Democratic Party have clearly set their own agendas over the members of the Democratic Party, our Nation, and the American people. Overall, many of them no longer think of themselves as being our elected representatives, and now refer to themselves as leaders in the true form of tyrants.

Most Democrats already know their pleas are only being answered by repeated insult and injury by their elected representatives within the Democratic Party. Despite this, we as Democrats can restore control of the Democratic Party back to the party members. All we need to do is cut off donations to the local, state, and national headquarters of the Democratic Party, and to make sure the donations are made directly to worthy and honorable Democratic Party candidates.

So spread the message to everyone of our fellow Democrats, for the Democrat members are taking back control of the Democratic Party. Also, please don't forget to contact and request the Unions and other outside contributors to follow our lead as patriotic Americans. Thank you!
