Are Democrats the 4 “S” Party?

Democrats, for years, have been claiming that they are the the party for the “Average Joe” and the party for the minorities as compared to the “evil” Republicans. Is that a fair comparison, or have the Democrats been very successful in duping the people into thinking that they are that kind of compassionate party? Some, on the other hand, have claimed that instead of the virtues extolled by the Democrats of being that compassionate party, they are actually the 4 “S” party - the party of “Slavery”, “Secession”, “Segregation”, and “Socialism”. Is that a fair statement?

Historically, it was the Democrat Party who promoted slavery (prior to Abraham Lincoln). After the Civil War, it was the party of Lincoln (the Republicans), who passed the 13th Amendment, granting slaves freedom, the 14th Amendment, granting them citizenship, and the 15th Amendment, giving them the right to vote. It was Republicans who sent federal troops to the Democratic South to enforce the hard-won rights of freed slaves. During the Civil Rights demonstrations of the 1960's, it was the Republicans who supported those laws by over 80% in both the House and Senate. But, the Democrats constantly claim a monopoly as the party of civil rights.

With all those positive actions on the part of the Republicans, why do blacks and other minorities generally support the Democrats come election time? Have they been sold a bill of goods by the Democrats and a compliant media? You could say that the Democrat Party really is the party that wants to keep blacks and other minorities on the “plantation” by offering them “goodies” from the public treasury, thereby making them dependent on the Democrats to continue getting this largesse from the government. Instead of helping the minorities, those policies have created and ever expanding underclass who are totally dependent on the government for their livelihood. Some for generations.

One of the principles fostered by the Democrats and by President Obama, is the principle of “sharing the wealth”. Taking from the “makers” and giving to the “takers” - that's right out of the father of Socialism, Karl Marx's playbook. In fact, over 70 Democrats in the House and Senate are members of the Democratic Socialists of America, including most all of the Congressional Black Caucus. From health care to “Cap and Trade”, the policies of Obama and the Democrats are mirrored after the countries of the European Union, who are mostly socialist oriented and as of today, many are economic basket cases including Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal. Are those the policies that the voters bought in 2008 under the slogan of “Hope and Change”? Our extended recession, since Obama took office, is a direct result of those socialist policies promoted by the Democrats and Obama. They have constantly “demonized” our companies (the job creators), and have been hostile to them by threatening them with their “class warfare” themes and rhetoric, including the threat of increasing taxes on the producers of our economic engine. The explosion of the government, in employment and regulations, have been the result. One of the sad signs of our policies is that we have demonized those who produce, subsidized those who refuse to produce, and canonized those who complain.

We need real “hope and change” not just the empty rhetoric of an incompetent narcissist who seems to not have the best interests of America at heart. So, I declare that the Democrats are the party that could and should be called the 4 “S” party.

In Martin Luther King, we had a "Dream", with Barack Hussein Obama we've got a "Nightmare". Jimmy Carter is elated that he has fallen from the #1 Worst President spot, as Obama is now #1 (worsest - where's Keith Olbermann when we need him?)
