Is Climate Change the New Marxism?

The radicals behind the movement that are championing “climate change” are mostly liberal progressives who want to undermine the only system that has brought about less poverty in the world - it is called “free enterprise capitalism”. In the United States it is the Democrats (a/k/a Democrat Socialists (Bernie Sanders), Progressives, and liberal Democrats) who are clamoring for these anti-free enterprise rules and regulations with the main intention of instituting “income re-distribution” and punishing the so-called “rich” and successful, the people who have created millions of jobs, and as a result they have become wealthy through their dedication and hard work. The liberal radicals have been demonizing the “anti-poverty” entrepreneurs for years, and are now using the emotional term “climate change” as their catchword for achieving their insidious goals of trying to rid the world of capitalism and free enterprise.

Look around you today, what do you see? Most public and private schools are staffed by by teachers and professors that preach the Utopian” (really should be called “Dystopian) economic philosophy of Socialism (a/k/a Progressiveism, Marxism and Communism). These radical educators have invaded the campuses of the U.S. in droves, with some estimates that 80% to 90% of the faculty members are radicals trying to inculcate their philosophy into the mushy minds of impressionable students who have not met life's challenges yet, and are susceptible to the liberal, radical propaganda put forth by these teachers and professors.

Look at the phenomenon of the voters of the U.S. who elected a president twice who proclaimed that he wanted to “fundamentally change” the U.S. even though he was voted the most liberal senator, as a U.S senator representing Illinois. The fact that he was black and articulate helped him, along with his political cronies, to take over the reins of government. In the almost 7 years of his presidency, he has not let his fellow radicals down, he has in many areas transformed our government into a European- styled country with his out-of-control (many deemed to be unconstitutional) dictates and presidential directives.

Well, has his transformative changes worked for the betterment of our country or have they hindered the economic and political growth of the U.S.? Let's take a look at what has happened over these past 7 years. Today, according to Obama and his fellow Democrats, they proclaim that the biggest threat facing the U.S. and the world is not “IsIamic terrorism”, but “climate change”. Can you imagine a sane person equating the march of Islamic terrorism across the world with “climate change” being the major threat to western civilization? Well, the Democrats, including their candidates for president, have actually stated that as a fact. How naive and out of touch with reality can they be? It looks like the “Rules for Radicals”, expounded by Saul Alinsky, philosophy has taken hold of the Democrat Party (both Obama and Hillary Clinton are acolytes of Saul Alinsky). Alinsky's rules have been used by Obama to push his radical socialist agenda forward. The results have been unspectacular, to say the least, and harmful to the United States.

Here are the sorry results, 93 million potential workers out of the workforce and not counted in the BLS unemployment rate of 5.1%, the true rate (the U-6 rate) is over 10%, 48 million people on food stamps, 50 million people at or below the poverty line, the GDP has hovered around the 1% to 2% growth rate when 4% should be the minimum growth rate for real progress, and one of the biggest budget busters facing us today is the Affordable Care Act, (Obamacare) that has covered only 10 million (mostly by government subsidy) out of the 40 million touted that would be covered when this monstrosity was debated and passed only by a Democrat Congress. The big costs of Obamacare will start to kick in starting in 2016.

So, when our “esteemed” leaders proclaim that “climate change” is our major national threat, they should be looking in the mirror to see who are the real threats to our country are – they might just see the real threats of our country in the reflection in the mirror – it is themselves.

This presidential election in 2016 will be pivotable for our country's survival. Do we continue “down the yellow-brick road” to disaster by electing more radicals or will we face the real threats facing us in a realistic manner? We must elect people to office who will not drag us down , both economically and politically, with the result of making us a copy of third world disaster cases like Venezuela and Cuba. You must vote Republican to save our republic.

Let's not continue following the Karl Marx playbook - free enterprise capitalism is the prescription for success not the tired failures of the tenets of Marxism as espoused by the Democrats. Climate change is just a smokescreen to undermine our capitalistic free enterprise system. Don't fall for it.

Remember about 15 years ago when Al Gore predicted that due to global warming the East and West coasts would be flooded out in 15 years? Well, as usual when a doom and gloom liberal makes a prediction, it never comes true. Also, do you remember a couple of years ago, Al Gore bought a water front house on the Pacific coast, I guess the floods won't reach his estate anytime soon. I say take all the government grant money away from these academic charlatans and you'll see the non-existence of man-made climate change, as the mothers-milk of climate change fears needs money to survive.
