The socialists in Congress

A few years ago, when I stopped by to visit the Washington office of my congressman, Henry Waxman of Hollywood, I received the shock of my life. It was like stepping into an office in socialist or Communist country. It was drab. Everything was cold and impersonal. Members of his staff, were dressed down, way down. One staffer made a point to tell me that everyone who worked for Mr. Waxman — from the chief of staff right down to the secretaries — all received the same pay.

Waxman works on socialist issues. He votes like a socialist, but is he a socialist? Well, he is one of 58 members of Congress — 57 Democrats and one independent — who have signed onto the agenda of the Democratic Socialists of America.

This group in the House of Representatives calls itself the Progressive Caucus. Waxman, by the way, is the ranking member of the Government Oversight and Reform Committee. But that’s just the beginning. There are seven ranking committee members in this group.

The Democrats have put socialists in charge of their members on the Ways and Means Committee, the Banking and Small Business Committees, The Science Committee, the Veterans Committee, the Resources Committee and the Judiciary Committee. In fact, there are five members of the Progressive Caucus on the committee currently holding hearings on the Inquiry of Impeachment for Bill Clinton.

There is nothing progressive about the Progressive Caucus. The Democratic Socialists of America is an affiliate of Socialist International, whose roots go all the way back to 1864. Don’t be fooled by the use of the word “democratic.” The group explains, “At the root of our socialism is a profound commitment to democracy, as means and end.” The end this group has in mind is economic redistribution in order to achieve social and environmental justice.

"The end this group has in mind is economic redistribution in order to achieve social and environmental justice."

Really their end is redistribution. That has been mistakenly admitted by Obama, just once, but it was telling and he won't make that mistake again.

But we should not surrender the cause of justice to these people. No, their agenda is not "justice", not social or environmental. They have an agenda that proclaims their end is justice but their real goal is to take from others what isn't theirs. It is economic greed not justice. They're not happy watching anyone have more than they have so they construct a solution to the problem. It involves taking from other people via a middleman, i.e., government taxation, and giving to themselves.

Don't buy that this is justice. It is NOT!!!
