Democrat = Commune-ism?

Long advocates of "It takes a village" mentality, the Democratic party is down to the dregs of any pretense of not espousing communisim in its simplest form.....

Their new phrase for this is revealed by Neal Boortz in his weblog this morning:

"The Democrats have now rolled out their catch phrase for the 2008 mid-term elections. You'll be hearing it time after time after time from Democrat spokesmen and candidates from now until election day. It's a phrase that does nothing less than lend support to the identification of Democrats as nothing less than big-government socialists.

The Democrat's catch phrase is one that will surely bring smiles to the faces of Marx and Lenin in whatever corner of hell they now occupy. The word --- or two words, if you will -- for the Democrats is now "common good."

Well, at least the Democrats are being loyal to their socialist roots. "Common good" was a catch-phrase for the communist movement for decades, now it is being officially embraced by the Democrats. No real surprise here. Democrat icon Ted Kennedy announced the war on individualism -- using those very words -- many years ago.

The idea of the "common good" is completely contrary to the concept of individualism. You either support and promote the idea of individuality, or you ignore the rights of the individual for the good of the whole .. for the common good.

So .. here we have the Democrats telling you just exactly who they are, and who they think you are -- not an individual, just one element that makes up the masses.

These people and their socialist "common good" theme are dangerous to freedom, liberty and the very concept of the individual. If you're looking for a reason to vote for the free-spending, big-government Republicans, the Democrats and their "common good" theme would be it."

Why do not the GOP bring this out themselves a bit more clearly? Are they afraid the Dems might backtrack and call them liars? If they did, and then later restated their "common good" theme, it would be a wonderful item for the GOP to re-expose.

Sometimes I think the GOP feels it is good to be the "nice guys", and thus lose a lot of points they ciould otherwise make.
