Democrat = Socialist

Not buying it?  Check out this quote from Virginia Democrat Congressman Jim Moran:

We have been guided by a Republican administration who believes in the simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it and they have an antipathy towards means of redistributing wealth.  And they may be able to sustain that for a while, but it doesn’t work in the long run.

I have heard people defend Obama and say that we just don’t know what we are talking about.  That the Democrats are not Socialist.  Well, you can’t get more Socialist than that.  Maybe Mr. Moran needs to read some of Thomas Jefferson:

“To take from one because it is thought that his own industry and that of his father’s has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association–‘the guarantee to every one of a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.'”

    So the complex notion would be a group of people, I am to assume the Federal Government, settings limits on the wealth of a person, taking the wealth from that person that is over the limit, and then giving the collected wealth to others that are under that limit.

    Sorry Congressman Moran, I prefer the simple notion that I have the opportunity to profit from my ambition, attitude, and drive.

    Remember Animal Farm, it was history, now it is a prediction of the leadership of the Democrat party.

    I wish the Democratic party WAS socialist…

    Dill, buddy, you need to do a bit of travel….U.S. doesn’t look so bad after a few months abroad! Oh…get sick while your at it and check out some “universal” healthcare.

    Dillon, I stopped commenting to Roland & Co., here or on my own blog, a long time ago, and I’m still not. I’m responding to you, because I like you. Don’t waste your time. These people will NEVER concede a point. God himself (herself?) could say they were wrong and they would still ague. They will argue with things you’ve never said, and they will be condescending while they do it. They will also have things to say about this comment, but I won’t respond to them then, either.

    You’re too smart to mess with these people.

  5. Dillon Sorensen Says:

    Ava – I have done quite a bit of travel. Last summer, I spent 2 weeks doing mission work in Germany and a week vacationing in Austria. The summer before that, I spent 2 weeks in Germany doing more mission work, and a week vacationing in The Netherlands. And, funny story – last time I was in Germany, I had to visit a doctor’s office. What a great experience it was!

    justthisgirl – I have noticed that. I made a couple lengthy comments on here, but soon realized that the arguing was not worth my time. I respect Roland’s opinions, I just wish he would respect those of others. I will take a trip over to your blog sometime soon…

  6. Roland Says:

    Hmmm…I have never deleted a post here (except for vulgar ones). I engage in arguments here. I don’t concede points just for the sake of it. I have agreed with Dillon on other blogs. I have condeded points on my blog.

    I ask for proof of things all the time and never get it. For example, can you point out where I didn’t respect an opinion? How do you define not respecting an opinion? I would think it would blocking someone from posting which I don’t do.

    Anyway, if you don’t like it here, don’t come back, just don’t drop accusations, not back them up, then run away.

  7. Mark Elrod Says:

    Don’t waste your time here, Dillon. Come over to my site where you can converse with like-minded liberals, free from these conservative bozos.

  8. Roland Says:

    Interesting. Didn’t expect that!

    Mark Elrod,

    I have heard great things about you and have tried to visit your blog. However, it says that I must be registered. How does one go about doing that?

  11. justthisgirl Says:

    Ugh! I’m jealous, Dillon. I want to go to Mark Elrod’s site and converse with like-minded liberals, too. This will teach me not to lurk. I used to go there quite a bit, but never commented. Ah, well.

    Dr. Elrod, if you’re handing out invitations…

    Recently read a book that described how the internet is making us more closed minded instead of more diverse. Our thinking is limited to reading and conversing with like-minded people. We have become incapable of true, open discussion without name calling… conservative bozos???

  13. Roland Says:

    I agree. Too many people only want to listen to like minded thinking. They thrive on hearing their own thoughts and beliefs spewed back to them. They cannot stand to have their thinking challenged. These are the “Jersey Wearers”. The people with the big “D” or “R” stamped on their chest and who will vote for that letter above all else. They love the catch phrase “Libertarian? Oh, you’re throwing your vote away!”. How about I’m standing up for my principals?

  14. Dillon Sorensen Says:

    I do not really care about my principals. I am more inclined to stand up for my principles. 😉

  15. Roland Says:

    Don’t blame me just because I type fast! 🙂

  16. Dillon Sorensen Says:

    I can forgive you. I know I sounded like a jerk..but I could not resist!
