Socialism isn't Communism


The founding ideas of Socialism set out by Marx and Engles were intended to end capitalism as capitalism was thought to over exploit workers or the low class. Aggressive in their view this "method" was adopted and hijacked several times into Totalitarianism which many understand as Communism or Dictatorship. On the contra the basic definition of Socialism is still a government by the people and for the people and works perfectly in a Democratic government. In fact socialism is a necessary part of a democratic government to prevent Totalitarianism by Global Corporate giants.

The methods of government, America must put in place are a balance of historical methods in place for many years in different governments. The first thing Americans must realize is that the word Socialism or Social is not to be feared. Its a method already employed since Roosevelt to save this country from destruction 70 years ago. Hence "Social Security". These methods will be necessary to keep our country moving forward for the next 200 years. Capitalism allows companies (global and American) to act in their best interests and not the nation. Although this promotes periods of economic booms, also comes the potential for total collapse. Imagine America if Roosevelt had been a member of the Republican party of 2008 with the ideas of small government. This country would be economically owned by Russia or Germany and we would be part of a different Totalitarianism system. Do not take this likely! A country ran by capitalism can be hijacked by China, Middle East of even a new group yet to be known.

What Democracy is.....

Democracy is a form of government. A form in which the supreme power is held completely by the people under a free electoral system.

How this "Democracy" is put in place is the "method" of government in acted by the people.

The key is "methods". Most Americans believe Democracy is the saving grace to our existence, free will, and success. No, its the methods employed by our founding fathers that kick started this country on its way the only global super power at the beginning of the 21st century.

American Democracy 2008. The Method in place now is allot different than the methods enacted by our founding fathers. Methods that have taken control from the government which is suppose to be a direct representation of the people and placed this control in the hand of lobbyists and larger corporations. Large companies are driving the government and they have convinced Americans that a smaller government is needed to better America. The fact is a smaller government takes power from the people and places it into the hands of the rich who are mainly corporate America.

A corporate government repels acts setup to protect the average American when the interest is in bettering the corporate wealth. For example the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 prohibits commercial banks from engaging in the investment business. Put in place after the Great Depression to make sure this event never occurs again. Well guess what Corporate government did in 1999? I hope you guessed right. The wealthy who did not have enough money from the stock market rally of 1999, greedily wanted even more. The big banks wanted in on the gold rush and to hell with history, to hell with the average American. Corporate America knows whats better. The government overturned the law. This is just one example of many I look forward to share as we discuss what America must do ..... to exist in 2100.

Intro to Blog

This Blog will openly discuss the type of Democracy, America will need to continue to exist for another 200 years. Yes fellow Americans .... there are types (methods) to Democracy. The current methods of early 2000's will cause America to anarchy before 2050. I want to discuss some of the basic items Americans must realize to continue moving this great nation moving forward.
