The Note: It would be pathetic if it weren't so hypocritically vile.
"It is time for us to realise that parts of the socialist demands are reasonable and right..." (Bismarck 1871)
"The State must take the matter in hand, since the State can most easily provide the requisite funds. It must provide them, not as alms, but in fulfilment of the workers' right to look to the State for help in matters where their own good will can achieve nothing more. Why should not the labour solider receive a pension, just as much as the man who has been disabled or has grown oold in the civil service? This view will generally be accepted in the course of time. " (Bismarck 1888)
By 1933 Germany and France had national education, disability insurance, pensions and health care.
By 1945 the idea trickled over to Washington when FDR announced the "Second Bill of Rights:
We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. Necessitous men are not free men. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.
In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all—regardless of station, race, or creed.
Among these are:
The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;
The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;
The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;
The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;
The right of every family to a decent home;
The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;
The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;
The right to a good education.
All of these rights spell security. And after this war is won we must be prepared to move forward, in the implementation of these rights, to new goals of human happiness and well-being.
For unless there is security here at home there cannot be lasting peace in the world.
The Democrat Party is like a garbage can that needs to be scoured from the inside out.
