The Democratic Party Must Be Soundly Defeated If the Republic Is to Survive

The Democratic Party, by supporting big government and the Deep State at the expense of the individual, threatens to transform America into a totalitarian nightmare. That is why we need to vote the Democrats out of power.

The respect accorded the rights of the individual is what makes our society unique in world history. This is a first in human development. Never before has respect for the individual been placed on a pedestal. No prior human society enjoyed as its core value the protection of individual rights. No prior human society took the trouble of writing it down in a single document. The U.S. Constitution, by limiting federal power, is designed to protect the individual citizen from external coercion.

Before the Declaration of Independence, the individual served the society or the country in which he lived. What we consider “totalitarianism” was the norm. “Man should not be in the service of society,” said philosopher Joseph Campbell. “Society should be in the service of man. When man is in the service of society,” Campbell warned, “you have a monster state, and that’s what is threatening the world at this minute.” The Democratic Party is mounting that threat.

An inverse relationship exists between size and scope of government, and respect for individual rights. Where there is more of one, there will be less of the other. As power is transferred from elected representatives to an unaccountable bureaucracy—the Deep State, we relinquish more and more of our independence.

The federal government under Obama and Biden has been trying to insinuate itself into every facet of our lives. “Every single one of [Obama’s] initiatives,” said American Thinker, was “directed at increasing government control in every area, with a corresponding decrease in individual liberty.” Biden is following through by empowering the Deep State and the media to crush his political opponents. “[Biden is calling for] censorship of political opinions,” said Tucker Carlson. “What you’re seeing here is dangerous. There’s no other way to describe it.”

The goal of the Democratic Party is a one-party state. The Biden administration has declared that the ‘most lethal elements’ in our society are political conservatives. As a result of this unsupported allegation, the DOJ and FBI are being weaponized to go after Republicans. “The FBI is now an organization solely focused on destroying the domestic enemies of the Democratic Party,” said talk radio show host Jesse Kelly. The Deep Staters in the DOJ have just announced the creation of a new domestic terrorism unit that will target “anti-authority ideologues,” i.e., conservatives and Republicans. The implication is that if you distrust Biden’s government, you are considered a terrorist.

The Democratic Party’s ultimate alternative to democracy is socialism, where the government takes control of everything. Socialism is a form of big government that despises the individual and has been accompanied in every case by totalitarianism. “While democracy seeks equality in liberty,” wrote Alexis de Toqueville in 1848, “socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”

Political freedom, said F.A. Hayek in The Road to Serfdom, signifies “freedom from coercion, freedom from the arbitrary power of other men.” George Orwell, author of 1984, knew from personal experience how big government can trample all over individual rights. Orwell was particularly impressed by Hayek’s statement that “collectivism gives to a tyrannical minority such powers as the Spanish Inquisitors never dreamed of.” Orwell and Hayek agreed that liberty and security are at opposite ends of the political spectrum. Big government, which makes a false promise of security, is capable of extinguishing liberty.

The Supreme Court is beginning to question the power of the Deep State. Justices Gorsuch, Alito, and Thomas want to scale back what Congress is constitutionally permitted to allow regulatory agencies to do. “[If they are successful, it would] vastly increase the power of the courts to overturn agency regulations,” said Noah Feldman on Bloomberg. “That, in turn, would put the agencies in fear of their own continued existence each time they regulated aggressively.”

In the meantime, as Orwell warned, “Totalitarianism, if not fought against, could triumph anywhere.” The Democrats are working overtime to ensure that it happens here. It is imperative that their seditious efforts be defeated in 2022 and 2024.
