During an INTERVIEW on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Pete Buttigieg warned that “democratic capitalism” is “slipping away” from the U.S.
“America is a capitalist society. But it’s got to be democratic capitalism. And that part’s really important. And it’s slipping away from us. In other words, when capitalism comes into tension with democracy, which is more important to you? I believe democracy is more important,” he said.
The phrase “democratic capitalism” used by Pete Buttigier, is very telling and alarming, but a phrase one would expect to be used by someone whose father had a love affair with communism.
”The father of Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was a Marxist professor who really, really liked the Communist Manifesto.
He dedicated much of his career to the work of Italian Communist Party founder Antonio Gramsci, an associate of Vladimir Lenin’s, The Washington Examiner reported.
If you talk about this, you will be told you’re trying to destroy poor Pete, but it’s an important discussion to have if people are seriously considering this man as president.”
It’s quite obvious when Pete talks about “democratic capitalism”, he certainly is not talking about a free market, free enterprise system and leaving the people free to pursue their own economic interests, and free of special preferences financed by confiscating the wages of labor which are then doled out by the hand of government to a privileged few.
In fact, Buttigieg is talking about a centrally controlled system in which democratically elected folks in government manage a centrally controlled economy, such as the failed Soviet Union’s planned economy ___ a system which left the people enslaved and destitute, while the elected planners lived large at the people’s expense.
Some typical modern-day examples of Buttigieg’s “democratic capitalism” would be Obama’s green energy money laundering operation, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, our student loan crisis, the 2018 farm subsidy bill, small business loans, and many other taxpayer financed schemes in which our federal treasury is plundered by folks in government, and a privileged few benefit at the expense of hard working citizens having their earned wages confiscated to finance the above mentioned privileged few.
Let us not forget history when thinking about voting for those promoting “democratic capitalism”, and those who are self-anointed socialists. They all have one thing in common ____ confiscating your hard earned wages and redistributing your wages to pay for the free government cheese they have promised in order to get themselves elected.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her socialist companions claim to be advocates of hard working people living in our nation’s inner cities. If that is so, why are they not promoting an end to the unconstitutional “Temporary Victory Tax” of 1943, which began federal confiscation of the bread which working people have earned by the sweat of their labor ___ earned wages which are confiscated and then redistributed by the hand of government to a privileged few?
