Demand that the Democratic National Committee – AKA, the Democratic Party – change its name to – are you ready for this? The Democrat-Socialist Party, the DSP.
Republicans May Ask Democratic Party to Change its Name
Republican National Committee member James Bopp Jr. says President Obama wants "to restructure American society along socialist ideals." He and others in the RNC have drafted a resolution to rename the Democratic Party the "Democrat Socialist Party." The proposed resolution ... calls upon the Democrats to be truthful and honest with the American people by renaming themselves the Democrat Socialist Party," said Bopp. He compared the branding to Reagan calling the Soviet Union an "evil empire."
After I stopped laughing I thought to myself, “Hey, wait, those guys may be on onto something.”
Stop and think about it for a second. First, there's no question that most Democrats believe the primary job of government is to provide for the welfare of those they govern. Democrats want to provide all kinds of public services; medical care, education, unions for workers.
Therefore, Democrats will agree to this “truth in party branding” if the RNC changes its name to:
The Republic-Fascist Party.
Now listen, I'm not trying to be a smart-ass here. Each party has it's leanings. Neither is all one thing or the other, but they each lean in a given direction. The Democratic Party is not really a bunch of pure socialists, nor is is the Republican party filled with fascists. I'm just following the lead of the RNC folks who thought this idea up. It's "tendencies" we're operating on here, right?
So, fellas over at the RNC, I'm on board with your proposal for truth in party re-branding. So let's do it, and get it done before the 2010 mid-term elections. Because, I agree entirely with you that, when voters go to the polls, they have a right to know exactly what are the underlying tendencies that motivate each of the two party candidates on the ballot.
And what could be more clear and unambiguous than boiling the decision down to a choice between a socialist and a fascist?
Finally, a GOP idea I can get behind.
