Comparison of the two parties

Democrat = progressive =
= socialist =
= communist

Republican = capitalism =
= progressive=
= some socialist

The original Democratic party was used to control the American Black population and other minorities including religious then swerved over to join the formation of worker’s unions (even government employee unions, in other words government employees for the most part belong to two unions, their employees union and the government which is also a supporting union). They moved toward progressive to increase their membership promising high wages for less work via the unions and government agencies. They did not tolerate and still do not support right to work but instead support group adhesion or pay to work.

Money represents their belief of a persons qualification, the more a person can contribute the more they are recognized.

Progressive becomes socialist usually starting rightly to help the elderly, handicapped, ill and poor but quickly becomes a talking point for votes where they try to force the population to contribute to the welfare or share the wealth with their perceived voters. Socialism cannot support itself so in time the cost creates a serious loss of the middle class as their cost to live increases and their income stagnates or drops; while at the same time the government people and the wealthy become even more wealthy. Socialism does not produce anything except higher cost of living and in time the money will dry up because people or workers will soon get tired of working for nothing when they are not allowed to keep anymore of their money than those not working at all or are part-time receive.

Normally at this time the fringe communist party disappears only to surface quietly in the socialist party. This leads to a massive government and the removal of the rights that the people have been accustom to, it’s a very slow process starting back as far as the 1962 Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev who promised to bury Capitalism in American from the inside; assuming he meant the government.

What normally follows is an up-rising of the workers along with the anger of the people who have been receiving free handouts in some cases for all of their lives and who can no longer get these handouts join to overthrow of the existing government, the time table of this is reliant on the amount of capitalism that is allowed to stay, such as it is, in force (China is an example because Hong Kong was returned to them, that economy is carrying China along with the bad US policy and it will continue to carry them until they decide that it is time to kill the golden goose “which they will” and the US policy changes. This could mean war or absorption of its neighbors.)

The original Republican Party was formed to assist business and factory owners and naturally went out to end slavery because slaves were not paid for their work which did not benefit the north but did the south, one was mostly manufacturing and the other large plantations. This imbalance along with the agreement that slaves could only be counted as ¾ each instead of one each in the census that determined the number of representatives from each State in the US Congress set the country’s coarse toward civil war.

The Republicans embraced Capitalism but not necessarily workers which contributed to the formation of unions in the US. This made unions necessary but a union is progressive and socialist by nature so in time they will become top heavy and fail.

Many republicans favored progressive ideas and in time leaned toward socialism, this allowed the progressive party to push through many rules and laws that hurt the American workers. This came about because they were much more interested in staying in office rather than working for Capitalism and the American people.

This year everybody can see the cure of the Republican Party because of the Republican Primary that was just completed, seventeen people running and a businessman coming out on top.

We are still waiting to see if the Democratic Party chooses to correct their socialist problems which are turning quickly toward Communism.

It is evident from history that Socialism/communism always runs out of money to support themselves then need to strip its people of their belongings and after that they find it necessary to attack their neighbors in an attempt to resupply their cash reserves (once again China and Russia). This creates wars.

Capitalist governments rarely attack their neighbors except possibly through trade deals.

The Republican Platform

The Republican platform committee included language calling for a border wall along the U.S. and Mexican border in the draft party platform, getting behind one of presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump’s keystone proposals.

The group wrapped up drafting the plan Tuesday in Cleveland in advance of the convention there next week, when the platform will officially be voted on by the full convention’s 2,472 delegates.

The proposal platform will express support for a “border wall” that must cover “the entirety of the Southern Border and must be sufficient to stop both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.”

The measure was proposed by Trump supporter Kris Kobach, the secretary of state from Kansas.

“This is why we support building a wall along our southern border and protecting all ports of entry,” Kobach told Fox News. “The border wall must cover the entirety of the southern border and must be sufficient to stop both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.”

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, appearing on “On The Record with Greta Van Susteren,” said that including the border wall in the party’s proposed platform was a “hat tip” to Trump.

“Whether it’s a fence or a wall, I mean, for years and years the platform has included the border fence, which congress passed in 2006 but never actually funded,” he said. “The idea of a border fence has been in our platform for many, many years and just changing the word from fence to wall is what they did and maybe it was a little hat tip to Donald Trump on that issue and that’s fine.”

“It’s something that the party had in the platform for a long time,” he added. “We are just saying what our position is but as far as who pays for it, you know, Congress already agreed that it would be paid for 10 years ago and now it will be up to President Trump to figure that one out.”

In addition to the border wall proposal, the draft party platform calls for a slowdown in any new multinational trade deals and eliminates support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

While embracing some of Trump’s proposals, the proposed GOP platform continues the party’s previous stance against same-sex marriage, and other socially conservative issues.

It’s Time to Take Action. Genetically Engineered (GE) Foods

Despite the tens of thousands of calls, faxes, tweets, and emails by Food Revolution Network members like you, the US Senate passed a sham GMO labeling bill last week.

The bill (S. 764) now goes on to the House, where it may pass by the middle of this week. So this new “Denying Americans the Right to Know” (DARK) Act could be on Obama’s desk to be signed or vetoed in the next few days!

Though its supporters call it a “labeling” bill, this new DARK Act actually exempts most current genetically engineered (GE) foods from any labeling. That’s right – according to the FDA’s comments to Congress it would leave out large sectors of GE foods from any labeling requirement.

This bill is really a non-labeling law masquerading as a labeling law.

Meanwhile, the bill preempts the strong GE food labeling laws of Vermont, Connecticut and Maine, the GE fish labeling law of Alaska, and the GE seed labeling laws of Vermont and Virginia.

When he first ran for President, Barack Obama pledged to support GMO labeling. Now it’s time for him to follow through on that promise, and to support your right to know what’s in your food.

This bill gives corporations the power to hide GE labeling by using digital QR codes that can only be read by smartphones. As if anyone had the time to point their smartphone at each and every product they are buying in the supermarket, wait for some website to load, and then read through it to get some basic information that consumers just want on the package to begin with!

And there’s another dismal thing about these QR codes. They discriminate against more than a third of all Americans who do not own smart phones. That’s more than 100 million Americans who will have no way of accessing GMO information labeled with QR codes.

P.S. This is a critical moment. If President Obama vetoes this legislation, Vermont’s first-in-the-nation labeling law will continue to be in effect and will be enforced by the end of the year. Many more states will follow, and the right to know will become a reality. But his own secretary of agriculture, Tom Vilsack, has already made it clear that he supports this bill. So it’s likely that only a massive public groundswell can pull Obama to fulfill his campaign promise and stand on the right side of history. Click here to speak out now.

Thanks for speaking out,

10 Foods That May Prevent Dementia & Alzheimer’s

By Hayley Hobson • Originally published on Mind Body Green

When I was 14 years old, my grandfather died of Alzheimer’s disease. I remember the years leading up to his death and how quickly his mind wore away.

I’d accompany my father to the hospital and be shocked to watch my grandfather drinking imaginary tea from an imaginary tea cup, talking to himself, and not recognizing his son at all.

I don’t have many memories from my childhood but these are definitely some of the worst.

I watch my 3 year-old whose memory is utterly fantastic, not clouded at all by all of the toxins and pollutants that have begun to fog my own brain. And as I watch her, I cannot imagine not knowing who she is 30 or 40 years from now.

Alzheimer’s and dementia are some of the scariest and most emotionally-triggering degenerative diseases. But they are easier to prevent than previously thought.

If you have a family history of one of these diseases or are worried about what they may do to you as you age, one of the first things you can do is modify your diet.

Here are 10 foods you should add into your diet that can help improve your mind:

  1. Leafy greens. Some ideas: kale, spinach, collard and mustard greens. These foods are high in folate and B9, which improve cognition and reduce depression.
  2. Cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, brussels sprouts and kale contain folate and have carotenoids that lower homo-cysteine (an amino acid linked with cognitive impairment).
  3. Beans and legumes. These foods contain more folate, iron, magnesium and potassium that can help with general body function and neuron firing. They also contain choline, a B vitamin that boosts acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter critical for brain function).
  4. Whole grains. Good bets include quinoa, kammut and gluten-free oats (not bread and cereal)
  5. Berries and cherries. These fruits contain anthocyanin that protects the brain from further damage caused by free radicals. They also have anti-inflammatory properties and contain antioxidants and lots of vitamin C and E.
  6. Pumpkin, squash, asparagus, tomatoes, carrots and beets. These vegetables, if not overcooked, contain vitamin A, folate and iron that help with cognition.
  7. Omega 3s. People whose diets contain daily omega 3s have been shown to have 26% less risk of having brain lesions that cause dementia compared with those who do not. These fatty acids help the brain to stay in top shape. You can get your omega fatty acids from fish, flax seeds, olive oil (not safflower) or by taking a good quality omega 3 supplement.
  8. Almonds, cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts and pecans. All of these nuts contain omega-3s and omega-6s, vitamin E, folate, vitamin B6 and magnesium.
  9. Sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. These seeds contain zinc, choline and vitamin E.
  10. Cinnamon, sage, tumeric and cumin. Theses spices can all help to break up brain plaque and reduce inflammation of the brain which can cause memory issues. In addition to eating the foods listed above, you’ll want to decrease the risk of illnesses that can make your brain age such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes and hypertension.

Other things to avoid are the toxins in your food, water, soil and environment, unnecessary stress, caffeine, sugar, drugs, alcohol and sugar.

Encourage healthy decisions, conscientiousness, positive peer groups, a clean environment, exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, 8 hours of sleep, stress management and gratitude.

Republicans?

It seems to me that the republicans plan to lose nearly every election; I was talking to a republican the other day and it brought to mind the many republicans that I have been talking to off and on for years, they all plan to lose to the democrats.

Donald Trump, he won! Yet republicans can’t seem to get a grip on this fact just like our congress can’t understand that they won and are eager to turn all decisions over to the democrats; for awhile I couldn’t understand why republicans chose to not back their winner which is in fact throwing their vote to the democratic candidate by voting for her, a third party candidate or by simply not voting, it’s all the same.

They all say that they cannot stomach the democratic candidate but at the same time they can’t support their own candidate even though the the vast majority of the republican voters chose him. Didn’t he receive more votes in the primary than any other presidential candidate in recorded history? Doesn’t that give you a hint, shouldn’t we be building on that rather than trying to tear it down?

They seem to be looking for the magic candidate to appear out of some cosmic event called the republican conviction; republicans it will not happen.

People Donald Trump is your candidate, he received the votes putting him over the top and by a lot not a little, the delegates are tied to him and he will win on the first ballot and no super candidate will appear and take over.

Republicans… our candidate is Donald Trump, it’s a done deal! There will be no replacement coming.

My advise quit gossiping with the democrats and start selling our candidate instead their candidate.

Keep in mind that it is either Hillary or Donald who will be President of the United States next year, it’s your choice; vote for Trump and set the future for you and your children or vote for Clinton and sat another Communist in our White House which will once again set the future for you and your children by redoing the judicial branch of our country.

I remember when the leader of the old USSR said that they would destroy the US without firing a shot, of course Reagan did just that to them, but if a person looks at our government it is evident that we are letting our elected officials attempt to change us to the USSA (United Social States of America); they are slowly destroying our middle class by moving them and their families from the middle class to the poor class. If republicans don’t start working to win both elections and governing we will end up with a poor welfare class and a rich political class who will be issuing cash (welfare)to us as they see fit.

It is time for republicans to stop being embarrassed when they win and start selling everybody they know including democrats on Donald Trumps abilities instead of passing on the democrats talking points.

How many times have you heard a democratic team that previously ran for president and vice president belittle and spread doubt about their current president and vice president team, I’ll answer for you “never”, when have you heard the republicans do it, again I’ll answer for you “yesterday”.

Let’s plan to win for a change.
