And the so-called "moderate Democrats" are merely socialists.
It wasn't so long ago that much loved Democrat President John F. Kennedy told the nation in his inaugural address, "Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country", implying a sense of self sacrifice was needed by all Americans to keep the torch of freedom burning bright in a world filled with tyranny.
An idea most could relate to regardless of political affiliation.
But times have changed and modern liberal philosophy has become almost unrecognizable to previous generations. It can be more accurately described as: "Forget personal sacrifice, keep sitting on your behind, and let the government rob your neighbor for you."
