Van Jones is claiming in the Huffington Post that he and his leftist cohorts are trying to save the American Dream from the Tea Party. It is incredible that this communist has the guts to claim such a thing while leftist policies continue to wreak havoc upon the United States.
It is not the Tea Party but the forces of collectivism that has caused life to be so hard for so many people. For example, Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot recently said in the Investors Business Daily:
"Having built a small business into a big one, I can tell you that today the impediments that the government imposes are impossible to deal with. Home Depot would never have succeeded if we'd tried to start it today. Every day you see rules and regulations from a group of Washington bureaucrats who know nothing about running a business. And I mean every day. It's become stifling."
Roadblock after roadblock have been put in front of honest people to make it harder for them to reach their dreams. These are the roadblocks Van Jones and his ilk have championed.
Margaret Thatcher once said:
Socialists cry "Power to the people", and raise the clenched fist as they say it. We all know what they really mean-power over people, power to the State.
She recognized the manipulative style of the collectivists. Millions of people today do so too. Van Jones is trying to change the narrative. Well, like the Iron Lady said, we all know what they really mean.
