This is something I have wondered aloud in past postings, both here on the blog and other places. Paul McGuire delves into this. - Sailor
Kerry the Manchurian Candidate
Thursday, Oct. 28, 2004
John Kerry is the Manchurian Candidate. He has been programmed by his own ideology to kill the American Dream. If John Kerry is elected President of the United States, he along with the Democratic Party, the courts and the liberal media will unleash a brutally dark future for America.
The problem is that John Kerry along with his allies in politics, media and the judicial system are completely blind to the grave dangers of their own ideology. Like the jubilant workers who joined the Communist Revolution in Russia, these Kerry-led Utopians will find themselves utterly betrayed by their own belief system.

The root of the problem is that John Kerry’s political and social ideology is essentially a modern revision of classic Marxism, and like Marxism it will fail to bring a “workers paradise.” Instead, it will bring totalitarianism, the loss of freedom and the demise of the United States of America.
During the Democratic National Convention we kept hearing the slogan “Help Is on the Way!” In George Orwell’s novel "1984," “Big Brother” used slogans like “Work Is Freedom.” The Democratic Party and John Kerry are misleading the American people when they say “Help Is on the Way.” What they really mean is that “Big Government,” “Big Brother,” is on the way.
Government has no power to help without raising taxes and expanding its already giant bureaucracy. What this really means, as President George W. Bush has pointed out, is raising taxes on the middle class. The government will take money from the middle class and redistribute the wealth among the poor. This means that American soccer moms can look forward to standing in line for Third World-style health care along with illegal immigrants, drug addicts and prostitutes.
Kerry’s “universal health care” is really “Big Government Health Care.” It is the same thing as Cuban, Scandavian, Russian and Chinese “universal health care.” I have had dozens of callers on "The Paul McGuire Show" who fled these countries to come to the United States. They have related horror stories of waiting months and even years for treatment.
In the Scandanavian countries, dentists will pull teeth instead of filling cavities because it is cheaper. In Canada one lady said that after she went to the “government health care dentist” her fillings fell out of her mouth on the way home. Kerry’s “universal health care” is Third World-style health care!
John Kerry will appoint radical judges and ultra-liberal Supreme Court justices who allow the far left to do an end run around the democratic process and enact dangerous and radical social reform. This will lead to a loss of freedom of speech, religious liberties and constitutional freedoms. John Kerry has already told us that before he does anything it will “have to pass a global test.” That is simply code for “I will begin to surrender U.S. sovereignty to the United Nations.”
What John Kerry, the Democratic Party and liberal media do not understand is that their ideology has very serious self-destructive qualities. Big Government and socialist economic policies always lead to a loss of freedoms, economic stagnation and either hard or soft totalitarianism.
Like the old “Hollywood Left” that continued to believe in Communism despite the news reports of mass slaughter by Lenin and Chairman Mao, Kerry and his followers continue to cling to the toxic myth that Big Government will solve all of our problems. Ronald Reagan understood very clearly that not only will Big Government not solve our problems but that Big Government IS the problem!
However, John Kerry and his ideological buddies at the New York Times and CBS do not fully understand that ideas have consequences, and that bad ideas have bad consequences. Kerry and his ilk are stuck in an ideological time warp birthed in the counter-culture of the 1960s. The images of John Kerry with his long hair, the anti-war marches, the pictures of Jane Fonda should burn into your mind like scenes from "The Manchurian Candidate."
John Kerry, the Democratic Party, the liberal media and the judicial activists have all been programmed to kill the American Dream. They have been seduced by an ideology that has proven not to liberate but destroy every nation that has embraced its precepts.
This election represents a life-and-death struggle for the future of the United States of America. Vote for George W. Bush!
