Reflecting on the Democratic Party Heading Down the Socialist Path in McHenry County

As the McHenry County Democratic Party celebrates socialism in Woodstock across the street from where Socialist Party Presidential candidate Eugene Debs served time in the County Jail , Ersel Schuster, former McHenry County Board member, shares her opinion:

Socialism, Is A Fallacy Of The Left

How interesting is it to see our local Democrats spreading their wings and poised to assure a “dark-blue-wave” in the McHenry County 2018 General Election.

In their Labor Day coming-out-party on the Woodstock Square; they make it clear they want us to know they are “celebrating socialism.”

They call on “organized labor” supporters to help spread their message and goals.

All in all… more people who, for the most part, truly believe companies and those who built and operate them, are villains.

For several years they, the Democrats and organized labor, have been quietly working to undermine election after election in the county.

They proudly, and openly, peddle their hatred for capitalism, the very reason America is the one place in the world grateful people aspire to join.

Proud enough to take a lead in celebrating socialism is a county board candidate in Dist. 5.

Included in their program are Democrat candidates for Dist. 2 and, Dist. 6.

This is all well and good except for the rationale behind their love affair with socialism.

Socialist  Bernie Sanders strongly carried McHenry County in this more or less final results of the Democratic Party Primary Election.

For a faction of the county/country population, it is inexplicable how those who fashion themselves the intellectuals among us… can be so solidly, and blindly, misguided.

Socialisms’ world-wide failures escapes them.

One explanation for this could be the indoctrination they received through our educational system.

It still defies explanation how otherwise intelligent people can close their eyes to a simple fact that socialism is a failed philosophy.

Current examples are Venezuela… and, soon to be, South Africa.

Those who have observed politics in McHenry County for decades are grateful our resident Democrats are finally brave enough to not only expose their liberalism, there are now those bold enough to expose their devotion to socialism.

It is honestly refreshing they are finally making it clear who they are, what they stand for and that they are positioning themselves to make major changes to our county government.

Now, if we could only convince those who, over the years, have had the hutzpah to put an “R” behind their names, running for elected office as Republicans, to move to the socialists’ column, we would have a politically level playing field.

No one has more clearly defined socialism than Great Britain’s Prime Minister, Margret Thatcher, as she uttered those well-reasoned, and simple words:

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”

What a statement depicting the truth of uncensored history.


Reflecting on the Democratic Party Heading Down the Socialist Path in McHenry County — 25 Comments

  1. Nothing more refreshing than a political commentary and analysis from the irresponsible Klaatu Barada Nikto herself. For these compassionate conservative reactionaries, Socialism is only about Venezuela, a country currently being crushed by an US-EU economic blockade (our government calls it economic sanctions) but apparently, Northern Europe does not exist in this flat planet we inhabit. “Democracy for an insignificant minority, democracy for the rich, that is the democracy of a capitalist society.” See you at the Woodstock Square, bring an umbrella, and celebrate the life, example, and legacy of Eugene V. Debs, who stated in 1912: “Poverty, high prices, unemployment, child slavery, widespread misery and haggard want in a land bursting with abundance; prostitution and insanity, suicide and crime, these in solemn numbers tell the tragic story of capitalism’s saturnalia of blood and tears and shame as its end draws near”. Stay tuned…64 days…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meow, meow, meeeeeoooooowwwwwwwww…

  2. Having lived in socialist countries in Europe for many years I can assure you it does not work.

    It is very sad that someone who teaches children would not know that.

    Angel, please do not teach our children your disjointed, infantile view of socialism.

    Please open a book or better yet, travel and learn something.

  3. I hope this Socialist thing in the square is a wash out.

    How embarrassing to be celebrating Socialism in America.

    How anti-American!

  4. “Socialist Bernie Sanders…blah, blah, blah, blah, blaaaaaaaahhh…” Congratulations to McHenry County Democrats for having supported Democratic Socialist, and Independent Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton on the March, 2016 primary. Thank you Klaatu Barada Nikto for reminding us about these results. Too bad you did not do that well during your last attempt to reach our McHenry County Board. This is yet another reason to attend today’s rally at the Woodstock Square and celebrate the life or Eugene V. Debs, a champion of union labor and freedom. Did you know Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician and public official in these great United States? Lean forward. Hear the whisper. The bluenami will be here before we know it to wash away this republikkklan plague in the United States Congress; and next, we will take care of the orange chump. Stay tuned…64 days…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meow, meow, meeeeeoooooowwwwwwwww…

  5. My dear Klaatu, your whole existence is a joke, but I wanted to share another joke (with equally tragic implications as your existence) that continues to gain traction as it explains the capitalist economic system you so much advocate for. ‘A banker, a worker, and an immigrant are sitting at a table with 20 cookies. ‘The banker takes 19 cookies and warns the worker: “Watch out, the immigrant is going to take your cookie away.”’ This story did not originate in Venezuela, I promise…Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeoooooowwwwwwwww

  6. Because Socialism is working out so marvelously in Venezuela and various European countries.

    Ignore reality at your own risk and experience the true joys of enslaving yourself and your countrymen.

  7. And just think. Based on those previous posted Bernie vote tally’s. There’s a whole County proletariat with 4X4’s, machine shops and a mountain of guns just waiting to do these gadfly’s bidding.

    I’m closer to being put up against a wall by these garbage people. than I thought.

  8. Ersel says about Democrat socialists, right here in our County:

    “(They) truly believe companies and those who built and operate them, are villains.”

    “They proudly, and openly, peddle their hatred for capitalism, the very reason America is the one place in the world grateful people aspire to join.”

    Barack Obama and Cherokee Liz Warren in the past both disparaged successful hard working American entrepreneurs and business owners and leaders by saying:

    “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

    Liz and Obama clearly have no clue about business and entrepreneurship. They have no record of running or owning a successful business or any business for that matter.

    Some local Democrats apparently are highly misguided and gullible and they take their cues from incompetent top Democrat national leadership. A leadership that includes the socialist/commie Sanders, the thug Hillary Clinton and the Governor of the influential State of New York, Andrew Cuomo, who said:

    “We are not going to make America great again. It was never that great.”

    You have to wonder if some Democrats, the far left wing radical element that runs that Party, truly love this Nation.

  9. There are so many stories about cookies including one about a union leader who arrived early at a conference room for a meeting with management. He noted that the cafeteria staff brought pots of hot coffee and a tray of cookies. He quickly scooped up all of the cookies into his briefcase and hid the tray in a closet before the management arrived on time for the meeting.

  10. It isn’t like the local Republican Party is really doing anything to combat socialism.

    We are all too afraid to say anything in that we might offend someone.

  11. Angel the douchebag. There is a leadnami waiting for your bluenami. I don’t hear a whisper. I hear click, click, boom. If you heard it, it wasn’t meant for you.

  12. Aww their little Commie “coming out party” was a mud hole wash out!

    Dirty is as Dirty does.

    Guess Mother Nature was sending a message “Not in my country”.

    Good article on the perils of the system these idiots celebrate, Ersel.

    You are learned and home spun at the same time.

    A sage.

  13. Uninformed right-wing: Calls both Europe and Venezuela socialist, glosses over differences in living conditions between these places and differences in policies.

    Uniformed left-wing: Calls Europe socialist, ignores countries that are more socialist than Europe yet worse places to live. Still says they admire socialism.

    To the left, if you want the Nordic model why don’t you just call yourself a social democrat instead of a socialist? Why not advocate for more of a mixed economy instead of socialism? You have to know that “northern Europe” has private property, income inequality, division of labor, workplace hierarchy, etc. Even they don’t describe themselves as socialists. Why do you pander to stupid people by defending socialism, if what you want is a market economy with a larger welfare state?

    To the right, you’ve largely created this mess by using the term socialism to refer to some really bad places like Cuba/North Korea/Venezuela as well as countries in Europe with higher standards of living than the U.S., and by being unable to differentiate, say, Barack Obama from Kim Jong Un. Why do you pander to stupid people by calling everything that isn’t America, Pinochet’s Chile, or Singapore “socialist”?

    Maybe you should both start being more precise with words.

  14. Just came back from our annual celebration of American hero Eugene V. Debs in the Woodstock Square; another resounding success. To those outraged by the celebration of Socialism in America, please be a true American patriot and make a pledge to give up your social security benefits. Stay tuned…64 days…tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeoooooowwwwwwwww…

  15. Well Angel R. Llavona spends so much time on this Blog he is clearly on unemployment or one of those faking disability. That’s why he is a socialist.

    This guy couldn’t even spell Honor, Duty and your County.

    Hopefully when DACA is rescinded and we build that Wall we will rid this country of all of these entitlement moochers.

    Deport Illegals NOW!.

    Cancel DACA

  16. Good try but totally off the point. We can call ourselves anything and the right wing fanatics jump right ahead and call us communists. We are about the issues, not about fancy sounding names and labels. Our agenda is clear. We want an economy that works for all Americans, not a privileged few, and that implies a living wage as opposed to a starving wage where people are forced to work 2 or 3 jobs to survive; health care for all Americans instead of the racket where insurance companies CEO’s profit from the pain and suffering of the sick; the end of criminal wars, where war lords profit from the misery of the poor and disadvantaged around the world; free college tuition where higher education becomes accessible to all Americans instead of the privileged; Comprehensive Immigration Reform where immigrants and refugees are welcomed in this society instead of being ostracized and scapegoated by racist, insecure people; strong labor unions where a middle class can prosper; and criminal justice reform where minorities are not criminally targeted as part of a useless war on drugs, among others. In the meantime, the clock keeps ticking for republikkklans…64 days…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  17. Resounding success? Not surprised your standards are so low, Llavona.
    Your Blue Wave was nothing but an empty dark mud puddle. Much like our country would become if Socialism were to be adopted,

    The only resounding success today was the attendance at the movie house because there’s nothing else you can do on a rainy holiday.

  18. Llavona Lies, Unions suck, Socialism sucks!

    Communism Kills, and Trump was right again!


    Trump 2020!!!

  19. No more immigrants. Build the wall, make it tall, deport them all ! Free health care for illegals is not in the constitution. F**k them, fly them back to their respective sh*thole countries. Nobody is born with a living wage, you work your way up the economic ladder. Free college ? Who is going to pay for that you liberal twat ? Minorities commit the crime, that’s why they target them. I know, MS13 is just a bunch misunderstood teens who miss their mommies because they were separated at the border. And Angel dumbass, the KKK was a democrat group, not republican.

  20. Probably so poorly attended because people are getting smart enough to #walk away. Walk away to freedom! Hallelujah!

  21. “Private appropriation of the Earth’s surface, the natural resources, and the means of life is nothing less a crime than a crime against humanity, but the comparative few who are beneficiaries of this iniquitous social arrangement, far from being viewed as criminals meriting punishment, are the exalted rulers of society, and the people they exploit gladly render them homage and obeisance”. Eugene V. Debs…stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meow, meow, meeeeeoooooowwwwwwwww…

  22. Why did this group not simply played a videotape of Fidel Castro doing a speech? He is their hero.

  23. Who really runs the forces of destruction and darkness locally in McHenry County.

    Zahorik? Swanson?

    They hide like infesting insects.

    Here is my educational video for the week; Angel won’t appreciate it at all:

    “Black Panther: The Delusion of Wakanda”

  24. Hi Cal. That nice image for Labor Day on here… can you take it down please? That was the image I created years ago as a volunteer with what was then an independent group known as the McHenry County Progressives. At that time it was a bipartisan group who shared the opinion that politicians weren’t serving the people. Many of our group had no party affiliation at all.

    Myself and others were then removed during what amounted to a coup, going so far as to register that group name as a business and lock out eight founding board members. You can look it up on the Illinois business registry.

    So much for free thinkers, right?

    Anyway, it is time for them to truly move on and use their own resources and talents. We’ve moved on, too, and managed to retain a nonpartied view within a new group who actually support sanity and responsible governance from a ‘country over party’ approach.

    Thank you.
