I refer, of course, to North Korea. No Constitution, no free market, no capitalism, no private property, and unfettered centralized government. No individual rights, no state's rights, no rights of any kind.

How do I know that North Korea is the inevitable result of the hard left Democrat Party's policies? Because Democrats can't articulate any limits on their vision of centralized government. None.

They won't tell us how much more of our private property they want to confiscate in taxes. They won't tell us when they'll stop ringing up trillion-dollar deficits. They won't tell us when they will stop centralizing control of society in Washington in pursuit of Utopia.

They won't share their blueprint for society. They won't tell us their endgame.

Because they don't have one. They're making it up as they go along, subverting the Constitution in a naked pursuit of power. And over the long haul, North Korea is where we're headed.

Donald Rumsfeld kept similar comparison photos on his desk ( the desk once belonged to General Black Jack Pershing ) at the Pentagon. He said it was there to remind himself of the difference between our system of economics/ government and theirs. Every one should have a set. ( of photos )

And look at how much more the rest of the world is glowing. How much PROGRESS they've made in under two decades.

Meanwhile, Pyongyang(the only visible spot in North Korea)has gotten a little bit brighter. Everything else remains in darkness.

"Progressives." Their very name is a slap in the face of the truth.

What fantastic photos! One only one whose lust for power and worship of themselves eclipsed all else could possibly champion any sort of collectivist regulation at the expense of individual liberty after seeing this.

Here is a quote from an essay by Ross McKitrick, Professor of Economics, University of Guelph, that ties in with this subject:
"Abundant, cheap electricity has been the greatest source of human liberation in the 20th century."
