Imprimis, Frank Buckley, September, 2016
In the Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels wrote that “the history of all hitherto existing societies is the history of class struggles.” Today the story of American politics is the story of class struggles. It wasn’t supposed to be that way. We didn’t think we were divided into different classes. Neither did Marx.
America was an exception to Marx’s theory of social progress. By that theory, societies were supposed to move from feudalism to capitalism to communism. But the America of the 1850s, the most capitalist society around, was not turning communist. Marx had an explanation for that. “True enough, the classes already exist,” he wrote of the United States, but they “are in constant flux and reflux, constantly changing their elements and yielding them up to one another.” In other words, when you have economic and social mobility, you don’t go communist.
That is the country in which some imagine we still live, Horatio Alger’s America—a country defined by the promise that whoever you are, you have the same chance as anyone else to rise, with pluck, industry, and talent. But they imagine wrong. The U.S. today lags behind many of its First World rivals in terms of mobility. A class society has inserted itself within the folds of what was once a classless country, and a dominant New Class—as social critic Christopher Lasch called it—has pulled up the ladder of social advancement behind it.
One can measure these things empirically
Please Remember the statements attributed to Trump occurred when he was a democrat. He was in the company of democrats and "when Rome do as the Romans do" applies to this situation.
He was just talking like democrats of the time talked (AKA Billy Clinton)
Trump; like Reagan, had an awakening and became a Republican. I do not think any tapes of a similar nature are available since he has become a Republican. The tapes do not exist because Trump does not speak that way anymore - after all he is not a democrat anymore!!!
The American Crisis (1776)
In the fall of 1776, the American army lost to British forces at Long Island (NY), White Plains (NY), Ft. Washington and Ft. Lee. Historians estimate over 500 Americans were killed and over 4000 American soldiers were taken prisoner. The British captured over 100 cannon and 1000’s of muskets. Present at Ft. Lee, and serving as aide to General Nathanael Green, was Thomas Paine. In December 1776, Thomas Paine later recalled, “I sat down, and in what I may call a passion of patriotism, wrote the first number of the [American] ‘Crisis.’”
“THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value… Not a man lives on the continent but fully believes that a separation [from Great Britain] must some time or other finally take place… I am as confident, as I am that God governs the world, that America will never be happy ‘till she gets clear of foreign dominion…
I call not upon a few, but upon all: not on this state or that state, but on every state: up and help us… better [to] have too much force than too little, when so great an object is at stake… The heart that feels not now is dead; [and] the blood of his children will curse his cowardice, who shrinks back at a time when a little might have saved the whole, and made them happy. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.” Thomas Paine, The [American] Crisis No. 1, December 23, 1776

“Not all the treasures of the world, so far as I believe, could have induced me to support an offensive war [making the first attack], for I think it murder; but if a thief breaks into my house, burns and destroys my property, and kills or threatens to kill me… am I to suffer [allow] it?” Thomas Paine, The [American] Crisis No. 1, December 23, 1776
A lifelong Democrat, I’m backing Trump because he can shake up our politics and revive the economy.
I have been steeped in the Democratic Party all my life. My father, Jerry, was a New York City Democratic chairman and power broker, and I grew up in and around the Democratic Party. When I was a young man, former senators and Democratic presidential and vice-presidential nominees Hubert Humphrey and Estes Kefauver stayed at my apartment and we would proudly discuss the great traditions of the Democratic Party.
My father was a pallbearer at St. Patrick’s for Bobby Kennedy’s funeral. When I was young, Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy were (and remain) my political heroes. Four years ago, former New York Gov. and liberal lion Mario Cuomo spoke at my father’s funeral. I think his son, current Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is a very effective leader.
I was elected five times to the New York state Assembly as a Democrat. In 1977, I beat David Dinkins and Robert Wagner Jr. in the election for borough president of Manhattan, and then was elected twice as City Council president.
With this background it is very hard for me not to support the Democratic nominee for president this year. But I believe my party has become the party of the elites and moneyed class and has deserted its historic mission as the party of the working class and disadvantaged.
Given my level of discomfort with the current leftist orientation of the Democratic Party, I am now supporting Republican nominee Donald Trump for president. I urge
