Ralph Reiland is right; the Democrats are indeed the party of envy.
And the Democrats get a double hit by playing the envy card. The first and most obvious is envy’s appeal to those who feel slighted by society or nature. The liberal message to these people is: “Envy the rich, envy the successful, envy the middle class, envy men, envy white skin.”
But what makes this deadly sin such an effective political force is that joined with the above mentioned group is another distinct group that, too, is motivated by envy… or more specifically, motivated by the fear of envy.
These are the liberals and many well-to-dos. They don’t envy others as much as they are responding to the deep primordial human fear of being envied. And it is this fear that compels liberals to denigrate their race, the success of their forefathers, their civilization, their nation, and even religion.

The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
