Is any of the above different from what the vast majority of Democratic candidates are proposing? Has the Democratic party become the communist party?” full article: here
I’ve had this discussion with several people of the last few years. As expected, they grow: annoyed, agitate, angry and then flower into full-blown denial, that anyone could come their “beloved” Democrats to Communist. But, as usual, the proof is in the facts.
This has been the goal of Democrats for many generals. FDR “social” security program and “new deal” with a grand implementation of communist ideals . . . with the hatchet job of “obamacare” on the Constitution and free people, it has grown drastically worse.
It’s easier to control the illiterate and the ignorant so it’s no surprise that the Democrat controlled Unions do the bidding of the Federal government Democrats. Sets the mouse trap up and wait for the mice — that has been the working agenda of the Democrats for a long time. Government dependents will vote for more goodies to be provided by Liberals and Democrats.
The next time you consider voting for a Democrat, any Democrat, or a Liberal promising you goodies from the government: think. You’re the mouse waiting to be trapped and thus ensuring your own demise.
