The rise of socialism as the basis for the Democratic Party’s doctrine going into the 2020 election is forcing more moderate Democrats like John Hickenlooper and John Delaney to take a backseat to the radicals running for their party’s nomination. Marxist policies are manifesting themselves under the guise of “Democratic Socialism” pushed by many, especially Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
We’ve long noted that the Democratic Party’s chances of retaining some semblance of sanity may rely on former Vice President Joe Biden. But even Biden is being forced to lurch to the left. Relatively small issues such as supporting the Hyde Amendment have the hyper-leftists of the party screaming for him to step away and let the new radicals take over the party.
One America News host Graham Ledger discussed it on The Daily Ledger today, noting that the origins of our nation rested on a belief in fighting people who shared the same taxation ideology as Democratic candidates like Warren. As he noted, the Constitution itself was intended to protect us from the rise of people like Warren, people who are bent on taking everything they can from the people so they can give some of it back to other people. Some.
Unfortunately, the narrative is working, at least for leftists. They’re embracing the ideology and denying that it’s ever failed before despite unambiguous examples of how it has failed every time anyone tried to implement it. In fact, one need only look at the shining example Sanders used to point to as how socialism worked: Venezuela. It’s not working so well anymore.
As more Democrats embrace the failed ideologies of people like Elizabeth Warren, they’re failing to understand the implications of how they’re planning to vote. If they like they’re socialism, they can keep their socialism. Just not here.
