    If you wish to understand where the Democrat party wants to take the nation study the FDR admin.

      …and how he won four elections with that agenda.


    “…policies defining modern-day democratic socialism: Medicare for all, a
    $15 minimum wage, free college tuition and the abolition of the federal
    department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also known as ICE.”

    What’s this? Nobody likes medicare! Give a “Cadillac” insurance plan to all! And $15 an hour? Who can live on that? I can’t. I say $30 and guaranteed annual raises that exceed the inflation rate. Free college? No, a free diploma from the college of your choice. And yes, eliminate ICE, but also free transportation to anyone, from anywhere, to the USA. The democratic socialists claim to be for the people. HA!! I’m – FOR THE PEEPLE!

    (In case it’s not obvious, this is satire.)

      At least in Heaven, we get all things for free. But down on earth, we’ve got to work for it.

    The democratic communist party, means they are in total control and living high on the hog, while we the people live like rats in the garbage dump, its time to wake up before its to late and you lose your rights and end up in the dump.

    I wonder if socialist would vote to socialize material wealth and goods in private networks instead of the states coffers. What gives them so much confidence in State officials?
