The Democrat Party is Now the Socialist Party

, ,


Jim Geraghty watched last night’s democrat debate, and observes that it proved one important thing: the democrats have become an openly socialist party. The democrat road to office is based entirely on social division and class warfare.

Sure, this batch of candidates sounded like a bunch of loons. They contended socialism is mostly about standing up to the richest one percent and promoting entrepreneurs and small business; climate change is the biggest national security threat facing the nation; college educations should be free for everyone; all lives don’t matter, black lives do; Obama is simultaneously an enormously successful president in managing the economy and the middle class is collapsing and there’s a need for a “New New Deal” which is in fact an Old Old Idea, considering how FDR called for a Second New Deal in 1935. The audience in Nevada applauded higher taxes, believes that Hillary Clinton doesn’t need to answer any more questions, supports the complete shutdown of the NSA domestic surveillance program, and that Obamacare benefits should be extended to illegal immigrants. There are kindergarten classes with more realistic assessments of cost-benefit tradeoffs than the crowd watching this debate at the Wynn Las Vegas.

So yes, the candidates sounded like hard-Left, pie-in-the-sky, free-ice-cream-for-everyone, Socialist pander bears. But they do so because that is what the Democratic Party’s primary voters demand. Don’t blame them; blame the party rank-and-file that craves these promises, rhetoric, and worldview.

Great to see we have descended to Imperial Rome standards when everyone there last night was trying to outbread and games everyone else.

Once they’ve destroyed the economy and our way of life, everybody will be reduced to an equal level of desperation and destitution; and will be much easier to control.


The Democrat party has indeed become socialist but it has been for decades. It is only recently that they no longer hide it. Either they think this resonates with 51% of voters or they know something I don’t because socialism/communism should be a guaranteed tip to the losers circle. Maybe Hillary is so desperate that she thinks promising free stuff to illegal aliens and taxing the rich to pay for it will gain her more votes than it loses. Maybe this is what our future is; taxing Americans into poverty to give free stuff for illegals so they will vote Democrat.


The last time the party was this blatant was 1972 and some of us remember what happened then. On the other hand there is no question that the culture of the country has changed in the last 40 years. The predominate ethic then was that it was your responsibility to take care of yourself. There are clearly more people today who think it should be someone else’s responsibility. Whether it’s a majority, I don’t know.

I would think the best strategy for the GOP candidate would be to hit it head on: If you think it’s the government’s job to provide you with free food, free rent, free cellphones, free health care and free tuition, then you should vote for Hillary. If that doesn’t sell, then we’re all sort of doomed anyway.
