The abolition of private health insurers as well as the confiscation of AR-15’s being topics of conversation amongst the Democratic candidates running for President and lower offices throughout the country is both mind boggling and horrifying. Ten years ago Democrats were arguing that they never wanted to take the country in a socialist direction and now they are taking instructions almost directly out of the Communist Manifesto.
The “C” word was something I told myself never to resort to when discussing differences of policy with progressives, but if the comrade fits, they are probably a communist. It is easy for network commentators to throw that word around without a care of what it actually means, but we are facing a point in time where the realization that there are literal socialists in positions of power will only lead to the day where we have elected officials at different levels of government throughout the country come out and say proudly “I’m a communist.”
What are reasons I have come to this conclusion? the fact comes from the Communist Manifesto itself, which abolishes choice in the market and instead subjugates the citizenry into forcible welfare programs not for the sake of providing universal coverage out of the goodness of their heart, but to control the means of distribution and otherwise make choices that should only be made between a patient and their doctor. It was only a year ago the world wept as baby Charley in England was sentenced to death despite extraordinary efforts to save him. That is the key to the state’s monopoly of power, if they sentence you to die, you die unless you run for your life.
It used to be that Democrat policies always allowed to some degree, input from the state level, but now we have candidates running for office saying that if the state’s go against their will they will simply run orders like a hammer down through executive fiat. No checks, no balances, no choices left in the new world progress brought to you by gunpoint.
Maybe this is the future of the Democratic party, a partisan faction so far off the rails that they are receiving open praise from devout members of the Communists. Or, it’s a very heavy political realignment in which the party riding a train to one end of the tracks will have to turn home once it realizes that its voters got off the train far back.
