The Democrat establishment has kneecapped Bernie Sanders (again!), but his ideas have saturated the party. The only question between them was “Which do we prefer–stealth socialism or openly-declared socialism?”
Oh. And capitalism equals “poverty,” don’t you know. So we’ve gotta shift to socialism. By which they mean communism.
Cortez has endorsed openly-avowed socialist Bernie Sanders for president (first he has to win the Democrat nomination). You know: that weird old guy who has raving Stalinists on his campaign staff who say they want to set up gulags for everyone who isn’t them, meanwhile threatening that cities “will burn” if their guy doesn’t get the nomination.
Why do I cover this stuff?
Because there are people–well-funded, and enthusiastically supported–who are working very hard to undermine our republic and our whole way of life, and “fundamentally transform” America into a socialist basket-case. And you need to know that.
They are all–all–coming at us via the Democrat Party, which is, indeed, a far-left party. We have national elections this year, and God help us if they win.
If you sit out this election, waiting for “the righteous candidate” who never comes, or throw your vote away on some third-party candidate who has absolutely no chance of winning, then you are helping the Democrats.
We can deal with corrupt and useless Republicans later. Job One is to defeat the Democrats so overwhelmingly that it will finish them off once and for all. For good!
Democrats want their socialist, globalist, climate cult dictatorship and will do almost anything to get it: so 2020 is going to be a brutal year and we’d better be ready for it.
As we have abundantly and distressingly learned since 2016, there really is a Deep State, it does not believe that the American people ought to be allowed to choose the president, its interests diverge from the general good and guess which one they favor, and the only dirty trick they didn’t try in that election was assassination itself.
They manufactured phony “evidence,” paid for by the Clinton campaign, they used it to deceive a court and obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign, bragged about a “coup” they intended to stage, harnessed the power of a monolithic and totally political nooze media, and have spent every day since Election Day of 2016 trying to overturn the results of that election. They haven’t stopped yet. They haven’t even paused.
They will destroy our republic, if that’s the only path they see to power. They don’t much like living in a republic anyway, unless it’s a soviet socialist republic.
It used to be just flashy rhetoric to liken Democrats to communists.
In the months to come, it will be increasingly necessary to explain why socialism is immoral, and not an option for the Christian. Democrats have all but tattooed socialism on their skins from head to to; and in 2020 they must be defeated.
So what’s morally wrong with socialism? R.J. Rushdoony explained it in his book, Law and Liberty, published posthumously in 2009. The essay is an excerpt from Chapter 20.
