No, I do not suggest that I know the exhaustive answer to that question, but I do have an opinion and sense of some things they are up to. Most of us on the Right and those who support the Constitution in its Original Intent see the dramatic shift of the Democratic Party to the Extreme Left. In my view, they no longer hide from the Socialism identifier. How Americans at any socioeconomic level could embrace Socialism is a bit puzzling but there appear to be millions who are buying the line and taking the bait hook line and sinker.
I am convinced that one of the reasons some are buying into the Socialism Freebies push is because of envy, greed, and a sense of entitlement or desert. They believe they are owed something and deserve it. In that mindset, they have been indoctrinated that the rich are evil and somehow have stolen from them or suppressed them, therefore, the rich owe them a portion of their wealth. The blindness manufactured and inspired by the liberal leftist professors, activist, media types, and politicians have generated class envy and hate that restricts the use of logic and reason. Emotion is the weapon of the Leftists not reason. Emotion can be brought to the boiling point and make one reactive rather than proactive.
I am convinced that the new faces of the Democratic Party which can rightly be called the New Democratic Socialist Party are not only making waves but pushing for a purging within their ranks. That purging is to rid the Democratic Party of all who hold any moderate view and are not on board with the Socialist agenda being advanced as the 2020 mantra of their party.
I was somewhat encouraged recently when 26 Democrats supported the Republican amendment to the ‘gun control’ bill. It infuriated the leadership and ignited the Far-Left members of Congress as well as their base. The calls for their destruction were immediate and the threats issued were severe and serious. The Republicans lacked the votes to defeat the Democrat bill to expand federal background checks for all purchases, so they offered an amendment that was palatable to some moderate Democrats.
The amendment was a requirement that ICE be notified if an illegal immigrant sought to purchase a firearm. Why would the Left not want that to be included? Two reasons come to mind. One, they do not want any exposure of illegals. Two, they do not truly want to enhance the ability of law enforcement to protect Americans. They want more than background checks they want the 2nd Amendment repealed or replaced.
Gun control is not my focus in this article, but the planned and desired purging of the ranks of the New Democratic Socialist Party of all Moderates is. Heaven forbid a Democrat should actually be Conservative or a Constitutionalist. Those must be purged lest the Party face the danger of Americans waking up to the scam and snake oil they are selling in their Socialism, Climate Change, Globalism push.
After the vote, the new darling of the Left, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez issued a threat to put all the Democrats who voted with the Republicans on “a list.” What kind of list? What does that mean? What is the threat? Her threat was that she would work to unseat them in the 2020 primaries and replace them with an extremist like herself. Does she have that much power? Are her threats backed by enough support and power to be taken seriously by the moderates? She is, according to a member of her staff, compiling a list to be forwarded to liberal activist groups and encouraging them to go on the attack against the moderate Democrats.
During the eight years that Republicans held a majority in the House from 2011 through January of this year, they did not lose a single procedural vote the Democrats tried to use to force them into precarious political positions. On the flip side, the Democrats have already lost two such votes and that has inspired the infighting within the party and hopefully, it will expose the true colors of the Left and cause the moderates from largely conservative districts to resist and push back. Will, that mean that the Republicans and America can win against the insane drive of the Left to ‘fundamentally transform’ America into a Socialist Nation and damage our individual liberties and inalienable rights? Time will tell.
I am somewhat encouraged by family members of some of the most extreme Democratic Leftists dressing them down publicly. Will, that change the minds of those leftists? Not likely, but it may open the eyes of some voters who still occasionally use their cognitive skills of reason and logic. Senator Kamala Harris was rebuked by her own father for perpetrating the stereotype of Jamaicans as potheads. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was also rebuked by her mother over her Socialism lunacy. Her mother informed the Daily Mail that she moved from New York to Florida to get away from the intolerably high taxes of New York.
Her mother’s statement: “I was cleaning houses in the morning and working as a secretary at a hospital in the afternoon. I was working from 6 am until 11 pm. And I prayed and prayed, and things worked out. After the children graduated from college, I figured it was time for me to move to Florida.’ She then said, that it was a no-brainer, and added, “I was paying $10,000 a year in real estate taxes up north. I’m paying $600 a year in Florida. It’s stress-free down here.”
AOC is joined by the myriad of liberal Democratic Socialist running for President in 2020 who are all are Green Deal Proponents, Freebies, Socialism, higher Taxes, and Government Control. Her juvenile language is troubling enough calling for the ‘tippy tops’ to pay more and failing to realize that increased taxes on any sector affects every sector of our society and economy. Her plan is strange for anyone with any knowledge of economics, but for an economics major in college, this is a total disconnect with reality.
The U.S. Census Bureau has reported that New York State lost 180,306 people and gained only 131,746 between July 2017 and July 2018. That is a net loss of 48,560 people which represented the largest loss of any state. The ideas presented by AOC and the rest of the Democrats is toxic, poisonous and will destroy our economy and allow the government to take more control and bring about their desired ‘fundamental transformation’.
We need to pray that more Moderate Democrats will run in those districts where a Republican has zero chance of winning. We need to encourage the moderates within the Democratic ranks to THINK and do what is best for America not what is best for the power-hungry political elitists. We need to find candidates who can articulate conservatism, constitutionalism, and the evils of Socialism and its inherent dangers. It is my conviction that America’s survival is hanging in the balance and I call for all who pray to join me in serious and earnest specific praying for America.
We Conservatives and Constitutionalist can win if we unite! We will lose if we continue our sectarian divide and insist on having our way in everything. Lovers of America and Freedom I plead with you to find a way to unite and take a firm stand for our Republic. We will never find a candidate that embodies everything we desire so let’s find the ones who will stand without flinching for America and Americans.
God bless you and God bless America!
