Democratic Party – Is It Now the Socialist Party?

With regard to the future of the Democratic Party, in my book Great News for America published in 2016, I asked this important question:

“Will We See the Democratic Party (as we know it) End in 2016?

My prediction at the time was: “Yes, it is highly likely that before, during or after the critical presidential election of 2016 season, the Democratic Party (as we know it) will end in 2016.  The current fracturing of the Democratic Party will continue unabated, until it is completely redefined or until it ceases to exist.” [1]

That prediction has been coming true since then! Indeed, the Democratic Party, as we knew it, is long gone and is now effectively the Democratic Socialist Party or simply, the Socialist Party. The evidence it has become the Socialist Party is clear and convincing, unequivocal, and overwhelming! Let’s look at this new Democratic (Turned Socialist) Party.

Democratic Party – It’s Not the Party of Working Class Americans and the Poor; It’s the Party of the Rich and the Elite

In the past, the Democratic Party was known for its appeal to working class Americans and the poor. Democrats championed minorities. They were juxtaposed against the so-called country club Republicans and corporate business interests.

Now, it’s quite different. The Socialist Party is controlled by media elites, academic and university elites, teacher union members pushing critical race theory on  our youth elites, billionaire elites, corporate elites, high tech elites, and entrenched Washington elites that could never stomach the threat of an outsider, populist. like President Donald Trump, who was loved by ordinary Americans come in and run America.

In the minds of the elites, Trump had to be stopped at all costs. It risked the elites running the whole show in Washington.

Americans are getting tired of the elites too. Victor David Hansen captured the raw feelings of the average American voter with these succinct words:

“Do we need another performance-art sermon on America’s innate unfairness from billionaire entertainers such as Beyonce, Jay-Z or Oprah Winfrey, or from multimillionaire Delta or Coca-Cola CEOs?” [6]

Democratic Party – Out of Sync with the American Voter on Issue after Issue

The Democratic Party is totally out of touch with the American Voter on one issue after another issue. Consider these issues that impact most Americans:

  • Run-away government spending and higher taxes – versus smaller government spending and lower taxes that Americans seek
  • High inflation throughout most of our economy from lumber to bacon, from home prices to our grocery stores – versus no or low inflation and stable prices that Americans really want
  • Bad energy policies that lead to higher costs at the gas pump and higher home heating and air conditioning costs – versus maintaining stable energy costs
  • Foolhardy illegal immigration policies that allow drugs and criminals and hundreds of thousands of immigrants into the country desperately in need of welfare benefits – versus an organized flow of new immigrants who bring in much needed skills into America
  • Immigration policies designed to encourage a permanent Democratic Socialist Party of the poor, who vote for socialists to assure needed welfare benefits for ever
  • Election Policies that enable ease of voter theft and voter fraud – versus what the American s – Free, Fair, Honest and Transparent Elections

Democratic Party – Believes in Censorship, Not the First Amendment and Free Speech

Consider some examples of what the Democratic Party has been doing in 2021 according to The Wall Street Journal:

“… Democrats Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney sent letters pressing 12 cable and tech CEOs to drop contracts with right-of-center media outlets including Fox News. Two days later the Energy and Commerce Committee held a hearing about “disinformation and extremism” in conservative media. The only notable extremism on display was the majority party’s appetite for regulating and policing the free press.” [2]

The Hill reported that:

“Representative Adam Schiff sent a message to the executives of Google, Twitter, and YouTube demanding censorship of anything deemed “misinformation” and “false information.” [3]

Or, consider the recent press briefing by Jen Psaki:

“QUESTION: … flagging of disinformation … there’s also some reporting that we’ve had that Facebook maybe hasn’t been as proactive as the White House would like it to be in response to some of the flagging “

“MS. PSAKI:  Sure.  Well, I would say first, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that we’re in regular touch with social media platforms”

“And we work to engage with them to better understand the enforcement of social media platform policies.”

QUESTION:   And then has Facebook been as proactive as the White House would like in terms of its response to those flags?

MS. PSAKI:  Well, I think, as I noted yesterday, Phil, there is more — there are more steps that everyone can take.  

You shouldn’t be banned from one platform and not others if you — for providing misinformation out there. 

BOTTOM LINE: The White House is working with social media companies to identify, flag and remove content The White House  deems to be misinformation from their point of view. Removing such information is CENSORSHIP and clearly violates Americans’ FREE SPEECH rights under the First Amendment. [4]

But, the censorship and the limitations on Free Speech doesn’t even stop there with the undue pressure placed by Democrats on social media. Politico reported that the Biden administration plans to monitor so-called “misinformation” in the text messages of individuals. That’s an incredible level of direct interference in American’s Freedom of Speech. [5]

Real World Socialism – Understand the Top Political Issue of Our Day

Dr. Lameiro correctly predicted in early 2019 that socialism would be the #1 political issue in 2020, and he was right!

Real World Socialism, Dr. Lameiro’s sixth and most popular book (available on Amazon and through other booksellers), correctly discusses many of the battles we are witnessing in 2021 between socialism and freedom. Importantly, Real World Socialism presents the main powerful reasons why freedom, free markets, and capitalism are far superior to socialism.

Real World Socialism is a comprehensive, tour de force of the history of socialism, including the many variations and names it has taken on over the centuries, as well as how socialism has failed miserably in both theory and practice. It also highlights the reasons socialists argue for socialist planning and policies, and why those arguments collapse in the real world.

Real World Socialism is a perfect gift for high school and college students that have to put up with Marxist and socialist teachers and professors, attempting to indoctrinate them with socialist and communist ideas. It’s also a great book for you to read to understand America today and how to help America survive the Biden-Harris-Democratic Party pushing America in unwanted socialism.
