Trump Rejects Socialism in State of the Union Address
In what will likely go down as an historic statement in American History, President Trump clearly, concisely, and unequivocally rejected socialism for America. He stated in his 2019 State of the Union address that America was founded on freedom and not on government control. In the president’s words:
“America was founded on liberty and independence and not government coercion, domination and control … We are born free and we will stay free.”
No doubt this rejection was tough for Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to handle. They have been promoting socialism for some time now, along with a number of democrats running for their party’s presidential nomination.
Is the Democratic Party Now the Party of Socialism?
As more and more democrats seek their party’s nomination for president, it sounds more and more like the future of the Democratic Party is actually socialism.
Recall that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, outspoken proponent of socialism, has been called the “future of our party” by DNC Chair Tom Perez.
If the rules of the Democratic Party in 2016 were not tilted toward Hillary Clinton because of the 609 super-delegates she had, Bernie Sanders would likely have won the nomination. In many ways, the Democratic Party was moving toward socialist policies in 2016.
Lots of Democratic Party Presidential Candidates and Lots of Socialist Policies
Here are some of the 36 potential Democratic Party presidential candidates that have announced their intentions to run, have created exploratory committees, or have been discussed as potential candidates:
- Sen. Cory Booker
- Sen. Kirsten Gillebrand
- Sen. Kamala Harris
- Sen. Elizabeth Warren
- Sen. Bernie Sanders
- Sen. Sherrod Brown
- Sen. Amy Klouchar
- Sen. Jeff Merkley
- Sen. Michael Bennet
Note that these are just some of the current U. S. Senators that might be on the final list of presidential candidates.
Here’s another list of some socialist positions taken by some democrats on the potential list of presidential candidates:
- Eliminate all private health insurance
- Climate change and expensive “Green” policies
- Universal pre-kindergarten
- Free college tuition
- Open borders
- Abolish I.C.E.
- Tax hikes
- Reparations for slavery
- Universal basic income for all Americans
The Future of the Democratic Party and Its Ultimate Demise as a Viable Major Political Party
It’s true that the Democratic Party continues to adopt extreme, leftist positions and it’s true that the Democratic Party will likely become a socialist party. However, such a radical position will not work in America. Freedom, not government control, is in the DNA of American voters.
As I have predicted for several years, the Democratic Party is heading to extinction as a major political party in the United States. Just as other political parties have come and gone in our history, the Democratic Party is close to its demise. It will probably shut down and its current supporters will scatter and be absorbed into other fringe political parties.
