What is it that Conservatives have been saying since the very start of the 2020 race for the White House? If the Democrats won, it would provide a foothold for socialism to entrench itself in the “land of the free and the home of the brave.”
And what were we told by the Left in response? They insisted that we were crazy.
We were told that the Left doesn’t want socialism. Leftists just want more social programs and have our government deal with the social injustices of the world—but they absolutely do not want socialism.
Of course, very few of us bought that malarky.
Even though they tried to dress it up with a new age term like “democratic socialism,” we knew that there was no such thing.
Almost ALL socialism starts as “democratic socialism,” but eventually devolves into true socialism, where only the elected and elite get what they want, and the rest of us have to fight for every penny we make.
There’s a reason people in Venezuela are eating out of the garbage while Maduro dines in the fanciest restaurants around the world.
This Is Exactly Why We Didn’t Want Biden To Win
That’s the biggest reason why we didn’t want Joe Biden in the White House.
Any Conservative or Libertarian knew that the Left has designs on instituting socialism into the United States. Joe Biden was the easily-manipulated key to its arrival, while Trump became the symbol for keeping our democratic republic intact.
Now that most signs point to a Biden presidency, it looks like we were right after all.
The socialists are absolutely angling to push the empty vessel of Joe Biden to institute socialism, and the effort is starting with the biggest socialist of them all: Senator Bernie Sanders.
While he didn’t win the Democratic nomination, he sure does have a lot of influence on that side of the aisle.
So, when he sat down with CNN’s Jake Tapper recently, we knew he was going to use that influence to pressure Biden and the other moderate Democrats to bend the knee.
Sanders told Tapper, “I sometimes find it amusing when our opponents talk about the far-Left agenda. The truth is that when you talk about raising the minimum wage to 15 bucks an hour, when you’re talking about expanding healthcare to all people as a human right, when you talk about effectively taking on climate change, when you talk about making public colleges and universities tuition-free, these are not far-Left ideas. These are commonsense ideas that the majority of the American people support.”
That’s great, Bernie…
But they’re NOT commonsense ideas, nor are they embraced by the majority. Climate change was relatively LOW on the list of priorities for voters this cycle. There are also a LOT of people on the Left who feel the same way we do on the Right: NOTHING should be “free” because nothing IS free. It’s all paid for by OUR taxes.
How Bernie Could Force Socialism On Americans
People like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez think that taxes are just some treasure trove that magically appears… but that’s not how this works. That money is taken from the American people, and people are going to have a lot more money taken from them now that it looks like Biden is going to be in the Oval Office.
However, that’s not the part of Sanders’ interview that we need to pay attention to. This is: “I fully expect that the Biden administration will be advocating those proposals that they agreed to…We’re going to fight to make sure that they’re implemented.”
Oh, we fully expect you to, Bern, especially when you say, “I talked to the Biden administration. I want to do my best in whatever capacity as a senator or in the administration to protect the working families of this country.”
And there it is.
Sanders going to use his influence with the far-Left in order to get a job that ENSURES he’s able to press that influence on not only Creepy Joe but the American people as well.
This could be bad, folks…
