Democratic Party Hijacked by Socialists

After watching the Democratic debates this week one thing is frighteningly clear — the DNC has been officially hijacked by socialist radicals intent on destroying our country and way of life as we know it.

Take the disastrous Green New Deal pushed by Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey and the unofficial leader of the Democratic Party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 29-year-old former bartender now calling the shots. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and the majority of the Democratic presidential candidates fully support the Green New Disaster and pledge to advance the massive government takeover of virtually every aspect of our lives.

Your car? Bye-bye. Flying on an airplane to visit relatives, take a family vacation or business trip? Not with backers of the GND in the White House. Radical liberals vying for the Oval Office want to annihilate the fossil fuel industry, making airplane travel and cars that run on gasoline obsolete. Then there’s the food industry. The GND doesn’t like flatulent cows, so if Trump isn’t re-elected, say adios to your backyard barbecue, for it’s only a matter of time before steak, hamburgers and hot dogs are replaced with government “approved” non-meat products.

Of course none of the far-left candidates understand, nor less care about the crushing economic impact to the U.S. economy as the GND is estimated to cost … wait for it … $100 trillion. Make no mistake, Americans will foot the tab. A new study released this week by Power the Future and Competitive Enterprise Institute reports that the GND will cost homeowners an additional $70,000 in the first year alone. After that homeowners will pay an extra $45,000 per year for the next four years. And for those living in Alaska it’s even worse. They will pay as high as $100,000 in year one alone as the gamut of Democratic presidential hopefuls, if elected, will proceed to eliminate all carbon producing products and industries.

Now also consider the tens of millions of jobs that will be eviscerated when the airline, auto, tourism and hotel industries are all brought to their knees. Americans working in those sectors who had jobs they liked will lose them, straining the welfare system.

What will that cost taxpayers?

Then there’s Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and other Democratic candidates who back “Medicare for All” which will eliminate the trillion-dollar private health care industry. Some 180 million Americans today who use private health insurance will be forced onto a government-run plan.

Reality check: If you think the wait times to get a doctor’s appointment are bad now, just wait until the entire country is forced onto Medicare. Oh, and let’s not forget all the Democrats who want to give “free” health care to millions of illegal immigrants to boot. How will that impact wait times for you and your family to get medical treatment — and at what cost when the tax man comes?

The majority of Democrats running for president also want to decriminalize illegal border crossings, which will incentivize millions more illegal immigrants to crush the porous southern border and enter with little to no penalty. Result? Tens of millions more will be added onto Medicare for All — on your dime.

Bottom line: President Trump is our last line of defense to save our country. If voters don’t mobilize on his behalf, say goodbye to freedom, your hard-earned money and America as we know it.
