Democrats Have a Socialist Problem in 2016
In recent years, the Democratic Party has vehemently denied accusations of socialism. In 2008, Democrats insisted it was ridiculous to call Obama a socialist.
In 2009, taxpayer funded National Public Radio lampooned conservative concerns about socialism in America with an article and video titled Learn To Speak Tea Bag…
It’s so funny how that worked out with the Tea Party and the IRS, isn’t it?
There are two Democrats running for president in 2016. Vermont senator Bernie Sanders identifies openly as a socialist. At least he’s honest about it.
Hillary Clinton doesn’t claim to be a socialist but her contempt for the United States Constitution betrays her true intentions.

Hillary Wants The Power to Ban Books and Movies That Criticize Her
Hillary Clinton says that as president, she would have a litmus test for Supreme Court nominees: they must promise to vote to overturn the Citizens United case.
It is easy to understand why Hillary isn’t fond of Citizens United. The case involved a film called Hillary: The Movie that was critical of her. In Citizens United, the Supreme Court held that it was unconstitutional to criminalize showings of Hillary within 30 days of a primary or 60 days of a general election, simply because the movie (like all movies) was produced by a corporation.
The progressive base has pushed Democrats so far left that they’re indistinguishable from socialists.

Democrat Party Official: We Need To Include The Socialist Party “Because They Are On Our Side”
Even though it’s obvious to anyone who cares to notice the Democratic Party, and Socialists, have been following the same Progressive track for years. But to hear a Democrat Party official actually admit it is still somewhat unnerving.
Socialist Ksama Sawant, the first openly Socialist person elected to the Seattle City Council, is once again running for office. But it seems that support from several local well known Democrats are causing a rift in the Party of the “Donkey”.
Socialism is what the Democratic Party’s base wants.
Unlike the 2008 election, Democrats can no longer hide behind claims that their interest in socialism is just a smear from the right. Their party is running a socialist candidate and pushing the other to the same place.
Questions in their 2016 debates should reflect this because it’s a fact.
The Democrats are a socialist party.
They can no longer deny the charge.
