Here Come the Socialists!

Democratic Socialists of America now claim to have more than 25,000 members, making it the largest socialist group in the U.S. since World War II.

“Since the election, tens of thousands of democratic socialists have come together to build a future for this country in which everyone has the right to a decent job, a good home, a free college education for their children, and healthcare for their family,” Maria Svart, National Director of DSA, said in a statement.

The group said that they have grown more than 300 percent from the roughly 8,000 members they had at this time last year.

The total membership is still very small but the growth does not surprise me. It will accelerate.

From the DSA web site:
DSA at 24,000 members in July 2017 is the largest socialist organization in the United States since the Communist Party before its implosion in 1956 after the Khrushchev revelations about Stalin. Most young people joining the organization want to be active, and our new chapters across the country have already incorporated thousands of members into activist projects.
Trump with his non-ideological, anti-trade, mercantilist, uninformed central planning instincts has co-opted what could have been the opposition to socialism and the planned economy.

Instead, we only have opposition to the buffoonish Trump from across the left. They are capturing the attention of the youth and those of all ages that want something different.

Trump should be called out every time he takes an anti-free market, centrally planned position. The curious need to be made aware that the choices are not only between left central planning, Trump buffoonery, and crony establishment Republicans but that there is a liberty alternative.

Otherwise, the DC swamp is going to turn into a socialist pond, then a socialist lake and then a socialist ocean. It takes decades and millions upon millions dead to drain a socialist ocean.



  1. Rather a big lie, but expected from socialists. How can they rectify radical democracy with individual liberty? Answer: they can't

  2. They lie about everything fullwell knowing they obtain many of their progress through slouth, apathy, and not being challenged in any meaningful way by the commoner masses
