Democratic Socialists of America Membership Surges After Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Victory

Recommended Posts

Interesting development...but I would guess a whole bunch of people didn't give a crap, and thus failed to vote, because it was a primary election.

I heard a cast member on Fox & Friends this morning referring to “our democracy” .🤬

 

That puts a burr under my saddle every time I hear the phrase and especially from (so-called) educated people!

The country is ripping itself from within.   Nobody but a few percent actually care about the founder's dream.

 

That may well be correct, but...It only took 56 signatures to start the War of Independence...and maybe 3 percent of the population cared to fight for it...but they still won. One percent of the voting population could restore the founders' Constitution back without firing a shot, but there would be a huge fight afterwards...

We had France and Dutch to thank for the win.

What is your point Megatron? 

 

You think our Republic isn’t worth the effort?  You think because we had other countries helping our fighting didn’t count? 

 

My family has been here before it was America, since 1660. I have 6 American Revolutionary War direct ancestors. One walked home from the Seige of Yorktown. 

 

Maybe America doesn’t mean much to some but for me, it’s personal.

Because valor is genetic?   I simple stated that it wasn't just our militia and small military that won the war.  We had French German and dutch troops with their backing of supplies and money.   That's what won the war because they seen it as a good chance to put hurt to their rivial.

 

Sure it's with saving if you can keep it.  Unfortunately we at this point have let the government become tyrannical.   I don't see you fighting when every new gun laws violated the second amendment.   Or the fact that we are taxed to death.

People as a majority don't even care about it.   Meaning that they won't fight nor could they. Gun ownership is rather small    breaking it down further less train with it.  Even less stock ammo with it.  

The country needs a hard restart.  Will it work in our favor or someone's else's.  Is the question.   Most likely you won't see the same country and state lines come back.  We might be sectioned off and the Looney liberal left might be in one area and the rest goes to the right. 

 

Please don't use the I'll die for this country and you never once enlisted and completed the basic requirements of the military.   It's just fluffy words that your milita might cheer about.  I just think unless your actually faced with a do or die moment which most haveent you won't choose death.

Patton stated don't die for your country kill them and make them die for yours.  If your dead you cannot fight.   It's the romantically side people put with war.  Reality war is moments of intense action with never ending boredom.   However you will be always jacked up on adrenaline and that is where the body reprogram itself.   That is one of the reasons people struggle with coming home.

o yeah brother rip its and nicotine....yeah I love that quote from patton but were talkin people from are own country...so im gonna back step death here and quote Sherman

Quote

The North can make a steam engine, locomotive or railway car; hardly a yard of cloth or a pair of shoes can you make. You are rushing into war with one of the most powerful, ingeniously mechanical and determined people on earth - right at your doors. You are bound to fail. Only in spirit and determination are you prepared for war. In all else you are totally unprepared, with a bad cause to start with.William Tecumseh Sherman

but instead of the north of course I mean left...

The Dem Socialists of America have made scary gains in the last couple of years. Primarily in larger urban centers (where there is a higher concentration of old hippies and very young people). That is not always the case though. Four of the won ballot slots in the Pennsylvania legislature primary election this last May. Now that the "older" Dem party feels threatened and is pushing back it's going to be interesting to see how this plays out.  IMHO whomever has the best ground game at turning voters out among the factions is going to come out on top.

It's the same party values just the inner party is getting bolder and louder.  They always have been this way.   Fdr was a extreme facist.

What about it.  I am tired if reading I'll die for this and I'll fight tyrannical government when it comes knocking.   Truth be told it's been here for the last 100 years.  What have you done to fight the gun rights you lost.  You buy that machine gun from the magazine shipped to your door today nope....

 

I won't die for you because I don't know you.   My loyalty is to my team and my family and God.  That's it.  Beyond that if I can't see you as a productive member to society I will basicly write you off until you prove me other wise.

 

Harsh reality yes but it's what I gained from my deployment.

What we're seeing here  in this region is more of a schism between the "inner party" (Baby Boomer & Gen-X Dems) and the "labor force" (younger Dems that the party has traditionally relied on for it's footwork getting voters registered, getting them to the polls, etc).

 

It's actually pretty interesting, at least here in Arkansas. The inner party as I cited above is having to do more of its own legwork, and the outer party (the bernie crowd) is unable to muster any quality leadership and generally untrusting of the state party leadership. The primary was a tell  in that a Gubernatorial socialist candidate was handily defeated by a more mainstream dem, and this is one of the first years Arkansas has seen a significant crossover during primaries, when a lot of the older dems voted in the Republican primary to defeat Jan Morgan.

 

I think the potential for damage by socialists to state legislatures is the most immediate concern as those seats are more localized and easier for the demsocs to create a sphere of influence.

We are heading to that state of government.   Had Bernie ran he probably would of won.  2018 will bring out the everything is free from the dems.

 

2020 will be far worse.   People for the most part have been conditioned to take welfare and it became entitlements. 

 

Society is dead.   Why I believe most militias should be home steading and preparing for a long time of self reliance .

I have to agree with you that the demsocs are going to continue to gain traction, although I don't think it'll be that fast at the national level, but will probably happen in several states.  As the party ages and older moderate dems die off there's no doubt they are going to swerve even harder left. The stick in all of this is the distinct possibility that people start to realize that to pay for all those sunshine and lollipop programs requires a tremendous tax burden.

 

I had a confrontation once with a socialist professor and when I suggested he work for $15 an hour he balked. This is the true mark of a socialist: when it comes time for them to have to dig the ditch they aren't willing to pick up the shovel.

That's how it all is. 

 

I took myself out of it.  I vote and stay up to date on events.   This is one of the only places I go to chat.  But I turned my focus to growing myself and self reliance.  How many members here don't have More then a weeks worth of food on hand.  Or ways to purify water .  

 

You need to become the solution to yourself  before we can expect others to do the same. My entire outlook on life is just trying to achieve the ability to rely on God and our group only and be left alone with a very small gov .  It does mean not always buying a Golden glock or high dollar rifle.  It means buying a country living grain mill and working with solar and a garden.   

 

It keeps back to the old saying better for a soldier to be digging In a garden then a gardeners in a war.

Many will not fight until it's their door that is being knocked on.  For them, it's too late.  If the gun control, government in your hair 24 / 7, and the government taking more and more Rights away from the citizenry hasn't gotten you ready to be up in arms (no pun intended) then you are sleeping through the takeover.

 

Yup, and a lot of folks don't think it can happen in their state, but it's already happening (look at PA). All it takes is a soc dem majority in both sate houses and a dem govenor who put agenda over constituency and wala, you have draconian gun laws. And the socdems are well in line with that kind of agenda.

I used PA as an example because in the last primary in May 4 socdems beat everyone else for the ballot seat. That shocked me. Pennsylvania? No way. Yup way, it happened. And it happened because they appeal to a majority of the emerging voting block of youth who are eating that socialism lie hook, line, and sinker.

 

What scares me is that if these 4 get elected in 2018 and more come along in 2020 how long until they are able to form a caucus and leverage voting favors? Individual voting favors are one thing but a caucus represents a block with power in the legislature.

 

Here in Arkansas what we're seeing is they are running kind of "stealth" in that they are avoiding any kind of topics that would be controversial. Many of them only have two platform positions they will talk about things like Ag, education, infrastructure (all safe topics). Does that mean they don't have nefarious intentions? Heck no, I harbor no illusions they gives not two squirts about liberty.
