The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples’ money. – Lady Margaret Thatcher

Former President Barack Obama on Monday endorsed dozens of Democrats in races across the country, including liberal darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in her New York House race.
Obama had left Ocasio-Cortez off his initial round of 81 endorsements over the summer, prompting speculation over why the ex-president had seemingly snubbed the Democratic socialist candidate who defeated House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., in the primary and whose big-government views align with those of Sen. Bernie Sanders. However, on Monday, Obama included her name on the list of 260 endorsed candidates for governor, U.S. Senate, U.S. House and state legislatures.
“The Democratic Party has always made the biggest difference in the lives of the American people when we lead with conviction, principle, and bold, new ideas,” Obama said in a statement. “Our incredible array of candidates up and down the ticket, all across the country, make up a movement of citizens who are younger, more diverse, more female than ever before.”
This time around, Obama seemed to snub Beto O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate running against Ted Cruz, R-Texas, for his Senate seat, and Rep. Keith Ellison, who is running for attorney general of Minnesota. Ellison is currently facing allegations of domestic abuse, which he denies.
As for the endorsements Obama did make, Republicans countered that they would do more harm than good.
“President Obama oversaw the slowest economic recovery in modern history and it cost Democrats more than 1,000 seats,” Republican National Committee Spokesman Michael Ahrens said in a statement to Fox News. “By tying these candidates to his failed economic policies, he’s helping ensure they suffer the same fate.”
Among his endorsements, Obama named several former campaign and Obama administration alumni who “have been inspired to run for office,” as well as many state legislative candidates that are “redistricting priorities.”
Obama offered his support to several Democratic gubernatorial candidates—like Florida’s Andrew Gillum, who is running against Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis; Connecticut’s Ned Lamont, running against Republican Bob Stefanowksi; and Massachusetts’ Jay Gonzalez, up against incumbent Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, among others.
“They’re Americans who aren’t just running against something, but for something,” Obama said of the candidates he endorsed. “They’re running to expand opportunity and restore the honor and compassion that should be the essence of public service.”
“I am proud to endorse so many of them today, and I’m eager to continue making the case for why they deserve our votes this November,” Obama added.
Thus far, Obama has campaigned for candidates in California, Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and has held fundraisers for campaign committees and the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, as well as individual candidates.
I found it very ironic that Obama used the word “diverse” to describe the Democratic Candidates running for election in the 2018 Midterms.
There is nothing “diverse” about them.
Today’s Modern Liberals are all marching in lockstep and about to fall of the Far Left end of the Political Spectrum in their zeal to implement “Socialism” as the governmental philosophy of the United States of America.
From Ocasio-Cortez up in New York to Gillum in Florida, this new breed of Democrats are worshipping at the alter of the Founders of the Russian Revolution instead of the Founders of our Sovereign Nation.
Just like Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) These students of Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky believe that there is no such thing as individual success. furthermore, they do not believe in America Exceptionalism.
They want those who have succeeded to be punished for it.
These Democrats desire to be a “New Poltiboro”, taking from the rich and giving to…themselves.
For you see, gentle readers, Marxist Theory is just that…a theory.
Man is a fallen creature whose greed always gets in the way of realizing a “Socialist Paradise”, like these new Democratic politicians are promising out on the stump.
Oh, sure. They have big dreams, which sound pure and noble to the young heads full of mush who are fresh out of 12-16 years of indoctrination in America’s Public Schools and universities as to how great a “Democratic Socialist” America would be.
However, the reason that theories remain theories is that when they are attempted out in the Real World, instead of a classroom, they fail spectacularly.
For proof of what I are telling you, please refer to the 8-year economic nightmare known as the Obama Presidency.
When President Ronald Reagan told Americans that the 9 words that they never wanted to hear were
“I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.”
…he must have been having a prophetic vision of the Obama White House.
But, I digress…
The reason that Obama is out stumping for these young Socialists…err…Democrats, is the same reason that the hypocrites in the Senate are trying so hard to keep Judge Brett Kavanaugh from becoming our next Supreme Court Justice: Obama wants desperately to preserve whatever “legacy” he has left, just as those Democratic Senators do, and that means keeping America’s political power in the hands of Far Left Special Interest Groups who are bankrolled by the Puppet Master himself, George Soros.
And, that is why they hate the MAGA Movement and President Trump, himself.
For when the light of truth shines of all of the Far Left Democrats, they act like kitchen cockroaches, scrambling for the nearest baseboard or refrigerator to hide under.
And President Trump, along with the “New Media”, which is comprised of average Americas who love our country haven’t just shined flashlights on these “new Democrats”, they’ve shined “Q-Beams”.
Until He Comes,
