Newly registered Orange County Democrats will be able to vote socialist

Bernie Sanders announced that he will run for the Democratic nomnination for President in 2020:

That will give all those newly registered Orange County Democrats a chance to vote socialist.

Also all the students at our local institutions of higher education who know nothing of history, and agree with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that the proposed southern border wall is exactly the same as the Berlin Wall… except for the whole reason for it being built. The Berlin Wall was built by the Communists to keep people from leaving for the West. If the proposed southern border wall were exactly like the Berlin Wall, then Mexico really would have to pay for its construction to keep people from leaving for el Norte.

Neither AOC nor Bernie know history, current events, or economics. Or they willfully mislead their supporters, who should be embarrassed to admit their support.

Update: Response to the Sanders announcement from Democracy for American

Democracy for America’s Chief Executive Officer Yvette Simpson issued the following statement following Sanders’ announcement:

“In 2016, Senator Bernie Sanders rewrote the playbook of presidential politics and inspired a nationwide, grassroots movement that has helped transformed the range of the politically possible ever since.

“Blessed with a diverse field of candidates committed to inclusive populist reforms, we’re looking forward to seeing how Sanders and the movement behind him make the case for ‘political revolution’ in a very different 2020 contest.

“To win in 2020, Democrats need a leader committed to a visionary, progressive agenda who can win the enthusiastic support of the New American Majority of people of color and progressive white voters. With Sanders joining Warren, Harris Gillibrand, and a number of others, we’re more confident than ever that Democrats will find the candidate we need to defeat Trump and start delivering the kind of economic, social, and racial justice needed to improve real people’s lives.” — Yvette Simpson, Executive Director, Democracy for America

In late 2014 and early 2015, Democracy for America (DFA) worked with MoveOn.org to encourage Senator Warren to run for President in the 2016 election. In late 2015, following an endorsement vote of its grassroots progressive members, DFA endorsed Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic Presidential Primary — the first presidential primary endorsement ever.

Last December, DFA released the results of its first 2020 Presidential Pulse Poll and made it clear that its presidential endorsement was “up for grabs.”

  1. Few should be surprised that so many want socialism. Just look at what the schools are indoctinating from kindergarten to college. Shame on any American who votes Democrat!
