“You had the Democrat mayor and a Democrat governor both trying to get injunctions against the union and that really was like the last straw for me with Democrats,”
Today's Resurgence of Socialism report comes from Philadelphia, where the Philadelphia Weekly writes about the exponential growth of DSA's Philly chapter, the Democratic Socialists of America, and again, when they ask people swelling Socialism's ranks explain why they joined the DSA high on the list is the Democratic Party and how it sold out the working class. And, like it it says in the quote, have even turned on the unions and don't we know it in New Mexico where we've got a senator, Martin Heinrich and a representative, Michelle Grisham, Democrats both, who never utter the word union and refuse to back the Employee Free Choice Act and vote with the Republicans, who have never offered a single bill that would slow the flow of money to the top.
I know, it's been awhile since I posted about the rise of Socialism in the USA, more than 12 hours. Give me a break, I grew up during the McCarthy Era and believe me it was rough being a kid in diapers dealing with that, all the evil Socialism this and scary Communists that and it's been a long, lonely road what with Reagan and the Soviet Union breaking up and Democrats who are just like Republicans except for gay marriage and abortion and both parties bought off and saying yes sir and no sir to a ruling class that only gets more greedy and corrupt, strutting around, laughing, sneering, dancing on Socialism's grave.
Or so they thought. The fools never knew, couldn't have known that Capitalism was the best friend Socialism ever had, because when Capitalism could no longer deliver the goods and the Republicans and Democrats both said we can't afford the American dream any more and a few rich people had nearly all the money and we had nearly none, Socialism came roaring back.
