Way down deep, Dems want folks hooked on gov't largess

Capitalism vs. SocialismIt will come as a shock to no one that Democrats on Capitol Hill are united in opposing the Republican tax reform bill – but why they're doing it may come as a surprise.

Nancy Pelosi likely is having a hard time finding language to top her previous warnings about the doom that Republicans and their tax overhauls will bring to Americans. She describes the current effort as "Armageddon" and "the worst bill in the history of Congress." But the warnings also have a very familiar ring to them:

Pelosi: "It is in their DNA to give tax cuts to the rich. That's their purpose in coming to Congress; that's why they're so thrilled with Donald Trump as president."

For decades, Pelosi and her fellow Democrats have been talking about "the rich not paying their fair share" and "tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans." But radio talk-show host Sandy Rios says the philosophy goes back a century.

Sandy Rios"It's class envy, class warfare," she tells OneNewsNow. "You will recall that the communists set the workers against the bourgeoisie. They do it with racism; they do it with money, greed, envy; they do it with poor against rich; they do it with labor unions.

"What they're saying about this tax bill is just reflective of that deep philosophy," she adds. "The central planners are just working out their plan."

Author and documentarian Trevor Loudon expanded on that theme during an interview on Thursday with Wil and Meeke Addison on the Urban Family Talk radio network.

"There's a hundred members of your House of Representatives and 20 members of the Senate who couldn't pass a basic FBI background check because they're so involved in neo-communist groups or Muslim Brotherhood groups or both," he stated.

Many of those, he said, identify with the same Democratic Socialists of America that Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) runs with.

"Their stated goals are the abolition of all private business," he continued. "They want to empty all of the prisons, they want complete government control of your thought processes, they want complete enforced equality for all, and they want the destruction of Christianity."

Loudon says those socialist-leaning lawmakers really don't want people to rise up or to get richer. Their thinking, according to Loudon, is the poorer people are, the more servile they are – and the more they will stick with the Democratic Party.

Loudon documents his allegations in his documentary The Enemies Within (see trailer below).
