It’s no secret, the animating forces behind the Democratic Party are true, radical leftists. These aren’t your classic JFK Democrats interested in a large government safety net or stronger unions. No, these folks are socialists, unafraid to affiliate themselves with ideologies and beliefs that just about any Democrat elected since Ronald Reagan would have balked at.

It goes like this: Today I am announcing as president of the United States and head of the executive branch, acting on behalf of and in the interests of “We the People,” that I am ordering my subordinates at the Department of Justice and…
