Over the past few years, Democrats have embraced a notion of what they call ‘democratic socialism’, as they claim it is a new type of Socialism, that benefits the people! Bernie Sanders and so-called Democratic Socialists define it as…
“When The 99% Stand Up Against the 1%”
However, does it really represent the 99%? In truth, NO! In fact, the very idea of ‘Democratic Socialism’ is a fiction, an oxymoron, and a mythological idea!
At ENR, we have previously and extensively documented and reported how…
any kind of Socialism, as defined by proponents and opponents, as the absence of private property. Therefore, it results in the end of individuals and corporations owning, improving, and exchanging resources, goods, and services. The elimination of private property is a central feature of socialism.
Meanwhile, no matter how you serve it up, how you dress it, or how you glorify Socialism, other nations have repeatedly tried the same Socialist slop that Bernie Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez, and other Democrats are trying to shove down the throats of the American people, regardless of Socialist nations being unable to maintain their struggling countries, and many have failed altogether throughout history!
Just one example is Venezuela, where a proud Socialist Hugo Chavez, was elected overwhelmingly in 1999 as President! He destroyed the Democratic institutions once he took power, and the nation spiraled from one of the most wealthy and prosperous nations on the planet to a nation where homelessness, rationing, drug abuse, and other problems ravaged the streets! Now, the streets are covered with the desperate and hungry, as they eat out of trashcans, and are left desperate for handouts from the government, which they won’t get!
Now, throughout pockets of America, there are states and cities who have become completely controlled by so-called Democratic Socialists, as they pleaded with their voters to put them into office, and they would show ‘compassion’ towards the poor, the homeless, the criminals, and the drug afflicted! As a result, cities like Seattle, New York, San Francisco, Sacramento, Chicago, Portland, and even entire states like California have become wholly or predominantly controlled by pro-socialist Democrats! Now, as a result of the voters giving them power, they have decimated businesses, corporations, and entire industries, in their effort to control all aspects of economic activity! That has resulted in a restriction of the citizen’s available choices and decisions, and a loss of the individual’s political power over the government! Also, it has resulted in massive economic contractions, as businesses, corporations, and industries leave Democrat-controlled areas! Now, as a result of Marxist based legislation, it has led to massive job losses, home foreclosures, skyrocketing mortgages, and economic instability! That has led to homelessness, skyrocketing drug abuse, mental issues, and so much more!
Now, in cities across the nation, what started out as an alleged ‘movement of compassion’, has become incompassionate! A movement that was said to be for the good of the 99%, has ravaged those very people, only to further enrich and empower the 1%, as the political elites gain power and wealth, while the 99% falls into desperation and dependence!
Today, the false idea of Democratic Socialism has misled entire cities and states to abandon the needs of each individual, for the good of the Elites, whether it is the Political, Social, or Fiscal Elites! Meanwhile, like all good Marxists, they have embraced and pushed the ideological concept of Socialism on their constituents, in their effort to control all aspects of economic activity, and to restrict the available choices and decisions of individuals, including political power of those individuals!
Sadly, history would tell us that Socialism has always led to the end of private property and markets, impoverishment, desperation, and even death! Ultimately, socialism is incompatible with democracy because democracy empowers the individual. Democracy tolerates dissent, individual differences, compromise! All of these ideals are impossible through Socialism, regardless of Socialism’s political and structural framework, whether it be a Dictatorship, Monarchy, Marxism, or a fancy and false-flag ideology like ‘Democratic Socialism’!
Ironically, Socialism cannot succeed without capital, which is why Margaret Thatcher’s famous quote came to a realization! In fact, Thatcher so eloquently said…
After all, without capital, economic growth and justice have no sustainable sponsor! Therefore, Socialist or government-owned enterprises are starved for capital, such as roadways, subways, water and sewer systems. Also, public utilities fail, as municipal finance would have no exchange and no investors, and it all would lead to derelict infrastructure everywhere.
Now, as a result of the radical left-wing Socialist/Marxist, or as they put it… ‘Democratic Socialist’ policies, too many American cities are faltering and failing, as they strip political and economic power from the people! Too many cities are falling into crime, as the people lose their homes, live on the streets, eat from trash cans, become addicted to drugs, and become desperate! As a result, too many American cities are becoming saturated with feces, drug needles, tents and shanty’s, as well as dilapidated homes! AND ALL THANKS TO WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT, WHETHER YOU CALL IT MARXISM, COMMUNISM, FASCISM, SOCIALISM, OR DEMOCRATIC-SOCIALISM, because they are all the same! A concentration of power and wealth from the hands of the many, into the hands of a few!
The following is the first, in a series on the cost of those left-wing Socialist policies that are already being embraced and realized in the United States of America, as it consumes entire cities and states! Sadly, too many left-wing Democrat controlled cities and States are leading their constituents into the ‘third-world’ realm of poverty, sickness, disease, and death, and at record speed!

Now, as cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Seattle continue to exacerbate the desperation and helplessness that the poor and once middle-classes are dealing with, their governments are now looking to eradicate not the problem, but the people who they look at as worthless, disgusting, and a blith on the city! For example, in Seattle, they have now proposed a $1Million dollar busing program for homeless, not designed to help them, but to get rid of them!
Fox News reported about Seattle’s so-called “homeless diversion program” as city officials call it, reporting…
A Seattle-area council member is pushing a $1 million proposal that would bus homeless people out of the state as part of a “family reunification” plan.
The plan, proposed by King County Councilman Reagan Dunn, would be a one- or two-year pilot program aimed at helping people who have someone in another state willing to take them in but can’t afford the cost of getting there.
Busing programs have been around for decades and have had varying degrees of success. While they can be a cheap and convenient way to connect people, critics warn it could lead to dangerous situations and say there’s no guarantee of permanent housing.
Democrat-led cities who are advocating for the shipping of the homeless masses on the streets of their radical leftist cities refuse to correct the policies that they implemented that caused the problems, which will lead to the eradication of the middle and poor in their cities of gold, while getting rid of those that they see as deplorable, by sending them to join those that they despise anyway…Middle Americans! Especially since many of those Middle Americans are truly compassionate, rather than acting as compassionate for political ends, like in those cities!
Fox News added that…
The city of Seattle and community organizers already offer free bus tickets as part of their broader approach to homelessness but Dunn’s proposal, unveiled Tuesday, focuses on 1,000 homeless people who said they wanted to reconnect with family during a homeless count in King County back in January.
In that survey, 9 percent of respondents said “family reunification” was one piece of support they needed to get off the streets and obtain permanent housing. However, other things like rental assistance, clearing up credit history and obtaining IDs ranked much higher.
Dunn unveiled his proposal at a time when city and county officials are considering merging services to better combat rising homelessness in a region that has been dominated by tech companies like Amazon and where income inequality and skyrocketing housing prices are pushing more and more people onto the streets.
Seattle officials say its homelessness diversion program allows people to determine how the city can best help them, whether that’s deposit money for rental housing, car repairs or finding a way to return home for long-term support if it’s “a safe and realistic solution.”
The program was envisioned by city councilman Reagan Dunn (D-WA), who is a member of the cities Elitist and wealthy class in Bellevue, a wealthy suburb of the city!
Dunn said that Seattle is also considering future restrictions and less access of the homeless to city services, likely meaning shelters, and food!
Critics say that a mere shifting and reshuffling of the homeless will cause major problems for those on the streets, likely leading to more medical issues and even death!
Dunn said he doesn’t want to limit future eligibility for all homelessness services but those restrictions should be considered. He said he would support limits to prevent people from repeatedly getting bus tickets. Meanwhile, critics say that reshuffle an already vulnerable population and don’t address chronic homelessness. Tristia Bauman, a senior attorney at the National Law Center of Homelessness and Poverty stated…
“That type of program model is one that is pretty obviously not designed to end homelessness. It’s designed to get homeless people out of town.”
Therefore, in the end, as Democrats continue to push for policies that have led to a crisis in their cities of rampant crime, drug abuse, disease, and homelessness, and as they look to spread and blanket those policies from sea to shining sea, they are simultaneously looking to throw out and dump those who have had their lives devastated and destroyed due to their policies, and dump them elsewhere, in the hope that they will become someone else’s problem! As a result, they have exemplified not only how little they care about the American electorate who are not a part of their Elitist class, but it demonstrates the true heart of the Socialist and Marxist Elites agenda in these United States of America!
