If Democrats insist on keep moving far left to get away from President Trump, they can kiss the midterms goodbye…

“There is no difference between Communism and Socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end; Communism proposes to enslave men by force, Socialism – by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide.” – Ayn Rand
