America's been fighting against communism since World War I, yet, Congress after WW I, proposed and passed the first governmental ownership control program called the Tax Act under the guise of a 16th Amendment, ratified in 1913, and states: "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration." This overreach of our personal funds financed the First and Second New Deal Acts of 1933/38. FDR and Congress passed the first socialism/domestic programs. The 16th Amendment Tax Act began the start of socialism and the second New Deal Acts established the future of socialism will rise and become secure in America.

Now, we have the first openly declared democratic/socialism candidate.

Yes, I know, many say socialism is just progressive social programs, but it's really a milder form of communism no matter what you call it.

As many refugees leave their communist/socialist homes to arrive in America living free today, they have to face America's version of a classless society, working towards equal distribution of economic goods, to be achieved thru democratic liberal progressive shaming, rather than thru gradual voter movement for change.

All that's left to do is: Democrats design a strategy to gain the state ownership of production, state planning and control of the economy, taking us down to a one-party political structure, with an emphasis on the requirements of the state rather than on individual liberties. This is a political movement for establishing socialism. How does our Constitution fit into socialism? Do we change constitutionally until no individual freedoms are left? Why do the refugees leave their communist/socialist homes to come here, only to receive more of what they tried to leave behind?
