There appears to be a new Communist Party arising out of the Democratic Party under the guise of Democratic Socialists. Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-Vt., is among the current leading contenders for the Democratic Party presidential nomination. It's my opinion that he is communist disguised as something more acceptable to Americans-a progressive or a Democratic Socialist. He is joined by a younger member of his political persuasion, who is also making national headlines, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. Joining them are Democratic presidential hopefuls Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who lied about having Native American heritage, and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.-all who appear to me to be communists disguised as Democrats.

This Democratic Party shift from being the moderate to liberal party in America to outright socialist and communist is the Hegelian dialectic at its best. The dialectic is how communists move masses of people toward their brand of politics. It relies on creating a mental conflict of an antithesis to the current thesis and then moving masses of people to a new synthesis. The current thesis (though it is changing) is a Republic built on capitalism. The antithesis is a communist utopia of "green" programs redistributing wealth so everyone has free everything provided by the government. The synthesis is designed to move Americans toward a communist system, where government replaces God.
