House Democrat “Offended” By Party’s Acceptance of Socialism

For many Democrats, capitalism is a dirty word. It conjures up feelings of anger at wealthy businesspeople who have dared to climb the ladder of success. Of course, the fact that successful businesspeople employ Americans does nothing to squelch liberals’ opinions of capitalism. They simply believe these industrious individuals are getting richer at the expense of the poor, and should happily dole out their fortunes to the less fortunate.

With leftists decrying capitalism daily, one House Democrat’s recent speech at the BakerHostetler legislative seminar was refreshing. At this event, Democratic Representative Stephanie Murphy, Florida, praised capitalism while lambasting socialism. According to TheBlaze, Murphy said, “I am offended by this whole conversation about socialism. The idea that in the greatest democracy, the greatest capitalist system in the world, we’re having casual conversation about socialism, offends me.”

In front of the crowd of 150, the Congresswoman dared to declare herself a “proud capitalist.” Murphy, whose family fled Vietnam and came to the United States when the Representative was a baby remarked, “It is the system that built us the greatest nation and the greatest economy in the world. Sure, we have to fix the inequities that exist in our system. We have to make sure everybody, no matter what zip code they’re born in, has a fair shot.”

Further explaining her stance, Murphy poignantly remarked, “But it is not the moment to undo the whole system and embrace something that Americans have spent blood and treasure fighting to save other countries from.” The Representative also contrasted her experience living in America with the circumstances of her relatives who still reside in Vietnam. Murphy revealed that she’s even had to send her loved ones basic medical supplies because of shortages in the country.

In her impassioned speech, Murphy didn’t call out any of her fellow Democrats by name. However, some prominent liberals have made significant strides making socialist policies exceedingly popular. This is especially the case with the younger demographic. Last year, a stunning poll steered by the Mari/Blue data firm in coordination with Buzzfeed News showed that almost half, a whopping 48 percent, of millennial Democrats identify as either democratic socialists or socialists. While an additional 22 percent claimed they didn’t identify as either, they responded that they “need to learn more.”

Senator Bernie Sanders, the Democratic Party’s current frontrunner for president, is a self-proclaimed socialist. The 2020 presidential hopeful almost earned the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination the last time around while promising “free” college tuition and universal health care. Alarmingly for supporters of capitalism, Sanders’ popularity hasn’t seemed to wane since his 2016 defeat. The 77-year-old participated in a town hall on Fox News on April 15, 2019. The event was the most watched town hall of the 2020 election cycle. After viewing Sanders’ performance, Republican strategist Karl Rove said he believed Sanders could win the White House in 2020.

Besides Sanders, freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is also a dedicated stalwart of socialist policies. After a mere few months on Capital Hill, Ocasio-Cortez has become a household name. The Representative has an insanely large online following who, along with almost all of the 2020 Democratic presidential contenders, support her proposed Green New Deal. The lofty proposal would shift the U.S. economy to “clean” energy over 10 years. The staggering estimated price tag for the liberal legislation is over $94 trillion according to TheBlaze.

In the not too distant past, Sanders’ and Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist agendas would have been deemed ludicrous even by members of the Democratic Party. The fact that these policies are not only accepted, but embraced, should scare conservatives silly. Kudos to Murphy for having the courage to stand up to the radical left in her party. For those who want America to continue on as a capitalist nation for generations to come, the choice at the ballot box in 2020 couldn’t be clearer.

  1. A very brave Democrat who I can say deserves respect. Her head isn’t filled with hatred and dumb ideas. What a rare person to be labeled Democrat. Leave the Communist Party you would be a nice Conservative Republican ad not a RINO like Romney the idiot. We unfortunately have so much crap in both parties. Very few REAL CONSERVATIVES too.

  2. Unfortunately, the far left will probably target Rep. Murphy for her remarks and try to oust her in the primaries. We need more in congress like her.

  3. The people that want Socialism won’t like it once they get it. Oh ya, it will be great till the money runs out. By then it will be to late to turn back and we all know that socialism is the stepping stone to Communism. Be careful what you wish for. A free education will eventually mean you will work for free.

  4. Amazing courage and insight…I applaud her for her position and understanding and for not getting caught up in the arrogant posturing of her fellow democrats. As a Republican, I would vote for her…we need more young people who can think clearly, express concern about our future and not be swayed by the empty emotional rage found in the self-aggrandizing democratic ranks!!

    1. Stop calling these radical left morons progressives, they are the opposite, Regressive. They do nothing to further
      progress. They are not Democratic Socialists either. Terms contradict. What they really have become are
      The Radical Socialist/Communist Party. Too bad they will fall and collapse soon. This country will never become a Socialist State. This is not Germany, Cuba, Venezuela or any other failed country who has tried this devastating ideology. Socialism is hell on earth. America will no longer be. It takes away our freedom and brings poverty to all.

  5. First: the US is a republic not a democracy. Socialism has been tried in many different formats and has failed in every case. George Orwell’s book “Animal Farm” should be required reading in all schools.

    1. It was required reading when and where I attended high school back in the 60’s. One of the reasons I have voted Republican every time.

    2. “George Orwell’s book “Animal Farm” should be required reading in all schools.”
      It WAS when I went to school.

  6. I am not able to share this article about a conservatie democrat on facebook. They will not let it be posted!



  8. idolaters who, give no credit to G-D and Son for making america great under capitalism are the danger. the biggest error all fascist socialism, always tragically makes and is the cause of all your pestilence, plague and famine sent. the secular luke warm, ELOHEEM and/or Son hates the most.

    not even the poly attributists, of greece, rome, egypt were secular worshiping the attributes of ELOHEEM is better than secular. secularism, is a most dangerous satanic, hamolech, and hamavreek, occult religions whose cause and effect i can see in america today.

    if there is on thing, to remember in all of scripture. is that ELOHEEM and/or Son, loves those who acknowledge and love them. and persecutes with hate those, who don’t.

  9. THIS is a MUST READ for what is happening in our COUNTRY.. LONG but take the time…Civil War How do civil wars happen?Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge. That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it’s not the first time they’ve done this. The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn’t really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There’s a pattern here.What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any election that they don’t win. It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.That’s a civil war.There’s no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think they’re the worst thing that ever happened to the country but then you work harder to win the next election. When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don’t win, what you’re asking for is a dictatorship.Your very own dictatorship.The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power it’s inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House.So what did they do?They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time a Federal judge issues an order saying the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without the judge’s say-so, that’s civil war.Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that’s not the system that runs this country. The Democrat’s system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.If the Democrats are in the White House, the president can do anything…and I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is unlimited. He’s a dictator. But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can’t do anything. He isn’t even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor invented illegally. A Democrat in the White House has discretion’ to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the ‘discretion’ to reverse him. That’s how the game is played. That’s how our country is run. Sad but true, but the left hasn’t yet won that particular fight.When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren’t allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasn’t allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries.The Constitution has something strong to say about that. Whether it’s Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This is what I call a moving dictatorship.Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a guild. Like the medieval guilds. You can’t serve if you’re not a member. If you haven’t been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren’t in the club. And Trump isn’t in the club. He brought a bunch of people with him who aren’t in a club with him. Now we’re seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down.That’s not a free country. It’s not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an ‘insurance policy’ against Trump winning the election. It’s not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It’s not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It’s not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn’t supposed to win did win. Have no doubt, we’re in a civil war between a conservative volunteer government and the leftist Democrat professional dictator government.

    1. your “dissertation” is totally accurate.. Thing that the communist democrats don’t get is there are a lot of people (like me ) who will fight to the death,and we are REALLY close to another armed war within our nation. The people to go after first are the violators of our nations constitution. (democrats) I have likely already said too much. But you can be assured ,I am ready to defend our constitution with the oath I swore many years ago. If the cost of doing so is my life,so be it. I LOVE my country . I stand by the constitution,bill of rights,federalist papers and all else that our founders put into place to keep us a free nation..socialist/communists beware ! just because you THINK it won’t happen you really are a pack of delusional idiots..

  10. I am greatly concerned about Teresa’s comment. Can anyone verify that this article can’t be posted on facebook. If that’s true, we have a bigger problem.

  11. Congratulations and thank you for your bravery. Now please make the transition to conservative affiliation and sanity.

  12. Socialism as I see it is just PLAIN jealousy towards those who have WORKED hard to attain their position in Life. Their Manta, Why WORK when we Can Take from those who have worked towards their Goals. As Margret Thatcher once said, WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU RUN OUT OF OTHER PEOPLES MONEY?

  13. Finally, a democrat with common sense. Socialism was tried by the Pilgrims and failed. It has been tried by Cuba and Venezuela, previously one of the richest countries in this hemisphere, and now its citizens are eating out of dumpsters and eating their pets. So-called socialists like Sanders are already wealthy and are not ready to give up their wealth to distribute to those less affluent than them.

  14. I applaud this young women! Free has a price tag, the problem is that many people do not explain who pays for free.

  15. I remember the days very distinctly when both liberals and conservatives shared an interest in freedoms and loved this country. A country that provided many opportunities and has been created as a Constitutional Representative Republic with a free enterprise economic engine. The greatest economic system ever created by mankind. This system does not guarantee happiness it just secures the right to pursue happiness. So the individual has to provide motivation, energy and desire to succeed. Government does not provide that. Where opportunity exists some are going to prosper much more then others that is only normal. Because it is up to the individual. Along with opportunity is the fact that not everyone succeeds. Therefore, failure is also a factor and government must stay out of the picture and allow failure. Failure many times leads to future successes. A learning process if you will. That is exactly where George Bush failed in his administration. Obama followed in his footsteps in the bailout. And it was all wrong. We all know that now. Hopefully we have learned from our mistake.

    I also remember very distinctly when JFK became president he made a statement most so called democrats would not support today. “Ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country.” Kennedy was far from a perfect president however, he loved the country and that set him apart from today’s so called democrats. Few if any Kennedy democrats remain today. Most democrats now are socialist democrats or in other words communists, marxist or perhaps fascist. All are based on socialist principles and have never worked, ever!

    Obviously Stephanie Murphy is an exception to the rule for a democrat. There is little doubt in my mind she will someday say the same thing Ronald Reagan said; “I did not leave the democrat party it left me.” Only democrats with determination and self confidence have the nerve to say that. She is already conservative so there is little she may already have those qualities. It is just a matter of time.

  16. Socialism will be the last step toward the total split up of America. Some will call it a civil war, some will call it a divorce of sorts. Half , maybe more of Americans will not stand by and watch this country and it’s founding principles be taken over by ignorant, lazy, people who have accomplished nothing to date but convince one another that this great country has somehow cheated them and is unfair. These ignorant people don’t know what unfair is until they experience socialism. Will this be the next Democratic lie 30 years from now where they turn this tragedy into a lie and blame Republicans for their failure? You know like they have done with slavery, the KKK, civil rights legislation, Jim Crow laws, imprisonment of Japanese Americans. In deed the Democrats have so many ghosts in their closets and so much shame in our history. Along with this new love for socialism the modern Democrats are in support of full term abortion, open borders, gun control laws that invade our constitutional rights, restrictions on free speech ( only want speech they agree with) , high taxes, and everyday they show their distain for religious freedom , let’s not get into the “new green deal”. We fought wars for foreign countries to keep them free of communism and now we have people here in our own country professing its virtues !

    1. that is sick.. But, these idiots REALLY do not have a clue..What is amazing to me is “they” do not seem to realize what all those “immigrants” are running away from. When one does not care to LOOK at reality they will then suffer the results of their stupid ignorance. The ONLY scum that do ok in socio/communist systems are the connected political trash. ALL others are doomed. Once they accomplish their sick goal there will not be anywhere to run to. So, I say, AMMO up and get ready to fight to the death. If you don’t, you and your family are doomed anyway. So why not die with honor defending your nation and take as many of those scum down as you can !!

    2. I would hope there would be a fight instead of falling to socialism, I don’t want to live under socialism

  17. I believe we need a military dictatorship – for 5 years to straighten out this country, everyone settle down and think
    normally. Then give it back to the American public by a legal election.

  18. Highlight article then go to your page and paste.
    It won’t last long but maybe for once people will use some common sense and really open their eyes to what they are told they want.

  19. Sorry Wayne but there will never be any military dictatorships or any other types of dictatorships in our country as long as there are Americans in this country who know what Democracy really stands for as most of us do since we have lived it for many years. Are you serious to believe that you want the military and I assume you mean ours, take over rule of our country and we all live under that for 5 years and then they will give it back to us!? You sound like a flaming SCIALIST! The military rules would destroy our country and if they lasted 5 years and still had control they would never give up control ever! That is a mess we definitely do not need. Please file this notion in the nearest waste basket please.

  20. I was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam. 131 of us graduated from flight school in 1968. 130 of us were in Vietnam 2 weeks later. One guy didn’t have to go because his Dad was already over there. We were told that the life expectancy of a chopper pilot was approximately 12 minutes of flight time. At that time, there was a class like this graduating every 2 weeks. A year later 31 of us came back. I can just imagine the other 99 rolling over in their graves because of the demon-strating socialists who call themselves democrats. “God Help Us”

  21. 48% of the Democrats is like 16% of the population. Too large but still small. No socialist candidate has ever gotten more then 8% of the votes (I think his name was Stevens – ran against FDR when FDR first ran – during the great depression when socialism was at it’s peak too). Socialism is, by definition, against the Constitution of the USA so it really should be pressured heavily by all patriots.

  22. The only thing that offends her is that their agenda is now out in the open thank to AOC and ohmar. At this point, I always consider liberals are lying the minute they open the foul mouths. I expected some to come out against socialism, I expect some to pretend to be conservatives. They ALL lie, I only trust President Trump, period.

  23. Apparently, all Democrats aren’t morons. There might even be one or two who actually care about America. Good job to those who speak up.
