When President Obama embraced “Medicare for All” earlier this month, it was a remarkable moment. Not because the proposal will be adopted (it won’t) or because the price tag would bankrupt the nation (it would).
Rather, it was a remarkable moment because a former American president played the role of enabler for the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).
Indeed, Obama’s endorsement was a moment of great celebration for an organization that for years has plotted to hijack the Democratic Party and use it as a parasitic host to remake the nation.
Back in 2012, the Vice Chairman of DSA Joseph M. Schwartz and fellow Political Committee Member Jason Schulman published a strategy document that presented their dream of a socialist America and the political path to get there.
The dream was to abolish privately owned businesses, from small mom-and-pop stores to large corporate enterprises.
“Wealth,” they explained, “is a social creation and should be controlled by society as a whole.”
