If they win the White House and take the Senate, Democrats are planning a radical socialist overhaul of the federal government that could reach down to every neighborhood and home in America.
Among their plans are getting rid of the Senate filibuster, packing the Supreme Court with an expanded number of hard left judges, statehood for DC and Puerto Rico, “Hate Speech” standards for all media outlets, abolition of private schools and universities, abolition of parochial schools, nationalization of key industries and services, and an end to the Electoral College.
They are rumored to be leaning heavily on DC think tanks like the Brookings Institution to flesh out the execution of their plans. Their model? The Labour Party takeover of Britain in 1945, with a PC twist.
Many leftists and other Democrats are admitting their plans. “As far as the filibuster, I’m not busting my chops to become majority leader to do very little or nothing,” said Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York. “We are going to get a whole lot done. Everything, everything is on the table.” And he means everything.
“If Republicans confirm Judge Barrett, end the filibuster and expand the Supreme Court,” Sen. Ed Markey, D-MA, tweeted on Saturday.

“I didn’t come here to not do anything. I came here to get things accomplished,” Democrat Senator Jon Tester of Montana told National Review. “I think the filibuster’s very important, and I think it makes for better legislation, and I still believe that. I still support the filibuster, but, like I said, we’ll see what happens with the other side. Who knows what’s going to happen?” He’s hedging his bets so he can go with the flow if Biden takes the White House.
“The fact is people in the District of Columbia pay taxes, fight our wars, risk their lives for our democracy and yet, in this state they have no say, they have no vote in the House or Senate about whether we go to war and how those taxes are exacted,” Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said in support of DC and Puerto Rican statehood. Pelosi knows this would give the Democrats four more Senators and more than several new members of Congress. That is her only motive.
The more radical plans like hate speech media regulations, abolition of private schools, nationalization of industries, and the end of the Electoral College are not being talked about overtly as of yet. Democrat elected officials and party pros do not want to scare the American people with their socialist makeover ideas before the election.
But after the election, if the Democrats take the White House and the Senate, which are real possibilities, then the nation will awake Wednesday morning to the beginning of the end of an America that has been a beacon of freedom and prosperity for almost 250 years. A far different country will take its place.
