Been happening for a long long time..
Socialists are NEVER satisfied..

Democracy is the road to socialism. -Karl Marx

Democracy is indispensable to socialism.
The goal of socialism is communism. -V.I. Lenin

The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism .-Karl Marx

We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like
a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.~Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

“How do you tell a Socialist:- It’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin.
And how do you tell an Anti-Socialist someone who understands Marx and Lenin” -Ronald Reagan
