This is not your father's — or your mother's — Democratic Party, which once hewed sensibly to the middle of the political spectrum. No, the "progressive" Democratic Party has turned into a giant grievance-machine premised on welfare for all, higher taxes on the most-productive Americans based on class warfare, and an ongoing attempt to separate Americans by race, gender, class, income, religion and geography.The memo referred to in the quoted passage is the "2007 Podesta memo, 'Strategic Outlook For The 2008 Elections,' . . . sent to progressive billionaire heavy-hitters George and Jonathan Soros, Peter and Jonathan Lewis, Herb and Marion Sandler, Steve Bing, John Sperling and Soros fund executive and political go-between Michael Vachon."
Read the memo. Theirs is a vision of a balkanized America of competing interests, which can only be managed by an all-controlling central government that distributes the benefits of citizenship.

By the way, Soros has spent literally hundreds of millions of dollars on various open-border and immigrant projects. Is it any wonder that Hillary Clinton, behind the scenes, tells her millionaire Wall Street audiences that she's a proponent of "open borders"?
Other hacked emails show the connection between John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, and "billionaire hedge-fund manager and climate-change extremist Tom Steyer."
The cesspool that of American progressive politics. The idea that this is a constitutional republic that in any way represents the will of the sovereign American people is ludicrous. Rather, a tiny fraction of the population is working to advance diseased progressive schemes that have nothing to do with the interests of the people or of the nation that they ostensibly own.
