Today’s show is about the difference between socialism and “democratic socialism,” the new favorite label of liberals.

The election in Mexico saw “leftist populist” elected president, which will likely mean the flood of illegal aliens crossing the southern border will increase as he ruins the Mexican economy more than anyone thought possible and vows not only to not stop illegals from Central America from coming through Mexico, but to help them get to the United States. We need that wall.

Then there’s liberals darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She’s a proud “democratic socialist,” but can’t define what it is. She supports the ideas of “free” health care, college, and housing, but swears being a socialist is only part of who she is. Guess that means she’s even worse, too.

Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell of Washington fundamentally doesn’t understand where our rights come from, as both seem to think they are granted by the government. We set the record straight. You’re going to want to hear all of it.
