Dennis Prager appeared on Fox News with Judge Jeanine Pirro to discuss the rising Socialist party in America. Prager discusses how the Left have driven the Liberals out of the Democrat party, and have hijacked America.

Prager stated, “It is an economic failure. And here is a simple reason: Only, and that’s key, only capitalism creates wealth. No other economic way of life, system, philosophy, has ever created wealth. Socialism spends the money that capitalism creates. No one can deny that. Even leftists can’t deny that. They will say it’s the moral thing to do to then, to spend money capitalism creates because there’s income inequality and all the things they object to. But they cannot deny that it itself makes no money. So, it depends on capitalism to even exist.”

Prager concluded, “Secondly, it always deprives people of freedom because it makes the government bigger and bigger. As the government gets bigger, in every instance, there is no exception, people’s rights diminish. America was founded, and it’s the only country founded, on limited government.”

Prager concluded, “The left has taken over the liberals. Liberalism has been vanquished by leftism. It’s been kidnapped. If you would have asked a liberal 50 years ago, ‘Are you pro-socialist?’ He would have said are you crazy in the biggest anti-communists were the labor unions in the 40s and 50s. But liberals have wimped out the battle against the left. Alan Dershowitz is a rare example of a living liberal who is anti-left.”
