Hillary Clinton actually told the truth.

But she instantly regretted it.

That’s because she let slip one secret that will destroy the Democrat Party for good.

Clinton was appearing at an event where she was being questioned by Time Inc. Brands CCO Alan Murray and she revealed that – in her opinion – being a capitalist hurt her in the Democrat primary.

The Daily Beast reports:

“Hillary Clinton claimed Wednesday that declaring herself to be a “capitalist” during the 2016 presidential primaries may have hurt her with Democratic voters.

“Probably,” she said when asked by Time Inc. Brands CCO Alan Murray if the declaration hurt her. The pair appeared in conversation as part of the Shared Value Leadership Summit in New York City.

“It’s hard to know but I mean if you’re in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialists or self-described socialists, and I’m asked ‘Are you a capitalist?’ and I say, ‘Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability.’ You know, that probably gets lost in the ‘Oh my gosh, she’s a capitalist!’” Clinton concluded, partly referring to the popularity of her primary rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who ran as a self-declared democratic socialist.”

In the 2016 campaign, her primary opponent was self-declared socialist Bernie Sanders.

Sanders pushed Clinton to the limit as his socialist platform caught fire with the Democrat base.

Of course Clinton is no capitalist.

Her platform was the most socialist platform of any candidate – including Barack Obama – in American history.

But Clinton’s big reveal also exposed the danger the Democrat Party is heading toward.

Americans don’t want systemic upheaval where the capitalist system – which turned the United States in the most prosperous nation in history – is overthrown and replaced with command and control style economic policies.

Socialism may be popular with the Democrat base, but that is the fringe of American politics.

No Democrat can win a primary without harnessing the energy of the base.

The base – however – is forcing Democrats to take insane positions on issues that will make the party unelectable in future contests.

An example of this is a report that a secret group of big money Democrat donors put an agenda together for 2020 and reparations for slavery was at the top of the list.

New Jersey Democrat Senator Cory Booker – one of the leading contenders for the 2020 Presidential nomination – proposed legislation that would launch a pilot program guaranteeing a federal job to every unemployed adult in three targeted areas.

No one will ever confuse Hillary Clinton for a truth teller.

But her slip of the tongue revealed a truth that Democrats don’t want the American public to know.

If their party base regards Hillary Clinton as a capitalist, then their descent into madness is complete.

And their chances of defeating Donald Trump in 2020 were just flushed down the drain.
