Last night, three sitting Denver City Councilmen were ousted from office in an anti-incumbency surge. Don’t worry, it’s just trading maybe slightly reasonable Democrats for those who identify with Bernie Sanders. One in particular already has espoused socialist leanings, Candi CdeBaca and the Denver Democratic Socialist Party is here to celebrate.
There’s now a @DemSocialists member on the Denver city council 😍
We’re going to take this city back from the developers, and put community in the drivers seat.
This is only the beginning.
Candi is a reminder that another world is possible, if we fight for it.#copolitics

In case you think this is just the Denver Socialists claiming an unearned victory, you should know that CdeBaca is not kidding about her socialist leanings. Here’s a video of her talking about her communist value system.
In case you don’t have time to watch the 45-second video, here’s a quick take on her belief system:
“I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources and distribution of those resources…. I’m excited to usher it in by any means necessary.”
Please send help. We’re beyond screwed in Denver.
