Have you checked out some of the platforms the Democrats are running on for the upcoming 2020 election? It is mind-boggling to see how far left they are pulling the party, so far in fact they are making Crazy Uncle Joe Biden look moderate. I guess I should be happy about the ideas being floated as it would seem to make Trump’s re-election a shoe-in. But some people are taking them seriously!
Bernie Sanders has become the early front runner… an admitted Democratic Socialist. Is this really the direction Democrats want to take our country? If so, I’m glad I’m in my 60’s, but I fear for my grandchildren. Bernie advocates free healthcare and college for everybody, but stops short of saying who’s going to pay for it. This from a man who never had a job, owns three houses and drives an expensive sports car – typical behavior for Socialist rulers. If elected, he’ll be 79 years old the first day he parks his posterior behind the Resolute Desk. He still has misconduct charges hanging over his head from the 2016 election, but Democrats don’t seem too concerned with laws these days, ain’t that right Kim Foxx?
Kamala Harris is for anything that a Conservative is not. The fact she’s from California should confirm everything you’d want to know. She will raise your taxes, take your guns away, abort babies but put a halt to the death penalty. She is for Medicare for all, reparations, open borders, legalizing pot and the Green New Deal concept. Just like the Bern, she hasn’t said who is going to pay for this, but I have a pretty good idea. Basically, she’s the younger, female, Jamaican form of Bernie.
Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, was Harvard Law School’s first “woman of color.” By now, everyone knows of her gimmick with using the Native Indian angle as a springboard to her current position and shouldn’t really be taken seriously. Should she? She too is pretty much in lock step with the Bern on every issue – let’s give everyone everything they want and figure out how to pay for it later. By the way, she is whiter than I am.
Corey “Spartacus” Booker, has a voting record in the Senate as the third most liberal, basically the black version of Bernie. In addition to all of Bernie’s handouts, Booker has introduced legislation for reparations for black folks because of slavery. Seems he thinks people that were never slave holders should fork over money to people who were never slaves. OK, I understand there were laws that did affect some black folks, but as a white guy, I never got a shot at attending Stanford, Oxford, and Yale as Mr. Booker did. As a matter of fact, I don’t know anybody else of any color that got that shot. His ham-bone handling of the SCOTUS hearing of Brett Kavanaugh was an abuse of authority.
Kirsten Gillibrand wakes up every day and jumps another step left in order to keep up with the flow of her party. One has to wonder if she believes everything she says, other than to complain about sexual harassment. Seems there is sexual harassment everywhere her eyes land.
When Amy Klobuchar isn’t berating her staff, or Brett Kavanaugh, she too seems to move one step left to keep up with the Bern. Are you seeing a pattern here – Democrats sprinting to keep up with the Socialist?
Robert Francis O’Rourke, there’s an Irish name from a guy who wishes he wasn’t white. (Does he see the irony that the Irish were indentured servants?) Known as Beto, he’s running for President now that he lost his election attempt for senator from Texas. Seems an odd step as one would think he would have wanted to actually win an election first before running for president. He too seems to be a Bern disciple, younger version, and will promise you everything you ever wanted if you just ask. Like me, Mr. O’Rourke committed a few youthful indiscretions that probably would be better off not brought out in a presidential election.
Eric Swalwell, also from California, just announced his run and promises to take your guns away, reminding us he has nukes to do it. This from the guy that also believes Trump is in cahoots with Russia, the Mueller report be darned.
Joe Biden might have had a chance until it was discovered he likes to grope and smell people. Everybody always knew that; the Democrats are making an issue now just to remove him. Too moderate.
Others with conceivably no chance include Jay Inslee, John Hickenlooper, John Delaney, Julian Castro, Pete Buttigieg, Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Yang, and Marianne Williamson. Even Stacy Abrams, sore loser in the Georgia senate race, is now “considering” it.
When they get around to promising free Bentley's they might just get my vote.
