The so-called “Squad” shows the Democrats have their fair share of lunatics.
Wow, when you look through all these Democrat candidates for president, you find quite a handful of pure lunatics. Of course the message is always free everything and who knows how we would actually pay for it all.
But the two candidates among them that I find kind of interesting are Tulsi Gabbard and Seth Moulton. They both seem to have a mind of their own — versus just spouting a lot of doctrinaire left-wing ideology by rote — and they both seem to have a modicum of practicality in their positions, which is a rarity in the pie-in-the-sky Democratic Party.
In the debates, Tulsi Gabbard brought up legitimate issues concerning American foreign policy, while all the other candidates were pretty much mum about international affairs (like it doesn’t really matter, does it?). And Seth Moulton stuck a pin in all the socialism baloney, pressing the need for taking the Democratic Party in a new but more practical direction.
But for most of these candidates, with so little grasp of reality, I would be afraid to let them manage a house party, let alone run the entire country — what a frightening thought!
Trump is going to cut through their malarkey like a hot knife through butter.
I made a campaign contribution to the Trump campaign. Wasn’t much money but it was a first for me — I’ve never contributed any money before to any politician. Never.
I like some of Trump’s policies but not all of them, but I’m definitely frightened by what I see among the Democrats — no borders, soft on crime, free everything, socialism, anti-free speech. The next time we elect a Democrat as president will be perilous for the country, for Democrats have turned into ideologues with no common sense.
2020 is going to be an intense year in the US. If you think 2016 was raucous, you haven’t seen anything yet. I wonder if the intensity is going to cause violence and perhaps even assassination attempts by people who have been driven over the edge. Wouldn’t surprise me at all.
But first the Democratic candidates will tear into each other.
West coast cities are turning into sewers under the Democrats. They just flat out don’t know how to government worth a damn. Good at getting your vote; terrible at actually governing. Chicago is another example. Is New York next — about to slide back to the crazy, lawless place it was back in the 70s and early 80s? Wouldn’t surprise me because the long-term residents there are leaving in droves, and being replaced with poor immigrants, many of them illegal immigrants. We all know how that ends up. The tax base gets eroded, while welfare costs go through the roof.
Cities overrun with the homeless, illegal immigrants, and drug addicts…needles and human waste everywhere — our future.
Long-time residents of San Francisco can’t get out of the city fast enough. They are fleeing. I don’t blame them a bit. I would too.
The real tipping point for a city comes when the police stop policing because it has become too dangerous for them to go into large sections of the city. That’s already happened in Chicago. That would be the next leg down for San Fran and LA. When that happens, the descent into chaos is unavoidable.
Most Americans have the happy illusion that ours is a well ordered and peaceful society. That might be the case for country life and small towns across the country, but when you get to the level of cities, the facts tell a quite different story. St. Louis, for instance, is ranked the 16th most dangerous city in the entire world. I don’t think it will be long before the United States has a city in the top 10, perhaps more than one.
New sarcastic name for Democrats is the “Dims” instead of Dems. How appropriate for a party that’s for open borders, apologists for Islam, and free everything.
I’m not sure the Democratic Party will survive intact in 2020 — there is just too wide a divide between the conservative wing and the far-left elements. I think the “progressives” will break away to form a new socialist party. Just a prediction.
Relative to the entire population of the US, you could fit all the racists and white supremacists on the head of a pin and have room to spare.
