Democrats are always on the lookout for a new excuse to apply the “extreme Republicans” label. Nine really good ones dropped into their laps. Republican-backed abortion laws passed in a small minority of states are the new symbol for extreme conservative politics at the worst imaginable time.
American Ideals and Values
24 Democrats have lots to offer in this pre-election year. Their promises will be piled high on your plate before the real theatrics even get started. The stage is set with twin House and Senate bills calling for universal health care and election-stealing changes for the people to “renew Americans’ faith in our democracy.”
Democrats wrapped up their April 2019 Issues Conference with effusive praise for their fight for the people:
This was the best, the most exciting because we really had an opportunity to reflect on the work that we’ve done in the first 100 days – which I daresay is more than was done in the last eight years for the American people…1
That’s a pretty big boast.
Conservatives got even when the Electoral College dashed Hillary Clinton’s dream. Now Democrats are getting even with us. They are making America miserable. Lucky they have Trump. Without this deplorable president it would be all too obvious to their base just how useless and irresponsible they are.
It’s absolutely stunning to imagine after the GOP loss of the House that even a single Republican Senator could follow defeat with a refusal to agree with the president on something as basic as preserving our national sovereignty. On Thursday twelve GOP members of the Senate did exactly that when they sided with Democrats across the aisle and in the House to pass the Joaquin Castro (D-TX) resolution to quash Trump’s emergency declaration.
Diversity is a pillar of the Democratic agenda that is threatening to crush hopes for a sweeping takeover next year. One of the party’s greatest strengths has always been its ability to reach a consensus, or at least the appearance of agreement on what members stand for.
When Democrats fall back on America’s founding principles to justify their anger and frustration the words ring hollow. The usual political hypocrisy is acceptable and expected and we hear it from both sides, but do liberal lawmakers think we are so unschooled that we can’t see how ridiculous they sound when they turn to the Founding Fathers for support?
