I’m sorry Bernie, but it’s hard for me to listen to what you have to say and still think of you as one of us. You campaign as a Democrat but call yourself a socialist. The media calls you a progressive.
The elections category discusses why some political issues are trending and why some punch our buttons, the ethics of the stump, vote fraud, the never ending partisan war for our hearts and minds, and the internal strife in the Republican Party as conservatives struggle for an identity they can sell and Donald Trump's erratic leadership steals the spotlight.

This post is about why Democrats lost the 2020 presidential election. It’s not a difficult thing to explain.
Our nation is defined by values Democrats no longer understand. Instead of embracing what makes America great, they have turned who we are into a mandate for subversion.

Candidates running for office aren’t known for telling the truth when they make promises. Despite bitter experience we overlook that fact and vote for them anyway. That’s one of the reasons that offering bribes to millions of people that will never be paid is such a popular, legal, and unethical campaign strategy.
Greed is great. It’s such a powerful motivator that it can even make you president, or at least that’s the hope of two Democratic Party candidates looking to face off against Trump in the 2020 presidential race if the House doesn’t unseat him first.
Author’s note July 29, 2020: This post was published on October 19, 2018. It was less than one month before Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party took control of the House of Representatives.
A lot of misinformation, disinformation, and outright lies have been spread since then.
