Joe Biden pontificated about the existential threat of climate change during the Nevada Democratic debate. Bernie Sanders used the same phrase in South Carolina. I don’t know how many progressive voters or politicians even know what “existential” means, but corporations are definitely an existential threat to Democrats, especially the party’s progressive wing.
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.
I’m not going to waste my time or yours pondering what might happen this November. Let’s jump ahead eleven months and be done with it. Trump won.
This post is about why Democrats lost the 2020 presidential election. It’s not a difficult thing to explain.
America is about being on top. Our nation is the preeminent economic and military superpower. We also pride ourselves on our ethical and moral leadership, but now these testaments to our strength are under fire. Socialists like presidential candidate Bernie Sanders who target vulnerable Americans are determined to cast doubt on what makes us great:
We must put an end to the obscene income and wealth inequality in our country, and ensure living wages, quality health care, and retirement security for our seniors as human rights.
Child sex abuse. Murder. Rape. Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren doesn’t get it. Even if federal law enforcement wanted to pursue “punitive anti-immigrant policies,”1 it doesn’t have the time or the resources. ICE is too busy rounding up criminals who commit crimes like these and who skip back and forth across the border with impunity after being deported.
Solving America’s biggest problem would make our country a better place. Democrats aren’t going to do that. Their health care solutions strive for an even more magnificent failure than they’ve already accomplished.
Extreme legislation and socialist policies that are absolutely unsustainable are not going to improve our economy, our lives, or the medical care we depend on.
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.
