OK, I’m plaigerizing, a tad, Matt 7:16 (“Ye shall know them by their fruits”) and I swapped the clauses around, well, just a couple takeaways from the two nights. I actually missed most of both of them because of meeting but I think that these perfectly summarize the mindset of the mainstream Democrat elected politicians:
1) Kamala Harris:
Hey guys, you know what? America does not want to witness a food fight, they want to know how we are going to put food on their table.
2) Bill De Blasio:
Yes, we are supposed to be for 70% tax rate on the wealthy; yes, we’re supposed to be for free college, free public college, for our young people. We are supposed to break up big corporations when they’re not serving our democracy. This Democratic Party has to be strong and bold and progressive…you hear folks say there’s not enough money — what I say to them every single time is, there’s plenty of money in this world, there’s plenty of money in this country, it’s just in the wrong hands. We Democrats have to fix that.
3) Julian Castro
I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom, I believe in reproductive JUSTICE.
4) And when asked if they supported the idea that Medicare For All would erase all private healthcare plans, while only two raised their hands (Sanders and Warren), most of the others “doing the dog whistle” (hey, why can’t I use that phrase – the Left does all the time), the rest were supportive, in one fashion or another, of a Public Option that would “compete” with private plans with all of them winking (figuratively) that the Federal plan would eventually crush private plans simply by dint of having unlimited resources and money. In act, Gillibrand made it clear:
People will choose Medicare, you will transition, we’ll get to Medicare for All.”
Take them altogether and they print a rather sorry picture of their vision of the “Land of the Free”.
Kamala Harris believes that it is the it is the purpose of Government to feed people, as if we were unable to feed ourselves. What self-sufficient, self-reliant, free citizen expects that Government will “put food on their table”? Children expect their parents to do that – is that how she sees the rest of us? As if we all are so oppressed that we EXPECT that government are our parents and must provide for us?
De Blasio: let me translate: “You have no money – it’s the Democrats. You don’t spend it the way you should so we will take it from you because we don’t believe that Taxation is Theft. In fact – your money is being liberated for us to give to others”. See “food on the table, above. Plus, just about anything else to provide “freedom from want” for others. We, however, don’t care if you want your own money.
Julian Castro: Right, as Steve pointed out, the Democrat Party is at the point where men can give birth and menstrual products in male bathrooms. Party of Science, or Party of Demanded (and Demented) Delusions in which we call must be a part of (and use silly made up pronouns for the sake of “Diversity”).
And with Medicare For All? It really means “No Choice left unmade By Us (because you’re stupid)”. But ALL of them said that they’d put illegal aliens onto it – at our expense. I guess that’s their way of telling us quietly what De Blasio said publicly – our money is theirs.
I am going to actually sit dow and go through both debates and pull out quotes showing the Leftward sprint is going on.
Again, I lay on the table:
What is the difference between Democrats and Socialist / Communists?
And, yes, I’ve added that last word because as Marx said, Socialism is just a waypoint to Communism. I’d also tell you to go listen to this, and think – where am I, as an Individual, in their grand scheme for their utopian end game?
