    Do the Democrats Have an Issue?

    Do the Democrats Have an Issue?




    https://www.americanthinker.com/arti..._an_issue.html
    August 17, 2019 ~~ By Steve Feinstein
    The poor Democrats: As the Russia collusion/Mueller investigation issue disappeared into nothingness like so much skywriting wisping away into the winds, so too did the surefire issue with which the Dems thought the White House would automatically be theirs in 2020. The candidate himself was irrelevant, an afterthought. We have it in the bag, the Dems thought. It's just a matter of to which person we bestow the privilege of the presidency this time around. Let's pick a good one: a woman. No, a woman of color. No, a gay. No, a Hispanic. Perhaps an American Indian. But that slam-dunk Russia issue is gone. Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff are still flailing about, trying to collect their "undeniable" Russian collusion evidence and convince the rest of the Democratic caucus to initiate impeachment proceedings. It looks doubtful that that's going to come to pass. So the "president's a crook" angle apparently is not going to deliver a greased downhill slide into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for the Democrats. It appears at this juncture, at least that the Democrats will actually have to come up with a convincing policy platform in order to win the White House. They'll have to identify substantive issues of actual importance and persuade enough undecideds that the Democratic Party will improve their lives and make the country safer and more prosperous. What are their issues? What are the candidates putting forth thus far? Does any of them seem like a game-changer, the lynchpin to electoral victory?
    Nothing the Democrats are proposing so far is grounded in even the slimmest notion of feasibility or reality. None of their latest proposals can or will ever happen. They're all just empty promises of free giveaways, made to ignorant, greedy voters, the "low information" voters. Eliminating the insurance industry, free college tuition, reparations, the Green New Deal, none of those will ever happen, ever. The Democrats are not running on any legitimate policy proposals nothing about finding and producing new energy, nothing about keeping the country safer, no actual ideas to help grow the economy and raise employment, nothing at all about meeting any international challenges in Iran, the Middle East, Russia or elsewhere.
    Instead, now that the "Russia-Russia-Russia!" issue is gone, the Democrats have taken to promising anything, saying anything no matter how outlandish in order to win back their voters and defeat President Trump.


    Comment:
    What are their issues? Open borders and gun free zones. Now think about that. How can you have open borders and no guns? I refer you to "Operation Fast and Furious".
    Indeed, Democrats have Issues not an Issue. Progressive Marxist Socialist Democrats have a huge issue, a mental health issue. Everyone else has a problem. Not enough sanitariums to house the Democrats.
    The issues that Dems say they believe and are running on ought to be enough to get them committed to a mental institution. Killing unborn children is good to them. Removing national borders is also okay. Freeing violent criminals to prevent deportation is awesome to them. Taking away the ability of a citizen to defend themselves is obviously preferred by Dems because resisting might result hurting a bad guy. America first is evil to them.
    Actually, PMS/DSA Democrats are not interested in how any of their proposed pie-in-the-sky plans will work. They are meant to fail. Then they can rebuild the World to their liking. They are using the "Cloward-Piven Strategy" a sociopolitical theory developed by left-wing ivory tower-dwellers Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven.
    Democrats may not have anything of substance to offer but they have three other things. They have the biased media, academia and a number of GOP lightweights aka RINO's on their side. They have a 50% voter base that believes everything they say. They hope they have illegals who will vote in many states with the automatic DMV voter registration.
    Basically, PMS/DSA Democrat Leftists issues are freedom from responsibility, accountability (free education and healthcare, "like Sweden!"; and calling of anyone who doesn't agree with them Racists, liars, Uncle Tom's, or Nazi's.
    The big problem that exists for PMS/DSA Democrats is the poor state of their Plantation cities they've turned into ghetto garbage pits and festering pools of virulent diseases.

    Yes - the Democrats have an issue. And it has orange hair and suffers from mental illness and obesity.

    The GOP's ongoing attempts to take away million of people's health care is a pretty good issue. Worked wonders for the Dems in 2018.

    Perhaps if the healthcare changes imposed by the rats werent such a dismal ****ing failure, people would have warmed to them. As it is because of those changes people lost their coverage, plans, doctors and were 'gifted a system that is now so expensive that due to the high costs of their plans and deductibles, they cant use their health care. The rats gave an 11% solution that ****ed over about 50% of the population.

    Live in the now.

    Health Care Crowds Out Jobs, Taxes in Midterm Ads
    In 2018, nearly 50% of Democratic ads mentioned health care. On the Republican side, just 21% of messages address the issue. In the 29 House districts rated as tossups this election by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, only three Republicans are running ads on health care. And among all health-care ads from candidates and political groups of both parties, 39% don’t mention the ACA.

    The Democrats’ embrace of health-care messaging, eight years after all but shunning it, reflects the growing popularity of the Affordable Care Act as its provisions have come into effect. The percentage of Americans who hold favorable views of the law has surpassed the share opposing it, a gap that has grown since Republicans’ failed repeal efforts.
    Midterm exit polls: Health care is top issue for voters
    A plurality of 41 percent identified health care as the issue most important to their vote, which Democrats made the centerpiece of their campaign in races throughout the country.
    Democrats won the House with the largest midterms margin of all time
    Democrats took control of the House this year with the largest midterms margin of victory in history, surpassing the previous record of 8.7 million votes in 1974, according to NBC News election data.
    Realistically, Trump's recession will probably emerge as the biggest issue in 2020, but to the extent that health care is the second biggest issue, that's good news for the Dems.

    People who lost their coverage, etc., are just collateral damage.
    When a leftist tells you they care about the people, don't believe it.
    What the authoritarian illiberal whiners really care about is losing power and control over the lives of others...

    Case and point... The authoritarian, "put their country first" illiberals are hoping for a recession.

    You mean LIES in the now", right? because thats all the ACA was...a big lie.

    Its ok...you can admit it. Everyone already knows the rat party plan. Impose the ACA with a series of lies, then when it fails go to the next step..."oh...sorry...golly...I guess we really CANT do it without going to Universal Healthcare. Oh well......."
