Democrats Have Become A Party Without Principles

Democrats Have Become A Party Without Principles
February 17

For months now, the only reason for the existence of the Democratic Party is to defeat President Trump in the 2020 General Election – along with every Republican officeholder in the land.  Virtually every Democrat presidential candidate and all those Party leaders have repeatedly stated their intention to ignore deep policy differences in order to make sure Trump does not get a second term.  Issues are secondary to politics and power.

If socialist Senator Bernie Sanders wants to take America down the ruinous road of nationalized healthcare, the end of private health insurance, open borders and higher taxes –so be it.  If he is the nominee, they will be in lockstep behind him.

If the Democrat nominee is one of the so-called moderates – such as Joe Biden or Amy Klobuchar — who would preserve the private insurance industry, cut expenses and maybe even protect the borders, so be it.  Democrats will cast aside their long-held aversion to money in politics – especially from corporate executives and Wall Street billionaires.  The Party will again lockstep behind the candidate.

For 2020, issues are pushed off to the back burner by Democrats.  It is arguable that the Democrats’ 2020 election platform was developed the day Trump was elected President – and it has only one plank. Defeat Trump.

It has been the Democrats obsession for the past three-plus years.  They tried to take Trump down with a Special Counsel investigation.  They tried to take him down with an impeachment.  The tried to take him down by transforming a biased media into a totally corrupt propaganda industry.

God knows what Democrats and the media would do if Trump should get re-elected.  Another four years of investigations.  Another impeachment.  Riots in the streets.  They just cannot wrap their heads around even the possibility of a Trump victory in 2020.

There is a saying that “if your only tool is a hammer, all your problems will look like nails.”  With an obsessive desire to take out Trump, every problem in America looks like Trump.  He is being criticized for the coronavirus epidemic that has hardly touched America.  He is blamed for bullying in schools. He is blamed for hurricanes and brush fires.  He is blamed for the pandemic liberal depression.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough even blames Trump for things he never did – and would never do.  Scarborough recently claimed that Trump would arrest reporters – including Scarborough, himself –judges, Republican apostates, like Senator Mitt Romney –even Democrat opponents.

This seems more like a psychological projection since it has been the Democrats who have been trying have Trump put in jail.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi even said she would like to see him in the slammer.

This deranged obsessive behavior is one of the reasons that Democrats — and the folks in the Fourth Estate — rarely discuss issues – other than to lament that they are NOT discussing issues.  Rather, they take up the role of prosecutor to “indict” Trump in the court-of-public opinion

Yes, there is plenty of reasons to criticize Trump but, my God, it should not take up the vast majority of network airtime and miles of column-inches in newsprint.

One cannot help but wonder if this myopic attention to “all things Trump” will actually work.  It has not so far – and there is a good chance it will backfire in November.  After all, how much of this grinding and mendacious criticism can a person – a voter – take?

A political party that kicks principles, issues and policies to the gutter in an unhinged obsession to defeat the President of the United States does not deserve the attention or votes of rational, objective and intelligent people – people who ARE concerned with principles, issues and policies.

So, there ‘tis.
