If I were a Democrat I would be thrilled by the New Democratic Party. Just think of all the new faces and policies they have brought to the table.
First, there’s Maxine Waters who in 20 years as a Congresswoman has brought three bills up to be voted on and one of those was the naming of a post office: WOW, hard not to be impressed. Her only solution to any problem is summed up in two words: “impeach Trump.”
Then there is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the new Democrat Congresswoman from New York, a self avowed socialist from Brooklyn, NY.
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez has apparently been watching too much Harry Potter — she thinks the 32 trillion needed over the next 10 years to pay for the Democrat Medicare-for-All plan will just magically appear. But the appearance of 32 trillion is just part of her magical thinking because she also wants free college for everyone, vastly increased welfare, and open borders which will cost taxpayers many trillions more. The only thing this shining star of the new Democratic Party is missing is any answer at all to the question of how she intends to realistically fund any of it.
And let’s not forget Bernie. Admittedly not a new face, this socialist candidate for President promotes a dozen monumentally expensive socialist policies with absolutely no way to pay for any of them.
And then there are Senators Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren — both want to increase taxes to abusive levels, reinstate the job killing regulations President Trump got rid of, and eliminate ICE allowing criminal illegal aliens to run wild raping our kids, beheading our citizens, and killing our cops.
Senator Warren has even said she could support a 70% to 90% tax rate on some taxpayers … What?
Don’t believe Democrats would really pass all this crazy stuff if they got control of Congress? Look at what they’re doing in the cities and states they control. Outlawing lemonade stands run by 7 year olds. Banning construction of new power plants. Establishing sanctuary status to protect illegal aliens who are violent criminals from immigration enforcement agencies. Sponsoring the early release of criminals from jails and prisons, then allowing them to form homeless camps in parks and other public spaces.
And then there are the new laws cropping up that ban the use of straws, even threatening jail sentences for waiters who offer straws to customers. Got a young child who uses a sippy cup? Too bad, no straw for you. Disabled and need a straw to drink? Too bad, no straw for you.
Apparently the straw Nazis think the fact that straws make up a whopping 2/10ths of 1 percent of the plastic waste in this country justifies their massive regulations. It’s a wonder they aren’t banning bottled water, clearly a far bigger culprit in the plastic trash crisis.
Yes, Democrats are fortunate they have a new political party …The Socialist Democratic Party of the United States. It’s perfect for people who want something with a distinctly un-American ring to it.
