Prior to Tuesday, Dems’ platform was: “Trump.” Definitive platform. Hint: Trump was lesser of two evils in 2016.
Good news! After announcement Dems will control the House, a lead Dem said that priority will be: (hold breath) getting Trump’s IRS filings. Titillatingly, another Dem announced the priority to impeach Kavanaugh. Lastly, shifty move, expand Russian probe. (Word limit, good taste forbids defining Dem R-probe for you.)
Our republic is an education problem. Not solvable at university level. Maybe at school board level, with parental supervision (first, make English primary). There it can be taught that we are not a democracy. Until higher IQ citizenry, is and will be mob rule.
Socialism has not, will not work. Problem with socialism is socialism; problem with capitalism – capitalists. Ben Franklin was asked what have you given us. He replied, “A republic, madam, if you can keep it.” (Ours based on: freedom, values and faith, is why it works, for now).
“The View”’s Joy Behar showed us the eloquent Dem IQ , when she said gerrymandering was the problem so many Republicans won in the Senate. (Memo school board: Two Senators, each state, statewide elections; i.e., no gerrymandering.)
Robert Heinlein: “The United States has become a place where entertainers and professional athletes are mistaken for people of importance.”
Overheard: People moved their registration from Socialist to Democrat, raised IQ both parties. PS: With Republican President and Senate, Dem House, stalemates should keep feds out of our lives for a while. Sigh.
