October Primary Debate Recap
October 16, 2019
All talk, no solutions
Last night, the Democrats took the debate stage for the fourth time this year. This was the largest field of Democrats to take the debate stage on a single evening.
Much has changed since the last debate took place: Bernie Sanders‘s health scare, Elizabeth Warren‘s rise in the polls, Joe Biden‘s foreign corruption allegations. Much has also stayed the same since the last debate, with Democrats continuing to parrot their disastrous policy proposals and sprint farther to the left. We are seeing a Democratic field that is so extreme, they would make Vladamir Lenin himself proud.
The impeachment inquiry of President Trump was a hot topic of discussion, with every single Democrat on stage in favor of impeaching and removing President Trump from office (Tom Steyer even started a group called “Need to Impeach” back in 2017). They don’t want to let the Democratic process play out and beat him in a free and fair election next November (hint: they know they can’t), they want to overturn the will of the American electorate with a phony impeachment.
With her status as the newly minted front runner, Warren had a big target on her back, taking shots from Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, and Tulsi Gabbard. This allowed Biden to settle in a bit, looking the most comfortable he has looked in any of the debates (still with a few gaffes of course).
As per usual real solutions to real problems took a back seat to the chest-thumping and positioning by the 12 candidates on stage. They offer up free healthcare with no way to pay for it, they offer up gun confiscations with no way to carry them out, they offer support for the Kurds while offering no real solutions to America’s foreign engagements.
In addition to the fluff, there was no shortage of outright hypocrisy either. The candidates bashed President Trump for “abandoning our Kurdish allies” while simultaneously showing disdain towards our ally Israel. They rail against the upper echelons of wealth in America, while they themselves are millionaires and billionaires. They call for open borders while they live in safe and oftentimes gated communities.
What few policy proposals they did offer, are huge threats to our national security. From open borders to rejoining the absolutely disastrous Iran deal, the Democrat’s plans would undermine American safety and security.
Under President Trump, America is soaring: record-low unemployment, record-high economic numbers, a cash-strapped and reeling Iran, entreaties from North Korea, heightened border security. The Democrats want to hit the undo button and send us back to the failed administration of Barack Obama with socialist domestic policy and untenable and outright dangerous foreign policy.
Any one of these Democrats in the oval office would be mean the destruction of America’s core values of freedom and liberty in favor of big government socialism. We cannot let that happen, America is and always will be a free nation founded on the principles of life, liberty, and freedom.
