Skip to comments.The Strangest Thing about the Debate
Posted on 02/27/2020 1:07:38 PM PST by Twotone
It struck me about one hour into what Politico calls the snarling incoherence of the latest Democratic presidential debate that was painfully hard to follow.
What precisely was so painful?
It was not what divided this gaggle of politicians vying for your affection. It was what united them. They all agree that their job is to have a plan for your life. This is the source of the pain.
How did it happen that all these candidates have come to believe that it is their job to plan the economy, manage your finances, fix your job, improve your wages, get you to the doctor, get your kids educated, keep you off drugs, make you equal to others, give you climate justice, grant you vacation time, and one thousand and ten other things?
That this is what they are supposed to do is not even questioned. And if you listened carefully, you will see that all of them agree that there is only one direction for government power: more. Everything without exception can be solved with more money, more power, more bureaucrats, more engagement, more plans, more intelligence, more focus.

They are power mad narcissists who CANT STAND that the average slug thinks he knows what is best for his or her self.
It’s the Democrat Party Fascist wing vrs Democrat Party Socialist wing
The Bernie clowns want the Govt to run everything. The rest of the Democrat clown show will let you keep what you own and then use the Govt to tell you everything you can, or cannot do, with it.
They are all authoritarian scum with the same agenda.
The population of the USA in 2019 according to estimates= 329.6712 Million...................
How is it that the American citizens are stuck with this group of goons??????
(posted this question on an earlier thread:)
Because the MSM is part of the system that is hell bent on all of us accepting what they plan for us
its painful because they’re the media’s brothers in arms and they aren’t attacking the great evil Trump.
This is a great article. The Democrat candidates are all statists. The state “organism” is what is important. The people who comprise the state are secondary. The rights of individuals are never important to these people.
Excellent article up to the point he slammed Trump for proposing that he be the CEO of America and likened him to the Democrats wanting to run every little detail of your life. There is absolutely NO equivalence. Trump understands the role of government in a constitutional republic and wants to let people and companies manage their own affairs. The author is just nuts when he equates Trump to the Dems in this regard.
“all of them agree that there is only one direction for government power: more. Everything without exception can be solved with more money, more power, more bureaucrats, more engagement, more plans, more intelligence, more focus.”
That’s because they are all morons.
I wish somebody would ask, “My butt is sore, will you wipe my butt?”
The Trotskyite is unscathed
Painful because there is no difference between the candidates.
Each has particular quirks, foibles, and histories to their discredit ... but there is, for most practical purposes, no difference in what kind of President each allegedly wants to be. They stand on that stage, time after time, having a heated agreement about who’s going to do the same thing best. Bernie is winning because he has given up on any notion of “paying” for it (and the complexities/absurdities thereof), and simply declares Utopia shall be delivered. They’re left with shooting at whatever chinks in armor others have.
Sociopaths are drawn to politics, and severe sociopaths are drawn to the Democratic Party.
The most severe cases become candidates for President from the Democratic Party.
I agree. He only just noticed this stuff in 2015? It’s been going on a lot longer than that. He needs to review George McGovern’s campaign in 1972.
1. They are ALL SOCIALISTS. Bernie is just more honest about it.
2. They will take all your guns at some point or try to. Guaranteed.
3. They don’t give a damn about the environment. It’s only a means to to control more private property to them.
4. They don’t give a damn about your healthcare. They just want the issue to bandy about like a bloody rag.
5. They are all for infanticide. Just look at China’s one child policy. They like it.
6. They are all wannabe dictators. Vote accordingly.............................
I asked the same question in 2008 and 12.
Two groups: (1) freedom loving, personal responsibility people and (2) nanny state loving, government dependents.
