The 4th Democratic Debate Was Terrible, As Usual

The Democrats laid another egg last night. So did CNN and the New York Times. In fact, anyone who watched that charade should feel like they lost. If nothing else, that’s more than three-and-a-half hours of life you will never get back.

This was not a debate; it was milquetoast political theater. It was the exact sort of thing that placates the type of people who don’t win you Ohio, or Pennsylvania, or Michigan. A show. A play. A poorly organized rant against all the freedoms and prosperity that 300 years of internal struggle has chiseled into the sloppy frame that is America. The way the Democrats speak about the country, it’s easy to recognize just how much they loathe and detest its very existence.

Americans Are Becoming Ideologically Possessed

Dylan Palmer | @dylanpalmer22

On a fundamental level, our political allegiances are formed and determined by our personality and temperament. Human personalities are partly inherent and partly socialized, but they will nevertheless lead us to our instinctive reactions to a wide array of political affairs. In the absence of thorough personal research on an issue, it is our temperament that guides us to an opinion. It’s no sin to have strong values that inform one on how to act. However, overarching values applied in frivolous manners don’t allow for much distinction to individual circumstances.
