In Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, presidential candidate Joe Biden made instant history. With a confused statement regarding the capital gains tax, the candidate forgot for a brief moment that he was running as a Democrat. The 78-year-old man firmly asserted that he would “eliminate the capital gains tax” in an exchange with competitors. Following the debate, Biden apologized, explaining that he thought for a moment that he was running for the Libertarian nomination.
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.
Sleepy Joe Biden is coming for your guns. And this time, it’s not the typical “I’ll buy back your rifles and steal what you don’t turn over.” He’s going a step further, moving the Democrats in the direction of a new woke form of gun control: he’s coming after 3D-printable ghost gun code. This, however, is merely a pipe dream that would trample on the first, fourth, and second amendments of the Constitution.
Donald Trump may be on his presidential death-bed. Talks of impeachment following the Ukraine scandal lead many to believe the New York businessman is in his final days. Acid-wash the state of corruption. Hunt down those that look to foreign leaders to meddle in the American political process. We need pure, straightforward, old-fashioned democracy in the US. Or at least that’s what those who still have a degree of faith in the policial system say. However, Trump is nothing but a ritual sacrifice. Cutting out his heart on the altar of the holy democratic process would only serve to mask the hollow morality of Washington D.C.
It’s been over two weeks since the Democratic debates in Florida and the nation is still reeling. Attention has not come off the candidates’ wins, losses, and scandals for a single second. The puff pieces and local news health broadcasts have practically nowhere to go. A “winner” of the second Democratic debate was US Senator Kamala Harris. The media and her supporters praised her take-down of Joe Biden and her stellar performance on the evening of the debate. Harris’ supporters think of her as a perfect progressive candidate in support of all the standard and fringe left economic and social issues.
