The Progressive Race to the Bottom
By VICTOR DAVIS HANSON

The old Democratic party championed the working classes, wanted secure borders to protect middle-class union wage earners, and focused generous federal entitlement help on the citizen poor. Civil rights were defined as equality of opportunity for all.
That party is long dead. An updated Hubert Humphrey or even Bill Clinton would not recognize any of the present “Democrats.”

The Obama Presidency also proved a watershed. It convinced Democrats that a leftist could win and move the nation radically leftward (“fundamentally transforming the nation”) by executive orders, court decisions handed down by activist judges, and the force of popular culture. In a mere eight years, formerly debatable issues such as gay marriage, planet-threatening global warming, and transgenderism in the military became boilerplate requisites of Democratic politics. Obama moved the goal posts far to the left, to such a degree that leftists today now consider the left-wing Obamas almost quaint.
The new socialism is also attributable to ten years of anemic annual economic growth below 3 percent, massive student debt, open borders, changing demography, and radical new approaches to marriage and home ownership that have radicalized the younger electorate.

Right wing media must sit around in bars dreaming up stuff they know is complete horseshit laughing their asses off while writing these pieces. On the one hand, they all know its pure bullshit. On the other hand, they all know it sells and makes them rich and popular. What a racket.

As the Democrats continue their move to the left, and pose a threat to our Constitution, loyal Americans must stand against these low-life, anti-God, anti-American crazies. The left have no sensible ideas, have nothing to offer Americans. Oh, free health care for all!!! Except, it's not free and it's going to cost Americans dearly. We were told by Democrats that Obamacare was great ----- yet, now they want to abandon it and put up their next failed policy.

When Democrats promise things for free, hold onto your wallet. And, when they say "tax the rich" they will be coming for you too.

It seems that every election is a turning point for us. 2020 won't be any different. Do we want to go back to the failed Obama policies of tax and spend, more and more regulations, driving businesses out of the U.S.? Or, do we want to advance the U.S., so every American who wants a job, can have a job. In fact, we are there now. Jobs are plentiful. Good paying jobs.

The Democrats have also become the Party of racism, as they just elected anti-Semitics and the top 3 officials in VA have exposed themselves.

The GOP has it's own issues, but is there any doubt which Party actually represents the majority of Americans?

How many current big time progressives are calling to "Abolish ICE"?

Let's see...AOC, and Gillibrand, that I have heard of.

Of course they are totally nuts...

Oh, shut up. You don't get to sit here and piously bad-mouth everyone you disagree with while you support the idiot and chief! Great gravy, the end of the line is just around the corner for the liars, cheats and dead-beats. Blaming the dems is no longer going to cut it. Jobs are plentiful? If you like minimum wage, I agree. Trumps ace up his sleeve is the economy and he will live and die by it. Covering his ass when recession sets in later this year will not hide that fact.

A new dawn awaits.

Correct, you are supposed to include original content. The latest crew to show up here and start all the threads on this site feels entitled to not follow the rules, apparently.
