The 4th Democratic Presidential Debate was held  last night at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio.

I watched most of it - it was pretty much what I expected -  it opened with cliché Trump bashing, then went on to tax hikes and gun confiscation. . .  "mandatory buy-backs" they like to call it.   

Comrade Bernie wants to destroy capitalism with a "political revolution".   That was a little frightening.  He said there's no reason to allow people to get rich off the sweat of other's labor.   He suggested that government should be in control of the production and distribution of goods and services.

Creepy Joe tried to wriggle out of the Ukraine quagmire, but remained ensnared:

"Look, my son did nothing wrong,  I did nothing wrong. I carried out the policy of the United States government in rooting out corruption in Ukraine. And that's what we should be focusing on.

Pocahontas lied hard and said that costs will go up for the wealthy and for big corporations but down for middle class families with her Free Medicare For All plan.  Liar Liar pants on fire.  Does she think Americans are gullible enough to believe that tripe?   The audience certainly did.  They applauded.  The fact is, Medicare For All will cost middle class taxpayers $32 Trillion over 10 years.   

Tulsi Gabbard was very strong. She said that she was the only one the debate stage who was qualified to make the decision to send US troops to intervene in foreign civil wars: 

“But here's the real question I believe you should be asking is:  Who is fit to serve as our commander-in-chief?  This is the most important responsibility that the president has."

She's got a point.  It's obviously the truth, so her opponents wisely let the comment go unchallenged.

There were no clear winners, though - only losers.  Apparently, socialism, tax hikes and gun confiscation are all the dems have to offer.  Sad!

Trump chimes in about last night's Democratic Debate:

"You would think there is NO WAY that any of the Democrat Candidates that we witnessed last night could possibly become President of the United States. Now you see why they have no choice but to push a totally illegal & absurd Impeachment of one of the most successful Presidents!"

Self-serving, but mostly true.

Hardly true at all I'd say, being the resident old codger contrarian as I am. Smiley Smiley Smiley

(Edit: I'm almost giddy about being given a position of such importance! Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley)

And we are still going to be given the choice of The Donald or Hillary.

Didn't we go through that already?

Is anybody hoping that the tide will reverse, and Hillary will be given the same powers that The Donald now claims?

Who trust's her that much? Is Huma still in her life?

Pocahontas reveals her plan to fund $3.5 Trillion/yr  Medicare For All.

She says there will be no Tax Hikes for the middle class.   Of course, that's a big fat lie.

She says that the mega-rich will pay for it.  She will eliminate itemized deductions for the wealthy and limit other tax breaks.

Could this actually work?    Of course not.    It's socialist rabbit-out-of-the-hat nonsense.   

Pocahontas also said this wealth tax will fund Universal Childcare and "Free" college.

Is anyone stupid enough to believe this claptrap?    Yes.   In Fact, most democrats fall for it.

Fortunately, most independent voters know its BS, and they are the largest voting bloc in the country.  They will vote against Pocahontas and they will vote against socialism.

Alas, they think understanding Keynesian economics is all they need to do.

They think any economics besides the most recently massaged theories of Lord Keynes are just wrong.

Edit: I think it's called "New Neo-Keynesian theory".

Whatever, it still involves the government controlling the supply of money and interest rates.

DEMOCRATS CANNOT BE TRUSTED TO MANAGE MONEY, AND THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW A ROBUST ECONOMY WORKS.

Here is a quote from another forum.  It's a fairly common view among many Independent voters.

Quote:
I will never vote for Trump, the stable genius who is anything but. I don't even need to explain why. The man is a disaster.

But then, I don't want to vote for the nutty left either. I was planning to support Elizabeth Warren as the lesser evil but as a matter of fact I'm sick and tired of all the proposals by the Dems for all sorts of freebies that are impossible to pay for, and other follies like free elective (non-emergency) health care for illegal aliens, a measure that would have horrible unintended consequences, as I've detailed in other posts of mine on this matter.

So, I desperately want a centrist candidate to enter the race (but a viable one, not lackluster grandpa half-demented Joe Biden).
  ( by GreatNews2Night)

My point is that dems have gone completely off the rails.   The only voters that would consider one of these socialist newcomers is a democrat.  And the indies far outnumber the dems.

Unless Trump commits some horrendous crime like a mass-murder on Fifth Avenue, dems are in a really tough spot.

Maybe they might consider that new guy Tom Steyer:

• Voluntary buyback program

• Universal background checks

• Opposes Medicare for All

• ACA (Obamacare):  Rethink the whole system

• Boost taxes / redistribution

Never mind.  He's almost as socialist as the rest of these losers.    Undecided

The TwoParties have been off the rails since Goldwater and his supporters were purged from the Republican Party.

Our federal government has been off the rails since the New Deal Court upended the Constitution.

My favorite part is "Rethink the whole system created by the ACA"... There's nothing better than concrete policy proposals like that! Cheesy

Edit: I have an idea, somebody could run on a platform of Hope and Change!
