#DemDebate Showcases Party's Intellectual Conformity
The Democrats finally had a debate. Perhaps there were other debates scheduled, but they got list in Hillary's emails. Cheap shot, yes, but I had to go there. You know how the Republicans had real conversations, and exchanged ideas, got into little fights and then Donald Trump called Carly Fiorina beautiful? Yeah, nothing like that happened at the Democrat debate. Maybe that's why the ratings were' t anywhere near the GOP debates. Or we can blame Hillary's pantsuit thing.
There wasn't conversation. There wasn't a discussion of differing ideas. There wasn't even comparing and contrasting viewpoints. We probably can't even classify this thing as a "debate."
Ben Shapiro summed up the event with this tweet:
Hillary: Free health care! Sanders: Free college! Hillary: Free abortions! Sanders: Free EVERYTHING! Hillary: FREE EVERYTHING INFINITY!— Ben Shapiro (@Ben Shapiro)1444779406.0
Let's also address the old, white, wrinkly elephant in the room, shall we? At the Republican debates, we have a black guy, two latinos, some caucasian men and a woman. But looking beyond their obvious skin tone differences (which is what liberals care about most, after abortion that is), we also have career politicians and the current GOP frontrunners with no political experience whatsoever. The GOP has a diverse cast.
But let's take things a step further. The GOP has a diversity of ideas, and variety of thought on policies: Non-interventionist Rand Paul who's all about that cannabis oil; Chris Christie who basically wants to prosecute potheads; Fiorina and Rubio believe the legalization of marijuana is a states rights issue. So much variety on one plant the liberals love to use. Choices. Diversity. WEED.
The GOP field has candidates who favor a flat tax, a fair tax and even a less drastic progressive tax. Compare that to the democrats who want to tax all the things.
In the GOP field there are different views on criminal prosecution, candidates who supported/support the Iraq war, and others who are against it. And you've got people who think it's high-time we go to war with Iran and those who think diplomacy is the best option. Maybe a sit-down pancake breakfast. Muslims can eat pancakes, right?
Now, contrast that variety with the Democratic candidates. The DNC field of five old, white people answered each question in the exact same way on every issue. There was no original thought, no room for stepping away from the party's talking points. No one on that stage is their own person. Though as Hillary kept reminding everyone, she is a woman. Not to be confused with a cylon. But to be honest you guys, they all sounded like they'd been churned out of the same factory. Lenin's factory of socialist agendas. And they all wore suits.
Heck, the biggest argument they had was over who had the worst NRA rating, and who has garnered more hatred from Republicans. Hear that Republicans in congress? Without your hatred, the debate would've been even less spicy than it was. Democrats: redefining accomplishments since...well since they can't really accomplish anything positive...
When asked if black lives matter or all lives matter, they answered "black lives" specifically, "matter." Specifically matter? Does that mean they matter more than say, Hispanic lives? Gay lives? Tranny lives? Cat's lives? The DNC debate candidates love to focus on a broken, racist system. But... it's the same broken, racist system their top black guy's been running for nearly 8 years. Sorry to throw a wrench into that pipe dream, but I love to throw wrenches.
Each of the Democrats on the DNC debate stage said they want to get illegal immigrants on Obamacare. And into the voting booth. Okay, no they didn't say that last part, but that's exactly what they all want. They also want to provide illegals with
liberal indoctrination "free" college. Push one for English so I can translate all that for you: the Democrats are vote-buying. Maybe that's the real reason the Democrat candidates are all old white people...they're Santa Clauses. All of them. Except it's not the elves slaving away in the North Pole and the reindeer acting like UPS to deliver your stuff. No, no, your tax dollars are funding all this HO HO HO fun. Feel the Bern.
Here's the macro issue here. Not only is every single one of the Democratic candidates an old, white, career politician, but every single one of them agrees on pretty much everything... mainly, that all the world's problems can be solved by more free crap, taken from you by raising your taxes. This is the party who calls themselves the party of diversity. This is the party that slaps itself on the back for all the tolerance they claim they have while shoving homosexual marriage down your throat. This is the party that claims to be the party of the young, the party of the hip, the party for the poor. But they're not really. They're a party of old fuddy-duddies who've never done anything but get elected by promising to take from the workers and give to the free-loaders. A plan they've been touting and enacting to our detriment for generations.
If America want's real change, maybe we shouldn't keep going to the same dried up well of bad socialist democrat ideas. Sanders, Clinton, Chaffee, Webb... that other guy. They're all the same.
Diversity? No. Sameness and conformity. That's the real aim of liberalism.
