Where is the inclusion within the Democrat Party?
Don’t they accept diverse people or is it all talk?
If they would President Trump could serve them also. It is really too bad that history, as a core subject, is not taught in public school education. That is probably why so many young Americans know so little about how things came about.
In a recent New Yorker magazine, many statements were made that just are not truthful.
In one column, the statement is made “four decades ago, Watergate revealed the potential of the modern presidency for abuse of power on a vast scale.”
First of all, Watergate was a simple burglary which was not known to President Nixon. His mistake was to hide the news when he found out. There was no vast scale. Only in the eyes of the Democrat Congress, which pulled out of Vietnam, leaving three million of those who helped America to die at the hands of the Communists.
The New Yorker story goes on, “Trump has the temperament of a leader who doesn’t distinguish between his private desires and demons and the public interest. If he’s true to his word, he’ll ignore the Constitution, by imposing a religious test on immigrants and citizens alike.”
Who has ignored the Constitution from day one? It has been President Obama. His executive orders were his means of bypassing a Congress he could or did not wish to work with. There also has been no talk of religious tests. Why should the country not know who is coming in? Why is it so important to allow millions of undocumented people into the country? The why is to make sure the election of 2016 never happens again. The working man and woman in 2016 were as easily abandoned by the Democrats as the Vietnamese in 1975.
The New Yorker article by George Packer laments, “Bipartisan congressional action on behalf of the public good sounds as quaint as antenna TV.”
Did Harry Reid attempt to work with Republicans when he was Majority Leader? No, he did not. Obamacare was passed with no Republican support. The “Nuclear Option” was used in 2013 to gut long-established Senate rules concerning filibuster. Many think this move uprooted “the time honored deliberative nature of the Senate.” The irony is since the option was used once, it certainly can be again to undo Dodd Frank and Obamacare.
What the Democrat senators have said is – the rule today is what the majority says it is, not the 60 votes that once were required. With this in mind, there is no way the minority can block Trump appointments to judgeships or to his administration.
Mr. Packer says, “During Obama’s presidency, Republican senators exploited ancient rules in order to put up massive resistance. Filibusters and holds became routine ways of taking budgets hostage and blocking appointments.” Here is another falsehood. The government for years has operated without a budget and yet Obama doubled the national debt.
Mr. Packer concludes by saying the Democrat Party must “learn again how to talk and listen to other American’s, especially those who elected Trump because they felt ignored and left behind. President Trump is almost certain to betray them.”
I do not think so. The Democrats today mainly exist on the coasts. They exist in Hollywood and on Wall Street. It really is deplorable how easily the Democrats have abandoned their base for simply more power over lives they care so little about.
