All is lost. He who must not be named will be re-elected and the country will descend into civil war– unless the Democrats can get their acts together.

As the weeks wind down towards the Democratic Convention, it seems that all of the candidates have endorsed radical proposals such as Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, decriminalizing immigration violations, citizenship for Dreamers, and so on.  Not to be outdone, He who must not be named has said the Democrats are endorsing abortion until birth and infanticide after, free medical care for illegal aliens, gun confiscation, raising taxes on the middle class, etc. etc.

I thought the platform that the candidate would run on was supposed to be decided at the Democratic Convention, not during the first debate.  All of the candidates need to dial back their policy proposals just a little.

At the same time, it is clearly necessary for candidates to show sympathy to people laden with student debt working minimum wage jobs, people who are stuck in rural areas with no jobs and no transportation, etc. etc.  That was Clinton’s biggest failing in the last election: her neglect of the suffering people with no voice.  They turned to Him because he claimed that he would do something about their plight.  Clinton should have called him out for lying every time his lips move.

Not that there’s anything wrong with Warren’s detailed policy proposals.  It’s just that untutored morons will be the swing votes in this election, just like every election, and they need to be fed their meat.  Stay away from reparations for slavery, any mention of undocumented immigrants, abortion after the second trimester, and all that stuff.  The rest can wait ’til after Democrats putatively win the election.  Just like Republicans, Democrats need to dissemble a bit about some of those unpopular radical ideas.
