The list of crazed, un-American policies that past Democrats would have found extreme is growing as more Democrats every day sign onto a platform of openly destroying the United States of America as the 2020 race for president begins.
Just look at this list of things Democrats in high places are espousing:
- Ending First Amendment with speech codes and censorship
- Repealing Second Amendment outright
- Cancelling the Electoral College
- Canceling rights for infants and allowing abortion at any time, for any reason
- Eliminating the U.S. Senate
- Taxation at 100 Percent
- Religious tests to screen out all Christians
- -Ending Capitalism
- Packing the U.S. Supreme Court
- Giving Social Security to illegal aliens
- Letting illegals and children vote
These are just a few of the dangerous positions Democrat leaders have espoused in the last few months.
The Washington Free Beacon’s editor in chief, Matthew Continetti, was quite dour about the destructive Democrat agenda, recently.
Continetti appeared on Fox News recently:
“The Democratic argument isn’t with any single one of these things: it’s not only with the Electoral College, it’s not only with the 26th Amendment, it’s not only with the state of the Supreme Court, it’s not only with equal representation of small states in the United States Senate,” Continetti said. “The Democratic argument is with the Constitution of the United States of America. The argument is because the left cannot win its arguments when they present them publicly, and in order to win, they need to change the structure.”
The Beacon goes on to note how many Democrat candidates for 2020 are proposing seriously un-American ideas.
2020 hopeful Pete Buttigieg, for instance, wants to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.
“If we want to save that institution, I think we better be ready to tune it up as well,” Buttigieg said while speaking at Saint Anselm College last week. 2020 candidate Beto O’Rourke has also discussed the issue, saying at a rally last week that he thinks expanding the Court is “an idea we should discuss.”
In addition to discussions about packing the Court and abolishing the Electoral College, some Democrats—including Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.)—have expressed support for lowering the minimum age requirement for voting to 16.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) came out in favor of abolishing the Electoral College during a CNN Town Hall on Monday night, saying, “We need to make sure that every vote counts.”
“[T]here’s a lot of wisdom in” the idea, O’Rourke agreed the next day.
Continetti noted that these ideas are antithetical to our very system.
“They are changing the Constitution of the United States, whose structure is there to preserve individual liberty,” Continetti said. “Barack Obama said he was audacious—this is audacity.”
