Arkansas Republican, Sen. Tom Cotton, recently insisted that the Democrats have taken leave of their senses by pushing anti-American socialism for the 2020 campaign.
“We are going into a highly consequential election. The Democrats have truly lost their mind,” Sen. Cotton told radio host John Catsimatidis on Sunday, according to The Hill.
Cotton was talking about the Democrat’s vying with each other to grab the limelight from each other ahead of the 2020 Democrat primaries.
Cotton was particularly amazed at last week’s Democrat debates where each candidate was trying to out do his or her opponents by proposing even more extreme, anti-American policies and plans than the next one.
“This is truly … an election about whether America will be a socialist nation. I don’t think Americans want to be a socialist nation. But it will be incumbent upon all Americans to get out and make their voices heard in this election,” Cotton said in disgust.
Several Democrats have been trying to set themselves up as the “moderate” candidate in the Democrat race. For instance, the media keeps claiming that former Vice President Joe Biden is a “moderate” compared to many of the others, but there is little actual light between Biden and the rest of the socialist ideas being pushed by the rest of the far leftists in the race.
They are all for gun confiscation, “free” national healthcare (which could not possibly be free), forgiveness of student debt, abortion on demand — even after the child is born — and one crazy, un-American idea after another.
Naturally, the GOP is reacting by pushing the “S” word on the Democrats, and rightfully so.
“I’m not buying the storyline of progressive versus moderate,” Louisiana Republican Sen. John Kennedy told Fox News.
“I would remind you that the lesser of two socialists is still a socialist,” Kennedy said. “Even from the less liberal candidates, I heard a job-killing, soul-crushing socialist agenda.”
Too true. The Democrat Party is dead. The only thing left is anti-American socialism.
