And if so why do none of their headliners ever speak of them?

Yes there is the $15 Minimum Wage push, that quite frankly sounds like lip service as there are no actions towards that goal, no viable explanations of how small businesses would survive such an expense and I have heard lower amounts such as $10 and $12 pushed when even mentioned.

Infrastructure is mentioned, but again no action. The border wall could have be a large public works project contracted out to private enterprise, but now fall to I would guess the Army Corp of Engineers. At the same time military housing really needs major renovations. To me this is infinitely a better use of military budget and resources, but now they have to build the wall to secure the American people.

Why would anyone sacrifice $30 Billion because they couldn’t have $33 Billion because it really shouldn’t require advanced degrees in economics to understand that losing 10% is better than losing 100% or that 90% profit is better than 0%.

Party of inclusion; except for smokers, gun owners, successful entrepreneurs, differering political opinions, etc.

Is there any thing pro-America about any Democrat?

You've obviously misunderstood.

One shouldn't be "pro" america, it's a horrible country that is destroying the entire world.

Their die hard supporters don't like america, the far left DNC doesn't like america, hence they have no policies other than 'anti"....just what their lunatic voters want.


ETA: That's really why they are in such a bad position. They are pandering to a very vocal lunatic fringe of their party. Since they have no choice other than to "entice" these people, they have gone full retard. Completely unaware that they are driving away moderate dems and a significant portion of independent america.

They have one-liners and "ideas" that they espouse to but don't really support.

They are much more worried about banning firearms from citizens, fighting to kill babies during birth, pressing men's rights to occupy women's showers and professional sports, and driving expanded social programs and immigration to increase their voter base... oh, and getting rid of the electoral college so that they can rule over the rest of us forever from a few cities.

The simple answer is NO. There has been a serious brain washing done in our schools trying to teach them that socialism is the way to go, that this experiment in America is a failure.

I watched with amusement when AOC and crew protested Amazon moving into NYC. 25,000 good paying jobs? GONE. BRING THEM HERE!!!!

These idiots are simply giving Trump and Republicans the next 4 years, and then some. They are finally showing their true colors.

A small business could survive with fifteen buck an hour minimum wage, but contracting labor which means no unemployment benefits, no employer match on Medicare or Social Security, and no health coverage or paid time off for employees. That is the way I would go now if they raised the minimum wage, nobody would be my employee, they would also have to have their own liability insurance and would not qualify for workers comp from me.

The Democrats are stupid, we had way more bennies in the past and a living wage when they kept their socialistic noses sniffing wine.

No.

Current Democratic policy (and their entire election platform) can be expressed in one meme.



Americans don't matter to them. America doesn't matter to them.

Control over the citizenry.... THAT matters to them.

I was going to answer but then I realized it's really just a rhetorical question, in that, you don't actually want an answer but just want an opportunity to deride Democrats. The previous posters have pretty much covered your expectations.

But she wants to invest that 3 Billion they were going to give Amazon as a tax break (as though they have it in the bank) into the district!

She doesn't understand that they will no longer GET those Billions in the first place!

You are not subsidizing the labor idiot, you are taxing them a bit less in order to entice them to pay billions in a lower tax rate. Now you get nothing.... LOL

If they do, history shows they are notorious for making their "claims" go in reverse.

Usually according to plans and scripts 😎

Good example is their past support for border security.

Most of their "policies" were just standard Red Herrings and ruses 😎

Ask not what your country can do for you, and been replaced withwhat free snip can it give you.

And every post has been right on target.
Maybe you could explain to us what and where their pro-American policies are?
I know it will be a very very short list.

Or is it just a question you can't answer, but still felt you needed to reply?

Throw an answer out there so we can discuss it.

Actually I want to see a legitimate effort to find something that they are actually selling that might work. As I said the Fight For $15 is lackluster especially with $10 and $12 thrown in the mix. Rather divided on the message put forward.

I do suspect I may have to point out flaws that were not considered on more zealous ideas as a platform. Like how we don’t yet have Warp Drive, Inertia Dampeners and Deflector Shields if the idea was to build The Enterprise to find exoplanets for colonization. Dying of old age before arriving anywhere, being slammed against the bulkheads or skewered by a small asteroid would make for a bad experience quickly.

But I am open to the possibility there might be something out there. I mean Jimmy Carter has my respect for his work with Habitat for Humanity. But Carter’s creation of the Department of Energy still has not got us off foreign oil. And none of the ideas put forward have developments of hydroelectric nor nuclear production of power ensuring energy independence since, well Reagan really.

You can't crybully the nation into communism.

Look at your stupid post.

You used the victim role and tried to emotionally manipulate everyone else, because you have no backbone
and are feckless.

It's what teenagers do to their parents.

Congrats, kiddo

what is "Pro America" can you really say that the Republicans, the Right and even Trump are "Pro America"?

are you saying "america" as the occupied territory or the people who happen to live here?

I wish I could say, "Yes".

But I can't.

It's disturbing.
