As I've said before, I'm not even against all of their ideals. I am against how they plan to go about executing those ideals. That is one thing Obama
couldn't never wrap his head around because of his blind idealism: how you go about effecting change is just as important as the why. Simply because
him and many people like him on both sides of the spectrum think that politics is a zero-sum war game where there are winners and losers. But in that
type of game, there are no winners, only losers. As Obama found out the hard way because in his massive blind spot was hiding an orange menace
hellbent on doing nothing but devouring his legacy like something out of Stephen King's 'The Langoliers'. All of this because of a fundamental lack of
understanding in causality.
It is also no coincide that autocratic opportunists the world over made their hay when the most blinded ideologue in recent American politics was in
the White House. Opportunists love ideologues. And this new breed of ideologue spawning on the left make Obama's blindness out to be like a beacon in
a dark, stormy sea. Why do you think it is that they are so wildly inaccurate in describing their opposition? I don't think it is out of knowing
malice. It's sheer ignorance. They can't see them.
This is why if you support something like the idea of healthcare reform. It is imperative that you reject the progressive movement. At least in its
current form of bend the knee or else. A Bernie Sanders is just as deleterious to a lasting solution to healthcare reform as a Donald Trump. Trump
favors stagnation and not moving forward and ignoring the problem. While Sanders champions grabbing the problem firmly in both hands and then running
over the edge of a cliff and free-falling into a 1,000 foot drop.
Let me put it this way. If Donald Trump was the swift reaction to Barack Obama then what do you think will be the response to an uncloaked far-left
socialist president? How hard and swift will that reaction be? Do you think any policy that president puts in place will withstand that response? The
only chance it would have is if it were done so through totalitarian measures and then our democracy is lost either way.
Just look at the Green New Deal. It should be called the Venezuela plan. Because that is how it is structured. It is the same kind of quicksand that
just sunk what should have been the most prosperous country in South America. Do you really want to risk the hope of true, meaningful healthcare
reform by entangling it into something as precariously put together as the Green New Deal? That is not how it is done. No other country that has
universal healthcare has done it this way -- except maybe the Nazis. It is literally putting a gun to your head and spinning the chamber. It is
The best thing the democrats can do in 2020 is run a moderate candidate on a platform of calm, reason, unity, and stability. This will in actuality
pacify the right more than the left and this candidate will waltz into the White House in a landslide victory (as long as the far left doesn't lose
their cool and write-in Sanders or Warren). With most of the reasonable right pacified, the far left will still feel the need to run their candidates
in the following mid-terms - and they will win there too. Then there will be a large number of progressives in the legislature and a center-left
president in the White House. That is how you get your progressive ideas to come to fruition. The biggest lie being told right now is that we need a
single progressive messiah to win the White House and bring their vision into reality. But that won't be the case, because what did we already learn
earlier? Oh yeah, causality.
