Horrible, immoral, from a macroeconomic perspective, insane. Having said that, what the fuck is the Democrats’ plan?! What is the vision? If we give THESE particular Democrats power, what will they do to see better policy outcomes, what would make them more effective fighters against this type of stuff, and what will they do to fight the top donors behind the Republicans, as well as their own top donors? Thing is, I don’t have to ask and no one needs to answer. No one knows, cause the Democrats have no coherent set of policies nationally, and their leadership thinks that nothing radical needs to change, and their leadership supports (without exception) candidates dead set against policies that would actually address our largest issues, progressive policies that are popular and would work better than the policies their chosen candidates support. And before anyone responds with the “we just need to beat the Republicans”, keep in mind that this context, which people like Pelosi don’t radically want to change, led to Trump. We on the left are not trying to reason with clear thinking and moral people, we are trying to reason with corrupt politicians that are cut off from the rest of the country, and them winning or losing will be determined by how much they inspire people to actually vote. The Republicans are entirely beatable, but only if the Democrats get people to care enough to vote. What exactly are they doing to get people to have faith in this system, them or to show that they are a viable alternative that will fight for working people? Cause if what I have seen in this primary season, really since the 2016 primaries, is any sign, not a fucking thing. It seems to amount to: 1. Trump is horrible. 2. Russia. 3. Stormy Daniels.
And they aren’t even competent enough to explain how bad the economy is for most people. How hard is it, given the totality of the data? Is all you have to do to nullify any critique of the economy is to site the unemployment rate (been on a constant downward trajectory long before Trump took office)?
