They couldn’t possibly be serious.  Those are just campaign lies every politician said to get the nomination.  Once they get past the convention, they’ll race to the middle and govern based on the ideals of Freedom and Liberty.  In today’s episode, we are going to look at promises from the folks running to secure the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.  We’ll take a brief stroll through history and see how other presidential candidates made wild promises and what came of those ideas and compare to the crazy stuff being championed by mainstream media today.  Stay tuned, today is going to make your head spin.

On this 21st day of December, just four days away from the day we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, we should all pause for a moment and look at the good side of a potential victory by one of the Democrats running for office.  While not the author of the list below, I did spend some time verifying the content and thus feel comfortable presenting for discussion.  What we do with the information is the real question.  First, the list of benefits IF the country votes Democrat in 2020?

  1. Fred Stevens, a welder, and Joe Frisco, a bartender, neither of whom went to college, will have to pay off the student loans for Eric, an Art History major, and Emma, a Gender Studies major, because they cannot get jobs.
    -(Elizabeth Warren)
  2. Yusef Hussein, who killed 23 children by bombing their school, will be allowed to vote from prison.
    -(Bernie Sanders)
  3. Grace Thompson, who worked hard for 47 years, must give up her employer furnished medical plan and join the National Health plan.
    -(The whole slate)
  4. La’Darius Washington, who has never had a regular job, will receive a monthly income from the federal government to spend as he pleases.
    -(Amy Klobuchar)
  5. Billy White, age 16, who has trouble with subject/verb agreement in English class, still has trouble with fractions in math class, and who thinks Judge Judy is on the Supreme Court, will get to vote.
    -(Kirsten Gillibrand)
  6. Stan Billings, an avid deer hunter, will have his semi-automatic rifle (fires one shot each time you pull the trigger) taken away, or go to jail, because it looks like an AR 15.
    -(Eric Swalwell)
  7. Sven Johannson, whose grandfather immigrated to the US in 1953, will have to pay reparations to Sha’lyndia Jefferson because she THINKS her great-great-great grandfather MIGHT HAVE BEEN a slave.
    -(Cory Booker)
  8. Thomas Finch, who is an ambitious and motivated adult, cannot get a job because he doesn’t want to join a labor union.
    -(Kamala Harris)
  9. Sammy Thomas, a farmer, will no longer be able to haul his crops to market in his 3/4 ton diesel pick-up, but will have to make 43 trips in his Toyota Prius.
    -(The whole slate)
  10. The population of the US will become 76.4% Hispanic because all of the existing border wall will be torn down.
    -(Beto O’Rourke)
    -(Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez)

First, let me address the question of why I am using a posting from Facebook in today’s podcast?  Well, because Facebook testified before Congress that they are going to great measures to make sure information published is accurate.  I have to give credit where credit is due, the list above is accurate.

Second, by the time of publication, some of the candidates above have already dropped out of the election…so we’ll have to scratch out a few of the benefit statements.

Number 10 is obviously just a guess, so it shouldn’t be presented as a fact, but looking at the demographic shift in some California towns, I can see where the author derived his conclusion.

I share these notes upfront because next week I’ll discuss how Progressives use half-truths to control the narrative.  Someone, at some point, will argue that the list above is null and void because so and so dropped out of the race and thus the entire list should be dismissed and oh, by the way, the guy reading this podcast is a racist…or something or the sorts.

Ladies and gentlemen, the sentiments of the Democrats running to become President of the United States of America and insane!  We’ve always known political would say anything to get elected, but let’s examine the ideas of old versus the crap being promoted today.

Herbert Hoover promised a “Chick in every pot” while running for President in 1928.

Retired farmer Connie Watts in his 1960 bid for President of the USA promised to “keep them vine-ripened’ stickers of them mushy green tomatoes.”  He also promised to move the nation’s capital “right out there on that knoll”.

Alan Caruba promised in his 1988 run for President to appoint Vanna White of Wheel of Fortune fame as labor secretary because “she’s the only person I know who negotiated a million-dollar contract just for turning letters.”

My favorite promise didn’t come from a Presidential campaign, but from a man named Vermin Supreme (yes that is his real legal name).  He promised to “make crime against the law.”  He also promised to “fully fund time travel research” and “Legalize human meat.”

With the exception of Herbert Hoover, the others are wacko’s who never amounted to much in the media.  One could argue Hoover’s idea was a valid promise, but Anti-American.  However, the 11 statements I read at the top of this podcast all received, not only excellent media coverage, but PRAISE from the masses support the democrats running for office.  CNN referred to this year’s slate running for the democrat ticket as “visionaries” and “patriots.”

How is it visionary to declare the world is going to end in 12 years?  The party of democrats uses to be seen as people with a positive vision, like Kennedy’s famous quote, “The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it.  And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender or submission.”  How is it possible AOC comes from the same party that Kennedy helped rebuild?

I can obviously cherry-pick quotes all day long to compare and contrast democrats of old to democrats of new, but that would really be more propagandist than discussion.  Instead, let’s look at a couple of the above promises from a few of the more popular candidates and see how it compares to American values.

Senator Elizabeth Warren introduced a bill this year that would forgive the student debt of tens of millions of Americans.  I would call this a full-on attempted promise.  Fortunately, the Senate is controlled by Republicans and her effort fell flat, but as President, she has pledged to make this vision a reality.  Is giving something of value to someone who did not earn it an American principal Kennedy would have supported?  Let’s see, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”  That quote seems to fly directly in the face of Senator Warren’s idea.

How did the idea of taking from those who do and give to those who don’t become a “visionary” position (as ascribed by CNN)?  How in God’s green earth is this notion considered “patriotic”?  

When President Obama was elected President, conservatives all across America were disappointed but comfortable with the historical fact that four or eight years was just not enough time to destroy America.  Do harm, sure, but outright destroy?  Nope, it couldn’t happen.  Turns out, we were just barely right.  I believe if Hillary had succeeded President Obama, the path to destruction would have been completed by now.  Therefore, should someone with the notion that Americans can not live up to their agreed to debt obligation and thus must receive financial relief from the rest of the country get elected in 2020, I fear we are doomed.  We already witnessed one election where a majority of those who voted voted for the democrat…if, not for the electoral college, American might already be a full socialist nation.

In April of this year, Senator Bernie Sanders said he supports allowing people who are currently incarcerated to vote.  This prompted Business Insider to write “Bernie Sanders says even ‘terrible people’ in prison for crimes like the Boston Marathon bombing should be allowed to vote”.  Visionary?  Patriotic?  Or just downright evil?  This is pandering for votes at such an extreme level that I’m almost at a loss for words.

In elections past we’ve heard promises from Politicians we could immediately dismiss as just pandering for votes.  This go around, these are not empty promises, we have actual track records showing strong desires to actually execute on the crazy ideas.  The slate of candidates running for the democrat ticket are full blow socialist.  They try to soften it by referring to it as democratic socialism…that is like trying to convince the turkey that the heat inside the over is a dry heat and thus ok.

Here is another quote from President Kennedy, tell me if this doesn’t have some merit on today’s discussion.  “There is nothing in the record of the past two years when both Houses of Congress have been controlled by the Republican Party which can lead any person to believe that those promises will be fulfilled in the future. They follow the Hitler line – no matter how big the lie; repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as truth.” 

Going beyond the obvious reference to calling Republican Nazi’s…I have a future podcast on that topic…the idea here is going back to the ‘60s the idea of repeating a phrase over and over again was a path to making it truth.  The promises being vomited by today’s democrats are anti-American and anti-Capitalistic.  They are not empty promises, they are truth to goal.  If given power, I have no doubt Senator Sanders and Senator Warren would work tirelessly to execute on these crazy ideas.  Remember, before 2008 the idea of nationalized healthcare is just a crazy idea that would never see the light of the discussion in the halls of Congress.

So what do we do about it?  These are promises being made during a democrat party primary.  Time to use social media against the Progressives.  We need only share the words of democrats and the appropriate conservative response.  “Not over my dead body!”  

Democrats are counting on conservatives staying silent while they plant their evil seed in the minds of millions of young people.  Those same young people, your children, and grandchildren, must hear the other side.  They must know that trying to turn America into a Socialist utopia will not happen without a fight—and not just a fight with words!  Let us not forget the election riot of 1874 where seven were killed and 70 wounded after election tampering spurred violence.  The Progressive thugs have been calling for civil disobedience and outright violence against what they consider hate speech…they have set the stage for an armed conflict.  If we don’t use our words now, on Wednesday, November 4th, 2020, America could be facing another civil war.

Too over the top dramatic?  Stan Billings, an avid deer hunter, will have his semi-automatic rifle taken away, or go to jail because it looks like an AR 15.  -(Eric Swalwell). What American do you know will stand peacefully by while someone from Washington invades your home and seizes your property that is otherwise guaranteed by the US Constitution.

Right now we must use our words.  Don’t sit this one out, speak your peace or…well, you get the idea.
