Do you think these liberal posters here will call these candidates out for making outlandish proposals with no explanations on how to pay for them?

I don't think so. After all the lying they've identified, you'd think they'd be against hearing any from their own candidates....

As usual -- the Leftists always forget the Video Tape. The DNC Platform will be written by Committee with STRONG input from the eventual Primary winner. The last DNC platform was anti-Israel and their vote in Congress actually indicates they will continue to be Anti-Jew and Anti-Semitic.

Just a few examples of Video Tape that will play out in the 2020 Election -- it doesn't matter if these items make the Platform or not. The fact is that this is the Democratic Party of today and President Trump needs to run against the entire DNC - not just the Primary Winner.

Clip 1: Cory Booker promising billions of dollars in reparations for slavery.
Clip 2: Beto O’Rourke promising to tear down every border barrier.
Clip 3: Kirsten Gillibrand promising to shut down Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Clip 4: Elizabeth Warren promising to forgive all student loans, and then to provide free college for everyone else.
Clip 5: Mayor Pete promising a national gun registry as his first step in dismantling the Second Amendment.
Clip 6: Joe Biden promising to bankrupt the national economy by pursuing a Green New Deal that would make Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proud.
Clips 7-50: Impose regulations to impede our Economy & Raise Taxes on everyone - including our Employers.

And what about Bernie Sanders? He’s the gift that keeps on giving, promising all of the above — and a pro-communist foreign policy, too! Most of these primary Democrats are in favor and campaigning on the above list or at least substantial parts of it. Substantial Parts WILL make it to the DNC Platform.

Of course, the president could intermix quotes from Ocasio-Cortez, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Jerry Nadler, Adam Schiff, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Gavin Newsom, Andrew Cuomo, Ralph Northam and a cast of thousands. Almost any Democrat will do as a poster child for the extreme, radical anti-American agenda that will be on the table if Trump is defeated in November. No matter how much the candidate protests, it’s up to Trump to demonstrate that a victorious Democratic candidate will be beholden to the progressive, radical agenda of Ocasio-Cortez and her loon squad on the left.

At the end of the day -- the Voter choice will be Donald Trump (who you may consider boorish) OR any Democrat (who we know cares more for Illegal aliens than Americans) and wants to demolish are American way of life with their Radical ideas.

Makes you wonder what has happened to the common sense Democrat.
Illegals, Free Stuff paid for by raising outrageous taxes, restricting rights.

What about Jobs?

What about the economy ?

What are you going to do to give people opportunity to get out of poverty ?

That's what I've been saying. The old school democrats from a few years ago. The common sense Democrats as you stated. They all now seem hellbent on racing to the crazy left.

I was just saying in another thread about getting back to bread and butter basics.

Repeal ACA and make sure there is nothing to take its place. Reinstate restrictions for existing conditions.
Place land mines and snipers at the borders and kill anyone attempting to cross.
Give the military a blank check so they can spend as they please.
Mandate every citizen must own a gun when they reach 18, and that they must carry it with them at all times.
Pretend "corporations are people" and thus ensure have greater power in electing (actually buying) our officials than American citizens.
Make Donald Trump president for life.

I read it on Facebook, so it must be true, right, OP?





Most of that makes No sense and you are really reaching on the other hand what I saw on Facebook and posted here about the Dems are real topics that they are debating and trying to one up each other with.



I never claimed the list was true but they are topics that makes one go Hmmmm ??

The Platform as written.



Socialism
Kill Babies
Raise Taxes
Open Borders
Defund Military
Take Away Guns
Weaken Economy
Defend Illegal Aliens
Suppress Free Speech
Reparations
Remove Electoral College



and I would add a few



Free College

Payoff Everyone's Student Debt
The Green New Deal


and the Biggie that goes without saying but they are raging about it...



Get Trump OUT.





Do you agree with this list? Did I miss anything? Do you have anymore examples of the brilliant ideas that the Dems are running on that you would add to the list?
It wouldn't do any good to tell you that killing babies is illegal, Dems don't want to take your guns, raise taxes, have open borders, weaken the economy, suppress free speech or any of that nonsense. But I can't help who you listen to. You guys will listen to lies all day long, no matter how many lies Trump continues to tell.

This is the kind of idiocy that drove a Trump election victory in the first place. Gullible angry old white people disproportionately believe crap like this.

No, they are caricatures of topics from right wing echo chambers that make me shake my head in disbelief at how stupid some people are.

Thatís all they preach! Iíve yet to hear any of the 2020 hopefuls talk about trade or foreign policy except when theyíre knocking the POTUS for his stance. Absolutely nothing forthcoming about what their stance will be on how theyíd handle NK, China, Russia, the Middle East.... they are acting like nothing important exists outside of our own little bubble here at home.
