I saw this today on Facebook and thought that it pretty much summed up the Democrat running platform for 2020.



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?

Nope. That's the far-right conservative caricature of the Democratic platform. But 40% of Americans believe it.

Well if you are into hyperbole, yes. Using only the declared 2020 Dem candidates as a pool of info.

Once could also say

Socialism --> NA pure hyperbole too broad. Words mean things and socialism still means government owned production.
Kill Babies --> Absolute pro choice
Raise Taxes --> Raise taxes on the wealthy
Open Borders --> Loosen immigration restrictions. I have not seen any actually say true open borders.
Defund Military --> Reduce military spending
Take Away Guns --> Reduce gun rights
Weaken Economy --> NA pure hyperbole too broad and quite frankly, BS.
Defend Illegal Aliens --> Increase rights for illegal aliens
Suppress Free Speech --> Have not seen any candidates for speech codes like on university campus.
Reparations --> Reparations
Remove Electoral College --> Go to popular vote system. (I am not denying this is absolutely a Dem advantage)

Free College --> Free College
Payoff Everyone's Student Debt --> Payoff Everyone's Student Debt
The Green New Deal --> The Green New Deal

Interestingly I found your list, the last three, to be the most accurately represented.

Not one damn thing for American citizens. He does realize he's running for the President of the United States, right?

It is a caricature but is it really that far off?



Ottomobeale broke it down rather well in his post but I still see the list as a warning for those that still Love America to heed and fight against.



Another talking scheme from the Left is to


Take down Wall Street and break up large companies. This is a favorite topic of Granny Warren.







What is hard to understand is how desperate the Left seems to be to dismantle and destroy the who and what that makes America great and hand the spoils over to the poor to lift them up until the money runs out. Have they ever heard the phrase, " if you give a man a fish he will eat for the day but if you teach him to fish he will eat for a lifetime"? The Dems seem content to create an underclass that will be beholding to them for everything and that is not very "American"..

And I just saw this description of the GOP platform on Facebook:

Fascism.
Outlawing abortions and putting women in prison for having one.
Eliminate taxes for all multi-million corporations.
Eliminate taxes for the 1%.
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?
