Dems: How To Lose 2020 In 10 Candidates

It was just one night, and that was the best thing about the latest Democratic debate for the 2020 presidential nomination.

In the third debate of an anticipated 12 debates, the 10 qualifying candidates in a field that once-topped 25, took the stage on Thursday, Sept. 12 at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas.

Moderated by members of ABC News, the debate lasted a paltry 2 hours and 45 minutes. Much of the time was spent between the three frontrunners and elderly candidates of the bunch: Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren. Since the debate marked the first time the three would be on a stage together, it was anticipated that Biden would take his jabs at Warren in an effort to keep her at bay. This is especially noteworthy as at least one poll narrowed Biden’s overall lead of 24 percent to Warren’s 18 percent, which is a full five-point drop in support for Biden.

But, as it turned out, perhaps the most fiery comment of the night came out of the mouth of a Gen X candidate, Julian Castro, who took his punch at Biden, with his all-too-often gaffes on timing of things. When Biden discussed his perspective on buying in to his healthcare plan, Castro had more than a few words for him.

“You just said two minutes ago that they would have to buy in,” said Castro, the former Housing and Urban Development Secretary, who, like Biden, served in the Obama administration. “Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago? Are you forgetting already what you said just two minutes ago?”

Much of the evening was spent pandering as far to the left as possible, with the usual socialist utopian ideas spouting from every mouth. Perhaps the idea most egregious, based on the responses by the social media hordes, came out of Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s mouth when he went full-on confiscation of guns.

“Hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15, your AK-47,” O’Rourke said to a roar of cheers and applause from the audience on the college campus.

Sanders and Warren attempted to outflank one another with cries for giving everything free while taxing the wealthiest of Americans. Many of those proposals were able to be inserted when discussion turned to education, a topic that has been lightly touched upon since the debates began.

“We move to see that every teacher in America makes at least $60,000 a year,” Sanders said. He added that there will be universal pre-K, cost to attend colleges and universities will be nothing, and all college debt will be canceled. Warren echoed the sentiment, adding that she was the only educator on the stage. She would later reminisce about playing with her “dollies” and teaching them when she was a small child.

But some of the highest pandering came in the forms of outright lies. Be it Warren claiming that all scientists continue to claim there is less time for survival due to climate change, or Kamala Harris saying living conditions in Los Angeles are better now than a few decades ago, thanks to action by her justice department and the taking on of fossil fuel companies, the lies were thickly lathered.

“We didn’t lock people up in cages; we didn’t separate families,” Biden said of the Obama administration as a comparison to the Trump administration.

The problem is, his assertion is blatantly false.

It took until the end of the debate for honesty to shine, and it came with the final question of the evening, in which each candidate was asked to discuss his or her most serious professional setback and to talk about resilience.

As the candidates followed with their answers, it became ever so clear that America truly is a great country. The answers by those on stage included Warren explaining how she overcame adversity and got ahead. Harris talked about running for political positions when she was told not to and was able to keep moving up the political ladder. And then Pete Buttigieg talked about his coming out as a gay man, and how he still won re-election (because the truth is no one really cares about his sexuality).

That entire segment of the debate demonstrated how the 10 candidates are the privileged ones because they live in this country. America is still the land of opportunities, and individuals can achieve their dreams. But the candidates will not view it this way. Instead they will continue to pander and lie, making claims that America is nothing more than a racist, sexist, no good, horrible, very bad country. Because if they saw it any other way, they would not be calling themselves Democrats.

And that is how the Dems will lose in 2020 with 10 candidates.
