Special to the Mirror by Charles Landis.
In preceding commentary, I reviewed the long history of dissent and demagoguery in America from founding to 2020 election process. Here, I explore certain of the questions that arise if the dissent and demagoguery of the Left prevails in the 2020 election?
History will record the Obama-Biden administration as the most insidious and treacherous conspiracy in American history: perfidy, deceit, duplicity, and faithless to the institutions and principles upon which this constitutional democratic republic. They called this Russiagate.
From instance of Trump election as president, Obama, Biden, Clinton, together with co-conspirators in the Congress, and the admirative deep state… the single object has been to remove a duly elected President by any means possible. But…what if a Biden-Harris election is with House and Senate majorities?
The greatest threat is Democrat control of the Senate and elimination of Senate filibuster aka the “nuclear option.” Should this be achieved, all else in the Sanders-Biden socialist agreement/manifesto can be achieved. Note. Obama said ne wanted to fundamentally change America, Sanders says the movement is a revolution, and Biden says he has reached agreement with Sanders, and he will be the most progressive president in history. Consider:
The Supreme Court will be packed to end that all three branches are controlled by the Democrat Socialist Progressive Party. One party rules all.
Washington, District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, will become states and each will have two Democrat Senators.
The founders established the Electoral college to insure larger and more populous states would not dominate smaller states. While abolishing Electoral College would require a constitutional amendment, a number of states have adopted policies that require electors vote with national popular vote. In 2016 election, Clinton had a popular vote in 5 counties of New York city sufficient to give her the popular margin over Trump nationally. Thus an area of 319 sq. miles could determine election. Large blue urban areas would dominate and rest of country would be flyover.
Assault on the Constitution. Repeatedly during confirmation hearing, Democrats asserted Judge Barrett held an extremist judicial ideology because she was an originalist in interpretation of Constitution as opposed to interpretation as living/unwritten constitution. This ignores reconciliation by legislation or amendment, and argues for legislation by the court.
Consider also the socialist Democrat agenda. First, the promise has been for universal single payer health care for citizens and aliens alike, free as a right. Free college tuition and forgiveness of student debt. Free child care an d paid maternity leave for both parents, even if out of wedlock. Universal quality affordable housing with resettlement of the urban underserved into suburban more affluent suburban areas. Universal guaranteed minimum wage and standard of living. A dd to this this the AOC Green new deal and the costs are staggering…staggering beyond sustainable.
It is said all of this will be paid for by eliminating Trump’s tax cuts and prosperity will be created by massive investment in infrastructure , including retrofitting all buildings to be more energy efficient. Beyond belief!
All of this sounds utopian, but is in reality dystopian Marxism and dialectal materialism writ large. The percent of the national economy that will be taken by social entitlement programs will grow to 75-80% of GDP and national debt will grow to 150% of GDP. Far greater than high in our history during WW II.
Most to be feared if we become a Democrat Socialist country is the los of freedoms we have. Freedom of speech is under assault by main street media and academic elitists. Ninety percent of MSM reporting is negative on Trump and conservative views. If not negative, MSMBC, ABC, NBC, CNN etc. ignore all that does not comport with leftist narrative. Journalistic integrity is dead. Assumptions made only by reference to anonymous sources and unsubstantiated allegations is substituted for reporting. Facts are factionalized.
The Biden-Harris campaign is based on hate of Trump, fear of Covid 19 , and identity politics to play the race card at every opportunity. The Dem dissent is Dem demagoguery.
