How the Democrats lost the election in their debate
...They are a party with no limiting principles when it comes to illegal immigration. There are probably a billion people in this world who would like to come to the US and get free healthcare. Democrats have no policy that would contain such a migration. They apparently think that all those people want to come to this country and vote for free stuff.
During the Thursday debate on left-leaning MSNBC, the Democratic presidential candidates raised their hands in agreement with the idea that illegal immigration should no longer be considered a crime.
Later came another question.
"This is a show-of-hands question and hold them up so people can see,” said co-moderator Savannah Guthrie. “Raise your hand if your government plan would provide (health care) coverage for undocumented immigrants.”
Biden raised his, as did Sanders, Harris, Andrew Yang, Pete Buttigieg, Kirsten Gillibrand, Michael Bennet, the magical Marianne Williamson, John Hickenlooper and Eric Swalwell.
Did any of them think how a declaration of open borders policy and free health care for undocumented immigrants who break into the U.S. would play out in a general election?
Did any of them pause before engaging in self-destructive pandering?
What defines an election isn’t take-down dramas.
What defines elections, and political parties, are ideas with sweep, ideas that announce “This is who we are” to the voters.
Like the Democrats’ new open borders policy. And their agreement to provide “free” health care to immigrants here illegally.
