The Democrat Party is a monster of its own creation — and it’s on the verge of ravishing our economic recovery.
The days of civil political discourse and reasoned debate about public policy are now for the history books. The Democrat Party has been hijacked by radical socialist ideologues who will do everything in their power to dethrone the Party’s moderate leaders.
Remarkably, the Democrats have shifted so far to the left that they can’t even rally behind Rep. Nancy Pelosi, a proven House leader who has repeatedly delivered results for her party.
Say what you want about Pelosi, but the congresswoman has been a successful politician who graciously offered to work with President Trump and the GOP following the Democrats’ takeover of the House in the midterms.
“In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats,” President Trump tweeted earlier this month. “If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!”
Pelosi and her fellow Democrat leaders such as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, however, made a huge tactical mistake during President Trump’s first two years in office — instead of striking a bipartisan tone while they were in the minority, as Pelosi did on election night, they repeatedly sought to undermine his agenda.
They obstructed the confirmation process of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh by tolerating, and even encouraging, lawless demonstrations in the halls of Congress.
They voted unanimously against the President’s middle-class tax cuts that have lowered the tax burden for 90 percent of Americans.
They continuously challenged President Trump’s efforts to secure our border, calling him a racist every time he tried to take steps to rein in illegal immigration.
In speech after speech, top Democrats also hinted at impeachment and vowed to scrap President Trump’s policies at the earliest possible opportunity.
Make no mistake, this rhetoric became a catalyst for the unhinged radicals who used it to justify their obsessive desire to undermine Donald Trump’s presidency by any means necessary.
As a result, many newly-elected Democrats want nothing to do with compromise and are committed to dethroning Pelosi and replacing her with someone who will pursue their radical objectives, like “Medicare for All.”
Sadly, the resulting civil war within the Democrat Party only means one thing — the Democrats will not work to enhance America’s prosperity. After all, they still don’t have any serious policy proposals designed to help our country prosper.
Instead of meaningful cooperation, they are now preparing dozens of new congressional investigations intended to frustrate and undermine the President. This is not what the American people want from their government.
No matter what comes of the ongoing internal strife within the Democrat Party, the bruised leadership that emerges will eventually be forced to shift even further to the left to accommodate the radical newcomers.
For years, the Democrats have flirted with the radical left, praising socialist policies that would completely devastate our society. In November, they elected some of those socialists to Congress.
The Democrat Party truly is a monster of its own creation — and it now holds the rest of America hostage to its unhinged and obstructionist whims. It’s time for them to reform their ways and work with our President for the good of the American people.
