Democrats and Their Multiplying Enemies

My, but those Democrat candidates sure do have a lot of enemies! And they’re all law-abiding American citizens. The Party of Hate was in rare form during its Tuesday night debate.

Democrats Crash Off the Rails: Hillary an ‘Outsider,’ Bernie Wants a ‘Revolution’

The 2016 Democratic primary officially crashed off the rails on Tuesday evening at the CNN debate in Las Vegas, Nevada. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed she’s an “outsider.” Former Rhode Island Governor and Senator Lincoln Chafee dismissed a vote he cast in the U.S. Senate because he had just been appointed to the seat and because his father had just died. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley wants to put the entire nation on a renewable energy grid by 2050. And Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is pushing for a “revolution,” that former Virginia Sen.

Blue State Blues: The 17 Worst Ideas in the CA Democratic Platform

Former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee announced his campaign for the Democratic Party nomination for president this past week. One of his top priorities is to convert the United States to the metric system. Doing so, presumably, will make us more “international.” It sounds silly, yet here in California, the most recent Democratic Party Platform officially backs ideas that are just as bad. It can do so, because the opposition is so weak. Here, in non-metric style, are the top 17 worst ideas.
