Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe was being critical of the Democratic Party for offering free college and saying that is not the answer to them winning back power. He was taking shots at the four front runners for the Democratic nomination in 2020 Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders. Taking a shot at all four in one swoop by saying free college is not the answer and saying the debate has got to be about the kitchen table issues. It's not about giving away free stuff and he's flying in the face of what the current direction in which the Democratic Party is going.
Those Democratic Senators are not alone in that thinking. Look at the city of New York and the progressive agenda being pushed by Mayor Bill De Blasio. In recent days he has been talking about health care for all people in New York City including for illegal immigrants, but the mayor didn’t stop there. Mayor de Blasio was giving an interview with New York magazine. He was lamenting about, of all things, private property rights in New York City. I don't care if you're a Democrat this should scare you. Mayor de Blasio said
What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be.
Isn't it wonderful that they believe that government power is the answer. This is also the exact same party that is doing everything they can to strip away every bit of power from Donald Trump.
This is the same Democratic Party that changed the rules of the United States Senate to have a simple majority for votes because they couldn't get to 60 with Republican opposition.
Democrat love power when they have it and they hate it when they don't. As a matter of fact their mantra has been we speak truth to power. De Blasio has the power and he wants even more of it by virtue of your tax dollars and by virtue of laws that restrict everything you do.
Let’s compare this to the actions of President Trump. He has freed up the American taxpayers by giving back more of their own money. He is not confiscating as much as was confiscated previously by the federal government. He has freed them up by virtue of slashing regulation and less intrusion into the lives of the businesses of America. He is allowing Americans to flourish and run as good corporate citizens without oversight and redundant regulation. We have seen an economy that respond to all of this the way we knew it would..... positively.
The Democrats want to go in the opposite direction. They want to control what you can do, where you can do it and how you can do it. They want to tell you where you can build a building, who's going to occupy it and how much you can collect in rent. You know what that's called….it's called Venezuela.
The Mayor of New York City wants a government that takes away you land rights and he believes that's what most Americans want as well. As a Republican I laugh at it. If I were a Democrat it would terrify me that that's my party.
