ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I characterize the 2020 Democratic message as the “utmost campaign” — utmost control of the federal government and our lives by utilizing utmost control of taxation, climate, health care, immigration, economics and anything else ‘blue wave’ fabulists think the unwashed must have. They intend to substitute the heavy, dull, gray blanket of top-down control and government-mandated equal outcomes for the wisdom and success of individualism and ingenuity, which has achieved record low unemployment and rising wages in our rollicking free enterprise system. And who are these controllers? Why, the very same who hungered for autocratic governance when George Washington wisely eschewed the mantle and title of royalty and chose instead a democratic republic with the Electoral College. The progressive peloton intends to protect the yellow jersey of intersectionality, the tangled web that binds together social-justice warriors and identity and grievance politics. The Democrats of 2020 are the antithesis of the America we love.
