Demented Democrats, anyone? The woods are full of them. The more common one is the basement dweller, as seen on television debating Donald Trump. This particular specimen is a great metaphor for how deep and dark Democrats are taking the world.

President Trump mined lies to be fact-checked. The problem is that no one with any backbone is able to break out of “the bubble” and find the truth. They’re in league with “Basement Biden,” hidden from the truth and voting against it.

The biggest problem with the presidential debates (despite the improved format of allowing two minutes of uninterrupted speaking with the threat of muting the microphone) is that the candidates have no way to tailor their comments or know the overall time reamining in the debate. Candidates are interrupted before or during an issue. It’s as unfair to the candidates as it is to the public. Put up an hourglass so the candidates can fit in their points on time.

Democrats are right regarding oil as a transition fuel toward renewables. Health care is a human right, but it’s a 50/50 proposition. It should come under the category of “wellness care,” meaning that the individual is informed and working to be healthy. Rather than “Big Brother” monitoring habits and alerting dangers, “Little Doctor” could be constantly monitoring and warning of health risks in real time. I daresay most medical costs are preventable.

Renewables and wellness care are two areas that resonate with the people, and which Democrats and Republicans must work together to implement.
