The Democrats have an aging party leadership and the similarity to how Communism works is very remarkable. All the old Dems are solidly in place and it looks like it would take a miracle to dislodge any of them. That means that there is no room for young blood and new ideas. It also means that the party will continue to drive itself farther and farther left into total Socialism. Here is how it looks now.
As Written By Monica Showalter for the American Thinker:
Like the old gray men of the Kremlin, the Democratic Party is led by gerontocrats. Like their socialist counterparts from that bygone era in the 1980s, they just don’t want to leave. Nancy Pelosi’s recent insistence on staying, despite her obvious health failings, is but one example, and there are others. According to Mike Allen’s Axios, the top three Democrats in the House leadership are all near 80 years old. And it extends to the Democrats who’d like to unseat President Trump in the next election.
Three of the most talked-about 2020 contenders are Sen. Bernie Sanders, 76; Sen. Elizabeth Warren, 68; and former Vice President Joe Biden, 74.
Hillary Clinton, now 70, should be added to the list as well.
If I had to guess why this is happening, my first would be that these people are all socialists, and socialism, as an idea, fails in action every time you try it. It’s spent, and as the Venezuelan default piece I wrote this morning shows, it’s absolutely unable to point the finger at itself to rectify its errors and then reform.
My second thought was that the Democrats did manage to get a socialist in power eight years ago: the youthful Barack Obama, who campaigned on race and “making history” and image to such an extent that he was able to obscure the socialism he was really about. The Democrats might not be able to try that trick again, given that the U.S. is in critical need of a growing economy and has barely started on that path with the election of President Trump. The Venezuelan alternative of no growth along with ruin and default as the result of nineteen years of socialism is too well known, at least for …..
