If you wonder whether the squad and AOC will corrupt Joe Biden, you’ve already missed the point.
Joe Biden was never a conscientious moderate. He does not have a guiding political philosophy. He’s never thought through his positions. Biden is a hack, a sock puppet, and a craven opportunist.
As Biden’s approval rating falls, he’s more exposed to the rantings of The Squad. Democrat Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ilhan Omar (MN), Ayanna Pressley (MA), and Rashida Tlaib (MI) are gathering forces to themselves. Democrat Senators Bernie Sanders (VT) and Elizabeth Warren (MA) are waiting in the wings for a pincer maneuver to finish the coup de grace on US financial responsibility.
Liberals were crushed in the House in 2020. The Senate is divided with somewhat reasonable Democrats in Joe Manchin (WV) and Krysten Sinema (AZ), who remain grounded as a smokescreen for their more rabid colleagues. But they will not be able to hold the hoard of ravenous statistics at bay. We are now careening toward the cliff with the accelerator on the flood Thelma and Louise style.
Americans have never fully embraced communism, but we are past slouching toward Moscow. The slippery slope of socialism has become a waterslide, and it is party time for The Squad.
If the first seven months of the Joe Biden anti-presidency has proven anything, it is that Democrats operate with a hive mind and no regard for the American people. Government spending and fiscal responsibility are no longer a campaign issue. We have surpassed all reasonable limits on government largess because of the willingness of politicians to take advantage of the COVID-19 crisis.
Democrats frantically need to squander $6 trillion in some concoction of infrastructure, union jobs, and handouts to donors and friends of liberals. It will guarantee that no dependable Republican Party or President can ever put this nation back together again.
A budget deficit will only drive the economy into the ground and create more inflation. Democrats are not concerned when the US dollar’s position as the global reserve currency is threatened. Future generations of Americans will not be able to pay off the massive debt this geriatric generation of Baby Boomers is strapping with our country with their finger on the trigger of debt-TNT.
Joe Manchin is one of the few Democrats willing to call out the fools in his party. Unfortunately, nobody in the DNC reads the Wall Street Journal where he posts his opposition. And even if they did read the Financial Bible or the actual Bible, they will stop at nothing before passing immense new spending bills and budgets which break the bank.
Democrat Representative James Clyburn (SC), who is 81 years old, thinks that $3.5 trillion should be enough money to satisfy his own party’s insatiable appetite. But Rashida Tlaib is now ready to negotiate for even more. Give an inch, take a mile, she must think. Her allies live in metropolitan communities and could care less about the rest of the country. She is stoking animosity between urban and suburban or rural voters, along with race and class divisions.
There is no compromise on this spending bill, and they all know it. A government shutdown is the only realistic option to prevent a total collapse of our economy and, eventually, our nation.
