The 2020 Electoral Campaign Has Already Started! Way too Early. by The Elephant's Child

(h/t imgflip.com)

Now that Michael Avenatti has dropped out of the race for the 2020 presidential nomination, due to people learning a little more about him, all sorts of other Democrats have started their campaigns. It’s more than a little early, but the determination to take on the despised Donald Trump rages. There seems to be some element of the idea that if someone like Donald Trump who was never a governor, nor had experience in Congress, or served in the Military can win an election, then surely they  can run and win too.

With the success in office of the nation’s governors, one wonders why that is a special qualification. Governor Cuomo was just inaugurated for a third term. Washington State Governor Jay Inslee is running for the presidency, but the Cato Institute recently evaluated the nation’s governors for their fiscal management of their states. Jay Inslee came in deal last, with a resounding F, followed closely by Oregon Governor Kate Brown, who also got an F. Even Jerry Brown got a low D. Nobody seemed to notice that Jay Inslee said he was running, for the entrance of Elizabeth Warren took over the news.

Beto O’Rourke is creating a solo road trip, outside of Texas, to see if he can stir up some interest (in a pickup, of course). His qualification seems to be ‘boyish good looks’ or ‘looking like Jack Kennedy’.  Julian Castro (Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary) plans to announce on Saturday, Kamala Harris is due to start a book tour tomorrow, so she must have written something, there’s Bernie Sanders who has never given up,  Senator Cory Booker (NJ ), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY). Amy Klobuchar (MI) and Sherrod Brown (Ohio) are all interested in running.

If Joe Biden (age 76), former Vice-President, chooses not to run (though he has a lead in early polls in Iowa and nationwide),  he said that family considerations will be an aspect of his decision. This does not count all the notable non politicians  like Tom Steyer, the billionaire loon who has been running his “need to impeach” campaign all over the country, or the former president of Starbucks, Howard Schultz, and there are probably a whole bunch more. Alexandria Ocassio-Cortez expressed some interest until someone explained that a basic Constitutional qualification was that you had to be at least 35 years old.

Can you list the number of Democrat Presidents who were elected on the basis of their outstanding ideas? Their specific experience that demonstrated their outstanding abilities? Candidates have always been qualified on the basis of gender, race, color, class, or general good looks. Pretty – is a big qualification for the Left.

A number of pundits have said that Joe Biden is too old, and the nomination will go to Kamala Harris, former Attorney General of California, who is a woman, and part Black.

The Constitution requires the President to be a natural-born citizen, age at least 35 years, and be 14 years a resident. George Washington had some pretty extensive qualifications. Did an outstanding job, and when he was done, packed his bags and went on home. The qualifications have not changed, but our expectations have.

The rage and viciousness of the Democrats has reached new extremes. There’s a major element of the power of — what? Imitation? Propaganda? Wanting to be one of the crowd?  I thought that “Comedienne” Kathy Griffin’s photograph of herself holding up what purported to be a severed head of President Trump — said to Democrats still stunned that Hillary was not to be president as they had expected — that any excrescence, any insult, any outrage was permitted, and they were free to do whatever they chose to express their horror and angst.

That certainly brought out all the crazies. But they have only continued to get crazier.  While pondering the limits of nationhood and the reaction to unwanted and unwelcome migrants from the Middle East and Africa in Europe and the terrorism they have brought, and our own rejection of the illegal immigrants that are using our weak immigration laws to get into the country, use our taxpayer funded welfare and medical care, and flood the country with drugs and gangs. Every major city is suffering from drugs, addiction and gang violence from organizations like MS-13. Criminals who have been previously deported are forcing their way back in, to commit more crimes. Way too many Americans have been murdered by the Democrats weak immigration laws, their desire for open borders to enhance their electoral potential, and their desire to remake the  make-up of the House of Representatives and thus increase their control of the government.  The Goal is control. Absolute control, and eliminating the Republican Party as an opposing party. They can no longer tolerate opposition.
