In 2016, I greatly enjoyed watching all of the republican presidential debates. I found them extremely amusing, informative, and often humorous. Now, in 2019, I could not stop myself from watching the democratic presidential debates. The following will be labeled an essay because it is my opinion. Almost all articles published on this website are fact based articles designed to inform the American Public and this website is not designed to support any political party, any religious ideology, or any candidate for any political office. It is designed to promote more honest government, the U.S. Constitution, and the rule of Law and Justice in the U.S.
My major impression from watching the 2019 democratic presidential debates was that I continue to like the honesty and integrity displayed by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. Bernie continues to remind me of a kindly Uncle. I admire and respect Bernie for his honesty and truthfulness by stating clearly that he is a socialist.
Since I devoutly believe in free market capitalism, I would never vote for Bernie for President. Yet I continue to like Bernie and feel deeply saddened that Bernie was deprived of the Democratic nomination in 2016, by the Clinton Crime family through very nefarious means.
If Trump is re-elected in 2020, I would hope that President Trump would appoint Bernie to be an Ambassador to either Venezuela or Cuba so Mr. Sanders can observe firsthand what socialism can do for a country. I mean this very respectfully to Mr. Sanders.
Until the 2019 Democratic Debates, I had no idea who Tulsi Gabbard was and what she stood for in politics. She was most impressive to me in the first debate. However, after being kept out of the debate on September/12/2019, Ms. Gabbard is now parroting the democrat ideology of the extremist left in order to pander to the left neo-terrorists of the democrat party.
I believe that Ms. Gabbard would have been much better positioned if she had continued to display the sensible moderation that she displayed in her first debate. Now, like the remaining women left in the debates, Gabbard seems like a false prophet and a charlatan who sold her soul for some debate time. She would have been much better off going to Iowa and New Hampshire and saying: ” Hi my name is Tulsi Gabbard and the democrat establishment has kept me from entering the political debate because I am a sane and sensible moderate who will work for a better America.” Too bad Tulsi, once you lost your integrity, you will not be able to regain it.
Julian Castro is another individual that I knew very little about until the 2019 Democratic Debates. I thought that Castro was rude, vile, and impolite to other candidates during the debates. Castro has employed a campaign tactic that I consider to be more like political terrorism than political strategy.
Julian Castro has a brother, Joaquin Castro, who is a supporter and a de facto spokesman for Julian Castro. Joaquin Castro, obviously with the consent of brother Julian, posted the names and other information about 44 big Trump supporters just before President Trump was scheduled to visit Texas. The names of the individuals were in the San Antonio, Texas area.
While this is not illegal, it appears to be calling upon the terrorist left wing and mentally ill individuals in the democrat party to harass law abiding citizens who have a different political view. I remind my readers that on June 14, 2017, James Hodgkinson shot U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner, and lobbyist Zach Bath at a practice session for a congressional baseball game in Virginia. Hodgkinson was a Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016 and wanted to kill republicans. His only known question before the shooting was that he wanted to know if those people were republicans. The shootout lasted for ten minutes and Hodgkinson died in a hospital from gunshot wounds as police and security returned fire to protect elected representatives of the U.S.
I believe that the intent of the Castro brothers was to inform individuals like Hodgkinson to harass law abiding Americans of a different political party. I believe that the Castro brothers indulged in a reckless act that has become all too common by the left terrorist democrats in recent years since 2016. Also, I believe that the law abiding citizens of Iowa and New Hampshire will terminate Castro’s campaign by not supporting such a vile and reprehensible individual.
