Voting rights for terrorists and rapists, death penalty for unborn babies up to 9 months

Boston Marathon terrorist about to place bomb behind 8-year-old child

Wow. It seems to me that the Democrats had a pretty good chance of competing against Trump in the 2020 election, with their presumed nominee, Bernie Sanders. He’s wildly popular with young people. He’s raising tons of money from rich progressives. All Bernie has to do is just not say anything crazy, and he’ll be competitive. Unfortunately, he can’t control himself.

Here’s a report from the radically-leftist Boston Herald:

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders says the right to vote should extend to those in jail — even the Boston Marathon bomber.

“If somebody commits a serious crime — sexual assault, murder — they’re going to be punished,” Sanders said in his CNN town hall talk Monday night. But, “I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people.”

The majority of convicted criminals would vote Democrat if they could, because Democrats are less strict on crime than Republicans. Democrats are always looking to allow more people who will vote Democrat to vote. They want to lower the voting age, because young people who don’t pay taxes naturally vote for free stuff. And they also want to import low-skilled immigrants and put them on a path to citizenship. Low-skilled immigrants pay less into the system than they use in education, health care, etc. They also vote Democrat.

Medicare for All

Bernie also has a long list of big spending programs, because he thinks that $22 trillion in debt and trillion dollar deficits is no big deal. But the truth is, we’re already out of money for the big social welfare programs that Democrats already passed. We certainly don’t have money for any new ones.

Far-left CBS News explains:

Social Security is on a path to become insolvent in 2035, with only enough money cover about 80 percent of its obligations.

Medicare would become insolvent even sooner, by 2026, if no changes are made to payroll taxes or how health providers are paid.

[…][M]any Democratic presidential candidates are calling for expanding Medicare benefits — even proposing “Medicare for All” — rather than addressing the program’s worsening finances.

How will Democrats pay for MORE spending when we can’t pay for the spending we already have? Tax increases won’t be enough, so they’ll have to nationalize private 401K retirement plans like other socialist nations have.

And what about Medicare for All? Well, they can just seize the money that’s being used to buy private health insurance now, and put everyone into a government-run single payer system. That’s what happens in Canada right now. People who pay taxes pay for the all the costs, but they still have to get in line behind those who don’t pay anything in taxes. The average cost (to middle-class taxpayers) is about $11,000 per year. That’s a lot more than people pay for private health insurance which delivers higher quality care. But the costs are higher for less quality, because the people who pay into the system are covering the people who don’t pay.

And remember, abortion through all nine months of pregnancy is taxpayer-funded in Canada’s single payer system. Pro-life taxpayers subsidize abortions. If you don’t like it, you can leave the country.

Infanticide

All of the Democrat presidential candidates support infanticide, according to this article from The Stream:

 On February 25, 44 Democrat senators, including all 6 declared presidential candidates, voted against the Born Alive Protection Act. Put another way, they voted for infanticide.

New candidate Pete Buttigieg is also in favor of infanticide: abortion through all nine months of pregnancy.

If you’re voting for a Democrat in 2020, then you’re going to get infanticide if they win. No use complaining later that you’re pro-life if you support the killing of viable unborn children who survive botched abortions.

Raising the minimum wage

Another policy supported by many Democrats is raising federal minimum wage rates.

Let’s take a look at a study reported  in the Daily Caller:

California’s minimum wage increase has cost the state thousands of jobs worth of growth in the state’s booming restaurant industry, according to a recent study by the University of California Riverside.

California passed a bill in 2016 to bring the state’s minimum wage up to $15 an hour. For businesses with more than 25 employees, the state’s minimum wage rose to $12 in January and will hit $15 in January of 2022. Other businesses have until 2023 before the full $15-an-hour minimum takes effect.

[…]Researchers also found that the minimum wage slowed growth more in low-income areas.

[…]Researchers estimate that the minimum wage increases will cost the state roughly 30,000 jobs from 2017 to 2022.

If you force businesses to pay workers more, them employers are left with no choice but to lay off workers, or cut hours.

Minimum wage jobs are entry level jobs. They’re not meant to allow people to buy a house, have children, or travel the world on private jets. People get them in order to get something on their resumes so that they can move up to more challenging jobs that pay more. If a person doesn’t want to move up to a more challenging job that pays more, then they shouldn’t be complaining that they can’t make the same life choices as software engineers, nurses and electricians. Jobs don’t all pay the same, because some are harder than others.

If voters chose candidates based on whether their policies would actually work to prevent poverty, they would never vote for Democrats. But so many people in America don’t vote based on what results policies will achieve. They vote in order to feel something about themselves. Transferring wealth from “rich” employers to “poor” minimum wage workers feels good. So they vote for it. And when those workers are laid off, they don’t care because they’ve already stopped paying attention.

    1. The scary thing is that many will support it, Kind Lady. (see AOC)

      The even scarier thing is the number of fake “Christians” who will vote for this Death Cult Party “in the Name of Jesus.”

      1. Let’s just hope that all the real Christians who gambled on Trump in 2016 will remember how he has come through in so many areas (judges, the economy, Israel, energy, etc.), vote Republican en masse, and prevent these far-Leftwing loonies from gaining/keeping power.

        It’s up to us, people.

        “Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.” (James 4:17).

  1. Sadly for leftists more people unemployed just means more people dependent on the government and so more votes for them. Explaining how increasing minimum wage will increase unemployment is not going to dissuade all of them from increasing minimum wage. The power hungry ones know this already and are happy to do it.

    1. People who are independent of government are a real problem for those who want to grow government, which is why socialists also have an interest in destroying marriage and the family with no-fault divorce, sex “education”, taxpayer-funded contraceptives, etc. They have to make reckless, irresponsible, immoral citizens if they have any hope of ruling us through a large centralized government.

  2. WK, you mentioned the left’s intent/hope to nationalize private retirement accounts above. Would you mind blogging about this in the future or sharing your thoughts & some (brief/starter) resources below? Most of the speculative info I can find online is several years old, and this will probably (sadly) be something that will be important to learn how to protect against as our country “progresses”. Thank you!

  3. It is important to take this in proper perspective. People like Beanie, AOC and their statements which appears to people who are under 30s. and the way it is portrayed. First, the media appear to inflate/ distort the amount of people who agrees with whatever Bernie’s statements. Second, Bernie redefine what is right and wrong and make it as if it is norm. Third, when those small followers realize the fallacy of his plan it will crumble like sand castle wash away by the waves. Fourth, at every opportunity we must point those fallacies out as the younger generation education, experience is lacking and need to be brought up to date.

    I appreciate WK post as this helps us have a dialogue and hopefully spread the false perception .

    1. It would be nice if Democrats would just insist that their candidate have a little tiny bit of experience implementing their solutions at the state level, as governor of a blue state. Then we could judge them by their results rather than their self-congratulatory speculations.
