Man or Muppet?
C’mon, man, how can an elderly, comforting but confused candidate be dangerous to our country? Benign on the outside, hollow on the inside—an empty vessel waiting to be filled? Call him a Muppet, Trojan horse, a conduit for a politically hostile poltergeist—choose your metaphor. This isn’t a battle of personalities, it’s a battle of policies. The facts are clear, Joe Biden is a terrifying alternative to Donald Trump and I’ll tell you why.
The philosophies of the Left and Right couldn’t be more different, and neither will be the the outcome of this particular election. I’ll dig into that momentarily, but first, I have to express the bewilderment I felt as I watched Biden in one of his extremely rare interviews. It wasn’t with a hard-hitting, question-asking, policy-drilling reporter—he doesn’t do those—it was with one of the celebrities he uses for such occasions. This time it was with the popular rapper, Cardi B. He teased that he was, in effect, a kindred spirit and should be called “Joey B.” I’m certain he didn’t have the slightest notion of the filth that Cardi B spews in her massive hits that degrade women in the most foul language imaginable. If anything he’s said or done in the past leaves any doubt about his cluelessness, his association with such depravity should clinch the idea. If you don’t believe me, look up the lyrics to her latest dumpster dive of a song… just be prepared to need a scalding scrub in the shower afterwards. But enough about poor taste, let’s talk policies.
If Muppet Biden is allowed to take on the hardest job in the world as President of the United States, God help us all. While you’re googling Cardi B, look up the Democratic Party Platform and see for yourself. In a nutshell, this is what you’d look forward to:
Anti Police, defunding, reallocating, abolishing law enforcement and ICE. You like the mob violence on the streets of our major cities? What will happen when there’s no longer anyone to enforce the law? Prisons will be a thing of the past, along with no cash bail policies.
Abortion on demand, paid for by the taxpayers. This includes late-term abortion.
Second Amendment rights will be a thing of the past. Bye-bye guns owned by law-abiding citizens, but don’t worry, there will still be plenty of criminals with guns. Maybe they will share?
The word “God” will be eliminated from our Pledge of Allegiance. In fact, it has already been removed from the Democrat platform.
There would be a lot of freebies such as college, guaranteed wages with paid vacation (don’t worry about a job), healthcare for everyone, Medicare for all—including illegals. Actually, there would be no illegals because there would be open borders. Welcome! welcome! Any and all! MS13 members need not worry because there won’t be ICE or police. Everyone in South and Central America who wants to would be able to come here with guaranteed jobs! Or not. I can’t help but wonder who’s paying for all this?
Taxes WILL be raised. They are pledging trillions in new taxes. Problem is that triple and quadruple tax increases for those willing to work can only go so far. And more rules and regulations WILL encumber businesses.
There will be no school choice. But school closing is preferred anyway, so no biggie there. The dumber our kids, the better citizens they make.
Fracking, coal and natural gas will be eliminated as part of the Green New Deal. For the first time ever, our country is energy independent so that will be a thing of the past.
There’s so so so much more. But let’s just sum it up by saying our Republic would no longer be capitalistic. It would spiral into Socialism before you can say “Is Joey B a Man or a Muppet?” It's all downhill from there.
C'mon man, be smart and do your homework!
