Turner: Appalled by leftward move of Democratic Party
As a registered non-affiliated voter, having read Joe Biden's policy recommendations, I am appalled at how the progressive, liberal, socialist wing of the Democratic Party plans to reshape American politics.
On page one, they start with climate change and focus on net-zero emissions, then move on to things like expanded social security (page 73), focus on public schools and the de-funding of charter schools (page 83), study of gun violence (page 100) and even benefits for undocumented immigrants. Even reshaping the banking industry (page 74) — similar to 1995 which caused the recession in 2008 — just so they can help those with lower incomes. Duh! Didn't these people learn anything in the last 25 years? Or have they been inside the beltway too long?
Read Biden's proposed policies and do the math for yourself before taking the big step towards socialism. There is good and bad, but is it the right thing for America? Will Americans miss their freedoms? How will our indebted country pay for all their new government benefits? Why isn't Biden talking about his (the DNC-approved) policies? Has he actually read them?
