Whether she realizes it or not, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is not in charge of the Democratic party. Neither is former President Barack Obama or any other neoliberal politician, who is considered moderate by 2019 standards. It’s three freshman Congresswoman, and it’s concerning. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar are three radical leftists who are running the Democratic party because they are the only ones interesting enough for people to follow on Twitter. They are nothing but headline grabbers, doing nothing except pushing an idealistic agenda that would do nothing but rob Americans of their paychecks.
These women are also grabbing the attention of broke, uninformed millennials, because they are pushing policies largely based on social justice issues and free stuff, like the Green New Deal. The three are self-righteous, by thinking that they are ending the fascist Donald Trump regime, when they are doing nothing but driving the average American farther away from the Democratic party.
The reason the Democrats won the House in 2018 was that many Republican Congresspeople were aloof to issues in their district. This was present in Orange County, California, where the new tax reform angered many citizens, as it left out the upper middle class. Although this is an unfortunate side effect of the Republican agenda, people in places like Orange County will quickly crawl back to them in 2020, because these three Congresswomen are dragging the other newly elected Representatives down towards socialism, which will result in even higher taxes.
Many conservatives are sad to say this but… Nancy Pelosi needs to take control of her party! These three have made comments that could be deemed anti-Semitic and anti-American, and Democrats need some sense of normality to keep votes. But Pelosi will not reclaim her power, so gone are the days of progressivism in the Democratic party, where the goal was to achieve a strong central government to create a better life for all. The new Democratic party is about sinking the wealthy and the middle class to the bottom and wanting the poor dependent on the government. Upward mobility would be a thing of the past because people would not be able to keep the majority of their paychecks. Quality of healthcare would decrease, as doctors would be working under a lesser salary. Citizens would be left defenseless if their government becomes tyrannical, as all weapons would be illegal.
Except the radical Democrats do not put it like that. They call it a free college education, universal healthcare, raising the minimum wage, gun control, and stopping hate speech. It is nothing but totalitarianism hiding behind a mask.
