TOP DEMOCRATS IN THE 2020 RACE
Election in every nation exposes the untold truth of a nation’s reality. All over the world, the political arena becomes a jumbo circus for one and all to enjoy, marvel and be stupefied, when lies are blatantly told to woo the foolish voters time and again. The reality – elections are won by ‘Votes’ is the ‘Biggest Myth’ of our human existence.
The world has witnessed and watched with amazement, over and over again, how unworthy candidates win elections over capable candidates. The harsh reality that it is the Inc. Heads, who decide well in advance as to who would rule a nation to benefit the business class at large. First, they invest with large amounts in their ‘chosen candidate’ for the election to reap the benefits post-election by being nearly invisible from the voters’ mind.
The primary campaigns for the 2020 Presidential Election in the United States of America has exposed how the majority of Americans are struggling hard and facing multiple problems, while claiming themselves as the ‘Super Power’ of the world. On one hand, there is the Constitution-breaking President and on the other hand, there is a bunch of Democrats fighting tooth and nail with each other. The voters!!! Who really cares?
The second Democratic debate in Detroit saw how each of the candidates was tarnishing the image of the rest in the field. Needless to say, the CNN’s moderators Jake Tapper, Don Lemon and Dana Bash created the evening spectacle to please the Inc. Heads much to their delight. Media plays ‘the’ very significant role in highlighting the ‘so-called Inc. chosen candidate’ for the voters to vote for him or her. Majority of the media houses are owned by the powerful rich around the globe.
Even before the 2020 Presidential Election, the Democratic caucus Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has already served the President his second term on the platter by not impeaching Trump for the 10 acts of obstruction of justice, breaking the American Constitution and blocking every attempt by the Democrats to unravel the truth of Russian meddling. His never-ending racist attacks on Congressmen and Congresswoman are being condemned worldwide. But, Nancy Pelosi will not begin the impeachment proceedings, in spite of the growing demands by the Democrats, as her responsibility to preserve the sanctity of the Constitution of the land.
Is Pelosi aiding the President for his second term? How can she guarantee the Democrats and the Americans that if they will not impeach him, a Democratic President will trounce Trump in 2020? If Trump is re-elected for the second term, Pelosi solely would be responsible for it. She has delayed the impeachment proceedings after the April-released Mueller Report and Mueller’s testimony for what? After winning the House in the 2018 mid-term elections, the Democrats’ biggest failure in 2020 will be not impeaching Trump, when they should have.
It is really fascinating to watch the crowded field of Democratic Presidential candidates comprising of three Septuagenarians – Sanders, Biden and Warren – to Millennial like Buttigieg and Generation X – Gabbard and the rest. In the first two debates, the world has witnessed a select few, who makes the cut to probably become the 46th President of the United States of America. Johnny D provides this analysis as to who would make a better President for America and the World.
PETE BUTTIGIEG (37)
The South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg would make an excellent President as the only millennial in the crowded field. As a former naval intelligence officer, Buttigieg has served in Afghanistan for seven months in 2014. The Harvard-educated is a capable leader and has proved his credentials as a successful two-time Mayor of South Bend. He would make a good Commander-in-Chief with his military background and an excellent global leader.
Buttigieg is committed to end endless wars and during the debates, he has promised to bring back all American troops from Afghanistan within his first year as the next U. S. President. Unlike other fellow candidates, Buttigieg was the only candidate, who talked about global policy indicating he was ready to take on the responsibility as the Global Leader. In both the debates, he has won hearts of the voters with his progressive and practical approach.
After Trump’s Presidency, America and the World surely needs an educated millennial global leader, who will uplift lives of the people for the betterment of the world at large. He would be an excellent rival to take on Trump with his horns, as he has shown during his tough interviews. He believes in Democratic Capitalism and is proposing for a single-payer healthcare system and prefers to implement an all-payer rate setting as a stopgap.
TULSI GABBARD (38)
The Generation X Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard bounced back with her strong performance during the second debate in Detroit. In the first debate, she was ignored by MSNBC moderators Jose Diaz-Balart, Savannah Guthrie, Lester Holt, Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd. Like Buttigieg, Gabbard is the only female candidate, who has served the Hawaii Army National Guard in two combat zones – Iraq in 2004 – 2005 and Kuwait from 2008 – 2009. In 2016, Gabbard was assigned as Bernie Sanders's running mate in California for any write-in votes for Sanders during the 2016 Presidential Elections.
At 21, Tulsi Gabbard became the youngest woman to be elected to a U.S. State Legislature – the Hawaii House of Representatives in 2002. She has shown great concern about the recent U.S. – Iran escalation and wars in Afghanistan, Syria and Yemen. She would make an excellent Commander-in-Chief with her combat experience on the real grounds. On foreign policy, she describes herself as both a hawk and a dove.
During the second debate, she displayed great character by being poised, pointed, reasonable, knowledgeable, forceful, unapologetic and direct to take on Kamala Harris on Criminal Justice Reforms. She damaged Harris’ credentials as the former Attorney General of California. It will be interesting to see, if she would make the cut for the third debate in September.
JULIAN CASTRO (45)
The former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro was the youngest member of President Obama's Cabinet. From 2014 to 2017, he served as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Hillary Clinton had showered high praise about Castro’s capabilities as her possible running mate during the 2016 Presidential Election.
Castro has stood out from the crowded field in both the debates. His cool demeanour with hard punching lines has won hearts of the people. He is proposing for Medicare-for-all, universal pre-K and a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants as part of comprehensive immigration reforms. He took down Biden when he revealed, “It looks like one of us has learned the lessons of the past and one of us hasn't.” The former Vice President just couldn’t reply to Castro rhetoric.
Julian Castro is forceful and effective in his approach to take on the opposition. He has made the ‘Donor Requirement’ cut, but will have to make the ‘Polling Requirement’ cut by 28th of August to qualify for the third debate in September.
ELIZABETH WARREN (70)
The Septuagenarian looks like a cute youngster unlike Sanders and Biden. Highly educated, the former Law School Professor is a brilliant policy maker. Elizabeth Warren’s progressive approach towards every possible issue with a concrete plan makes her an ideal candidate to defeat Trump in 2020. She is focused for major governmental changes, when she is elected the next President of the United States of America.
She has vociferously taken Trump stating he is a symptom of a larger problem that has resulted in a rigged system to prop-up the rich and powerful while kicking dirt on everyone else. During her campaign, she had said, “It won't be enough to just undo the terrible acts of this administration. We can't afford to just tinker around the edges – a tax credit here, a regulation there. Our fight is for big, structural change. This is the fight of our lives. The fight to build an America, where dreams are possible and the America that works for everyone.”
She was the top contender in the first debate and received thunderous applause during the second debate, when she took on John Delaney strongly saying, “I don’t understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States to talk about what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for.” Voters are very pleased with her superb performance. Unlike all the rest, Warren has been gaining grounds consistently as the most probable Democratic nominee for the 2020 Presidential Election.
CORY BOOKER (50) did well in both the debates. However, the Senator from New Jersey may not reach the final pedestal as the Democratic nominee. He is logically strong, but elections are never won on logics. It will be interesting to see him perform at the third debate in September.
KAMALA HARRIS (55) had one of the bad days of her lifetime during the second debate, when Tulsi Gabbard took her down on her past record of Criminal Justice Reforms, just like she took down Biden in the first debate. Her past has haunted to let her down among the probable candidates. She would make an excellent opponent to take down Trump with her strong grilling power. However, Harris has shown that when she is grilled, she couldn’t defend her records straight.
JOE BIDEN (76) was hyped by the media, even before he declared his candidacy. It is quite evident that the American Inc. is backing him up as mentioned above. In the first debate, Kamala Harris busted him for his racial bias. Biden lost the second debate, even before it started when he greeted Harris saying, “Go easy on me kid.” His long chequered past, old age, lack of confidence and Obama Obama quote has failed to impress the voters.
BERNIE SANDERS (78) had lost being the 2016 Democratic nominee against Hillary Clinton. In this crowded field, he definitely stands out being self-described Democratic Socialist and progressive American. He strongly believes in workplace democracy. However, the 78-year-old Vermont Senator will not be an ideal President, because America needs a younger President, who will take the nation to the next level and not an 80-year Octogenarian.
