The cognitive dissonance of the “Liberal” punditry is astounding. Analysis like this is what taking defeat from victory looks like. And Trump is loving it.
Analysis like this is the path to Democratic defeat
We are playing directly into the hands of Trump. Instill a mortal fear in the Democratic base about a certain candidate and then get the one you are likely to decimate.
But wait. You botch the COVID-19 pandemic. This causes a likely slide into an economic depression. One can show causality with great advertising and repetition of data Americans see daily. And yet our punditry is talking about whether Biden is moving too far left to “appease” Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and their voters. Are you kidding me?
The millions of small businesses, many owned by individualist and conservative Republicans are not interested in whether a candidate is moving left. They want to survive. They do not want to lose their life savings, their dreams, their only source of income.
It is in these times where Libertarians, Republicans, and Conservatives beg for Progressive policies. Why? Because while their empathy never extends to others left behind by Conservative and Centrist policies when times are good, they discover a new way when they find themselves in need.
It is political malpractice to not see beyond today. It is political insanity not to understand what we have coming economically.
As people lose their jobs, those who once loved their employer’s health insurance will have none. Those who had their own insurance will not be able to afford it. Those who survived coronavirus will have enormous healthcare bills.
As Americans saddled with student debt lose their jobs, they will be unable to pay their extorted loans. Those just leaving college will likely have no jobs providing an income to pay those loans off.
I read a sad story on CNN titled “A nurse revealed the tragic last words of his coronavirus patient: ‘Who’s going to pay for it?'” It is prescient.
(CNN)Certified registered nurse anesthetist Derrick Smith is no stranger to the horrors of losing patients. But now, the coronavirus pandemic has pushed him into a completely different, “much more terrifying” reality.
Smith, who is predominantly treating Covid-19 patients at a hospital in New York City, revealed the tragic last words of a dying man he was about to place on a ventilator: “Who’s going to pay for it?” the coronavirus patient asked Smith in between labored breaths.
“They were last words I’ll never forget,” Smith told CNN.
“(This patient) was in severe respiratory distress, had difficulty speaking, and yet still his main concern was who could pay for a procedure that would his extend his life but statistically he doesn’t have a good likelihood of survival.”
Knowing that the patient was most likely not going to recover once he was intubated, Smith and his colleagues called the man’s wife to give them what may have been their last chance to say goodbye.
Most Covid-19 patients will die after being placed on ventilators, with the mortality rate reaching up to 80% in intubated coronavirus patients, Smith said. While he does not know whether his patient survived, he said it was “pretty unlikely.”
Smith called the incident “by far the worst thing” he has witnessed in his 12 years of critical care and anesthesia and said the moment shed light on a health care system that he says has been and still is failing its people.
“I was very sad and honestly, a little horrified. This demonstrates that we have a profound failure when one has to worry about their finances when they’re dealing with much bigger issues that have to do with life or death.”
Americans have been asking for Progressive policies for a long time. Clever marketing of a Mythical Center and the instilling of fear as to who is electable have been calling card of the party. Remember as our party members voted for the current likely nominee, most pointed out categorically that it was the policies of the leftist they wanted. Our current nominee would do well to heed their desires as the president, though he has no intent on doing so, will run to the left.
