Quick Takeaways

  • Beto O’Rourke’s wife a Billionaire Heiress
  • Ran as a Progressive in Texas but now isn’t big on labels
  • Voted 167 times against his own party, hurting the Affordable Care Act

 

Here we are, twelve months before the presidential primary and we’re already hearing talk of potential candidacies. As of right now, the top three hopefuls that the media is talking about are Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke, and Bernie Sanders– the last of which receiving the least amount of media coverage.

But can you blame the voters who just months after Trump was unconstitutionally elected were already talking about election 2020? It has been two years into this inept administration and we’ve had three government shutdowns. I don’t blame voters at all. We were duped from all sides and I was thinking about 2020 two years ago when Trump falsely won.

On top of it all, Trump’s trade war is hurting our economy in such a way that the stock market is going up sharply one day and down sharply the next. I don’t know about you, but I think a stable economy would post gradual gains and losses over a long period of time. Sharp ups and downs gives me this feeling of artificiality, as though something isn’t adding up.

So onward we go, as the sick and tired voters that we are, to look for the one that will put an end to Trump if Mueller does not. As all our eyes are on the big three, more information is coming out about them, mostly about Beto O’Rourke. Let’s take a look.

Since 2013, Beto O’Rourke has been U.S. Representative for the 16th congressional district in Texas. And losing his bid to turn Texas blue by beating Ted Cruz, in my honest opinion, was the unofficial kick-off of his 2020 presidential campaign. He almost beat Ted Cruz who, as most of my readers remember, was told by alt-president Trump that his wife was ugly and that his dad might have been the second gunman on the grassy knoll. Fast forward to the two of them hugging.

But Beto just couldn’t pull it out a winner against Ted “thank-you-sir-may-I-have-another” Cruz. The fact that he almost turned Texas blue, however, seemed to be enough to qualify him in the media and public eye to run for president. But now we’re starting to find out some very questionable things about the winner of the Robert F. Kennedy look-alike contest.

First of all, his wife, Amy, is a billionaire Heiress and how nobody found out about that until after his defeat in Texas I’ll never know. Her father, who is a real estate mogul in El’ Paso, sold his company to GE for a whopping $2B.

Second of all, according to Newsweek, O’Rourke voted 167 times against his own party for policies that furthered the Republican agenda. And some of those bills did outright damage to the affordable care act. That’s very disturbing, considering the fact that he ran as a Progressive in Texas. Presently, O’Rourke states that he “doesn’t know” if he’s a Progressive, adding that he doesn’t like labels.  Are you kidding me?

Imagine Beto attempting to debate Trump, the sleazy master brander and disgustoramous, and having to answer for walking back his progressive values. He’d be crushed and our mistake will give us four more years of Trump.

This may sound crazy to you but I believe that Beto was chosen to keep Sanders at bay so Biden gets the nomination and there’s no hint of cheating whatsoever. I mean they’ve already learned from the mistakes of amateurish DWS and scheduled twelve debates instead of just the piddly little three broadcasted during major sports events or on weekends like last time.

Consider this: Bernie Sanders was able to change the Democratic party platform precisely because he almost defeated Hillary Clinton and then Clinton went on to lose, vindicating some on the left who didn’t think she could win. The downside was we got four years of Trump because someone didn’t want to campaign in Wisconsin or Michigan and because of a Russian asshole trying to kill America from within.

You see, I’m different. I believe it is possible to be a bad candidate and also be cheated by Russian interference.  I may lose readers over that last sentence but this is just opinion and I hope that you take the time to read my other works before you judge me on this one piece.

When Hillary Clinton raised her arms and yelled “Medicare for all will never come to pass,” that wasn’t her speaking, that was the dark monied wing of the democratic party speaking. Too many people are taking money from big pharma and have too much power, being able to control who can even run in an election, let alone win.

If Sanders comes in third during the primary, he will not be in a position to change the democratic platform and progressives will be shoved downward for a decade or two until their message and pool of candidates can recharge.

The trend I see is that Beto is strictly in the race to knock out Sanders so that Biden gets the nomination and Beto, I believe, will be repaid with his own nomination in four to eight years after having notched on his belt a presidential run.

Keep in mind, this is not a conspiracy theory (I hate those), it’s just a bet I’m placing with my readers.

Opinion | A Short List of Potential Democratic Candidates and Who Has the Best Chance of Defeating Trump

biden beto sanders

In my last opinion piece, ‘Why Donald Trump Will Lose in 2020,’ I asked my readers to subtract both the Mueller investigation and allegations of Russian collusion from the overall political equation as a way of revealing the often overlooked fact that Trump doesn’t do much, if any, work at all.

Coupling the issue of his laziness with the fact that he has nowhere near the cross over power (buyers remorse, no doubt) among voters that his campaign enjoyed in 2016, it’s beginning to look like Trump’s bid for a second term will be largely rejected no matter who his 2020 challenger is.

A minor subject that I had briefly touched upon in my latest work was that of the top three potential democratic candidates for president in 2020, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Beto O’Rourke; all highly skilled, highly qualified people with the kind of policy ideas that are sure to scare mainstream conservatives and, most importantly, Trump supporters.

And they should be very scared right now because most of Trump’s decisions will be erased by the next democratic President and new considerations will be placed on future legislation, protecting against the kind of weaponized ignorance never seen before Trump.

Joe Biden, who is from the last confirmed successful administration can remind voters what it was like when the adults were in charge. Every time his face pops up on the computer screen, people are reminded of the funny Facebook memes that began appearing shortly after the election, featuring Biden laughing to Obama about the latest shenanigan he pulled on the Trump administration.

If the energetic seventy six year old can pierce Trump’s thin skin by using humor and appearing as the more capable of the two, his path to victory will be well established. However, Biden is also a self proclaimed gaffe machine and that could be bad when his opponent is good at branding things for his supporters to repeat on social media. Could you imagine a major gaffe in one of the debates?

Democrats and Republicans play by two different sets of rules. On party is heavily scrutinized as a way for the other party to establish dominance. The other party can lie, cheat, gerrymander, and get away with most sexual assault. One really bad gaffe could ensure Trump’s second term.

Bernie Sanders, who Progressives still regard as having been cheated out of the nomination by Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, then DNC chairperson, in the 2016 Primary, is the most popular Senator in the United States who, even though he suspiciously lost his bid for the nomination, won the right to reshape the democratic platform by public demand.

Sanders is responsible for successfully making the case to the American people and convincing them that healthcare is ultimately a human right and for lifting the stigma from concepts like Democratic Socialism and a living wage. The Progressive wonder was and is so popular that membership into the Democratic Socialists of America skyrocketed during and shortly after the election came to an end.

He not only brought in more young people, he brought in more independents that often spoke of revolution against the two party system. He made people who felt alienated belong again, much the same way Trump had with his voters. If Sanders can ward off the mudslide of propaganda about socialism, he can defeat Trump. However, a hammer and sickle won’t do the Democrats any favors in swing states.

Beto O’Rourke, the state turned national phenomenon who almost turned Texas blue and is now being compared to Obama on a daily basis, is young and looks a Kennedy. He was able to electrify Democratic voters in a way that only Ted Cruz cheating could beat. All of his donations in Texas were small and not one cent came from PAC money.

He’s like an Obama/Sanders hybrid, only his progressive ingredients appear to be imitation due to his record of supporting Trump policies coming to light. That and also proclaiming to not be ‘big on labels’ saying he doesn’t know if he is a Progressive. If he can maneuver this potential mine field of a campaign trail and successfully throw off the allegations of being a false Progressive, he can win.

 


 

Of the people mentioned that could defeat Trump, Bernie Sanders appears to be the one with the best chance of winning the Democratic nomination. For more than forty years, the Independent’s message has been the same and for every bad choice either party has made there is a video of Bernie Sanders trying to stop it. To top off the list of reasons for why he has the best chance, he’s already been through it once and lost like past candidates have done before going on to be president. And above all else, the people don’t need to be forced to like him.

However, and to be fair, we (the people who are interested and paying attention) did hear similar expectations from political experts predicting that Trump would be defeated, hands down, by Hillary Clinton.

Trump didn’t lose and it was not only because of Russia’s help, it was also because his base was fixated on his outsider status as well as his permission-implying volatile rhetoric. If voters knew in 2016 what they now know about Trump, Hillary Clinton would be President today and public figures from the alt-right wouldn’t be nearly as famous.

That chance is coming again and this time the voters do know all they need to know about Donald Trump. In 2016, we didn’t know what he was going to do or how he was going to do it. We never anticipated he was going to make this many mistakes. Buyers remorse, Trump’s laziness, the public’s heightened political awareness, and a modest independent out of Vermont will prove to be the end of Donald Trump and the rejection the alt-right needs to finally get the message and just go away for good.
