(New York Sun) Events in Iowa this week show the Democratic Party is skidding off the rails. Nineteen Democrats running for president took the stage at Cedar Rapids on Sunday to woo voters. It was a circus of left-wingers going bonkers for things most Americans don’t want.
The frontrunners back abortion any time before birth, abolishing ICE (the immigration enforcement agency), outlawing gas-burning cars, shutting down fossil-fuel industries that employ millions and redistributing wealth. These White House contenders are veering far left, even though polls show half their own party’s voters aren’t “liberal.”
It’s a worrisome spectacle. For 150 years, our two-party system has provided political stability envied by the rest of the world. Republicans and Democrats put forward broad agendas to compete for the widest number of voters. When one party wins, the other cedes power and cooperates in governing.
