Use Caution When Making Social Changes

Posted on 08/13/2019. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: |

I have suffered through two disastrous presidential elections when the democratic candidates had catastrophic loses. One was George McGovern’s lose to Richard Nixon in 1972 and the other was Walter Mondale’s lose to Ronald Regan in 1984.     

George McGovern won one state, Massachusetts and DC in the 1972 election
Walter Mondale won one state, Minnesota and DC in the 1948 election

A number of the democratic candidates are proposing significant changes relative to citizen verses government responsibilities, changes that are controversial and have the support of the more left democratic voters but questionable support from more moderate democrats, independents and likely few if any republicans.

If the first priority of the democratic party is to defeat Trump, this call for drastic changes in the way our country is organized and operates at this time may be counter productive.

Better to be addressing how to help the farmers who are going through some difficult times, proposing changes to health care that are understandable and possible rather than starting over and adapting a sound byte that can never pass the legislative hurdles, address the disparity between the wealthy and the workers in the country with programs that can be implemented, and fix the damn roads and bridges.
