Elizabeth Warren prepares 2020 Presidential run

January 1, 2019

  I told myself I was not going to start writing about the 2020 election until, oh I don’t know, at least 2020 but at least I can say I officially made it to 2019. What caused me to break my promise to myself? The worst kept secret in American politics and a warning to my readers.

  Over the weekend the Senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, made it official by announcing she was starting an exploratory committee in preparation for a 2020 Presidential run. Here is part of her statement:

“I never thought I would run for anything, ever, in my life, but America’s middle class is getting hollowed out, and opportunity for too many of our young people is shrinking. So, I’m in this fight all the way. … I’m going to build a grassroots campaign. It’s already got people from all across this country who are going to be part of it, and together, we’re going to make change. And if people out there see it and want to be part of it, I hope they go to elizabethwarren.com and join us. Because this is how we’re going to build the movement that will change America.”

  First, it is an untruth for her to say she never thought she would run for anything. The whole motivation for her leaving Oklahoma and carpetbagging her way to Massachusetts was to set up a Presidential run in the future. Politicians are motivated by ambition and the desire for power and Elizabeth Warren is no different.

  Now for the warning: Elizabeth Warren’s announcement was met with joy from the right. Conservative and right wing voters are laughing at the prospect of an Elizabeth Warren campaign and even Donald Trump said he is looking forward to it but, at the risk of using a warn out cliche, this is a case of be careful what you wish for.

  The message of change is a strong one, this will be at least the fourth campaign in a row which is focused on changing Washington and the message has worked all three times. Sure, nothing ever really changes but the voters never catch on while they are enticed by the shiny object and blinded with something that is eternally promised.

  And then there is the fact many of us do not want to admit but it seems to be the truth. The youth in this country have gone far more to the left than any of us likes to believe. We like to think the sky-screamers are few and far between, that the videos we see are just anomalies, but they are becoming much too regular an occurrence to just write off at this point. The promise of socialism and the destruction of capitalism seems to appeal to a growing number of the American people who have not yet learned from the lessons of history.

  Sure, you might be laughing now, and it could be fun to watch her campaign for a couple of years but we might not be laughing at the end. Remember, Hillary Clinton supporters were hoping for, and laughing at the prospects of, the possibility to run against Donald Trump and how did that turn out? And you do not even have to go back that far, does the name Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ring a bell?

    No one with 1% American Indian blood, has every ‘won’ that before – esp while serving time in GITMO so “that” should prove very interesting 😊

    Ignorance is bliss, talk about a cliche’, and ignorance is running rampant among those for whom she claims to want to change Washington. The sycophant liberal voters of the peoples Republic of Massachusetts represent a microcosm of how america as a whole is poised to vote. They kept the swimmer in his senate seat for five decades, a platform from which his destruct america campaign was unassailed by the right allowing him and his cohorts to commit irreparable (as in never to recover from) harm to the nation and these same (mostly) voters have kept Fauxahontas in her senate seat since 2013 and from all indications she has a sinecure for life not unlike that of the former liar-I meant lion of the senate; an electorate seemingly unfazed by lies, deception and fraud carried out by the many uber-liberal Kennedys(JFK exclude for the most part) and now Warren. In my estimation she is a greater threat than Pant Suit Lady in the sense that Warren, who unlike Clinton, may run against a deeply wounded Trump, deeply wounded as evidenced by the voters handing the House to the left. C’est domage.

      I agree, by the time 2020 rolls around Trump is going to be way too damaged and I think it is all but inevitable that whomever the Democrats nominate is going to be the next president.

    My bet is on Harris at this point. Dems like nasty hateful people and she seems to fill the bill. We may in the end find that Fauxhahontas resides in the East of the far Left.
