In an episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” Buffy and Cordelia are both running to be Homecoming Queen.
Buffy starts handing out cupcakes to get students to vote for her. And in one scene, she is making her pitch to one boy as he devours the cupcake. Then the boy says to her, “Cordelia gave me six bucks. That buys a whole lotta cupcakes.”
It’s naïve to think candidates wouldn’t stoop to bribery for votes.
I remember during the 2000 election hearing on the news that folks were giving homeless people five bucks and a pack of cigarettes to go vote for Al Gore.
But what’s five bucks? That might be enough for Homecoming Queen. But not President.
Everyone in the 2020 Democrat clown car have taken bribery to new and shameless heights.
Problem is, unlike Cordelia, they’re not bribing voters with their own money.
Instead, they’re bribing them with ours.
“Free” college, “Free” healthcare, “Free” childcare, “Reparations” – almost every “policy” program they advance is based on the promise that some people will get stuff that is paid for by other people who can get stuffed.
The bribery schemes are courtesy of us.
Now, I would never vote for Elizabeth Warren.
So why in Lucifer’s reach should I be expected to fund Liz’s bribery for votes effort?
Yesterday, Liz unveiled her ridiculous “student debt forgiveness” bribery scheme which can be summed up thus:
“Vote for me and I’ll force other people pay off your student loans. And that’ll leave you money to buy a whole lotta cupcakes!”
At least Cordelia Chase and Buffy were honest about what they were doing.
Elizabeth Warren, on the other hand, is such a dishonest hack, she’s trying to pass off this vote-buying scheme as sound public policy.
But we weren’t born yesterday.
This is nothing more than buying votes.
With someone else’s money.
If you’re itching to buy votes, why not use your own money instead of reaching into taxpayers’ wallets, you crank? https://t.co/hBPG9m2xsJ— Dianny ??(@DiannyRants) April 22, 2019
It isn’t colleges and universities who will be forgiving that debt.
They will still expect to be paid.
And that’s where we come in.
American taxpayers will be on the hook for hundreds of billions of dollars in tuition.
And don’t believe for a millisecond that Liz will stop with extracting that balance due from the “ultra-rich.” There’s not enough wealthy people in the universe to cover the cost of debt forgiveness and “free” college.
And since under Liz’s “plan,” taxpayers will guarantee payment to colleges and universities, those universities will continue to crank up the cost of tuition. Why shouldn’t they? We taxpayers will be the never-ending gobstopper of endowments.
The fact is, Warren’s plan is entirely unworkable.
And I’ll let you in on a little secret: she knows it.
This isn’t about “Universal Free College” and “Debt Forgiveness.”
It’s vote-buying by promising tens of thousands of dollars to each person who was too stupid to know that taking out a loan with no hope of paying it back was a bad idea.
But then again, Democrats prey on the weak and the stupid.
And thanks to the state of the American Education System, Liz knows there are plenty of weak and stupid people out there who will fall for her okey-doke.
They’ll donate money to Liz’s campaign – even if it means forgoing their monthly student loan payment to do it. Hey, why not? Liz promises to forgive that debt anyway!
And provided no other Democrat candidate comes up with a better bribery scheme, they’ll support Liz Warren in the primaries.
Which, at the end of the day, is exactly what Liz’s vote-buying scheme was all about.
