Posted on 06/16/2019 3:00:39 AM PDT by Kaslin
Candidates for office have a long history of promising the sun, the moon, and the stars to get votes, and the higher the office, the bigger the promises. Of course, the bigger the promises, the bigger the disappointment when they inevitably dont deliver on them. But what one Democrats running for president is dangling in front of voters is not only not going to happen, its downright cruel to pretend it would be within his power.
All of the nearly two dozen Democrats running have promised some form of impossible dream, but Former Vice President Joe Biden is in a class by himself. The easy frontrunner half a year before anyone casts the first vote is promising to cure cancer.
Ive worked so hard in my career that I promise you, if Im elected president, youre going to see the single most important thing that changes America: Were going to cure cancer, Biden told a crowd in Iowa.
In a profession known for shamelessness, this might be the most disgustingly shameless political stunt ever.
The sick thing is Biden should know better. In 2015, he lost his oldest son Beau to brain cancer. The horror of that loss is unimaginable, but grief is no excuse for cruelty. And make no mistake about it, promising something like curing cancer, if elected, is the ultimate in cruelty.
Millions of American families, mine included, have lost members or have people diagnosed with cancer. My father just finished treatment for lung cancer. Luckily it was caught very early, thanks to a chest x-ray during a bout of pneumonia. If there was anything in the world I could do to ensure that treatment worked, including voting for a Democrat, I would do it in a heartbeat.
But I know how this game works. Unfortunately, far too many people dont pay close enough attention to the news or history to know if a politician could read your mind and swear to the heavens theyll give you what you desire most, theyd promise it. And that that promise would be as empty as all the rest they make. But to pledge to cure something so horrible if elected is beyond the pale. And Joe Biden should know better.
The fight to defeat this killer is not a political issue, and any medical advances are not dependent upon which political party occupies the Oval Office. There is no executive order or government check to be cut that will provide the miracle we all seek. To suggest as much is disgusting.
As disgusting as it is, Biden isnt the first Democrat to promise to perform medical miracles if elected. In 2004, John Edwards, then their partys nominee for Vice President, promised the crippled will walk again if he and John Kerry were elected. If we do the work that we can do in this country, the work that we will do when John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve will get up out of that wheelchair and walk again, Edwards said.
Christopher Reeve had already passed away after spending the last years of his life paralyzed from the neck down after a horse riding accident. The miracle Edwards was holding back then was stem cell research, and the villain he was casting was President George W. Bush for limiting research on fetal stem cells.
Kerry and Edwards lost, taking their secret cure with them, but Barack Obama won 4 years later and implemented the policies theyd been promising an election cycle earlier. Needless to say, the promised restoration of the use of limbs has not come to pass.
Nor, by the way, have any of the other miracles Democrats promised from stem cells come to pass. Turns out, as Republicans said, it wasnt dependent upon who the President was, its dependent upon what the medical profession can accomplish. Someday, hopefully, these seemingly unattainable dreams will be reality cures and treatments just a pill or shot away. But that future is not dependent upon your vote.
For Biden to promise something like curing cancer if hes elected is a testament to just how low he will go to win, how desperately he wants to be president. Its also why he shouldnt be.
In the UK, at least they have the excuse of not having a written constitution.
I fully expet them to start to promise to execute political foes under the guise of “climate justice” or “economic treason”..
Nor, by the way, have any of the other miracles Democrats promised from stem cells come to pass.>>>>>>
Not to mention that one of the major sources of stem cells come from Planned Parenthood’s abortion by-product industry.
That makes Joe Biden, Kerry and Obungo vampires all. Leeches on humanity.And if you look at each of them closely, there is no soul behind their beady eyes.They look reptilian.
Anyone who supports the Dems automatically has joined the Dark side, something that we Patriots should never fail to point out.
How far we have come from “a chicken in ever pot” Words cannot describe the idiocy of these dopes and more so the idiots that follow and believe them. Makes you think they have the same voting power as you do, scarey
Maybe Biden knows theres already a cure (kept under wraps to allow the $$$$$$ to keep rolling in from existing treatments), and decided its time to unlock it, in exchange for the rats getting the Presidency.
What does Biden know and when did he know it? I demand answers!
...kind of kidding here...
That would tickle Me unitl I puked 🤢 🤮
Ditto here too.
Well, once you start telling lies, they just keep getting bigger and bigger. And why not? You are lying after all.
Not a voter, eh?;-)
They and their followers are stuck in a teenaged mind set. Something happens to a leftists brain and it stops developing normally. I am positive of this.
In every presidential election, I vote every for a candidate whose promises - or proposals or affirmations - I don’t believe.
They’re saying it, but subtly. Read John Semmens’s satires sometime.
You've never voted in your life?
Follow the money.................
Yet damn near 50% of Americans WILL!
And yet it’s illegal to actually pay real money to someone for their vote.
Maybe you sit elections out, but I don't. I don't vote for everything that is on the ballot. Only what interests me.
I could not have said it any better. The chicken in every pot was actually harmless considering the time and situation the country was in.
Wait a minute, do I read you correctly. You wrote that you vote for every candidate whose promises or affirmations you don’t believe? Or do you mean in the primaries?
