The 2020 election is shaping up to be a brutal and bombastic competition between warring factions of the democratic party, and we are just now in the figurative infancy of the fight.
The enormous size of the field has plenty to do with this, with nearly two-dozen candidates lambasting one another on the regular at one point. The centrist, old-school democrats have been browbeating their ultra-progressive offspring, believing that only a true “deep state” democrat would stand a chance against Donald Trump in the general election. Meanwhile, the youthful and radical leftists of the bunch have been lamenting their party’s unwillingness to accept the extreme viewpoints that their millennial voting blocks are clamoring for on Twitter.
In order to rein in the massive crowd of contestants, the DNC is implementing harsh new rules regarding debate qualifying – something that low-polling candidates have been insulted by.
Count Tulsi Gabbard among the angry. The Hawaiian House Rep took to Tucker Carlson’s television program to make her opinion known.
“People deserve having that transparency, because, ultimately, it’s the people who will decide who our Democratic nominee will be and ultimately who our next president, commander-in-chief will be. And when you see that lack of transparency, it creates, you know, a lack of faith and trust in the process,” she said. “And I think this also points to a bigger issue and challenge that goes beyond the DNC and party politics is the government itself.”
“You know, there are people who are increasingly losing that faith and trust in the government because they see a lack of transparency there,” Gabbard added. “They see that we don’t have a government that is of, by, and for the people. And, really, what they see is a small group of really powerful political elites, the establishment, making decisions that serve their interests, and maintaining that power, while the rest of us are left outside. The American people are left behind. So, these — these are the deeper-seated issues. I think it’s important that we recognize and that for me as president, that I would seek to change. That we’d actually fulfill that vision that our Founders had for our country of having a government that is truly of, by and for the people, and making it so that people can trust that our leaders are listening to them and making decisions not based on partisanship, but based on serving their interests.”
Gabbard is currently polling at 3.3% nationally according to Real Clear Politics, despite finding herself the alternative media’s darling after appearances on non-mainstream programs such as The Joe Rogan Experience.
