Instead we are faced with an entire political party whose most persuasive argument for voting for them is, to some extent or another, to make promises to give voters free stuff.
Free healthcare for you! Free college for you! Free abortions! Free eye glasses! Free hearing aids! Free dental coverage!
These people are experts at two things: Pandering and spending other people’s money on other people. Buying votes with other people’s money is as low as it gets.
