Trying desperately to sound like a moderate during tonight’s 50th HOD candidate debate, Jeanette Rishell (aka “June With A Cleaver“) did manage to show some of her true colors when departing from her prepared texts to answer questions. Several times this evening she quoted Louis Brandeis with pleas for the “wealthy” to contribute as much as they can in what felt like a partial recitation of the “From each acoording to their ability, to each according to their needs” from Karl Marx. And then she followed it up with this zinger: “progressive taxation is the foundation of our democracy”.
Excuse me? Our country was founded on progressive taxation? What happened to ‘We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.’? Apparently for “social justice” advocates, marxism makes a better foundation for our country than the principles that our country was actually founded upon.
Jackson Miller commanded tonights debate with a genuine and honest portrayal of his positions, while Jeanette Rishell tried and failed to portray herself as something she is not. Perhaps the most fascinating moment tonight was when I heard the following remark from a spectator:
“That’s not the woman who visited my house.”
More to come on this evenings debate…
