It’s fascinating to me to watch people do something that fails when everyone else does it, but they somehow think that it will be different this time (even though they’re doing it the same way). They seem to think that they have some mystical charm that will make work this time.
Hint: It almost certainly won’t.
We’ve seen that in all areas of life. The guy who thinks that he has the magical metabolism who can eat Big Mac’s and drink soda at every meal of the day and live to be 95. The thing is, it didn’t work for that guy’s father, and it probably won’t work for him. Not to be mean, but I hope that his life insurance policy is paid up to take care of his family when he’s gone.
In the same way, I see politicians push for policies that keep preventing people from getting elected. In today’s example, think back to how Beto O’Rourke said that he was going to take our AR-15s and AK-47s. How did that go for him? He didn’t win the nomination, so, obviously, he didn’t get elected President.
Bizarrely, though, Joe Biden (or his handlers running the show behind the scenes) have him pushing for those same Beto O’Rourke failed policy positions. Emil Akan writes,
Speaking at a gun safety summit in West Hartford, Connecticut, Biden promised to take more actions, including banning assault weapons, ending immunity for gun makers, and instituting background checks.
“We will beat the gun industry. We will beat the big money that’s just behind them and the politicians who refuse to stand up and act,” Biden said during the National Safer Communities Summit at the University of Hartford.
Now, you have to ask why Biden has the strange idea that pushing to ban “assault rifles,” which is simply code for AR-15s, will, somehow, bring him the popular vote in the 2024 election.
Yet, for some bizarre reason, they keep pushing it. It’s truly strange.
