Democrats’ panic over Schultz

Democrats are wrong about Howard Schultz running for president as an independent. I’m a social liberal and fiscal conservative. I would never vote for a party whose political barnstormers promote a 70 percent income tax, innovation-killing state socialism, college-biased K-12 and game-play open borders. In the Coronado National Forest, my wife and I have encountered drug runners and been shot at while birding 20 miles above the Mexican border.

Now that Schultz has frightened the intrusive government Democrats and their media echo chambers, I think Schultz should pick Sen. Joe Manchin as his VP and bring back the Democratic Party of Idaho’s Cecil Andrus and Frank Church: pro-business, pro-education, pro-social liberalism.

Gov. Andrus and Sen. Church advocated for a strong work ethic, honest discourse, and self reliance over a budget-busting nanny state. Neither were groupthink flame throwers. Both were fiscal hawks. Sen. Church would never back Bush/Obama wars of choice. Church took on the deep state and stopped U.S. foreign leader assassinations, at least temporarily.

A Democratic ticket of Schultz/Manchin would give President Trump an election loss and bring back the Democratic Party to reality.
