And over the weekend, the socialists – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders – were campaigning together, and repeating their off-the-charts enthusiasm for economic nonsense: free college, Medicare for all, guaranteed income, free money, for all. Etc., etc., etc.

Do the Democrats have a united position on immigration? On growing the economy? On trade? On the Paris climate accord? On Iran? No.

They only unify behind contempt and hatred for the president. That’s not much of an election strategy. We want to know what you're for, not just what you are against.

And frankly, if the Democrat Party becomes the Socialist Party – and it’s close to being just that – it’s doomed to the fringe for a generation.
