John Kotson: Democrats blow it again in presidential debates

Longmont Daily Times-Call - 08-12


Recently, 20 Democratic presidential candidates spent two nights arguing over plans for universal health care, immigration reform, climate change and workers’ rights. Only one candidate even mentioned the Russian missile threat, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii. No one discussed the real issue of the 2,020 election, how to defeat Donald Trump. The 2020 election will be a referendum on American democracy. If Trump wins re-election, we could suffer the permanent rise of dictatorial powers in this country.
