The Gillum Effect In Florida

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 26, 2018

IDENTITY POLITICS IS BACK. WELL, ACTUALLY IT NEVER WENT AWAY. IN FLORIDA, A LEFT-WING SOCIALIST NAMED ANDREW GILLUMN, WHO CURRENTLY IS MAYOR OF TALAHASSEE, IS RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR AGAINST REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN RON DESANTIS.

NEWS REPORTS KEEP REFERRING TO GILLUM’S POTENTIAL TO BECOME FLORIDA’S FIRST BLACK GOVERNOR. WHO CARES? IT ISN’T, OR SHOULDN’T BE, ABOUT THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN; IT’S ABOUT THE CONTENT OF HIS IDEAS. GILLUM WANTS TO RAISE TAXES ON THIS INCOME TAX-FREE STATE. HE WANTS MEDICARE FOR ALL, OR SOCIALIZED MEDICINE PAID FOR BY THE GOVERNMENT. WHERE WILL THE MONEY COME FROM AND WHY DOES HE THINK GOVERNMENT CAN DO A BETTER JOB WITH HEALTH CARE THAN THE PRIVATE SECTOR? HE SHOULD CHECKOUT BRITAIN’S NHS.

THE MEDIA TREAT GILLUM LIKE THE WAY THEY TREATED BARACK OBAMA WHEN HE RAN FOR PRESIDENT. TO THEM HE IS A MESSIANIC FIGURE ABOUT TO SAVE FLORIDIANS. WHATEVER HAPPENED TO IDEAS? THE ANSWER IS DEMOCRATS HAVE RUN OUT OF IDEAS – AT LEAST IDEAS THAT WORK – AND SO THEY FOCUS ON OTHER THINGS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH INDIVIDUAL LIVES. WAKE-UP FLORIDA. I’M CAL THOMAS.
