The Democratic Party certainly is fond of utilizing divide-and-conquer tactics for political gain. Their voter base is split up into small, manageable segments on which the party itself can tout issues near and dear to their hearts. This is why the left is constantly attempting to keep minorities and those suffering from social oppression in their camp.
If the left would simply see that “all are created equal”, this vote-gathering advantage would dissipate. If there was no inequality, the left would lose this avenue of support. That could very well be why they refuse to come together and work in a bipartisan manner, often treating their Republican colleagues as though they carry the bubonic plague.
That’s why, when former Vice President Joe Biden insinuated that he would be amenable to a Republican running mate in 2020, the left gasped and shrieked.
Even other top-tier Democratic candidates are lashing out at the idea.
While Sanders suggested it is too early in the race to talk about a potential running mate, he signaled that he would not choose someone across the political aisle.
“I think it is fair to say that I will not have a Republican as a vice president on my ticket, as a vice presidential candidate,” Vermont’s socialist senator told Fox News.
“I will have somebody who shares my views,” he continued. “I am not aware of too many Republicans who do.”
The upper echelon of the 2020 Democratic field itself is politically segregated as well, with Sanders and Senator Elizabeth Warren representing the party’s liberal lean, while Biden and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg stand far closer to the center.
