Pat Buchanan explains at LewRockwell.com that Joe Biden has no mandate to pursue the radical progressive agenda he currently supports. Buchanan writes (abridged):
The 2020 election was in reality a referendum on a single simple question: Do you want four more years of Trump? Yes or no?
Some 74 million people came out and voted to keep Trump in the White House, the largest number of voters ever won by a president.
However, an even larger number of voters were saying, “Enough!”
As moderate Democrats, desperate to halt the progress of Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primaries, had voted for Biden to prevent a socialist from winning their nomination, voters who wanted an end to the Trump era cast their votes for the other name on the ballot, which was also Biden.
In 2020, Biden lit no fires in the primaries and spent most of the general election sheltering in the basement of his Wilmington, Delaware, home.
A vote for Biden was a mandate to replace Trump, not to overturn Trump’s signature policies of no more wars, secure the border, cut taxes, rebuild the manufacturing base, reduce trade deficits, deregulate the economy and unleash the power of the U.S. free market system.
The Biden victory was a rejection of Trump, not a mandate for the agenda of Biden’s party, which, with its left-wing core dominant, is outside the mainstream of America.
When the American people voted for Biden, they were voting for competence and an end to the daily conflict and chaos, not a Second Great Society.
They were not voting for $6 trillion or $3.5 trillion for cradle-to-grave socialism. They were not voting to “Defund the Police.
