For Hillary Clinton and the two token candidates running against her for the Democrat presidential nomination, promises of government expansion occupy a significant segment of their campaign platforms. Though the increased regulations and restrictions promoted by these and other leftist leaders are often derisively described by conservatives as evidence of the expanding ‘nanny state,’ Democrat National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz might actually embrace the designation.
The California representative revealed in a recent interview with the New York Times’ Ana Marie Cox that she views the government’s role as that of the protector of stupid Americans.
“I don’t think we should just let things happen to people and let them be stupid and the victims of the consequences of their actions,” she asserted. “I think we can put enough obstacles in the path of poor decision-making.”
In addition to declaring her dedication to an America free from individual consequences, Schultz – who has been criticized for rigging the primary process to ensure Clinton’s eventual nomination – took aim at young women who do not support the current Democrat front-runner.
She blamed Clinton’s unpopularity among members of that group on “a complacency among the generation of young women whose entire lives have been lived” since abortion was legalized.
