So what’s the alternative? Wait for it. Drum roll please! It’s “For the People.”
Yep, the party that has spent a decade and more coddling Washington elites and ignoring the heartland as a bastion of “irredeemable deplorables,” the party that has destroyed black inner cities across the country by a making their inhabitants wards of the state: here they are with “for the people.” “House Democrats,” Politico says, “plan to begin working ‘For the People’ into their statements and press conferences.”
Please stop giggling.
Who knew that “for” could be a transitive verb? Ronald Reagan famously quipped that the nine scariest words in the English language were “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” When the Dems (and, let’s be fair, when many Republicans) talk about doing things “for the people”, they really mean doing things to them.
