The person who would refuse to raise their hand in answer to whether they want free healthcare for illegal immigrants would easily become the front-runner. It isn’t even about healthcare or immigrants (although the position itself is beyond deranged). It’s about not being a stupid drone incapable to resist the party’s small but loud faction of crazies.
If somebody stood up on this, it would make every headline. And it’s such an easy thing to do because as policy the idea is completely unfeasible even if somebody could pass it and defend it in court (which they can’t).
There’s everything to win and nothing to lose. And yet they didn’t dare. Stupid, useless drones.
