Earlier this year, a young college student had a face-to-face experience with Joe Biden that changed her world view and prompted her to write a book.
Madison Moore described her personal experience with Biden to Eye on Jacksonville.
It resulted from a class assignment while she was attending Mercer University in Macon, Ga. She now lives in Fernandina Beach.
Moore was enrolled in a class titled “Moral Foundations of Capitalism.” She was tasked with attending political events in New Hampshire.
“I went to a town hall where Biden was appearing, and asked him to explain his performance in Iowa and asked why voters should believe him in the national election.”
Biden, known for being combative with people who don’t ask fawning questions, asked caustically if she had ever been to an Iowa caucus.
“I was nervous,” Moore said. She nodded, although she had not.
“He said, “You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.”
The strange response caused national headlines. In his quest for the White House, the far-left Democrat also has called one voter “a damn liar” and told a black person that if he didn’t vote for Biden he wasn’t black.
The experience was on Feb. 9. Since then, Moore has graduated college with a degree in economics and the confrontation with Biden was part of a subsequent change in her outlook on how the world works.
It was only peripherally about the Biden experience. It had more to do with what she learned in the college class, she said, but the Biden confrontation deepened her interest in politics.
“The election became personal to me at the town hall,” she said.
Before the class, she was a registered Republican but was supporting Democrat Andrew Yang, who was running on a platform calling for universal basic income.
She began to follow the election almost obsessively. “It made me realize how often the media is lying about issues. It made me distrust the media completely.”
Before the class and Biden, she didn’t really know much good about socialism but knew everything liberals claim is bad about capitalism.
“I thought we needed the redistribution of wealth, capitalism is exploiting people, etc.”
She also was on the college debate team, which she said generally was “hyper leftist.”
She got an A in the class, which she finished during the virus mania, and is looking for a job.
After the class and after exploring the economic literature, including the iconic tome “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand and works of Nobel laureate Milton Friedman, she arrived at a conclusion: “Socialism sucks. To be extremely concise.”
With the help of a mentor, she decided to write a book about why the new generation is drawn to socialism, how socialism is presented, and why America should not abandon the free market.
She is a very thoughtful young woman. Asked if she thought Biden is a socialist, she said the Democrat Party definitely is headed that way but as for Biden himself, she said it required a very long answer in order to be complete.
The book is titled “Lying Dog-faced Pony Socialists” and is finished but not yet published. It is available on pre-order from Amazon.
Thinking for herself and not blindly accepting the Group think perpetuated by the media and many university elites has enabled Moore to become a free thinker and to pass on what she has learned to many others through her book.
We hope it becomes a best-seller.
