There are many things in the new presumptive Democrat veep nominee’s background that are indicative of who she is. Senator Kamala Harris of California is a San Francisco lawyer and D.A., first generation American, and a politician down to her bones. But as a person who aspires to a high place in our government what is most important is where she stands on issues. Let’s look at that. We’ll use various reference sources.
Accurate take from @guypbenson:
"The New York Times called Kamala Harris a pragmatic moderate which is pretty funny. She's not that. She is definitely a pretty hard leftist" pic.twitter.com/xpbEvXXY9M

Abortion- Harris has a 100% rating by the abortion group Planned Parenthood and a 0% rating by the National Right to Life Committee. Very pro-abortion. Support includes total abortion on demand and late term and after birth abortions.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
Affirmative action- Harris asked the U.S. Supreme Court to “reaffirm its decision that public colleges and universities may consider race as one factor in admissions decisions.” Agrees with racism as long as it is directed against the race of her choosing.
Death Penalty- Feels criminals do not deserve to die no matter what crime they have committed.
Election security- Is open to abolishing electoral college. She has said, “No question that the popular vote has been diminished in terms of making the final decision about who’s the president of the United States and we need to deal with that.” By “deal with that” she means institute the electoral control of the nation by large leftist states. Tyranny of the majority is just what the Federalist Papers warned about. Harris has obviously never read it or, if she has, thinks she is smarter than James Madison. Uh huh.
Guns- For stringent gun control. Got an F rating from the NRA. Anti-Second Amendment with a passion. Believes citizens should not own guns but has a personal security detail.
Immigration- Supports sanctuary cities, loathes ICE and BCP. Believes in open borders, but only our southern borders. Strangely enough, her parents came to this country by playing by the rules. She must think they were suckers.
Climate and environment- About as crazy as you can get on the subject. I mean, out there. We’re talking Anne Heche talking to the Celestial Goddess crazy.
Socialized medicine- Believes in a government run health care system. No innovation, no advanced technology, no wonder drugs because no profit motive. If you liked Albanian healthcare in 1966, you’ll love her views.
Taxes- “Harris opposed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, and has called for a repeal of the bill’s tax cuts.” She buys into every socialist economic nostrum in evidence in the fever swamps of the leftist psyche. Need we say more?
National security- Like in so much else, Harris seems to base her national security views on a loathing of the president. She has viciously criticized Trump on foreign soil, in front of foreign leaders, and in front of America’s enemies. She has a petulant childlike understanding of the world and brings that to her Senate votes on national security…Bottom line? A very dumb leftist hyteric who loves to play the race card.
