After the party of a sitting president has a loss in the midterms, it is usual for the opposing party to think that they will take back the White House. This is especially evident given the fact that Establishment Republicans are trying as hard as possible to find a candidate to primary Trump. Everyone from former Massachusetts Governor William Weld to former Ohio Governor John Kasich to media darling Evan McMullen is potential primary challengers to President Trump.
There is a good chance that one of these RINO’s is suicidal enough to take on Trump. And the conventional wisdom is that when a sitting President is primaried, that shows a split in the party which often leads to the incumbent being beaten in November. However even if a whiny pathetic crybaby like John Kasich takes on Trump, Trump is the overwhelming favorite to win in November.
1st off – most elections are about Peace and Prosperity. President Trump, having been able to both end the 60 year old Korean War by standing up to the bully Kim Jong Un, is the sole reason the 2 sides were finally able to end the 60 year old cease fire and have an actual peace treaty. Trump is more than deserving of winning the Nobel Peace Prize for ending a 60 year old war. And our economy is humming along at a record rate of low unemployment and rising wages for the middle class. Trump has pretty much kept every campaign promise he made – and was instrumental in negotiating and then signing the greatest piece of legislation since the 13th Amendment ended slavery – the Trump tax cut.
But something else is happening which is important to a re-election. The other side is going off the rails, by having this sociopathic need to ally themselves with the 20 percenters (those who are supporting policies which are supported by approximately 20% or less of the voting population).
Take AOC and her “Green New Deal”. This ridiculous piece of legislation, which would call for having every building in the USA torn down and refitted over a 10 year period to be carbon neutral (not to mention it also calls for money for those unable or unwilling to work), is supported by approximately 17% of the population. However pretty much each current Presidential candidate has either supported the Green New Deal or some version of this joke. The Green New Deal will cost approximately $93 trillion to implement. Aka it is financially impossible to occur. According to Rasmussen polling – only 17% of the American voting population supports the Green New Deal.
Then take the “Medicare for All” proposal by Bernie Sanders. People like it, until they find out the true price tag. $35 trillion over a 10 year period. Once they find out the true cost, only 18% of the voting population supports Medicare for All.
You’d think that the Democrats would stop while they’re behind – but NOOOOOO they won’t or can’t. Only 20% of the US voting population supports reparations paid to descendants of slaves. After birth abortions aren’t popular either, with only 12% of Americans supporting them. Yet pretty much each Democratic elected official in Washington (not to mention Governor Blackface and AG Blackface in Virginia) have come out in support of afterbirth abortions. Only 20% of Americans think that owning a gun is immoral – yet Progressives want to ban all guns.
In all likelihood the Democrats will nominate a progressive in 2020. Heck even Joe Biden calls himself the most progressive of the entire field.
Not to mention the anti American Muslim extremists like Ilhan Omer who thinks that “some people did something” on September 11, 2001. For those of us who were there and lost people we knew, 9-11 was more than “some people did something”. It was the greatest loss of civilian life in an attack on our Republic. For Nancy Pelosi to continue defending that lunatic of a woman, is beyond comprehension. Rashida Tlaib and her anti-Israel sentiments and rather crude language don’t make the party of compassion look any more mainstream either.
There are approximately 100 other things that I could list here, but time does not allow for them. Everything from Cory Booker’s veganism to out of control government spending to Kamala Harris being the ho of Willie Brown.
Only one Democrat so far has made an attempt to take on the party, and that is Howard Schultz of Starbucks. He left the party saying it had become too radical even for his own good (remember that Mr. Schultz wanted to have each cup of coffee sold to also include “Race Together” aka let’s keep racial tensions alive by consistently talking about them). If the Democrats have lost a lefty like Schultz, then what does that say about where they will end up in 2020.
Each party who controls the center controls their own re-election. And while I am no centrist, I do understand that you need as many people on your team as possible to win. The Democratic party is no longer a centrist or center-left party. They are a party led by counter culture anti American communists. AOC, Governor Blackface, and the mindless sheep who they lead will have a piece of their anatomy handed to them in November 2020. And if we really work hard – maybe we can take back Virginia also.
