What else is to be expected from a party with no vision, no national message, and no will? It is an indictment of the stale principles and ethos of this party that what should have been an easy sweep is a trickle. The leadership should be scuttled. We need more than a party that promises to just clean up whatever mess Democrats make.
It’s clear from how the major cities are voting that crime can triple and they do not give a damn. The GOP needs to stop responding to Democrat crime and Democrat policies. It needs a vision of how the country will look and what they will do with our criminal justice system. What should it look like? What should be dismantled? What new institutions should be built and why? What is the goal of being a nation and what shared identity and mission do we have?
If it is more gibberish about free markets and small government that unites us, then expect no better than this. Expect never to sweep away Democrat control of the institutions. Expect trickle elections. Expect not much change except the temporary slowing of our trajectory. This is an opportunity to demand new leadership finally. A wave would have allowed their rotten grip to maintain. Having a slight edge with enough new seatholders who don’t care for current leadership is what we need to start dismantling the top of the party and remake it into a force worth something.Published in
