Democrats all the way back to Woodrow Wilson have understood that their policies of centralized power are unpopular among a free people like Americans. So they have made every effort to legislate through the courts. They appoint reliably leftist partisans to serve as judges, so they can maneuver closer to their Marxist dreams without being hassled by elected representatives or the US Constitution. FDR even attempted to pack the Supreme Court to get his policies through and was blocked by Republicans of the day.
Since then, there have always been a few leftist fringe players who have promoted packing the Supreme Court. But now, mainstream Democrats are openly announcing their plans to pack the Supreme Court early next year. Democrats like Jerry Nadler, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. He now openly acknowledges that Democrats are motivated not by the principles of the US Constitution, but simply by the pursuit of raw power.
Not so long ago, Democrats once represented themselves as being “anti-racist.” No longer. California Democrats recently repealed Proposition 209 from their state Constitution, which had banned discrimination based on race. That clause was creating legal issues for them, and making it difficult for them to promote the interests of certain groups of American citizens over others. You know that our fight against racism is getting weird when liberals must overturn laws against racial discrimination to legalize their racial policies. Democrats now openly acknowledge that they are motivated not by the principle of equality of all Americans, but simply by the pursuit of raw power.
Election fraud has been a mainstay of Democrat politics for decades, but they have generally attempted to be somewhat subtle about this particular election strategy. Broward County, Chicago, Philadelphia, and other places would generate some raised eyebrows, but the polite among us averted our gaze, even when Democrats would win more votes in some of these districts than there are people. Nothing to see here. But now, Democrats have been very open about their strategy to increase mail-in ballots, decrease the security of those ballots, refuse to concede the election no matter how big the landslide, then begin legal battles across the country with teams of attorneys that they’ve already hired for this exact purpose. They’ve even announced the appointment of the notoriously amoral Eric Holder to a leadership position for this upcoming battle. Democrats now openly acknowledge that they are motivated not by their interest in fair elections, but simply by the pursuit of raw power.
And it’s not just Democrat politicians. Democrat activists used to wear silly clothes and carry silly signs. Now they shoot cops and burn cities. It’s refreshing, in a way. They no longer pretend to be motivated by whatever the cause of the week is, but simply by the pursuit of raw power.
It’s reached the point where if you see an American flag in someone’s lawn, you know exactly who they’re voting for. There are those who seek to preserve America and improve it to the best of their abilities. And then there are those who openly plan to tear it apart. They sometimes talk of building something new in its place. But not usually. Violent revolutionaries are generally more proficient at destruction than building. And it’s easier to destroy a peaceful society than to build one, if one looks at history. Which violent revolutionaries do not do.
Something has happened to the Democrat Party. It seems sudden, but I don’t think it was. Rather than hiding behind a genial Bill Clinton, who tends to favor leftist policies while attempting to not completely screw up the country, they have now have declared open war on America. The American flag itself is now a controversial symbol.
It’s difficult to overstate the importance of this election.
If the Democrats win, pack the Supreme Court, and discard the Electoral College, that’s really it. I don’t see how we can recover from that, without major conflict. Likely armed conflict. That would likely be it.
This is a big election. I hope my fellow citizens recognize what they’re up against.
They should – the Democrats are no longer hiding it.Published in
