Allow me a brief moment of personal pride. Four years ago, I was one of the few people who dared to believe that Donald Trump could become the President of the United States.
He wasn’t supposed to be the front-runner for the nomination. He was.
He wasn’t supposed to make it through the debates. He did.
He wasn’t supposed to be winner on Super Tuesday. He was.
He wasn’t supposed to be the nominee for the Republican Party. He is.
With odds like that, do we really want to go into the inauguration without a plan to deal with a Trump Presidency?
Four years later, we are in a very similar position. The Powers That Be are telling us, once again, that there is no way, no way that President Trump will be re-elected in November.
To answer Dr. Bastiat’s question, the Democrat strategy is simple: Commit voting fraud on a scale that has never been seen before in American politics. The problem they will have with this strategy is the same problem they had with the Kavanaugh hearings. They just don’t know when to say when. For many of us, the Democrat’s glee over abandoning the concept of “innocent until proven guilty” was a lightning rod. That was too far, and the Democrats went too far in their quest to block a Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court.
And so it will go with the vote harvesting, mail-in ballots, absentee ballots, etc., that will be the Democrat’s stock in trade over the next few weeks. They have removed the damper rods that were controlling their worst impulses. They see no reason to hold back: It’s time to end Trump and the GOP forever, and whatever it takes to accomplish that goal is worth trying.
However, because they live in a bubble, they don’t see how repugnant widespread voter fraud is to the American public. We want our votes to count, and no one likes a cheater. The mainstream Democratic Party, the party of JFK, Bill Clinton, and even Joe Biden will be the ones who will pay the price. Britain’s Labour Party was devastated last year when Boris Johnson and the Conservatives broke the “Red Wall” of the industrial north. America’s Democrats are staring at the same fate, should they lose this next election. They know this, and it scares them. They are willing to do anything to avoid going the way of the Whig Party.
Vote accordingly.Published in
