In reading over the comments on my latest post, I was overwhelmed by the endless ways that the Left has been able to target, mislead, hamstring, and nearly destroy the Conservatives. There seems to be no end to the many ways they commit subterfuge and often even practice their despicable acts in plain sight. We can call them out when we happen to catch them in the act, but there are rarely, if ever, consequences.
When we review Trump’s efforts—a man who we hoped would be able to drain the swamp—the Left was prepared to take steps to stop him at every action. With the media’s collusion with the Left, and people like Adam Schiff on one side and Liz Cheney on the other, are we more likely to drown in the swamp than drain it?
I read a comment that Trump should be elected in 2024 to finish the work he began against the swamp in his first term. He initiated many productive and innovative policies, and I’m not very interested in debating that point. But when it comes to draining the swamp, how successful was he? How would we even define “draining the swamp”? Were part of the difficulties he encountered due to his lack of understanding about how pervasive and deep the swamp actually was? Do you think he’s learned from the first time around, and that he would tackle the swamp in a different way?
