We are down to the last weekend before Election Day on Tuesday, and early voting is still going on in some states. The media and Democratic operatives (but I repeat myself) are already predicting the Dems will take over the House, in hopes of depressing Republican turnout.
DO NOT LET IT WORK! Remember the shock and tears on their faces on Election Night 2016, when they learned that all their “92% chance of Hillary winning” predictions had been completely wrong – something that I predicted weeks in advance, by the way? Wasn’t that wonderful to watch? Don’t you love rewatching it again and again on YouTube? Well, it’s time for some fresh video footage of liberal talking heads crying and rending their garments. Better them than you. So tune out all the “blue wave” blather and go vote as if your future, your children’s future and America’s future all depended on it, because they do.
Early voting numbers so far show no signs of a “blue wave.” In fact, Republicans are far ahead of expectations in most places. But don’t let that make you complacent. Every vote for a Republican for the House or Senate is a vote to keep Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi out of the leadership, and to keep Maxine Waters from being in charge of overseeing our financial system, so every vote counts!
And don’t let the relentless media assaults on common sense cow you into thinking that “we’re all socialists now,” as an Obama-era Newsweek magazine cover so revealingly put it, so resistance is futile. In fact, Gallup reports that as of this year, 26% of Americans identify as “liberal,” compared to 35% “conservative” and 35% “moderate.” If leftists sound like a majority, it’s only because they yell so loud, each of them makes more noise than three sane people. (Also worth noting: if there were so many socialists to support it, why was Newsweek later sold to a new owner for the sad sum of $1?)
Remember that while “progressives” might be energized by Trump hatred, most of that is concentrated in already blue states. Like Hillary’s useless “popular vote win,” they can turn out 3 million more voters in states they were going to win anyway and still not win any contested seats if Republicans just turn out and vote.
Woody Allen once famously quipped that “Eighty percent of life is just showing up.” If only 26% of Americans are liberal – and even some old style liberal Democrats are disgusted with the recent violent, radical, socialist trend of their party (see the link below) – then Republicans can win this election by 80%. Think of all the liberal tears from CNN and MSNBC that you’d be able to enjoy on YouTube then!
All it takes is for Republicans to show up – at the polls! Now get to it!
Here’s a link to a blogger who is compiling early voting turnout numbers around the country, and if Democrats were expecting to surf to victory on a blue wave, they might end up stranded on their dinghies. Warning: Do NOT let these numbers make you think your vote isn’t needed! EVERY Republican vote is urgently needed. Let’s keep these leads building right up to and on Election Day.
Don Surber makes some similar points:
Incidentally, I was thinking of joking that to keep Democrats from assaulting Republicans, they would be separated this year, with Republicans voting on November 6th, and Democrats should show up on November 7th. But then I remembered how Democrats are still demanding federal investigations because Trump joked that if the FBI couldn’t find Hillary’s emails, the Russians could probably send them over. There’s no joke so obvious that Democrats won’t treat it seriously and make a federal case out of it, and I don’t want to be accused of trying to suppress the voting rights of Humor-Deprived Americans.
