It’s a week and a day until midterm elections, millions of early votes have already been cast, and the Democrats and the media (pardon my redundancy) are looking at polls and early turnout and realizing to their horror that they bet on the wrong horse. Still, do NOT let polls lull you into not voting. This is a “crawl over broken glass in shorts if you have to” election.
“Progressive” Democrats actually thought that in a time of record high inflation and gas prices, open borders and skyrocketing crime, what voters would be most concerned about was a three-hour riot from nearly two years ago, the right to abort their children right up until birth, and the claim that democracy will die if Americans are allowed to vote for anyone other than them.
Because that’s the stuff they actually believe is important, they thought everyone else believed it, too, except a handful of “MAGA extremists.” This is what living in a bubble and never talking to anyone outside it does to your brain.
Why, it’s almost as if they care more about illegal immigrants than they do about Americans. And Americans, not being morons, have noticed.
So now, with the election barreling toward them like a freight train with no baby formula on it, panicky Democrats are trying a last minute pivot to crime and the economy. They’re insisting that only they can keep us safe from the violent criminals and economic disasters that they deliberately unleashed on us. I don’t think it will work on most voters, again because of that “not being morons” thing.
But you know they’re desperate because some of them are actually resorting to their old stand-by tactic of trying to scare seniors by claiming that Republicans want to slash or abolish Social Security. Will that still work in an era when many seniors have 401K’s, or did until Biden came along?
Social Security is set to get one of the biggest cost of living increases in history next year, ironically thanks to all the Bidenflation. The biggest danger to Social Security is liberals spending all of the money the government needs to fund it.
For the record: I have been hearing Democrats warn that Republicans were going to take away grandma’s Social Security ever since I was a kid. I’m now eligible for Social Security myself, and they’re still saying it! Yet in all those years, payments have only increased. How many times do they think they can cry wolf before voters finally tune them out like a malfunctioning car alarm that just won’t shut off?
