Today is an unusual election because, generally, voters prefer to vote for something rather than just against. But pollsters claim the Democrats are fired up to vote, and “against” is all that their Party is running on. They’ve made a few vague mentions of “health care,” but the only plan anyone has advanced is “Medicare For All,” and even a few of their most leftwing leaders who have a slight grasp of math know that’s a budget-exploding, choice-destroying disaster that will never happen.
No, Americans are being asked (or rather, bullied, shamed and ordered) to put the Democrats back in power for no clearly-stated reason other than that they hate-hate-hate Donald Trump soooo much and are so brain-meltingly furious that we do not give them the power that they thought was theirs by Divine right in 2016, they’ll tear the country apart.
They want us to ignore the roaring economy, the boom in jobs, rising wages, crushing of ISIS, renegotiated trade deals and North Korea dismantling its nukes, and instead vote against the man responsible for it all by putting them back into power. Vote against Trump because…
He’s a Nazi! In fact, he’s literally Hitler! (Even though he’s the strongest ally of Israel ever to sit in the White House and his daughter and grandchildren are Jewish.)
He refuses to repudiate racists and anti-Semites! (Even though he has done so repeatedly, saying there’s no place for such lowlifes in our society and calling for the death penalty for the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter.)
He's a Putin Puppet! (Even though he's been tougher on Russia than Obama; and after wasting millions of tax dollars investigating Trump, the only candidate who's been shown to have colluded with Russians to influence the 2016 election is Hillary Clinton.)
He's a misogynist! (Even though he was known for hiring women for important jobs in his businesses and has appointed more women to top-level jobs than any other President in history.)
He’s a wannabe dictator who targets the media! (Even though real dictators torture and behead journalists or send them to concentration camps, whereas Trump mocks them for their bias on Twitter.)
He’s a racist! (Even though he was honored by the NAACP for his support and never called a racist before he ran for President as a Republican; he’s taken actions such as prison reform and pardons that even Obama wouldn’t touch; and he points proudly to presiding over the lowest black and Hispanic unemployment rates on record.)
He’s an Islamophobe who tried to ban Muslims from coming to America! (Even though the mislabeled “Muslim ban” was aimed at nations that were known hotbeds of terrorism with no way of vetting emigrants, and the list of nations banned included non-Muslim nations and didn’t include dozens of majority Muslim nations.)
He hurls mean, ugly personal insults at political opponents! (You mean like when people on your side called him a "fascist" and "con man" and held up a bloody replica of his severed head; depicted his wife as a gold digger or a stripper; and suggested that his 11-year-old son was mentally disabled?)
Well, that pretty much covers the 2018 Democratic platform. Everything they do pro-actively support (socialism, higher taxes, heavy regulation, open borders, even more open bathrooms, banning guns, abolishing ICE, endless investigations and impeachment, ending due process rights for men accused of sex crimes, etc.) they’re trying desperately not to talk about because they know most Americans would never vote for any of that if they talked about what they really wanted to do.
And so, they’re running against Trump. Against, against, against! Resist, resist, resist!! And what legitimate gripe do they have, aside from the fact that he beat them when they thought he couldn’t?
Well, he does send out some pretty crude tweets on occasion. I admit I cringe at some of those. But is that enough to convince Americans to swap peace, strength, prosperity, secure borders and the return of the American Dream for a Congress run by a bunch of angry, vengeance-crazed leftist loons? Do they think we’re crazy, too?
If you are, then vote for the Democrats, since being “pro-insanity” seems to be the only positive plank in their platform. But if you’re not crazy, then stop reading this and get to the polls right now to vote Republican! Remember, the only poll that counts is the one where you cast a ballot. And if you don't vote, then you're saying to them, "Go ahead, kill all the progress we've made since 2016. I'm not gonna do anything to stop you."
