It has been a long five years for conservatives. Over that time, we’ve been put in a difficult position by liberal, radical Democrats, and yet made tremendous strides. In recent months, some good people have tried to persuade me I shouldn’t brush Democrats with a broad brush. Yet, every day, Biden, Pelosi, and Schumer do precisely that to Republicans. I belong to several Facebook groups where Democratic voters repeat their vile rhetoric about Republican voters. The goal of the elite leaders in the Democratic Party is to use their left-wing coalition to apply scare tactics in the hope conservatives will give up in frustration and not bother to show up at the polls to cast a ballot in less than two months.
Yet, the Left is in the minority. According to the most recent polling, the majority of Americans identify as conservative at 36%, independent at 35%, and liberal at 25%. The Left is not the majority in this country. If the moderate right to conservative independents joins the rank of Republican voters, Democrats are in deep trouble. This is at the heart of the problem for Democrats. Since the left can’t solve it, they’ll try to fracture the electorate, hoping their left-wing supporters will turn out more than conservatives. To do it, Democrats will be brash and condescending bullies who will try to paint a picture there is no hope for conservatives now or in the future.
There’s just one problem. It won’t work.
Americans Sense Something is Wrong
On Saturday, I went to an airshow at Joint Reserve Base Andrews, home to Air Force One, outside Washington, DC. To our surprise, Biden flew in on Marine One and departed for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral around 10 am.
As Air Force One rolled down the runway, the airshow announcer proclaimed the massive plane known around the world. Still, regardless of the occupant on the plane, I felt a deep sense of pride. I’m sure others did as well. Yet, now one clapped before, during, or after it took off for London. Not soon after, people applauded stunt pilots and military jets who put on a fantastic show for us. It was something that seemed noteworthy to me.
On the bus back to Fed Ex Field to head to the truck, I engaged with a US Air Force activity duty airman in charge. He asked what I thought was the highlight of the show. I told him for me, it was seeing Air Force One. Before I finished the words, some people behind me were mocking Biden. To keep passions from flaring, I said it wasn’t about the man but the plane I admired and was enamored with.
It was clear that those around me felt something is wrong in America.
The Great Distraction of 2022
Looking at the polls and the problems with their internals, I’m convinced Democrats will not win in November or in 2024. Once again, pollsters are oversampling Democrats and undersampling Republicans and independents. I wrote about this last week. Right now, voters are not happy about several things. Let me explain why the momentum on the conservative side is strong and why Democrats’ electoral chances in the near future are a problem.
First, the Democrats need to convince you there is no hope GOP candidates can win this fall. It’s all they have, and it won’t work. People have not forgotten who destroyed the economy and supply chains through the COVID lockdowns and shutdowns. As electricity prices continue to skyrocket across the country, voters will learn Biden shut down fossil fuel energy sources on day one of his administration and drove prices through the roof. This winter, keeping your home warm may be brutal on the checkbook.
While the Left try to convince you that MAGA Republicans are a threat to democracy, it was them that previously contested the legitimacy of elections in 2000, 2004, and 2016. They were the original election deniers. The hypocrisy is glaring.
In 2021 Democrats tried to pass the semi-socialist Build Back Better agenda. It was loaded with Green New Deal programs. It sought to force banks to tell the government whenever you made a deposit in your bank account over $200. That’s just the beginning. I could write a book on the atrocious legislation that sought to transform America’s economy, government, and society.
Democrats also weaponized Critical Race Theory in public K-12 schools, universities, and corporations. If you’re White, you’re privileged and should take a backseat. Biden gave preference to black farmers in aid, and the Supreme Court had to overrule him using the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Discrimination in any form is discrimination and illegal. Besides, did anyone tell my grandparents and ancestors born into poverty they were privileged?
What has Biden done to stem the flow of illegal immigration? He’s done nothing but justify it under the guise that he’s humane. Really? What about the nearly thousand who died crossing the Rio Grand river or the untold number who passed away in the back of hot eighteen-wheelers? What about human and sex trafficking? How is that humane?
It was Democrats who passed the untruthful “Inflation Reduction Act” and tried to pull one over on you. In the next few years, 87,000 IRS agents will contact middle-class and working families to squeeze more money out of them while the government continues to collect record taxes without additional staffing. Individual income tax collections are projected to hit an all-time high relative to the US economy since Congress created the modern income tax in 1913.
Don’t be deceived. The IRS won’t increase its audits on the wealthy who can afford tax accountants and lawyers. The process is long and cumbersome. IRS agents will go for the low-hanging fruit against Americans who don’t have the means to protect themselves. The government will want to recoup its investment.
Who are The Real Bullies?
While Democrats continue their MAGA assault, they are showing who the real bullies are in America. Consider this… Did Republicans ever:
- Weaponize the IRS against liberal groups, admit it happened, and settle a lawsuit?
- Target an opponent presidential campaign under false pretenses to hide a scandal?
- Use the FBI to lie to a FISA court to obtain secret search warrants against its political opposition campaign?
- Spend hundreds of millions of dollars investigating a president, knowing the allegations were false for political purposes?
- Impeach a president for doing what others before him did in conversations with foreign heads of state?
- Tell activists to get in the faces of their opposition or disrupt people’s personal lives?
- Protest at the homes of liberal Supreme Court Justices?
- Empower riots caused billions of dollars in American cities?
- Threaten to overrun the Secret Service at the White House or set a cathedral on fire?
- Shoot at Democratic members of Congress before a fundraising baseball game?
- Label their opposition falsely as voter suppressionists?
- Describe the voters of the opposing political party as insurrectionists, racists, xenophobes, deplorables, semi-fascists, or other names to suppress their political views or marginalize their votes?
The list goes on and on… the reality is Democrats did these things, and they are all documented. Republicans did not. Some will scream, but January 6. It was wrong, and people should be held to account. Still, that’s one act of irresponsible behavior due to pent-up frustration over years of bullying by Democrats against conservatives. It doesn’t make it right, it doesn’t justify it, but the short list above demonstrates justice appears to be a one-way street.
Is There Really Equal Justice Under the Law?
The real issue in America is that there is no equal justice under the law right now. Democrats are in charge, and they created this environment. A society cannot last long when half the country believes justice isn’t equal, and for a good reason. Who was ever charged with crimes for riots and destruction of federal courthouses in 2020? No one. Federal prosecutors dropped charges. Yet, people are still in jail since January 6 and have not been tried in court.
Here’s the main point… the extreme rhetoric we are hearing from the Left is because they know the backlash is coming. While the election heats up, just know you are not crazy. You are the majority in this county. The Left doesn’t want you to believe it.
Don’t give up hope. We must vote in November to remove Pelosi and Schumer and their enablers from Congress!
