The Democrat Party has made a fateful decision. They've decided to safeguard all that is left of their power and the progressive movement they have worshiped at the cost of the existence of the nation they have sworn an oath to preserve.
The Democrats, after 160 years, have once again resolved that they will not accept the election of a president decided by a legal and Constitutional process. Their crusade to oust our president started in 2016 and will probably climax in 2020. This time they will not accept separation, only control...a true civil war!
Many of us saw that it would eventually come to this. And it is now here. The party of love and peace is now the party of war, hate, conformity and subservience. If you wear a MAGA hat, they no longer accord you a flower, but deliver spittle. If Trump removes troops from zones of endless warfare between followers of the 'religion of peace', they no longer applaud, but show contempt. Endless wars serve their purpose. MAGA hats do not. If you speak out against their narrative, they attempt to shut you down. To them, the Constitution is a constant irritant.
A rock musician of the sixties put it well. "In the sixties, we thought we could change the world. In the seventies, we found we couldn't even change ourselves, so we went for the money."
The money has now found a voracious partner...power.
When the sixties flower children finally took over the Democrat Party, the intention, as it turned out, was never to offer a solution to our social and domestic problems, but to destroy everything in their path to show and 'prove' to the world that our system does not work. They sought not to create a more perfect union, but to destroy it. In other words, establish change by creating chaos, blame others, and then demand a solution that they will dictate.
Almost every major city run by Democrats is in shambles either by crime or blight, or both. Our culture has deteriorated to a point where nearly every form of degeneracy is now considered normal and healthy. Our Judeo-Christian culture is looked upon with disfavor and secular, godless humanism with approval. Unchecked, uncontrolled migration has given us disease, crime, near bankrupt cities, voter fraud in the millions, terrorists waiting for orders, and a dilution of our culture only a sinister group could have thought of.
The news corporations no longer deliver news, but pure propaganda. They have abandoned their charge, taken sides and are determined to see the nation's transformation to its conclusion.
With the help of Marxist teachers and educators, our education system is now more reminiscent of re-education camps than centers of learning. It has become so widespread that most children leave home as innocent models of their parents' values and return as belligerent little know-it-alls that defy every decent ethic they were taught at home. When asked a question they drone out lines of prepared elocution.
Do not be deceived, they are not being taught Progressivism, or Democratic Socialism, and certainly not traditional liberalism. They are being taught full-on Marxist Communism with a Fascist twist.
The big question is...now what? The Democrats know they have a very slim chance of winning in 2020, so they and their partners in the media are pulling out all the stops. They will destroy this president any way they can. Trump is right, they don't want him, they want us, and he is in the way.
When President Trump wins re-election, I predict the Left will go totally unhinged. They will neither accept it nor allow it. It will make no difference if Trump should win the popular vote. If Trump wins only the Electoral College, there will be an outrage heard round the world and...There Will Be Blood, especially in the big Democrat cities. They will run rough shod, destroying everything they can find. The media will feed the violence and continue their narrative that the racist has again won the White House, their rampage justified.
Antifa will use the election as a call to arms...literally. They have spent several years probing on what they can get away with, and it has been considerable.
If Trump should lose, the Right will never believe that he lost fair and square. A strong suspicion of voter fraud and corruption will take hold, feeding millions with a sense of finally needing to preserve the Union against a demonic domestic enemy long asking for their comeuppance. Their patience at an end. Every action will be met with at least an equal reaction. It could easily snowball to what I fear to predict.
If, before the elections, the Barr and Durham investigations show what many suspect, an attempted coup, organized by the FBI, intelligence services, and others from the highest levels of government, the indictments will begin descending. The initial silence from these politician/deep-state-criminals will be deafening. The next sounds heard will either be the reading of their rights, the he-made-me-do-it finger pointing, or the quick glancing toward their blind, ignorant, well-indoctrinated followers the order...Charge! We pray everyone will come to their senses.
When there is nothing left to talk about, it becomes a case of doing rather than saying.
