If you believe what the Democrats say then you believe that Donald Trump is not merely a bad president as well as a bad precedent. Democrats believe that Trump is the worst president ever. They think he is uniquely evil as well as wholly incompetent. He is the reason we are suffering thru the worst period in human history.
(OTOH, if you believe the Democrats you would also believe that America is irredeemably racist, gender is all in your head, and socialism works.)
According to the Democrats, Trump is so bad that they are justified in saying and doing just about anything to get rid of him. This includes lying to the people, stealing elections, illegally spying on Trump, allowing and/or encouraging riots, shredding our Constitution, perverting our legal system, and shutting down our economy.
If the Democrats succeed in stealing the election next month their top priority will be to change the system to prevent what has taken place over the past 4 years from ever happening again. It is unclear whether the Republican party will survive the post-Trump reorganization – some say it must be disbanded while others think it can be saved if it is turned over to the NeverTrumpers. (99% of those who think it can be saved ARE NeverTrumpers.)
The problem for the Democrats is that Trump isn’t the problem. He’s not even a symptom. Trump is just the voice of a movement he didn’t create. He is America’s last best chance to avoid a very uncivil war.
The Democrat party of the 21st Century is the party of totalitarian globalism. They are the antithesis of our Founding Fathers’ vision for America. They saw ordered liberty as the apotheosis of human societies, and government as a necessary evil.
Democrats believe that a centralized government controlled by themselves will be the neverending apex of civilization. At least that seems to be what they believe. It’s hard to tell because they lie so much and change directions without warning. In practice, they support whatever accrues more power to them in the here and now, without regard to the long-term effects.
Trump is the current spokesman for all those millions of Americans who don’t want government controlling their lives. Take Trump away and those millions of Americans are still there, and they are both deplorable and armed. But a group of people who prefer King Log to King Stork and extoll individualism and self-reliance are not predisposed to fall in line behind a single leader. They ain’t “joiners.”
Over the past few decades, the Left has been advancing and the Right has been retreating. That brings us to the Left’s real problem:
Their ideas don’t work.
Because their ideas don’t work they need the government to force people to comply. To enforce compliance the government needs more centralized control over more things. Eventually, the government controls everything. Anything the government cannot control must be eliminated. Everything not mandatory is prohibited. This is called totalitarianism.
The Right will not knuckle under without a fight. They have been trying to fight within the system only to find out that their elected leaders were in league with the enemy. It was inevitable that at some point the right would stop retreating and dig in. When that happened there would be war – a real one, and possibly a very bloody one. The survival of the United States as a single entity is doubtful. We were well along this path towards war before Trump announced he was running for president.
Eliminate Trump and we are still on that path. Take him out by cheating or with a bogus impeachment and that war becomes a near-certainty.
