"Off year elections are usually light. This year, they can't be. Trump's base needs to be out in force - like in the same numbers they were in 2016. It they can do that, the table will then be set for the all important 2020. And then Lord willing, MAGA and #winning! will continue for many years to come."
Wow! What a weekend for news! Lots and lots happening on the Loony Left. Like what? Protests all over the place. People are offended and horrified that the United States is finally upholding our immigration laws. In fact, one of the law enforcement agencies who is truly at the "tip of the spear" for immigration enforcement, is ICE. And to hear some of our most wacky elected officials on the Loon side of the street call for the abolition of ICE was, well, jaw dropping to say the least.
Speaking of Loons, this gal they picked to fill Hillary's old New York Senate seat is a piece of work. Even though she has not been around the block as long as Maxine Waters has, she is every bit as goofy. Kirsten Gilibrand and Elizabeth Warren (another fruitcake of note), are leading the charge to get rid of ICE. Why? Because of lies. Like ICE vilifies people. ICE takes kids away from families. ICE agents are nothing but jack booted thugs. According to the Loony Left, ICE is the Gestapo of the Trump Administration.
"Well, then this is Trump's fault for forming this evil organization!" Good point, except false. ICE started shortly after 9/11 during the Bush (43) Administration. It was set up to be an arm of Homeland Security. One of the painful lessons we learned from 9/11, was we needed to do a much better job of knowing who should and should not be in our country. Like I said before, ICE is at the tip of the spear in enforcing our immigration laws.
Back to why the Loons want to get rid of ICE. And why is that? For the same reason they like sanctuary cities. For the same reason many don't like our Constitution. Ready for this? They have anarchy running in their blood. Hate to say it, but it is true. Look at Antifa. In their world, we could get rid of our Constitution, the Holy Bible, ICE, the FBI, the military, and of course, the local police. It would be the perfect prescription for living in La La Land. The land of no borders, no laws, and no crime.
Our President however, lives in Realville (Thanks Rush). He thinks otherwise. He loves ICE. They are doing a great job. Trump did not create this mess on the border, but he is committed to fix it. And he will. This President is a strong believer in the rule of law. He does not believe in any type of anarchy. He wants the southern border fixed, and fixed now. As for Loons like Waters, Gilibrand and Warren, they are very good for the Republicans chances in November. Why? They expose how out of touch the socialist wing of that party has become. How dangerous they have become.
I know this is said more than it should be, but I mean it. This election in 2018 is going to change the landscape, and set the table for the big election coming in 2020. If the Blue Wave does materialize, the Trump Express will slow to a crawl, maybe even a dead stop. It will be almost impossible to get anything done in Congress. The country could devolve into chaos, as both sides will be blaming the other. First verbally, and then beyond just verbally. It could be the match which starts the fire.
However, a Red Tsunami could be just what the doctor ordered to keep the Trump Express roaring down the tracks. Although somewhat painful right now, I think this "trade war" will be short and fruitful. It would not totally fix our imbalance in trade, but it will help. Then GDP will be close to 5%, or maybe eclipse it. Phase Two of the tax cut will be enacted. Our new SCOTUS jurist will be on the bench. The country will be winning and winning and winning.
Off year (midterm) elections are usually light. This year, they can't be. Trump's base needs to be out in force - like in the same numbers they were in 2016. It they can do that, the table will then be set for the all important 2020. And then Lord willing, MAGA and #winning! will continue for many years to come.
