Tick tock. Tick tock. Can you hear it? Time is running out. The midterm elections are almost upon us. There could be scary days in our forecast. Why? What the Democrats are hoping will happen, will be a Blue Wave. But the the Republicans are referring to the Blue Wave as a Blue Cesspool instead. That is, if the Democrats take the house. Why? Picture Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler, and Aunt Maxine running the joint. If that Blue Cesspool is not enough to scare the crap out of anyone, I don't know what is.
Minnesota can do its part to keep this from happening. How? First off, hold CD 6 (easy), CD 2 (not as easy), and CD 3 (hard). Then, pick up CD 8 (best shot), CD 1 (second best shot), CD 7 (longer shot), CD 5 (Moon shot), and CD 4 (no shot). In any event, the worst we should do in November is keep three Red Team member of Congress. The Best we could do is have six. Six would be (as Trump would say, YUGE!!!)
The Democrats (along with their BFF media hacks), are getting almost giddy. Every day, more and more so. Why? They feel this is their BEST chance to right this huge wrong which was visited upon the American people in 2016. The Democrats want to first take the House, and then have Nadler start Articles of Impeachment hearings. Then using their new majority in the House vote on impeachment. Once the President is impeached by the House, shove it over to the Senate for trail.
What the Blue Team forgot to factor in were two very important things. First, should that ever happen, Vice President Pence is warmed up in the bullpen and ready to go. What will he do? Probably follow the Trump agenda down to the last item. Second (and this is big one) - President Trump's supporters have known since Day One that this was the Democrat's prime objective. The overall approval numbers (very recent) for Trump with his base is still 90%. If the Democrats take the House, and impeachment proceedings start - hold on to something. All hell will break loose. I mean really, break loose.
To keep this from happening, to keep the team of Trump/Pence in power for the rest of this term (and maybe next), we need to stay strong and resolute. The Blue Wave (or Blue Cesspool) CANNOT be allowed to happen! Things would get very bad, very fast I'm afraid. However to keep the House, would allow this juggernaut called the "Trump Recovery" to continue. High GDP, high employment, lower taxes, better lifestyles.
What I am asking every Red Team voter in Minnesota to do, is simply this. Not only vote, but also make sure other Red Team folks vote. If they need a ride, give them a ride. If they are not sure which precinct to vote in, help them find out using the SOS website.
