Last week with the gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia, Democrats began crowing that a #BlueWave was sweeping America, ushering in exciting and vibrant Democrats and already relegating Donald Trump to the dust bin of history. (Forget the fact New Jersey and Virginia are now either solid Blue or light Blue states.)
There is no question Democrats are energized. They have psychotics of the far left of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. They have the media. They have Hollywood. They have academia. All of their strongholds are extremely energized for the 2018 midterms, regardless if they have any viable candidates who are not far-left nut jobs.
But herein lies the Republican conundrum. Mitch McConnell and his boys in the Senate–and to a lesser extent Paul Ryan and his boys in the House–have so far been terribly ineffectual in passing the Trump agenda the American people voted for last November. They have been so ineffective, they risk handing over power to a bunch of godless freaks in the Democrat party.
Mitch McConnell and John McCain et al have clearly orchestrated Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore‘s demise in order to stick it to conservatives. The accusations against him are troubling, and I suspect he will drop out within 24 hours. But wouldn’t it be nice if the same media and Establishment throwing Moore overboard had the same level of outrage when similar or WORSE charges are lodged against Democrats?
So eager are Establishment Republicans to thwart the will of the people, they would take the chance of losing the Alabama Senate seat rather than handing it over to a true conservative hellbent on passing President Trump’s agenda.
If the current crop of Republican losers do not pass meaningful tax reform, repeal Obamacare, and start Building That Wall, they risk everything. The wrath of the American voter is very strong.
These are not fringe issues. A sound immigration policy, building a wall, repealing and replacing Obamacare with free-market principles, and meaningful tax reform are issues that 60 to 80% of Americans support!
The Republicans in Congress, by assuming their base is a bunch of right-wing lunatics, is treading in dangerous water. Their base are the people that put Trump in office. President Trump is the one who expanded the Republican base…not them! President Trump is the man who brought in blue state Reagan Democrats and people sick to death of our broken immigration system…not them!
Republican voters have a real decision to make in the 2018 midterms. Do we sit out the election to send some of these RINOs packing,? If we do so, the Democrats will take that as a sign that Trump is dead in the water and find some ridiculous reason to impeach him. If we don’t sit out the midterms, Establishment Republicans will think we support their agenda, which we emphatically do not.
I am a reliable, “hard R” voter, as they say. I won’t be sitting out anything. But I am not a typical voter. The Republican party better get its act together, because a Blue Wave is coming.
If they don’t want to lose it all, they better start passing the Trump agenda. Like, yesterday.
