Well, election day has come and gone, and there was no “blue wave”. Sadly, there was a “blue drip”, and thanks to wealthy suburban white women, millennials, and those that vote based on their skin color, we can all look forward to 2 years of ramped up investigations, obstruction, resistance, and stagnation.
There are a couple of lessons to be learned from the midterm election results. One – if you’re a republican/Bushite/neocon and you didn’t embrace and defend Trump, you lose. Two – democrat voters will vote based completely on race and Trump-hatred, without any clue about what their chosen candidate has in store for them.
It’s early, but so far only the community-organizer/Wisconsin native Stacey Abrams – the democrat gubernatorial candidate for Georgia – has refused to concede an obvious loss. My guess is she’ll cry “racism!” and demand to keep counting until the state DNC finds several forgotten boxes of uncounted votes that all go democrat. Abrams is truly a cancer in Georgia politics, and everyone reading this should be very afraid that she has even come close. She, along with Andrew Gillum in Florida, are the embodiment of running on racism and hate, Reverend Jeremiah Wright-style.
There is much talk about “working across the aisle” and “wanting unity” from voters when asked about what motivated their vote. To be quite honest, I find this attitude naïve, childish, and frankly stupid. There will be none of that crap. We don’t live in an America that does that anymore, and the reason isn’t “incivility on both sides”, it’s that one side wants to destroy, or let’s say “fundamentally transform” the country into a communo-socialist sh!thole, and the other wants to keep their culture and rule of law while holding a job, saving some money, and raising their kids. Can you guess which one of these groups is more motivated to march, protest, organize, and resist?
It’s not all bad news. It’s pretty historic that the democrat party didn’t sweep the House and the Senate. Trump’s power in the Senate has likely increased, and the democrat margin of victory in the House is pretty narrow. So, it looks good for court nominees and avoiding impeachment, but it looks really bad for any new tax cuts, the wall, or any meaningful legislation. Expect the democrats to act as if their narrow margin is some kind of biblical mandate to assume as much power as they can get their dirty little hands on.
The truth is we’re going to have to see what happens over the next few weeks. There is a few months before power technically shifts, and during this time we’ll all see and hear what the left has in store for us. I am admittedly a pessimist, but I’ll give you my best-case scenario for the next two years: Hopefully Pelosi and the left will expose themselves as the fools and buffoons they truly are, and devolve even further into the black hole of identity and tribal politics, as well as into the madness of the college campus. Worst case : The street theatre and anarchist resistance of the left and the deep state elevates to an unsustainable level and America falls into open civil conflict – either on par with 1968, or God forbid, 1861. I guess we will all see what happens soon enough.
