Typically, Midterms are almost always handed to the party not in power at the time. Which means, Democrats should be sitting pretty right about now, but their leap into the looney abyss is freaking voters out – and it should! The average person worries about tangible and reasonable issues, like the economy. The socialist ideology of ‘free now and we’ll figure it out later’ isn’t just financially insane but could potentially put American’s in ruins for generations – and we know it.
Let’s face it, the left hasn’t been ‘reasonable’ in a long time. However, their new adoption of socialism paired with not wanting to be associated with the violence we’ve witnessed in the recent past is scaring away their own voters.
Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez displayed a frightening level of economic illiteracy on The Daily Show this week, getting even basic information wrong. It was enough to make you wonder if she is capable of making change for a dollar. Yet they still rally around her, propping her up as a hero with many leading 2020 Democrats taking their lead from this economic Exxon Valdez.
When normal Americans hear this clown tossing around terms like everyone needs to pay their “fair share” of taxes, calling for a carbon tax, higher corporate taxes that’s we’ll all pay, and more to cover the cost of “free” this and “free” that and they hide their wallets. But it’s an aphrodisiac to leftists. The more they get turned on the more people get turned off, so I hope Alex is on TV so often people think she has a show. She’ll win her race while damaging her party.
Of course, all of this would be laughed off the public stage if people were thinking logically, thinking straight. But Democrats, in and out of the media, have mastered the manipulation tactic of keeping their supporters on the edge snapping, on the edge of outrage to prevent rational thought. While that allows for the true believers to be easily steered in any direction, that level of dedication also turns off the un-indoctrinated. If the GOP has a hope of bucking midterm history it’s here, in their anger and in their crazy.
The economy is booming, which is both a blessing and a curse for Republicans. Not having to worry about finding a job or paying their bills is a plus for the GOP, but it also frees people to care about other things, petty things, emotional things.
A new Gallup poll showed the economy was the number one issue for only 14 percent of the American people, so one of the Republican’s strongest campaign issues isn’t a motivating factor for a large swath of the public. While they love the booming economy, elections are rarely about what you’ve done, they’re about what you’re going to do next. That’s how Winston Churchill lost a bid for reelection within weeks of leading the UK through World War II.
Running on “You’ve never had it so good” doesn’t work when what people want to hear is what’s next. People tend to take having it good for granted.
