2020 Smackdown: Only One Party Will Survive!

2020 Smackdown: Only One Party Will Survive! By Andrew Klavan.

More and more, I begin to suspect that only one of the two major parties will survive the next presidential election intact. The names Republican and Democrat may remain, but it seems unlikely — nearly impossible — that the losing party will continue as anything like what it was. …

If Trump wins:

if Trump survives himself and wins, the most likely reason will be the fact that the Left is destructive, unpatriotic, oppressive, and truly un-American. In the aftermath, they will have to ask themselves: How did we blow this against such a man? And I, and every other political observer on earth, will be only too happy to explain it to them. I do not think ignorami like the Squad or even a canny Leftist like Nancy Pelosi will survive that reassessment.

If the left win:

If Trump loses, the most likely reason will be his bad behavior. And if the Left gets back in power, I sincerely doubt there will be much of Constitutional America that will survive. They have already shown themselves willing to dispatch the FBI, the CIA, and the IRS to silence and slander their political opponents. They have already demonstrated they can mobilize virtually the entire media in mass deception and coverup as with the Russia collusion hoax and the Kavanaugh sex lie.

Even if they don’t kill the electoral college, pack the Supreme Court, disarm the populace they despise, and declare anti-Democrat speech outside the protection of the First Amendment, they’ll do what they can to make it impossible for the Republican party as it stands to win the White House ever again. The Republicans, having lost due to the very rudeness that helped them win, will be forced to reinvent themselves as gelded European Tories, essentially on the right side of Leftism. That’s where they were heading before Trump came along anyway.

Not left and right any more:

Because we are now no longer merely divided between Right and Left. We are divided between Friends of the Founding and the Founding’s Foes. On one side are those who believe our past is great, that our ideas have led us to more power and prosperity than any nation that has ever existed, and that our freedom is a good in itself — that it is well worth tolerating the occasional evil it allows. On the other side are those who imagine they can abandon the philosophy and traditions that got us here and, through some greater goodness within themselves, build a utopian society that has never existed on earth and — spoiler alert — never will.
