Trying to Think Ahead

Trying to Think Ahead, by Christopher Chantrill.

I thought that all the smart people agreed … about The Emerging Democratic Majority of women, minorities, young people, and professionals. So who needs to game the vote, Democrats?

So why do they need bushels of Dominion votes in four Democrat cities — Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Atlanta — to win Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia? Why the thirty-year effort of the Dems to relax the rules on voting, from Motor Voter to the present vote-by-mail?

Why is it necessary to game the vote — even steal an election? Why is it necessary to hound a duly-elected president with a Special Prosecutor and goose up an impeachment over a phone call, and blast him throughout the COVID-19 epidemic? Why is it necessary to call your opponents systemic racists 50 years after the civil rights acts? Why is it necessary to censor social media, bearded @jack? Why is it necessary to hide Hunter Biden’s influence peddling? I thought you guys already owned the future. …

Why indeed. The left always tries on the inevitability argument — “we are going to win, so give in now.”

If President Trump claws back the win … then we haven’t solved the basic problem, which is that the Democratic Party is deeply corrupt, and that its agenda, from climate change to systemic racism, is an agenda by, for, and about the educated elite. The party, its officeholders, the media, and the whole educated elite needs to be sent to the woodshed and told to stay there until they come up with an agenda that will actually help ordinary Americans. …

Our present ruling class rules on the basis of its superior education and evolution and its moral commitment to fighting racism, sexism, and homophobia. That is its “political formula.” Notice how this formula does not connect with the basic beliefs of the American people.

On the other hand, Trump’s “political formula” is that the American people are the best people in the world, America is the best country in the world, and you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Which political formula do you think appeals best to ordinary Americans?
