Think about this – a significant portion of our country, including a majority of its elite, thinks that it’s A-OK for a Democrat administration to spy on a Republican candidate. Think hard about that. And think about whether or not we can ever put the pieces of our shattered republic back together again if we can’t even agree that using government power against our political enemies is a bad thing.
But the terrifying truth is that liberals* and their Never Trump enablers actually think this kind of tyranny is a good thing. You see, they think Normal Americans are so transcendently awful (and, even more importantly, that the elite’s power so precious) that all is fair in order to stifle their opponents’ collective voice.I believe that is true of the Progressives, the Never Trumpers, and a number of politicians. I don't think it is true of the average Democrat voter. The average Democrat voter watches CNN, the Nightly News from one of the networks, and is too busy with his or her own life to dig too deeply into what is REALLY happening. What conservative news they do hear, because it conflicts with what they mostly consume is dismissed as "fake news." I don't offer this as an excuse, but more as a reason. Unfortunately, this Democrat voter will nonetheless vote us into tyranny.
When people complain because their healthcare insurance costs keep going up by 25-50%, I will ask them if they voted for Obama. Most of the time, they will say they did. I point out that they were warned, and that it is their own fault. They just look at me, of course. Then I tell them all the articles that warned of what an Obama administration would mean, and of course they are aware of none of them. If some say that it wasn't their fault, but the fault of the politicians, I point again to who voted for those Democrat politicians?
No one objected. The Democrat Party is committed to the New Rules. And the New Rules are tyranny....snip...
They are going to hate the New Rules.
We need to return to the Old Rules, starting with the rule of law. It’s that or split our country in two, one free and one Democrat. Or it could be something even worse.
The United States of America cannot function where one of the two parties effectively recognizes no limits on the use of government power to impose its will upon the other half. We Normal Americans are woke, and we Normals are getting militant. We see what’s happening. But do the liberals and their Never Trump lackies? Do they really want to go down this road?Because having tyranny is tyranny, no matter whether it is Progressive tyranny, or something other. Go read the whole thing. Then, if you are a Democrat voter, read both sides, find out what is really going on. Do not dismiss this with a moral equivalence argument of "both sides do it" because both sides do not. What has been done to Trump is bigger that Watergate, and if the people involved in Watergate went to prison, and Nixon was forced to resign, how much more should the Russiagate conspirators go to prison?
* Schichter still uses the polite term "liberal" for people who are anything but "liberal." Please, in your own mined substituted Communist, Fascist, Progressive, Marxist for the term "liberal." One thing that remains true is the these people can never tell the truth about themselves, so they invent various terms that they have to discard and invent a new term whenever Normals catch on to their perfidy.
