Have you noticed the pessimistic attitudes of many elitists about democracy? Under recently, leftists did not seem to care at all about democracy, but many of them are crying about the loss of democracy. We hear it from politicians like Adam Schiff and want-a-be politicians like Hillary Clinton. We hear it from media personalities like Brian Williams. They all are terribly worried that democracy will be destroyed in 2024, if not in 2022.
Victor Davis Hanson believes that he
knows the answer: “The left expects to lose power over the next two years.” In
2020, Democrats won the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives,
and they have been running wild with the power of those positions. In doing so,
“the left has managed in just 11 months to alienate a majority of voters.”
Hanson then recounts the many ways that Democrats lost support.
The nation has been wracked by
unprecedented crime and nonenforcement of the borders. Leftist district
attorneys either won’t indict criminals; they let them out of jails or both.
Illegal immigration and inflation are
soaring. Deliberate cuts in gas and oil production helped spike fuel prices.
All this bad news is on top of the Afghanistan
disaster, worsening racial relations, and an enfeebled president.
Democrats are running 10 points behind the
Republicans in generic polls, with the midterms less than a year away.
President Joe Biden’s negatives run
between 50% and 57% -- in Trump’s own former underwater territory.
Less than a third of the country wants
Biden to run for reelection. In many head-to-head polls, Trump now defeats
In other words, leftist elites are
terrified that democracy will work too robustly.
Senators are sponsoring a bill to
add four justices to the Supreme Court because they are terrified that the
conservative justices will rule in favor of the Constitution. They clamored to
defund the police and allowed hoodlums to burn and loot their cities. Now they
are trying to hire more police.
Democrat policies have wrecked the economy
and destroyed millions of jobs. Their policies have made the U.S. the laughingstock
of the world and weakened our military. They mandate COVID-19 vaccinations even
as data shows that vaccinated people are catching the new variant more than the
unvaxed. Biden’s polling numbers are in the tank with only a third of Democrats
supporting his re-election.
The Democrats are so fearful of the loss
of democracy that all they can talk or write about is the January 6th
assault on the Capitol. Their so-called investigation is a witch hunt for Donald
Trump and his supporters. The vision of increasing numbers of Americans is
clearing, and they are starting to see the Democrats as they really are. Hanson
[The leftists] are fearful and angry not because democracy doesn’t work, but because it does despite their own media and political efforts to warp it.
When a party is hijacked by radicals and
uses almost any means necessary to gain and use power for agendas that few
Americans support, then average voters express their disapproval.
That reality apparently terrifies an
elite. It then claims any system that allows the people to vote against the
left is not people power at all.
Americans must continue to awake and
to see things as they really are. They must first learn that America is not a
democracy. The Founders created America as a democratic republic because they
knew that democracies are easy to overthrow. That is why Democrats want to do
away with the Electoral College and have presidents elected on a popular vote.
The Founders understood what they were doing and why they were doing it. The
problem comes from Americans of our day who do not understand the greatness of
America and want to fundamentally transform the United States. If leftists are
allowed to remain in power, they will destroy America as we know it.
