Now, I know some Never Trumpers out there are going to call me a heretic for even suggesting something like that, but history tends to repeat itself. And that is precisely the case here.
What exactly do I mean when I say history repeats itself? Well, let’s look at some things from this last election and primary season.
Donald Trump was made fun of and ridiculed since the day he announced he would run for president. Everyone called him a joke of a candidate. Everyone thought he would implode within a couple of months and not even come close to being at the top of the polls for the Republican nomination.
But what if I were to tell you that people thought Reagan was a joke of a candidate too? Now, there was no social media back in Reagan’s day, so it was mostly people from the news media calling him that. But that’s where we draw our first comparison. Neither Republican candidate was taken seriously, until they both stunned the world and were elected. Hey, even the POLLS had them losing by the time the elections came around. But they both managed to defeat their opponents.
Now, that could be classified as a coincidence, but let’s remember the fact that both ran under similar slogans. Trump’s slogan was “Make America Great Again”. Reagan’s 1980 slogan was “Let’s Make America Great Again”. Both of these slogans attracted distraught people that thought their country was going in the wrong direction. That was evidenced by the fact that Carter didn’t even reach 50 delegates on Election Night 1980 and that Trump soundly defeated Clinton in what turned out to be not a close race at all.
The next thing to look at is the fact that both Trump and Reagan were both ‘politically incorrect’. Now, the term is a relatively new one. Today, we conservatives view political correctness as nothing more than an attempt to keep us from exercising our first amendment right to freedom of speech. We are not allowed to say ‘Merry Christmas’ in fear of ‘offending’ some atheists or Muslims. We can’t pray before sports events in fear of offending those same people. Yet atheists can call us bigots and racists all they want, calling a drawing of Mohammed racist but calling a jar with a cross in it filled with PISS art. In their minds, it’s politically incorrect to say that a Muslim wants to behead me even if I’m actually being chased by one down the street. They think it’s ok for a Muslim to kill a gay person for being gay, given the fact that they fail to condemn Islam for being bigoted against gays. But Trump doesn’t care if he’s called a bigot. He doesn’t care if he’s being politically ‘incorrect’. If he’s truly offended someone for something he said and he knows he shouldn’t have said that, he apologizes for it like a decent human being. But he’s not going to apologize for saying something that the Left doesn’t like just because they don’t like it. Particularly if it’s the truth.
The next comparison to look at is the fact that they have both at one time shared leftist views but have transitioned to more conservative ones. Reagan and Trump both used to be Democrats. But now, they have both run and have been elected as Republican presidents. They both used to be pro-choice, but have switched over to being pro-life. They’ve both shared a conservative view on economics. They’ve both favored tax reduction. And they both have defended the right to keep and bear arms.
Now, some of these things can be considered coincidental, such as their switching of parties. But there’s no denying here that they share a lot of similarities. And I, for one, am very enthusiastic about this incoming administration, knowing what we now all know about the similarities between the Republican champions. And I believe that Trump can do amazing things for this country because he knows he’ll HAVE to do great things for this country in order to fulfill his main campaign promise and slogan: Make America Great Again.
May God bless this next president and continue to bless the United States of America.
