As much as I find it astonishing that I could ever agree with Michael Moore on something, it’s finally happened. While we disagree on virtually everything ever in relation to politics, we seemingly share a common belief: President Donald Trump will be re-elected in 2020.
Now, there’s added stipulation to that idea, which is where we disagree once more. Moore believes Trump will win only if Democrats become complacent and believe they will win 2020 guaranteed. Such cockiness obviously back-fired in 2016 and Moore believes such cockiness, if it shows itself again and gets Democrat voters to not even bother voting because Trump will lose no matter what, will guarantee Trump gets re-elected.
Now, I did say I disagreed with that, but I should clarify that I don’t totally disagree. You see, he’s right in that Democrats will 100% lose in 2020 if they become as complacent as they were in 2016. However, he’s wrong, in my opinion, that avoiding such complacency will mean Trump loses in 2020. But the reason I argue this, I will share momentarily. First, I want to share what Moore actually said.
“Too many people in the summer of 2016 were so sure Hillary was going to win, saying no one is going to vote for this idiot. He could win again. I operate as if he is a two-term Trump. I have to. If you think any other way you are guaranteeing that whoever is going to run against him will lose.”
Moore went on to say that Trump is “an evil genius and he was able to outsmart the smartest person ever to run for president. He figured out how to win by losing the election. How did that happen? Historians are going to deal with this for years to come.”
Okay, there are a lot of things to get through with this. First, I don’t think I need to explain how Trump is not an “evil genius” as Moore describes him. He’s one of the most pro-life Presidents we’ve seen, he’s done his part to help out people who have suffered from hurricanes, he’s defended the people of Syria from their own government and he’s created millions of jobs and a booming economy that doesn’t show signs of slowing down.
Second, he thinks Hillary was the smartest person ever?! HAHAHAHAHAHA! If she’s the smartest person ever then I’m the tooth fairy.
Third, I have a few theories as to what he means by “he won by losing the election”. Either he is talking about losing the popular vote and still winning the election, which makes sense since he’s talked about it in the past (as has virtually every other salty Democrat and Leftist ever) or he’s talking about the hoax of a Trump-Russia collusion that “helped” Trump win an election he would have otherwise lost. Either could be the case, but I’m thinking the former is what he means. Either way, it’s dumb.
We have an electoral college for a reason. Trump won 304 delegates while Hillary won 227. Trump won 2,626 counties compared to Hillary’s 487. Take away California and you have FAR MORE votes for Trump than Hillary. The reason we have an Electoral College is so that a single state can’t decide who wins the presidency for the rest of the country. The Electoral College gives every state a voice.
And I didn’t hear these children whining and moaning when Mitt Romney won the popular vote in 2012. By their own logic and complaints, the candidate who puts dogs on top of station wagons should have won over Obama. And yet, not one of them complained about the Electoral College.
Moore then goes on to theorize that the person who wrote the anti-Trump op-ed for the New York Times was either Trump himself or “one of his minions.” I won’t discuss this because the entire thing is asinine and only reinforces our belief that there is a silent coup against Trump. This op-ed does more damage to the Left than to Trump.
Now, earlier I promised to explain why I think Moore is wrong about Democrats being able to beat Trump in 2020 if they go out to vote. I will explain this now.
Moore believes the sole reason Trump won was because Democrats stayed at home in 2016. While that certainly helped, I fundamentally believe Trump would have won even if they turned out to vote. Why? Because Hillary would’ve meant more stagnation for America. We did not want that and chose Trump to lead the country.
In 2020, Moore believes Democrats can beat Trump if they turn out to vote. Wrong again, for multiple reasons. First of all, while Trump was relatively unproven in 2016, Trump has done more than enough to show he is a competent leader and a fantastic President for this country both in terms of a massive and speedy economic revival (that’s Trump’s, not Obama’s) and in terms of foreign policy, with a nearly destroyed ISIS, a denuclearizing North Korea and a defunded Iran (though Obama probably has done lasting damage there anyway).
Second of all, and I think this might be just as important a point to make: no matter who wins in 2018, Trump will likely win in 2020.
Say that Republicans keep control of Congress. The economy won’t likely slow down, more jobs will be created and the country will keep improving and improving. With all the success that another two years will bring (remember, we still haven’t even hit 2 years into Trump’s presidency and he’s done more than the last 2 presidents combined) and the country knowing full-well who can take credit for this American revival, Trump will almost certainly win in 2020.
Now, say that Democrats win either the House or Senate, or even both. For all their talks about impeachment, actually getting the job done is virtually impossible. They need two-thirds vote in the Senate (and no nuclear option will be available), as well as the VP to vote in favor of impeachment. If he doesn’t, Congress will have to find the votes to override the VP’s veto. Unless the Democrats get a super-majority in the Senate, the chances of which become zero if they lose even one of their seats, Trump won’t be impeached.
However, that does not mean the Democrats are left in tatters. If they can’t impeach Trump, they’ll settle for disrupting everything he tries to do (which even then they won’t be able to disrupt absolutely everything) and slow down the MAGA agenda. If the Democrats win in 2018, Trump likely won’t be impeached, but things will not be pretty at all. Things will be slowed down, taxes will get raised and the economic revival we’ve been experiencing will dilute and we’ll go back to some level of stagnation.
That being said, Democrats winning in 2018 will all but guarantee Trump wins in 2020, because we all know he is a master at successfully pinning the blame where it must go. While other Republicans are complacent and don’t put the blame on Democrats, at least effectively, Trump will be able to successfully blame the Democrats for any damage they cause.
The only ways I see Trump losing in 2020 is either Trump majorly messes up and loses support, which is not too likely to happen or Democrats win a super-majority and successfully impeach Trump, in which case there wouldn’t even be a 2020 election for Trump.
But a lot of things would have to go right for the Democrats that I simply don’t think will happen.
Now, I’m not guaranteeing this by any means. A lot of things can happen between now and next year, let alone 2020. With all of that said, this should not be an excuse not to go out and vote Republican this November. Though the likelihood of Trump getting impeached is low, a Democrat House and/or Senate could derail the country and set us back years.
Losing 2018 wouldn’t be the end of the world but it’s not an ideal scenario. I’d rather have scummy Republicans who are fairly complacent but will keep taxes low and jobs coming in and will leave Trump alone for the most part than have scummy Democrats who are thirsty for blood from Trump (figuratively) and anyone who ever dared support him, and thus, dared defy them.
Republicans may not have done much to earn our votes, but Democrats have done everything to let us know those nut-jobs should not get anywhere close to public office, lest they be allowed to run this country in the direction of Venezuela.
While there are some good Republicans, I do not see a single good Democrat. I’d rather take a shot with an untrustworthy Republican who might do the right thing on occasion than vote for a Democrat whom I fundamentally know wishes to turn this country upside down and into something it was never founded to be.
At this point, this race isn’t about Republican vs. Democrat. It’s not Right vs. Left. It’s Good vs. Evil. I’m not saying all Republicans are good, but voting for Democrats, at this stage in the game, is effectively voting for evil. What I mean by good vs. evil is it would be good for Republicans to keep control of Congress, even if they still play political games and try to attack Trump on occasion. But allowing Democrats to have control of either chamber of Congress, or both chambers of Congress is allowing for evil to basically run amok.
Regardless, that’s to be discussed at a later date. For now, I just wanted to take note that Michael Moore, for as ignorant as he is, is not a complete moron. He’s at least smart enough not to get too confident in Democrats. For that, I’ll give him credit. For everything else, however, that’s a different story.
Even when I agree with Moore, I end up disagreeing with him to some level. Isn’t life just funny sometimes?
