I wrote at the end of my previous article, the one discussing how Trump is not caving on the wall, that I might write an article discussing the various reasons not to allow any democrat to beat Trump in the 2020 Presidential election.
Well, here’s my list for as many reasons as I can think of (that won’t make this article as long as an encyclopedia because I could probably list many more reasons).
Reason number one: No matter who becomes the Democrat Party nominee, they are all basically the same. What do I mean by that? Well, unlike the Republican Party, which is stupidly split on a lot of issues such as immigration, healthcare and many other things, the Democrats, to their credit, actually know how to stay united.
They may debate with one another as to what might be the best option, but at the end of the day, they manage to come together and actually get things done in their agenda. And their agenda really differs little from person to person.
While Trump’s and Jeb’s, or Cruz’s, or Rubio’s agenda are fairly different, the Democrats all follow the Leftist agenda. Sure, one might prioritize something different from another, but it all leads them to the same place: the growing in size and scope of the government and their own power, while taking your freedoms away.
It doesn’t matter if they prioritize gun control, climate change, LGBT “rights”, healthcare, it all leads to the Left getting more and more power. Ultimately, these are all things every Leftist agrees on. So it doesn’t matter if Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders or Beto O’Rourke becomes President, they would all basically be the same and support the exact same things. There really is no good option among them, just the least likely to utterly screw over the country (and there is little difference in that area as well).
Reason number two: Just as Trump was able to dismantle Obama’s legacy, so would any Democrat be able to do that to Trump’s.
The unfortunate thing about the GOP stabbing Trump in the back repeatedly is that they don’t get much done. And what they get done can easily be overturned. And what is overturned, even if unconstitutionally, they will not seriously fight against. The proof is in the fact that they had ample opportunity in the past couple of years to get rid of Obamacare and did not bother to do so. As far as the tax cuts go, as good as those are, they can easily be taken away. With a Democrat running the country again, the GOP would do little to actually fight back, just like during the Obama years.
This means saying goodbye to our tax cuts and being faced with job-killing tax rates. It means the dismantling of our border. It means the ultimate destruction of our freedoms. Maybe not with the next Democrat President, but it would certainly lead to that in the future.
Reason number 3: We now know the Left’s true face. I often say that Trump’s election victory didn’t create this Leftist insanity, but it did let the mask slip from the Left’s face. In the past, the Left would at least pretend to be a little more reasonable. That is long gone now.
I’m not saying that had Hillary won, we would be in a better place. Far from it, the magnitude at which we’d be screwed is incalculable. Not to mention that the very reason Bernie Sanders felt confident to come out as socialist, and other people have felt confident to come out as socialist, is 8 years of Obama moving the needle of our country’s governmental system farther and farther to the Left.
Trump didn’t create Bernie Sanders or help Bernie come out as socialist, but it did get the Left to more aggressively embrace socialism. No, maybe not everyone on the Democrat Party is quite so willing to call themselves socialist, but that’s where they’re headed. If socialism is what sells and gets them votes, that’s what they’ll embrace (not that they weren’t embracing it before, but they were at least trying to not come right out as socialists).
This means implementing more and more socialist policies that will lead to the United States emulating China at the very least. Since we are still a super power and the wealthiest country in the world, we can take some hits, but if the trend goes farther and farther Left, we will eventually not be the wealthiest country in the world and we will quickly fall from grace as a super power.
Again, maybe not with the next immediate Democrat President, but that’s what it would lead to.
Reason number 4: there is no other Republican out there that has the cojones to do what Trump is trying to do.
One thing that we’ve all noticed in the past couple of years (and really throughout Obama’s tenure as well) is the fact that the GOP tends to be pretty chummy with the Democrat Party and often ignores the very constituents that elected them into power. In what can only be considered an abusive relationship, the GOP tries to appease Democrats and the media, all the while pretending to be fighting for something, but ultimately not getting anything done. Whenever the media calls them racist, they bow their heads in shame and say “I’m sorry, I will never do something like that again”. Regardless of what they do, it’s never enough for the Democrats and the media, with them demanding the Republicans hand over everything including the kitchen sink.
These past two years in particular have shown this level of cowardice. While not all Republicans are guilty of this, far too many have been complacent at the least. John McCain, up to his death, opposed Trump (and I imagine he was all too happy to have his funeral be a massive Trump-bashing fest). Jeff Flake is still a nuisance. Bob Corker ditto. And incoming GOPe (GOP establishment) people like Romney certainly will take up the mantle left behind by these people.
The evidence to this is clear when they made their best efforts to try and legitimize the illegitimate Mueller investigation, with Flake actually trying to pass legislation that protects the crooked prosecutor.
With Trump out of the picture, what Republican in Washington or in government in general would be willing to do what Trump’s been trying to do: take on the Deep State? I wouldn’t put my trust in Ted Cruz, as conservative as I think he is. Same goes for people like Rep. Mark Meadows or Rep. Jim Jordan, as good as I think they are (and they’re really trying to help Trump build the wall here).
Now, I know I said in a previous article that I did not picture Trump doing this back in 2014, two years before the 2016 election. So someone could potentially come up and try to take on the Deep State, but I don’t think there’s much of a chance of that. Even less that they’d succeed at any capacity.
Not trying to be pessimistic here, just trying to highlight the importance of helping Trump win in 2020.
The next Democrat President, whether he or she comes into power after 2020, 2024, 2028, or whatever, will most likely be the most Leftist and socialist President we will ever have seen. One who would make Obama look like Reagan by comparison. And the ones to follow the next Democrat POTUS will only move the line farther to the Left until we reach the end: complete and total communism.
Even if Republican Presidents were to be elected in between those Democrats, there’d be little they could do, even if they were willing to.
This is why it’s so important that we help Trump win 2020 no matter what. Of course, not building a wall would be a huge detriment, but that’d still be no reason to allow a Democrat to take over, ensuring that the borders get even less security and more lives grow at stake.
It’s also why it’s so important to elect truly conservative, truly CHRISTIAN people to government and to get truly conservative and truly CHRISTIAN SCOTUS justices.
For as much as I talked about Kavanaugh being conservative and a Christian, I might have to eat my own words, given what he’s done so far. Of course, there is still a possibility for redemption for him (both in terms of redeeming himself to conservatives and being redeemed by Christ), so I’m not quite ready to say he was a mistake of a pick (Amy Coney Barrett wouldn’t have done what Kavanaugh did, though), but he’s got a lot to make up for.
If we can get more and more conservatives and Christians into power, then there is a chance at truly defeating the Left, but that will have to come with a complete Christian revival and the ability and willingness to go after the Deep State’s crookedness, not just in calling them out over it, but to execute justice as well.
Trump won’t be around forever. Unlike Xi Jinping, Trump can’t declare himself President For Life (I imagine a future Democrat President would try that, though). So once Trump is gone from office, what comes after? That’s something we have to come to answer sooner rather than later, because for as much as I hope and think Trump can be re-elected, there is a chance he won’t be.
When the time comes for him to leave office, we will have to brace ourselves for what would come after. And there is no better way to do that than to consult and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
You see, while I’ve given a few reasons to not allow the Democrats to beat Trump in 2020 (and I think there are a bunch more, but I don’t want to make this article too long), the matter of fact is that I’m probably right about what would come with a Trump defeat. As a result, nothing good will be brought about, and we could well be facing the beginning of the end of America as we know it (unless we have the aforementioned Christian revival, but God knows if or when that would happen).
That’s not to say there wouldn’t be a United States of America in, say, 50 or 100 years, but it would be practically unrecognizable from the one that was founded.
But the good news about even such a scenario happening is that we are not only citizens of the United States, but also citizens of the Kingdom of God. I saw this often during both the 2012 election and 2016 election (and I’ll probably also see it in 2020), but I remember a post that read “regardless of who’s President, Jesus is King,” or something to that nature. And it’s true.
Jesus was King before America was founded. He has been King for as long as America has been around, and He will be King after America falls.
One of the main objectives of this site has been to try to direct people to Christ. Though I don’t always get to that point, I think I really should start doing this far more often. Because the unfortunate reality is that, eventually, one of these lunatics is going to be in the White House. As a result, we really must brace for what is to come. And there is no better way to brace for disaster than in the comfort of Christ.
My mission is not just to fight for the survival of America, which really is only a secondary mission, but to also fight for the survival and growth of Christianity; helping as many people to receive Christ as I possibly can.
So that’s the good news regardless of what may happen from here on out. Even if evil wins against America, Jesus has already won against evil. That being said, I think we all should try and fight against the evil that wishes to destroy America. Though that really goes without saying.
