The battles for these United States are all around us. The Republicans are losing because they have not begun to fight. When Democrats are elected, then the media and bureaucrats tell us we should follow the decisions of our elected leaders. When Republicans are elected, then the media and bureaucrats say that the office holders are illegitimate. The claim is that all Democrats are virtuous, even when they are rapists, while all Republicans are evil, even if they are enforcing laws the Democrats passed. It is time to fight back.
Trump helped cut taxes. Suddenly the Democrats discovered fiscal restraint. It was called a sin against humanity if we kept more of our money. Both the Progressive pols and their media forgot that Obama doubled the US debt. I didn’t hear a Republican point out their hypocrisy.
Democrats claim that sanctuary cities are simply ignoring unjust laws. I love this approach to violating federal law. I want to do the same thing. This way, un-sanctuary cities can ignore birth-right citizenship. While we’re at it, un-sanctuary cities can ignore that laws that give illegal immigrants government funded schooling, housing, food and medical care. Let’s also disallow the labor expenses paid by companies that hire illegals. (The wages paid to illegals are company charity, not a deductible business expense.) Democrats only want the rule of law when Republicans are willing to play hardball.
The Obama Administration fought against the interstate sale of handguns. Unfortunately, the Trump Administration continued to pursue some of these unresolved cases. I blame Attorney General Jeff Sessions for continuing to pursue the case and ruling against gun owners. If the roles were reversed, then the Obama Administration would have deliberately killed the case. Refusing to use the political powers abused by your predecessor isn’t about fairness, justice, legality or “good sportsmanship”: it is unilateral surrender. Ask yourself WWOD. (What would Obama do.) That rule doesn’t impose much moral restraint. I’d have a long lists of plaintiffs who would sue and settle.
Democrats are out for power while the Republicans are hoping for approval. Trump understands these political contests. The President knows that Democrats and their media will dump hate on him no matter what he does or doesn’t do. Meanwhile, the RINOs are uncertain.
These gutless Republicans can’t withstand the criticism thrown at them by the Dems and their media. These Republican politicians-for-life would rather lose than fight. Get them out of office before we lose our country.
