Self-avowed socialist candidate Bernie Sanders is garnering a stunning wave of support weeks before Super Tuesday. He’s got large crowds and a bold message for the next generation of Americans — albeit largely uninformed Americans.
Additionally, former NYC mayor Mike Bloomberg is willing to invest hundreds of millions, if not billions, into ensuring that President Donald Trump never steps into the White House again come January 2021.
With the promise of outrageous spending and hopes of record Democratic turnout, a victory for Trump in November is not guaranteed.
And that’s unfortunate because he’s been arguably the best president of our lifetimes.
Here’s the thing — Democrats got cocky in 2016.
They put up the worst presidential candidate in modern history with Hillary Clinton, alienated a massive portion of their party by stealing the nomination from Sanders, and had the mainstream media do their bidding.
They thought it was over. They thought Trump ruined his chance. They thought a Republican could never be elected again.
Ultimately, they were wrong.
And libertarians, Republicans, conservatives, and Trump supporters are wrong if we think that a socialist president can’t ever be elected as President of the United States.
From impeachment to Russia-gate investigations, the president has taken a beating unlike any other in American history. The media dances with every new story portraying Trump in a bad light, knowing it continues to energize the left.
Thankfully, Americans have seen through it. Trump has made good on a majority of his campaign promises, from beginning construction of a border wall to tearing up NAFTA to lowering taxes. The president has been a remarkable force for the conservative agenda, the likes of which we may never see again.
At the same time, Millennials and Gen. Z — those who have been fed the silver spoon of American prosperity since the day they were born — see only the shiny objects that are free college or healthcare. These socialistic ideas don’t appeal to rational people, but the emotional.
Emotional voters are passionate voters — and they tend to turn out in large numbers on election day.
And with each passing day that the media says “Trump is holding strong in the polls” or “Democrats are in disarray,” another voter looking to spite Republicans and cancel their vote is born.
In 2016, Trump was the underdog. This year, not so much.
The president can absolutely lose if conservatives justify not voting because they believe a socialist can never win the White House. The institutions have been trying to get a man like Bernie Sanders in the Oval Office for decades — heck, they were successful in getting the milquetoast, watered-down socialist in former President Barack Obama.
We’ve got a long fight ahead of us and we hold the high ground, so let’s not throw it all away because we think people are less stupid than they are.
Vote for Trump like your life depends on it — because it does.
