I don’t know if Niels Bohr, Nostradamus, Samuel Goldwyn or Yoga Berra was the first to use the phrase “Predictions are difficult, particularly about the future,” or one of its many variants, but I think most of us would agree that they all have some validity.
Nevertheless, I’m going to go ahead and make a big one and, yes, it involves that other hoary proverb about it always being darkest before the dawn, since we seem to be in a very dark period, but… here goes…
The Democratic Party is headed for epochal electoral disasters in 2022 and most probably 2024. They will be trounced by a renewed GOP.
And I’m saying that even factoring in what many on the right believe with increasing justification—a lot of cheating has been going on.
Yes, it will still be there in those years, but not as much because the number of people watching is going up exponentially.
America is poised for a big reaction. And I’m not a Pollyanna… well, not completely. I’m just a one time high school physics student who remembers Newton’s third law about action and reaction.
The big winner in those coming elections will be the Trump-DeSantis party, in whatever order emerges, and among the big losers, besides the Democrats, will be the thirty-five House Republicans who voted for a Jan. 6 investigation, however few of them are left after primary season.
Due to the overwhelming majority of the media (which few pay attention to anymore), the academy (a self-immolating problem I will get into in a moment) and their own extreme leftwing, the Democrats are losing contact with the American people on a daily basis.
In their gigantic, seemingly endless, spending programs, they ignore the obvious, spoken aloud by Bill Clinton in his 1996 State of the Union and not really contradicted since: “The era of big government is over.”
But didn’t it come back with COVID? Not much apparently.
In a new Rasmussen poll voters prefer small to big government by the significant margin of 55 percent to 37 percent. They also, in a poll only a week or two before, prefer capitalism to socialism by more than three to one—65 percent to 18 percent. (Yes, Rasmussen tilts Republican but his record has historically been among the most accurate—and these aren’t close calls.)
