Yes, Nationalize the Midterms

The 2016 presidential election between then-candidate Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton was fierce. Clinton represented the established Democratic Party and the third term of Barack Obama. Donald Trump was the complete opposite, and never held a publicly elected office. The result of the election in November was shocking to many on both sides. Regardless, Trump won the presidency, and his victory was a referendum on the Obama agenda and the Washington D.C. establishment. Trump’s upset was a national shock, but voters said they did not want another Obama type term.

Now, we are in the midst of the 2018 midterms two years later. There are many things at stake. The Democrats are running on repealing Trump’s signature tax cuts which have driven up discretionary spending, created more jobs than workers and caused the stock market to break records. ISIS has lost their caliphate and scattered. North Korea has calmed down, and our military is gaining strength again. Constitutional originalist Justice Neil Gorsuch is on the Supreme Court and we will probably get another constructionist in Judge Brett Kavanaugh. We are respected, and the left does not like it. 

Old faces have stepped out of the shadows. Earlier this month, Obama gave a speech at the University of Illinois at Champaign after accepting the Paul H. Douglas Award for Ethics in Government. During the speech, he spoke against Trump by name. Obama attacked Trump and claimed the economy is doing well because of his policies when he was president, even though Trump dumped many Obama programs.  Then he attacked Congress as well. 

This week former Obama Vice President Joe Biden gave a speech calling Trump supporters the “dredges of society” while at a Human Rights Campaign annual dinner in Washington D.C. It appears that Uncle Joe forgot how badly the phrase “basket of deplorables” was for Hillary. Biden wants his party to have control, just let that sink in. 

Also this week, Hillary Clinton came out to speak about the faux Judge Kavanaugh crisis. She stated that if the GOP refuses to let Christine Blasey Ford take the entire justice confirmation process hostage and get what she wants, then the Republicans will be “insulting” her. 

If voters wanted Hillary’s opinion on the SCOTUS issue, she would have won the Electoral College and the presidency. 

The three people mentioned earlier got repudiated on November 8, 2016. Americans were tired of their antics, faces, and voices. Now, they are waking up as the midterm elections get close. It has only been two years, and we are still tired of them. Unknowingly, they are stepping out to remind the voters why they were rejected.

It is time to nationalize local elections for the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. The Republicans should tie Obama, Biden, and Hillary to every Democrat who is running and remind the voters how terrible these lifetime politicians were for America. 

Trump’s time in office has exposed how dangerous the Democratic Party is to America’s economy, culture and safety. 

The midterms are about the Democrats wanting to take over and start their reign of power back down on American citizens. For eight years, the left got what they wanted, and now they are throwing a temper tantrum. If they win back the House, be ready for pure, unadulterated Constitutional assault and this time it is personal. 

The left hates you. Just remember that on November 6, 2018.
