Now the Left seeks to render him ineligible for future office. They have warped and distorted and subverted and undermined the integrity of our Congress, our courts, our military, and our system of justice in their desperate attempts to prevent Trump from ever representing our cause again. They think that if they can block Trump, they can keep us from thwarting their perverse agendas and that they can retain the power they have usurped.
Regardless of its impact, this story means that when Biden recently said that “this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history, in recent American history,” he likely made that claim in part out of a focus-group-tested poll that said the best way to get liberals to view their fellow Americans in a negative light is to call them “MAGA.”
On the other side is DeSantis, who is calmer and more focused than Trump, but hasn’t had as much time to prove himself an enemy of the elites and show that he’ll fight in the sort of savage, no holds barred style that Trump does. Additionally, many on the MAGA-right are worried that DeSantis has neo-con sympathies and are disturbed by the fact that the never-Trumper, Bill Kristol crowd supports him.
According to the survey, Trump is the favorite of the majority of the GOP, with 53% of Republican voters choosing him as their first choice. That’s a massive win, as it’s 40 points more than the closest runner-up, Ron DeSantis, who came in with 13% support. And DeSantis, who’s much like Trump in terms of major policy goals, was the only other candidate who was able to garner double-digit support. The others, when compared to Trump and DeSantis, couldn’t even do that.
But real America couldn’t care less. It loves Trump’s style, his fighting spirit, his energy, and his inner determination. Whatever the personal cost, they want America to succeed and would do anything to get there. A percentage point or two of GDP don’t matter if it means crushing China. Higher prices don’t matter if it means the return of factories to America.
Under Trump, things were improving, in many cases rapidly. Military readiness was increasing, the economy was booming, companies were reshoring profits and jobs, and, most importantly, Americans across the country glimpsed the vision of American Greatness that should be omnipresent in our lives.
In this installment of Weekend Conversations, PF Whalen of The Blue State Conservative and Parker Beauregard of The Last Best Hope examine the level of success achieved by President Donald J. Trump in his effort to ‘Make America Great Again.’ At the time of our correspondence, the election results are still unclear, therefore the contents of this conversation can be considered as either a halftime analysis or a single-term evaluation.
Likewise, the Trump victory exposed the many frauds that used to masquerade as Republicans. These people quickly emerged as the Never Trumpers and it was clear that they had grown accustomed to their dance with Democrats. In reality, they were not far apart from Democrats. They always held the same elitist philosophy, they knew they were smarter and more sophisticated than the rubes that voted for them. Political affiliations just gave them power and influence over a different group of people.
