In the past few weeks, analysts who have created models to predict the outcome of presidential elections have all noted that, as of right now, President Donald Trump is on track to win re-election, possibly in a landslide.
One such analyst, American University professor Allan Lichtman, said recently that the only way Trump would lose re-election is if Democrats “grow a spine” and impeach him.
“It’s a false dichotomy to say Democrats have a choice between doing what is right and what is constitutional and what is politically right. Impeachment is also politically right,” Lichtman told CNN Wednesday.

Hmmm. We saw the reaction of leftists when Donald Trump won the first time. What if he does win again — perhaps in a landslide? What then?
Most of us grew up hearing the words, “don’t be a sore loser”. The idea was to instill dignity. What we have seen from opponents of President Trump since his election is ZERO dignity.
The crying rooms, the cut offs, the social media attacks, the violence (remember a Republican Congressman was shot, and a Republican Senator, Rand Paul, was attacked in his yard), the utterly imaginary and arbitrary charges of “collusion” with the Russian government … it’s staggering. It’s endless. It’s almost beyond imagination. If someone had told you three years ago all this would be happening, would you have believed it?
Those of us who opposed Barack Obama were just as unhappy when he won not once, but twice. The proof of that is that we drove ourselves to what might be called hitting bottom — voting for candidates like John McCain and Mitt Romney to try and stop Obama. To vote for such unprincipled and intolerable men … That’s how much we didn’t want Obama to win. Yet did you see anything remotely like this after Obama’s two victories?
There’s no dignity among leftists. None.
Dignity arises from different things. It arises from self-respect. It also arises from respect for humanity. Even if particular, individual human beings disgust, revolt or offend you, it’s possible to have respect for the dignity of human beings as they might be and ought to be — for human beings at their best.
Leftists and other anti-Trumpers claim to have this. But they exhibit NONE of it. NONE of it. Ever. I don’t know of any exceptions to what I’m saying, personally or in the wider culture. It’s staggering.
They claim they oppose President Trump because, they say, he lacks dignity and class. Yet if they really valued these qualities, don’t you think they’d find alternatives to the classlessness and total lack of dignity they have displayed in voicing their opposition?
There’s so much they could do. They could go about the business of advocating for socialism and Communism. It’s what they want. At least people like Bernie Sanders and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez do that much. They’re wrong to the point of absurdity and hilarity. They would be truly dangerous if they ever acquired any serious power. We would literally have to take up armed resistance against them, if it came to that, which would be very frightening and sad. But at least they’re making the case for what they think is right, stupid and insane as it is. They’re like little children, testing the boundaries to see how much they can get away with. Supporting President Trump is the only way, at the moment, to fight them back with overwhelming force. A landslide victory for Trump along with a defeat of Democrats in Congress (yes, I know most Republicans are still useless and worthless) would be a way to forestall and hopefully prevent the kind of dictatorship this entire political party now seeks to impose on us.
I shudder to think what it will be like if Trump wins reelection. Don’t get me wrong. I hope for it like anything. He’s not perfect, but he’s literally the ONLY firewall left between millions of people (I hope still a majority) who want freedom and a government that has totally lost control of itself. President Trump says some eloquent things in favor of freedom and against socialism. What does the other side do? Personally attack and double down on their support of tyranny.
Ultimately, I blame the people who installed these career politicians for getting us into this mess in the first place. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have been around for decades. But the people still have an opportunity to overthrow them. Trump’s election was a shocking and momentous step in the direction of doing so. But we need a permanent political movement, one which will grow and not peak with Trump’s presidency, even a two-term presidency.
We need a movement dedicated to the precise opposite of literally every single thing the leftist socialist Communist fascist Democrats now stand for.
The Democrats’ lack of dignity comes from anxiety. It’s the kind of thing you find in all emotional abusers or tyrants. They’re not confident in themselves, or their failed ideas. They hope to bring you down with them.
If you let them, then it’s all on you.
