The hate filled, extremist, radical left has now grown to a critical mass that will exponentially grow. The Socialists have exposed themselves. The republicans are confident that the Americans will make the smart choice, but sadly they are mistaken. For many decades now, the Socialists have been running the "Democratic" party from the shadows. This is evident in their voting pasterns and a consistent trend of change that has been masked as a natural progression.
The "Progressive" (Regressive) Leftists will tell you that they are in favor of "Progressive" taxation. Don't be fooled. "Progressive Taxation" is Marxist wealth redistribution. The Leftists will mock this notion because the majority of them are useful idiots who actually believe they are working for the betterment of Humanity, and the Minority of Leftists who are actually self aware of their flaws will mock this notion for sake of optics; they want to trick the more gullible Right wingers and useful idiots alike. Many "Conservatives" will also mock this notion because they are either in denial, or they were gullible enough to be tricked into thinking that "Progressive Taxation" doesn't mean "Marxist Wealth Redistribution".
The Conservatives who oppose Marxism are normies who haven't caught up with the changing times. They don't understand that the Socialists have already seized positions of power within the Education system and the Tech Oligopoly. Even though 80% of Americans are ADAMANTLY opposed to Marxism and totalitarian statism, most Americans are going to applaud its arrival without knowing it.
Remember, at the height of the USSR, the Democrats claimed that the Soviet Union was not a threat. The Conservatives "Conserved" Americanisms with the support of the Corrupt Military Industrial Complex. The promotion of American Patriotism was a lucky, positive, side effect spurred by the collusion between corrupt politicians and greedy corporations. In this corrupt clown world, we need to count our blessings; take everything with a pinch of salt. (Now that the USSR has collapsed, our military industrial complex simply exploits 911.) The Democrats took the negative connotation that the Russian faction had from the cold war and are using it for their anti-American/Socialist agenda.
According to the Democrats, the USSR was okay when they were Communists, but now that the USSR collapsed, Russia is 1/8th as powerful, and China is Communist…. The Democrats Demonize Russia as much as possible while DEMANDING good relations with literally all Communist nations. This is just an extremely brief abridgment of the full story.
The point I'm trying to make/what I want my readers to take from this is, don't be over confident about Trump's victory in 2020. The American Socialists/Communists still have many powerful assets in the United States, they have many tricks still up their sleeves, and 20% of Americans literally want America to become exactly like Venezuela.
Good luck everyone. Right now truly is the calm before the perfect storm. It doesn't seem like it if you haven't studies the prerequisites. Set aside your bias and look at the facts.
