We have heard dozens of times in the last couple of years that one thing or another was going to destroy our Democracy. It started with Donald Trump, whose sheer existence was the ultimate threat to our Democracy. I have to point out that we do not have a democracy in the United States but a republic. There is a tremendous difference, one that is lost on most Democrats. Democrats have no comprehension of the complexity of the Republic and how it allows for every citizen to be of equal importance. The Left would love to see the Republic crumble, the Electoral College abandoned, and the country dominated by the Northeast and Gold Coast elite. That is the Democracy they yearn for with no concern for the middle class or the middle of America. For the Party that always claimed they stood for the little guy, they certainly seem comfortable with their new association with the rich and famous.
Trump was not a big or broad enough target. Hillary set the parameters in 2016 when she included all Republicans in her “Basket of Deplorables.” Some think that may have cost her the election, but it endeared her to her base. You can say that Hillary is a lousy candidate and a miserable manipulative human being, but she is brilliant and knows how to please her followers. That was her goal. Joe took a page from Hillary’s playbook for the midterms and created the Mega MAGAs. He may have stumbled with the phrase and occasionally mispronounced it, but it didn’t matter. The Left loved it, and it worked. Sad, very sad.
Trump has already declared for 2024. Biden has too, but most recognize this will never happen. Trump is not getting the attention I envisioned when he committed. This shun may be due to a new villain on the Democrat list. Elon Musk, a brilliant innovator and darling of the Left with the Tesla, space travel, Space Link, and tunnel-building technology, dared to cross the line by buying Twitter and vowing to return it to its uncensored roots. This man scares the hell out of Democrats. He will reveal the algorithms and the internal memos regarding what and how to censor specific stories that would benefit Democrats. He is going to take us into the sausage factory.
Celebrities are going apoplectic. The White House, specifically Karine Jeanne-Pierre, says they are keeping a close eye on Twitter and will intercede if they get out of line. Out of line means transparent. A transparent Twitter is the latest and most significant threat to Democracy. You can see the panic in their actions and words. The wealthiest man in the world should not have a hand on a social platform. The Justice Department is looking into Musk’s ties with foreign governments. Biden’s ties are not an issue to National Security, but Musk’s are.
The Left had no problem with the Hunter Biden capers being suppressed in 2020. They had no problem with a sitting President being banned from Social platforms. They had no issue with stories about voting irregularities being hushed by msm. Democrats had no concern about the Justice Department and FBI being weaponized against parents who wanted involvement in their children’s education. These hypocrites wish for a controlled flow of information. They want no light shined on the education system that has brainwashed children for decades. These are the things that will kill Democracy. The Left wants Democracy replaced with a controlled, filtered flow of information to the people. When you pull down the shades and prevent the light of transparency, you will bring about a quick death to Democracy. It is pretty clear that this is the plan of the Left. Will the country sit back and let this happen? Only time and the future of our country will tell.
