Is the 2020 Election the Last Stand in Preserving Our Republic?

God Bless America, Land that I Love, Stand beside her and guide her, thru the night, with a Light from above...

Growing Support for the Republican Party

Why would New Jerseyans brave the cold of a January night in order to get their foot in the door of a Trump rally?

Why did Rep. Jeff Van Drew (NJ) switch sides?

Why have Floridians and Texans camped out in the hot summer sun for the same reason Pennsylvanians and New Jerseyans will brave the cold of winter?

Why are so many black Americans leaving the Democratic Party behind and not only becoming more active in politics but becoming much more vocal than in years past?

Why would a liberal Democrat, Professor Alan Dershowitz, be standing shoulder to shoulder with President Trump's defense team?

Why would a staunch conservative, who just four short years ago was definitely not singing the praises of Donald J. Trump, be singing such a different tune now?

Well, I can and have explained that last question, and will attempt to take a wild stab at the rest:

Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren recently said that if she becomes President, she will work to undo and do away with the *Electoral College. When someone, not just anyone, but a person running to be the President of the United States of America, makes such a remark, they are basically saying; forget you middle America, get lost flyover States, if I have a choice, you no longer have a voice. Forget all of you who prefer to live your lives in wide open spaces, outside of tall city buildings in overcrowded, group think type places, this mindset doesn't think you, deserve a say.

{*see more on the Electoral College below}

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders, a never-employed, self-avowed socialist for his entire political life, has recently had to stop condemning millionaires, for you see, somehow, along the way, he himself, has become one. He still rants and rages against the man with the money, but now...it is limited to billionaires. A Sanders Administration, has me and many others, seeing visions of what once was; the demise of the celebrated American entrepreneurial spirit, of living your American dream, of setting goals, learning a trade, studying hard and working tirelessly to seeing them through.

Joe Biden

Joe Biden who seemed to have a little substance going for him in year's past, can't seem to find his path, doesn't know what he believes from one day to the next, can't keep things straight in his head. He does, in fact, support socialism or does he? Depends on the day, the crowd and yet, he, Joe Biden, is considered a leader among leaders, in today's Democratic Party. In fact, he is leading in the polls, as I do a quick look-see.

Pete Buttigieg

Pete Buttigieg couldn't budge a degree with his stance on abortion, when a fellow Democrat asked him if there's a place, under the tent, for pro-life democrats like her, which she insisted, are many. Mayor Pete, couldn't meet her halfway, a part of the way, nor slightly pivot and judging by his body language...he didn't even want to give her the time of day.

So, I guess the answer to her question, which he never gave, is no ma'am there isn't a place for you under the tent.

Holding the Line

Our Republic is being flanked from all directions, many people have realized it for a long time, many are beginning to realize, for the first time, that not everyone sees the United States as they see it and that not all love this country as they do.

They are beginning to understand that many elected officials that they may have once believed in, as well as the party they once believed in, are not working for them and do not have their best interest at heart.

The things which define us, which define this country...are on the line!

Waiting for Trump in Houston

Waiting for Trump in Houston

The Socialist, Leftist, Progressive Democratic Party

This crop of Democratic candidates aren't telling us how they can do a better job than President Trump is doing, because they can't and they know it.

But that's not the point, the point is...they don't care to!

They do not like being limited by our form of government, via the U.S. Constitution.

They are telling us, maybe not all as boldly as Bernie, but with their actions, their vision, their philosophy...they are socialists, or at the very least, they rarely give lip service to capitalism.

Why are they more bold and brazen about it today?

Do they feel as if they've won enough of our youth over, through media, through education (or lack of)?

Do their closest comrades and confidants have their ear and tell them it is time?

Why Are These Changes Happening?

Is it because we have a popular sitting President, Donald J. Trump, that has managed to hold on to his American values? He loves the United States of America just as much as we do. He has shown us and them that our form of government works just fine....for the people!

They can't argue the economy or the effect that Trump has had both here and abroad, as a strong leader, seeing it through, getting it done, staying true to his constituency. Foreign leaders, for the most part, like President Trump—they've said so! Many, as has always been the case, seek to emulate us...because we have always, and with a Trump Administration, we continue to, uniquely stand apart. We do not stand apart, attract those who want to be like us, because we got it wrong nearly 250 years ago, but rather because we got it very right!

The time was put in because history already had a story to tell about various forms of government. The Founders knew this. They knew what worked, what didn't work and once written, they didn't stop there. Those things which needed tweaking or amending were resolved. They did not take their role lightly and knew that a form of government, of the People, would have to be worded to withstand the test of time.

Why Now?

How we came to be, what sets us apart, what drives us, why so many from many different parts of the world seek us out, isn't just a great story, it is what defines us. Today, no matter that capitalism, via a president that understands it, has brought us an economy which is currently on fire...in a good way!

No matter that unemployment is virtually extinct (for those seeking employment) Every small business in my area, either by word of mouth or a sign out front are advertising, help wanted!

No matter that new job creation, via manufacturing jobs, are igniting small-town economies and bringing them back all across the country and it's not just blue-collar jobs, everyone is hiring...across the fruited plain. No matter that handshakes are taking place regularly with leaders from all around the world...

The opposition wants no part of anything that is happening, it is not what defines them. That's why now!

Have you had a chance to think about it, while I took a stab?

"The opposition wants no part of what is happening, that is not what defines them."

I am not sure how to define the Democratic Party of today (after their behavior at the SOTU last night)

1) Too far gone, passed the point of no return?

2) A bunch of brats, following the lead of the head brat, Nancy Pelosi? (that pathetic ripping up of the President's speech, let us know all we need to know about that woman!)

3) They've forgotten how to be or don't care to be, a part of what it means to be an American?

I don't know what's going through their minds, but I am so proud of this Country and so very proud of our President.

God Bless America!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on January 31, 2020:

Thanks Shannon, I think it is fair to say that a blue collar article was transformed into a white collar article.

But, I am bringing Lynryrd Skynyrd back, in my next article....already in progress! ;)

It is never too late to comment!

Shannon Henry from Texas on January 31, 2020:

Sorry, Angie. I didn't make it back to finish reading before it got snipped and edited and such. So I can't answer your questions. But congratulations on making it to Soapboxie! Better late than never commenting, I hope.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on January 31, 2020:

My article has been edited. Lynyrd Skynyrd is out, along with parts and pieces that I obviously felt, belonged...not sure how I feel about it yet.

Thoughts?

Do those of you that commented before, feel as if it is as impactful as it was?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on January 29, 2020:

I hear ya, I like those two words too.

I will accept positive feedback on anything I write, all day long, it is appreciated!

I can handle the negative too....but, it won't go unchallenged! ;)

Suzie from Carson City on January 29, 2020:

LOL!! My favorite 2 words of ALL time....."You're Right!"....LOL

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on January 29, 2020:

You're right! I am happy to do my part in holding the line and will leave it there.

Suzie from Carson City on January 29, 2020:

"Modesty" is nice and has it's place & time. Not here, not now..

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on January 29, 2020:

Good morning Paula, I am so glad to be a part of your morning!

I don't know about "counterparts" and all that but....Thank you!!

Suzie from Carson City on January 29, 2020:

Angie....Morning is the perfect time for me to read your newest articles. Your wisdom, truth & common sense, combined with your awesome writing skills,kick-start anyone's day! You, me & my coffee, girlfriend, refresh my spirit and ease the pressures of dealing with the ignorance of the left. As they foolishly expose themselves as the single-most clueless group of desperate morons, they continue to set themselves up for inevitable FAILURE.

There's not much left to do, but sit back and watch, as informed, determined, patriotic Americans, who love our country & protect it's constitution, stampede the whole rotten lot of them and PREVAIL!

Rock Star,Pam Bondi......meet your counterpart....our own Angie!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on January 29, 2020:

Good morning T,

Yes, so proud of Florida's very own, Pam Bondi.

She laid out the case against the Bidens, so well ...oh but wait, this isn't about the Bidens, an Obama White House and corruption, is it?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on January 29, 2020:

Good morning Vivian, thank you!

I did see the clip of Lemon and company at CNN, they are as clueless and pathetic, as those they endorse.

Actually, you have given me an idea.

I'd like to DEDICATE this HUB to Don Lemon & Friends over at CNN (get a clue, some of you laugh, while the rest of us do!)

Always nice to hear from you Vivian...I need to read your latest.

The Logician from now on on January 29, 2020:

AB you mention Biden

Watch this and you’ll know why Obama chose him for VP. Honor among thieves?

https://youtu.be/6kqmojRRqB0

How can anyone with the ability to reason not see how corrupt Biden and the Obama administration are after listening to Pam?

Vivian Coblentz on January 29, 2020:

A B,

This is an awesome rally cry! Those of us who have been paying attention have watched the abuse of power from these career politicians for years and seen America slowly sinking. Before liberals could finish Her off, Trump intervened! His blunt exposure of the corruption and his attempt to right the ship have put us back on course. The hounds of hell are in a tailspin and showing their true colors. They claim to "defend' the Constitution why they give it death blows at every opportunity--just like Warren's promise to eliminate the Electoral College, like you mentioned. Every "crime" they accuse Trump of, they have been doing themselves, only far worse! It's time for people to wake up! Don Lemon's panel where Trump supporters were mocked as "credulous rubes" who speak with Southern accents and don't know math, geography, or spelling is a picture of how the Leftist elites hold the rest of the country in complete disdain. I hardly think anyone who hurls such insults at the American public will have our best interests at heart in office! You are right--we need to hold the line!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on January 28, 2020:

Agreed Jackie, it has been non-stop, what has been done to this man.

I don't think you need to worry, the people of America aren't having it, they've had their fill, that's evident.

Good to hear from you

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on January 28, 2020:

God help us if the liberals get by with this travesty, this unconstitutional ploy against not only our president but all of us who elected him. Against America.

They hate us too and will turn on us as soon as they get him. If we allow that to happen.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on January 28, 2020:

Ya'll are just loving a double dose of Skynyrd! ;)

Thanks guys, you are both so appreciated!

Greg Schweizer from Corona, California. on January 28, 2020:

AB, I love you for everything I have ever read from you and this article tops the list. Love it.

The Logician from now on on January 28, 2020:

AB all I can say is WOW! This article deserves an hp Pulitzer! You always hit the nail on the head but this time you drove it through the board and out the other side!

Keep telling it like it is. What you just did is that and more, it’s a work of art!

Let nobody ever suggest your writing talent is not top notch!
