PREPARE: Both Sides Will Learn The Worst Lessons From Tomorrow's Election

The Daily Wire
Ben Shapiro
November 5, 2018

excerpt:

No matter which party triumphs in tomorrow’s midterm elections, we’re likely to learn the wrong lessons. That’s because our political polarization is so strong that we’re no longer arguing over policy differences – we’re arguing over whether the other side is even worthy of having a discussion. The answer, from both sides, seems to be no.

Let’s assume the Democrats win big tomorrow. That win will be due to a few factors: the historical pressures running against incumbent parties; the toxicity of President Trump; a media climate dedicated in extraordinary fashion to the Democratic agenda. But that’s not what Democrats are likely to believe.

They’re likely to believe that they won based on a radical political agenda – Medicare for all, free college education, and higher taxes. This will drive them to ever more extreme approaches to policy, all of which will be far outside the scope of any electoral mandate. President Obama approached his 2008 win not as a victory for his then-unifying brand of politics, but as a victory for his far-Left progressivism; Democrats will do the same.

Democrats are also likely to believe they won because they are servants of light in a fight against bigotry and oppression. This has been the main thrust of their campaign, after all: Donald Trump as overarching threat to the republic, backed by his craven minions in the Republican Party. This means Democrats will double down on their othering of Republicans and moderates – all of whom, in their viewpoint, have become untouchable worshippers of Trumpian Evil. After all, they spent the last election cycle ripping those people, and won. So othering via ugly identity politics must be a viable political strategy.

Meanwhile, if Republicans win, they’re unlikely to attribute that victory to the real factors: a historically terrific economy, as well as a historically disconnected Democratic Party.

I know Ben was a nevertrumper, but I cannot disagree with most of his forecast.

Probably the biggest single factor. If the media were actually unbiased, there would be no Democrat anywhere getting elected to so much as dogcatcher.

Sorry Trump does not drive out the worst in human behavior. What his actions are doing is creating insanity in the DNC because he's doing what other Republican's have PROMISED but failed to do once they won. That is rolling back the insanity. What usually happens is the DNC wins and pushes us to slavery. When the RNC wins they move us there at a slower rate. Trump is ripping up their rules, laws and requirements and setting them back years.

That's why they are acting like this. They always were insane. It's just becoming obvious now.

Wow. President Trump, I find, is not the bully that the left is portraying him as. I don't agree with everything about him as he, like all of us, isn't a perfect guy, but man is he doing a good job. My point is it is making me now wonder what his greatest skill is, being a leader or ticking off the left. Maybe it is both. Not even GW Bush didn't have those skills.

I have waited most of my life for a Republican who would fight back. Ronald Reagan was a fighter with an added sense of humor which worked for him. I suspect Reagan would be more aggressive in today's political arena.

Until the jackass party is beaten into submission the President must continue to bring down the hammer. At some point we can hope sanity returns to the bitter clingers to power but if not let em learn to love a good beating.

When you get em on the run it's slobber knocker time.
