Quick Thought: We Cannot Survive Eight More Years of a Democrat in the White House

Our Republican House and Senate has already said that they will not accomplish anything with a Democrat President. I think that’s cowardice, but I take them at their word (and on their record). Eight more years of a Democrat President would mean eight more meaningless years of a Republican House and Senate, should they keep both Houses.

That means eight more years of debt increases, eight more years of spending increases, and eight more years of allowing the bureaucracy to legislate on their behalf.

Whatever happens in Iowa and whoever wins the Republican Nomination, there is one thing that is universally true: if the Republicans don’t win the White House it doesn’t matter who’s in the Congress.

I’ve never believed in “just vote Republican”. That notwithstanding, I also cannot imagine eight more years of Democrat Rule.

I am trying desperately to remember that when this primary is all over, we must recall that we’re all on the same team – be it Trump, Jeb!, Rubio, Paul, Kasich, or Cruz. The Republicans in Congress will not act with a Democrat in the White House. Period.

    Think back to the last Republican in the White House, 2001-2008. Could we survive 8 more years of that? No.

    Let’s quit pretending.

    • That’s one side of the coin. The other side is that the Democrats are far worse. The goal must be to 1. Defeat Democrats and stave off socialism. 2. Reform the Republican Party, destroy Corporatism and corruption. 3. Take a leadership or activist role in our local government, holding local officials accountable. That’s the playbook. If you have a more reasonable course of action, I’d like to hear it.

        I am not sure 2 is possible. I have my doubts.

        I believe a return to Biblical principles is just as achievable as your 2. And, far more effective at solving our problems.

        • Biblical principles should be up there too. I just can’t conceive not trying.
