The American Left Goes Bolshevik

I am delighted that so many Democrats have decided to absent themselves from President-elect Trump and Vice-President-elect Pence’s inauguration this coming Friday.

Democrats claim that Trump-Pence are illegitimate because of Russian interference in the election. But let’s not forget that these same people claimed that President George Bush was illegitimate because of, um, hanging chads.

The simple truth is Democrats believe that any elected Republican is illegitimate. Like the Bolsheviks, Democrats believe that any ideology other than their own is a false consciousness that must be purged.

I hope that not a single Democrat shows up for the inauguration. In this way the American people will see that Democrats are totalitarians, that Democrats have no respect for the Constitution. The absence of Democrats at the peaceful handing over of power will drive home the fact that Democrats hold in contempt the electoral progress.

Let the Hollywood elite continue producing their dopey protest videos. They will reap what they sow at the box office. And as Hollywood self-righteously poses, the American people will be fully convinced that voting for Trump-Pence was the correct choice. Remember how Hollywood star power helped Hillary? The fact is a Hollywood endorsement is the kiss of death with millions of Americans.

Trump will only have to do five things to be reelected: Repeal and replace Obamacare, enforce immigration laws, reform the broken tax system, rebuild our military, and add jobs. With Trump’s cabinet picks he seems to be well on his way to achieving these goals.

It will be as if Obama’s policies, his pen and phone, never existed.

So: let’s all hope that the Democrats continue with their childish posturing. The rest of America—the Deplorables—will move on with the business of making common sense policy. And the Democrat party will become a permanent minority, marginalized to coastal enclaves. And perhaps like their Democrat ancestors they will secede from the Union.

    Just read this morning:

    >>>”Besides Lewis, nearly 60 other House Democrats have now said they will boycott Trump’s inauguration, with the number sharply increasing in the wake of Lewis’s decision.
    >>>Trump told Fox News that he isn’t worried about the no-shows but hopes the members of Congress not attending will turn the tickets back into him so that there is more room for his supporters.<<<<

    A practical, reasonable response. Not even anything there for democrats to get their knickers in a twist about. Opposite of sad!

    Isn’t his name Mike PPP…Pence? as in, Presidential?

    What a shame, the Inauguration won’t be any fun without them there. Gee, in fact, if they aren’t going to be there, let’s call the whole thing off!

    Really, those tweets make PE Trump truly “d”emocratic: he’s talking directly to, and with, the people. Making America a small town again, where you can just sort of walk right into the president’s office and speak your mind.

      Thanks for the Pence correction. That’s what I get for writing quickly before an important meeting.

    However, unlike many who voted for the Tourette’s Tweeting Donald, I am becoming more and more forgiving of that particular disability in Mr. Trump.
    No one seems to notice that his mad Tweets and his Administrative picks and goals appear to bear no relation to each other.
    I am most optimistic that the Donald may just succeed in all of those fine goals stated.
    This is good.

    We just survived the election from hell, and you have to bring up re-election?!

    I think Trump should do all he can during this term, then bow out in favor of Pence. Or we can have the election we should have had in 2016 with the candidates that would have done just as well without the headaches.

    I think that we may need to amend the Constitution to provide for a single six-year term, so we don’t have to listen to drivel about re-election every time we turn around.

      A single presidential term would make the entire term — as opposed to just the last 4 years — into a lame duck term with nothing holding back a maniac president. We know how bad that can get from the last 4 years.
      But if we’re talking term limits, the least we could ask for is to get them for Congress. And federal judges, for that matter. Also, no pay raises and no pensions; pensions for elected officials are an abomination.
      Finally, I would like to see an amendment that forbids office holders from either owning or being protected by personal arms that the public at large in their place of residence and their place of office are not allowed to possess and use. Call it the “Equal Protection Amendment”.

        I agree with you regarding term limits for Congress.

        As for a single six-year term for President, I wonder what your readers would think about a proposal Larry Sabato made in the book “A More Perfect Constitution.” The idea would be that the presidential term would be increased from four to six years, and after five years there would be a referendum on the President (should he decide to submit himself to the voters). The question would be “Should this President be granted a full eight years?” If the voters approve, the president would serve two more years after the sixth year (equivalent to the current practice of re-election to a second term). If not, the president’s term ends after six years. The terms of the House and Senate would be adjusted to accommodate the change in the president’s term so that the terms of all of them would be coordinated.

        I suppose that the current situation and the one should the president be limited to a single six-year term are a double-edged sword. Every president will probably be characterized as a “maniac” by their opposition. I think I would be willing to take a chance if we were assured that after six years, the “maniac” was gone!

          The six-year presidential term. Exhuming an ancient idea from its well-deserved resting place. As for the “brilliant” ideas of acamedicians, I think we’ve had enough of that for a while. This whole election was about not being told what to do by intellectuals with their heads in the clouds. We exile these impaired people to the campuses for a reason — so they’ll do less damage. (Stole that from Althouse.)

      We don’t want boring Pence. We want Trump. That’s why we elected him. Why should he bow out? B/c Sheldan doesn’t like him? Gosh.

    If Trump does the first four things, the fifth will happen.
