I’ve said before that the Democrats’ looking to ram impeachment down our throats reminds me of their 2009/10 push for Obamacare. And now the pushback against impeachment is starting to feel like the Tea Party 2.0.
Have you noticed?
Despite growing opposition to impeachment, despite being inundated with constituent phone calls opposing it, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat leadership are marching full-steam ahead and forcing every so-called “moderate” Democrat to fall in line behind them.
Once again we are witnessing the House Democrats’ condescension and indifference for their constituents. It really is like 2010 all over again.
I saw on Twitter yesterday video of Michigan Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin getting booed and shouted down by her constituents as she attempted to justify voting in favor of these two ridiculous articles of impeachment.
And, boy, did it remind me of the Tea Party protests at townhalls in 2009 and 2010.
Interesting isn’t it?
Every time Nancy Pelosi is entrusted with the Speakership, her caucus ends up facing the wrath of their constituents back home.
And, just as Nancy ignored the Tea Party in 2010, she will ignore this 2020 version as well.
Pelosi is on a mission to remove the word “Representatives” from the House of Representatives.
No doubt she will successfully strong-arm the vulnerable Democrats into following her off the impeachment cliff just as she succeeded in dragging them over the Obamacare cliff in 2010.
But it’s Newton’s third law. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
You’d think the Party of Science would understand that. But again and again they prove incapable.
The equal and opposite reaction to the Democrats ramming Obamacare through was the Tea Party movement and the 2010 Midterm blow-out.
And it’s all happening again.
As I said back in October, “Nancy and Schiff, with a heavy assist from the news media, are trying to sway public opinion away from President Trump and toward impeachment.”
But that didn’t happen. In fact, the polar opposite happened. The more the Democrats forced this issue, the less voters supported it.
Yet, despite public disapproval, once again — as she did with Obamacare — Nancy pushes forward.
And if there’s one thing voters despise it’s representatives who ignore the very people they’re supposed to represent.
The fact is, every single time the Democrats are given power they abuse it. Every single time they are in the majority, they crap all over the consent of the governed.
For the life of me I don’t understand why voters keep falling for it.
You’d think after what happened with Obamacare, voters would know not to entrust the Democrats with the House.
Or the Senate.
Or the White House.
I’m sure in 2018, many voters thought, “But this Democrat House candidate is a moderate. She’s promising to work across the aisle to get things done!”
But the truth is an entirely different thing.
When Democrats go to Washington they answer, not to their constituents, but to the entrenched, deep-blue, safe-seat party leadership.
Their only job is to support whatever insane policies the radical, far-Left Democrat leadership pushes.
And what voters from swing districts learn all too late is, though they might be voting for a “moderate,” who they’re really empowering are Democrat leaders they would never in their lives vote for.
Elissa Slotkin is not the Representative of Michigan’s 8th District. Nancy Pelosi is.
Anthony Brindisi is not the Representative of New York’s 22nd District. Nancy Pelosi is.
Conor Lamb is not the Representative of Pennsylvania’s 17th District. Nancy Pelosi is.
In fact, every single Democrat in the House of Representatives have ceded their districts to Nancy Pelosi and the radical, safe-seat Democrat leadership. Just like they did in 2009.
I think this is what Jeff Van Drew realized. It was Nancy, not he who was representing New Jersey’s 2nd District. And the only way to change that is to switch parties.
As I said before, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, Waters – none of these people are going to be defeated in 2020. Their seats are so safe they might as well have lifetime appointments. The only way to ensure they are deprived of power is to vote out every Democrat House member who is not from a deep-blue district.
There is no such thing as a moderate Democrat. Sure, they might start that way. But once a so-called “moderate” is elected, it is Nancy Pelosi and her cabal of safe-seat Leftists who call the shots.
Voters may have forgotten what prompted the Tea Party movement of 2010. But thanks to Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler, they’re getting a big old reminder.
Don’t let up. Vote these people out. Because they aren’t your representatives. Nancy is.
And in 2020, just like 2010, you have the power to change that.
