Democrats Built a Garden, and Trump is the Wrecking Ball!
I recently went to a movie with my grandson to see “Peter Rabbit,” a fun film, well done. Peter engages in his epic battle with Mr. McGregor in the Garden. But the story is really all about access to free stuff, no need for trivial concerns like property rights, or payment for work done, but all in for animal rights! No idea what the reviews are, but the movie brought the past decade of actions and current plight of the Democratic party to mind. (Segue alert!)
Consider the Obama era, when Democrats held the national stage, offering grandiose ideas of their vision of a more perfect American society. Working within the four secure walls of their Garden, composed of:
Democrats gave us their vision of America’s Garden:
And the Democrats looked upon their Garden of works and pronounced it good! Needless to say, every loyal Democrat would deny all of the above characterizations, reject anything that would cast their politics in a negative light, and would likely attack and demonize anyone for making such comments!
Over the past decade Democrats created and controlled their own reality within the secure walls of their beliefs, never questioning whether the country shared their commitments. As we approached the 2016 elections, apparently the “walls” were so thick that no ideas or alternate views from outside the walls ever clouded their vision or troubled their world view. The Garden was secure.
The Democrats were so confident of their world view and
support of the people that they selected a candidate from
their roster of Identity Politics pols, Hillary Clinton, who,
if elected, would guarantee the Garden would be protected
Then Donald Trump happened! The four secure walls and the
Garden of the Democrat/Liberal world are facing the wrecking
ball, steadily broken and dismantled. The policy positions
noted are being reversed or deleted, brick by brick, ripped up
plant by plant, weed by weed. The world of the Democrats has
been laid flat for all to see from outside those walls where so
many Americans dwell, many of whom are deeply troubled by
the direction of the country set by Democrats over the past decade.
So Democrats, once complacent within the confines of their “Garden,” have been cast out of the Garden and have quickly descended into total chaos since the election of 2016.
The full-throated disorder and chaos of the party is on display every day, such as:
The party is now lost in the wilderness of its liberal, leftist ideology.
There is no evidence the party is developing positive messages for
growth, national security, jobs or any domestic program that makes
life in America better. So what steps will the party take to restore
their vision of order, push back against the chaos and re-build a
national party? The new, or final (?) chapter, of the Democratic
Party will be written over the next two election cycles.
WooHoo! Can’t wait for the sequel of the 2016 Election!
