I was 100 percent certain that the voters were smart enough to reward Donald Trump for all he’s done, but I was wrong.
Here’s why the Republicans lost the House. It took me a while to figure it out.
Two years was not long enough to undo the brainwashing of the past fifty years. Americans have been conditioned to rebel against any form of order. At the heart of leftism is hatred of Daddy. Since leftists control the press and our entertainment industries, they have made Americans associate success with Daddy telling them what to do.
This is why Americans have embraced failure for decades. Since the Democrats said in plain language that they would stop Trump’s agenda, Americans without question chose failure over success.
The good news is that this was a knee-jerk choice, a tribal tradition. The voters only half-heartedly chose failure, which is why the Republicans didn’t lose the Senate. A large number of Americans have thrown off their conditioning, but 2017 and 2018 were a false start. Not enough Americans have changed.
We’re going to have a lot of backsliding. I overestimated the average voter’s desire for improvement. It reminds me of a news story I saw from 2002. The reporter was interviewing Afghans, who are traditionally xenophobic. A young man said—without understanding the contradiction—that he was grateful for the continuing help from all the foreigners, and he wanted them to immediately leave his country.
Americans are grateful for everything Trump has done, but like that primitive, tribal Afghan, they had to vote Democratic because the voters have always handed the sitting president a defeat in the first midterms. We weren’t ready to defy history. That would require the ability to see the big picture, understand cause and effect, and throw off the mental chains. READ MORE:
