Stand Up for America

“Kavanaugh Has Been Confirmed—We Republicans Can ‘Stand Down’ Now, Right?  Absolutely Not!, and Here’s Why

Douglas Sanders

I have explained in previous posts why this mid-term election is the most important in our life time.  The stakes could not be higher.  If the Dems take the House, impeachment of Trump AND NOW Kavanaugh will occur.  All of the next two years will be filled with non-sensical theatrics which will greatly slow—if not halt—Trump’s “Make America Great” agenda.  He will be relegated to signing Executive Orders, which can easily be reversed by any future President. If the Dems take the Senate, confirmation of good conservative federal judges who apply the law, rather than create it, will completely come to an end.  But there is even more at stake. 

         Since the 2016 Presidential election, the leadership of the Democrat Party has shifted radically and violently to the Left.  No longer are the Democrats focused on trying to win elections based on policy arguments and what is best for our Country. Rather their focus is on taking back power through ANY MEANS.  I posted on our LCRP Facebook page a video wherein Newt Gingrich accurately describes the Democrats’ new radical philosophy as “Rule or Ruin.”  If you have not watched it yet, please do so now.  A few examples of this destructive philosophy in action are:

  1. Kavanaugh’s Confirmation Process: The entire Nation saw the brutal, unseemly, and anti-due process “Rule or Ruin” principle in action with the Democrats’ tactics during the confirmation process.  Their goal, of course, was to deny any conservative Trump nominee from taking Justice Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court.  (As we know, the Democrats often turn to liberal judges to create law from the bench because they cannot get such laws passed through the legislative process.)  Based solely on uncorroborated accusations, the Democrats systematically destroyed Judge Kavanaugh’s hard-earned reputation for level-handed jurisprudence, integrity and good moral stature.  This was nothing more than modern-day McCarthyism—one of the darkest chapters in America’s history.  Yet, it is the new Democrat playbook.  America, beware!
  2. Sanctuary Cities and Open Borders: Every country in the world is defined geographically by, and its sovereignty is largely based on, its borders.  In their quest for power, the Democrats are actively seeking the entry of as many illegals as possible with the primary goal of getting them to vote Democrat.  The fact that there are laws in place in the United States (like every other country in the World) which require immigrants who wish to enter our country and continue to live here to do so legally, means nothing to the Democrat leadership. The same goes with flagrantly violating federal law by shielding illegals from deportation through Sanctuary Cities. The fact that such policies will ultimately ruin America means nothing to the Democrats—it’s Rule or Ruin.
  3. Impeachment of Trump and Kavanaugh: Trump is doing exactly what he said he would do when he ran for office—Making America Great Again.  Tremendous economy; lowest unemployment in 40 years; lowest Hispanic and Black unemployment in history; new respect from our allies and enemies alike; strong and confident military—well, you get the picture.  It is just the opposite of what we had under Democrat rule and the Democrats, through their Rule or Ruin philosophy, are doing anything and everything to not just undermine, but to destroy Trump.  They have failed with the Deep State, they have failed with the Mueller probe and now their effort will be to impeach Trump and tie his hands for the next two years.  They have also vowed to do the same with Kavanaugh.  Under the Democrats’ Rule or Ruin playbook, Kavanaugh must be removed from the Supreme Court so it is no longer conservative regardless of the tactics to be employed.


         In summary, Judge Kavanaugh was confirmed, but we must fight on to preserve America for generations to come.  Now is not the time to become complacent and Stand Down.  More than ever, now is the time to STAND UP for the America that we love.  VOTE!!!!
