The 2022 elections will be a politically earthshattering affair. They will set the stage for what happens two years later when Americans elect a new president.
History tells us that the presidential party in power usually loses congressional seats during off year elections. Joe Biden’s performance should ensure that Democrats will suffer in the House and probably the Senate. After the 2024 elections, the entire government may once again be in the hands of conservatives. The progressive experiment will then be declared a failure and pols like AOC, Sanders and Pelosi will be relegated to the backbenches in the House and Senate.
The immigration tragedy on the southern border, the clumsy and deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan, bumbling of COVID and related disease responses, relations with China and Russia, the economy, inflation and other issues are wreaking havoc in presidential opinion polls. And rightly so. Democrats are shunning the president’s support in their local elections, the first sign of abandonment by politicians on the run.
Democrats are splintered ranging from very liberal to radical liberal. Only Manchin and Sinema in the Senate have shown courage by resisting entitlement increases and spending that will exacerbate inflationary pressures. America is feeling the effect of higher prices across the board right now. The party in power always pays the price for economic strife.
For some reason, Biden continues to support efforts to relax sanctions on Iran. This is the most militarily preposterous action imaginable. Iran is our deadly enemy, and it wants to develop nuclear weapons. It is mad to give the ayatollah’s such a deadly weapon. They will use it to intimidate any country or party that is not Shiite. A third World War becomes a realistic concern with a nuclear Iran.
China and Russia became more aggressive with the arrival of Biden and the Democrats. They have no fear of our military might with the current president as commander-in-chief. China is expanding its influence across the globe, but most notably in the South China Sea and neighboring areas. Russia is preparing to invade Ukraine. Thousands of soldiers are mustering along the common border of Russia and Ukraine.
The continuing movement to the left by the Biden administration is really beginning to irritate Americans. Persistent support of violent mob protest, defunding police, high crime rates, rioting in the name of income inequality are beginning to erode support of Democrats. Law and order will be an important issue when Democrat candidates debate Republican candidates prior to the midterm elections.
The blow back is so dire for the liberal crowd that even Donald Trump is rallying, God help us. His reemergence is the only hope for Democrats. Let’s hope Trump is unable to muster any support, as his presence will drive voters away from Republican candidates.
