Conservative thinking is challenged, derided, sneered at, condemned… from the moment it appears. When WE do our thinking and our formulations of potential solutions, WE have to PRE-consider the inevitable tsunami of accusations of Racism! Sexism! This-o-phobia! That-o-phobia! You hate children! You hate women! Etc., etc., etc…
When the Left proposes something, they think that the proposal is perfect and complete from the moment of its birth! It requires no further adjustments or tweaking or re-thinking… because all the loud voices in the media and academia and Hollywood and pop culture tell them so.

Conservatives are telling everyone, and themselves, that the Left is just okay with losing the Presidency, what they don’t want is to lose significantly in the down-ballot races. This is why they’ve maneuvered to get Bernie Sanders out of the race. They hypothesize further that with Sanders in the race, the Democrats were convinced they’d lose heavily everywhere across the country.
This is almost all incorrect.
It’s hard to put into words the catastrophe the Democrats were envisioning — before the coronavirus, that is.
Democrats were envisioning the very real possibility that Trump wins re-election and that the doddering Ginsburg and Breyer would leave their posts on the Supreme Court, unable to make it through four more long years of Trump. Both Associate Justices are ancient, but both are perfectly predictably left-wing in all the positions they take on the Court. That means that “Conservatives” (really: Constitutionalists) hold an extremely tenuous 5-4 margin on the court today (Roberts-Alito-Thomas-Kavanaugh-Gorsuch vs. Sotomayor-Kagen-Breyer-Ginsburg).

France is headed toward a very bad cliff, and Melenchon would lock the steering wheel in place, and step on the gas. Le Pen would lock the steering wheel in the place and not step on the gas quite as hard. That’s the difference between the two. Continue reading France’s Horrible Choice
