The Presidential elections of 2024 are going to be immensely important on several fronts. For one, what will the American people tell us with that election will have tremendous impact on our democracy if we select authoritarian figures who are willing to weaken our democracy or ban books. For two, the gun violence and the abortion rights issues have become a rallying cry for liberals among the largest voting bloc. Has America reached a breaking point when it comes to the aggressive and extreme conservatism, chipping away at the rights of every American?
We will know in 2024 as the culture wars, the spread of gun violence killing our children in schools, and religious fanatics imposing their will on women by legislating drastic laws to limit their freedom, whether a voting undercurrent is in the making to seismically return the country to where it was before Donald Trump and his ilk.
Has America reached the breaking point? We will get an answer to this question in 2024. Just 18 months from now.
Unlike liberalism, conservatism is invasive, demanding, and persistently meddlesome in our private lives.
MORE TO CONSERVATISM THAN AN IDEOLOGY
In an article, The Atlantic published dealing with GOP dismal future, the journalist Ronald Brownstein writes:
We are already witnessing some major shifts in states like Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona.
There is more to conservative ideology than just a self-expression of voters. Unlike liberalism, conservatism is invasive, demanding, and persistently meddlesome in our private lives.
While this may sit well with baby boomers (Americans born before 1964), it turns off the more liberal younger generation of voters, whose future impact on the results of 2024 should never be dismissed.
We believe the results of 2024 are going to shock everyone, the least of whom are Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis, whose heads are still buried in the sand.
ABORTION AND GUN VIOLENCE ARE GAME CHANGERS
In 2020, over 60% of voters exercised their rights to vote, which was one of the highest % in three decades. This leaves approximately 40% of voters on the sidelines, and since most of these voters tend to be young, the gun violence in schools and the abortion issue are going to galvanize the vote sitters in 2024.
So how does Gov. Ron DeSantis figure he could win by banning books, passing laws to conceal and carry weapons without a permit, and pass a six-week abortion laws? This might explain why some of the biggest donors in the GOP are abandoning him.
DeSantis has embraced a losing strategy just because he wants to ram down our throat his extreme conservatism. Like we said, there is more to conservatism than an ideology. It’s a war against the people. Just like medieval kings imposed their swords on their realm.
We believe America has reached a breaking point. We believe the results of 2024 are going to shock everyone, the least of whom are Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis, whose heads are still buried in the sand.
