I’m so sick and tired of pretending any of this makes sense, Save Jerseyans.
Let’s get it out of the way up front: yes, that Minneapolis officer 100% deserves to be prosecuted for murder. No one I’ve spoken to, right or left, disagrees. Moving on…
Here’s an uncomfortable truth for some of you: the primary players in the current national televised drama are people who (1) religiously vote for Democrats.
Some of them
(2) are destroying Democrat-run small businesses
(3) in places governed and represented FOR GENERATIONS by Democrats
(4) to “protest” the behavior of police departments directly overseen by… you guessed it… Democrats.
“The Republican president is the one who needs to go in November”?
Okay. Interesting theory. Very interesting.
Or maybe – just maybe (hear me out on this crazy idea) – Americans living in cities should stop reflexively voting for Democrats?
So there could be a competitive political environment with actual accountability for “the system” they despise? Ushering in a sea change in local governance? Embracing needed reforms of the public school monopoly, municipal services and electoral corruption? A government actually FOR the people, not just “by” them?
This is a Democrat problem which has beget an American crisis. To fix it? Democrat voters – especially those in our country’s urban outposts – need to own it.
Just a thought offered in good faith.
