McClatchy DC reports:
Democrats are winning special elections this year. Just not the ones most people are paying attention to.As I have written before, the best thing the Democrats have going for them is the buffoonish Trump in the presidency.
In a party desperate for victories, Democratic candidates are finding the most success in little-noticed state legislative races. They’ve already won four seats previously under Republican control, some of them in battleground districts that split evenly between President Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Party leaders say it’s a sign that they are benefitting from a broad backlash to the Republican president, one that failed to lift a quartet of special election U.S. House candidates — including Jon Ossoff in Georgia or Rob Quist in Montana — to victories of their own.
The last thing they should want is Trump impeached.
Of course, this is terrible for liberty.
Prepare for more socialism with Democrats gaining power.
There is simply no fundamental appreciation of the value of liberty amongst the masses.
Libertarian support for Trump is a serious error. Trump must be called out every time he moves in an interventionist manner. That there is a liberty option must be advanced at every opportunity. But it is very late.
Judge Napolitano is very correct in warning about dark clouds.
