The Democrat party is hemorrhaging support in the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade. Long pushed by democrats as a mainline issue, Roe v Wade is seen by democrat voters as the one legal artifact enabling them to abort their pregnancies. This, of course, is not accurate. The truth is that by overturning RVW, the Supreme Court is leaving it up to the states to decide whether or not abortions will be legal on the local level.
Inevitably, abortions will be banned in some states and permitted in others. A mere inconvenience for those who want abortions, they may now have to cross state lines to get them. Certainly, that won’t stop those who are motivated to terminate a pregnancy.
But democrats have been losing the support of their voting constituency for some time now. It started after the clearly fraudulent election of former vice president Biden, as some democrats had the good sense and the decency to see that event for what it is. Naturally, it only got worse for Dems as Biden abandoned Afghanistan and began driving the economy into the dirt.
As of May of this year, more than half of Democrat voters said they were unhappy with the leadership of the party. As that number grows, more and more democrats feel safe enough to voice their dissatisfaction. After the RVW decision last week, Democratic voters are coming out strong against their own party. There have been riots, of course. But there have also been rallies and meetings with leading dem lawmakers. At these events, Democratic voters chanted annoying slogans as they always do, but this time they were aimed at Dems.
One group of protesters chanted, “Voting blue is not enough. Democrats, we call your bluff.” At a meeting with Nancy Pelosi, democrat protesters verbally battered the speaker of the house, refusing to let her speak.
While we disagree with riots, mindless chanting, and not letting people speak- it is heartwarming to see democrat leaders get some of their own medicine. After decades of being smeared and maligned by the left, it is refreshing.
But the really exciting part of this story is the fact that a growing number of dem voters is expressing distrust as their leaders call for more donations in response to their failure to codify abortion protection into law.
After RVW was turned over, democrat campaign machines started firing off emails to their voters asking for immediate donations. For what might be the first time in our nation’s history, democrat voters are beginning to see that the politicians they vote for have nothing to run on but grievance and fear.
Dem voters on social media have been posting videos in which they explain how their leaders immediately sent demands for immediate donations after the Supreme Court made its decision. They are saying that they won’t reward them for failure this time. They are also saying that they find the timing to be tone-deaf.
But the thing that caught our attention about the email campaigns was the tone of entitlement. The language they use seemed to indicate that they expect to get the money they ask for. They used phrases like “you have a duty” to send $15 immediately. Imagine talking to someone who generously makes your career possible in that tone of voice. It’s stomach-turning.
Taking a wider view, it isn’t surprising that this would turn out to be a bad time for dem leaders to take their voters for granted. People of all political persuasions have been losing faith in government institutions steadily over the last year.
For the democrats, what got the ball rolling most was probably the irresponsible way Biden pulled troops out of Afghanistan, stranding American civilians, and allowing the Taliban to procure a wealth of American military equipment.
For conservatives, it’s just the spreading of a tumor to the other lung. We have been losing faith in our party steadily after it failed to stop the theft of the election. And RINO’s capitulation with the democrat’s willful demolition of our country has driven many conservatives to the realization that much of our party is there to hold the door open for political vandals.
At this point, it seems inevitable that we are heading for a period of instability. Hopefully, men and women of good will be able to salvage something valuable from the ashes.
