Reasons for Hope in Conservatives’ Future

    Peter Burfeind explains in a Federalist column why conservatives have good reasons to remain hopeful after the 2020 election.

  • If Joe Biden walks away with a presidential victory, conservatives will have many reasons to despair. This would portend some terrifying realities about propaganda and the manipulation of public opinion, the acceptance of potential fraud, and the willingness to accept the curtailment of basic liberties.
  • But it need not. In fact, conservatives have reason to be quite hopeful. We might be in an Obi-Wan Kenobi moment, wherein striking Trump down will make his movement more powerful than anyone can possibly imagine. ...
  • ... [W]e have ... long-term reasons to be hopeful.
  • Final Liberation from Establishment Republicans
  • At some level, the left has to be jealous. For any chance of defeating Donald Trump, look what they had to settle for: a dementia-addled, 78-year-old fossil who's spent 47 years in the Senate as a pandering politician straight out of Central Casting. But the Democrat establishment pushed him because he polled best against Trump. ...
  • ... 2. Germination of Several Movements
  • Let's get into that new generation of conservatives. Trump brought in a significant swath of working-class voters. The Blexit movement continues, with obvious results in the increased turnout of black voters for Trump. With Trump's Hispanic gains, can we say the whole "demography is destiny" theory officially ran out of juice at, of all places, the Rio Grande and southern Florida? ...
  • ... The left is running their asylum now. They're great at manufacturing fear about the bogeymen behind "the system," but in actual governance, they do nothing but lose. Of course, the leftist answer to that conundrum is, "If we all just work together, nothing is impossible." So they can continue to blame the Senate, disinformation, gridlock, those on "the wrong side of history," and Trump.
  • The whole point of leftism is that it can't succeed without total investment by everyone in its program.
