Last week I shared an email I received from Mitch McConnell’s re-election campaign asking for a donation to help him keep his job as Kentucky’s senior senator and leader of the Republican party.
McConnell provided no accomplishments earning him the right to serve what would be his SEVENTH term in office, other than a promise to make the GOP a “firewall” that will save America from the Democrats and their socialist agenda. By the way, if he’s re-elected and serves a SEVENTH TERM, he would be tied with Orrin Hatch as the longest-serving Republican senator in history.
“Republicans agree, the Democrats’ full embrace of socialism is alarming. As liberals in the House and those running for President scramble to enact the policies of the far-left, your Republican Senate Majority stands as the firewall that will save our country from socialism.
“Our firewall could crack though, if Senate Republicans in key battleground states don’t get the support they need. Every conservative must stand united to keep socialism at bay, and that includes you too.”
But promises to keep America secure from the malware of socialism aren’t enough for this poster child for term limits. In a meeting with a group of community leaders in Owensboro, KY, McConnell also promised to become the personification of Death itself to stop the advance of socialism if the GOP holds the senate in 2020.
“If I’m still the majority leader in the Senate, think of me as the Grim Reaper. None of that stuff is going to pass.
“I guarantee you that if I’m the last man standing and I’m still the majority leader, it ain’t happening. I can promise you.”
Well … since he promised, we can certainly believe him. After all, he kept his promise to repeal Obamacare if voters gave Republicans the keys to the kingdom in 2016. Didn’t he?
Of course, McConnell, Trump, and the rest of the GOP aren’t going to be the death of socialism. In fact, under their leadership we’ve witnessed the advance of many of the pet projects of the Far-Left, including: paid family leave, a Green New Deal alternative, expanding government-run healthcare, and gun control.
Combined with their 2020 election promises consisting of the recycled the lies they told us in 2016, the GOP’s fear mongering over socialism is merely a strategic attempt to distract voters and hide Republican failures, lies, and broken promises.
McConnell has played the “repeat broken promises to get re-elected” card before, and KY voters have fallen for it in his five previous re-election campaigns. Amazingly, despite a recent poll showing a dismal 33% approval rating with 61% of those polled calling for someone new, Mickey holds a lead against his yet-to-be-named Democrat opponent.
Most likely, that means the article I wrote right after Republicans decided to make socialism the 2020 campaign issue du jour will move one step closer to becoming a reality because; socialism wins in 2020 regardless of who’s in the White House or who controls Congress.
