While President Trump is continuing his attacks against Georgia’s Republican leadership for their lackadaisical approach at verifying the vote count, he may be doing more damage than good. His cries of foul aren’t sitting well with the ever-growing number of conservative pundits who are urging the president to accept the election results and move on.
Should the chaotic hodgepodge continue along the same path it’s been jogging down, things could go completely awry. When and if these conservatives should become disillusioned to the point of tossing their hands in the air, crying Chuck Schumer could very well assume the role of majority leader.
Here is why keeping the peach eaters happy is so important. The current outlook shows Republicans with 50 Senate seats to the Democrats 48, entering January. Two Senate seats are up for grabs in the runoff, and they both belong to Georgia.
Should Republicans manage to grab just one of those seats they will continue controlling the Senate. But if the Democrats should somehow snag both of them, disaster will strike. With an even 50/50 Senate, Kamala Harris will cast the tie-breaking vote that clenches the deal for the blue.
From this perspective, It’ll take no more than one fat-ass Democrat to change the entire scope of our government, which will give Joe Biden plenty of leeways to forge ahead with his socialistic plans. Keeping a Republican Senate gives us the assurance of resistance to Biden’s raising taxes, signing off on a new Green Deal, banning guns, beefing up Obamacare, and his catering to unions.
Keeping Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at the helm will put the nix on Papa Joe rushing in to confirm radical liberal nominees to the Cabinet or judiciary. If he wants any vacancies filled at all he will be forced to offer those positions to conservatives. Biden still has the option of flinging out some executive orders, but those orders would be so deeply entrenched in litigation it would take years for them to take effect.
If the Dems do somehow manage to sweep Georgia, thereby placing Schumer in charge, there will but one guy left in the Senate who still has enough power to at least make life difficult for them. That guy is Republican Senator Joe Manchin from West Virginia.
The problem with Manchin is that he is oftentimes a Democrat in Republican clothing. Thus far during his time in the Senate, Manchin has voted with Schumer at least 86% of the time. And while Manchin doesn’t claim to lean as far left as Bernie Sanders, for the right price he can be convinced to push liberal agendas. Given this fact, Harris may never need to use her tie-breaker vote.
President Trump conceding the election would allow him ample time to get behind the two Georgia candidates and help propel them to victory, thereby keeping the Senate out of Democrat’s hands. He should be telling Georgian’s how voting for Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler would help keep Biden in check, and help to preserve his own legacy.
By his continued insistence of widespread fraud stealing the election from him, Trump is undermining the future of the Senate. The vast conspiracy theories being tossed out to anyone who will listen is not only confusing to voters but they all but implicate the very same candidates who need to win the January runoff.
Trump recently tweeted, “Georgia Secretary of State, a so-called Republican (RINO), won’t let the people checking the ballots see the signatures for fraud. Why? Without this the whole process is very unfair and close to meaningless. Everyone knows that we won the state. Where is @BrianKempGA?”
This type of anger directed solely at Georgia Republicans is causing disillusionment among Georgia’s GOP voters with just weeks remaining until the runoff elections.
Let’s be real for a moment. Maintaining Republican control of the Senate is crucial for the future of America. And while we are all pleased with the job President Trump has done over the past four years, the time has come, for the sake of this great nation, for him to change his tune.
