The Future of America: Conservatives Are Fighting for Its Preservation in 2020


What would happen if the 2020 elections were held today? It is an innocent question, but a good one.

Would Donald Trump win in a “prophetically” anticipated Reagan-like victory? Would it be closer than many people imagine it to be?

It is a conversation that many conservatives don’t want to have. Where are we failing?

However painful it may be, it is a necessary conversation to have. Many people have said that 2016 was an election that couldn’t be lost. Many on the conservative side believed it to be a matter of life as we know it in our country to be over.

Were they wrong?

Imagine Hillary Clinton had won that election. The AOCs and Omars were coming no matter what took place. The calls for gun control, post-birth “abortion” and the Green New Deal would happen no matter what.

The difference is, under another Clinton president, these extreme ideas would not be questioned or argued against — they would be embraced.

Our economy would be in shambles. The entire infrastructure of our society would have fallen within a matter of years.

Whether you love Donald Trump or hate him, he is necessary. He is not just the president that we want, he is the president that we need.

Do you think the 2020 election is a fight for America?

It’s true — we need someone willing to make the hard choices. We need someone who does not care about being liked. We need someone who loves America more than he loves himself.

The 2016 election was a make or break moment for America, and 2020 will be too, as we have even more to lose.

We’ve had 3 years of prosperity under the Trump administration. We now know what it’s like to have a thriving economy, low unemployment, more jobs than workers, a president that actually cares about the black and Hispanic communities.

We have a president who has brought respect back to America.

In 2020, we fight our biggest battle. We are fighting the direct counter to a President Trump.

Op-Ed: What Hamas Taught Us - The Education Establishment Is a Tool of Leftist Indoctrination

We are fighting radicalism. We are fighting a new notion that America is not a great place. We are fighting this new belief that everything we hold dear is wrong. We are fighting for the preservation of every value that built this great nation.

We are fighting for our future, and the future of those that will follow us — posterity, as our Founders put it.

And make no mistake, the Democrats are ready. They have been waiting, plotting and planning for this moment, and they are ready to activate the first-ever millennial-dominated election.

They are ready to try to convince our younger generations that they need to “save us from ourselves.”

We need to regain the spirit of 2016.

We need to remember what we are fighting for, but most of all: who we are fighting for.

Our future begins now, and if we stand together we will keep America great.
