In the wake of the 2018 midterms, it is time to reflect on the outcomes of the first two years on President Trump’s administration and the GOP’s inaction on policies meaningful to Southern voters and his constituency as a whole. The results of the midterm elections were less than desirable for Southern Nationalists and the greater Dissident Right. Although, there was a slight gain in seats by the GOP in the Senate, the Democrats and their progressive coalition managed to capture the House.
Some races were closer than they should have been. Most notable of these was the Florida Senate and gubernatorial races. These, of course, were only contested due to the probable voter fraud being perpetrated in Broward County by Brenda Snipes and company. In addition, the Arizona senate race was lost in frustrating fashion by Martha McSally to Kyrsten Sinema. This race could have been won by a GOP candidate that embraced a hardline stance on immigration and the border wall earlier in the campaign. Arizona is not yet a purple state, but this outcome provides a glimpse at what potential immigration from the southern border has in states like Arizona and Texas.
During the first two years of the Trump presidency the only notable legislation passed by the GOP was a tax cut. While this is nice, it seems like shuffling around deck chairs on the Titanic. The main threat that the GOP and whites face is the demographic shift from whites as a majority to a plurality. If left unchecked, this will lead to states like Texas becoming blue within our lifetime. If Texas goes, the GOP is unlikely to ever win another presidential election in its’ current manifestation. The border wall is the only issue that really matters in terms of white people being able to maintain any semblance of power in the United States. Hopefully, funding for the wall can be attained within the next two years. If this is not done, Trump’s chances of winning re-election in 2020 go by the wayside. He cannot simply use this as a plank in his platform again after such woeful inaction.
There have been certain pernicious actors in the first two years of Trump’s presidency that have made it difficult to fund the border wall. Paul Ryan and his ilk are certainly to blame for the absence of a border wall. However, Trump is ultimately responsible for the lack of progress. His pledge to “Drain the Swamp” rings hollow in the wake of a woefully inefficacious first two years. He ultimately has the power to surround himself with the kind of cabinet that will allow him to produce results.
It is my sincere hope that he fires those that are obstructing him and uses whatever political capital he has left to secure substantial funding for the border wall. In the meantime, it is up to right wing dissidents everywhere to use this time to prepare for the likely scenario of a progressive (think neo-communist) president in 2020. Networking among like minded thought criminals will become essential if the boot comes down hard. The persecution of RAM should serve as a reminder that we will not be treated fairly under the yoke of a progressive administration.
If you haven’t done so already, it is time to makes ties with your local right wing brethren and develop a support system. Even if we manage to avoid catastrophe in 2020, doing so will only make you more prosperous. By pooling our individual talents and resources we can only improve our current situation.
