As Nikki Haley runs to be the Republican candidate for the President of the United States, she has learned that they have not won the popular vote for some time. Unfortunately, she has not learned that few want the policies she and her party will bring.
Nikki Haley has a dilemma.
Nikki Haley is now running for president. She is trying to reinvent herself as she points out the inconvenient fact the Republicans have not won the popular vote in the last 6 of 7 elections.
Haley fails to understand that it is not as simple as dropping Trump but instead supporting middle-class-centric policies. Unfortunately, till then, the loss in popular support will widen. After all, Trump [won] his first election with a 3 million vote deficit and lost his 2nd election by over 7 million votes. Gerrymandering for minority rule has its limits.
But here is a caution to those who believe they will eventually create an egalitarian society as demographics change. Court stacking means that any law can be made unconstitutional whether it is on not.
A few years ago, I wrote the following.
There are a lot of headwinds. Progresives and their allies must win with supermajorities to be a deterrent to the courts owned by the Plutocracy.
Have you wondered why Mitch McConnell blocked Merrick Garland, Obama’s Supreme Court pick, at all cost? Have you asked why Republicans had the gall to kill the filibuster on Supreme Court justices even though it is the most powerful position in the country? Have you wondered why our most inept president appointed a crop of young, unqualified judges on our Federal Circuit Courts and the Supreme Court?
We should not believe that the take over of the courts by one party is a Trump thing. He is neither analytical nor intelligent. We should stop concentrating on the clown show by Republicans who try to get our attention every day. The GOP is not only destroying the middle-class economically as the clowns distract us. They intend to change the legislative fabric to disempower the masses. The neutering of the middle-class is not a new thing. It has been orchestrated for some time now.
Republicans are using the Constitution to accomplish the above feat. It is about using that document to prevent the change in the country that will no longer tolerate bias against the masses.
I hope we understand the headwinds. We must for the survival of the country as we want it.
