For the next two years, Democrats will control the presidency, the U.S. Senate, and the U.S. House of Representatives. But this is not the Democratic Party of old. This is the furthest left Democratic Party in history.

That’s a sobering reality that should concern every American. What does it mean for our country?

Much of today’s Democratic Party has an agenda that undermines America’s guiding principles — the same principles that have made America the freest, most equal and most just nation in human history. Most of the time, Democrats don’t try to hide it. Freedom and equal opportunity are out. Censorship and intolerance are in.

President-elect Joe Biden’s administration is the vehicle to advance this vision. The goal is to impose more control over America’s culture and economy.

Start with the culture. It wasn’t that long ago when sincere liberal leaders stood for free speech, freedom of religion, freedom of thought and tolerance of different views. Those days are gone.

What started with "political correctness" has morphed into "cancel culture." From college classrooms to corporate boardrooms, to media green rooms, to holiday dining rooms, liberal elites want to silence anyone who does not toe the far-left line.

Examples are everywhere. A Hispanic-owned company was boycotted for its CEO’s political views. Diners at a restaurant were intimidated by radical activists into raising their fists in a show of solidarity. Liberal professors were run off campus by the ultra-liberal fringe. The list doesn’t stop.

Members of the far-left are even comfortable using the full force of government to impose their views on the rest of us. They’ve tried to shut down a Catholic adoption agency, targeted conservative nonprofits because of their political views, and mandated teaching in classrooms that condemns the founding of our country.

What they really want is to massively expand government and use its immense power to remake American culture however they want.

The far-left vision for the economy is just as harmful. Only a few years ago, Americans of all political stripes believed in capitalism. Right, left, or center, we all knew economic freedom is essential to creating better lives and brighter futures for people of all beliefs and backgrounds.

Many Democrats have abandoned that truth. They have replaced it with socialism — the opposite of capitalism and economic freedom. Their economic agenda is based on the idea of control. It means more government power, more corporate bailouts, more bailouts for dysfunctional state governments, more lockdowns and less freedom. That is the essence of socialism.

Today’s Democrats think politicians can spend your money better than you can. That’s why they call for enormous tax hikes.

They think bureaucrats can run businesses better than the people who create them. That’s why they push for huge regulations.

They think the same government that has broken health care can somehow fix it, if only it had more control over patients and doctors.

Ultimately, liberal elites think they’re smarter than the rest of us — that they have the brains and the birthright to build a better economy for all.

But they don’t. And their socialist ideas have failed everywhere they’ve been tried.

When capitalism gives way to socialism, the result is always less opportunity, more poverty and more suffering. That’s what happens when people have less freedom.

The single mom who wants to find a job can’t. The inner-city kid who wants to build a business can’t. The community college student who wants to turn his innovative idea into reality can’t. In every case, socialism pushes people down, while capitalism lifts us all up.

In the culture and the economy, the liberals’ way is wrong. But the overwhelming majority of Americans still believe in this country. We know America isn’t racist. We know free speech matters. We know capitalism can lift up the poor and unleash a new era of prosperity.

Most of all, we know America isn’t America without freedom. And we will stand up for preserving that freedom for ourselves and future generations. That is the job of the loyal opposition.

Two years ago, I founded Stand For America, which has already mobilized more than 2 million Americans in defense of freedom. We need more courageous leaders to hold the line against one-party liberal rule in Washington. And we need more citizens who will vigorously engage to protect those principles.

America is worth it. So let’s resolve, right now, to stand for America — and keep the flame of freedom alive.

Right now she would probably be my first choice for the 2024 ticket. Haley-Crenshaw.

I think it will be 2 women running against each other. Republicans have to consider electability more so than who they might like the best.

Now, I don't see anything in that post that a reasonable person would disagree with. I have voted for her previously and hope to have the opportunity again. She knows when to speak and when to listen. Knows what to say. And I think she can be counted on to do the right thing for the country. Ran for governor with little experience against the good old boys/career politicians and won. Many policies similar to Trump. But without the rough speech and crude behavior. And smarter. She earned respect instead of demanding it.

Not sure who the Crenshaw is but I would go for Haley 2024. Would like to see Candace Owens tied in there too. Maybe actually make some progress on racism.

I agree basically with what she said about political correctness and the controls over everything you do with regulations etc. I believe it is desperate governments trying to make jobs for people in policing all these policies. We don't have any productive industries any more over here so government has to dream up these unproductive jobs funded out of thin air to keep people employed. Our only income now is mining and agriculture.
We have this national disability insurance scheme now which is the biggest wrought going, people that can get it abuse it and it is big business now providing the assistance and employment in it all after negotiating all the political correctness requirements of government. Again it is all about employment in unproductive jobs.

We have to believe people when they tell us who they are. Too many people think "well Biden said that but it will never happen..."

Believe people when they tell you who they are.

Hitler told everyone who he was and divided people to the point of either you are with him or against him.
So did Mao Zedong.
Biden and Harris are allowing it. After Wednesday they will ramp it up.

The rough speech from Trump was always directed at the Media, Elites, and Politicians. Unlike the Dems who insult and criticize every day working class people that don’t agree with them. So many on the left hate Trumps behavior, how dare he insult politicians!

Many on the right hate his behavior as well but they like the results of his efforts.

Nikki "canceled" SC culture that was not part of her culture. She used an awful disaster caused by a deranged person as a rallying point to put her stamp on SC history. She is no different than the rest.

I don't view it that way. No one can "cancel" the culture. Culture is internal to the people. Nikki removed the confederate flag from the state house grounds. The flag was added to the state house in 1961 to "honor" the 100 year anniversary of the START of the civil war. Might have been an ulterior political motive to add it back - you think? Previously, it had not flown at the state house since the end of the civil war. For the almost 100 year period that it did not fly at the state house, was that an indication that someone else had already "canceled" the culture? Is there a desire to go back to the era prior to and during the civil war? Not for me for sure.
There is a principle in the Book that if your actions are OK, but those actions cause your brothers to stumble, then it is better to stop those actions than to keep your brothers stumbling. I don't miss the flag at the state house. South Carolina does not fly the British Flag at the state house. Did we cancel that culture as well?
Is there a perfect candidate for any office? Have we ever had a perfect president? None that I can remember in my lifetime. But, certainly some have been better and worse than others. In four years, it is my hope that the majority will be ready for a change. The candidate then needs to be one that lead us forward to a more united conservative agenda and needs to be less than 70 years old. And not held back by a mean spirit, liberal socialist ideas, or a lack of intelligence.
Just my opinion.

Nikki was raised in our evil culture as the daughter of Indian immigrant parents in a small town. How did she achieve such a high level of ability and prominence with such evil and hate all around her? Her action definitely was a part of the cancel culture. History will see it that way as she used the actions of ONE low IQ deranged guy to promote her actions. Many built on her action.

There is quite a flurry of concern over the most recent national election. Did a few states cheat and infringe on the rights of the majority of the states? It is implied but nobody will bring it up in a court of law to honestly determine the whole of it. The lack of daylight has infuriated people. The issue, as in 1859 - states rights. History repeats itself.
