The Democrat’s out-of-touch $100+ Trillion socialist agenda has been on display in the first #100DaysofDems, and it just keeps adding up:
Medicare for All
+ “Green New Deal”
+ “Free” Tuition
+ Minimum Wage Hike
+ Universal Basic Income

The GOP’s plan is to run on MIGA and “capitalism vs. socialism” in the 2020 election. Ever since they have rolled out this foolish messaging it has been stirring a backlash in populist circles.
There are lots of populists who are DEEPLY SKEPTICAL of the sort of conservative-lolbertarian economics championed by former House Speaker Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney. Ryan is no longer in Congress after presiding over his House majority getting blown out in the last election.
Does it make any sense to run on Reaganism in 2020? Could Ronald Reagan even get elected today on his 1980s agenda? I will again come back to the map because it shows the “center-right” as lolbertarian conservatives understand it who were indoctrinated in a bunch of bullshit in conservative think tanks doesn’t even exist anymore. A huge percentage of older voters have moved on from conservatism to populism and nationalism. They’ve done this all over Europe as well.
Think about it: Karl Rove is a GOP strategist and he had no idea that Mitt Romney was going to lose in 2012 or that Trump would win the nomination or the presidency in 2016 because he is a Boomer. FOX News and the mainstream media had no idea why it happened either. They still don’t understand why it happened probably because they are ALL out of touch whether it was blaming a Russian conspiracy or attributing it as a mandate for Paul Ryan’s agenda between 2017-2018.
Maybe the sense that I have of the electorate is wrong. It could be that The New York Times and The Washington Post and Karl Rove are right about “the center.” In that case, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush should have been able to rally thousands like Blompf in 2012 and 2016 because the “center-right” is down there in the lolbertarian-conservative quadrant.
It could also be that the conventional wisdom is deeply wrong. Outdated.
If my theory about the American political spectrum is correct, then I can foresee one of two scenarios unfolding with the Yang movement in the 2020 election:
1.) The first scenario is that Yang runs in the 2020 Democratic primary and flames out like Ron Paul due to opposition from the party establishment and entrenched interests.
2.) The second scenario is that Yang manages to punch through like Trump in 2016. In that case, it would be a Trump vs. Yang race and then the reaction would be like this:
Shep: This is a FOX News election alert, Georgia goes to Andrew Yang, Andrew Yang is the president of the United States. And there is the big board, the 17 electoral votes from the State of Georgia we just got new metrics in. Andrew Yang is the president of the United States elect …
Bret Bair: We are going to make this decision now. The FOX News Decision Desk has called Missouri for Andrew Yang. This means that Andrew Yang will be the 46th president of the United States winning the most unreal, surreal election we have ever seen.
Seriously, crazier things have happened.
Blompf is president. We elected a moron as president because of immigration and political correctness.
Note: Saving this prediction for later. It will be either one or the other.
