From elsewhere in the blogosphere, regarding this post:
"Mr. Aesop you make a number of good points. What are your thoughts if the republicans put a stomping on the left next month and conversely if the democrats give the republicans a drubbing? My uninformed guess is that both alternatives will embolden the left."
The Kavanaugh debacle cost the Dems any chance of taking the Senate this November.
Barring a financial meltdown, or the president in a kiddie porn video, Trump is re-elected in 2020 in a walkaway.
All that leaves is the House.
The conventional wisdom and polling data say the Dems are going to pick up 10 House seats for sure next month, but whether they can flip the majority (23+ seats) is still an open question.
If they do, it's all impeachment and investigation, all the time.
Which will almost certainly lose them the House again in 2020.
(And FWIW, I consider trying to undo 2016 by impeaching Pres. Trump, like trying to undo the 2nd Amendment, to be an actual revolution-inducing act, in a kill-them-all-and-let-God-sort-them-out way. And not metaphorically. YMMV.)
If they don't get the House in the mid-terms, they've already turned the crazy up to "11", and they have nowhere left to go there, except actual, regular, political violence. I expect them to do that, because
a) they're really that stupid
b) they have no other choice
c) they lack the common sense or insight to recognize the result of that course of action beforehand, and lack the self control among their idiot minions to stop it anyway even if they wanted to.
That will be an extinction event for them, because the Right will declare open season on them, and the Moderates will sit back and watch approvingly.
Because once you yell "Play ball!" on killing your political opponents as a viable course of action, Americans have a long and distinguished history of shoving that bat right up your ass. And then, going after your family for good measure.
And both sides know that after the first killing, all the rest are effectively free, so this promises to be a short but ugly spasm of violence. To start.
After that, any bets or prognostications enter a fogbank of epic proportions, because once you uncork that genie, things will get out of hand and we'll all be lucky to live through this, as Fred Thompson warned us.
That's it in a nutshell.
The Leftards have lost their minds.
Before they can regain their senses, you're going to have to get their attention first.
The only thing that will do that, amounts to large numbers (Antietam/Gettysburg-large, not 9/11-large) of them stacked up like cordwood, or hanging from lamp posts.
And those who receive exactly that will be the most confused and surprised at the sudden change of fortune.
But I think we've gone beyond the point where anything lesser will avail.
They don't have the sense to back off, and they have too much momentum to back down. Even if the lemmings at the front of the pack stop, the ones in the back will just slam into the herd until they all go over the cliff anyways.
Plan for that, but hope I'm totally wrong, and the Lefttards suddenly discover how to suck it up and deal with reality.
(Personally, if I miss this by a country mile - in a good way - I couldn't be happier.)
