Ten Reasons You Should Vote Republican on November 6th

By Ben Shapiro, 10-14-18, at Fox News:

The 2018 election is just 21 days away. Republicans have gained ground in the Senate over the last week. In the House, however, Republicans trail badly: a new CNN poll has Republicans down 13 points in the generic Congressional ballot, and even the more optimistic Economist poll has them down 6 points.

All of this should motivate you to get out and vote. Because if Democrats win the House and Senate in 2018, conservatives should be prepared for an all-out assault on their values — and an assault on President Trump from the media that makes the last 2 years look like child’s play.

Here are ten reasons you should get out and vote on November 6 – and vote Republican.

1. The Courts. For generations, the left has stacked the courts with judicial activists determined to read their priorities into the law by twisting the Constitution beyond recognition. President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have successfully remade the federal judiciary by appointing and confirming judges dedicated to the proposition that the Constitution must be read as it was written. If Democrats somehow win back the Senate, they will hold open every single judicial seat, hoping that a Democrat takes the White House in 2020. Then they’ll go right back to rigging the judicial branch, using it as a club with which to destroy Constitutional rights and traditional values.

2. The Investigations. Democrats have already pledged investigations into every aspect of President Trump’s life. They’ll subpoena every member of government they can get their hands on. And we know that they don’t care about guilt or innocence – after all, they just tried to railroad a federal judge by claiming, without corroborating evidence, that he was an alleged gang rapist. In fact, Democrats have already pledged to launch another investigation into Justice Kavanaugh, hoping to undo the results of the confirmation vote. If you enjoyed the disgusting spectacle of Democrats trying to destroy due process of law, get ready for more.

3. Impeachment. While Democratic leadership has been lukewarm on the idea of impeaching President Trump, the base won’t settle for anything less if the Democrats take the House of Representatives. They’ll demand that Trump be impeached for any reason whatsoever – and then they’ll push the narrative that corrupt Republicans don’t care about the rule of law. Now, it’s just possible that Democrats could create a backlash that helps President Trump – that voters react to impeachment by supporting him. But that’s a risky proposition at best.

4. The Economy. President Trump’s chief selling point in his re-election effort will be the economy. And Democrats are dedicated to stifling economic growth if it means stopping Trump. They’ll hold up budgets, blow out spending, push for harsh anti-business regulation. They’ll kill the predictable pro-business climate President Trump has carefully crafted. The stock market will tumble as Wall Street begins to price in the effect of Democratic governance. And businesses will start to sock away capital again to prepare for the possibility that a unified Democratic government could enter Washington in 2020.

5. Foreign Policy. President Trump has done a fantastic job of drawing us closer to our allies and throwing a scare into our enemies. He’s done so because Republicans in Congress are willing to bolster our defense spending as necessary. The same isn’t true of Democrats, who would immediately move to cut defense spending, signaling to the world that President Obama’s weak-kneed foreign policy is back. Democrats would also attempt to undermine sanctions against the Iranian regime in keeping with Obama-era foreign policy.

6. Polarizing Culture Wars. We’ve already seen the Democrats suggest that mob politics is the new normal. We’ve seen the Democrats capitalize on racial issues to polarize the country; we’ve seen them try to divide Americans by class and sex as well. With the platform of Congress, look for Democrats to attempt a series of divisive maneuvers intended to relaunch the culture wars in new and frightening ways.

7. Attacks on Religious Liberty. President Trump has been stalwart in his defense of religious liberty. Democrats will be just as stalwart in their attacks on religious liberty. They’ll surely attempt to push so-called anti-discrimination laws directed at religious businesses, churches, and schools – and then they’ll dare President Trump to veto them so that they can claim that he is a bigot.

8. The Twisting Of Social Media. Democrats have made a habit of threatening our biggest social media companies with investigations and regulations should they fail to crack down on conservative perspectives. Democrats, angry at Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss, blamed companies like Facebook for so-called “fake news,” and attributed Clinton’s utter incompetence to the impact of Russian bots. Democrats don’t believe any of that, but they’ve frightened social media companies into cracking down on free speech, as a leaked report from Google to Breitbart News showed this week. Social media companies are deeply afraid of Democrats punishing them for failing to target conservatives. Don’t be surprised if those social media companies escalate their efforts to do just that.

9. Radical Growth of the Democrat-Media Complex. We already know that the mainstream media institutions are dominated by Democratic supporters. And we know that those Democratic supporters will parrot any talking points the Democratic Party pushes. But with Democrats in power pushing every line of attack simultaneously, the media’s never-ending firehouse of anti-Republican propaganda will merely widen the nozzle. If you’re worried about media bias now, wait until Democrats control the Congress and put President Trump in their sights.

10. Mob Rule. Democrats believe that they must lash out in anger in order to win in 2018. If they do win, they’ll double down on that anger, hoping it carries them to victory in 2020. Like the mobs invading the Senate and the steps of the Supreme Court? Enjoying top Democratic officials nodding and smiling at crowds harassing Republicans in restaurants? Get ready for much, much more. The only way to shut down the Democrats’ new mob rule strategy is to stop them cold at the ballot box.

Your vote matters. Your vote counts. Get out there on Election Day and ensure that the Democratic Party of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer aren’t allowed anywhere near the levers of power.


McConnell and the rest of the Senate Republicans are fired up right now, so let’s keep it that way. We also have a chance at getting a real conservative as the new House Speaker.

Mid-terms are notorious for low turn-out, so we can’t assume anything.  All good reasons to get out and vote, but for the life of me, I can’t understand why Ben would trust a CNN poll, when we know they lie so much of the time.

  1. This election I haven’t done a list for all my family on for whom to vote. (The one election I didn’t they all called me moaning that they didn’t know who to vote for.) This time my instructions will be:

    • I do the same thing for a few of my friends that don’t research for themselves and my suggestions are basically the same. Locally we have quite a few unopposed candidates, so it’s a no-brainer this time.

  2. I can no longer relate to the concept of not voting in every possible election, and I especially can’t relate to Republicans who are contemplating sitting THIS election out. Every time we get a little momentum people go right back their lazy complacency, or they switch to the other party as if they have some voting psychosis. Whatever happened to “stay the course?” How fickle are those who are impatient less than two years into the Trump presidency?

    I agree with all of Ben Shapiro’s reasons for voting ‘R,’ naturally, but I am getting impatient for the day when all of this goes without saying, when all we have to do is say the opposition are leftists, and the danger will be understood. On second thought I guess I could add one more reason to the list: Helping to secure a Republican victory is the right thing to for the sake of your kids and grandkids. It’s the only way to possibly ensure we continue the protections they are guaranteed under the Constitution.

    • All good points, CW. After Trump won and the Dems went into hissy fits and whining ‘he’s not my president’ I estimated that it would take them about a year to calm down, but instead they’ve doubled down on it and have become even more violent. (Look at Portland right now)

      Now is not the time to let our guard down or those in favor of the violence will be in charge. As you say, we have to keep the momentum going, plus there is one more reason to vote R – it’s our only weapon.
