Brandon J. Weichert answers the conservative quitters:
Trump has seemed, at times, to sputter in implementing his transformative agenda—whether it was the Obamacare repeal, the idiotic spending bill from earlier this year, or the border wall. Coulter (and, to be sure, others) think that because it has been difficult to implement the agenda, we should just give it up; we’ve been had, the system is rigged.
Should we just stop trying, since we haven’t achieved the victories we should have won over the past two years? [. . .]
Republicans, along with forgetting how to win without Trump, have forgotten the cardinal rule of warfare: the enemy gets a vote.
Yes, the Democrats are going to fight hard—harder than they’ve ever fought before—precisely because Trump and the Right are winning so bigly. Just look at what’s been accomplished thus far: massive deregulation that stimulated the economy. Yes, the tax cuts were nice. But the real economic stimulation occurred thanks to Trump’s executive order cutting thousands of unnecessary Obama-era regulations on his first day in office. From that point, the economy has enjoyed one of the greatest expansions in decades. Unemployment has plummeted, Americans are getting back to work. It’s not enough, but it’s a start.
Trump is winning. The media won’t tell you that. Academicians won’t acknowledge it. But he is pushing back. His mere presence in office is stopping the Left’s “long march” through America’s institutions.
Just look at the courts.
In two years, Trump has made a more lasting impression on the federal courts than his predecessors ever could have hoped to make. Why? Because of his gumption. The president is also forcing Washington’s policy elites to take seriously the concept of protectionism as a viable policy for defending core American interests—something that never would have happened without Trump. The list of his successes is long and we should not be surprised when these wins inspire a greater level of resistance from the Left.
