"Patriots are not revolutionaries trying to overthrow the government of the United States.
Patriots are Counter-Revolutionaries trying to prevent the government from overthrowing the Constitution."
The Coach’s Team (TCT) offers the best in conservative essays along with articles taken from various internet sites. The victory of Donald Trump has provided a God-sent opportunity to reverse the years of willful damage done our nation by Barack Hussein Obama.
When a team loses
badly in a competitive sporting event, the players normally admit that the
other team was just the better team on that specific day. They don't
kick, scream, pick fights, and blame everyone else. Rather, they
regroup, learn from their mistakes, make changes to get better, and decide on a
specific approach or method to utilize the next time the two teams
meet. In other words, they have a plan!
It wasn't my FAULT!
In the 2016
elections, the Democrats had no plan! Hillary Clinton ran with no
message, no theme, and nothing new to tell the American public. A
year and a half later, nothing has changed. Rather, the Democratic
Party has resorted to name-calling, fighting, and underhanded tactics in an
effort to solidify its base. These tactics, however, have had the
opposite result and have helped Republicans.
As a litigator who
has tried cases, one of the most important things I know to do when preparing a
case for trial is to choose a theme. In other words, what is your
story, and what message are you trying to "sell" to the
jury? This theme should be clear from your opening statement and
should be reiterated and supported all the way through closing arguments.
The absence of a
clear message or theme can be fatal to your client's case, just as it was to
the Democrats in 2016. It leaves the jury (voters) in limbo, forces
them to engage in guesswork and speculation, results in division among the
jurors (voters), and makes the lawyer (Democratic Party) look unprofessional,
disorganized, and incompetent.
The Democratic Party
has a problem. It does not have a clear message or theme that it can
sell to the American public. Rather, the party, through many of its
members and some of the major news outlets, has attempted to solidify its base
by attacking President Trump directly or indirectly.
Democrats continue to allege that President Trump colluded with the Russians
during the 2016 election. To date, there has been no evidence of
collusion. Democrats also continue to attack or try to block some of
President Trump's different appointees, including Judge Neil Gorsuch; Mike
Pompeo; and, most recently, Gina Haspel. Moreover, some Democrats
(and a few Republicans), including former president Obama and Dianne Feinstein,
have attacked President Trump's decision
to pull the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal. The list
goes on and on, but the nexus among most of the attacks continues to be President
While many Democrats
continue to attack President Trump and those directly or indirectly associated
with him, he continues to succeed and to do what he promised. He
gutted Obamacare, persuaded the North Korean leader to discuss possible
denuclearization, withdrew the United Stated from the terrible Iran deal,
arranged for the release of three Americans from North Korea, improved the
economy, decreased unemployment, and reestablished America's credibility as a
superpower around the world.
