If Donald Trump wins again in 2020, he’ll have the Democratic Party to thank

Radicalism doesn't sell

The United States faces a potentially life-changing election in 2020 — even more so than in 2016.

On the one hand, Americans have President Donald Trump, whose tweets and antics have long been criticized by those on the left and the right.

On the other hand, we have the Democratic Party, a party that embraces socialism and radical forms of gun control, refuses to denounce anti-Semitism in its freshmen members, and advocates for abortion up until birth. No longer do Democrats chant that abortion should be "safe, legal, and rare."

It used to be said that the two parties in America had the same goal, but with different methods of achieving it.

Those days are long gone.

Each day, the Democratic Party's platform moves further and further away from individual liberty and personal responsibility.

With a field of Democratic candidates hell-bent on seeing who can promise the most free stuff, it's time for a wake-up call: It's Donald Trump or the party that has made it clear that we are not welcome among them.

In the age of identity politics, the left is pushing conservatives to either get on board or get out of the way.

There is no room for dissent or challenge among today's Democratic Party. Try and you'll be called "Nazi," "bigot," or something worse.

No one is immune.

While the party platform becomes more and more radical, its candidates are racing to see who can alienate voters the most.

Candidates like Sens. Kamala Harris (Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), and Bernie Sanders (Vt.) have all promised varying degrees of the abolition of private insurance and Medicare-for-All.

Harris, a Democrat desperate to get ahead in the polls, recently called for gun confiscation for those deemed "unfit" to own a weapon.

Both Harris and Warren, among others, have called for reparations for blacks and Native Americans.

Warren and Sanders have duked it out over the push for cancellation of student loan debt.

Sanders' plan would forgive all of the student loan debt in America, costing a whopping $41.6 trillion — approximately $521 billion more than total credit card debt.

Warren's plan, on the other hand, would take care of a portion of student loan debt for 95 percent of people, and all student loan debt for 75 percent of people. Her plan is income-based.

While the Democrats argue over who can spend more taxpayer dollars quicker, the national debt has raced past $22 trillion.

Studies show that while younger Americans are warming up to socialism, older voters, independents, and moderates are shying away from the radical ideology.

All the Democrats have to do to win in 2020 is not be insane, and they can't do it.

While Trump's tweets and rhetoric are often condemnatory and completely unnecessary, a more dangerous foe lies in wait should he lose in 2020.

Donald Trump is the devil we know, and he won't be president forever.

In 2016, many conservatives and independents voted against Hillary Clinton in what should have been the easiest presidential election in the history of the United States.

In 2020, I'm not voting "for" Donald Trump. I'm voting against the radicalized Democratic Party.
