2016 was awesome for conservatives…

Nobody—and I mean nobody!—was expecting Donald Trump to win not only the Republican nomination but also the presidency. He snatched our country from the clutches of Hillary Clinton, one of the evilest human beings to walk the earth, and nobody ever saw it coming.

However…

Rolling into the summer of 2016, it seemed like the entire world had already declared Hillary the winner of the election even before the first debate.

Every mainstream media company had her ahead…

WAY ahead.

Even after they actually had a few debates, Trump seemed out of his element…

He treated it more like his time in the WWE than a presidential debate, interrupting her and hitting her with one-liners. It didn’t seem like he had a snowball’s chance in Hell.

However…

He had an appeal that Hillary didn’t.

He was a regular guy (billionaire-status aside)…

Meaning he didn’t come from the world of politics. He wasn’t polished, he wasn’t even-keeled—he was crass and blunt and everything else that most politicians aren’t.

That is what resonated with the American public…

Because he didn’t come from the political world, he was automatically more trustworthy and wouldn’t operate under their politics-as-usual style of governing.

Not A Member Of Their Club

He was an outsider…

And they hated him for that because he was about to expose them for the freeloading, power-hungry, do-nothings they are—and because he’s a billionaire, they knew they couldn’t buy him.

So… they attacked him.

And come November, the American people showed up in force…

That night, we had pundits predicting that Hillary might win EVERY state in the Union.

They said that it was going to be the biggest landslide victory of any presidency ever.

And Hillary and her cronies, including Barack H. Obama, acted like Trump wasn’t worth their time or their effort.

And then…

As the results started rolling in and Trump was winning more and more states – they began to realize their mistake.

They should have checked their hubris at the door…

Because a lot of people woke up in disbelief on November 9th of that year – some of them even ready to harm themselves over the outcome.

Talk about unstable…

But that’s another conversation for another day.

The fact is…

The Left got cocky and it led to their downfall– and we as conservatives need to pay attention to the hard lesson that they learned.

What Conservatives Need To Keep In Mind

Now…

I’m not saying the Right is cocky – but we’re getting there.

If I had a nickel for every “Trump’s going to win 2020 in a landslide” post I’ve seen on social media…

Let’s just say I’d have a lot of nickels.

That being said, we have to be careful. We can’t take a victory in November for granted.

We have to continue to do the work…

We have to continue to spread the word that our country is under attack and we can’t let our vigilance fail now.

We’re getting close to the finish line…

If we want to give our president the time he needs to fulfill even MORE promises than the ones he’s already finished, then we can’t afford to get cocky…

Not now.

We have to stay sharp and call out the Left at EVERY turn – give them a taste of their own medicine…

And pray for another impeachment to boost Trump’s ratings even more.
