If every voter that does not approve of Donald Trump votes on November 3 in 2020, then Donald Trump cannot win the election. The only way Trump will win is if millions of voters stay home because they don’t like what they are reading or hearing about the Democrat running against him.
Real Clear Politics reports that the trends say there is a strong chance that at least 66.5 percent of eligible voters will vote in 2020. With more than 50-percent of the population not approving of Donald Trump, he could lose by as much as twenty-million votes … if everyone that does not approve of Trump, votes!
This Presidential election is not about the positions you support or do not support. It is a referendum, a general vote by the electorate on a single political question.
What kind of country do you want to live in?
If Trump wins in 2020 with his endless lies and messages of hate and racism, then Trump will think he has a mandate to completely dismantle the U.S. Constitution and turn the United States into a brutal, cruel, autocratic dictatorship like Adolf Hitler did in Germany in 1933, or Stalin in Russia in the 1920s, or Mao in China in the 1950s.
2020 is Donald Trump versus the U.S. Constitution.
If Donald Trump loses by a massive landslide and the U.S. Constitution is established as the law of our great country, again, we can return to bickering and arguing over the other issues: abortion, welfare, the military budget, public education, taxes, Social Security, medical care, the wars in the Middle East, Islamic terrorism, and global warming, et al.
What if Donald Trump wins another four years in the White House? Then the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law it represents will be the loser and the United States will become a white-dominated country just like South Africa was during Apartheid.
Apartheid was a system of institutionalized racial segregation that existed in South Africa and Southwest Africa from 1948 until the early 1990s. History.com reminds us of the harsh realities of life under Apartheid in South Africa. For decades, the country’s black majority was controlled by racist laws enshrined in white supremacy.
But Donald Trump, no matter what he says or tweets, has clearly revealed that he will crush all minorities that are not Caucasians.
In 2020, make no mistake, a vote for Donald Trump will be a vote for Apartheid in the United States and not a vote to support the U.S. Constitution that was written by our Founding Fathers in the late 18th century to protect all American citizens against horrors of concentration camps and Apartheid like it existed in South Africa.
