Pre-election jitters are no longer just boiling down to a few shots of tequila as the results trickled in. Now it’s coming down to people fearing for their livelihoods and doing what’s necessary to protect them. This includes boarding up their windows and doors like a hurricane is approaching.
Rest assured, this isn’t because they’re afraid of Democrat candidate Joe Biden winning. They’re afraid of President Donald Trump winning and the Biden voters retaliating.
As the New York Post, stores all over New York City have already prepared for the possibility of a Trump win:
Stores in Soho, Midtown, and other parts of Manhattan have already fortified their glass windows with plywood ahead of Tuesday’s face-off between President Trump and his Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden.
Shops including Chanel on Spring Street and Moncler on Prince Street in Soho, Levi’s and Gucci in the neighborhood and others along Greene Street like Dior and Tiffany have taken those precautions.
Also boarded up were chain stores such as Staples, Ann Taylor, and a Bed Bath & Beyond in Chelsea, as well as the iconic Macy’s flagship in Herald Square.
High-end Manhattan retailers like Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Louis Vuitton, Bergdorf Goodman, Dolce & Gabbana and Tourneau have also boarded up their storefronts.
I don’t recall this ever being a problem in our nation during elections. This is a recent development and it’s no coincidence that this problem arose alongside the radicalization of the Democrat party. While this extremism has grown out of control in recent years, the Democrats have been inviting this to come through the door for decades.
The Marxism that has infected the party is the Democrat’s own fault but through it, Marxism has infected the nation itself. Democrat voters left and right subscribe to the idea that socialism can truly work here despite having never worked in human history before.
But socialism requires revolution and many Democrats are just fine with the idea of that and everything it comes with. This includes violent action and destruction. Those who wouldn’t go out and do it themselves are more than happy to turn a blind eye to it and will happily nod along with mainstream media sources as they declare leftist rioters peaceful as buildings burn behind them.
So we have a party that not only seeks to implement a system that has crippled or destroyed prosperous nations in the past but they’ve created a culture where violence is accepted and pardoned.
You can have that, or you can have the other side of the coin.
Trump has been attempting to restore what the Democrats have broken over the long course of many decades. The “Make America Great Again” slogan that Trump’s been throwing around is more than just a promise that things will get better. America is a great country, but there was a time when we were respected both at home and abroad.
Thanks to Trump, we’ve never been closer to this. Despite what the mainstream media will tell you, and the leftists on Twitter like to tweet, Americans are proud of their country and want to see it succeed because it deserves to.
The choice tomorrow is pretty clear.
You can vote in success, advancement, and greatness…or you can vote in boarded-up windows and people living in fear. You can vote in economic growth, or economic collapse.
The choice isn’t hard.
