If It Is Not Working, Do You Keep Doing The Same Thing?

Albert Einstein says, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” That is how I see our political system, especially in Maine and New Hampshire. Looking back 40 or 50 years, both states were traditionally conservative. Still, a migration of people left Massachusetts to the less expensive Granite State or the tranquil and beautiful Pine Tree State. Unfortunately, many of these people forgot why they left Massachusetts, brought their progressive views with them, and worked to make their new home resemble their old. If the system didn’t keep you in the Bay State, why would you think it any better north of the border? But that is what they did. They elected liberal representatives and morphed their new homes into an extension of the old. They took two systems that were working well and broke them—sheer insanity.

People get caught up in their old habits. I was born in Massachusetts, where everyone is born a Kennedy Democrat. I left when I started a family and moved to New Hampshire. I had concluded that I was actually a conservative, and New Hampshire was the place I felt more comfortable for my children. I left my Democrat roots behind and embraced the “Live Free or Die” life of New Hampshire. Unfortunately, Massachusetts followed me up Route 93, and I feel like I am back where my journey began.

Two situations in the last few years show how habits and ignorance of the truth can blur our vision. In 2022, the voters of Pennsylvania re-elected Tony DeLuca, and in 2024, New Jersey re-elected Donald Payne Jr. to another term. The problem is that both candidates were dead. They had died close to Election Day, and the ballots had already been printed to include their names. The voters robotically went to the polls, pulled the D lever, and never checked the pulse of their candidate. Joe Biden is still with us, but in November, millions of Democrats will cast their vote for Joe, and anyone can see he is as effective as DeLuca or Payne.

It may be disrespectful to compare Biden to two men who are deceased, but it is equally insulting for people on the left trying to convince America that Biden is as sharp as ever. This effort to hoodwink the voters starts with the First Lady, who should be charged with elder abuse and goes right through the staff, stopping at the worst Press Secretary of all time, Karine Jean-Pierre. The Bidens have also gotten the legacy media to abandon their principles and credibility once more to be complicit with this charade.

The Dems will turn out in November. Not the 81 million who put Joe in office, but there will be a good turnout. Real or not will be the question. He will have the Pro-Choice crowd and the Anti-Supreme Court fanatics, but he has lost a lot of the female, Black, and Spanish votes. They are the smart ones who realize the Dems have left them behind for their new love, the illegals. Can they get enough of the old-school Democrats to offset the momentum of the Trump Train? I don’t think so, and I pray not.
