Giddy Democrats Think Twice

Reading Time: 4 minutes
Save America vote Donald J. Trump for President

In a curious phenomenon, many American men contemplate ancient Rome multiple times a day. However, this fascination appears lost on Democrats, who seem to dismiss history, likely due to its focus on the actions of long-gone white men. But disregarding history is a mistake. The decline of Rome, from its legendary founding by Romulus in 753 BC (note: I don’t subscribe to “BCE”) to its ultimate collapse in 476 AD when the Germanic warlord Odoacer ousted the last Roman emperor Romulus Augustulus, offers valuable lessons. While Rome’s trajectory isn’t an exact blueprint for America’s future, some undeniable echoes and rhythms resonate with our present circumstances for those wise enough to listen.

Democrats might reconsider their satisfaction over Trump’s legal ordeal in New York if they reflected on Rome’s historical blunders and recognized the potential long-term consequences of their actions. Caesar’s fateful crossing of the Rubicon, driven by the threat of legal persecution from his patrician adversaries, set off a chain of events that profoundly altered Rome. Similarly, the repercussions of the recent courtroom drama may not be immediate but will likely reverberate through our political system in the future.

Patriots are right to see this as a blow to the rule of law and a threat to our political integrity, but the true damage will unfold over time, possibly decades from now. The seeds of decay have been sown, and unless we address and eliminate these corrosive practices, they will continue to undermine our nation. America remains strong and may endure like the Roman Empire did, potentially for centuries. However, without addressing the harm inflicted by such political tactics, we risk the eventual demise of the country we cherish.

The Democrats might not be so giddy over the travesty of Trump’s ritual framing in New York City if they considered how it mirrors the mistakes of Rome and if they understood how their current course of action can lead to ashes and blood. After all, Caesar refused to lay down his legions and crossed the Rubicon because his patrician enemies were preparing to haul him into court the minute he did. We will feel the full impact of what happened in that kangaroo courtroom someday, but not today. Not even soon. When patriots pronounce this a disaster for the rule of law and a body blow to our political system, they are undoubtedly correct. Still, the real damage will manifest in the future, maybe even decades. The rot has set in and will continue spreading unless cut out and purged. America is still strong. It will stagger on, like the Roman Empire did, perhaps even for hundreds of years. But, if we do not repair the damage this lawfare and other assaults on our norms have done, it will eventually kill the country we love.

In summary, the recent legal actions against Trump in New York should give Democrats pause. Drawing parallels from ancient Rome, it’s clear that using the judiciary as a political weapon can have dire long-term consequences. History teaches us that such tactics sow the seeds of decay, threatening our political system’s rule of law and integrity. America, like Rome, may endure for centuries, but unless we address these corrosive practices, we risk the eventual collapse of the country we hold dear.
