(Dec. 22, 2020) — Ignore for a moment the topic of election fraud. Discount whatever number of votes you think were fraudulently cast in the 2020 Presidential election—200,000 votes, 2,000,000 votes, 20,000,000 votes, or perhaps even more.
The fact remains, however, that tens of millions of voters voted Democrat in the 2020 Presidential election.
Anyone who has ever seen the red/blue Presidential election maps by county knows that the highest concentration of Democratic votes is typically found in high-density urban areas. Conservative votes trend higher in low-density rural areas.
Today, more than four out of every five Americans live in urban areas. Such a high concentration of urban living wasn’t always the case. In 1790, only five percent of the American population lived in urban areas. By 1850, 15% of Americans were found in urban areas. By 1900, 40% and by 1950, 59%. 79% of Americans lived in an urban environment in 2000, and 81% in 2010.
Demographic trends dating back 230 years confirm a continuous shifting of the population, from rural living to urban. This unrelenting historical trend does not necessarily bode well for continued conservative thinking in our near future, as increasing percentages of Americans grow up apart from our historical roots and isolated from the Founders’ lifestyles. Today’s culture only worsens this underlying scenario.
In other words, absent strategies different from our past, it will arguably become increasingly difficult for conservatives to win elections in our [near] future, not even considering allegations of fraud.
This writer suggests it is way past time for conservatives to rethink strategies which have been failing us for a very long time, even as we refused to pay attention.
Continue to vote in elections, of course, and also work to clean up the voting process. But, voting and elections won’t be enough in our future, to secure our freedom under our Republic.
The proper starting point for rethinking future strategies is to reflect upon our country’s founding principles, for proper guidance.
