    The biggest issue in the upcoming elections may not be our roaring economy or Trump's boorishness. Instead, it may be the blatant attempt by the Left in this country to reverse the result of the 2016 Presidential election. I have no idea how many people may care or even be aware of this issue, but has implications far beyond which political party controls the House of Representatives. Will we follow down the path of other "democracies" where the winning side routinely prosecutes and jails the losing side? Is this too deep a subject for Americans to consider?

    I hope not.

    The big issue in 2018 is who shows up to vote and why.

    It may be a big issue, but it will not be decisive. One-third of the country HATES Trump, one-third is angry at how he is being treated by the Media and the Democrats, and one third will be looking at the individual candidates and local issues. Reading the current tea leaves, it does not look like Trump & the Republicans are going to get much support for the economy. Most people think it was just time for things to pick up, after many years of anemic growth.

    But if Trump is removed from office we could have a civil war. Seriously. His supporters are armed.

    My guess is that the biggest issue of 2018 is how the Russians supposedly caused the Democrats to lose.

    What makes Liberals think that Conservatives will accept the election results if they lose? Liberals didn't last time.​

    For what? Words or actions? Form or substance?
