Steve Schmidt: An election away from losing the country to people who no longer believe in democracy

2 min read

Steve Schmidt as he always does hits the nail on the head. Even with a 7 million vote Biden lead, we almost lost our democracy.

Steve Schmidt reveals an unfortunate truth

See full episodes here.

Steve Schmidt did not mince his words when as a former Republican he made the following profound statement.

“The competition in American politics is now between a Democratic Party,” Steve Schmidt said. “Meaning a party that believes in democracy versus an autocratic party. Then we've never seen that when you see that many members of congress breaking faith with their oath to overturn an election because they don't like a result, we're off the reservation to a place that we might not be able to get back on it from and so it's a very worrying moment. And what it means is now we're one, we're one election away from losing the country to people who no longer believe in democracy.”

In effect, Schmidt has acknowledged that the Democratic Party is the only viable and sensible party given the state of the two-party system. And that is a shame. Monopolies of any kind are not wise, even if initially benevolent. We need robust competition of ideas.
