The 2020 election is beginning to come underway.
Democrats are coming out of the woodwork for their chance to take on President Trump.
And Trump’s top challenger in 2020 just called for a new world order.
So far, very few Democrats have officially announced their campaigns for president in 2020.
The most well-known to come forward is Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
But even with her campaign beginning, there are undeclared candidates already doing better in the polls.
One of the candidates taking a surprising lead in some polls is former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke.
O’Rourke is only in the national spotlight due to his unsuccessful campaign to take out Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
He was able to raise a massive $80 million in a race that gave Democrats hope of doing the unthinkable, and winning a statewide race in Texas.
But it seems that his race has never been about winning in Texas, instead it seems as though he was attempting a dry run for the presidency.
The state of Texas is massive and has a population only second to California.
In his race, he was able to lay out infrastructure similar to how candidates generally campaign in early primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire.
And after losing, O’Rourke had a personal meeting with former President Barack Obama, a move that reportedly infuriated the former Vice President, and expected contender for president, Joe Biden.
So now O’Rourke seems to be moving into full campaign mode, participating in a number of interviews where he has hinted at it.
But in a more recent interview, he also hinted at something more menacing.
Speaking to the Washington Post, he was discussing whether America will be able to solve its own problems the way things are now.
O’Rourke then answers the question in a shocking fashion:
“Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships … and security agreements in every continent, can it still be managed by the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago?”
The “principles” he seems to be referring to are the ones laid in the U.S. Constitution.
It is the document that has been restraining the government and ensuring personal liberty and national sovereignty for generations.
Countless Americans have laid down their lives to protect those “principles” that O’Rourke seems to think are outdated.
The Constitution is also what holds together the very fabric of our country, and the only thing that protects us from falling into the same growing global tyranny enveloping virtually every other nation in the world.
Removing those principles opens up a massive can of worms that can destroy the unique freedoms held exclusively in the United States.
This statement is by far the most extreme statement to come from O’Rourke, who in recent weeks has been facing criticism from some Democrats for being too moderate.
But maybe statements like this are his way to signal to Democrats that he’s on board with their far-left agenda.
His “moderate” positions may have been a ruse to begin with, considering that he is in Texas, where voters largely reject the far-left.
After all, trying to deceive voters isn’t foreign to a man that goes by “Beto” in order to make voters think he’s Hispanic.
Do you think that O’Rourke can beat Trump in 2020?
