(Liberty Bell) – Something you don’t often hear the obviously Democrat controlled mainstream media talk about is how many folks have jumped ship during Trump’s administration, leaving behind the ways of the Democratic Party to fully embrace the principles of the GOP after seeing what their own party, which has been hijacked by progressive radicals, really wants to do to this country.
The reason they don’t want you to hear of stories like that is because, much like hearing a Christian’s testimony about Christ, it could lead to others converting, and that’s the last thing the Democratic Party wants to happen. No, they want to keep folks comfortable right where they are, dedicated to voting for the same old party of big government, high taxes, and empty promises.
So when a person like Rep. Jeff Van Drew, a former Democrat from the very liberal state of New Jersey, comes out and gives President Donald Trump praise, you can guarantee it’s going to cause the left in the media and the Democratic Party to lose their minds.
According to BizPacReview, Van Drew actually praised Donald Trump and thank him for contributing the many gains of the Republican Party in last week’s election.
Van Drew, appearing on “Fox & Friends,” said, “It’s like, they have that saying, ripping the Band-Aid off and seeing what’s underneath.”

“[Trump] did that and he showed the seamy side, quite frankly, of politics,” the former Democrat added.
Van Drew’s decision to leave the Democratic Party was due mostly to the fact that folks in his party wanted him to vote for impeachment, whether he really believed the president was guilty of the crimes he was being accused of or not. Van Drew noted that one of the county chairmen that if he wanted to move forward in his political career, he’d have to vote to impeach.
He met with President Trump who encouraged him to switch parties, which he did shortly thereafter.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is what the Democratic Party is really like. It’s not enough to be loosely liberal. You have to be in total lockstep with their complete and total agenda. Every single talking point. If you aren’t, then they’ll oppose you, work to “cancel” you. Shoot, with friends like that, who needs enemies, right?
Van Drew later on noted how Trump has created a new GOP, one that is far more concerned with getting to know the average working person and building a relationship with them.
“This new Republican Party is about really having that relationship with the average, everyday person, with real people, making sure that we have government that works for them, that we don’t just keep increasing taxes, that we don’t just keep pushing more and more programs that don’t really, in the end, help anybody but bureaucrats,” Van Drew stated.
This is very much the truth. Donald Trump exploded the whole paradigm of modern politics, which is precisely what this country desperately needed. The voices of average citizens weren’t being heard. Politicians only cared about making their own bank accounts fat rather than serving their constituents.
The president changed all that. The establishment in both parties loathes this change in the system they’ve leeched off of for years, which is why they want so desperately to be rid of Trump.
