How Big is the Post America Contingent?

The present civil war pits all the groups that think America is evil against all the normal Americans who believe in the country that saved the world from all the insanities that raged against humanity in the twentieth century.  It defeated fascism, Nazism, socialism, bolshevism, Maoism and all the other isms that attempted to enslave mankind.  Now the stupidest version of communism, Bernie Bro-ism, is being used as a club by the Clinton-Bush-Obama gang to destroy the country in an orgy of imbecility.

But it has to be admitted that the millennials are willing dupes, the most useful of idiots, swallowing the lies that the intersectional politburo has cobbled together and enthusiastically supporting if not actually leading the charge in the street theater that currently afflicts the urban centers of almost every American city.  These are the children of the Baby Boomers.  They were foolishly but mostly innocently handed over to the ministrations of the America-hating teachers, professors, college resident advisors and human resource assistants who have filled their heads with self-hatred and contempt for the greatest nation that has ever arisen on this planet.

How big is this contingent?  I’ll say that it is the majority of that generation.  In addition to this cohort we can add in all the grievance groups.  This includes feminists of all stripes, all of the LGBTQ, 85% to 90% of the black population, a majority of the Hispanic population, and a good chunk of the rest of the minority groups currently found in the country.  Interestingly, a proportion of that Hispanic population seems to be up for grabs.  The more prosperous and the socially conservative members of the group don’t really feel comfortable with the radical ideology of the far left and rightly believe that tearing down the country is not in their children’s best interests.  I would also include in this category the Indian and Chinese and other Asian groups that came to America to partake in the prosperity and stability of the American system.  Many of these people have seen the rioters destroying the lives of small business owners and they have seen the school systems of these cities destroyed by eliminating the recognition of excellence.  It is possible over the course of a decade or two that these will be the new cohort of the right but it will require a different type of Republican to make that case convincingly and not the spineless open borders fools who play right into the hands of the Amerca-haters.

And the final portion of the Post Americans are the Cloud People and their minions in corporate America.  The very rich and the managerial class have made common cause with the woke Post Americans and pay obeisance to the rioters and use their allies in the media to try to convince everyone else that resistance is futile.

So does this equal 270 electoral votes worth of Post Americans?  Interestingly, probably not!  As much as the Left has been trumpeting their demographics is destiny jazz for thirty years it seems that they haven’t quite dragged themselves over the finish line just yet.  What will be especially interesting to see is whether their share of the millennial vote actually sinks below what they got in 2016.  After all, I have to imagine even the brain-dead millennials have to be disturbed by an actual insurrection being played out in real time in their neighborhoods while the city governments sit back and let it happen.  This is not to say that it will stop most of them from backing it but just maybe the smarter ones will see through the doublespeak.

In places like New York, California and Illinois it should be an ironclad policy of the federal government to withhold any funding to pay for the repair of the damage that the local governments allowed in their urban centers.  This along with the destruction of the small and not so small businesses that were pushed over the edge to bankruptcy by the rioting and the COVID shutdowns should be the price these states should be forced to pay.  That type of reality check will give their voters something to think about.  Because going forward it is important to remember that if the Left is shown by the results of the election to have overplayed their hand then consolidating the votes of those who swing back to our side is the first order of business.  Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota are ground zero for recapturing America.  And not just for the presidential election.  Taking senate seats, house seats and governorships are part of what it will take to begin changing the way Americans think about their country.  They have to be made to understand that in a real way we are in a war.  And the violence and chaos they have seen on the streets will reinforce that understanding and only when they elect men who will protect them from violence and intimidation will they get back the sense of stability and safety that was the norm in America for over a hundred years.

So, the answer to the title question is that the Post America contingent is pretty damn big but not quite big enough to take over if we stand up and stop them.  Don’t forget to vote this November and bring your conservative friends along if they need a ride.

Defund the Universities

This article aligns with my own feelings on the subject.  The universities are hotbeds of anti-Americanism.  Why should our tax dollars be used to fund their hatred of us?  Starving them of funds is the perfect solution to weakening antifa and BLM.  Let these revolutionaries look for real jobs.  While we’re at it we should send a contingent of BLM to burn down Harvard, Yale and the other Ivies.  They’ve got plenty of statues to offend the savages.  We would lose nothing and gain a great deal.




07JUL2020 – Battlefield Report

One thing that can be said for open war.  It provides moral clarity.  Once the barbarians have begun looting and burning, all but the truly certifiable lunatics stop talking about reaching common ground and start talking about guns and ammo.

The lower echelons of the urban elite are starting to get nervous about their vulnerability to roving mobs.  They’re asking their right-wing friends, the ones that have them anyway, how exactly you go about obtaining a gun.  The ones that only have leftists for friends will have to ask Siri or Alexa.  That should be an interesting lecture on gun control.

The major cities with their handcuffed police departments and Democrat mayors are begging the gang-bangers to stop shooting little kids.  Funny how that doesn’t seem to have much effect on hardened criminals without the threat of arrest.  The murders during June skyrocketed and we can only assume that the long hot summer will provide little in the way of relief.  Now you would think that all this dysfunction would get a bunch of Republicans elected as mayors.  But you would be wrong. Places like Atlanta and Chicago will keep voting in Democrats until their cities turn into Detroit.

The idiot leftists have now started to tear down statues of black heroes like Frederick Douglass.  Can we assume that MLK and Malcolm X are next?  Honestly, the true stupidity of these people must be breath taking.  We are dealing with paleolithic levels of social ignorance.  How do these people even survive from day to day?

All this is very interesting but the important question is how this should be handled by the President over the summer and fall to provide the maximum opportunity for a teachable moment for voters who suddenly aren’t so sure that electing Bill de Blasio or Jacob Frey was such a good idea after all.

I linked to that article about Minnesota’s governor asking President Trump to declare Minneapolis a national disaster area to allow $500 million worth of damage from the looting and burning to be paid for by the federal government.  I’m guessing that the answer to that one should be no.

And how about New York City?  The looting alone must have been hundreds of millions of dollars of losses and the arson damage to mid-town Manhattan property would be an astronomical sum.  I’d have to go with no on this one too.

Seattle?  St. Louis?  Atlanta?  Baltimore?  Chicago?  Los Angeles?  Funny thing, we’re batting a thousand here.  All no!  Anyplace where a mayor and or a governor decided to stand the police force down and just let the mob loot and burn, I’d say was a clear-cut case of government abandonment of public safety.  Those places need to impeach their elected officials and then elect someone who won’t allow the mob to run riot.

But in reality, no amount of contrition will help.  These cities are ungovernable.  As long as you have a culture that subsidizes hundreds of thousands of people who don’t work, you’ll find votes for the party handing out the welfare money.  And when these people don’t consider themselves Americans then you will have a mob ready to riot when the excuse surfaces.  It’s probably realistic to assume that these places are destined to become like Detroit.  If that is the case it is best to figure out how to manage that situation instead of pretending, we can fix them.

What President Trump has to do is provide the country with a vision of how the productive and law-abiding sections of the country can avoid being victimized by the non-productive and criminal elements.  He’ll need to target BLM and antifa and dismantle them.  Unfortunately, this will require AG William Barr to do something constructive and in less than a decade which currently doesn’t seem to be his strong suit.  But it has to be done.  The hard working and long-suffering people of this country are exhausted from all this chaos.  We’ve had enough.  And we don’t want to hear that all this is our fault.  We don’t believe that anymore.  If a criminal like George Floyd was murdered by a criminal cop then the cop should be treated just the way Floyd was.  He should have his day in court and then probably spend several decades in prison.  But if the mob decides that this is an excuse to burn down their city then it is up to the city to stop them with force, up to and including lethal force.  If they won’t then any normal individual will reason that these cities are war zones and only a fool would live and raise a family in a place like that.

This should be an interesting week.

2020 Choice – Stand or Grovel

This election will be the perfect indicator of whether or not we have been overwhelmed by the rot that has beset our institutions for the last hundred years.  A starker choice could not be imagined.  The foaming-at-the-mouth Left has dropped the mask completely.  They have embraced the mob in all its nihilistic rage and unleashed it on the citizens of the blue states and the blue cities.  Seattle has gone as far as setting up a killing zone in their capitol where the mob patrols with machine guns and doles out death to the black lives that supposedly they are representing.  It’s like something out of Pol Pot.

If the election does go to Biden you can argue whether voter fraud, or dislike of President Trump by white women or demographics was the deciding factor but what will be undeniable is that a new nation will be dominant inside the geographic boundaries of what used to be America.  The millennials will soon be the dominant cohort within the American demographic and if they decide that what is going on in the streets of our cities is acceptable then nothing will deflect us from the course that the Left is plotting.

So let’s take it one step further, even if President Trump wins this election but only just barely, that still tells me that we are changing for the worse.  What happened in 1968, the rioting and the arson, was still an aberration that shocked the country and galvanized the population to support a law and order candidate in President Nixon, to clean up the problem.  If we don’t see the same reaction to the even more disturbing violence and anarchy gripping our cities this year then it speaks of a loss of will.

Someone might say that it is the propaganda by the media and the kowtowing by the corporations that is misleading Americans.  That these normal people have been fooled by the narrative that the rioting is a reasonable reaction to systemic racism in the police and in American society.  But that is nonsense.  Only someone already brainwashed by the Left could mistake what is happening for reasonable.  Anyone with even a trace of self-respect and an iota of common sense would see what’s happening as an attack on the foundations of our identity and the symbols of the greatest and best country in the history of mankind.

If we do not see a resounding victory for the Right then we are heading down a road to serfdom.  It is possible that through the efforts of a Trump administration we can begin to change direction and change the institutions that have brought about this problem.  With the right Supreme Court and with legislation and enforcement by the DOJ many harmful practices could be suppressed.  But with the current slender majority in the Senate and the Democrat majority in the House and the unreliable nature of the Supreme Court it seems unlikely that much will be done.

So that is why I see this election as a barometer.  If President Trump wins a decisive victory and we pick up seats in the Senate and retake the majority in the House then I see a sliver of hope that there is still enough of the silent majority to allow us to try and turn this thing around together as the United States of America.  If that happens, we stand.  Anything else tells me that the future will require groveling and that is something I won’t stick around for.

Minnesota Wants Federal Money to Rebuild Minneapolis

Minnesota’s Governor Walz has requested President Trump to declare a national disaster and bail out Minnesota to the tune of $500 million for the damage which he himself caused when he allowed the rioting thugs to burn down Minneapolis.

I think the correct response is to respectfully ask Governor Walz to go pound sand where the sun don’t shine.  The first thing that should be done is to cut off all federal police funding to Minneapolis and institute a DOJ investigation into the civil rights violations inherent in a city knowingly allowing a mob to terrorize American citizens based on their racial identity.

Anti-White Lives Do Not Matter to Me

For the first half of my life I had hoped that eventually black Americans would become reconciled with their country and we would reach a point where we wouldn’t have the periodic race riots and looting/arson sprees that seem to be occurring more and more frequently.

I no longer believe that to be true.  There will never be a time when a black underclass will not be ready, willing and able to erupt in a spasm of destructive rage that destroys everything in their reach and allows the race hustlers to extort more loot from the frightened people of this country.  It’s as simple as that.

How we eventually end this stalemate where we have to interact in this horrific dysfunctional relationship is currently unknown to me.  Maybe we split the country or maybe we figure out a way to end the black privilege that allows them to commit mayhem through some strict enforcement of the laws.  That is a mystery to me.

So, if this insanity will continue into the foreseeable future, then the most important thing for me to figure out is how to avoid being where the rioters are going to be.  By extension I want to make sure none of the people I care about are anywhere near the rioters either.

So, what should I do?  Here’s my checklist:

  • Live far away from large cities. And it doesn’t matter whether it’s a city in Oklahoma or in New York.  Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, St. Louis, Kansas City?  Of course.  But even Salt Lake City or Boise probably have their slums where the denizens are smoldering over some perceived slight that they imagine white people have inflicted on them.  Give all these cities a wide berth.
  • Don’t live in blue or purple states. Because in these states, even if you’re far from the slums, the government will allow the rioters to come to your town to destroy your way of life.  Look at Minnesota.  The governor there wouldn’t even stop the rioters from hopping into cars and going out to the suburbs to terrorize the people out there.  The government in these states seem to take pride in punishing the non-black citizens by allowing them to be harassed.
  • Don’t send your kids to the public schools. Don’t let the state propagandize them and torture them into thinking they’re the problem.  Allowing this to happen is like crippling them.
  • Tell your children the real truth about how the system is rigged in this country and how they can avoid being victimized by the next round of rampages. Explain to them that the Democrat party gins up this outrage every election cycle to ensure a good crop of black votes.  Let them know that there are many people who buy into this white self-hatred but they themselves don’t have to.
  • Find like minded people to associate with and avoid as much as possible the company of the anti-white individuals. Make a point of doing business with folks that you know are like-minded.  And in addition to patronizing tradesmen like plumbers and electricians, which is a no-brainer, look at retailers.  I’d pay a hefty premium to give my business to someone I like rather than give Jeff Bezos the money.
  • If you’re religious find a church where the pastor doesn’t spend his time preaching the gospel of social justice according to Saint Al Sharpton. You’re better off starting your own church rather than let your children be indoctrinated in self-hatred by some atheist clergyman who wants to atone for some ancestor who owned a slave or something.

Our elites have adopted the Black Lives Matter agenda.  More precisely they’ve decided to impose it on their serfs, namely us.  They themselves will just continue living in their gated communities with their private security out of reach of the arson, looting and mayhem that they’ve reserved for us.  They have adopted the Black Lives Matter mantra.  And that mantra says, “Only Black Lives Matter.”  If you say blue lives matter or white lives matter or even all lives matter, you will be denounced as a racist.  So, don’t be foolish enough to think that any of this has anything at all to do with equal treatment.  That is the last thing they want.  What they want is immunity from the law.  In fact, they want their own law.  And rest assured under that law everything you have won’t be enough to provide reparations for whatever alleged sins your ancestors committed against their ancestors.  And that is assuming that your ancestors were even in the country before 1865 which mine were not.

The lives that matter to me are those of me and mine and my friends.  They can be white, orange or purple but to me they are the ones that matter.  The lives that don’t matter to me are Anti-White lives.  Let the antifa and BLM thugs burning down the country worry about their own lives.  White or black, I no longer consider them countrymen.  They are my enemy.  Their lives matter to me not at all.  As far as I’m concerned, they can go to hell.

A White Cop in a Black City

That Atlanta cop who shot the black guy who shot at him with a taser is being charged with murder.  Think about what that job must be like nowadays.  The criminals and the low lives won’t allow themselves to be arrested anymore.  They’ll fight you, try to get your gun and if you do your job or defend yourself, you’ll be charged with murder if the perp dies.  You have to wear a camera all the time and any altercation that gets ugly leaves you liable to police brutality charges and disciplinary actions.  The brazenness of the criminals means you stand a good chance of being shot or stabbed or assaulted in some fashion and the black population hates and insults you at every turn.  Your food will be poisoned in fast food joints by the minimum wage employees from the neighborhood and your chain of command and the mayor will turn on you at the drop of a hat and feed you to the sharks.

So, you might ask yourself why would anyone want to be a white cop in a black city.  The short answer is it used not to be this bad.  And that has been true forever.  The cities have been getting progressively worse over the course of the last century but we have now reached the breaking point.  Places like Baltimore, St. Louis, Kansas City and Atlanta have finally reached the point where the cop’s job is untenable.

Why don’t they quit?  Well the pay is good; the benefits are very good and the retirement is excellent.  Some cops can retire at twenty years in.  That means you could be thirty-eight and retiring on full pay.  Plus, if you quit now what would you do?  Your family is local.  Your kids are in school in a suburb and you have roots in the community.  What job would pay anything close to what you currently make?  You want to stay.  But how to avoid ending up in jail?

What I expect to see from now on is cops ignoring all black crime.  I’m not even sure they’ll intervene in a gang shootout.  They’ll just wait for the two sides to run out of bullets and call the ambulances to collect the ones who didn’t avoid the flying lead.  And this probably will hold for black criminals in white neighborhoods.  And that will hasten the white flight that is already gripping the cities that recently went through the riots.  I’ve spoken to Manhattanites who tell me that the middle-class people are looking to get out.  The way it was explained to me the rich don’t care because they are completely insulated from the impact.  They have their own schools and security arrangements and if things get really bad, they’ll just stay out at their homes in the Hamptons until the violence blows over.  But the middle class have none of these buffers.  So, they’re leaving.  And when they do the city starts sinking.  The tax base will disappear and city services will suffer drastic cuts and then even the rich will leave.  And once that happens you get Detroit.

I only hope no more white guys become cops in black cities.  Let the guys in there get out as soon as they can and then let the jobs be filled by black city dwellers.  That will be the perfect solution.  I guarantee that the denizens won’t like it much.  The criminals won’t be able to yell racism and the black cops won’t worry about police brutality.  But the honest citizens will be the ones to pity.  The levels of corruption and incompetency in black run cities are usually impressive.  Baltimore is on their second mayor convicted of financial crimes associated with the office and I believe the next mayor will be one of those two coming back for another try.  Detroit politics are so laughably corrupt that Michigan had to step in and oversee much of their finances.  And the school systems are truly frightening in their dysfunction.

But the best outcome in Atlanta would be for the whole police force to resign en masse.  Within a month there wouldn’t be a single business unlooted in the whole city.  The murder rate would be so high that the people tallying it would give it up as unmanageable.  And Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms would beg the police on bended knee to come back.  She would somehow have the officer who was arrested for murder cleared of the charge and reinstated.

That would be the best outcome for Atlanta.  But it would not be the best outcome for those policemen.  Their jobs will never be anything but hellish.  They should get out and stay out.  These cities are unmanageable and will only get worse.  Let the people there manage themselves.  Let the Democrats rule all the Detroits they are making.  After all, White Lives Matter too.  At least to us they do.

What Are the Priorities for Us in the New America of Neil Gorsuch, BLM and Antifa?

So here we are, the newly minted super-conservative Justice Gorsuch finds transgender rights in the Constitution of the United States.  And under the reliably spineless leadership of John Roberts every major case from illegal immigrants to Second Amendment rights were dynamited against us.  And there was absolutely no fig leaf for any of these decisions.  The Supreme Court is a disaster.  I no longer expect any relief from that Court.

Add onto this problem that Antifa and BLM are now the official enforcement wing of the Democrat party.  In any jurisdiction federal, state or local where they have cover from Democrat elected officials, they are shown to be ready, willing and able to wage literal war up to and including murder and arson against their enemies.  Living in a blue state or even a blue city is tantamount to living in Mao’s Cultural Revolution.  At any time, you can be sucked into a purge or pogrom that really has no limits on what can happen.  Your rights in these jurisdictions do not exist as such.  They can be overridden with no notice and are subject to amendment whenever circumstances make the ruling coalition think they would benefit from it.

Those are the conditions on the ground.  Where does that leave us?

From my point of view that precludes certain strategies.  With the clarification of the role of the Supreme Court I would say any idea that unconstitutional actions will be struck down nationally and thereby benefit people living in blue states is sheer fantasy.  Nothing will be done to restrain places like California, New England, or New York.  They will just make things continually worse until you knuckle under and learn to love Big Brother or leave.

I suppose there are strategies to hide in plain sight in places like these.  I know people who say they can avoid the consequences of living under these regimes and still enjoy life.  I confess I do not possess the coping skills that must be needed to hide your feelings when living in the belly of the beast.  My daily interactions here in New England with the true believers involve mind boggling levels of cognitive dissonance.  It takes every ounce of self-control not to laugh in their faces or explain why the things being claimed are patently absurd.

The alternative then is to revolt against these laws.  Ignoring them or avoiding them by stealth is becoming harder and harder in these places.  Ultimately control over all aspects of life is becoming more stringent everywhere but especially in these blue states.  To the extent that it can be done I suppose that will be the strategy for conservatives living in these areas.  You will have to go underground.  And this means as far as raising children you’ll have to figure out how to work around the indoctrination of the schools and other social settings that the Left has taken over.  This is the Benedict Option that Rod Dreher has talked about.  Ultimately, it’s a temporary measure because eventually they will eliminate freedom of religion entirely.

But from my point of view, the best idea is to live in a deep red state where the political leaders have the means to craft laws that protect their citizens from the unconstitutional consequences of the Supreme Court.  They can make a law upholding the freedom of religion in the Bill of Rights and when the Supreme Court strikes it down the Governor can defy the Supreme Court and say he will protect any of his citizens from federal prosecution.  I could see blanket pardons being handed out on a rolling basis and the bureaucrats in Washington spinning out of control as the President refuses to step in.

A number of states following a plan like this would eventually produce a situation on the ground where essentially you would have two legal entities hidden within one name.  This is sort of like the situation we currently have with marijuana use.  At the federal level and in half of the states it is illegal but in states like California and Colorado it is big business.  The same thing should be pushed as hard as possible for as many different parts of the law as possible.  Just as things like sanctuary cities and legalization of drugs have been dispiriting for our side, freedom of religion would be very dispiriting for them.  It would even have an impact on migration of leftists into red states.  If there weren’t the lifestyle protections available to them, they would be much less likely to inhabit these areas.

So essentially what I am saying is that the deep red states are the only remaining points of resistance to the encroachment of Leftist control.  Everything else has already been conquered.  They will need to be the catalyst for change and that can only happen in conjunction with the four-year protection provided by the beginning of a conservative President’s term.

Hopefully a revolt at the state level will begin and President Trump’s second term will provide that needed protection.

Minneapolis City Council Says They Will Dismantle the Police

Nine members of the Minneapolis City Council, a veto-proof majority, have announced that they intend to eliminate the Minneapolis Police Department.  The idea is to replace the police department with a “community-based public safety model,” whatever that is.

Realistically I don’t think they’ll do much of anything beyond handing over a ton of cash to “community organizers” and tying the police force’s hands on lethal force and hiring more minority and female cops.  But let’s just imagine what may happen if the police become so angry about all this vilification and decide to stop interfering with the underclass not only in the ‘hood but also everywhere else.

I can just see an enterprising young businessman from the mean streets who notices that Mayor Frey has a pretty nice wardrobe of Armani suits and decides to pay a visit to the mayor’s house to “borrow” them for a while.  I imagine that previously the mayor would have had a detail of police whose only job was to provide 24/7 security to hizzoner.  I’m guessing that security may become just a wee bit more relaxed after this.  And what might be the situation for the nine City Council members who have announced their intention to eliminate the police.  Well, I’ve got to tell you, I wouldn’t want to be them after today.  The police really are the ones who make life in a big city possible.  If you turn them against you, I foresee many, many bad things happening to the people threatening their livelihood.  Remember for a minute that there are always a certain number of bad actors on the police force and they’ve just lost their steady gig and they are pretty handy with a gun.  Now add in that there isn’t any police force to stop them and they know you were the one who got them fired.  It doesn’t sound good.

You know, come to think of it, I really think they should vote on this thing right away.  I’d be interested in seeing what happens when the police department has a ninety percent sick week in Minneapolis.  It might actually outdo the recent riots for destructive result.  And the timing is perfect.  The long hot summer and the COVID-19 depression are both right there to make a bad situation into a living hell.  When the first wave of teenagers robs its first department store and realize that no one is going to stop them they’re going to get a rush of excitement that may not let up until they’ve looted every store for a mile around.  And that’s not even considering how exciting it’s going to get when the young thugs who currently practice the knockout game in their inner-city neighborhoods export it to the better neighborhoods like Fulton.  Once the self-righteous citizens of Minneapolis get a real good look at what happens when you tell the underclass that there is no one there to make them stop they’re gonna beg the cops to come back and they’ll pay them double without a thought.  Unless you live in a gated community with round the clock armed guards you really don’t want to let the mob have its way.

But let’s see whether it’s all talk or not.  It would make for an interesting experiment but not a pretty picture.  Let’s call it a teachable moment.

It’s the End of the World as We Know It and I Feel Fine?

Well not exactly.  This morning I woke up feeling pretty bleak.  Antifa and BLM have flushed untold billions of dollars and thousands of American businesses down the drain with their orgy of theft and destruction.  Multiple lives have been lost in rioting to somehow make up for the single life that this was all supposed to be about.  Governors and Mayors in the blue states are passing this whole thing off as a justifiable reaction.  The usual suspects in the media are cheerleading the mayhem and somehow blaming everything on the President.  It sounds like I might have a reason to be down.

But I thought about it a little.  There is precious little other than blogging about it that I can do.  Nobody I know has been burned out of his home or business, so far, and the fallout from all this madness should result in the Democrats losing a bunch of elections in a bunch of places.  Possibly this will help to clarify in a lot of people’s minds what it means to put the far left in charge of your lives.  If it does maybe it will be a net positive for the country.  After all Donald Trump was elected partly as a reaction to the BLM atrocities under Obama.  So that gives me a reason to be patient while the madness plays out.  I can look forward to a change for the better.

And let’s play devil’s advocate and suppose that instead the country decides to knuckle under to Antifa and BLM and elects the whole leftist crew who then initiate the entire “destroy America agenda.”  Well as bad as that would be, and it indeed would be the end of the world as we know it, it would also clarify my place in the world completely.  It would essentially end the need for me to wait for things to improve.  After all, if you take freedom out of America, you remove the original advantage that everyone came here for in the first place.  Then my mission becomes relatively simple, find the place where I have the best chance of enjoying life.  Maybe it’ll be Oklahoma or Mississippi, Idaho or Wyoming.  I’ll be depending on local conditions to make life tolerable.  I can try to remove myself from as many of the systems that the government has built up to control us and try to find a community that thinks like I do.  At least in a place like that you might have some like-minded people around you.  Who knows, you might be able to join a rebellion of our own.

So yeah, there are a lot of scary things going on and faith in my fellow Americans is at an all time low.  But they have until November to restore my faith in them.  If they do the right thing and re-elect the President and toss out a bunch of commies who backed Antifa and BLM then we have a chance to straighten things out here.  It will still take decades to repair the damage that has already been done.  The American people have been sorely harmed by the policies that the Democrats and Republicans inflicted on us over the last fifty years.  But if the people choose wisely then we can get started.  If not, then I’ll take care me and mine and anyone else I find who feels he’s in the same boat.  I’ll look around and see where the deck isn’t stacked against me and I’ll shake off the dust of my feet and leave a place that doesn’t have a place for me.

So, I may not feel fine but I have plans for all eventualities.
