A Little Clarity

The post-election limbo has been going on now for a couple of months now and I realized today that I’ve been trying to figure out how I go forward.  I guess I’ve been waiting for a resolution to the election fraud.  But at this point I don’t think an external event is what is needed.  Well, sure, if the Senate votes to throw out the fraudulent states and declares President Trump the winner that would be a hell of an event.  There would be six months of uproar to write about and pitchforks and torches would be the accessories for all the best dressed revolutionaries.

But the externals would still be just the symptoms of the underlying problem and at this point addressing that problem also requires an internal solution.  What I mean is that I have to find a way to adapt to the reality of the world around me.  And this adaption for me means optimizing my ability to live the kind of life I want to by working around the system I’m embedded in.  And part of that life I want to live is contributing to the building up and expanding of organizations and individuals that believe in what I do.

And so, I can stop holding my breath waiting for the Supreme Court or the Senate Republicans or Mike Pence to save the day and free me from my jail cell here in the Gulag.  I’ll free myself.  I’ll take action to make this a better place for people like me by direct action.  Granted the action is miniscule.  My little blog and my family and small circle of friends is so small and insignificant that not even the trolls have found me yet.  Well almost none of them.  There have been a few minor eruptions.

But the actions that I do take are enormously important to my morale.  I don’t have to wait for the resolution of anything.  I don’t have to put my life on hold for a month or a week or even a single minute.  I can write my posts about things that I think are helpful and interesting to people right now.  Whether we prevail in this election or the Democrats are allowed to steal the presidency doesn’t change the fact that there is an enormous job ahead organizing the conservative people living within the former United States of America.  I’m actually more interested in finding the name of the most conservative Christian denominations in my area than I am about which RINOs will betray us this week at the Congressional Presidential Election Confirmation.

The reason that I am writing this is because when I figured these things out it provided clarity to my thinking and it actually made me much happier than I’ve been in months.  So, I hoped that maybe somebody out there reading this might find it helpful too.

I won’t forget about politics and all the mayhem that the Left is committing all around us.  I’ll still find plenty to say about all the outrages by the enemy and the occasional victories for our side.  But I want to spend just as much time talking about things that I can do or you can do to make things better and grow our community.  There’s nothing like direct action to erase a feeling of helplessness.  Think of this little explanation/pep-talk as my direct action for the day.

Here’s one you can get behind: From: Tim Anderson <tim@timforva.com> Subject: Zoom Town Hall Tomorrow at 830pm We have now watched 50 lawsuits be filed and fail challenging election results. Lawsuits are being thrown out on standing, failure to file a suit in the proper court, failure to have consent of named Plaintiffs to proceed. What is going on?  I have been practicing law for 21 years. I do not win every case. But when I am in a fight, I fight as hard as I can and minimize stupid mistakes. We are all human, but my God.. The case against… Read more »

As a starter, here is what Pew Research has determined regarding the more conservative churches… https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/02/23/u-s-religious-groups-and-their-political-leanings/ with an interesting interactive regarding religious beliefs…. https://www.pewforum.org/religious-landscape-study/ Places of worship may remain the last refuge, at least as long as enough judges are willing to support the First Amendment.
The only other thing I might say (from personal experience) is that the Ukrainian or Russian Orthodox Christian churches will likely be more conservative than the generic “Orthodox Christian” church indicated in the Pew Study.
