As D3F1ANT commented yesterday “But saying this, again, is ALSO akin to standing on deck with water at your neck. We’ve known this for as long as we’ve known the ship is sinking.”
He’s right. There’s nothing more to say. We already know what must be done. But is there anyone willing to do it? Maybe a DeSantis or an Abbott is willing to take on Washington. I don’t know. I’m watching and hoping but I’m not sure.
So why do I post this stuff? I’m looking for other people who think like me. I want to be a part of anything that could help. And if it turns out that nothing will happen then I’m looking for a place to go. I’m looking for a corner of the world where I can go to live with people that are like me. It’s pretty awful in the blue states. You feel like a zoo animal and you get tired of being an outsider. One of these days I’ll convince Camera Girl that the grandkids can come visit us for a change.
So I talk to folks in other parts of the country where things aren’t as bad and I think about how I might fit in somewhere else. Florida, Texas, Utah, Idaho, Oklahoma, Arkansas. I think about lots of places where I could settle in and have neighbors and live in a town where my beliefs wouldn’t make me a pariah.
I write the political posts about what the latest outrage is from Dementia Joe or I talk about some positive result by a guy like DeSantis to keep my own spirits up. And I put up my entertainment posts on books and movies and anything I find interesting like photography. I try to do my part to provide something on-line that isn’t the garbage that the Left mandates. Sometimes it’s discouraging because there’s just bad news as far as the eye can see. But I think of what kind of odds there were against guys like Solzhenitsyn and Havel back in Russia and Czechoslovakia and I think things are nowhere near as bad here. And I feel it’s worthwhile to keep writing and holding out for some kind of breakthrough. Maybe somewhere someone will take a stand and give us all something to rally around. I think that someone will say no and then make it stick. And once it happens people will light a million fires and it will be too big for Washington to stamp them all out.
That’s what I hope will happen.
