Who Will Be the Hero of the Story This Year?

Coming to the end of 2021 I think the most compelling story this year was Kyle Rittenhouse.  Here was a kid who had everything going against him going into his murder trial.  But against all odds every single thing broke in his favor and he was acquitted on all counts.  The moral of this story wasn’t charge into the lion’s den and fear no evil.  I guess message must be that God sometimes intervenes and saves the innocent from his own rash behavior.  Rittenhouse is a feel-good story but it isn’t representative of any plan for dealing with crime or civil unrest.  It’s more like one of those stories about a kitten being rescued from a very tall tree.  Heartwarming?  Surely.  But more of a cautionary tale than a blueprint.

But maybe this will be a year with a hero’s tale.  The wind has definitely shifted in our favor and with a little bit of luck we may get a big win for our side this year.  Maybe the Supreme Court steps up and decides the abortion case and the gun case in our favor.  That would be a big win.

A better case would be if in a couple of weeks, the Supreme Court permanently shuts down the vaccine mandate.  Now that would be a shot in the arm (no pun intended).  And while they’re at it, stop the mask nonsense too.  All of this COVID fascism is the worst kind of tyranny and letting it go on makes a mockery of our supposed freedoms.

But what I’d really like to see is some kind of Red State Convention where the leaders of these freer states sit down together and establish policies to allow them to coordinate their actions and effectively resist all of the federal programs and policies that victimize Americans.  The biggest thing would be to come up with an effective way to gather up the illegal aliens that Biden is dumping in the heartland and deliver them to Washington and New York and Boston and California and all the other sanctuary cities and states where they are allegedly so welcome.  They could coordinate policies around the Democrat controlled cities in their states to counteract the lawlessness and dysfunction that’s rampant in these jurisdictions.  And they can craft business policy to foster more manufacturing jobs from employers.  They can punish those companies that have gone offshore with their manufacturing jobs and reward those who bring new jobs here.  Tax policy can act as both a carrot and a stick.  Look for instance at how jobs from California are migrating to Texas and Florida.

So that’s where I’m hoping to see some things to cheer for this year.  Waiting for the midterms in November isn’t a very inspiring message.  That’s almost a whole year away and really is a limited accomplishment.  After all, it’s not as if it would be a veto proof majority that could legislate.  It only takes some of the weapons out of Dementia Joe’s feeble hands.

So that’s my New Year wish.  I’d love to see Governors DeSantis and Abbott and their colleagues sit down together and take the first steps to building a better world for their citizens.  Dream big.

The paragraph beginning “But what I’d really like to see is some kind of Red State Convention…” almost sounds like the beginning of a “Declaration of Separation”. 2022
could be quite an adventure.
