As I’ve made clear since the 2022 mid-terms, I no longer expect the Republicans to be able to win the presidency or majorities in congress for the foreseeable future, if ever. But that’s not the same as just surrendering to the progressive agenda. I still think there’s a chance that red state governments may take effective measures to protect their citizens from the evils that the federal government is rolling out even as we speak.
So, what this leaves me to do is contemplate what measures I should take as an individual to insulate myself and my family from the worst of the damage. And this is the correct strategy. It’s time to stop imagining we’re going to re-take the federal government. The Democrats gamed the system so thoroughly and for so long that it’s next to impossible for the Stupid Party to win. And, honestly, I’m pretty sure they don’t want to. So, the correct mindset is to identify and perform the activities that you can in order to make the best life for you and yours.
And this is not a small thing. The benefits you can produce and the problems you can prevent are enormous. Basically, what you are doing is wrenching back under your control things that the progressives have stolen away from you via school-based propaganda and unconstitutional government actions. You have to intervene either personally or through private groups or both to produce the outcomes you desire. And you want to put yourself in places where there are more people that agree with you, people who can be allies and possibly friends.
So, let’s look at some of the examples of things that could be done.
Here’s one of the biggest impacts you can have on your life. If you send your children to the public schools and don’t involve yourself in what they are being taught then you deserve to be called a member of the Stupid Party. The first step is to find out what they’re being taught. Request to see the lesson plans and syllabus for your children’s classes. Pay attention to both important subjects like math and science and also the soft subjects like social studies and language. Find out how extreme the problems are and decide whether it’s possible to allow the children to remain there. Maybe by talking to your kids about the nature of the disinformation they are being fed you can inoculate them from the damage. If there isn’t a way to change the worst of it then you must get your kids out. Maybe this means sending them to a private or religious school. Maybe it’s possible for them to be home schooled. But whichever way you affect a change you are probably performing the most important service you can for your children.
- Local Politics
Believe it or not, even in a deep blue state there are things that you can do to improve the local environment. At the very least, when you are looking to move to a new home or get a new job look at the complexion of the community you are considering. Without a doubt there are better and worse choices to choose from. You can look at the voting record of your town. You can read up on the referenda that the town has voted on over the last few years. You can look for the telltale signs of a small town being invaded by the refugees from the local progressive stronghold. Look at the local test scores of the schools and just look around for what kind of signs the town and the local businesses put up. If you find yourself surrounded by BLM and rainbow banners then think hard and long about moving there.
Find out if there’s a local Republican Town Committee and go to a few meetings and listen to what they talk about. Hear what priorities they have. Ask a few pointed questions about any recent progressive initiatives like low-cost housing or DIE programs. Figure out if you’ll be in the minority or the majority politically. And consider getting involved on a town committee if you have the expertise or the interest. Finance, zoning and budget committees are especially useful. Get to know your neighbors and let them know you. That’s how you find allies and maybe friends. Hiding your head in the sand is how we got in this mess in the first place.
Alright I’ll stop at two for this first part. But you get the point. Grabbing hold of your life is the only way to limit the damage the progressives do to you and your family. Applying this strategy across the whole length and breadth of your life is how you take control and deny the Evil Party from ruining your world.
