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.
