Looking at the people who run this country is a frightening thing. Washington DC is a train wreck. The White House and the Capitol are almost entirely composed of carny trash. No one exemplifies this better than the Bidens. Sure, there are a few senators and representatives who are trying to make things better but they’re outnumbered a hundred to one. The federal agencies, especially the intelligence agencies are populated with leftist true-believer bureaucrats who should be under sedation in mental institutions for the good of everyone. And then there is the government industrial complex with its throng of corporate vampires feeding off the lifeblood that the IRS diverts to them. The size of the operation is staggering, and apparently, irresistible.
So, when faced with an entrenched system as powerful and as malignant as ours and as inimical to our interests, you have to wonder what the chances are that it can be reformed. And then when you look at who is supposedly going to do the reforming and how they are currently “planning” to take back the country, well, words fail me utterly.
To put it politely, they haven’t a clue. And I’m talking about the ones who aren’t just kidding us like Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham. All of these people; McCarthy, Cruz, Paul, Abbott, DeSantis and even Trump they don’t have the first idea what is needed to save this country. If they did, they wouldn’t be messing around with the presidential election or any of the absurd federal policies that they involve themselves with.
They would spend all their time coordinating the red states into a practical federation with the intent of reinforcing their individual efforts to neutralize the harmful effects of the government in DC. But instead, they waste time trying to compete with each other to see who can lose to Biden in 2024. Absurd.
So, for me I see little reason to hope for any substantial progress for the foreseeable future. And that brings me to the point of this exercise in typing. Exactly what will it take to galvanize an effective response from the bulk of this country? What catastrophe is necessary to force all of these sleepwalkers into doing something that will have practical results?
I’ve been trying to work this out in my head. It seems to me it won’t be a simple financial crisis. We’ve had those already and apparently people are too stupid to see that what’s going on is the slow-motion bankruptcy of the country. I guess until they can’t afford the price of bread they’ll continue on as if all’s right with the world right up until the apocalypse.
What I think will trigger a revolt is violence. People will put up with a lot of economic and financial trouble simply because they really don’t know how these problems are caused or how they’re solved. But everybody understands how law and order works and they can see when it’s slipping away. When you’ve lived your whole life in a safe place and then it becomes unsafe it’s a very big deal. Your wife and kids can’t walk down the streets or go to school without worrying about being robbed or assaulted. The value of your home decreases drastically and your peace of mind disappears.
I think that will be the trigger. The state governments will have to clean up the city gangs that operate with impunity in the Democrat controlled cities. And these cities will have to be controlled by the state to end all the problems that fester there. Welfare, crime, illegal immigration, failed schools, drug addiction all will have to be brought under control by the red state governments in order to stem the tide of decay.
Of course, that’s assuming there are still Americans who still have the will to fix things. Maybe the violence will just go unanswered and things will just get worse and worse. I think we’ll know in just a very few years. Because if things aren’t fixed soon the whole thing will come tumbling down.
