I was thinking about writing yet another post about just how demented Joe Biden is when I couldn’t do it. I felt like a guy standing on a sinking ship with water up to his neck screaming, “The ship is sinking!” Sure, it would be a demonstrably true statement but what he should be screaming is, “Head for the lifeboats!”
And that’s where I think we are. It’s time to stop pointing at the federal government and screaming that it’s illegitimate and instead start putting together a shield against it. Now theoretically that would be the Republican Party but I won’t make you laugh or cry by saying that. We need a new organization to coordinate activities and goals across the whole range of red state governments and other organizations that can resist the malevolent actions of the Left coming at us from Washington and all the resonant power structures it leads in the public and private spheres.
This organization must have the purpose of leading the efforts to save the freedoms of the people of the United States of America. It will be funded by those people to identify and facilitate the actions needed and assist the agents who could perform these actions. Specifically, the leadership of this organization needs to formulate legislation to be adopted on the state level and wherever possible on the federal level and coordinates with the state leaders to get it enacted. In my mind the heads of this organization will include many of these state leaders as its executive board. In addition, I can see this organization passing on marching orders to the congressional Republicans and in fact applying pressure to these senators and representatives to toe the line with the clear understanding that deviation from the program will result in negative publicity and a primary challenge at the next election. And along with this stick they can use the carrot of campaign financing to assure compliance.
In essence I’m talking about a new political organization. It doesn’t have to field any separate candidates. They can run as Republicans. But the important thing is that this organization doesn’t care what Mitch McConnell wants or Kevin McCarthy or even for that matter Donald Trump. It must be answerable to the people who send in a hundred dollars or even five dollars. It must be answerable to the people who don’t want to have to wear a mask to go to work or go to school. It’s answerable to the people that don’t want a thing like BLM or antifa to exist. But the most important attribute it must possess is effectiveness. It must win victories for our people. It must be smart enough to select targets that it can defeat. And it must be able over time to show significant progress against the almost endless assaults that people in this country have been prey to for almost seventy years now.
I’ll leave it to some clever people to give it a name and a symbol. It could be the Constitutional Party or the MAGA Party or the “Enough is Enough” Party. But whatever we call it and whoever starts it, whether Donald Trump or some other billionaire or even if all the best governors like DeSantis and Abbott and whoever else get together to spark this fire it needs to start organizing the scattered resistance we see now into something effective and powerful and permanent. Because if no one mans the lifeboats we’re gonna go down with this sinking ship.
