Since the end of August when Biden’s catastrophic blundering of the Afghanistan Retreat put his approval numbers into free fall, I have noticed that a large swath of the voting population seems to be waking up from the delusion that the Democrats are normal Americans.
As the radical left tries to implement deeply un-American policies like vaccine mandates at work and critical race theory in grammar schools even moderate leftists have become worried and even angry that the country is headed for a place that they neither intended nor approved of when they elected Joe Biden. And now with the economy suffering from multiple serious problems; high inflation, shortages of basic foods and goods, disruptions in the supply of labor for small businesses; people are using the ballot box to register their anger. In purple states like Virginia and even in deep blue states like New York and New Jersey safe Democrat seats are going to Republicans both to change policy and also to punish the Democrats for what they’ve already done.
And I will admit it has improved my mood and my opinion of what our future looks like. But by improved I mean it has gone from utter despair to forlorn hope. After all it was just ten years ago when we watched as the Tea Party candidates cashed in their election success to become Paul Ryan’s RINOs. The idea that the gutless, soulless Republicans in Congress will fight to restore our rights in a fight against the FBI and the rest of the Justice Department seems absurd. The idea that bought and paid for Senators will write legislation to regulate Google and Facebook into respecting our free speech rights is laughable. The idea that the swamp dwellers in the FBI and the Justice Department will obey the orders of a President or Attorney General who tries to reform or clean out their corrupt gangs has been shown by recent example to be a fantasy. So why should I be even forlornly hopeful that we’ll be even marginally better off in the near future than we are now?
I think the answer is awareness. The number of people who are finally aware that the whole political system is a set-up by both parties is orders of magnitude higher than what it was just a few years ago. Millions more people are now aware that men like Mitch McConnell are not on our side. They now know that Mitch McConnell is on Mitch McConnell’s side. He’s a crooked politician whose only priority is to hold onto the political power he has in order to benefit monetarily by it. And if somehow, he is responsible for an action that benefits people on the Right it is simply a coincidence. This is the reason that I have any hope at all. Without awareness of the actual situation someone like me voted for the supposedly conservative politicians at every election. Often these politicians won and took control in Washington. And yet year by year, decade by decade nothing got better. In fact, it got so bad that it seemed like some kind of nightmare where the absolutely worst outcome was always the result. And that is such a debilitating condition that many on our side just gave up thus making the outcome certain.
But when people know they’re being played they start recognizing the fakes. People like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. Nikki Haley and Mitt Romney. John McCain and John Kasich. These people don’t want the things we want. They believe in the same things our enemies believe in. That is if they actually believe in anything at all other than money and power. And knowing that is the only chance we have of getting results. We can look for someone who actually accomplishes any of the things he promises. A particularly good way to spot a phony is to see if other phonies start claiming that this guy is the real deal. Sort of like when the New York Times decides who is the leader of the New Conservatives of the Dark Web. If that isn’t the kiss of death nothing is.
So that’s kind of why I think we’re in a slightly better place now than a year ago. The 2020 election, the COVID farce, the BLM riots and Dementia Joe’s lamentable failures have red pilled a goodly chunk of the non-leftists in America. From my point of view, I’ll at least have a better chance of knowing when it is time to give up all hope and find a new place to live. So if you can consider that good news then rejoice my people!
