Today will be a busy day here. We’ve got a big high school graduation party happening, with friends and family enjoying a near perfect summer day. The pool will be full of kids. Burgers and dogs will be scarfed down and lemonade will flow. And tomorrow I go to another party for my niece who is also graduating. After the horror of the COVID lockdowns this summer feels like heaven. And coming up in a couple of weeks is the big trip to Yellowstone so busy, busy, busy.
But I wanted to reflect a little on the juxtaposition of the Bidencrash and the SCOTUS decisions. Here is proof that all is not lost. Even in the grip of the Deep State coup that foisted a doddering idiot on us as the so-called “leader of the free world” we see that large swaths of the country are still ready to take advantage of opportunities to throw off the shackles of leftist control and restore normality to their lives. Thanks to the courage of those five judges, we have seen incredible change unleashed. Several states have already outlawed abortion completely. That’s a stunning change. The people in those states have taken back control over their lives and redefined what is right and what is wrong. That is not a trivial thing.
I can only imagine what next year’s Supreme Court docket will include. And I imagine what it will be like when this country is clearly seen to be two different nations, Blue and Red. And I welcome this contrast. Because finally, finally there actually will exist freedom. It will be freedom of choice. Freedom to decide which America we want to live in, Blue or Red.
And that will be a revelation. The people in the Red States will not be upset about the choices that the other side has made. They will be unconcerned at the abortion, transgender pronoun signaling and all the other manifestations of mental illness on display in the other America. In fact, they will be glad that these things exist as a cautionary tale to show to children when they ask why it is important to have clear standards of what is healthy and what is diseased.
But the people in the Blue States will be foaming at the mouth and bellowing in rage at the knowledge that there exists a world where their power to sow confusion and misery is excluded and rejected with impunity. After their decades of growing power and finally complete cultural control over our lives, this transformation will be maddening. I expect countless acts of vandalism and violence in the coming months and years. But it will still be a relief to know their control over our lives is over.
Now I know I’ve gotten ahead of things. The events of the last couple of weeks are barely a sliver of daylight peeking through a sky of solid clouds. But that sliver is so blindingly bright that it lights up the world. We see what can be. We know what we want now. We want to be free of the control of insane ideas and the crazy people who espouse them. It’s clear how easy it is to reach this goal when the people we choose for leaders aren’t part of the mad house we’re fighting against. Donald Trump has fully vindicated his value as a leader. He did what fifty years of Republicans couldn’t, or rather, wouldn’t do. He gave us an honest Supreme Court. He gave us back our Constitution. Say whatever you like about his shortcomings as an individual. He accomplished something stunning.
He gave us back hope.
