America is reaching a fork in the road. Two mutually exclusive visions of the future are jockeying for control of the United States. If the Left wins it will be a ghastly spectacle. Basically, the whole country will become California. Nothing honest or normal will be allowed anywhere. Gavin Newsome will be declared president for life and that fat bald guy in the admiral skirt will win the Miss America contest every year. The rest of the details will be too gruesome to want to predict and chances are I’ll have to emigrate to Hungary.
But what if we win? Now that would be fun to speculate about. So, I think I will indulge in a daydream of what could be the future if we don’t lose again.
I guess we’ll have to start by deciding how we would “win.” Let’s suppose that we retake the House and Senate in November and by 2024 things are so bad that we not only take back the presidency but we end up with a filibuster proof majority in the Senate. Then with the assistance from the Supreme Court we use several decisions to strip away all the unconstitutional regulations that have hamstrung American freedoms in the last fifty years.
Think about it. If the affirmative action, gay marriage and gay rights decisions are overturned then more than half the country will be free to live normal lives again. The government will no longer have the power to tell you who to hire, who to rent your apartment to or who you have to bake a wedding cake for. Not only that, but the government will have lost the basis under which they currently judge all our decisions. In fact, I think it might make sense for the government to get out of the business of even collecting racial data on its people all together. After all, the government is supposed to be color blind. Well then, let it be entirely so. As for what else would change I think about thirty states would end gay marriage. A few others might allow it but disallow adoption of children by homosexuals. And some states would re-criminalize homosexuality.
But after what has gone on over the last ten or so years, I like to think that the biggest change would be the revocation of the Patriot Act and the yanking of the FBI’s teeth. The weaponization of the intelligence agencies against the American people has been a horror show that has no equal in our history. Seeing the things that have been done by the last few Attorneys General and their henchmen has been gut wrenching. And even that isn’t enough. I think most of the federal judges appointed by Obama and Biden must be reviewed and the ones who were willing conspirators with the FBI must be impeached, convicted and removed by the Congress. And the unholy alliance between the Tech companies and the Surveillance state must be busted up.
Also, the federal bureaucracy must be brought back under the control of the executive branch of the government. In other words, the President must have discretion to remove any employee that obstructs the Administration’s lawful management of the executive branch.
The government must return to producing an annual budget for the federal government. All these stop gap funding measures and endless multi-trillion-dollar deficits must stop. We’re rapidly reaching the point where our currency will lose its stability and lose its value.
And finally, if America first leadership reasserts itself, we can hope to see the return of manufacturing to our shores. And with it would come massive employment opportunities and more importantly hope and optimism. So, there’s the dream. If we win all these things become possible.
Sure, it’s a pipe dream. I figure there’s a one in a hundred chance of all that happening. The likelier outcome is the current stalemate going on for years to come. But every once in a while, it feels good to indulge in a bout of unbridled enthusiasm. So please forgive this outburst and I return you to the miasma of hopelessness already in progress.
