An Inauguration Day Call to Action

Today marks the start of the Biden Administration. In a few hours, we will witness his inauguration as the forty-sixth president of these United States. If we listen to him, this is a time of unity, of peace and of moving forward. However, if you listen to those around him, not to mention the media, it is a time when they are hoping for open season on anyone who dared support President Trump. It isn’t difficult to see them extending that to all conservatives. Because of that, today is the day when we should each step up and answer the call to action to save our country from the machinations of the Democratic National Committee, socialists in Congress barely bothering to masquerade as anything but what they are and a media that has declared war on the very foundations of our Republic.

There is no denying this Inauguration Day will be different from those before it. Even before the events of January 6th, we knew it would be different. Biden and company early on hopped on the Covid-19 bandwagon, demanding we all be masked, avoid contact with others and basically isolate ourselves into oblivion. But that wasn’t enough. Using the excuse of the relatively few protesters who gained entry to the Capitol earlier this month, thousands of National Guardsmen were moved into place to “protect” and “ensure” the transfer of power. Looking at video of the Capital makes it look like a city under siege.

Except it isn’t. Where are the rioting mobs night after night? Where are the businesses being ransacked and burned? Where are the areas of the District being set up as government-free zones? Why are the protesters who stormed the Capitol called domestic terrorists by our soon-to-be president and not those over the summer who did their best to bring entire cities to their knees and who showed complete disregard to the law and to the rights of their fellow citizens?


Heaven help us all during the next two years as we slowly wend our way through to the mid-term elections. We have to make a stand or we will lose the country. We must remember the accomplishments of the Trump Administration and not sit idly by as the Dems and the Never-Trumpers do their best to erase or rewrite history.

I pray President Trump is right when he said yesterday in his farewell address that “The best is yet to come.”

I urge each of you to watch the address if you haven’t already. Watch it and remember this is what the incoming Administration wants to erase. It goes beyond the sometimes volatile and over-the-top tweets by Trump. It is every accomplishment made during his four years in office. It is punishing every person who served the country by being part of his Administration.

Last night, I did something I haven’t done in a while: I re-read the Declaration of Independence. I did it in part to prepare for today’s post but I also did it to remind me of the mindset of our Founding Fathers. The colonies had long been oppressed and abused by the Crown. Reading it, you see some parallels between today’s fractured political climate. But you also see we have not yet reached the point the colonists did. It is coming, unless we act and act now.

That does not mean taking up arms to overthrow the government. It might one day come to that, but we aren’t there yet.

And this is where we must sound our call to action.

  1. Each of us must get involved with our government. Not just on the national level but on the state and local level as well. It is more than voting. And, let’s face it, too few of us actually got out and voted. Worse, we got complacent and didn’t do everything we could to make sure other conservatives and libertarians voted.
  2. We must create viable alternatives to mainstream media that report the news–really report it–in a way that those sitting on the political fence can see the unbiased reporting and compare it to the propaganda coming from the networks and major newspapers.
  3. As great as it is to have welcoming social media places like MeWe and Parler, Minds and Discord, we can’t limit ourselves to those platforms. We need to know what the other side is saying and planning. If we walk away from FB and Twitter, etc., we also lose the chance to engage with those who voted for Biden because he was “nicer” than Trump. (And, before you go off on that isn’t a reason to vote for someone, remember that was why a number of voters chose Trump over Clinton. They found him more likable than her.)
  4. As part of getting involved on the local level, it means running for office if you are of that bent. If not, it means helping find viable candidates who not only embrace conservative values but who will work for the best interests of their constituents. It means helping campaign for them. It means getting out and talking to friends and family about them. It means educating yourself on the opposing candidate’s platform and background.
  5. It means being a poll watcher. It means standing out in the heat or cold, rain or blistering sun, making sure the rules are followed. It means documenting everything–and backing it up.
  6. It means not digging a hole in the ground and burying your head in it. Take precautions. Make sure your pantry is stocked, you have a full tank of gas, cash on hand and your go-bag ready. There is no guarantee this country can be saved short of conflict. I hope it doesn’t come to that but I am also a believer that we must all prepare for any reasonable eventuality.
  7. Conversely, it also means not flying off the handle and playing directly into the other side’s hands by overreacting. Look at how they have played up the actions of those relatively few protesters on the 6th. Look at how they are making hay out of the fact two–TWO–out of the 25,000 National Guardsmen have been removed from the detail due to groups they belong to. The liberals want us to do something. That will be their justification for cracking down even further.

In other words, act but do so subtly, with purpose and a plan. We are the revolutionaries. But not all revolutions are fought with guns. This is an ideological war we cannot afford to lose.

As our own Victory Girl Kate said when we were discussing the situation:

I’m all for standing tall, head up, and be the resistance at every turn. Two years in politics is a very long time AND a very short time. We need to get busy. All 80 million of us.”

In this case, resistance is not futile. It is necessary. It is the only way to ensure a future where our children and grandchildren will be free. That has to be worth fighting for, with words, with our time, with our efforts and with a sincere desire to preserve the Union.

So, just as the Lincoln Project and others are taking names of those who supported Trump in order to prevent them from earning a livelihood, we take names. Not to stop them from working or to harass them in their homes or when eating out, but to hold them accountable as our elected officials, as those appointed to government jobs or those in the media.

There may come the time when certain states–I’m looking at you, Texas–will decide its best course of action is to withdraw from the Union. The day may come when citizens of this country decide to take matters in their own hands. Before that happens, we must remember the actions, and inactions, of the  Crown and the so-called revolutionaries that led to the colonies breaking with Great Britain.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

January 6th very well may have been the warning shot. We shall see. For now, the clock is running on the mid-term elections. It is time to pull off the gloves and get to work.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

We must embrace the power of the Declaration of Independence. We must protect and defend the Constitution of these United States and make sure those serving in our government remember they do so at our pleasure, not at their own. We must remember that our story is one of freedom. That means we do not stand by and watch, hands in our pockets, as they strip that most basic of rights from us.

This is our call to action. It is simple. It is essential. It must be done now, before it is too late.

    Your quote from the Declaration stopped just before the most important part:

    “…whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…”

    • Amanda Green says:

      Actually, I did that on purpose after a great deal of thought. Right now, with emotions running as high as they are, too many people read that and only see it meaning armed rebellion. There are other means available as well, means we should utilize before trying anything ore drastic.

  • Quentin Q Quill says:

    Oh, so then you realize that there are enough Trump supporters that could become violent that you censored yourself because of the risk of them becoming violent. Thanks for the confirmation.

    • Amanda Green says:

      Did I say that? No, I didn’t. If you go back and read what I wrote, you will see it could apply to Trump supporters, Never-Trumpers, Antifa and others.

    • Aussie Supporter says:

      But its ok to a Leftist and violent of course, isn’t it hypocrite?.Hundreds of millions of dead prove that point pretty well doesn’t it.
      Remember one point my friend, Socialist regimes always eat their own through purges.

      You won’t be able to get away with vote fraud next time so easy, unless you do a deal with China again with another virus.

  • Rick Yarnell says:

    The Democrat Party was founded on evil. It has perpetuated evil since its founding, and remains evil to this day. Anyone who votes Democrat is complicit in evil.

  • Robin H says:

    I hear a lot of grumbling among my conservative friends that why bother voting when it’s rigged against us? It’s all well and good to talk about running for office or supporting someone who is, but at the end of the day if we can’t trust our election counting there’s no point. Our first order of business is to get the counties and states to adhere to real election integrity. I believe there would be enough local support for that.

  • Rick Yarnell says:

    So call Democrats out on being complicit in evil. Get in their faces. Remind them of their history of slavery, segregation, the Ku Klax Klan and other evils they have perpetuated. For too long, as I have been asked by my leftist acquaintances why I am a Republican, I answered defensively, trying to “justify” why. No longer. Every answer now will be an all-out attack on The Evil Democrats!

    The Democrat Party is the Party of Evil; always has been, always will be.
