Guest Opinion: “What can I do?” people ask.
The Biden administration, FBI, DOJ and their media allies have all clearly crossed the line in violation of the Constitution, their sworn duty and the rule of law.
So, what are we going to do? How will we mount a defense or a counter offensive?
I’d argue that the gap separating us as citizens has never been wider. That includes looking back to the Civil War and the ugly years of segregation. I say that because we healed from those wounds.
But now, progressives and communists have pulled the new Democrat party far left, their anger at not being obeyed has become a hateful campaign against not just anyone who doesn’t take the knee or wear the mask – but America itself. Their ideology has been crafted for a long time and it will not fade away.
The next election offers a binary option; either we put the brakes on the people lusting to tear the country down in order to rebuild it their way, or accept the status quo and passively watch America’s decline.
Recognize this: Democrats are better at politics than Republicans. When they fail to pass a radical bill in Congress or lose an election, they don’t admit rejection, they become more determined to force their will upon us. One election won’t change politics, but one generation can begin to change the culture and bring accountability to the fetid swamp – if we will act.
The illustrative tools we need are plentiful:
* “They” claim the election was fair, yet they have hundreds of lawyers fighting court challenges and audit demands in every contested state.
* Against our wishes “they” are trying to teach racial separation theory in every state in the union and they are fighting school choice to maintain control over the minds of coming generations
* “They” are pushing unsubstantiated disease hysteria in an attempt to force mask compliance and lock us down, while they are flooding the country with untested people from all over the world.
* “They” have turned the rule of law on its head and jailed demonstrators for trespassing on public property while they ignore terrorist assaults and the burning of government buildings in cities they control.
* The Democrat party has gone from telling black people, “you can’t come here or work here because you’re black”, to saying “you’re only being tolerated because you’re black.”
… the list goes on.
In spite of the obvious aggression against us all, far too many good people have been bullied to fear criticism for expressing themselves. Choosing to say nothing and to do nothing is choosing to BE NOTHING! This has to stop. It has to stop now.
American hero Thomas Paine once said, “I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace.” In referring to “his time”, he was speaking of taking up arms. That is something that would be both foolish and fateful in this day and age when Democrats control the government, the courts, the media and apparently, even the Army.
But we have the power of truth and we can overwhelm the ballot box and put honest candidates in office if we will just believe in ourselves. We’ve all heard someone say, “I’m just one person, what can I do?” – maybe you’ve said it yourself. We can push back and we can win without taking to the streets, burning buildings and attacking police or battling leftist crowds.
We can do this
Remember this saying: “All that is needed for evil to prevail is that good men do nothing.”
#1 If you have kids, look at the books they are given in school. If you see historical falsehoods, political propaganda or critical race theory, share your discovery with other parents and organize a group to speak at school board meetings. That is where you’ll be heard and where differences are made.
#2 Get one new person to vote. This is important. It is the key to overwhelming the Democrat election rigging process. We all know someone who has been ambivalent about voting, or a youngster turning 18 this year. If half of the people who voted for Trump would make a serious effort to get the pledge of one new voter and get them registered, we could turn out over 100 million voters in 2022 and more by 2024.
Think about this; new voters are likely to share their enthusiasm with people in their peer group. Your effort to recruit someone could result in several more newcomers or converts.
# 3 Make the effort to attend candidate forums or meet and greet opportunities and ask candidates questions about their loyalty to the Constitution and/or their willingness to stand up to the lawlessness that is corrupting our government. We must find candidates who will promise to pursue justice in DC. That means bringing investigations into all who have lied before Congress and openly violated the system of justice we believe in.
Because of weak Republicans in the Congress, Democrats are able to violate the law with impunity. They want no borders; they are openly working to collapse our economy. They laugh in the face of people who want good educations for their children. Only we, the citizens of America can stop them.
We can do this but we have to give a damn. We have to want it. If you believe in our country and care for its future, find a friend to work with you and remember these rules:
Play hard, but offend no one.
Be pleasant, but convincing; attract new people every day.
Expect pushback and handle it with facts and civil discussion.
Make no mistake, they will fight with all they have, but we have one superior weapon; TRUTH. Let’s use it with tactful persuasiveness and heartfelt sincerity. Let’s work for America!
