The Left hates America and everything it stands for. While there are some patriotic Democrats, the party has moved undeniably and aggressively towards the Left. Those Democrats who claim to love America will either have to leave the party, or live a denial. This election proved a few things. One is that Leftists have nothing to offer America from an idea standpoint, that would improve the lives of its citizens. They have reverted to a full on Marxist ideology (check out Biden's Unity Task Force manifesto if you don't believe me https://joebiden.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/UNITY-TASK-FORCE-RECOMMENDATIONS.pdf) that history proves results in nothing but slavery and genocide.
Another truth emerging from this election is that Leftists' primary goal is power over life and liberty. If the COVID pandemic proves anything, it's that Capitalism saves lives ( producing a vaccine in less than a year) and Socialism destroys lives (lockdowns that resulted in massive unemployment, suicides, worldwide starvation, and greater dependence on government ). Anyone who dares to think what a Leftist doesn't think is an enemy who must be destroyed. Another truth emerging from this election is that through the public school system, the Universities, and the main stream media (MSM) at large, Leftists have been rewriting the history of America as a racist, exploitive, imperialistic country, and spoon feeding it to our children, many of whom are now America hating Leftist adults. The final truth to be discussed here, but not the last surfaced by this election, is that Leftists are ahead of Conservatives when it comes to advancing political agendas. Here's what I mean. Realizing they've run out of ideas to promote worldwide progress and universal liberty, they adopted a political strategy that would breed hate and divisiveness among our great nation's citizens. It took decades, but they created victims of every sort, dividing America along race, class, gender, age, and any dimension that would affect a split from the ideals that unify us as Americans. They effectively enslaved, denigrated, and condescended to blacks long after 100s of 1000s of Americans (blacks included) lost their lives in a civil war for liberty. They balkanized and made victims of every ethnic group that entered our great nation after the immigration periods of the late 19th and early 20th century. They engineered a feminist movement that is currently anti-feminist if you take the perspective of any champion female athlete, to name just ONE inconsistency in a Leftist's perspective on women's rights. They declared war against the ideals that unify ALL Americans, embodied in our founding documents such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. They injected a heavy dose of unearned guilt in our youth, and turned them into soldiers of anti-Americanism. They continue to attack Judeo-Christian, and other like-minded values, which form the backbone of American society. What can Conservatives do? The call to action is first to never, ever, ever, ever give up. It would be an affront to our Founding Fathers, the warriors that succeeded them, and everyone who believes in America. From a strategic standpoint, if you have children or grand children, do your best to educate them on what it means to be American. Make them aware of the evil tactics of Leftism, as described above, and never allow them to accept an unearned guilt based on a Leftist's view of America.
From a tactical standpoint, our election system must be fixed, hopefully before Leftist Democrats can pack the Supreme Court and add two states with several more Leftist Senators and Congresspersons. Regardless of any pandemic, natural disaster, world war, or alien invasion, this country should NEVER have allowed mail in voting on the scale, and in the way, it was used in this election.
A nation's voting process is a "mission critical system." It is like a bank where people entrust their life savings. It is like a rocket that takes humans to outer space. Its primary feature is that it must be proven to work, BEFORE IT IS USED!
Would any of us put $100,000 cash in an envelope with our name, address it to "bank depositor at ACME Bank," and trust that it would end up safely in our account? How many thing can go wrong in that process? While astronaut's are quite brave, would any of them get in spaceship, or be allowed to get in a spaceship, without that spaceship having gone through the ultimate rigors of engineering design, manufacturing, and operations safety and contingency assessments? Such are the requirements of a nation's voting system, because without a voting system that can be verifiably trusted, a free society cannot exist.
Finally, it's better to "speak out" than to "speak to." Although the latter can have limited success, arguing one on one with individuals that could never be swayed is pointless if no one else is listening that can be influenced by your wisdom. It's better to blog, create videos, speak at events, talk at your kid's school, or help out at club that has wider political influence. Don't be apathetic or surrender our country to Leftism. They are fundamentally vapid, weak bullies, who derive power ONLY from those who voluntarily withdraw from the fight.
Don't give up! The American dream is worth the fight!
