For those of you who will assume that I’m in one of my rare bad moods, please be assured that I’m actually feeling quite okay. The picture around me is dark, but my viewpoint is clarifying; I can’t remember a time when I seriously wanted—are you ready for this?–to be proven wrong. So, I’m asking everyone to convince me why I am wrong in my observations. And I truly wish you much success. I’m going to help you along in this effort. Here are some questions that I hope you can answer in the affirmative about the last six-plus years:
- Has any Democrat been accused of a crime and gone to jail?
- Has any Democrat been sanctioned, either in the administration or Executive Branch?
- Have any consequential laws been passed to control the border?
- Has any headway been made against controlling drugs crossing the border?
- Have we made any inroads against the cartels?
- Has any Biden legislation benefited this country more than harm it?
- Have you heard any Democrat protest the U.S. spending or deficit?
- Has any agency been sanctioned or punished in any way for illegal actions?
- Have any actions been taken to stop China’s advances?
- Has anyone heard about a plan for our participation in the Ukraine/Russia war?
This list is not meant to be comprehensive, but I’ve organized it to make a depressing but realistic point:
The Democrats cannot be stopped from their illegal, unconstitutional and destructive activities, nor can we force them to take actions that will benefit this country. And finally, no one will probably be held accountable for all the misdeeds they have committed.
All the Congressional committees in the world will not provide enough ammunition to intimidate the Democrats into changing their ways. The media won’t help us and will continue to stonewall as much as they can to protect the Democrat establishment. Although the Supreme Court has stopped some unconstitutional actions, it’s not their job to hold the line against the Democrats.
We have waited too long to seriously protest the Democrats and the intelligence agencies and they have no incentive to pull back from their outrageous activities.
We cannot stop them in the current climate.

So, shall we just cave in completely and give up? Believe it or not, I think we must dig in and fight harder than ever. But unlike continuing to pursue the strategies we’ve been using up until now, we must think outside the box and create an enormous cacophony of protest. We must be louder, more persistent than ever, in a way that we simply can’t be ignored. We must do it in unconventional venues. We must do it repeatedly, with the rhetoric clearly defined, to be shared verbally and in our signage. Our activities must be unceasing, persistent and obstinate, but orderly, legal and without violence. This last point is key, because the Dems and the media will do everything in their power to characterize us as crazy or radical, so we must be deliberate and not over-the-top. We must speak in a unified voice that will declare we are trying, not to save just the Republican party, but the whole country.
The time is now.Published in
