I want to call your attention to the recent article by Angelo Codevilla. The fundamental point of the article is whether we “Deplorables” have a coherent or even feasible strategy beyond 2020, a strategy focused on “securing and perhaps restoring our freedom to live as Americans…”
The author has concluded that what we have learned from 2016 is, in simple terms, that:
- our “ruling class” has amassed the power and developed the taste to revel in making us miserable;
- to avoid the above, we must undo or separate ourselves from them, their structures and priorities;
- they have come to regard us as lower beings, and attributed our purported inferiority to our alleged racism, sexism, etc or just plain stupidity; they have negated the possibility of common citizenship with us; Note that the moment Hillary Clinton referenced those who declined to vote for her as “deplorables” and “irredeemables” made this clear and made Donald Trump’s victory possible.
Those that voted for Trump did so seeking a shield against insult and injury at the hands of the ruling class;
Trump’s election, however, emboldened the ruling class to act in “resistance” in ways never imagined in this country.
Trump provided a loud voice on our behalf but no shield against insult and injury and we have been pressed relentlessly to bow to the ruling class’s ever escalating demands for conformity to its whims; such as accepting that sex is only a construct which can be manipulated and changed, that climate change is real and inaction will end the earth as we know it, that “hate speech” must be punished, etc, etc.
No matter what the outcome of the election in 2020, the ruling class will continue to tighten its grip on our lives. Should Trump lose demands are certain to escalate to tighten the government’s strangle hold on education, speech, religion, medicine, and law and all sorts of administrative restrictions.
With either outcome we will have to deal with the question as to how we secure and perhaps restore our diminishing freedom to live as Americans. We cannot count on Donald Trump or any successor to counter the ruling class’s assaults now and in the future. It will be up to us to provide the methods and means of countering the assaults of the ruling class.
Who is going to lead us out of this wilderness and where will we go given that the country is too far gone to believe we can restore anything like the country the founders envisioned. We have to attempt to conserve what can be conserved?
Please read the full article and a related piece on this subject and get back to me if you have the courage to fight to conserve our Republic or at least the people and ways that we wish to be conserved.
If you think you have the courage and are willing to join us in the battles to save the values that made this country the great beacon of freedom in the world please respond to the Sons of Liberty with your email address and a phone number or way to contact you.
