Think about what you’re saying: in effect, you say if HR-1 and the Senate equivalent are passed … it’s over. We might as well eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die. It’s a counsel of passivity.
The thing is, no one knows the future. The Communists had total control of Hungary and Czechoslovakia by 1948. Eight years later, there was a massive uprising in Hungary … only defeated from the outside. And 20 years after taking power, even the Czech Communists wanted to, effectively, dismantle the system. Again, only crushed from the outside. And finally the crushers themselves collapsed. [I lived for a few months in the USSR in 1985, and it didn’t look unstable by the conventional measures … no starvation, stability, you could get by … however I noticed that the ‘intelligentsia’ I met no longer had faith in the system. But even I was surprised when the whole thing just fell over.]
We’ve got eighty million patriots in America, which probably includes most of the people with guns and most of the people with military experience.
The Left has deep internal contradictions. People on the Right who, understandably, know little about the Left, see them as all part of a single monolithic conspiracy, directed from some central point – perhaps George Soros’ house. But in fact, there are all kinds of currents in the Left – some of them are true revolutionaries and want to seize all the big corporations and … do something with them, they don’t know what. Others are perfectly happy to have ‘woke’ corporations existing. Some of them hate the police and the military, others are working to take them over.
Look what’s happening to the areas where the Left rules: San Francisco, Portland …indeed all the big cities. This will open people’s eyes.
They’re going to have to face the problem of our becoming Number Two in the world, as the Chinese repeat Hitler’s winning formula of a capitalist economy directed by a totalitarian government. On the Left, there are those who love China, because they love power – and those who hate it, because it now has the world’s greatest number of billionaires.
We’ve had our Dunkirk. Now we hold out and wait for the enemy to make a mistake, which he will.
But … much more fundamentally – electoral politics is, ultimately, not going to settle the fate of America. We need to start thinking about something like peaceful separation – perhaps a revival of the Articles of Confederation, so that the ‘two Americas’ can each pursue their own visions without hindrance from the other.
