Alas, saving America will have to wait. With the re-election of President Obama, no doubt the malaise of the last four years will continue. In fact, I believe it will get much worse because he will double down on his atrocious policies of anti-prosperity and anti-liberty. So what do we do now? I’m perhaps just as befuddled as anybody, but if we are true to our convictions as patriots, now is not the time to give up on America.
Having had a month now to ponder the election aftermath, I’ve come to a conclusion that might surprise you. Conservatism did not lose. What won was not ideas or principles. What won was the most divisive election in American history. One that saw masterful manipulation, blatant lies, Machiavellian deceit, media slight of hand and more promises that couldn’t possibly be kept by Democrats. In short Chicago style machine politics won. Republicans want to protect the rich. Make the rich pay their fair share! The GOP are at war with women, they want dirty air, dirty water and they want to throw granny over a cliff.
Are you kidding me? What won was a compliant media running interference for a failed presidency and the truth was simply denied to the people. Some say the takers now outnumber makers so America is now lost, and if you can’t be Santa Claus you will always lose elections. That may be so but when the well is dry as it just about is, what then?
I’m not going to paint a rosy picture where there is none. To do so would be folly. I do believe, however, if we can level the playing field by going toe to toe against the left’s machine politics to level the playing field, then our ideas and solutions will win the day. It isn’t going to be easy but neither was it easy for a handful of farmers to rebel against the most powerful army on the planet in 1773. Make no mistake, it will be a tough four years but prevail we must. In the words of Sir Winston Churchill: ““Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
