We shouldn’t worry about things that are out of our control, but I can’t help it; I’m a born worrier, and I really want Trump to win this election.
However, as of this writing, I’m not very optimistic; it’s still a toss-up. What if Trump loses? Here’s something I wrote on American Renaissance recently:
Even if Biden (Harris) wins the presidency, the millions of Trump voters are not going to magically disappear. We’re not going to just roll over and say, “alright then, we’re about to lose our freedoms, but there’s nothing we can do about it until the next election.” No, the Communist elites will have to deal with us. This election has brought the Right together, and it seems to me that we’ve become a lot more organized than before. We need to use this power to assert ourselves, and protect our freedoms on a number of fronts.
Maybe it’s just my own perspective, as this is the first election where I was actually active. But I really do believe that conservatives, in all our political diversity, ethnic backgrounds and national origins, have created something as close to a unifying spirit as is possible. We have networked, honed our organizational skills, cultivated our own intelligentsia, created our own online spaces – and sacrificed our own safety on the streets to fight for what we believe in. Some of us have given their lives for the struggle to defend what remains of America.
In the event of a Biden/Harris presidency, it becomes even more important to strengthen this network, and work with people we might not agree with, even on some important issues. We can save the internal bickering for later, after we have freed ourselves from the Communist tyranny that America is becoming.
Obviously, my hope is that the coming days will bring good news, but even if it’s bad news, let’s harness those feelings of disappointment and apprehension, and use that energy for positive things.
Here are a couple of photos from the most recent Trump Rally I attended, in Gresham, Oregon:
No that last photo is not of Trump himself; it’s actually somebody wearing a Trump mask!
