It is the day before what might very well be the most important — and disastrous — election in the country’s history. And it if goes that way, the last one too.
Before I woke up I ran through my head the things I should say and cover.
But I’ve been sitting in front of the computer for an hour, staring at the screen, because, what is there to say?
I can tell the people holding back and deciding not to vote or to vote for Biden because Trump is “Uncouth” and “mean tweets” and “not presidential” that they’re idiots. But they won’t believe me. They’ll believe it later, when the boot is on their neck, and they’re starving. Or maybe not, because the media will tell them it is the fault of someone else, some evil person who did something to them to prevent the paradise of free money and not having to work, and everyone loving everyone else from coming about. I’ve seen it before. In Portugal it was saboteurs and hoarders when things got bad. And people believed. The same people who believe that Biden is kindly uncle Joe who will make everything great.
I can tell people screaming that Trump is shredding the constitution that he’s actually been bizarrely respectful of states rights. When Feds went to states it was only to protect federal property. Otherwise, he let the governors and mayors handle it.
They won’t believe me, because the media told them that Trump is an evil tyrant and literally Hitler.
Is there anything more ironic than their calling themselves “woke”when their entire approach to reality is to treat it as a fluid dream, in which they remember nothing and follow whatever the pack leaders bay right now?
For my entire adult life every Republican president has been “literally Hitler” even though since Reagan at least they’ve been for reducing government reach, allowing for more individual rights, and treating people the same regardless of race. So, you know, the opposite of literally Hitler.
So what’s the use of telling people this, when they’re blinded by their own need to belong, to be part of the herd and to believe whatever they’re told is true.
Many of them will die without ever realizing they’ve been lied to, because their memory extends no more than the beginning of the latest screaming.
It’s global too. The left is going crazy in unison. I was flabbergasted, yesterday, to find that those who oppose Brexit blame Russia interference for its winning.
Okay, Russian interference was insane here, originating in a Hilary Clinton favor from the Russians to discredit her opponent Donald Trump. We KNOW this. It’s been proven. It’s only the deep rot of our investigative agencies that has prevented arrests from being made before the election. Having cooperated with Obama and his administration — and speaking of shredding the constitution — to confound and destroy Trump’s presidency itself, those agencies now thing helping Biden win is part of helping their own survival. Besides, every communist regime needs their own secret police, and these people are in line. No more sentimental nonsense about individual rights. They’ll be able to do onto you, until the end of time. They like that.
This is something else that’s no use telling the left here. They know everything they don’t like is Russia. So, Brexit is, of course, Russia.
It doesn’t matter that Russia was much closer to the Obama administration who, after all, were more flexible. And it doesn’t matter that Putin endorsed Biden. And it doesn’t matter– It’s all “Russia.” And when Biden turns on a dime and talks about our friends, the Russians, they’ll turn too, and forget everything.
Sometimes I wonder if there’s hallucinogenics in the water.
But what the long and horrible history of the 20th century showed us is that it’s just humans. Humans are capable of the most horrendous things.
Like, destroying the most successful system the world has ever seen, the one that has fed, clothed and raised the living standards of most of the world, in return for one that has never achieved anything ever except misery, destruction and mass graves.
Above I’ve used Communism and socialism as what will be brought in on us. I know that purists, and particularly idiots of the left will try to argue this on the basis of “economic organization.”
But it really doesn’t matter. Once the system stops being by and for the benefit of the individual who is allowed to make unfettered economic decisions, it always ends up the same. Call it communism, call it socialism, call it feudalism, call it Cuba, call it North Korea.
Once that train is set in motion and people can’t call it back, the people who have the power will work to concentrate more power and more money into their hands. What they call it, and the justification they use to stomp on the human face is irrelevant. Those with power end up very very rich, and the rest of the people end up starving. Until it eventually all collapses.
As for why I think this is what the left proposes to do to America? It starts with removing our ability to protest what they do to us, to defend ourselves from false charges, or even to demand reward for our labor, and decry injustices done to us. All of which is already being done through platforms and press aligned with the left and working to bring on this regime.
Also neither Biden or the functioning brain of the two will deny they want to open the borders, pack the courts, abolish the police (except THEIR police, of course), lock the populace down to defend us from a virus (that’s not how viruses work, but they won’t tell people that) forbid gas-powered vehicles, and generally work to destroy our economy, so they can squat, fat and poisonous above the ruins of our nation.
I could — I have — shouted that from the rooftops. It doesn’t matter. even people on our side don’t realize that this time, this once, the left HAS to play for all the chips. Even on our side people think this is just a game, and if they just sit this one out to punish Trump for “mean tweets” or whatever, they can vote the way they want the next election, and nothing much bad will happen in the interim.
The problem is the left are cornered rats. Not only is the tech going against them, with communications ever more distributed (despite their dominance of platforms) but during Trump’s presidency their ineptness and rage has revealed more about how they work than the people have ever known before.
For now, their captive media is holding back the full deluge of their horrible actions from the public. To do it, they only had to destroy the economy and put us all under house arrest, which is an extreme measure and also a measure of their desperation.
They must win, you see, because otherwise they face dissolution.
And incompetent as they are, they know — THEY KNOW — they must win. While our side thinks it’s politics as usual.
There is nothing I can do or say to change that.
So all I can say is this, should we not receive as a miracle, from almighty G-d that we beat the margin of fraud and all the fail-safe machinations already in place for our destruction, remember:
Even in the depths of tyranny people resist. Sometimes it means dying, sometimes it means working in small and patient ways.
Even if there’s no hope in our life time, teach the children well and send them forth. Ideas are hard to kill. They have no bodies of their own.
Even if we must burn, remember the falling star. It burns most brightly as it is destroyed.
And generations yet unborn will read of it and marvel, and wonder and know that humans, no matter where and how they live, are not just evil and dark, and made to live in mud and vileness.
If we must burn, my friends, burn brightly. Make such a fire in the night that it will illuminate the human mind forever.
