UPDATE 1/3/21: Leading up to the MAGA March on Washington, American patriots await to see if their collective voice is heard. The big question: does my vote still count?

UPDATE 12/13/20: The American spirit firing the 70 million Americans behind Donald Trump persists and will ultimately prevail. This is the human passion for freedom, and it will not go away. It must re-emerge and reassert itself, perhaps not tomorrow but inevitably in the nihilistic vacuum left by the false promises of Leftism. God bless America, stand beside Her and guide Her.

America will prevail

UPDATE 11/4/20: It is morning, and this is America. Obviously, we of the Conservative persuasion would prefer a more celebratory feeling in place of the great uncertainty that faces us this Day After. The “peaceful transfer of power” apparently will not be peaceful but predictably bumpy as the Dem Left almost certainly has its not-so-secret wish of dragging things through the courts. For those conniving fans of litigation, there’s always that 50/50 chance even the guiltiest party can have its way.

So we shall see. Meanwhile, real Americans will go to work and freely carry on their individual lives without interference…which is the whole point. Others are only comfortable under the watchful, paternalistic eye of that protection racket known as Big Government and demand the same of everyone else. Our task ahead is to continue our free lives while fending off those controls imposed upon us by our fellow citizens. That’s been the American story since its founding, and it hasn’t always been a cakewalk.

Fortunately for us, our chief chosen representative in Washington feels the same and will fight with all his considerable clout and spirit to win this latest battle for American liberty…for himself and for us. God willing.

Morning in America.

Morning in America.

UPDATE 11/3/20: Choosing and praying for the America we recognize and love. MAGA!

UPDATE 10/27/20: “Remember Poland circa early ’80’s when it was said: “we took to the streets and realized for the first time there were more of us than them”?  Yes, we remember. And we’re living it now, right here. God bless the American people who love their liberty and wish only the same for their fellow Americans, not Big Brother control. MAGA! MAGA! MAGA!

Promises made, promises kept.

Promises made, promises kept.

UPDATE 11/1/20: The Spirit grows and grows and grows!      Even in Jerusalem!!

Unlike American Jewry, Israel knows its friends, knows its enemies.

Jerusalem, bikers for Trump

UPDATE 10/25/20: More parades, flotillas, car rallies, even in Woke Hollywood Beverly Hills! Hope springs eternal.

 UPDATE 10/11/20: A Trump caravan of 30,000 cars in Latino, anti-communist FLA! The heart leaps.

UPDATE 10/6/20: The flotillas, the parades, the unfettered display of American Spirit continues apace, even in De Blasio’s deep blue Manhattan. This is movement, free healthy life, the alternative to the chains of our opponents’ dark vision of a SafeNewWorld. If politics is about  permitting the best of humanity to thrive, bring it on.

ORIGINAL POST 10/4/20: Leading up to any election (this election in particular), tensions rise, tempers flare, nasty accusations fly, and with what are we left? Hopefully, at the end, a country where individuals can still walk around and pretty much do as they please, commune with whom they please, buy what they need, staying out of each other’s way and living out dreams, however grand or modest. This is indeed a vast rightwing conspiracy, but not the one of which Hillary spoke: it’s called American liberty.

Do both Parties offer that vision? One vision is dominated by a fanatic zeal for centralized control, correcting/rewriting our history right down to its founding roots, revolution, a fantasized righting of all wrongs, equalizing all inequities. Perfection! Utopia! The other vision offers the risky uncertainty of freedom, laissez-faire, letting things and people be what and who they are.

The latter has yielded a society of limitless opportunity, vitality, creativity, diversity, progress, wealth, prosperity for those willing to take things into their own hands. The former has always ended badly: yet one more failed socialist/communist regime pumped up on empty promises and collapsing as the free human spirit is crushed out in service to The Collective, The Big Lie, The Great Terror. Shared Misery For All!

There is AOC/Bernie/Hillary/Obama/Sleepy Joe’s America, and there is Trump’s America, a stark choice growing ever more defined as things heat up. One is the America of angry, enslaved souls, hating our nation as it fundamentally is, shaking an impotent fist at the sky, waiting for rescue by The State/Big Brother. Never satisfied, never content. More! More! More! Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! The Sixties brats have not grown up or wiser, only older.

The other is the free human spirit, chin set, sleeves rolled-up, defenses at the ready as it goes on the offensive, takes on the world, makes dreams real, overcomes obstacles, enjoys the fruits of its labors, beholden ultimately only to that God dwelling within all people.

Trump flotilla

In a matter of weeks, we shall see if there is indeed a heretofore silent, growing majority made up of people of all backgrounds, classes and colors who prefer freedom as expressed by the MAGA car parades, boat flotillas, waving, cheering roadside crowds…to the depressing doomsayers and Trump haters.  The confirmed haters will never change and will only exchange their objects of contempt and loathing for new ones down the line. They have no positive vision, only resentment and bitterness that can never abate. Families and friendships have suffered because of them; we are a house deliberately divided.

There are, blessedly, tens of millions imbued with the American spirit, including perhaps even those most blindly committed Trump haters whose own rational self-interest will prevail over the poison pumped daily into their systems by the MSM and its sinister comrades in high places. If so, the America we love with all its true diversity can go on.
