They Don't have to Throw Us in the Gulag...

...they just have to represent a threat to our livelihood, to get us to disavow our allies.

VA just took over the statehouse - in 1/4 of the races, the Democrat ran unopposed.

Why did that happen?

Well, you have to understand just how gets elected to most state legislatures:

  • Local businessmen and Chamber of Commerce heads
  • Insurance agents/brokers
  • Real estate agents
  • Teachers
  • Pastors
  • Farmers and ranchers
In short, those people who have many ways to experience pressure to vote a particular way. That pressure is bad enough in normal circumstances.

We don't live in Normal Times. We live in The Age of "We Will Destroy You, Your Family, and Your Way of Earning a Living".

Hard to get people to run if they fear retribution for supporting He Who THEY Are Trying To Impeach.

But, come on!

We WILL fail if we don't, at least, make an effort to provide an alternative to the Borg. We cannot give up before making at least a token effort of a fight.

I realize that, for some of us, who depend on our jobs to keep us alive, it's a scary thought to place that in jeopardy. The very threat of losing all that we have in various courts (the Left's favorite place to fight), throwing away our hard-earned cash on lawyers, is sufficient to cause us to back away, saying, "find someone without something to lose".

There is no such person. We all have family who WILL suffer - either directly, as the President's family have, or indirectly, through the constant abuse of you.

I repeat - there is no one without something to lose.

Guys. This is it. This is the time. This is when we need to man/woman up.

America is on the line.

The Forces of Darkness have their power in our fear of them. When we actually step up, put our name and reputation on the line, we see that the worst they can throw at us is not all that much.

The American Revolution was won by people who - knowing the might of the forces arrayed against them - pledged:


If their sacrifice is to mean anything, the people have to respond to this attempt to subvert the 2016 election.

For Christ's Sake, dare to risk a little discomfort.



We here do what we can - which is vastly more than the sheeple.

I've called Congresscritters and Senators. I donate what I can. And... I'm prepping for when the .223 solution starts even as I pray it won't be needed.

What needs to be changed are minds, and minds - when convinced by emotions as the Left has been - are notoriously difficult to change. Was it Twain who said that it is easier to fool people than convince them they have been fooled?

Linda Fox said...

Have you considered volunteering locally? Either to run, or to support another person?

Some of those locals are getting chewed up.

There's a lot of offices that need filled:
- town council
- zoning
- library board
- police community oversight
- school community councils
- school boards
- precinct chairmen and workers
- ward heeler

Some of those positions are elected, some are volunteer. All are needed.
