this is a transformational time for this country ... it is do or die come November... it we lose and Trump is taken down afterward because the left hates the constitution and America, kiss this country goodbye ... take that to the bank ...
Irrespective of the crap that's going on, there is good reason to have more faith in the resilience of this country. We've leaped bigger hurdles.
Systems that don't work, don't work. Ideas that are wrong, are wrong. No matter the outcome of the 2020 election, the country will be ok. And the 2018 election could have an influence on the 2020 election in either direction - it is not predictable.
That dangerous short shortsightedness has toppled every great and powerful nation this world has ever known, and, last I checked, America is every bit a part of that same world. Be not so content to rest on your laurels, content that America eclipses heaven and earth and "all will be well regardless". That is reckless endangerment for the future of our children and grandchildren. America has never faced a social upheaval and hurdle this high. Never. Ever. Somewhere along the line you have been indoctrinated under the assumption that America can not be bled out. That is troubling in itself and the recipe for an unwitting disastrous prediction of such is folly for our nation. The abyss can and will swallow all who think they are beyond its measure.
Rock, you really dont think a country that's overcome civil war, the trail of tears, WW's, the racial equality challenges of the 50's and 60's, the social challenges around the Vietnam war, etc not experienced something as challenging as the current political climate?
Idyl's point made sense to me. Are we experiencing a lot of challenge and sociopolitical upheaval? Sure. But it does not seem like the most threatened we have ever been.
I'm sure we are going to take more lumps, but in the end, we will make it through this era.
I agree we will make it through but a quick look at the history of the world shows that getting to a good result after going down the wrong path can take hundreds or thousands of years. Its good to be optimistic but its critical we steer in the right direction at the same time.
This IS it! We have survived much and will survive this but as what? I don't want to survive, I want this country to flourish as the shining beacon to the world that we have been for so long. If we don't activate all our friends and relatives we will survive as just another third world shithole. No it won't happen overnight, you might not feel the worst of it for years but it is still deadly to this nation and ultimately the free world. Tyrants and despots will once again rule the world, your grandchildren may survive, is that what you want?
This election absolutely IS critical to recovering and maintaining a nation of free people where liberty and the rule of law prevails for all.
Will, Wake up. The year is 2018 and you are making a cataclysmic mistake living off the reputation of the past that has little to no resemblance of the enemy we face today. The world, once believed to be so vast, has been reduced to a single simple time zone. Communications, that grand arbiter, judge and jury of all debates is instantaneous. The enemy of your nation, again, unwittingly has become your neighbor. Agree to disagree? That is the position of the weak who can't hold his ground and carries in his pocket a perennial white flag at the ready. Those we face today will not take prisoners. Socialists and Progressives must be ambushed and relegated to a mere nuisance not the immediate threat our Republic at this juncture while we wield the power to do so. Trump, that clown of a pariah and a walking joke who so many here, save but a few, believed, is doing his part to preserve the "intended" American way of life, stacking the SC......and people want to rest and let the past convoluted history of this nation take its own course?
What have you learned and how long have you been sleeping?
