It's time to be patriots....

It's time to be valiant. Are we still made of the stuff that the founders and those who risked everything to defend freedom were made of? We have cowards running the government. We have cowards screaming fake news and spreading propaganda who hide behind computer keyboards laughing their asses off all the way to their bitcoin account. We have a country littered with ammosexuals who would cry "no fair" if they couldn't threaten families and babies with their dicks of death while hiding in some cornfield.
Are we going to sit at the cable TV going tisk tisk until America is obliterated. I'm sure many American citizens will just try to change the channel when they realize it's all gone.

My daughter was watching a Harry Potter movie

this evening and one line struck me.. In the immortal words of Dumbledore,

"We have something Voldemort doesn’t have...
A reason to fight"

It's strange somtimes where inspiration can spring up. We do need to to stop quarreling between ourselves because together we have something powerful that they don't have... a reason to fight.

Our constitution and Bill of Rights were written

for the most part so we could have a society with all its differences that could develop and coexist in civility; one that could work out its problems without decending to the worst impulses in human nature. Civility died with the rise of Trumpism. Our innate worst impulses are on the rise again.
In the oldest game of human survival the one with the biggest stick and largest number of participanrs with big sticks wins. The intelligent and thinking/empathetic only conquer the big sticks with overwhelming numbers incurring many losses or by taking up their own big sticks.
We can't just give up and shy away to defeat an uncivilized horde; they will win. We had better get tough, unify into large numbers and be powerfully and intelligently vocal and be prepared for the possibility of defending freedom with our own "big sticks" as a last resort. Otherwise, as history teaches, we will lose.
