USA -(Ammoland.com)- I’m convinced that years from now, historians will look back at this week's election and see it for what it was, the people winning back their freedom from an out of control government.
A second American revolution that saved the nation from itself, without having to fire a shot.
The constitution and the people did their jobs in unison and it worked, thank God, but what happens now?
To answer that, we need to understand what occurred and how we got here in the first place.
We must respond to the question, “What did Americans actually say?” Then and only then, can America avert another disaster in her future.
In the space this column provides, I’ll keep the answer short. Simply put, we said #%@& you to the ruling elites of both parties.
Michael Moore, of all people, was right when he said that Donald Trump’s election “would be the biggest %$^& you the world has ever seen.”
But what exactly, does that mean? What, in fact, did we say?
If we understand the answer, and we govern accordingly, we will never again put ourselves in the position that one election could deal a fatal blow to the America we grew up loving.
Let’s start here. This was not an Obama thing. In fact, Obama was merely the manifestation of the nearly 250 years it took to get here. His election and his attempted takedown of our nation were visible in hindsight going back over 100 years to the election of Woodrow Wilson and the advent of what became the modern progressive movement. Since the election of the 28th president in 1913, that progressive cancer has metastasized to infect everything from our entertainment industries and our schools, colleges, and universities, to newsrooms, etc. It has completely taken over what used to be the Democrat party, and in large measure, we’ve allowed it to happen.
We placed our trust in Republicans believing their rhetoric that they would stop the liberal madness when in fact, once elected they fed off the same trough. We waited dangerously long to fix it. The result, of course, was the election of Barack Obama. He was the Holy Grail of progressivism designed to be the final nail in the coffin of conservatism, the end of the Republican party which would have cemented progressive rule, permanently. He was to have placed the progressive flag over the White House and had the wrong thing happened earlier this week, he would have won.
We can never let that happen again, but how do we stop it? It’s easy. We finish them off. We do exactly to them what they were trying to do to us. We end them. All of them.
This idea that we must “unify” to “reach across the aisle” and sing Kumbaya is both foolish and deadly. Like a wounded but very much alive poisonous snake, it will remain defiant and regenerate to strike again until we do what we say we were going to do through the election of Donald Trump. We remove the destructive policies of the left that have given rise to decades of welfare, hopelessness, and poverty. We allow freedom to flourish; we eliminate the restrictions on our freedom, and we unleash great American ingenuity by getting this cancerous government off our backs and out of our wallets, schools, universities, etc.
In essence, we do what we say we were going to do and let freedom itself fix the problem. In so doing, we kill off progressive liberalism forever.
In speaking of gun control in the same context, Jim Irvine of Buckeye Firearms was a guest on my daily show this week when he reminded us we are now in a position to end that phony “debate.”
To do so, we enact national reciprocity; we remove the burdens placed on law-abiding citizens and we destroy the false notion of “gun free zones.” As in the economic examples above, a free people will flourish, crime will reduce even further than it has, and the desire for a government to enact more “gun control’s” will perish in the face of freedom thereby relinquishing the enemies of our rights to the ashbin of history with the rest of progressive America.
Yes, we can destroy the demonic progressive disease that has infected this nation and it should be simple. We remove the restrictions and regulations that such an ideology depends on and we unleash a free people to be free again. We invite our enemies to join us, and if they refuse, we leave them where they belong, in that ashbin of history.
Yes sir, there’s a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald Trump. If he does what the people elected him to do, he’ll kick in the doors to the White House on January 20th and utter the famous lines from Kevin Costner’s Wyatt Earp character from the movie of the same name, “I’m Wyatt Earp and it all ends NOW!”
