I was at both the Stop the Steal rally outside the White House and the march to the Capitol. Although I stayed far away from the crowds at the Capitol, and I was way in the overflow area at the Ellipse, the sentiment from everyone appeared to be the same: we need to do something because we can’t keep living this way.
What if I told you that you don’t have a choice? There won’t be a civil war. There won’t be another revolution. All you’re going to get is more subjugation.
So many people seem to believe that we just can’t go on this way, that the government has to let people secede. Ha! People tried that already, and it didn’t work, and now they’re described as some of history’s greatest monsters.
Any kind of Biden-esque “reconciliation” is going to involve establishment GOP guys, like Kasich, and the Democrats will say, look, we reached out to you guys, and you wouldn’t accept it, and now you’re all crazy radical terrorists trying to form right-wing militias to overthrow a duly elected government.
Do you really think that after today, after the U.S. government killed a veteran*, that the government would ever let you you peacefully do your own thing?
No, the next however many years of American history is just going to involve the government taking away more and more of your rights, and you won’t be able to, or powerful enough, to do anything about it. And you know you’re just going to sit by and do nothing, because you can’t do anything.
