To get anything back that we once had, we’re in for the fight of our lives. However, it would be wise to define what it is we’ll be fighting for, and aiming for “a return to what once was.” From Tim “xrugger” Stebbins at theburningplatform.com:
Let us assume for a moment that the war is over. Let us further assume that the Restoration has begun. The bloated corpses of erstwhile plutocrats, communists, and other leftist rabble festoon the lampposts of the nation. The deep state has been unearthed. The leadership imprisoned, shot, or on the run. Vast swaths of urban American lie in smoking ruins, including large parts of Washington D.C. The flotsam and jetsam of war, the bloody detritus of internecine conflict, sloshes across the continent. The political landscape is irrevocably altered.
Should such a horrific vision come to pass, we would do well to be certain of the reasons we chose to fight. That brings us back to the here and now. The purpose of this essay is to lay out, as I see it, the broader vision of why we must fight. Perhaps a second part will serve to explore the details of what comes after. Make of these words what you will. I have finished my gut check and await now, with calm spirit, the coming storm.
