First Things First, Starting with Electing Anti-Ruling Class Trump

Barb Wire

Here I am again, writing about that consarned election. It just won’t go away.

I’ve been hearing a lot of despair from various people, including some of us here on this blog: Trump and Hillary are the devil and the deep blue sea, it doesn’t matter which one gets in, they’re both just terrible.

Let us grant, for the sake of discussion, that’s true: Trump really is every bit as bad. I don’t believe that, allegations by the nooze media don’t impress me, but never mind. What matters is that either he or Ol’ Careless will be our next president.

Our friend Weavingword asks how we, the American people, ever reached this point. Well, it took a long time, didn’t it? It took a great deal of hard labor from a great many wicked persons over several generations to push us into this kettle of fish. And the point of that is, it’s going to take a lot more than one election to undo it.

The ultimate goal must be the re-Christianization of America, and the total dis-empowerment of our current secular humanist, fanatically statist ruling class. That can’t be accomplished unless many millions of people in America make some major changes in their hearts and minds. Again, these things can’t be done quickly.

We have to start somewhere. And given that the entire statist ruling class is rock-solid against Trump and for Hillary, the obvious starting-point, for practical purposes, is to keep Hillary out of the White House.

And then, if Trump turns on us, the people who elected him, why, we’ll turn on him. And then who’s he gonna call? Paul Ryan?

Elections are only a small, albeit important, piece of what we’ve got to do. But each election gives us another opportunity to chop away at the power of our perverse ruling class–not just the politicians, but also the noozies, the courts, the schools and colleges, Hollywood, the various sets of “activists”–the whole shootin’ match.

And we must constantly, daily, seek God’s help. And if He wants to intervene before the struggle has gone on for very long, you won’t catch me complaining.

Remember: King Alfred wrote, “For the Lord is our defense, Jesu defend us.” But he did have to come out of the swamps and fight the battles that God gave him.
