The Republic Will Survive


Tuesday, November 8, 2016

I will be voting for Donald Trump. He is a far-from-perfect candidate and I disagree with many of his policies, but HRC is an absolute nightmare. Trump is our only option right now.

That being said, we should hope for the best, but plan for the worst. By the time you read this, you might already know who won.

I think we need to discuss the state of the Union, if the worst should happen.

Many believe that Hillary will be the one to finally put the nail in the coffin on our civil liberties. While she would no doubt take a considerable amount of pleasure in such a thing, it’s not the right time for the Democrats to make their final power play.

If Hillary Clinton is elected President of the Unites States, I do not believe that it is the end of our Republic.

Not to sound overly conspiratorial, but it is no secret that many leftist policy-makers have a general disdain for the First and Second Amendments, and in many cases, unabashedly so. That isn’t to say that they would violently seize power, but they will most certainly use every legislative and judicial advantage they have to meet that end.

What people need to realize is that this will be a slow process. Hillary Clinton is not going to executive order the legislative burning of the Constitution. There would be too much backlash.

It would come from all sides. The American people, the police, and the military would most assuredly oppose a full frontal political assault on the Bill of Rights. The Democrats know that when they make their play, the people are going to have to be receptive to it.

The Republic of The United States will survive this election if the Democrats win. Sure, it will be weakened, but it will survive. We may have only four years or fifty, but we have time—time to change policy, change minds, and educate.

If we keep the people on our side, we will win. Maybe not in the short term, but in the long term. If conservative leadership is smart, they will start focusing on the long game.  

If I’m wrong, then God help us.
