“Donald Trump Elected President in Shock to Establishment.”
These are Eight Words that announced the triumph of good over political evil. The unknown possible over the defeat of the “establishment criminal and corruption.” The invitation of a revival of Judeo-Christianity over secularism.
It is the Joy of victory; a concern for those in the throes of the Agony of defeat. The issues that resonated were:
“Make America Great Again.”
“Drain the Swamp.”
America, for the time being, has stopped the insidious growth of radical insane progressivism …for at least another moment in history.
Never, never, never forget, 228 to 290. How close, our choice of political evil over a new start. (Michigan has still not been awarded so Trump may have 306 when this publishes)
The real work is ahead of us. How do we re-embrace those 228, enshrine that precipice over which we barely escaped descending. It is the reversal of the George Soros “Managed Decline of America.”’ A William F Buckley “Stop.” A rejection of that insidious “Transformation of America,” And, solidify another 240 years minimum. Our country’s suicide was too close for comfort. This is an indelible message enshrined. The message to our children, grandchildren and the world……never, never, never, surrender!
“Krauthammer: Trump Win Would Be ‘Ideological and Electoral Revolution Of the Kind We Haven’t Seen Since Reagan’.”
Well, God Bless America. Game on! This is a revival of the ideology of conservatism. The message framed by:
“A Conservative is a fellow who is standing athwart history yelling ‘Stop!’ William F. Buckley, Jr.”
“Government growing beyond our consent had become a lumbering giant. It is slamming shut the gates of opportunity. It is threatening to crush the very roots of our freedom. What brought America back? The American people brought us back — with quiet courage and common sense, with undying faith that in this nation under God the future will be ours, for the future belongs to the free. (Ronald Reagan)”
It is problematic and morally disturbing, in a Judeo-Christian culture, to realize that there is such a fine line between a criminal and corrupt choice on the one hand, and a “crude but truly patriotic unknown” as the alternative. And we had difficulty deciding!!!! When we left England, the prospects were slim, the future bleak, and the horizon black.
Coal miners wanted their jobs back. Manufacturing needed to be reborn in America. Hispanics voted for immigration control and limitation. The African American voted for a re-embrace of Fredrick Douglass freedom and security. Every American should have voted against criminality and corruption. They did not. Thus, freedom and liberty must be re-earned by each and every generation.
“Celebrated evangelical pastor Franklin Graham has declared that the best choice for President in Tuesday’s elections “isn’t difficult to figure out if you are a Christian,” in evident reference to Republican candidate Donald Trump.”
Beware! Beware! As we become entangled with the alligators of political malfeasance, do not ever forget, similar to our leaving King George III and Britain:
“We pledged to drain the swamp.”
Nigel Farage compared the American election to Brexit warning that the “establishment”, liken to the British Supreme Court, would still try to steal the election. With her expressed animosity for Trump, will Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg recuse herself in an election related case? History may well show that “draining the swamp” creeped into the “Final Nine.” The battle “is never over.”
The election results are decried by the Saudis, George Soros and Louis Farrakhan.
America, by too narrow of a margin, choose against the “establishment”, against radical progressivism and for, once again:
“Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
“Those who would trade our freedom for the soup kitchen of the welfare state have told us that they have a utopian solution of peace without victory. They call their policy accommodation. And they say if we only avoid any direct confrontation with the enemy, he will forget his evil ways and learn to love us. We cannot buy our security, our freedom from the threat of the bomb by committing an immorality so great as saying to a billion human beings now in slavery behind the Iron Curtain. Give up your dreams of freedom because to save our own skin, we are willing to make a deal with your slave-masters. Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. (Ronald Reagan)”.
It is a historical pivot. Enjoy the victory….and ingrain forever on our collective memories our escape from the agony of defeat.
Freedom and security is not for the faint of heart. Have we? Will we, learn anything of truly lasting value?
