For those who don't already know it, the headline to this post is an acronym meaning "There Is No Voting Our Way Out Of This". We're in an existential struggle for the life of the American constitutional republic, and facing enemies on all sides. Unless and until we wake up to the fact that we're in a war, and going to have to react accordingly, we will lose every time. What's more, so far, that war has been relatively peaceful - but there's no guarantee it'll remain that way.
The progressive leftists who fraudulently took control of our Administration are tireless in their efforts, and determined to make us obey their every whim. Any and every act of resistance, or refusal to see things their way, will be treated as rebellion, domestic terrorism, extremism, racism, or any other -ism they can use against us. As the anonymous blogger who writes at NC Renegade points out:
The United States of America is dead. It no longer exists. We are now ruled by Communist. You best get your mind wrapped around that. You only have the illusion of freedom as long as you do as you are told and be a good little peasant. If you are here reading this, you are an enemy of the state. Sooner or later they will come for you and decisions will have to be made. These Communist hate us, they hate everything we stand for. They aim to eradicate us. They don’t even hide their intentions anymore, they tell us on the mainstream media what they intend to do. Are you listening? If you think you can just be silent and obedient and they will leave you alone, you best think again. These people hate you and they are out to replace you. They want everything that we stand for GONE!
So what are we to do? I don’t know. Our side lacks organization, always has, and it seems we always will. Everyone on our side seems to always be the smartest person in the room and it’s always their way or no way. I don’t know how we get around that.
I understand everyone wants peace, but we are not going to take our Republic back by remaining pacifist. There can be no peace as long as our country remains in control of those who falsely gained control ... I don’t know what we Americans, we Patriots should do. I do know that you can’t remain silent. Our founders were willing to die for the rights espoused in the Declaration they crafted and signed at their own peril. Our founders were called traitors and radicals, no worse than what we are being called today. When it comes down to it, many Americans simply don’t have the spine or fortitude to stand up and fight, even with FREEDOM on the line. Our children and grandchildren deserve better from us. What will you say when they ask what you did to take back our country from the Communist?

If you think NC Renegade is exaggerating, you haven't been paying attention. How many of you noticed this report from New York City yesterday?
The principal of East Side Community School in New York sent white parents a manifesto that calls on them to become “white traitors” and advocate for full “white abolition.”
“This is the new language of public education,” tweeted Christopher F. Rufo along with an image showing “the 8 white identities,” which range from “white supremacist” to “white abolition.”
The accompanying text, which has been circulated before by left-wing extremists, defines the behavior white people must practice in order to put an end to “the regime of whiteness.”
The two final stages, “white traitor” and “white abolitionist,” demands that white people “subvert white authority,” “dismantle institutions,” dismantle whiteness and not allow whiteness to reassert itself.
. . .
Teaching of such self-hatred is now becoming commonplace in schools as kids are brainwashed that they’re inherently bad for being born white.

To make matters worse, both political parties (Republican no less than Democrat) are determined to continue their rule as an effective "Uniparty", where they'll effectively support each other's policies and go on getting rich at our expense. Mitch McConnell succeeded in destroying the Tea Party movement years ago, seeing it as a threat to his dominance of the Senate Republican caucus, and he's now trying to do exactly the same thing to MAGA supporters.
The Democrats are trying to achieve the same result by demonizing former President Trump. They believe, if they can discredit him and knock him out of the political arena, they'll effectively derail his supporters and prevent them having any further populist influence in US politics. They're wrong, of course; but they haven't figured that out yet. (They might have got a clue, if they were watching during yesterday's Presidents Day parade in Florida.)
Even if voting isn't a guaranteed way to fix our present problems, I'm more and more convinced that part of our solution to our national tragedy must be a genuine "third rail": a new political party, drawing in centrist, populist Democrats and Republicans. We've been betrayed by both progressives and conservatives, both liberals and traditionalists. Let's abandon them all, and forge a new way forward. I don't expect President Trump to lead it, but I'm sure he'll have a major part to play in putting momentum behind it and getting the effort off the ground - provided, that is, his political enemies don't engineer his assassination (something I fear they won't hesitate to do, if they think they can get away with it).
As for the rest of us . . . we need to be watchful. Let's do our best to stamp on any extremist agenda in our local communities, and encourage our states to assert their constitutional rights and freedoms over a power-hungry federal state that no longer cares a fig for the constitution. Let's also figure out which of our elected officials needs to be kicked out, and primary the heck out of them and their offices. If we don't want to run for office ourselves, let's support others who do, and take back every elected position we can. Every one we recapture helps to slow the march of Leviathan through our communities. Take back enough of them, and who knows what might happen? For a start, a properly functioning School Board could sort out the cretins who call upon white parents to abolish themselves!
However, remember the headline to this article. "There Is No Voting Our Way Out Of This." In the end, the ballot box almost certainly won't be enough, because the powers that be have already shown beyond a shadow of doubt that they're prepared to subvert, cheat and overturn elections to get their way. That leaves us with few options, except direct action. I still hope and pray we can avoid that; but those now in power are grimly determined to hold on to it at any cost. They're unlikely to give up without a fight.
That's a grim last step that nobody in his or her right mind wants to see. However, in the end, it may be that resistance becomes the only option they leave open to us. God forbid! - but start thinking about how it would affect you if it comes to that. I don't think we're going to see a second Civil War along the lines of the first, with formal armies and marching and battles. Instead, we're going to see urban unrest, fourth generation warfare, and constant internecine terrorism. I'm here to tell you from long and bitter personal experience, that's no way to live . . . but I can see it happening here. If you have the chance, even if it costs you money you can't afford, consider moving to a safer area, where your loved ones will be less exposed to that sort of thing.
Of course, the progressive left can see that coming, too. That's why they're so determined to disarm the US populace. A disarmed person is a serf, a slave, unable to protect himself or his family. Expect legislation to outlaw so-called "assault rifles", high-capacity magazines and other paraphernalia. Will Americans comply? On the basis of past experience, I doubt it. If possible, I suggest you move to a state that's likely to defend your right to keep and bear arms, even if the central government tries to abolish or restrict it.
