Watching the chaos being unleashed on this country by the Biden administration, it's hard to keep one's cool. Consider:
- Hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are being not just admitted to this country willy-nilly, but actively encouraged to cross our borders.
- The Federal Reserve is creating trillions of dollars out of thin air with no economic reality underpinning them, a sure recipe for inflation.
- Billions upon billions of dollars, ostensibly intended for "stimulus" or "infrastructure", are being wasted on pet projects and political cronyism.
- Assaults on constitutional rights like the Second Amendment (despite the President's denial) are increasing.
- A biased justice system seems determined to punish conservatives while letting progressives get away (sometimes literally) with murder.
- A visibly senile, incompetent President is attracting the scorn of the rest of the world, and provoking threatening actions by other powers who seem confident that the USA is no longer capable of responding effectively under his leadership.
We're not just sliding, but accelerating down the slope to disaster, and nobody in authority seems to care. Add to that the threats of progressive activists, and our future looks worse by the day. When leaders like this get elected to run some of America's largest cities, promising to overturn the old order while offering nothing worth having in the new, what else can we expect?
In that light, I found Larry Correia's latest quip on MeWe to be grimly relevant:
I used to think America was heading for a Bosnia style civil war. But that was me being too optimistic. Now I suspect we will wake up one day and it’ll be Rwanda.
I saw what happened in Rwanda. God forbid I should ever see that again . . . but in a fractured, tormented nation, even in the First World, it's not impossible.
Keep your powder dry, friends. We may yet need it.
