I love old movies for the same reason. Liberals complain about those awful old censorship codes, but I think they actually resulted in better movies. Back then movie-makers could not rely on violence, language, and nudity, but had to keep viewers’ interest using only plot, dialogue, humor, suspense, acting, etc. I hardly even go to the movies anymore because of the subtle and not-so-subtle preaching about how evil conservatives, whites, Christians, men, gun-owners, Southerners, etc. are.

I wonder if someday old movies and TV shows will be banned because they will show what our country used to be like, and that it wasn’t the evil, bigoted, hateful place everyone will be taught it was.

With early voting(fraud)the election was over long before Nov. 6th.

The dems have a word for REAL free and fair elections...they call that being "disenfranchised".

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing".

""And when the free stuff ran out there were not any conservatives left to
make the economy good again for another round""

Yes, the majority of Americans have conservative values and most don't even know it.
Nobody is telling young Americans and reminding all Americans what conservatives
truly stand for. Dems have their machine and we have none.

The way to do that is to have CONSERVATIVE groups sponsor educational classes in the social studies and history to Re-Educate kids who are put through the anti-western, anti-Judaeo-Christian, anti-American educational system.

They could be offered on weekends. Even the children of conservatives are exposed to this left-wing junk history in the public school systems and we are losing them.

Several nurses came up to her and her husband and asked if they were actually married. It seems that a married couple is now quite a curiosity in the maternity ward.”

That is scary, and rings true from what I've seen as well.

Bottom line — we cannot be defeatists. I've written more on that here:

A few of my points from that thread:

I am getting sick and tired of listening to defeatism and negativism among conservatives. Just exactly why is it that we are on the defensive? ... Defeatism is a device of the Devil, designed to disarm us."

We read this from the lips of Jesus Christ in Matthew 16:18-19: “...and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

The gates of hell are not offensive weapons, but defensive. We're supposed to be taking the fight to the enemy, not huddling in caves afraid the enemy will find us.

That role of hiding in caves is for the **OTHER SIDE** — read Revelation 6:15-17:

“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”


Some more points relevant here to the culture war:

But we also need to be realists. Ronald Reagan fought liberal efforts to take over the entertainment industry because he knew how much damage Hollywood can do. Well, we lost that battle, and we're reaping the consequences in our broader secular culture.

We need faith, family, and government — all three — to work properly in order to have a functioning nation. A collapse in the first or second area will lead to an eventual collapse in the third.

I think much of the defeatism we see comes from the fact that if a complete incompetant with a horrific record can be re-elected over a highly qualified candidate, what chance do we have? To me it was a shocking indication that we have reached a tipping point where the inmates now run the asylum.
