We must get out of the two-party, voting is everything mindset. National elections have taken on the attributes of mere sporting events, who is on offense/defense, celebrities, who will make next year's player draft, etc. Meanwhile, what is left of our republic suffers.
While I many sit out the midterm election, I doubt I could sit out the presidential election, despite the increasing irrelevancy of elections.
Einstein had a term for expecting different results to emerge from doing the same thing. Restoration of our republic and freedoms cannot emerge from DC.
If we are to restore freedom, our only hope is to reduce focus on national elections and direct more efforts toward our states.
Until an Article V state amendment convention restores federalism and returns far more power to the states, we are doomed to a dictatorship.
I can’t disagree with anything you say. To get some real “change”(I hate that term), we need to get the half of the country off of entitlements. That is what is killing us.
“If we are to restore freedom, our only hope is to reduce focus on national elections and direct more efforts toward our states.”
State and local political offices are where the real power lies. If conservatives control the majority of states and local offices that will act as a checkmate against the fascist federal government. That’s how the Founders fought the tyranny of King George. A thousand brushfires can be set. The federal fascists don’t have the manpower or logistics to extinguish them.
For some reason, though, that strategy completely flies over the heads of most conservatives. The Founders left a blueprint on how to fight tyrants. It starts with organization, local control and Committees of Safety.
