When America elected Barack Obama president in 2008, I thought he was a run of the mill democratic socialist in the globalist mold, the likes of which have been running Western Europe for decades. In that I was mistaken. It is now becoming clear that European democratic socialism is only the sugary external coating of the deadly poison that is Islamic Jihadism, the poison with which the global elites intended and still intend to kill, once and for all, the system of governance by empowered individuals that got its practical underpinnings in Ancient Greece, its grandeur in Rome, its ferocious independence in Northern Europe and its ethical and moral foundations in Judea. This is the system of governance the Romans, somewhat disdainfully, called the res publica, the public thing, more than implying that a Roman citizen would much rather spend all his time, before lunch anyway, dealing with his private business, before devoting the rest of the day to pleasures, both carnal and intellectual. The private thing was what honorable people wanted to do, and yet there were aqueducts to build and slave revolts to put down and neighbors to subdue, so the public thing, no matter how distasteful, had to be dealt with, and somebody had to do it, somebody reasonably capable, somebody who had skin in the game, and so the democratic republic was born. ..

It would seem that at least one person on this planet believes that we are not doomed to live in a limit cycle of misery, that we are not doomed to repeat the past mistakes of unbridled greed, that we can redirect the energy of the thing public to accomplish incredible good for mankind. That man is President Trump, and I, for one, choose to believe with him.

I do too.
