Me: Hey Trump, could you do something about the lockdowns?
Trump: Sorry, on the phone with Xi!
Me: maybe talk to the governors, ask the DOJ to sue on our behalf, find a better virologist?
Trump: Gilead just told me we have a cure, only six more months!
Me: Can you do anything?
Trump: We have the best vaccines in the world!
(Eight months later)
Me: ... any update?
Trump: Vote for Sleepy Joe if you want to stay locked down!
Me: How about “none of the above.”
The modern left is scary. They wield so much power, and they use it to force us to do ridiculous things.
We can also see though that their perspective comes from a sense of deep insecurity. At their core, they are afraid. Afraid of COVID. Afraid of being offended. Afraid of their ideas being challenged. Their ideas disarm them of the ability to build mental, physical, and emotional strength.
Perhaps the question should not be “how do we defeat them” but “how do we HELP them?”

Dan Carlin just tells us how everyone saying there will be a civil war is the problem, then in same podcast says that we are headed to civil war.
“Come on, man!”
