I’ve been focusing a lot lately on the 2020 election and how, unless something changes, we’re going to see another lesser-of-two-evils election between a Democrat and a Democrat with an “R” after his name. At least, that’s likely to be what the Unibrow establishment will try to force on us.
As a person dedicated to promoting conservative values over political parties and holding people of every political stripe accountable when they fail to uphold those values, I’m involved in several movements working to take back our country from the career politicians and political elitists who have hijacked our republic for their own personal gain.
This was the motivation behind an article I wrote at the beginning of the year where I laid out my resolutions for 2019 — advance conservatism, Federalist ideals, and an Article V convention — as a roadmap to keep us on course as we fight the Democrat/Republican duopoly
I’ve seen some success with advancing conservatism. Daily readership at the Strident Conservative has grown, and my daily two-minute radio feature, distributed by Salem Radio Network, is heard on dozens of radio stations from coast to coast. I’ve also been blessed to add writers like Lita Adriana and Tom Milligan to the list of conservative voices contributing to the website.
In the Federalist ideals arena, I recently endorsed the possible candidacy of Rep. Justin Amash for President in 2020 on the Libertarian ticket. Though the establishment clearly has the deck stacked in their favor, we will never beat them if we continue to play their game. And despite claims to the contrary, voting my conscience is the ultimate expression of liberty and is never a wasted vote.
My resolution regarding an Article V convention has been modified. I’m a little less enamored with the Convention of States project after they moved away from promoting limited government and toward becoming a propaganda arm for Donald Trump. Instead, I’ve redirected my support in the direction of the U.S. Term Limits. This group is dedicated to ending the stranglehold of incumbency used by the establishment and career politicians that prevents us from voting for representatives who reflect our values.
Insanity has been defined as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. If true, that means Washington has become a political cuckoo’s nest. But it also means we are equally insane if we continue playing the establishment’s game.
Insanity is curable for those willing to be treated — which leaves Washington out — but to be cured, we must decide to do things differently than we’ve done them in the past.
How about it? Are you ready to end the insanity in 2020?
