Understand and Defend Optimism

Some say – 2020 was bad, 2021 looks worse.  Perhaps. They call themselves realists.  But let us not be defeatists. From fiery beginnings through WWII’s hardest-bitten battles, defeating infiltrators to derailing socialism (on multiple occasions), America has rallied whenever freedom is at risk. In the end, optimism is what turns the dial, takes the next hill, changes everything.  Keep it.

Yes, power-hungry socialists have managed to commandeer the Democrat Party, now hollow, haughty, and dangerous.  That is bad, sad, and needs reversal.  Yes, China, Russia, Iran, and North Kora are looming, existential threats.  Their influence must be contained, then rolled back.  Yes, ignorance – and misleading media – stalk the land.  Moral leadership is needed.  Okay, and?

Take a page from history.  Note in parallel situations, determination powered by understanding and undeterred confidence is the deciding force.  Battles are won not at the outset, not midway, seldom at fringes, but in the final, unmitigated drive – empowered by a belief in victory.

When I served as Assistant Secretary of State, running a $2 billion operational bureau, my charge was to set up police training in Iraq and Afghanistan – and operationalize (or help support) rule of law in 70 countries.  We succeeded more than failed, even facing threats, backsteps, foreign doubters, domestic detractors, public corruption, and fear.  It can be done.

With a glance back – to empower current thinking – consider where we are.  What we confront in 2021 is a battle of ideas.  We have the ones that work – and power of history, liberty, prosperity, and common sense on our side.  Self-determination, rule of law, capitalism lift people. Concentrated power never does.

So, sit up with me.  This is not WWII, even WWI, never mind Civil War or American Revolution. Yes, liberties are at risk, but we have more tools, popular following, political leverage – not to mention fresh determination – than ever before.  Tough times hit free countries.  When they do, free citizens must speak for freedom, meet emotion with fact.  That is democracy.  Getting spun up and discouraged undermines cohesion, commitment, and victory. We cannot afford that.

So, we live in challenging times.  The socialist monster is afoot again – as in the 1930s, 1950s, 1960′s, even 1970s if you count Black Panthers, Weather Underground, Black Liberation Movement, and socialist, communist offshoots.  Bombings, three assassinations were unsettling.

But freedom-loving Americans stood up for their way of life.  Today, we are objectively stronger, more conscious, organized, unified, and determined.  We can communicate, educate, and defend.  As always, we have truth on our side.

So, here are concrete reasons for optimism.

First, natural law – rights in the Bill of Rights – are timeless.  Humans 1000 years from now will want free speech, assembly, travel, worship, self-defense, fair treatment when accused, and all the God-given rights individuals crave.  They will hate hypocrisy, want accountability, strain for freedom – as we do.  That longing cannot be crushed, bought, or legislated away.

Second, the world is awash in gibberish, nonsensical, if dangerous untruths. But it always has been.  Glance at the Bible, histories of Egypt, Rome, Europe, China, and life. Power corrupts, and humans suppress rights to acquire to it.  Not new.  Do not think we are more subject to political chicanery, propaganda, or bloviating officialdom than other eras.  It is just our time.

Third, we have organizations like AMAC – with tools like social media, local, state, and national connection and action, a deep reservoir of energy – to lift those around us, push for limited government, individual liberty, truth, and accountability.  We can reinforce and channel hope.

Finally, remember this.  The end of patience, persuasion, and engagement is political victory.  Default to political violence is a tool of the left, not America.  Violence is what the left wants, to undermine rule of law, delegitimize institutions, unsettle the settled, instill fear.  The left hates stability, tradition, and law.  We must defend them – and it all starts with optimism.

Bottom line: Can-do is must-do, make-it-happen starts with optimism.  That is not a dodge – it is the fuel that powers right-minded, courageous, can-do people stepping up, stepping out, speaking up, running for office, putting things right.  Ronald Reagan was an optimist, as were Ulysses S. Grant, George Patton, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Winston Churchill– and virtually all our Founders.  If their life lessons are not worth now heeding – whose are?

Yes, evil exists, creeps, and deceives, but those who treasure freedom, who know its pull, should be optimists.  We have the power to define our future.  We give it away if we do not believe in that power.  We own it, until we surrender it.  Good people make things happen – with resolve.

A final thought from time spent in the Reagan and Bush 41 White Houses, US Navy, and seeding rule of law:  Will of people changes everything.  As optimism rises, the world moves.

Until Republicans learn to “fight fire with fire” they are destined to lose! NOT ONCE have I heard ANY Republican politition including President Trump EVER refer to ANY Democrat to what they really have become and that is COMMUNISTS! And Communists don’t pull any punches, they will lie, steal, and cheat to win at all costs! Referring to Democrats as Socialists/Marxists ISN’T strong enough. The “average” Democrat today is stupid. Think not? Then how could any “intelligent” human being vote for these “Far Left”
Lunatics and yet they do! Call them what they really are, COMMUNISTS! But if President Trump “allows” this election to be stolen from him then America is doomed and We the People will have lost ALL our rights and freedoms without even a fight! Optimism? … Whenever I have to listen to ANY Democratic politician speak my blood boils! … No more being “nice guys” Republicans, IT’S TIME TO FIGHT!!!

Interesting comments However—With the communists in charge of Congress and the Executive Branch, once biden and harris get done packing the court-there will be NO Bill of Rights and no Constitution. The Supreme Court flunkies will ‘opine’ it away and then Americans have NO recourse. They have already proven that they have crooked elections and and the ballot box monopolized so even if we can take over the majority in 2 years it will be too late- America died on 03 NOV 2020

You’re talking about realism but to my point all I see is cowards communist and traitors that are gutless cowards treasonous and useless as anything like half breed heals up Harris or demented I don’t have a clue Biden or Nancy Piglosi the drunk or the gay butt pirate Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Communist class let’s talk about all Republicans except for about six that I can see the rest of them are just pure scum that need to be eliminated. I believe that the old saying is that from time to time the blood of patriots must be shed. the illiterate morons that are in the Democrat Party and the idiots that they have concocted out of our school systems, don’t have a clue how our US Constitution works. They think they could just write an EO and Puerto Rico and what D.C. (District of Communism) and call them States. Unfortunately that’s not the way this works it takes 2/3 of the house 2/3 of the Senate and 2/3 of the states to vote on this but with our corrupt communistic society that are politicians belong to and the way they try to control every vote in this country now that they’re communists that shouldn’t be a problem for them. No what it’s going to take is a civil war and a lot of blood being shed on the streets. Do they not realize there are a ton of US military well-trained veterans that were taught how to kill communists. let the fun and games begin because now it’s going to become that Biden won’t last past January 21st and they will put heels up Harris the w**** in there and Michael Obama.

Evil has apparently triumphed- we are standing at a chasm, looking down into the darkness known as Communism, globalism, Socialism and hard Left policies that will affect us all to varying degrees. The Elite Deep-State, with the help of some anarchists are about to change our reality. Don’t believe it? Then sit back and enjoy what is to come. Others are busy preparing.

I have to disagree. I believe we have lost the battle and will not regain any semblance of conservative government in my lifetime. We failed to fight the enemy within our borders. How dare we overlook the blatant fraud voting in key states and certify the result. For this reason I believe we will not recognize the nation in 4 years. Sadly the main stream media and social media are the great enablers. Most Americans don’t have a clue as to what really happened.

I’m on record saying that whoever won the 2020 “big” election would have to implement a platform that depends entirely on the ability to borrow money at the historically low 2% or less we see today. With a $30 billion national debt, by the end of four years, maybe two, the Feds will have to borrow money just to pay the interest, let alone implement a bunch of spendthrift programs. Inflation must be the result, and most of us remember money markets way above 10%.

These are nice words and an attempt to “push back from the table” and put things in perspective. They are calming words. To be clear, I believe what happened yesterday was despicable, We need to investigate who really fostered the riot. Peaceful demonstrations are our right, but storming the capital and bringing in pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails is anarchy. I would not be surprised if Antifa and other terrorist organizations were involved and created the rioting. Will we ever know? Probably not with the media, big tech and now the left in control. We played right into the left’s hands as this will play very poorly in both the US and on the world stage. I do not think we need to debate Trump’s return to politics. While I supported him in the last two elections and appreciate and commend him for all the things he did, he never did what his first campaign promise was and that was to drain the swamp. His actions over the last few days did him in. I do believe that the election was fraudulent, but am perplexed as to why none of the claims were ever able to become apparent in the courts or other venues when some of the judges were even picked by Trump.

We are definitely in a difficult situation and Republicans and conservatives made our future more difficult in the last few day as, not less difficult. We need to make fundamental changes to the system and the only way I can see that is with term limits. We just have to go back to the vision our founding fathers had where serving our country in political offices was a diversion from your normal career – that you did it for a few years and then went back to civilian life. We have to put an end to career politicians. We need to direct our emotions, anger and energy in a direction. In my mind, driving term limits into all of our legislative chambers at the state and federal level is the only way we will get out of this mess.

What a load of manure the British would have loved this guy during the Revolution as far as I can remember this country fought to become what it is on more than one occasion and now its time to purge the country of the communist that are trying to overthrow this Republic and make no mistake you cannot vote corruption out of what is totally corrupt nor can you expect honesty from liars. RISE UP!! The will of the people don’t mean a damn thing to communist if it did Donald Trump would be our President-elect, not that idiot biden

Agreed, we cannot be defeated , our mission for America and freedom must be diligently and consistently fought.
Thought hypocrisy was on full display from the majority of our representatives yesterday.
As cities were destroyed,business looted,police stations occupied,government buildings and statues desecrated- NO condemnation from the socialist democrats, NO prosecution of law breakers, NO demands for national guard!
But alas when it appears to be Real Conservative and concerned Citizens who love this President…..well the criticism runs rampant and the gutless democrats all jump on board.
I for one will remember their cowardice.

Rik, I agree with you. Only I think President Trump identified the Democrats as socialists. The problem is, there are so many new/young people who voted and they listen to the other media and don’t know the accurate history. They voted against Pres. Trump because of his past identity. Not knowing that Biden’s past is worse as he used his position as VP to aid his son, as he used his vehicle, Air Force II, which was also against the law. Now we have to suffer with, YES. Communism. Laws will be broken for their advancement for more votes. Taxes will increase, against Pres. Trump’s lowering taxes so employers can hire more people, thus greater income. That is why the unemployment was so low, and isn’t that a great advantage. Pres. Trump was a big/good businessman, so he was aware of taxation being a disadvantage. Opening the border is against the law as with the original immigration laws screened for illnesses and one had to prove you could become employed. My grandmother came to the US in 1894 and was sponsored by a couple in Hilsboro, ND. My brother visited in Norway, where she lived and her family showed him where this gentleman lived who arranged for sponsors. And how in the world did the last incentive payment approved and sent to President Trump. How much stayed in it as some is already issued as $600. Researched to realize the actual need. People are self sufficient and below their top income to be elligible for the payment. It should go to people who have lost their income with the destruction of their businesses. What does $600. or even $2,000. pay when their loss is in the many thousands compared to original bill gave millions to several countries, +

The leftist now own everything that happens in the next 2 years! Bad economy, COVID failures, any riots, culture rot – all will be owned by the left after Biden is inaugurated Jan. 20, 2021. Trump needs to drift to the background and watch the left fight among themselves and cause all kinds of ill to the people. It will be hard to bear but when the clowns that voted for this tyranny see how hard they make life and there’s no Trump to kick around (praying he stays silent), them come 2022 – Democrats should lose the legislature and we will all be better off coming into 2024! Those who think government really cares about them, will have reality shoved in their face! GOOD, we always get what we voted for!

What I think our country needs is a shift of attention. Instead of drawing attention to what’s wrong, bring attention to and support what is good and right about our country.
Bring attention to the people, politicians, community members, teachers, etc. that are speaking and doing the right things in our world, our country, our immunities! Encourage what is good in us to grow.

I appreciate the optimism, but what scares me this time is the fraud. This is way different than anything we have experienced in the past. If the evil democrats have been so successful in stealing two elections (counting the GA recount), what is to stop them in the future? We were supposed to have the Supreme Court on our side. Their cowardice was predominate when they caved to threats from the democrats. Heaven help us!

It’s over, Folks. Republicans went to their knees last night. We are now a one party government. Those republicans who went back on their word to contest this election should have the sense to know that the violent rioters were Antifa members not Trump supporters. Instead they betrayed their constituents and their country, curled up like cowards and handed our country over to the New Democratic Communist Party. I will never vote again. What is the use? They all will be rigged like 2020…………IF there are anymore elections.

Here is the real issue. The Rule of Law no longer exists. It has been compromised by the very Officials that were placed or voted into to protect the very thing that was ignored and completely disregarded.
Can the author explain the judgement of a Federal Judge in Washington D.C who with exceptional Credentials completely ignored the rule of law and impose Politics instead? Or how about the Federal Jude in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that completely, ignored the Pennsylvanian Legislature and not only allowed Mail in Ballots and extended that States voting to : Two Weeks.
All the words being spilled, are meant to inflame, an action!
It was the ” LAW” that contributed to this disaster. Please , help me to understand. Police Under-funded by corrupt Politicians, Law,s Ignored by Politicians and Judges? Systems that have been so badly compromised by 3 Foreign Powers ” Russia, China & Venezuela” and the LAW ignores those invasions as if the invasion never existed!
My concern: We will no longer be the ” United States of America” We will become, because of the do ,nothings! The new” United Democrat States or North America”.

Wrong buck! The communists, marxist, socialists, statists, call them what you will, have taken over the government using tactics that they have been trying out and honing in state elections for years. Check out washington state gubernatorial election of christine gregoire(d) vs dino rossi(r) several years ago; rossi won by a landslide in the general election, then over the next several weeks more ballots were “found” behind file cabinets, in desk drawers, in the trunks of poll workers cars, in back rooms of polling stations, etc. until they finally had enough to overturn rossi and “coronate” gregoire. I am sure they have done this in other states too. Since there have been no backlashes to these tactics they realized the could get away with it at the national level.
After the shock of 2016, where the people told the establishement and marxists to “shove it”. The democrats and deep state realized that their cheating wasn’t strong enough to elect a weak candidate like hillary(or biden) even though the tactics got obama elected a 2nd time. So they came up with a strategy of “overwhelming the enemy”, ie. trump and the deplorables that stand in their way of ultimate power, to the point that they covered the only way conservatives could overturn their cheating at the polls by intimidating even supreme court “justice” john(chicken shit) roberts who lied during his confirmation by saying that he was a constitutional originalist(which he has proven to be anything but) so that he refused to even hear the evidence regarding vote manipulation.
Now that antifa, blm and other “brown shirt” groups infiltrated the trump rally in d.c. and attacked the capitol bldg, the msm, also know as pravda, claim it was trump supporters, not antifa, blm, etc. The communist, socialist, marxist movement feel they are so close to taking unbridled power that their boldness has no bounds. Their gloves and masks have come off. They will do everything they can to eradicate any threat to their power.
Remember, the msm now calls the shots, they lied about all the “riots” pre election in democrat cities all across the country being “peaceful”.
One final thought, when our founders were crafting the constitution, they were giving the people the right to self governance, they did not “take power” for themselves. When lenin, stalin, trotsky, hitler, mao, castro, chavez, pick your communist regime, “freed their countries from the current ruling regime”, THEY TOOK POWER FOR THEMSELVES, THEY DID NOT ALLOW SELF GOVERNANCE, THEY TOOK POWER FOR THEMSELVES!!!!!

Why are Conservatives unable to bring the fraud to courts or lawsuits? The Democrats are constantly filing lawsuits…now Pelosi is pushing impeachment again. Do the Republicans lack the backbone??
And still no mention even by AMAC of the fact that if the Georgia ballots were inspected by Jovan Pulitzer..he would be able instantly to tell if the ballots were fakes .Jovan Pulitzer has over 200 patents & over12 billion handheld devices use his technology..we each use it every day…one example the bar code the grocery store uses when you check out. His technology is used to determine if paper money is legal or illegal. Watch the Georgia hearings to see his testimony, hear the facts…then find out after this was made public.after he was asked by a Georgia state subcommittee to audit absentee ballots in Fulton County, video of shredding trucks pulled up to temporary facility where ballot were stored, loaded them up and took them away.

Being demoralized and fighting the enemy on their own terms are the two key ingredients of defeat. Christianity has withstood the efforts to defeat it for over 2,000 years by not falling into this trap. If we all keep our eyes on the prize of liberty and instead seek to make the other side fight on our terms, victory will be ours. We have the numbers and know the means they used to inflate theirs. At every turn we should seek to flip the script on our terms. The other side changed the rules to appoint 1 Supreme Court judge. Our side used those same rules to appoint 3. Everything they do, we can do better with organization, patience, and adherence to our code of decency towards our fellow citizens.

Yes, we have defeated socialism and communism in the past, but then we had real leadership in the oval office and congress. Today, the oval office with Biden and the congress are for socialism, so how can we be so optimistic. I thought we had a conservative Supreme Court, but they refused to investigate the fraud for which there were affidavits. What can we conservatives do at this point? The liberal congress, democratic party and media have things just where they want them, so what are we to do. We conservatives can look forward to a miserable life under Biden and the democrats who will have the majority in both the house and senate. I am hearing so many people say they will never vote again because of the fraud in the elections of 2020. What will that do for the country., I am not only very angry, but quite frankly for the first time in my 80 years, I am scared of our government..

What in Gods name is the idiot author of this article smoking? Yesterday, the republicans rolled over

of most of our lifetimes. The only way this nation will see democracy again is thru an all out
civil war that cleans out Washington, the media, and the left wing teachers and professors who have
brain washed so many young people. The republican party died yesterday the RINOS just don’t know

As conservatives, our best bet to improve our government is to concentrate on straightening out the local and state election process because I have found that the federal legislators just want to pass the buck down to the states and they don’t want to deal with it. Usually, the Secretary of State is in charge of the elections and he/she is more likely to listen when their own election is coming some day. At the very least, they need to stop mailing out voter registration forms to people that are dead or haven’t voted for over 15 years. That is just asking for fraud and how is it discouraging voters that haven’t voted for decades anyway? A lot of those last minute voters probably only vote for those candidates that they think are funnier or more lovable.

The Dems won again!!!! What happened yesterday is exactly what they wanted to happen! Possibly even staged it!!! Yes..,,I don’t put anything past them!!! They stick together and fight dirty and will stoop to the lowest of levels to get the result they want. So that’s just old news!! The biggest problem I have is how our Republicans in office, once again caved!!! They decided not to challenge the vote and stand by our exceptional president! Did they forget how the Dems stood by when trump supporters were getting physically attacked in the streets and payed it no mind and insisted it was just peaceful protests – how we Watched cities being totally destroyed by leftist groups!!! I have lost respect & I am so disappointed in so many of our elected officials. I can’t even imagine how the people who actually went to Washington feel after being abandoned. I pray in the future we have term limits & that future republican & conservatives in office truly stand up to what is right. This election was stolen from us!!! And it won’t be accepted no matter how the Dems & their allies spin it!

After reading most of these posts I see frustration, anger, disillusionment, and betrayal by most of the contributors. I feel the same, but I still have faith that good will over come in the end. Several factors make today a more serious situation than in previous crises. One, more of the population have rejected and do not believe in God. The constitution was built on the premise that people believed in the ten commandments and had integrity based on a religious foundation. Two, the family was the center and foundation of our society. Today that is not the case, very few families are whole with a mother and father who love each other and are dedicated to raising their children to believe in God and his commandments. Three, representatives are elected, not by God fearing moral principles, but for power and what they can do to help a welfare state. Lip service is not service, grandstanding is not representation, and statesmanship is not politically dividing a nation as it currently stands. In spite of these serious departures from moral principle, since the end of World War II, God is still with us and he will preserve this nation as a nation of peace and prosperity if we will return to Him through peaceful activism and developing charity for one another. This article addressed these issues overall and I concur with his thinking. Thank you for the positive thoughts. We the people still have the power of our own destiny. Don’t blame it on others.
