November 8th. A day that will live in infamy. A day that the people, for once in many many decades, gained a chance to have a fighting chance against one of the most corrupt and evil entities in our History.
A lot of people thought the fight was over, that we had been saved, but in reality it was just the beginning of a decades long war. It remains to be seen, who wins it.
I would like to take this time to remind people that President Trump is but a man. One man didn't get us here and one man is not going to get us out......WE ARE.
Have patience with the President. He's literally in the swamp. But, have some urgency in your own life and have more scrutiny for what you are doing with your life because ultimately whether or not President Trump succeeds rests solely on our shoulders. That is the burden of a Republic.
An informed and engaged electorate who with tireless vigilance are everyday fighting that natural inclination of man to rule over other men.
Which brings me to my main message here.
It's not just a cliché that united we stand divided we fall.
The New Right is in the beginning stages of trying to institutionalize this MAGA movement. That's no easy feat. If you are active on Twitter you have seen of late some drama on the New Right between some of the more prominent names in this movement. I'm not going to name names.
I'm going to say this though...If we are going to fight this war and have any chance of winning, we are going to have to develop a stoic emotional/mental strength.
If you want to be a leader in this movement then lead. Don't wait for the feedback from others, don't expect the world to praise you, and don't get your feelings hurt if you don't get invited to a party. It's just a stinking party.
With any group of people who are working towards a goal there is going to be drama. We are human. It's inevitable but we can minimize or blow it up on a grand scale which only hurts the ultimate cause we are all working towards.
I understand your beefs may be legitimate. I also understand that life is not fair. I have a childhood that can attest to that but I can dwell/complain about it OR I can move on. I can't do both.
People that get turned off within the movement because of the drama should probably be following Bill Mitchell. That's a much more Utopian environment over there. You want to talk about drama? Read about the feuds between Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. They eventually couldn't even be in the same room together though they mended fences before death which is a strange and wonderful story within itself.
The drama is part of the human condition and we need to learn how to curtail these destructive forces because they only divide and distract us from a goal we need all of our attention to be on. Aaron Burr killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel lest you think this is only some recent phenomenon. The drama of late while fiery is nothing compared to the dramatic stories from human history.
I want to be a leader in this movement too. I would hope to have the respect from the other more prominent leaders who are inspiring and leading and effecting the political world in ways no one since our founding fathers have seemed to be able to do. I would feel disappointed if I felt I had earned a spot at the inner circle and I was rejected but this movement is not about me and in this war we are going to need more of a don't take it personal attitude. Saddle up. I remember hearing John Walsh say this was what he had to do to carry on describing his journey in healing after his young son was brutally murdered. Your feelings aren't what's important here in the midst of this culture/political war.
We need more stoic soldiers willing to overlook the drama because....united we stand , divided we fall. It's what the picture up above is all about. Everyone has a role to play and they are all important. Even if you are being wronged, sometimes it's best to just suck it up and move on. Not being invited to a party is one of those times.
Pick your battles wisely and know the hill you want to die on. While I want social approval from those I respect, it is not the hill I want to die on so ....Saddle up.
Yes it was written along time ago but we would be wise to read and adopt as many of these habits as we can....
