The election is over and democracy did its job. There was only one small hitch, the wrong guy won.
Oh, don’t get me wrong! I voted for Trump too. And I can’t help feeling that doing so was the same as dropping a guillotine blade on a French royal’s neck circa July 1789. I have spent the week since the election searching for a historical rhyme and that’s the best I can do. Trump did something no other person has done in the history of this country: he singlehandedly brought down two political family dynasties, the Bushes and the Clintons. There is no precedent for that. There is also no precedent for how totally unexpected his victory was. I do a lot of reading, watching, and surfing and I only heard three places making predictions of a Trump victory: 1) the Trump campaign; 2) SJW meatbag Michael Moore; and 3) that hilarious White Nationalist/Alt Right website dailystormer.
So if Trump wasn’t “supposed” to win (just like the UK wasn’t supposed to Brexit), what does that mean for us? Is everything about the loathsome political status quo suddenly in jeopardy now? Or was it all just a magic trick? Will the powers-that-be comply with the wishes of the peasants and quietly step down?
I was tempted to write a post about the threat of the next two months. About the myriad ways a delegitimized administration can (in no particular order) invalidate the election, suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, and kick off WWIII but I think you can go find all kinds of people on the internet who beat me to it.
So instead, let’s focus on our own safety and happiness in the immediate future.
If you feel surrounded and threatened by disgruntled rampaging Hillary supporters, there are a few things you can do.
- Move. Look at the map above. If you live in or near one of the blue spots, you also live in a high crime location (the red circles). Why? Because liberalism and racial tolerance go hand in hand. And we all know what racial tolerance leads to. Find the reddest, most Trump-supporting place in your part of the country and relocate to it. By doing so, you will be guaranteed of being surrounded by friendly, like-minded people. People who cherish liberty, being left alone, and their Second Amendment right to self-defense. In other words, you will have found home. I plan on doing this very thing soon (blog posts to follow!)
- Fight. I will never advocate violence on this blog. However, when faced with violence, we often have little choice but to respond in kind. Choice of weapons is up to you but you really should have started training with them long ago.
I suppose just sitting tight and riding it out is also an option. But you would be taking a big risk. What if help never comes? What if this country remains split right down the middle for the next four (or 40) years? What if your blue state reacts to the Trump Revolution by banning your choice of weapon and declaring you a criminal? If you live in California, you now have to submit to a background check just to buy ammo!
While I am relieved that all went well (for the country as a whole) last Tuesday, I am dismayed that things are continuing to deteriorate in many places. My best advice? Find a way to get out of those places, and do it soon. You may never get another chance.
