The coming of the tide
The Message, Not the Messenger
Remember that when Reagan ran for President, he was already independently wealthy, had worked in politics for many years, and was perfectly content in the early 1970s to simply work the land at his ranch and enjoy his retirement. He campaigned in 1976 because of his anger at the ineptitude of the Ford Administration. He didn't need to run, but he did it anyway.
His message made sense in a way that the last few standard-bearers of the Republican Party simply have not been able to match. Compare his upbeat, straightforward, unapologetic patriotism and belief in free enterprise with the constant uncomfortable dodging and ducking that both John McCain and Mitt Romney went through when asked point-blank about their considerable wealth. The latter two "conservatives" couldn't defend the values that they supposedly represented, and that is ultimately why they lost- because they were totally unconvincing as spokesmen for their party.
It is time for war- and not with words, either.
This war is here, now, today. The "moderates", the cuckservatives, are far more prone to attacking us, their supposed allies, than they are to taking the fight to the true enemy. In such a war, they are unreliable at best, traitorous at worst. They cannot and should not be trusted.
There is no point fighting such a war through the electoral process- that is irretrievably broken. Given the rampant voter fraud that we know occurred during the 2012 election, there is no integrity whatsoever in that system. It cannot be trusted; progressives and SJWs have ensured that they have a hammerlock on it now. And they got there by waging, and winning, a 40-year-long war on the culture.
Which brings us to the next important theme...
I have seen enough of that nonsense to last two lifetimes.
It says a very great deal about how far America has fallen that a reality TV star and a "tycoon" who has actually filed for business bankruptcy several times, is now considered the best possible candidate for a conservative nomination.
Instead of attempting to apologise to black people for sins both real and perceived- mostly the latter, really- real conservatives need to forcefully articulate that there is a real race war going on right now. And it is a war in which blacks are, unquestionably, the aggressors. It is a war that they will lose, if the white majority finally loses patience and begins dealing with the problem properly.
Ben Carson is not the man to articulate any of this.
The K-selected Backlash
When you consider that I'm only in my early thirties, and can expect to live a good long while yet, that is a scary thought indeed.
I would remind you that extremism in the defence of liberty is no vice... and let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.
-- Barry Goldwater, speech to the Republican National Convention, 1964
