A prayer before (midterm) action
Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,
For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory,
Forever and ever,
-- The Lord's Prayer
Two years ago, on the eve of the election of our magnificent and benevolent God-Emperor, Donaldus Triumphus Magnus, I posted up a prayer to Our Father in which I asked Him to help America do the right thing. This is not the same post, but it is a prayer, and I post it for similar reasons.
Now, I would be stating the absolutely bloody obvious if I pointed out that President Trump did not win because of my prayers. The fact is that the much-ballyhooed "victory" of the globalist Left was unlikely to happen, for reasons that, in hindsight, seem very clear.
But at the time, President Trump faced truly incredible odds, and defied them all. He had everything against him in that election, and he still won. His victory was seen by the (((media))) and the Left as anything ranging from a miracle to an utter catastrophe, but it was totally unexpected by virtually every mainstream commentator.
It was quite expected by us on the Hard Right. We knew things that the mainstream did not. And we know today that the much-anticipated Blue Wave that Democrats and their masters on the Left are counting on, is rather unlikely. We do not know exactly what will happen, but it looks as though the Republicans will keep and probably expand their majority in the Senate, and there is a good chance that they will actually end up keeping the House too.
That does not mean that we on the Right can be complacent. We cannot. The House of Representatives controls the approvals process for the budgets, and if that falls, President Trump's most important promise - the BIG BEAUTIFUL WALL!!! - will never happen.
The God-Emperor cannot win without us - well, really, the God-Emperor cannot win without you. I am not American. I cannot vote.
But you can.
It is easy to argue that this election does not matter. Most elections do not. Such things are mostly a sham, designed to give people the illusion of control and power. And, indeed, in most countries around the world, that is precisely what they are. The people pretend that their vote matters, and the politicians pretend that they care what the voters say.
From the perspective of the rest of the world, Americans have a quite bizarre fascination with electoral politics. There is always an election happening somewhere in the USA. To the rest of the world, where notions of self-governance and personal responsibility range from mildly amusing to utterly unthinkable, this seems completely weird.
In Europe and much of Asia, elections are mostly exercises in population control. Indeed, in Europe, until very recently, there was really not much difference between political parties. They were all either centre-Left or centre-Right, and they all pretty much agreed on a fairly narrow range of opinions and ideas. They disagreed only in terms of degrees. Only recently have true alternatives risen to power in Italy, Austria, and now Brazil.
For a very long time, elections in most of the world - including America - seemed totally pointless. The events of that magnificent night two years ago changed everything. Elections do have consequences, and your voice can be heard.
It seems very odd for me to write those words. I used to argue, for a very long time, that elections just did not matter. There was no use in voting at all, because nothing ever changed. And for years, I was right.
Then the God-Emperor came along, and promptly set about proving me completely and comprehensively WRONG by being the #WINNING!-est President since Saint Reagan of the Right.
This year, the stakes actually matter. The God-Emperor needs the votes to carry out the rest of his agenda. He needs to BUILD THE DAMN WALL, more than anything else. His mission is not complete. Hell, he has really only gotten started at this point.
But the God-Emperor is just one man - mighty and brilliant though he is. He cannot crush the heretics and drive out the xenos without his loyal legions.
That is where you come in. Get out there. Vote. And help the God-Emperor WIN as he has never won before.
Lord, once more the fate of this greatest of all nations is in Your mighty hands. Two years ago You showed us a sign of Your power and Your will, and for that we are most grateful. You showed us that You still believe in us, that You have not abandoned us, and that You have a plan and a purpose for us.
DEUS VULT, brothers.
E'en now their vanguard gathers,
E'en now we face the fray--
As Thou didst help our fathers,
Help Thou our host to-day!
Fulfilled of signs and wonders,
In life, in death made clear--
Jehovah of the Thunders,
Lord God of Battles, hear!
