Robert Heinlein got this one right:
“Pessimist by policy, optimist by temperament – it is possible to be both.”
Close to right, anyway: Actually the idea is not to be exclusively a pessimist by policy, but to include all scenarios. We need to be prepared for good scenarios so if they happen we can press our advantage and rapidly end this. We need to prepare for bad scenarios so we can win even if a part of the game moves adversely for us. Which some parts will, of course.
We can’t just assume good scenarios. What prompted this post: Righties who are assuming that the courts, especially the Supreme Court, are going to bail us out. The reasons for this assumption seem to be that we have fact, law, and the Constitution on our side. But when did any of those things ever matter to a leftist judge? Anyone who assumes the courts are going to issue the correct, lawful, and just ruling is huffing paint fumes. Based on the courts’ behavior for the last several decades, this assumption is not within a parsec of realistic.
[Neurotoxin’s patented Supreme Court analysis: Roberts, Kagan, Sotomayor, Breyer: Leftist. Alito, Thomas: Rightist. Gorsuch: Has cucked at least once so there’s precedent for him cucking. Kavanaugh: Has cucked at least once so there’s precedent for him cucking. Barrett: Unknown, but is a white woman who virtue signaled hard by adopting two black children. Coldly, objectively: She’s at least as likely to side with the enemy as with us.
If the Supreme Court rules against Trump, this will get violent. Of course, it’s going to get violent in any case. We all knew that was going to happen sooner or later, because the left never gives up. They can’t; not having total power over other human beings is sheer torture to them. So there never was any question about whether things would eventually get bloody in the US; the only question was whether it would happen in our lifetimes. Well, it had to happen in someone’s lifetime. Turns out it’s us. There’s no doubt about that now. If we “lose” in the courts— that is, if the courts continue their habit of blatantly ignoring fact and law to get a leftist result— we will either fight it immediately while Our Guy is President or fight it from a worse position with the left in total power. If we manage to win in the courts, the left will move to the blatant violence part of its plan: Bombing the White House, rioting in the streets, etc. (I’m not sure what the rioting is supposed to accomplish, but they obviously love it.)]
The courts might bail us out, and if they do, great. But we need a plan for the more-likely case that they don’t. There are some good signs here, by the way: (1) Does it look like the Right intends to just roll over? Not from what I’m seeing. And ninety percent of Trump voters think mail-in ballots were manipulated to help Biden. (2) Does it look like the left has a plan in case we don’t just roll over? Well, they must; they’re not novices at violent revolution. But it’s also plain from the “mainstream” media coverage that they are really trying to avoid that scenario. My local paper (my woman subscribes to one for some reason) has “Biden wins” coverage to an extent that’s almost hilarious. Last week they ran a ton of stories with headlines like “Biden Wins” and “How Biden Won” and “What Biden’s Victory Means for (Farmers, Your Retirement Portfolio, whatever)” and “Local Voters React to Biden’s Win” and “Biden’s Task After His Win: Healing a Divided Nation.” Etc. Also the inevitable: “Trump Still Refuses to Concede.” Given the intensity of their attempt to win through bluff, it’s obvious that they really don’t want to have to move to the next part of their Revolution Decision Tree. The fact that that scares them is a good sign for us.
Stiffen your spine, when it needs it, by reminding yourself that the left wants to kill us all if they win.
If you’re young and you don’t believe this, because you attended schools controlled by leftists, find a good history of Communism in the twentieth century. A good history means, among other things, one not written by a communist or communist sympathizer. The surest signal that communists have taken over a country is that large-scale slaughter has begun. They always kill people by the millions, the only exceptions being when a country is so small (e.g. Cuba) that they have to settle for killing people in smaller numbers. Not only can it happen here, they’re planning to make it happen here. On Twitter, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez encouraged leftists to make lists of Trump supporters for “accountability” after they acquire more power.
Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose. If enough people on the right, including especially President Trump, realize they intend to kill us all, it’s a mammoth strategic advantage for us: It means there’s no risk we won’t take. This gives us the freedom to be very bold in going on the offense.
I have no idea what the state delegations in Republican states that frauded up a Biden win will do. They’ll send Trump electors to the Electoral College if they understand that a leftist victory means eventual murder of them and their families. Do they understand that? In enough states? It doesn’t have to be all of the fraud states, just two or three key states.
(The latest news from Michigan on this front is not good: It seems that Michigan Republicans’ plan is to do nothing and hope that leftists won’t act like leftists this time. On Darwinian grounds those Republicans deserve what the left is eventually going to do to them, but the problem is that their cowardice and stupidity are putting the rest of us in danger too.)
If it goes to the House of Representatives it’s decided, not by a vote of the individual House members, but by a vote of their state delegations, each acting as a single voter. So, 50 states, 50 votes. Currently the House delegation split is 26 Republican, 24 Democrat or Democrat-aligned. That means we can’t rely on the House: the left only needs to find one small-population Republican state with a small number of House members, and get a majority of them to cuck. That makes it 25-25 in the House, so I imagine the outcome would be decided by… the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Don’t worry, though, they’ll never get a single Republican to cuck, right? Establishment Republicans never cuck!
(Sarc off.) You see the problem? It’s not that we can’t win; it’s that we can’t assume we’ll win in the courts or the House. And the Michigan example tells us we can’t rely on the state legislatures. If we don’t win in at least one of those three key points— all of which are uncertain— this goes to either (1) we surrender (which means we are murdered) or (2) bullets flying in both directions. In that scenario we win based on sheer numbers, I think. But the more prepared we are, the better.
