Conservatives benefit from the left’s ignorance of human nature. Lefties get it wrong because their emotions crowd out good sense, and because they preach hopey-changey promises that won’t work in real life. For several hundred years, leftists imagined they could create a state that is different from what reality and human nature will allow. But they couldn’t. Look at Cuba, Venezuela and Cambodia; consider the wrecked ship of Russia and its demise, run onto the rocks after the communist Bolsheviks took over.
Now, Americans face the real prospect in November of being run by a pack of committed anti-capitalist socialists who are two steps away from morphing into communism. Lenin, the founder of Russian communism, said “The goal of socialism is communism.” Socialists will deny it, but they lie with no remorse; for them, lying and fraud are justified-means-to-an-end. Lying is both a requirement and a characteristic of a Marxist. Lenin again: “A lie told often enough becomes the truth”.
Who stands to confront the Biden-led socialists trying to take over our country? A good case can be made that America’s “Silent Majority” is the major hope to reclaim the real America. If they do not flock to the polls in record numbers in November, America heads down the drain.
Who is the Silent Majority? How are they identified?
For starters, they value tradition and principles. They want to keep what works, because winners know you don’t change a winning game. They practice personal responsibility and want it taught to their children. They are characterized by words like disciplined, determined, will power, and hard-working. The Silent Majority distrusts government, and are shocked by very little because they understand human nature and what humans are capable of. They are prepared to make self-sacrifices. These are the folks who fight for what’s right, including protecting people in other nations from totalitarian despots like Castro, Mussolini, Hitler, Hirohito and Pol Pot. The Silent Majority will never join the “woke mob”, the defund-the-police craze, and the cancel culture. They refuse to believe that a country which twice elected a black president is “profoundly racist”. The silent, ignored majority, bedrock Americans, have no truck with attacks on our police, burning down our cities, and tearing down our monuments.
The silent majority doesn’t squawk all the time about being victims, and they laugh at the concepts of “microagressions” and “cry closets”.
These are the people, mocked or ignored by the media, and undercounted by the polls because they keep their opinions private, who can stop the march of the socialists and who can elect people with the courage to crush rampaging mobs. Two-thirds of Americans polled state they “have political views they’re afraid to share,” says the Cato Institute. Many of these voters refuse to engage with the pollsters from fake news, just like in 2016.
Because of the ongoing riots, antifa black-shirts, and other militant groups, and the very real threat the mobs will extend violent activities to the suburbs, fear is growing. And the Democrats are becoming more and more associated with what has come to be called the Biden-riot mobs. Four days of the Democratic National Convention passed by, with dozens of speakers, and no one bothered to rebuke the destructive mobs and the violence in the Democrat-led cities. And it’s not only violence that frightens suburbanites and productive citizens, but also Democratic incompetence in economic matters. All of this has promoted growth in the silent majority, but we don’t know how numerous they will be until the voting starts.
Hopefully, come November, voters will emerge who were just patiently biding their time and keeping their own counsel. They will only put up with so much before they come out of their silence swinging. When they enter the voting booth, legions of Americans will prove they no longer intend to be silent. Their voices will be heard loud and clear.
