An American FutureVanity | October 8, 2016 | William FlaxPosted on 10/8/2016, 1:49:52 PM by OhioanThe political “news” today is dominated by mass media glee at being able to publish an eleven year old recording of some less than couth, less than refined–yet wholly private–discussions of sexual themes by the Conservative Republican candidate for President, Donald Trump.
While Donald’s comments, little more than trivial male banter, do not rise to the actual sexual self- indulgent history of Democratic Presidents Kennedy, Johnson or Clinton; neither that fact, nor Donald Trump’s apology, nor even the grotesque moral flaws of Hillary Clinton, should be our principal focus.This election is not about who is the nicest–with all his flaws & virtues, it is obviously Donald Trump;–nor, certainly is it about who can be the most sanctimonious; nor who is the most hypocritical–clearly Mrs. Clifton;–but all such “likeability issues,” are mere trivia compared to whether or not America survives in any recognizable form.Although a registered Republican, I have in the past week received three separate, large, expensively produced, flyers attacking Donald Trump as being a threat to women, from the Ohio Democratic Party. They deal not with any actual issue, but purely with personality. It has been obvious for some, that that this was going to be the principal tactic of both the mainstream media and the Hillary Clinton campaign. We cannot ignore it, but we can counter it effectively with a disciplined approach.We can learn a lot, frankly, from the foe on this; but without rolling in the gutter with them.
Note how they always seek to make the campaign about personality, rather than the crucial issues that go to whether or not we have an American Future–a future true to the promises of the American foundation;–a future where we secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves & our posterity. When a Conservative tries to question the open border, or the betrayal of those in law enforcement by the Administration; or the betrayal of veterans; or the betrayal of American communities by those putting global ventures rather than Americans first, or the betrayal of children, by the Federal takeover of local education, etc.; the Leftist advocate always pivots to the personal attack. And all too often, it works–at least to the extent of taking the sting out of our argument.
We need to learn how to reverse the process; how to immediately pivot back to our issues–the real issues that concern an American future–not their issues.We are not fighting for a “politically correct” society, where people are never allowed to sound uncouth, never allowed to express critical thoughts.
We are fighting for the continuation of what they laid down their very lives for in the Revolution; fighting for individual dignity, individuals able to make the vital decisions in their lives, without the leave of global minded rulers.
When some sanctimonious jerk starts attacking Donald Trump for being sometimes rough in his forms of expression; immediately pivot, demand that they explain how in their regimented, over regulated future, we protect the individual American from being drowned in a form of international collectivism that has all the aspects of Communist or Nazi thought control, simply more euphemistically explained. Hillary Clinton, like the great totalitarian movements, has been quite outspoken that she believes that traditional individual rights and aspirations must yield to group interests.
When we are accused of being bigoted for wanting to control our borders, never apologize; rather pivot to the reality, that it is insane to allow your lands to be flooded by people you have not screened; people who will take the jobs of American youth, people who do not share our values–and the anti-American riots in California and elsewhere would be very difficult to explain if one believes that those flooding in, do share our traditional values.
As for well settled people of Hispanic origins, who share our values; Donald Trump has already demonstrated that many of them are fully with us–their patriotism, being actually insulted by the Left, is not an argument for allowing a vastly different class of migrants to undermine our societies.The point is that one should pivot to the attack; never get bogged down answering the lies of the Left. Always remember that America & an American Future are the issues.
It is not a bad idea, if you are reasonably articulate, to also add a few words about what patriotism & loyalty mean to you; about honoring a proud & noble heritage. We have the high ground!
