    I always think of this when people say that we still have the 2A.

    The OP totally nails it.
    Years of liberal brainwashing has taken its toll.

    In a lot of places, only the bad guys and government has guns. No one is going to bring armed confrontation to the US while we have open borders and unchecked corruption speeding our decline.

    I read through this entire thread and I'm appalled at the crap that I read! Whipped? Don't let those words leave your lips! As long as your heart is still beating, you're not whipped!

    If the SHTF, stay far away from me. I'll be needing the room to stack the results of a gigantic can of WHUPA$$!

    It won't matter if we are still the "dominant financial and military power" if our neighborhoods resemble Iraq/Pakistan/Somalia.


    Being a "net exporter of petroleum products" and having a strong military to fight Middle East Forever Wars isn't going to matter, when your hometown resembles Ciudad Juarez or lslamabad or London.


    What???

    We are being invaded on a daily basis, and have been since at least 1965.

    Unfortunately, I believe your prediction is accurate.

    I’m not quite ready to hoist the white flag. Many events, most now unforeseen, will determine our future.

    Most of the super-rich (Soros, Zuckerberg, Bloomberg, Dorsey, Koch, Steyer, Bezos, Slim, etc etc etc) are the ones outsourcing American jobs, importing a replacement Democrat voting population, pushing moral degeneracy such as transgenderism for children, censoring conservatives, and funding organizations like Everytown USA and MoveOn that are working to take away your rights.


    But by all means, focus your anger on raging against people that receive $200 per month in food stamps, if that makes you happy.


    Zuckerberg, Soros and the other billionaires will be happy that you are distracted, while they continue to destroy this country.

    Nobody is quitting.

    People are just being realistic about the likely future of this country.

    Do you really think liberty will survive when this country resembles Mexico/Sudan/Iraq/Pakistan?

    I doubt Abdul and Muhammad care about Constitutional freedoms.

    I only read page 1 and 4......and, feel a bit disappointed in all the pessimism I see here.

    I am not ready to submit to thinking the founding principles of our country are, or will be taken from us. I'll agree wholeheartedly that the left is trying to do just that, though......

    There is one thing that will help the cause of liberty and freedoms.......and, that is having an honest vote. If we get the Senate, House, and Presidency in 2020......that's a very real possibility.

    We need more than just voter ID......we need to make voting easy, and eliminate the fraud. With the presence of fingerprint and eye identification, there is no reason to not make it so voting can be done in your own home, and only once, by only one eligible voter.

    We sit idly by shaking our fists while the Globalist Leftists are systematically destroying our country. To say they are indoctrinating our children isn't strong enough, they are poisoning their minds in the education system, media and entertainment industry.

    They are infiltrating government and openly declaring that we are the bad guys, the enemy. They are passing laws to take away our rights and freedoms. If you don't see that this is happening, and getting worse exponentially, you aren't paying attention or you are sheltered from reality.

    I don't know what to do about it. People say use the ballot box, but as you all see, they don't respect that. They cheat in elections, (if you ain't cheatin' you ain't tryin") and they are trying their damnedest to remove the duly elected president who we voted into office. None of us want it to come to civil war, neighbor against neighbor, but what do we do?

    “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
    ― Edmund Burke

    They have been at war with us for a long time now and they are kicking our ass in the long game. We don't even recognize that the game is being played in earnest.

    All of this is true, BB.......

    I'll add that conservative thought is being censored in public communication......and as a result of that, there are many conservative minded people who are not exposed to it. They are completely absorbed in enjoying their freedoms, and non-political......that when they are told that these things are going on, it sounds like conspiracy theories to them. These are potential voters.......

    Trump has been a nice breather, and a second term will buy us a few more years. But yes, the ideological war is over. Candidates who support freedom will never again win the popular vote, and electoral college victories will become rarer and rarer.

    See my thread on how we can’t fix this at the ballot box anymore.

    Allowing liberals to control the media and education was our fatal mistake.

    Yep. We’ve had a pretty good run, but it’s coming to an end. Within the next 30 - 40 years. I used to think 50, but the rate of decline is accelerating.

    Imagine, if you will, what the Democrats will do when they regain control of both houses of Congress and the presidency, probably in 2024.

    The first thing they will throw out is the Senate filibuster, to make sure there are no legislative roadblocks to their insanity.

    Next they will take a run at packing the Supreme Court with leftist, activist judges.

    ^^^ What he said.

    Another issue is that people who think like us are getting older, and will die off. The percentage of younger folks who are conservatives is getting smaller and smaller every year. I work with lots of young people - very few of them are conservative.

    I think 30 or 40 years is very optimistic. I think 10 - 20 years is more realistic.

    I can't see any reason to disagree with that. We are just delaying. But since we won't live forever, delaying has value too.

    The good news is that in 100 years we will have plenty of conservatives, after a few decades of suffering under socialism/communism.
