It’s Hard To Be Thankful (But We Should Be)

It’s Thanksgiving, a time when we look at why we should be thankful. That’s harder to do this year. The election has been stolen through mathematically impossible votes found in the dead of night; our government will soon be run by people who hate this nation and treat its citizens like serfs; Democrat governors and mayors throughout the country are hurting us all in the name of saving us. Even Thanksgiving itself, according to Democrat dictators, is canceled — even as they make secret plans to meet with their own family members and to gather in whatever quantities they wish.

It’s difficult to be thankful when you realize your government is a farce, your nation is a banana republic run by tyrants, and that you are part of a minority of citizens in the United States: People who still care about the Constitution. Still, it’s helpful to remember, at times like this, that it has looked this bleak before.

We survived eight years of Bill Clinton. We survived eight years of Barack Hussein Obama. I have lived in New York all my life, which means I have suffered through Hillary Clinton as my carpetbagging senator, Andrew “Il Duce” Cuomo as my contemptible governor (and his father, scumbag Mario Cuomo before him), and a state whose Republican majority suffers at the hands of New York City’s population density in every election.

I have, in other words, lived behind enemy lines all my life. That means that as the rest of the nation once more goes behind the donkey curtain of stupidity and self-destruction, they’re merely joining the party we’ve been having here in New York for years. I don’t wish that on anyone, especially given the dubious “victory” Biden has “won.” But it doesn’t look like we’re going to be able to overturn this fraud (nor was it ever likely we could). It falls to us, then, to deal with what is, to accept reality and cope with it. Along those lines, we must look at the things for which we can be thankful.

What are those things? Well, to start, the margin by which the Democrat thieves hold power is thinner than ever before. They may well succeed in seizing the Senate through their perfidy, but it’s very likely Republicans will see gains in two years after Biden (and then Harris) completely botch our government. To say that we’re in for a roller coaster ride of incompetence, failure, and scandal is an understatement.  I’m not thrilled about reentering recession the way we did during the doldrums of Obama’s economy… but at least Republicans can, for a change, be the ones to criticize.

For four years we have endured constant, unfair, libelous criticism at the hands of dishonest Democrats. That’s not going to change, nor will Trump have much peace to look forward to after his time in office. The Democrats will likely hound him as no former president has ever been pursued. Still, even though they’ll invoke his name constantly to explain away their failures, blaming him for anything and everything like a modern-day Goldstein, it will be the Democrats in the driver’s seat for at least two years. That means it’s our turn to criticize them. Every bump in the road, every minor accident, every major collision will fall squarely on their hunched shoulders.

This matters, because for four years the Democrats have done nothing but whine and complain. Now we’ll get to see the mess they make of things once they have their way… and while that’s going to hurt our country (there is no way it couldn’t), only that damage will convince swing voters to move again to the right. Only the destruction wrought by Democrats will secure Republican power again… if we can stop them from so distorting and damaging the system that a Democrat super-majority is ensured in perpetuity.

These don’t really sound like things to be thankful for, I know. But we, as Republicans, are nothing if not fighters. There is something about knowing a fight lies before us, something about realizing that our enemies will be completely unmasked in their abuse of power, that is invigorating. At least now we don’t have to wonder what schemes they’re hatching. Those schemes will be on full display, transparent to the world on a national stage. I am thankful for this opportunity to regroup our side and move forward with clear purpose.

Without Trump to personify all they hate, Democrats will be forced to admit that Trump was never the problem. Their hatred has always been for us, for Republicans, as people. I’m thankful for that, too, because I prefer an open fight to the intrigue and petty bickering that is the entrenched bureaucratic state.

Today, on Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for America. I’m thankful for its promise. And I’m thankful for the fact that, while I hate what Democrats are doing to this nation, I am not alone. You share my love for this country and my hope for what can be. I am thankful for that, and for you. As we head into the holidays and then to 2021, Red As Hell will be here to fight with you.

Thank you.
