“I have counselled but one policy to the South; yield not one inch, but meet the question here and elsewhere with firm, uncompromising, and unflinching resistance.”
“The spirit which yields one position will yield another, until at length, self-respect and self-confidence is gone, and a conscious degradation prepares the people to be the victims of corrupt and traitorous demagogues.”
“The Union must be dissolved under its present course of administration. It requires no conspiracy to destroy – no exertion on our part to drag it to its dissolution. It goes down with the inevitable weight of its own gravitation, into that dark abyss of anarchy and ruin, where all tyrannies have fallen.”

#SCOTUS rules against Trump administration in challenge to decision to end #DACA program, which allowed noncitizens brought to this country illegally as children to apply for protection from deportation, holding decision was arbitrary and capricious— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 18, 2020
These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives. We need more Justices or we will lose our 2nd. Amendment & everything else. Vote Trump 2020!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 18, 2020
Do you get the impression that the Supreme Court doesn’t like me?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 18, 2020
One of the predictable consequences of this latest spate of horrendous SCOTUS decisions, on a court with 5 Republican appointees, is that voting GOP in the vain hope that they will appoint justices who will protect your rights, will rightly be seen as an insufficient rationale.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) June 18, 2020
What is the point of voting in American elections?
Barack Obama used a pen and a phone to pass the DREAM Act. The Supreme Court just agreed with him. Democrats tried and failed to pass the Equality Act. They just got that too thanks to the Supreme Court because the conservatives on it were afraid of ruling against the mob.
As for the people burning down police stations, looting businesses and tearing down monuments, they didn’t get any of that by voting for it. They tried to elect Bernie Sanders twice and failed miserably. These people are being lionized by the media as heroes and showered with over a billion dollars by Corporate America for engaging in violence against innocent people.
If you obeyed the law and voted for conservative politicians for decades to get the policies you wanted, then the last three weeks have shown that you were a fool. If you unilaterally upheld liberal norms while the other side broke those liberal norms, you have also been shown to be a fool.
Just to be crystal clear: I am not endorsing violence, ritual shaming, intimidation or mob rule, which are not the ways of our people, but those are the tactics which are getting results, not voting. I have watched the collapse of the liberal mainstream consensus on television and on the internet from home. I have believed it was destined to collapse for 20 years now and now it has happened.
If you are anachronistic, un-American and hateful enough to stay at home, obey the law and vote in elections while violent leftwing mobs burn down your country to get what they want, well, you are being denounced and discarded here. You are an obstacle to vitally important progress. Unfortunately, the people who share these liberal values haven’t been elected yet because of your opposition.
Make of that what you will.
