Conservative America is full of good people who play by the rules, hope for the best, pray for their enemies, and want the best for everyone and the country. They’re an optimistic bunch who just wants to live and let live. They don’t want or need politics to bleed into every inch of their life and would rather just enjoy their borrowed time on earth.

It’s a simplistic summary, but it also explains why they’re the last to know that we are at war, whether we want to be or not.

Conservatives, when provoked, are quick to tell anyone who will listen how they’ll be the first to step up and defend freedom. Pretty soon, we’re going to find out how true that is, because America is under assault, and has been for years.

It’s hard to know exactly who the enemy is, but it’s some combination of China, George Soros, monopoly tech companies, the Washington establishment, the media, and the Democrat Party.

Whether or not you believe in conspiracies only determines how coordinated and organized the attack is. But it’s not a conspiracy to correctly recognize that they’re all working toward the same goal, whether they’re working together or not.

The ultimate goal is their power over all of us. It always has been. One of the weaknesses of conservatism is that they don’t want to rule others. They want everyone to make their own decisions and live their own lives – so long as it doesn’t infringe on the rights of another. As a result, conservatives are always for decentralization of everything.

Democrats, on the other hand, are driven primarily by their need for control and power. They believe they are smarter and better than everyone else and therefore should be ruling others. The more charitable Democrats will add “for their own good,” to the end of that thought. But the end result is the same.

When the Democrats’ power finally takes hold, it is going to result in very real censorship. They are going to make it as difficult as possible for conservatives to get or share real news. They’re going to control the information we receive and the information we share. And they will do their best to expel any dissent.

America is at a severe disadvantage because it’s a country full of people who believe “it could never happen here.” People have seen communism, Stalin, Hitler, and Hugo Chavez, and still believe that society has moved beyond that. We’re too kind. We’re not brutal like that.

Meanwhile, it’s already here. Our morals, standards, and grace are gone. Replaced by thoughtless, merciless, cold people who’ve never been taught right from wrong. As we all hide behind our phones, we don’t even interact with one another anymore, which makes it so much easier to be cruel to each other. Because we’re not doing it in person. We all hide behind the screen. And it’s made us capable of things we would have never thought possible.

The war is here. Many people are going to talk about winning the next election, but it’s not going to happen. Once stolen, why would they stop?

The Democrats have had a head start on this war, and they’ve never had to fire a shot. I’ve been trying to think of ways we beat this without having to fire a shot of our own. I pray we can find one.

But right now, defending our freedoms, our liberties, our Constitution, and our way of life looks like it’s going to take force. The only way a civil war is not imminent is if we break up and there’s secession.

As they say, the first step in solving a problem is admitting we have one. Well, we have a big one. We are at war, and America won’t win it until it realizes it’s in one. I pray it’s not too late.
