I remember when I was young and naive.
Back then, the idea that a senile old man, who even forgets the existence of the administration he was part of, would be a credible presidential candidate would have been laughable. That same candidate adopting a platform plank of strip mining and polluting the planet to appeal to environmentalists would have been a real WTF moment.
But that was then and this is now. And if you believe polls, he’s going to win.
Last year, I mildly took author Sarah Hoyt to task for supporting Donald Trump’s candidacy. He is no friend to freedom. But that was then. Since then, we have Democrat candidate who wants to defund the police while depriving honest, law-abiding gun owners of the most effective tools of self-defense. Even as criminals are being released en masse — probably with gift cards — over a common cold virus.
Meanwhile, mayors encourage rioting and looting, or demand federal law enforcement stop enforcing the law. Back then, it would have seemed insane. Now, it’s real. And just as insane. But it’s real. And yes, those mayors also want the honest people disarmed. For the rioters’ convenience.
The nation is falling apart far faster than I would have believed possible just last year, and I was pessimistic then. I owe Sarah an apology.
I could hold my nose and cast a Trump ballot, but while I don’t believe the election polling, I fear the Democrats have a lock on sufficient election fraud, or they will if we go to mail-in voting nationally.
If you haven’t been paying attention, Biden’s “gun violence” plan says . . .
This will give individuals who now possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act.
There is a third option, and you’d better be ready to exercise it.
