I’ve been writing for years about America, about the American Spirit and the American Dream. It was all for nothing, all about something that simply no longer exists. I was delusional, in denial, stooopid. America is no longer the America of my youth, of my dreams, of my spirit. The American people have re-elected 0, and that tells me all I need to know about the country I’ve always loved and been proud of, about my fellow countrymen and women who rejected all that is good and decent and admirable about our great country and embrace all that is bad and failed and shameful about her and her century-long flirtation with communism.
The American people have spoken, and it’s a sad sad day for our endangered Republic.
As for me and this blog . . . I’m done. This blog is done, at least as a political blog. Because I love to write, I may come back at some time to write about whatever interests me, but it won’t be politics. I’ll stay a constitutional conservative (it’s who I am), and I’ll still vote, of course, still resist in the culture war and stay informed, but I see no point at all in torturing myself for four more years, of agonizing over 0 and his shameful anti- and unAmerican policies when, apparently, he’s just what the American people want. Well, they have him. We have him.
Okay, maybe “And done” isn’t quite correct. Both my conservative blogger friends here and a very special one over at Hack’s place (*waves at Sol, the great mind behind Wisdom of Soloman*) have reminded me that . . . well, they’ve reminded me of who I am and what I care about. I will continue to blog, perhaps not as focused on politics (I need to keep some semblance of sanity, and four more years of 0 are guaranteed to deprive me of that if I let them), but I will be here, and yes, I’ll definitely engage in the political arena when it seems useful and wise (or, hey, when I feel like it! Heh).
