Something radical happened within me tonight.
I went into an election watching event with an idea that I knew my country well.
I left with the undeniable horror that I had not known my country at all.
This is not the country I grew up in.
It is time (as it always is) to draw very near to God. We are in uncharted water.
I am in exactly the same place as you are. The country that
I knew and cherished as a child and young adult is gone. I loathe the Federal Government. I only believe in Texas now.
I will stop referring to myself as an American. Now I
am just a Texan.
As you said we are in uncharted water. What happens now is
anybody’s guess, but the chances of meltdown into social
chaos just went up dramatically.
The Constitution is meaningless now.
I remember the Bible speaking of a “man of lawlessness” who would appear in the end times.
I need to go back and see what that is about.
I've been in that zone since I realized we'd lost tonight. As much as I love my country, I love my wife and kids more. I feel that I must, by necessity, pull back my focus to a more basic kind of politics.
It's time to man the barricades and fight for the last bit of ground we really hold.
