There are a number of things which have recently happened which make me believe that the power and authority of the US government has reached its peak and can advance no further without resorting to drastic authoritarian measures, up to and including blatant, brutal martial law. (Which we may get and which will NOT help the cause of the would-be controllers and may hasten their demise.) Coincident with this is the understanding that the radical, progressive left has also reached its zenith and is in danger of becoming irrelevant. The mood has shifted. The pendulum has reached its leftward extreme in socio-political life and is now swinging back the other way.
Think about it.
- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis vs. Walt Disney Corporation. Five years ago, Disney would have scored an easy win. Today, they have lost their most-favored status, a truck load of financial worth due to stock devaluations, and the loss of many, many customers who are (and will continue) to boycott the company because of a polarizing stance which directly opposed the wishes and wills of a huge number of common, everyday people. People who only want what is best for themselves AND their progeny. Meanwhile, DeSantis is riding the wave of new-found popularity, which might actually carry him into the White House. We shall see.
- Roe v. Wade. A profound shift of direction from the Federal government toward the individual states. Unless Congress and Joe Biden can summon up what it takes to codify abortion on demand into law, this so-called “constitutional right” is dead at the federal level. From here on out, the states will have the say-so on this issue.
- The slapping down of a New York State gun control law in favor of the individual right to carry without having to justify a need for the permission. Despite the Congress and Biden, gun-control in this country is a mirage and, as the situation on the ground deteriorates, will become even harder to put into effect.
- The recall of San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin in a massively, lopsided vote. Turns out that the “woke” population of the city actually woke up and decided they needed a change of direction–that is, at least as far as criminal prosecutions and homelessness were concerned.
This list is far from comprehensive and maybe I am reading too much into it, but coupled with the Covid fraud, the inglorious departure from Afghanistan, the debacle unfolding in Ukraine, skyrocketing food and fuel prices, rapidly upward-adjusting inflation, and many more items, it is not hard to imagine that average Americans have had enough from their government.
