    Folks,

    I get it. We are all reeling from the events that have happened since the election in general, and with the events of this week specifically.

    There were those that thought that the election was going to go differently in November. There were those that thought that something was going to come out of the court challenges around the fraud allegations. There were those that hoped for a different outcome with the Georgia do-over election as a last ditch hold on the Democrats taking complete control.

    None of those things came to pass.

    This week, a protest was held in DC and while emotions were running high, there was no presumption that it would be anything other than those kinds of protests/marches that have gone before, i.e. being peaceful.

    That didn't happen either and shit went down.

    As a result of both the outcomes of the elections, and now following the events that occurred on Wednesday, we are seeing the most overt and Draconian attack on freedom of thought and expression to occur in any of our lifetimes.

    Those that are wielding power right now are going to wield it like a club, a whip and a knife. They want to beat us into submission, and carve us from society.

    The purges that are occurring right now are following the script of every leftist overthrow of a government since time began.

    Right now we are in the purge of thought phase. They are seeking to compartmentalize us into smaller and smaller pens where we can eventually be rounded up later; either metaphorically or literally. That remains to be seen which it will be.

    But here's the point.

    Your angst, concern, fear, anger, outrage are being channelled in the wrong way. You're spending time arguing and finger pointing at people here who are the ones that you need to stand with when the time comes.

    We are not alone in this. We must stand together.

    MDS is right now on the front lines of the 1st and 2nd amendment fight for freedom in this country.

    That is not hyperbole. Our voices are being silenced on legacy media and new media across this entire country and outlets like MDS stand as the last outposts of free thought for those that cherish our Constitution and individual liberty.

    You need to decide now where you stand. Are you ready to stand together, or are you going to let their plan to divide us succeed?

    This community has always been, and needs to continue to be, the place that brings patriots together centered around the basic principles of freedom.

    What's done is done. We can't do anything about November 3 or January 6. It's past.

    We need to move forward and stand together, or we will surely fall separately.

    Put your grief and despair aside now. It's time to sack up and gird yourself for what is to come as they seek to destroy your rights.

    I couldn't agree more. I've actually unsubscribed from a couple of threads that are getting acrimonious with a couple of folks clearly trolling - I can't believe they are members of this community because they seem to be parroting the exact same things the leftists and progressives are.

    I'll never believe for a second that this election was legit, but it is what it is, and come the 20th, we're going to be dealing with an administration that is going to be in high gear towards pushing the country towards democratic socialism, which IMO is a mistake.

    I'm here, sacking up with everyone else and I agree - now more than ever we need to come together as a community.

    Good post Norton.

    ‘When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.' ~ Edmund Burke, 1770

    This quote is often rephrased (and misquoted) into: "The surest way for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing."

    WELL, evil is upon us. I agree with Norton, 100%

    As a young man part of a dying generation of responsible, patriotic, family centric firearms owners, I stand with you when called to the fight in whatever capacity.
     
    Hear, hear, Captain!!

    Strong voices, facts, and resolve are needed.

    The disdain has already begun spreading. I wore my Trump hat today for the first time since Wednesday, and instead of the people engaging and hopeful, there were sidelong glances and sneers. Nothing was said, but it was still loud.

    It'll be a long and ugly road, I think. But, Americanism isn't about hate and anger.

    We'll make it.

    W.....T.... Lol I'm one of the most rabid Trump supporters and I'm resigned it's over. Whatever life goes on. I'm not really seeing people continue to argue that much though what threads?

    Like I told people who had a cow 4 years ago, don’t let your life revolve any one administration. We do what we can, with what we got.

    Well said, and this is why as a long time member but low count poster I recently showed back up here to check in, worried about what was on the horizon and needing to find those that believe in the Constitution, the 2A, and Freedom.

    I have a family, and want their future to be free.
