2020 was a hard year for Trump supporters. In addition to having been called the worst names imaginable by leftists for four years running, the rent-seeking left came for our jobs by over-inflating the effects of a virus that is more closely related to the common cold than it is to the flu.
We have watched as some of the Bible’s most terrifying prophecies appear to be on the verge of coming true — namely that those who do not receive a new and unproven vaccination, special tracking software, and/or an RFID chip under the skin will not be able to buy or sell in the marketplace. Even highly respected atheist thinkers are noticing the similarity between the referenced portion of the Book of Revelation and current events.
But of course, the hardest blow for Trump supporters has been having to watch the election being stolen right in front of our eyes while the MSM turns its head, as the courts refused to look at the evidence, and as Republicans failed to act.
To understand the meaning of Donald Trump and what his presidency represented, you only need to understand that the sound of his voice is algorithmically banned from Facebook as his tweets are banned from Twitter. The establishment doesn’t just fear Trump, it fears the type of thinking that anyone who likes Trump must have. They fear anyone who wants freedom, and who is skeptical of the government’s motivations. CNN anchors have even gone so far as to smear “Trumpism,” because it’s not about a man — it’s about a refusal to bow to those who believe they are our masters.
But to quote Yoda, “There is another,” and that other just might be Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. He has sparked our interest by simply refusing to agree to the terms that leftist reporters would impose on him. He calls them on their nonsense with an alacrity that makes Trump look tired. He does not let them steer the conversation. He calls out their motivations and he shuts them down when they show themselves to be lying, ignorant, or both.
DeSantis led the way in opening up his state despite the pandemic-related hand wringing of the Left. Texas soon followed suit. As a result of this, we now have real numbers that show mask mandates and lockdowns don’t work. Florida and Texas have shown us that the tyranny people are suffering in New York, California, and elsewhere is not helping. DeSantis was the forerunner in this, and history will remember him in 2024.
There has been speculation for some time not that he may be gearing up for a presidential run, and without Coronavirus mandates to protect them — it’s hard to imagine how the Left could manage to steal the White House a second time.
It must be remembered that Trump is likely to have fashioned his brand after certain social movements that defeated their leftist opposition in 2014 and 2015. They did it by refusing to apologize when they had done nothing wrong, and for calling out bad-faith actors where they found them.
Trump was the first to wield this new political lightning bolt, and DeSantis may have what it takes to master it.
