Courage means fighting and inevitable scars, but fight we must.
Strong, true and good words. Thank you. Not an American, but his mother was:
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may be even a worse fate, you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
Another excellent article. After reading, this quote came to mind:
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
– Marcus Tullius Cicero
Thank you for writing what many think, feel and know…
Outstanding article Jenna. Spot on!
I was thinking about that Patton speech after the elections in November. Whether we win this fight or lose it is beyond us individually, but, working at the Center, when your kids ask what you did you won’t have to say “Well, I shovelled **** in Louisiana”
Very clear and evocative explanation of the trouble that we are in, and some of its causes. These are the problems that right-thinking people need to understand and find way to solve.
Yes, we are in a war, and and our society, and what remains of our freedom, are at stake.

They won’t let a strong leader in, period. The only ones that we’ve seen recently were Trump, and now Bobby Kennedy, Jr. putting in for the 2024 run (though Democrat). It feels like a hopeless situation, I agree we must fight, but I think it will have to be through grassroots organizations. The woke inclusivity is everywhere, though the younger generations are asleep and being led astray while thinking they are hip, and finally belong. They do not see the rot, and they are becoming rotten. That is why I agree we must stand up straight, look them in the eye and continue to fight the good fight our forefathers before us had to. Because it’s for Liberty, God, and Justice for all.
BTW our local churches are filled with members, but like you say it’s become a pop culture club of “what would Jesus do” goers.
Thank you, Jenna.
Here's to hoping the battle comes soon!
I found this post to be encouraging!!!
Great article, Jenna.
Inspiring! Thank you!
Yes. Fight we must. No politician will fight for us, not even Trump. He wants to draw a red line that will get misinterpreted and give them a chance to take our guns. Don't give 'em up. Don't vote for anyone who steps up. YOU are the owner of you... a Sovereign. Take yourself back. Take your family back, take your barrio, town and state back... put gold, silver or your good name on the barrel head. We need to start over.
If you can't close your borders, close your town... then defend it. Flank 'em, hit 'em from the rear, take your hits and keep moving... Fuzz
I think that it's important to remember that by the end of the war, Patton realized what a scam it was.
