The President of the United States
Washington, D.C. 20500
Dear Mr. President:
Last week, this correspondent posited that only one solution existed for red-state (and county) Americans facing “Californication” in the wake of the Democrats’ brazen theft of your presidency and soon, the Georgia runoffs.
“Partition” (a preferable term to the baggage-laden “secession”) is the only avenue to escape the inevitable (in author Michael Anton’s words) “high taxes, higher costs, cratering standards of living, declining services, deteriorating infrastructure (and) worsening quality of life” accompanying a leftist takeover.
And the suggestion was here that partition must follow the same path as same-sex marriage and other radical leftist notions: “from anathema to mandate and impossibility to imperative” – only much faster.
Partition would have “to be spoken, then shouted – demanded – and commanded.” Then, “not just speaking the unspeakable until it becomes conventional,” adherents would have to “dispens(e) with niceties such as settled law and procedure,” as leftists have done.
Specifically, deep red states could “simply declare the Union dissolved by nefarious actions to disenfranchise Americans,” and red counties could declare independence or seek annexation.
But there’s actually a faster way to get to partition – based on the recognition that every historic movement requires a historic leader.
Only one figure has the existing base of support, charisma and cajones to eschew convention in pursuit of corrective action to cut the Gordian knot of complexity and apprehension surrounding partition.
Mr. President, more than ever, now is your moment.
By all means, exhaust every effort to preserve your presidency, and thereby the nation. Seek every legal remedy. Turn over every stone for new evidence of fraud.
But everyone knows time is running out on this effort. The Democrats had months to plan whatever scandalous scheme they hatched to erase your insurmountable leads in not one, but four swing states. Even avalanches of affidavits and piles of purloined and prestidigitated ballots will not be enough, in a few short weeks, to meet the daunting standards of evidence and overturn the all-but-declared defrauding of voters.
Once the Electoral College has stated its verdict, and you inevitably concede, you must be ready to take the next step.
2024? As if.
The Democrats, supported by legacy media, will spend the next four years not just trashing you and your legacy – and likely, prosecuting you – but also perfecting the perfidious procedures that enabled them to nullify the consent of the governed. Sen. Lindsey Graham is right: Now that the Democrats will basically get away with larceny, America may never elect another Republican president. Including and especially you.
Meanwhile, over four years, Democratic Socialists will unwind your enormous accomplishments: budding peace in the Middle East based on fervent loyalty to Israel and shared antipathy to Iran, standing up to foes and fair-weather friends alike, historic economic and job growth (and since the COVID-induced stupor, recovery) based on regulatory reform, common sense on climate change, and a slowdown of illegal immigration (already being reversed).
No, Mr. President, you must capitalize on your existing bully pulpit – and bulldog manner – in the here and now. Mobilize your powerful base of support – possibly a majority, given the unmasking of fake polls – behind partition by openly putting the concept on the table and transporting it from the fringe to the center of national discussion.
Call together leaders from the most likely participant states – one reader has suggested Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia, Wyoming, and Utah – and gather sufficient support to gain critical mass.
Host a Declaration of Dissolution by states willing to take the lead with you (Mount Rushmore would be a wonderful venue). Announce a provisional government (led of course by the rightfully elected president and current members of Congress).
And begin your latest Art of the Deal negotiations for the division of spoils, from a position of strength. After all, for all the talk of 70% of GDP supposedly being in Biden America, the red states are where, to paraphrase George Bailey, “most of the working and paying and living and dying” takes place in our nation, and where the real wealth – as opposed to financialized Ponzi-scheming with other people’s money – is created. Not to mention the location of most of the military strength.
Along with the provisional government will come the announcement of a new Constitutional Convention for “New America” (another reader suggestion). It should go a lot faster than the previous one, since New America can start with the original document and the most reasonable amendments and court precedents.
This commentator concedes he didn’t always have this much faith in you (a simple Google will confirm involvement in extreme Never-Trump efforts). But you’ve proven your conservative bona fides – and commenced an American Awakening that can be sustained only via the New America Opt-Out.
You’re not the only one who can advance the partition movement and thereby protect your legacy from America’s hijackers. But you’re in a unique and historic position to do so.
Mr. President, let’s roll.
