I wrote this a moment ago, to a dear friend who knows who she is. I thought I should share it with you.

We are not fighting to save one candidate in one election. We are fighting to save the possibility of free elections.

Nor are we merely facing the possibility of victory by crooks who broadly share our beliefs but are willing to cheat to take power. We are facing the triumph of people who openly tell us they mean to upend every aspect of our Constitutional system, every portion of our Bill of Rights. This is what they say when they’re out of power: imagine what they’ll do once they hold it, once they’ve eliminated every possibility of being dislodged.

Our Republic is hanging by a thread. And I say it that way because it’s not our country but our system that is in danger. America itself will not be lost. But if we lose the Republic, we’ll discover what it was to transition from the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire. The forms will be maintained, but the substance will be utterly different, immensely powerful, and evil.

Such an America could, and if at all possible would, usher in a new high tech Dark Age across the world.

We must not allow that to happen.

This transition did not happen all at once in Rome and it will not here either. We are still in this fight for the integrity of the 2020 election. Even if we lose it, the enemy will be in position to complete their project, but will not have actually done so. There will be yet many opportunities to resist, and to prevail.

Moreover, even if we do not, though the cost was enormous and the losses were vast, yet still: Hitler fell. The Soviets fell. Marcos fell. Jaruzelski fell. Ceausescu fell.

Our fathers defeated the greatest empire in the world, throwing off the tyranny of George III.

There’s always a tomorrow.

Our God is sovereign.


But fight. Fight now, while you can. Fight now, while the cost is less than it will be if you find you must fight later. Fight now, before your grandchildren have to.

Fight. And do not give up. Few in all of history have tasted the freedoms we’ve taken so easily for granted. We must not allow those freedoms to become a distant memory, thought crimes to anyone who recalls them, a legacy we failed to pass on.

We must not allow our liberty to perish from the earth.
