America Is Over, But I Won’t See It Go Without An Epic Fight
By Jesse Kelly
Close your eyes and imagine holding someone’s scalp in your hands. I don’t mean cradling his skull as you thousand-yard-stare at his lifeless face. I mean a real scalp, Indian-style, of some enemy you just killed on the battlefield; somebody you hated and who hated you back.
You killed him, won the day, carved off the top of his skull, and now you’re standing over him victorious on the now-quiet field of battle, with a quiet breeze blowing through your hair. Your adrenaline is still pumping with that primal feeling of victory and the elation of having survived when others didn’t.
But maybe, for just a moment, would you consider it? No, not a real scalping, but a metaphorical one. We’ll come back to this in a minute.
Look, Guys, America Is Simply Going Down
First, we all have to accept certain realities about where we are as a nation. Rains will come and go. The stock market will rise and fall. The sky is blue. Water is wet. And the government in America will just never stop getting bigger. This is simply a fact of life.
We haven’t seen our government shrink since Calvin Coolidge, and there is little appetite among the American public for shrinking the government. We are now at the point in this country where we call them “cuts” if the government doesn’t increase spending quite as much as they had planned.
So, barring some unforeseen awakening, America is heading for an eventual socialist abyss. It is really only a matter of dates. Will we all die in the inevitable communist purges within ten years? Of course not. Will it happen within the next century or two? Almost certainly.
In a way, it is actually a good thing. God gives each of us a period in history to live through. Why not have one that is memorable? I am thrilled to live in these times. Any man can coast through 80 years of a society at its pinnacle. His life will start and end, and it will be as if he never existed. Wouldn’t you rather live through an era people write stories about? I want to have a smirk on my face as I walk through the pearly gates of heaven, shaking my head, and saying to myself, “What a life.”
We Can Go Quietly, Or Fight to the Death
Do you remember the American Indians? Most likely you at least give them a passing thought whenever you pull a stick of Land O’ Lakes butter out of the fridge or hear some liberal pretend to be outraged over the Washington Redskins. Either way, they were the randomly settled group of nomadic tribes who resided in America before a bunch of Europeans arrived, took all their lands, and conquered them.
The Indians were faced with something that faces all civilizations. It’s something we face now. They were facing the unstoppable force of inevitability. Many of them knew it. The settlers from Europe were about to take over every inch of this country. Some tribes, like the Choctaw, chose to play nice with the government in hopes that their peaceful gesture would be returned. They got a Trail of Tears for their kindness.
But some tribes, like the Lakota, chose a different path. They chose war. Leaders of the Lakota like Sitting Bull knew full well how this war would end. Nevertheless, he gathered thousands of young warriors in the Black Hills and made his enemy feel some pain before he surrendered. He scored a decisive win at the Battle of the Little Bighorn and collected some scalps. Yes, the U.S. government prevailed in the end, but General Custer and his 200 men weren’t there to see it.
That brings us to the continuous internal battle we see on the Right. We have this ever-present acrimony between the factions because some of us will not accept where we are and the enemies we face.
Some on the Right believe that tyranny in this society, as in all societies, is inevitable. The people who will micromanage every aspect of your life are not God-fearing conservatives. They are leftists, and they are vicious.
They are not political opponents in the sense that you have a debate with them. These modern-day leftists want you to lose your job. They want to destroy you. How do you think they’re going to treat you when they finally sit in the seat of power for good? So fight them tooth and nail. Make them long for the day when you’re no longer fighting them. Be the Lakota.
At the End, Which Will You Have Wanted to Be?
Some on the Right will flatly reject this. They think we simply have a few minor policy quibbles with the Left. They think we would be able to settle these minor differences if it weren’t for the brutish Neanderthals who think it’s some kind of fight.
This group really peaked in 2016 after Donald Trump won the GOP primary. They began scolding the dullards who were too stupid to just believe everything printed in The New York Times. They lecture us to this day. They live for compromise with the Left, always ignorant of the fact that just a little more big government is still big government. They are the Choctaws. “Just trust the U.S. government. I’m sure they’ll treat us well in the end if we’re nice.”
So, back to scalping thing. When you make that long trek to the reservation the leftists have set up for you—and make that trek you will—what memories do you want to take with you? When living in the liberal utopian nightmare of 57 genders and government control over everything in your life, you will want to have been a Lakota. You’ll want to know, to remember, even just cherish the knowledge that, one day, you rode out onto the plains and made them feel pain.
Emotionally I can ‘get’ the urge to go down fighting and to ‘take one with you’. It must come from the paternal line’s short-fuse temper (to outside threats to the family, DIY projects that go wrong and machines that break down), that and the Celtic bloodline (Welsh with some Irish).
In Europe we’ve had two thousand years (or more) of this. The trouble is there are always survivors and there is always ruin and survivors and they bear the heaviest of burdens while for the dead it is over.
Compromise, acquiescence even surrender are never easy, the latter is downright ugly. The question facing many a man (and woman) over the centuries has been… now that the war is lost I can fight on, but if I go down; who will care for my family? That must have been a hell of a question for all soldiers of the conquered side; imagine the ordinary ‘landser’ in the Wehrmacht in the spring of 1945?
I have never ‘been there’; I thank God for that.
My father who served in WWII in the British Army from the age of 18, for 3 years (wounded physically once, and on reflection must have suffered from PTSD) said to me ‘As long as I can worship in my Church I don’t care who runs the country’
Just my thoughts on the subject James.
All the best
You don’t get it. There is NO compromising with the Left. This is proven every day. President Trump has not only offered a compromise but, offered More than asked for. The Left still REFUSES to work with him. The Left has declared war. I say, let’s give it to them.

Be very, very careful James. We have seen this across our lands from the borders of Russia to the coast of Ireland, from the artic circle to the shores of the Aegean and the Mediterranean. We have witnessed this across 2,500 years.
I have a great fondness for the USA and the myriad of peoples who go to make up your nation. There has been a circling of the wagons and folk are not listening to folk anymore. There are no winners when this happens, we seen it, we’ve tasted the ashes and choked on the smoke, buried our dead in time for the next round.
I get it, it’s in my blood and scorched in my heritage, etched in the historical memory and always the bitter question for some ‘was it worth it?’ And many ‘leaders’ walk away unscathed.
And the tragedy is James by our European Standards of Left wing politics (of which I am part), Americans do not have so very much separating them form each other. That is as far as I will go this time, because it’s a long and complex matter from my perception.
Of course it could happen, the USA could shatter or drift apart. History has many examples, none of them pretty or simple.
Best wishes to you James.
Just what in bloody hell has Trump offered to any other than the rich, the big corporations, and the NRA? Not. One. Damn. Thing. What has he taken away from us? The list is too long for a comment box. You wear blinders and have your fingers in your ears, but certainly not on the pulse of the nation. The majority … 60+% … are intelligent enough to see that what he and his policies are doing is turning this nation into a plutocratic oligarchy.
Just out of curiosity, why do you put so much time and effort into this blog that only 1 or 2 people ever read?
Why do you feel the need to hide/delete my responses to your blogs?? COWARD.
I don’t fear you or your responses, but I told you long ago that I will not tolerate disrespect, and you seem to know no other way to speak.
It’s how I respond to DISHONEST Liberals like you.
