Have We Lost America? Hell No!


Recommended Posts


Kurt Schlichter



It’s the easiest thing in the world to be a pessimist, and the least American. We’re optimists, and as tough as things are, as many skirmishes as we’ve lost, we haven’t lost this country to the left quite yet. If you had to choose between being them or us, you’d be crazy to choose being them. We’re going to win, and America is going to rise again.


Pessimism is a cop-out, an excuse to do nothing and wait for the end instead of figuratively fixing bayonets and charging head-long into the enemy. That military metaphor is no accident, because decades in the military taught me that “pessimism” is just another name for “failure.” You don’t always get to pick your enemy. You don’t always get to pick your situation. Your job is to take whatever you face, find your advantages, and exploit them to drive on to victory.


We’re conservative Americans. When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, Irish it up with a little Stoli, and then grill a rib-eye while you drink it.


Let’s assess our situation as conservatives. We face a leftist President and his senatorial minions. The media is against us. Our culture embraces a whole range of bizarrely self-destructive and immoral notions. The supposedly conservative party is divided between folks who want to promote conservatism and those who want to promote themselves.


So we’re under siege. So what else is new?
