The sun is shining. I sit at my desk. I am surrounded by complete quiet. Peace, not so much. But quiet. The cats aren’t talking, they were fed. The dogs are laying by my feet like giantly oversized ticks. I faintly hear a few birds chirping outside my office window. They are picking at the bird feed hanging from a tree.
At this very moment, a communist and his companion are sworn in as new President and Vice President of the United States. We know they didn’t get there by merit. We know that they weren’t “voted for”. We know all that. And we fought it. Oh did we ever. And with every step we took to try and to prevent this illegitimate new regime, the noose around our necks was pulled tighter. Until we choked on our own righteousness.
We are right. We were right. Most importantly, we DID everything right. We went and voted. We made our voices heard. We showed everybody that we meant business and that we were doing it the right way.
But the people we voted against, they were the darkness. They were darkness. And like darkness, they laid themselves over us and all of our light, and pushed us to the ground. They won through sheer power. Not because they played fair. But because they simply overpowered us.
So let’s go. Into this new world.. Into this eternal winter we now march into. Tears ain’t gonna help. I cry them nonetheless, but they’re not gonna help.
They won’t stop until we are all silenced, put away, imprisoned, beaten down, and dead. It wasn’t enough to steal the Presidency. Now we all have to suffer. I am not looking forward to this new world. Because I know what life was like in the old world. I will miss it. Especially for my daughter. I will miss it so much.
