A saying commonly used in combat zones is “Complacency Kills”. It is meant to remind you to always be aware of your surroundings, never let your guard down and be prepared for anything. This saying applies to politics as well. Although not literally, it is something that conservatives need to always keep in mind.
After Donald Trump pulled off the biggest upset in American political history, conservatives had a feeling of enjoyment, excitement and exhaustion. After a long brutal primary and general election, months and months of rallies, tweets and protests, conservatives needed a break. We did it. We fought hard and we won. But this is not the time for a break.
Unfortunately, as conservatives, we are always on the defense. We have to defend from Hollywood, the liberal media, academia, Antifa and the billionaire liberal business leaders that support those groups. Our back is always against the wall and we know if we give an inch, they will take a mile. At the March For Our Lives recently, they said just that.
This is not the time to become complacent. This is not the time to attack the President because he might do something you don’t completely agree with. This is not the time to give up and stay home during midterm elections. This IS the time to double down. To do everything you can to help push the Donald Trump agenda. If conservatives loose the majority in Congress in 2018 the President will be a lame duck for the next two years. That is not an option we can accept.
