    3. Army seals the southern border
    4. D. MacGregor as SecDef
    5. Verifiable elections (I should be able to download the equivalent of 50 Excel spreadsheets and do the count myself, with traceability to unique and registered voters - say, each gets a GUIID every election - trivial - A fun little GUID generator - good one)
    I have a question. Let's say the guy you root for gets in office and does all of that, what happens after 8 years, or 12 or 16, when a guy who wants the opposite gets voted it?
    This is why I don't get politics. I'm guessing the question is too simplistic?

    Simple, we revert to our current state. Drag hour for kids, dependence on foreign energy, erasure of national identity, dissipation of blood and treasure abroad, perpetual suspicion and discord over the democratic process (and where does that go eventually)?

    Smartly, knives were included as contraband. Now the only thing to shank a frog with is a makeshift shiv. It’s enough for a prison population.

    Man, you are such a doomer, it is amazing.

    And he will never back down from this position either. He has been given many opportunities to come clean about it, but he always tries to justify it with BS when confronted.
    While Desantis at the beginning went along with much of the crap, many of his policies and actions over the past few years has stood in good stead for him. Unfortunately the republican party is in disarray, and I hope somehow they figure out their shit before 2024.

    You aren't wrong. There probably wouldn't have been a Pax Romana if Augustus got booted after eight years. Instead of a long term leader we can see, we get a perma-state cabal that can patiently execute its long term vision without any accountability. But VNV is both right and wrong. It is certainly not complicated, but clearly Trump could not do it. That's already been demonstrated. Trump was only allowed to do what can very easily be reversed and doesn't threaten the permanent state's power.

    It's delusional to vote for a building eaten hollow by termites to be made whole again.

    My bleeding heart says he wants to apologize, but no, can’t make the words with his lips. Instead, he made a point in a recent interview that military which lost their jobs due to vex refusal should be reinstated with full backpay. That’s a start.

    Wasn’t he getting there with Schedule F and a burnt-earth approach to the bureaucracy?

    Anyway, I posted my list of requirements. Whomever can satisfy those soonest has my vote. McCarthy’s “Commitment to America” is upside down milque-toast. Start with a punch list of concrete large-scale actions, and ignore Democrats - give them the 1000 yard stare.

    So, what candidate are you willing to waste on the presidency who also might win?

    Your survival, and all of Europe's up until now, was predicated on American order by supreme might and free global trade. Both of those are ending on a global scale in front of our eyes.

    You may not like to admit it, but what has sustained you is evaporating at an accelerating rate. You have no fall-backs. Unless you'd like to be vassals under BRICS. Perhaps you can keep your social credit score high enough.
