Your current position is understandable. But maybe take solace

with the colonists in the 1770s.

They faced the most formidable army every assembled on a battlefield.

They won.

Not every battle. And it took them a while to really make progress. They were almost defeated. But they never gave up. They didn't surrender. (when they tried, they were slaughtered or died in captivity of maltreatment)

We might not win, but if we don't fight, we've certainly lost.
