Good question..

We defeat them by empowering ourselves and each other.

We can defeat them by chilling out on the labels. (I'm guilty of it too)

We defeat them by knowing what we are putting in, and subjecting OUR bodies and brains to, so we can be stronger (More importantly what THEY are subjecting us to) People are literally zombified. (and I hate to use that term because because it is what "they" are using to dehumanize a certain segment of the population to make them more expendable.....another "label")

If we can break their stranglehold on the money supply, create our own energy, and be in control of our food, we'll be in good shape. If we can realize that LIBERTY IS OUR COMMON BOND , not religion or any of the other divisive issues that seem to show up on our doorstep like a flaming bag of crap)

Does that sound lofty? Sure it does. All I can control is myself and hopefully positively impact my sphere of influence. The rest as I see it is out of my control.

I think it was Kissinger who said "you want to control a nation, you control its resources. You want to control a people, you control the food."
Liberty for me is learning how to be self reliant so I can somewhat free myself from their tyrannical grip.

That's why "gardening threads" are so popular. They're not just feel good threads in the midst of a world of hurt, they're empowering.

We are facing some very trialling times coming up. I believe there is going to be a convergence of powerful storms on the horizon. We're facing record drought, record food shortages, record corruption, collapsing economies, world war. I could go on and on. We are facing MUCH bigger challenges than just fixing the GOP.

My advice bro, is to brace for impact. Try and be in a situation where you can best protect your loved ones if needed, and brace for impact. I'm weary from the old "red team vs blue team" shit. It's time for contingency plans imho. Try and put the labels aside (that goes for me too) and try and focus on where our energy is best focused right now at this point in history. That's my humble opinion.

Everyone is on edge. We're tuned into the world, and it's like pissing on an electric fence (not that I would know.......;)
It's exciting, fearful, and sometimes wonderful. Most (if not all) people here are good people. (some can be dicks)
We sometimes carry the weight of the world on our shoulders, and there's only so much we can do. I'm not trying to sound defeatist, I'm trying to be realistic. Just be happy to be around other people who care about the direction of this country and their futures. Unfortunately we're a minority.
I've never liked that saying "freedom is popular." People do NOT understand "freedom" until they learn HOW they've been enslaved. The only way to do that is to seek and speak the truth, as ugly as it may be. Live it as best you can.
Peace for me is through preparation, whether it be mentally, spiritually, or physically. I'm at peace with whatever happens. Do I have fears and concerns? Of course. Just like most here. But I'm at peace for the most part. I'm not afraid of death. If it comes, hopefully it will be peaceful or for a good cause.
Anyway, I didn't mean to go all deep on you, but you asked an important question. How do we defeat our opponents? Sometimes we're our OWN worst opponent.
I think there's a difference between "paranoid" and prudent.

Peace
