"If ever there were a time for the sleeping giants to be bright eyed and bushy tailed, it will be in 2020. Yes, the next election will be just as important as 2016. If we lose the White House to a socialist, it will be game over."
My wife and I love to travel up the North Short of Lake Superior. Been up there in all the seasons. Once in a while, we cross the border and head up to Thunder Bay. As you are getting close to the town of Thunder Bay, a magnificent scene appears on the horizon. A huge rock formation, which looks a bit like a man sleeping on his back. The locals call it the Sleeping Giant.
But that is not the sleeping giant I want to talk about. Right after the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto is reported to have said, "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." Closer, but still not the sleeping giant I want to talk about.
I saw the sleeping giants. Close up and personal. It was a sight I will never forget - nor will my wife. It was 2016, early winter. After almost 8 years of Obama, caucus night was upon us. My wife and I were conveners. The frustration within the patriots and citizens was at an all time high. At the caucus, there was going to be a straw poll to pick the Presidential nominee for the November election. Our little precinct was full up and busting at the seams. We had over a hundred people - similar numbers were also present at the other precincts.
In November, people who may have been sleeping during the past eight years, came to the polls in droves. The desire to purge ourselves of the Obama legacy, and to ensure we would NEVER have a President Hillary Clinton, was at a fever pitch. And it worked! Even though Hillary won the popular vote (supposedly), Trump took enough key states to seal the deal. It was Nirvana! For a change, the country was going to work again! The White House, Congress and the Senate belonged to the Red Team. Then came the 2018 elections. The giants had once again fallen back to sleep.
So who then, are the sleeping giants? Truthfully? They are not the Republicans, not the Democrats, and not the independents. However, they reside within all three sectors. They are the normal folks. The taxpayers who believe in the wisdom, and therefore the ruling authority of our Constitution. Plus - they have a deep, abiding love for this country. They are consumed with the alluring freedom of our liberty. Who are the sleeping giants? Real Americans. Those who were once called the silent majority.
Pay attention to the rhetoric being spewed by the nut balls who are vying for the Democrat Presidential nomination. If ever there were a time for the sleeping giants to be bright eyed and bushy tailed, it will be in 2020. Yes, the next election will be just as important as 2016. If we lose the White House to a socialist, it will be game over. Not hyperbole - fact. Game over.
