By now everyone has heard, but there was a rather large convoy of Trump decorated vehicles that stormed around the I-275 loop in Cincinnati. Like in other parts of the country where boat parades, motorcycle gatherings, and now massive shows of force from cars and trucks giving just a hint to the silent majority that everyone has been talking about are emerging as a counter force to the anti-American forces that have made themselves known of late attached to the Democrat Party. I received several media requests yesterday about the event and how footage could be obtained about some of the participants for some pre-convoy coverage on Friday, which sent me scurrying about to fulfill the request. The truth is, and I told this to the reporters, the people who normally organize the official Trump events had little to nothing to do with the convoy. It was purely a grass roots movement created on social media and exploded into its own thing. And that was the story, not that it was happening so much, but that it happened without formal organized effort driven officially by the campaign.
I was at the Victory Center in West Chester for Trump several times on Friday performing other clandestine activities that were official but that was another story that I likely won’t be talking about—that’s why its “clandestine.” But it did give me a chance to talk to the official Trump people about the convoy for which they replied, “we have nothing to do with it. But they are meeting from this area at IKEA right over there,” (pointing to the south through the Victory Center windows. A little twinkle in the eyes of the men who had lived long enough to see everything and yet were still surprised that Democrats were challenging the patriotism of America in this election, much to their demise. And that was the spirit that drew together so many thousands of people to spend their own time and money to make a proclamation in favor of President Trump. What nobody from the SWAMP seemed to understand was what Trump was to the people who voted for him. Yet, they were finding out early in the election cycle with events like this convoy.
That is the key to any successful endeavor, when a leader of any kind can unlock “engagement” from the people following them, massive success is always short to follow. Engagement is one of the most difficult things to measure in any work culture, its where people do things because they want to, not because they are asked by a boss, meaning that the needs of something get done by those most able to do it in the fastest manner. So for those concerned about a civil war, which I would argue we have been in for a decade at least. A formal war against the socialist and Marxist Democrats will be a disaster for them because on their side, they have only followers, they do not have the kind of self-initiated engagement that has emerged first from the Tea Party movement that has now carried over into the Trump Presidency. Engagement does not show up on all the fancy graphs that businesses use to track productivity, its one of the most mysterious aspects of human behavior, and we can see it clearly in September for the re-election of President Trump. Events like this rally are just the tips of icebergs that are emerging from the water. Behind them are many millions of people who feel the same, but are shy to reveal their intentions due to social unrest and the peer pressure to conform. Their engagement to the problem is revealed in other ways, like picking up yard signs, spreading blog posts from conservative writers, or pushing back on social media chats about the state of the world from the Marxists of the Democrat Party. That engagement to the problem is so widespread in the Trump push for re-election says most everything anyone needs to know about the 2020 election season.
Donald Trump has been able to unlock the engagement of his employees for decades, it was most evident on his hit television show, ‘The Apprentice.’ That show was entirely about how engagement happens in a culture and how every business enterprise in the world that is successful discovers it, and nurtures it to fruition. The political left doesn’t have engagement and they know it, so their entire strategy is to use fear to clamp down on Trump’s supporters and their propensity toward engagement. Many of their riots and protests are meant to appeal to the animal aspects of their participants, but the goal is terrorism specifically to destroy the enthusiasm of the party they are fighting against. Instead of Trump supporters engaging in the political process, the Democrat terrorist intend to use fear to keep them hiding. But as was clear by the amount of people who showed up at the Trump convoy around Cincinnati on Saturday September 12, 2020, the engagement is winning which is truly terrifying to witness for the Democrats.
What this means in terms of “war” and actual battles that would make up the history of a civil war in the traditional sense is that it doesn’t take a general to organize the troops to combat. The people show up and do such a thing out of free-will. That is how a future state militia would operate as well. Should Marxists take over as they have with similar insurrections in China, South Africa, and Cuba—and countless other places as well—then the same people who decorated up their cars to show support for their political candidate will be grabbing guns, legal or illegal and they will be meeting the oppressors willy nilly anywhere they appear preventing any sort of control over the population in general. So should Democrats cheat and win this election, that would be the future civil war everyone is talking about. One side has natural engagement, the other doesn’t leaving the weaker side to assuredly loose any battle that might take place. Fear is not a motivator that creates engagement, and when that is all that holds people to a political party, it is easy to defeat such people. But it is not easy to defeat people who come to that political party out of excitement and optimism. That is how you can know who will win or lose in any battle whether its political in nature, or in combat. Its all the same.
Personally, I think convoys are much better ways of conducting battle than grabbing guns and killing the other side. The point in killing the other guy is to lower their engagement and make them fear losing, sending them to hide from war and thus the battlefield. In this case, the engagement has already been gained by one side as the other continues to surrender on sight. The rallies Trump has is a show of force that the other side can’t produce, which is better than actually killing them on a battlefield. The effect is the same, except without the deaths. So I am quite proud of everyone for showing this force now rather than later. It likely can do more good today than it will after November 3rd 2020. But its also good for that other side to know what’s coming to them even if they do manage to steal an election. They don’t have engagement in their party, only fear and loathing, and that isn’t going to win anything in any straight up conflict. Which of course would be the next step should they seize power. They don’t have the “engagement” to keep it. But the Trump side does, which is all anybody needs to know about the 2020 election.
