Sarah A. Hoyt is as cautiously optimistic as I'd like to be:
I know almost everyone here — this blog being full of people who know history and how societies work — has been frozen in horror watching as a deep field of liberty-loving candidates is getting reduced to one old narcissist who frankly has always, for sixty eight years, supported the most big-government, socialist ideas he could find.
I’m here to tell you this is not the end. It’s not the end because of what America is and who Americans are.
