The End of a Beginning: A great American novel emerging

I think it was way back in August of 2015 that I said I’d considered not contributing articles everyday like I do presently if Donald Trump were elected president—mainly because his presence in the race for the White House, or from the White House does much of what I have been doing with all this work.  Well, after tonight’s performance in the East and the strong showing once again in five more states with clear indications of a strong finish in the biggest of all, California—it is clear that Donald Trump should be the Republican nominee for POTUS in 2016.  Even with the silly little Kasich/Cruz alliance, the only hope they have is to get to a floor fight at the convention to be president—which won’t go over well as it goes against the popular vote.  A lot of people never got over the Bush/Gore tie in 2000 where technically Gore won the popular vote, but Bush won the electoral votes.  This Trump situation is much more flammable than even that, so I don’t see anybody but Trump running as a Republican against Hillary Clinton.  And as for Hillary, she barely beat Bernie Sanders.  She won’t be able to withstand a focused attack by Donald Trump every day.  He will simply outwork her, and she won’t win a general election.  So for all practical purposes, Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States.

I am an excellent judge of character and it may take five or six years for others within the Republican ranks to see what I do in Trump, but history will agree with me.  Conservatives are not going to win major elections trying to shift the country radically back to the political right after 100 years of liberal erosion—so you have to pick your battles.  Trump is all about the economy, border security, and trade negotiations—which is an excellent place to begin.  Real conservatives need to keep their eye on 2024 for all the social issues.  You have to fix the economy first and sustain the integrity of our sovereignty before we worry about guys wanting to use the restrooms of girls.  These are all big issues but moral depravity escalates when people don’t have money in their pockets.  Morality is a lot easier to sell when people have something of value that they appreciate—and right now—we just don’t have that type of society.

Trump from the White House will utilize the power of positive thinking to unlock America’s potential.  It won’t be Trump’s policies that do it—it will be his mouth and charisma, and I see a path where he can do a lot more from the White House than the slow trickle that I perform with all my articles trying to teach people to do the same thing in their private lives.  The next four to eight years will be a whirlwind and situations will change—and a chapter of our lives will close as a new one begins. That means I need to shift my personal role as well.

I have talked prior about a rather epic novel that I’m working on and I have been flushing out the ideas for quite some time.  The articles on this site have played a part of that.  But now it’s time to put pen to paper and to pound out the manuscripts.  Rather than write the 1200 to 1500 words each day that I do here, my efforts need to go into that commercial work.  It’s not the writing itself that is the challenge, it’s the editing and working out the details that takes all the time and that is where I’m going to put my focus at this point   That’s not to say that I won’t make any more contributions—I certainly will.  But as for the daily articles, it is time to let the chain reaction that many of us in this marketplace have set forth to do their thing and to move to the next phase as we see it.

My path is clear and it will take everything I have to get there.  It’s certainly time for me to make this decision.  I’ve delayed my indulgence for about a year because of all the volatility at the presidential level.  It is hard for people to imagine that one guy like Donald Trump might have such a large impact on our culture but I’d ask those who can remember to recollect the difference between 1979 and 1980.  I think the switch from 2016 to 2017 will be much greater and there will be so much news flashing by in such a whirlwind that nobody will be able to keep up.  Meanwhile, I have quite an encyclopedia of articles here to help people through that phase and to guide them into making the correct decisions.  My next role will be context through art—not in the definition of interpretation—which is what I’ve been doing.  Now we need the artistic effort to expand culture and that will be my new focus.   For me the work will be similar, I will write everyday toward a known objective—only people won’t see it as they do now.  They’ll see it in bulk when the projects are released.  For me it is the work of the Great American Novel, something I have been thinking about for quite a long time.  How that novel gets published I’m not sure at this time—because that industry has changed so much.  But first, you just have to write it then measure how best to distribute it.

As for Donald Trump, I know his people have read here and I hope this site continues to be a source of inspiration.  But it’s time for the student to leave the classroom and to utilize what they’ve learned—and I expect that to be the case for everybody—even those silent lurkers who depend heavily on my written words.  I’m not going away—I’m just turning inward so that I can build up to the next great phase which we will see a few years from now.  When we get there—we all need to be ready and I need to focus on getting it right.  I am proud to have played my part in all the multiple fissures that are emerging along the front of establishment debacles.  I consider all this a major mission concluded even if people aren’t aware of the explosions and dawn has not yet revealed all the damage.

Trump winning against the establishment—and I consider Cruz part of the establishment—the church wielding branch—I see an open window for a reiteration of the American idea in much the way that Henry Morgan led the pirates of the Caribbean toward the first free establishment of a constitutional republic without the influence of a king.  I’m not saying that it will be a moral quest, but it will get us where we want to go as a country among the world.  The situation is complicated beyond measure, but ultimately the power of positive thinking will go a long way to getting us there.  So enjoy the victory for those riding the Trump train.  For those not yet there, see you when you arrive. It might take a while but I trust that you’ll arrive in your own way in your own time.  And as for this site, this won’t be the last article.  But they won’t come as often as my focus will be on more commercial material—because that’s what’s needed at this point in time. When the smoke clears—all this will make a lot more sense.
