The only real plan is "we the people."
By now, you’ve all heard the claims from the hopium merchants seeking to peddle their wares after the 2020 elections. If you haven’t, I suspect you reside on the dark side of the moon or are successfully off the grid in the wilderness. Like snake oil salesmen, these merchants wanted us engrossed in Q-Anon videos1, watching the newly anointed celebrities of elections integrity, and trusting “the plan.” This “plan” was intricate and involved many moving parts and we average American citizens were not capable of understanding it, just send us your money. This plan would have fixed everything and would have led us all to a glorious renaissance of liberty and freedom. Let’s review the bidding:
Need I go on?
There is much more, and I’m sure those watching the celebrity circus that started post-2020 election could expand on this list. The simple fact of the matter is that there is and was no plan - no human wizard behind the curtain with their hands on the switches of fate or timing ready to make massive change a reality right now. There is only you. You are the one who must get active and boldly head out into the arena of politics and governance and make your voice heard. You must recruit a team of people whose passion aligns with yours and pursue practical, tactical actions like these. You must accept the risk; your nation needs you to.
There is a “we,” though, and we must take action to clean up D.C. and the Swamp that runs deep. It’s so deep that our constant worrying and trying to solve this by “red waves” is only skimming off the top while the swamp monsters refill it from the bottom. We must pull the plug to drain it fully, and it will take time – time, I hope we have. Pulling the plug means being aware of international and national concerns but acting locally. To save a nation, we must rebuild community.
In Restore Liberty, we call this “Think Globally, Act Locally,” for we must build the stable of constitutionally minded people at all levels and enforce the principles and mechanisms of federalism at the county and state levels first. When the states start flexing their 10th Amendment muscle and declare themselves constitutional sanctuaries, then will we begin to see the power of the Constitution and of the people once again? It’s our right and a necessity to tell the federal government to get back in its constitutionally mandated box and only do those jobs that we approved.
No more strings attached to federal tax money, for that is our money. No more of the corrupt Department of Justice pursuing parents for defending their own children. No more FBI raids on those advocating for the protection of innocent life. No more failing upwards and running uniparty candidates for higher level office after they failed where they were already. No more fealty to the party as THE test. Only fealty to the United States Constitution and the people of this great nation. It’s time for accountability, honesty, integrity, and the desire to do what is best for all Americans.
So don’t trust the “plan.” Only trust those you know and are closest to you. Build your team. No more watching and trusting – only action. You are the only one coming to save you. Be a part of The Great We-Set.

1 There are truths in the Q Anon series such as the proliferation of pedophilia and trafficking, but much of what was published is untrustworthy and ineffective to its own claimed purpose. Readers should ask themselves why the series stopped so shortly after all the election activity if the creators were so focused on the criminal behavior.
