I’m getting comments from people who feel discouraged and demoralized by how much power anti-American leftists have managed to seize, and how it’s being used to silence and bully anyone who dares stand up to them or even voice an opposing view. People want me to stop telling them so much bad news and offer more optimism.

Well, we’re trying, but you have to understand that part of what we do here is pass along the latest news we think you need to know, reportedly accurately and honestly, and frankly, a lot of it right now is pretty bad. There’s nothing that can be done about that, and there’s no sense in burying our heads like ostriches and pretending it doesn’t exist.

However, I hope you notice that I never advocate for conservatives to give up or go into hiding. To the contrary, I’ve urged you to stay calm and stay confident. I keep trying to remind you that while the big bullies of DC, social media and Wall Street think they have all the power, they only have as much as we allow them to. They need us more than we need them.

Today’s social media “giant” like Twitter can become tomorrow’s MySpace overnight (once described by Seth Meyers as the Internet’s abandoned playground) if we turn our backs on it. Google can’t track you, sell your data or try to brainwash you with slanted news coverage if you do your searching on DuckDuckGo. Some high-flying Wall Street hedge fund billionaires just got their wings clipped by a bunch of small investors on Reddit who decided they needed a spanking. Bed Bath & Beyond dropped MyPillow and their stock dropped 36% in one day. Even "Star Wars" movies can tank if they're filled with preachy leftist messages.

There’s a reason why we have the saying, “Get woke, go broke.”

Yes, it’s hard now, with the left flexing its power everywhere, from shutting down Parler to Biden’s hard-left executive orders to firing employees just for supporting Trump. But we’re only in Act One of this drama, where the villain is doing his worst. One thing you can always depend on with leftists: they have zero ability to think and plan long-term, and they always immediately overreach.

The inevitable backlash is already starting to boil. And not just among 75 million Trump voters, but also a lot of moderates and Democrats who thought they were getting “Unity Joe Biden” and not AOC in a blue suit and face mask. Remember, Republicans did really well in the last election on the state and local levels. Don’t get discouraged, get motivated and keep that momentum going.

As of this year, Republicans will have complete control (Governor and both houses of legislatures) in 24 states, while Democrats have only 15. Republicans have full control of the legislatures in 31 states; Democrats only 18. In terms of population, Republicans control legislatures that represent nearly 186 million Americans; Democrats less than 134 million.

So no, we are not “all socialists now.” Democrats in DC and a handful of big cities are shoving the pendulum so far to the left that it’s bound to swing back and knock them for a loop. Biden is now giving Americans a loud wake-up call as to why they replaced him and Obama with Trump and how foolish it was to let the media convince them to trade peace, security and prosperity for “no more mean tweets.” From polls to social media to diner conversations, you can already sense the outrage growing of “this is not we signed up for.”

The best advice I can give you is to keep reading the bad news I have to send you, but don’t get depressed, get energized to change it. Let the “woke” corporations know that you will withhold your business and they will go broke. Utilize the courts to block unconstitutional executive orders and bills, and to sue the daylights out of companies and universities that fire or silence employees for exercising their rights. Find alternatives to Internet companies that hate you, and if they destroy those alternatives, find new ones (wherever there’s a profit to be made, new alternatives will arise.)

You can also let your Republicans Representatives and Senators know that you expect them to tighten voting laws and to do everything in their power to block this Democrat bill to destroy free speech and rig elections forever; and if you’re from a purple state, let your Democrat officials know that they will soon be unemployed if they vote for it.

With the Democrats exposing what they are and blowing their support already, start working and volunteering now to be ready to take back your cities, states and the US House and Senate in 2022 (and don’t fall into the trap of forming a third party, splitting the vote and reelecting Democrats with less than 50%. That’s how we got Bill Clinton, twice.) And of course, never stop praying for America to survive, revive and thrive.

Finally, do what we try to do here every day: explain, with calmness, facts and humor, why conservative policies work and leftist policies don’t. And don’t get discouraged in thinking that nobody will listen anymore. Young people are famous for rebelling against the older generation, and the current generation of leftists in Washington is giving them a stunningly bad example to rebel against. Here’s a story that might just give you some hope for the future.

    I always want to know the truth, no sugar coating. The news now makes me pray harder for God's mercy, for the people of America to repent and for us to turn wholeheartedly back to Him. He is our only hope. ??

    even your best advice is discouraging. I would have thought you would have said to Continue in Gods Word DAILY.. But NO! Keep reading the bad news is the BEST? you can do. Go figure.

    Hey Gov. Mike, this is a great post! I've been telling my friends much the same thing. I've always been a believer that there's a political equivalent to Newton's Second Law of Motion; namely, that for every reaction there's an equal and opposite reaction (without Newton's prose). President Trump and his policies likely wouldn't have happened without the Obama presidency. I suppose you can say that the Biden Administration is a response to President Trump (to judge from the number of Republicans who cared less about the policies but just didn't like him and voted for someone else).

    The question now is what happens next. Your missive to act locally, get involved, get organized is a good one but guidance and structure is needed. The state level Republican parties often seem to be "playing" at the political game in states that could be influenced. I acknowledge what you say about the gains we've made at the state and Congressional levels, so it's working some places. But what about places like Georgia? Virginia? Michigan? Arizona? Wisconsin? Pennsylvania, for heaven's sake. Those states could and should all be red but the the local Republican party apparatus seems disjointed and unprepared to mount a serious campaign to take back the state.

    In my own state of Virginia, our state party seems out of it and it's unclear if it's getting the support from the Republican national-level party. How do we get engagement there?

    Keep up the great work! And please, keep up approaching this stuff with a sense of humor. You really crack me up. When you're on Maria Bartiromo or F&F or some other site, you always seem to be in a good mood and that's encouraging.

    Thank you so much. THIS is what we need to hear more of. We need the news and the truth seasoned with reminders of our strength and actions we can take. Thank you, Mike Huckabee!
