If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you…

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    —Rudyard Kipling

IT'S GETTING HARDER AND HARDER TO FIND A MODERATE. Parents who attend school board meetings are under investigation by the FBI; Catholics who attend Masses held in Latin are under investigation by the FBI. Our government has declared that “white supremacists” are the greatest danger to the country (if you aren’t sure what a white supremacist is, you must be one). If you are feeling left out because the FBI isn’t investigating you, just file a Freedom of Information request to see the file they have on you; if there isn’t one yet, ask again next month and see how quickly they can gather information about you. When the media decries the polarization of America it is only a complaint that more politicians are voting against the swamp.

America is splitting apart. The left protects their supporters who riot in the streets and force stores to close down by repeatedly looting them. The right protests certification of Presidential election results, and the protesters are imprisoned for “interfering with government functions” while the left protects a squad member who pulled a fire alarm to interfere with a Congressional vote. The “Justice” Department offers sweetheart deals to Hunter Biden and engages in bogus prosecutions of anyone who has met Donald Trump. Crime and homelessness are now common in all of our largest cities. While on the right, a small group of Representatives removed the Speaker of the House for being unwilling to shut down the government. The only thing that still unites us is our opposition to each other.

ON THE OTHER HAND, what we see on the news doesn’t represent most of the people in America. Even on the left, people are beginning to regret recent trends. Our sanctuary cities are crying “no mas” and some of the “defund the police” elected politicians are re-thinking the wisdom of their past votes (being car-jacked in your own driveway can sometimes clarify considerations that seemed unimportant while you were busy virtue-signaling). A lot of damage has been done to our country with open borders, no-bail laws, and Soros-funded prosecutors. The people who don’t usually pay attention to politics have been shown why votes do make a difference. We have already seen a groundswell against woke politics in school board elections, and in the election of a Republican governor in Virginia. Perhaps we have hit bottom, and those addicted to voting their feelings may start to vote for their safety.

THE CHAIRMAN, seeking to identify more people for the FBI to investigate, has called for a debate:

RESOLVED: We are all extremists now.

The debate will be held on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, at Burger Moe’s, 242 West 7th Street, St. Paul, MN 55102.

The Chancellor and Chairman encourage people to arrive before 7 o’clock p.m. and to thank our host venue by spending money while partaking of food and drink. The debate will begin at half past seven.  Gentlemen who wish to speak must wear a tie, and ladies are asked to uphold a similar sartorial standard. For gentlemen arriving sans tie yet wishing to discourse on the resolution, the Purveyor of Ties will have on hand several from his remarkable collection. Questions regarding caucus procedures or about the John Adams Society may be directed to the Chairman at (612) 741-3272 or the Secretary at (651) 552-8744.
