So you're starting to answer the question before I ask it. You and I believe the same thing: that, whether it's the spending, the degeneracy, the culture, the demographics, the weaponization of our agencies, our government is a bigger threat to us than anything. I view the federal government as not something that needs to be fixed—because it just won't be—but something that we need to defeat and to protect ourselves from.
Even a guy like DeSantis, as great as he is: does he give us false hope that we can change things? Ten years ago, I would've been dancing from the rooftops; typically, we’d have the worst Republicans as the front-runners for president. And here you have a guy that has all the qualities—the heart, the brains, the implementation, the ability to raise money and organize, the articulateness. And he could go the distance, potentially. Yes, there's a part of me that’s excited—but at the same time, Dave, what do we expect to accomplish with him as president? And are we just distracting from our goal of making red states red again and creating that Noah's Ark sanctuary from the federal government rather than a Pickett's Charge, an ill-fated attempt at fixing the federal government?
