Comments: "Since the election I’ve noticed a very gloomy and defeatist mindset circulating on the right, and not just on this blog. "
The Left could afford to be patient because they were living in a culture that wouldn't persecute them, tax them heavily for their politics, or go inconveniently bankrupt, and would award them comfortable little academic and journalistic spider holes where they could plot their plans and lay their eggs.
A lot of the pundits on the right strike me as being like those on the left who DIDN'T do the planning, DIDN'T take action, who simply followed in the trails of the genuine leaders, and who made loud, confident noises while the genuine work was being done by others. They seem like actors, for example. Or the more passive leftwing academics.
But who on the right is a genuine leader? The two who spring to mind who are actually DOING something, whatever it may be worth, are Bill Whittle and Anne Barnhardt. The rest just talk.

Just waiting for the war to start.
Civil War if we just want to separate, Revolution if we want to take it back.
"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards. On the road to tyranny, we've gone so far that polite political action is about as useless as a miniskirt in a convent."
