Over the last four years and as we’ve approached this year’s fiery election season, the so-called silent majority — the one that elected Trump in 2016 — has only grown larger. And less silent. I know this because I am one of them. And I live in California, where the big question is — in the most divisive and uncertain election in decades — can the Trump train actually cross the border into this most leftist of states? If the recent uptick in MAGA-love popping up in areas notoriously drenched in blue is any indication, we just may be in for something a little different next Tuesday.

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve seen it.  Trump rallies and boat parades have been lining the streets of the rich and famous here in Southern California for months – Beverly Hills, Sherman Oaks, Marina del Rey, and Newport Beach (to name a few), have seen no shortage of MAGA hats and Trump flags flying high, bringing unity between people of all colors, creeds and walks of life seeking to save the future of our beautiful state and country.

But on the morning of October 6, a group of men took this effort to a whole new level. Atop a hillside along the ever-busy 405 freeway in the heart of West Los Angeles, they erected five 20’ tall letters, literally putting TRUMP in the backyard of California’s most progressive and elite. It was a sight that would make any true blue California democrat shake in their boots but spoke loudly to those who have no voice in the “one party state”. It was covered extensively in the local and national press with news footage garnering millions of views on Twitter.

According to group insider “Mr. Black”:

“The sign served two purposes. It was a psychological warfare operation designed to counter the psychological warfare that Newsom, Garcetti and the Democrat-run California government has been running since the lockdown. Putting the word “TRUMP” on a hillside over the 405 — itself a symbol of beauty, aggravation and dysfunction — was intended to let the progressive elite of Los Angeles know that dissidents — MOTIVATED dissidents — live among them.”

He goes on to say:

“It was also a signal to the war-weary AMERICANS here behind enemy lines that they are not alone. That they are on the side of fun and energy.  And that they should GO OUT AND VOTE (for Trump, if that wasn’t clear).”

Never in my lifetime have I seen the likes of this in Southern California – the state in which I was born and raised. In California, people assume you are part of the liberal hive-mind. And if you’re not, you surely are not loud about it.

But there is something new in the air. If you were to ask four years ago if Trump would win California, that question would be so outrageous it would hardly deserve a reply. But this year, this moment in time, is too important to let passively pass us by. And it seems that California is finally starting to understand that.

People are speaking up against the blatant intolerance and violence of the California Left and shoving their faces in the reality that there is an America-loving faction among them. We, the people of Red California, are finally showing power in our numbers. And one-by one we are awakening those curious enough to ask “why.”

So, can Trump win California?

In a state that glimmers with possibility and success – home to Hollywood, Disneyland, gorgeous coastlines, vast farmland, and skyscrapers and forests alike; in a state who’s history is rooted in gold, sunshine and an abundance of dreams, it should come as no surprise that those dreamers, those seeking to revitalize the happiness and prosperity this state has always promised, have set their sights on achieving the “impossible” once again. And as Trump, himself, has said, we should “treat the word IMPOSSIBLE as nothing more than MOTIVATION.”

If a small team of men can send an “impossible” message to the heart of leftist Los Angeles, imagine what an army of them can do with a simple vote. If you are as motivated by this as I am, if you are a proud California native who wants to see this state return to what it once was, if you’re an out-of-stater shocked by the discrepancy between the promise and the ugly reality of modern California, I pray you garner everything you’ve got to get out and vote. Together, we can achieve the impossible. I’m sure of it.
