Time to Get Down to Brass Tacks

This is the Battle of Lepanto of 1571, where the Ottoman Turks were decisively defeated by (a) the outnumbered Christian fleet, and (b) the Rosary, thereby saving Christian civilization.

437 years later, we face our own Battle of Lepanto. This time, we will need five things: (1) conservatives showing up to the polls; (2) prayer; (3) more prayer; (4) still more prayer; and (5) yet still more prayer. Time to wear out the rosaries.

Additional suggestion: a novena of the Dominican Litany of the Saints, starting October 27th and ending on Election Day. After all, it is said: "Beware the litanies of the Dominicans!"
