We have so many labels being used today. People call themselves progressives, liberals, Democratic Socialists, conservatives, Compassionate Conservatives, Fiscal Conservatives but Socially Liberal. And on and on. In the 18th century, people also had labels for themselves and others. In days gone by, any who advocated for the advancement of individual rights and liberties to replace the common practice of promoting the rights of a group or community before the rights and liberties of the individual were labeled Liberals. Our founders, those who wrote and signed the Declaration of Independence, fought, and won the War for Independence, wrote, and ratified the United States Constitution, and added the Bill of Rights to that Constitution were called Liberal. Everything these Liberals professed was to limit the power and control of government and expand the rights and liberties of the individual.
Today, those who advocate for placing limitations on individual rights and liberties for the greater good of the community, and expanding the power and control of government for the greater good of the community are labeled liberals or progressives. They are what we call the Democrat Party. Those who would like us to believe they advocate for promoting individual liberties and rights with restrictions on government power and control are most often identified as Republicans.
What history would teach us is that labels are used to mislead. The term democracy is used in names to indicate the party is for rule by the people which connotes freedom. Democracy is in fact dictatorship. In a democracy the majority dictates to the minority with no protection of individual rights or property. When a label begins to have negative connotations, the party will choose another label as when the Democrat party changed their label from liberal to progressive.
When we review history, we learn that we have had two basic philosophies that have transcended all the other misleading descriptions. These two philosophies are individualism and collectivism. Individualism is the philosophy upon which our nation was founded and adhered to up until the 20th century. In the early 20th century, the philosophy of collectivism became a force in our nation. Collectivism places what is termed the “good” of the community or group above the liberties and rights of the individual. Collectivism always becomes totalitarianism and is controlled not by elected representatives but by party appointed bureaucrats, technocrats, and experts. Marxism, communism, socialism, progressives, and today’s Democrat party all advocate for the collectivist philosophy.
Individualism believes the liberties and rights of the individual are not to be restricted or limited for the common “good” of the community or the group. This is why our Declaration of Independence specifically states that our rights and liberties are endowed to us by our Creator. Government is to only protect those rights and liberties, not to limit or abolish them. This is why our Constitution limits the powers of our government to only those listed in the Constitution while expanding the rights and liberties of the individual beyond those listed or specifically named. Individualism is promoted by conservatives and libertarians.
Notice, I did not say that individualism is promoted by the Republican party. The elite of the Republican party tells us they are conservatives and promote individualism, but it is critical to look at actions and not words. First we must define what a conservative is. To do this we will look at how he who penned the “Conscience of a Conservative”, Barry Goldwater, defined conservative.
Mr. Goldwater explained that a conservative always believes in limited government. Throughout history, it is government that has thwarted individual liberty and rights. History has proven that the goal of the collectivist, they advocate for big government, is to place power in the hands of a few for the purpose of controlling and regulating the lives and thoughts of the people.
A conservative will always support limited government, both in numbers of people in government, and amount of financial resources it takes from the private sector. This means a conservative supports lower taxes and less government spending.
A conservative will always support fewer laws and less regulation.
A conservative will always support having a necessary function of government done by government that is closest to the people. The less power in the federal government, the better says a conservative.
A conservative will always support a free-market economy and oppose central planning.
What we have learned, is that in the Republican party, the power elite may voice support for these conservative values, but their actions do not support their words. We have many in the Republican party who are much closer to the collectivist philosophy than they are to the individualist philosophy. These people are labeled RINO’s. Rockefeller and Lindsay from times gone by. More recently the Bushes, Dole, McCain, Romney, McConnell, Boehner, Ryan, Graham, and McCarthy. They have claimed they support less government, lower taxes, fewer regulations, and all that a conservative would support; they have even tried to label themselves conservative, but their actions speak louder than their words.
If you identify as a conservative, not your words or wishes but your core beliefs, you must support conservatives based on what they do and not what they say.
Collectivists and RINO’s support a more powerful centralized government taking more and more financial resources form the private sector, and taking more and more freedom and liberty from you. They support a totalitarian government where the bureaucrats, technocrats, and experts tell each individual how we must live our lives and how we must think.
Those who founded the United States, a unique nation at its founding, understood the necessity of open and unrestricted dialogue and information if it was not to become a totalitarian government.
“It is favourable to liberty. Freedom can exist only in the society of knowledge. Without learning, men are incapable of knowing their rights, and where learning is confined to a few people, liberty can be neither equal nor universal.” Benjamin Rush
“If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the People, they will never be enslav'd. This will be their great Security.” Samuel Adams
The American left today, despises freedom and has embraced totalitarianism. The actions of the American left, in order to transform the United States, now emulates other despotic autocrats as they follow the actions of those whose goal it was to transform their nations to a despotic totalitarian state.
On 25 October 1917, the day after the Bolsheviks seized power, a resolution temporarily forbidding the publication of bourgeois papers and counterrevolutionary publications was issued. On 27 October the Council of Commissars published its Decree on the Press, which gave to the Council of Commissars the right to close down newspapers which advocated resistance to the new authorities or were “sowing confusion by the obvious distortion of facts”.
In January 1918, the Constituent Assembly was suspended, non-Bolshevik political organizations were outlawed, and a strict censorship was imposed. The new regime was forced, due to circumstances, to not to tolerate freedom of criticism, nor repudiate terrorist methods. The new government was firmly on its way to a long period of one-party control in Russia. Censorship was critical.
One of Goebbels first acts was to supervise the burning of around 20,000 books by Jewish or anti-Nazi authors by the SA on the evening of May 10, 1933.
The Reich Press Law of Oct 4th, 1933 banned all Jewish or liberal editors and journalist. The government could now ban newspapers in order to force owners into bankruptcy. Newspapers had to print views which the Ministry agreed with or face the consequences. Newspapers had to print views which the Ministry agreed with or face the consequences. Journalists were given press briefings with information the government wanted public.
University researchers and lecturers were directed by the Ministry to support Nazi views or face dismissal. Between 1933 and 1938, 3000 academics were dismissed. Senior professors and rectors were
Totalitarianism= A political system in which the state holds total authority over the society and seeks to control all aspects of public and private life whenever necessary.
The rule that all who wish to enslave a population to government control is and has been: THE ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS.
The American left, which includes the Democrats and their enforcers, BLM and ANTIFA, and their useful idiots, which includes RINO”S, wishes to make you a slave to the government they control. To a large extent, they have already accomplished this goal. The means they use are many and include, deceit, in your face lies, ostracizing, demonizing, censorship of all forms, arbitrary law, imprisoning opponents, and eliminating or murdering opponents. The American left and their helpers have used every one of the mentioned means, and yes many more.
We are being told today that our nation is a democracy. In fact, we were purposefully formed as a Republic and not a democracy. This was done because our founders understood that democracy is mob rule, democracy is a dictatorship where rights and liberties are under the authority of government and are not inalienable and endowed to us by God. Today we see government limit and abolish our liberties, including freedom of speech and freedom to assemble.
We are being told today that government is our friend and everything government does is for our safety. This is the exact opposite of why our Constitution specifically limits the role of government while placing no limitations on the rights and liberties of the people.
We were warned about government taking our liberties.
Jefferson: "Our government is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit, by consolidation first, and then corruption.... The engine of consolidation will be the federal judiciary; the two other branches the corrupting and corrupted instruments." "The great object of my fear is the federal judiciary. That body, like gravity, ever acting with noiseless foot and unalarming advance, gaining ground step by step and holding what it gains, is engulfing insidiously the [state] governments into the jaws of that [federal government] which feeds them."
Madison: "If Congress can employ money indefinitely, for the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every state, county, and parish, and pay them out of the public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, the establishing in like manner schools throughout the union; they may assume the provision of the poor.... Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America."
Yes, the American left refers to us as a democracy. The American left embraces what Lenin said about democracy when he explained that democracy is necessary to bring socialism and socialism is the gateway to communism. The end goal of the American left is communism.
The American left is telling us that it is our patriotic duty to follow their dictates concerning the China virus. They have lied to us about its origin, per Fauci denying his important role. They have lied to us about its severity by including deaths in numbers where the cause of death was with the China virus and not because of the China virus, and where the China virus was not present at all. They have lied to us about the necessity of masks and lockdowns when societies who never imposed these draconian measures have no worse results and in many cases better results than societies that resorted to draconian orders. They are blocking medically proven therapeutics that successfully treat the virus. They have lied to us about the vaccines. They would have us believe the shots are vaccines. Vaccine as defined by the medical dictionary: a suspension of attenuated or killed microorganisms (viruses, administered for prevention of infectious diseases.
The American left is telling us that because we do not adhere to their totalitarian orders regarding what they call, the devestation of climate change, we are evil. They would have us believe that this so-called climate change is the reason for hurricanes, droughts, floods, storms, forest fires, and all that has been happening from at least the time that the ice age ended. We have been told for the last seventy years at least that unless we adopted their draconian orders, the earth as we know it would end in ten years. Biden just said again. Big Guy Biden, I predict we will be here in 10 years and people like you will have made and be making the same misleading prediction to instill fear.
History does record a time when climate change happened. That was thousands of years ago when the ice age ended. I believe that was the result of an act of God and not because of the numerous numbers of cows at that time like AOC would have you believe. Yes we have had temperatures rise and fall during the time, but Florida remains tropical, and North Dakota has hot summers and cold winters, Egypt remains hot, and Siberia has cold winters. The ice caps expand and contract. People are born and people die. Some people fight for freedom and other people are compliant conform, and become slaves to an evil government.
The single common feature in these lies, is that in order to correct the problem, the people must surrender their individual liberties and rights. When people surrender liberties and rights, governments gain more control and those in government have more and more control over how people live their lives and how they think. Communism is when the bureaucrats, technocrats, and experts, (the deep state) control the lives and thoughts of the population. All are under the total control of the deep state. All become slaves to the deep state. All individual rights and liberties are surrendered. All are compliant to and conform to the dictates of government.
This is the goal of the American left. These are a few of the means they are using to transform the United States into a Marxist totalitarian state.
We have three actions those of us who are Freedom Loving Americans must do if we are to return our nation to a Republic that honors individual liberties and rights, and actually lives by rule of law. We must become political activists. We must attend city, county, and school board meetings. We must run for these positions. We must support and campaign fellow Freedom Loving Americans. We must only support true Freedom Loving Americans for national office. We should never contribute to a political party but only contribute to true Freedom Loving Americans.
We must become committed to civil disobedience. Definition of civil disobedience: refusal to obey governmental demands or commands especially as a nonviolent and usually collective means of forcing concessions from the government. We must not obey directives that do not adhere to the constitution. Executive orders and bureaucrat regulations and demands are not the law. A law, according to the Constitution, is a bill that is introduced, passed by both the House and the Senate, and signed by the President. Executive directives are NOT LAW. There will be consequences for civil disobedience. There is slavery to a tyrannical government, a Marxist totalitarian state, if we do not become dedicated and committed to civil disobedience.
We must become dedicated to “Setting Brushfires of Freedom.” The overwhelming number of Americans do not know our history. They do not understand that if we are to be free, we must again adhere to these founding principles. We must understand what those principles are. The overwhelming number of Americans do not understand that what is being proposed by the American left is slavery to a tyrannical and despotic government. It is evil and is committed to destroy families. It operates on the basis of the means always justify the ends. These means include censorship of both the spoken and the written word, lying, deceit, ostracizing, demonizing, imprisoning, and eliminating or killing. This is what collectivists do.
“Spreading Brushfires of Freedom,” means that we learn and understand who we are and who they are so well that we can ask questions, reverse statements, and set doubt in the minds of the transformation proponents. This is what Thomas Paine did when he wrote “Common Sense”. We must individually set these brushfires in our friends, families, and acquaintances. I would strongly suggest you get and read my latest book, “Spreading Brushfires of Freedom”. I would recommend that you form a group of like minded Freedom Loving Americans who will meet weekly or monthly to share ideas and thoughts and how we can all become adept at this essential process.
Samuel Adams told the American Colonists, “It is high time the people of this country explicitly declare if they will be free, or they will be slaves.” That is the choice facing Americans once again. Will we remain free to make choices for ourselves, to think for ourselves, or will we succumb to the demands of the American left and become slaves of the state who dictates to each of us what choices we will make and how we will think. Each person must decide free or slave There is no neutral ground. The idea you do not have to choose, free or slave, is in fact a choice to become a slave to a totalitarian government.
The last several generations of Americans have not been taught that each generation of Americans must make this choice. The colonists were faced with this choice, and they chose freedom. The choice they faced was no different from the choice we face, nor is it different from the choice people have had to make from the beginning of time. That choice is will we be a nation adhering to individualism or collectivism.
The difference between collectivism and individualism is in what each ideology considers as important: the individual or the group. In collectivism, it is some sort of group rather than an individual who is at the center of all social, political, and economic concerns, and issues. Those who are proponents of this ideology say that the interests and claims of groups (it may even be a state) supersede those of individuals. Collectivism believes in the subjugation of the individual to a group. The individual has to give up their rights for the collective good of the people. The proponents of collectivism consider their stand to be superior to those of individualists as they are morally superior thinking of the collective good of the group or the society. Collectivism is the essence of Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive thinking, which is the heart of the American left which is comprised of Democrats and their enforcers and advocates like BLM, ANTIFA, Democrat Socialists, and RINO’s.
What is Individualism? The focus of all thinking in individualism is the individual. When talking of political ideologies, classical liberalism, this is the basis of our Constitutional Republic, comes closest to this thinking as the individual human being is taken as the central unit. It is not that an individual is any different from the society. However, an individualist, even while remaining within the society makes their own personal choices. This doctrine believes that society is there, but it is ultimately made up of individuals who choose and act. The foundation of individualism lies in one’s moral right, to pursue one’s own happiness. Individualists do believe that it is necessary for individuals to preserve and defend institutions that have been made to protect one’s right to pursue happiness.
Racism is a good example of collectivism where the good or bad an individual of a particular group has done is attributed to the whole group. Think that there is a family who considers their race to be superior to their neighbors who are of a different race. This family forbids their children to be friendly with the neighbors. However, one child refuses to accept that their neighbors are inferior because of their skin color, and he goes on to be friendly with the neighbors. This is an example of individualism. The individual within the group makes their own decisions.
Free societies have always chosen individualism. Totalitarian societies have always come about because of collectivism. This is the choice Samuel Adams told the colonists they must make, free or slave. This is the choice our nation must make today, individualist or collectivist. There is no neutral position. Those who believe they can ride the fence are in fact choosing collectivism, which is totalitarianism, which is slavery.
Tomorrow I will address what those who choose individualism, which is freedom, must do if we are to remain an individualist nation, a free people.
Time after time we hear people say that we must protect our democracy. The United States was not formed as a democracy and was never intended to be a democracy. The American left would like us to be a democracy. Lenin told us democracy always brings socialism and socialism is the gateway to communism. The American left, the Democrats, want to transform the United States to a Marxist totalitarian state or a communist state.
So, what is a Constitutional Republic. A constitutional republic is a type of government in which the officials are elected by the people. The republic must govern according to the laws of the constitution, and its actions are subject to judicial review. This is a representative republic that adheres to the rule of law. The Democrats want a democracy that adheres to arbitrary law.
One difference between a constitutional republic and a democracy is that in a representative democracy, all laws and legislation are voted upon with majority ruling with no supreme law such as a constitution. In a constitutional republic, the elected representatives also decide on legislation as representatives of the people, however, the legislation passed by the elected officials cannot violate the laws of the constitution.
In addition to having elected officials, the other primary defining factor of a constitutional republic is a well-defined constitution that limits the power of the government and elected representatives and also sets out basic structures, laws, and procedures under which the country is to be governed. The constitution must also explicitly specify the rights of the people and is intended to be followed precisely as the people who framed it intended.
In the United States today, the bureaucracy or executive branch has been making law under the guise of executive orders and regulations. This has turned our nation into a dictatorship and violates the United States Constitution in both its written form and in its intent as stated by the founders.
The United States is a divided nation. The American left comprised of Democrats and its supporters including BLM, ANTIFA, Democrat Socialists, and RINO’s demand our Constitutional Republic be transformed into a dictatorial one-party state, or a Marxist totalitarian state. Freedom Loving Americans want the United States to adhere to our Constitutional Republic where rule of law, limited government, protection and preservation of individual liberties and rights are preserved, and only our elected representatives can make law per our Constitution.
It is imperative Freedom Loving Americans understand why we were formed as a Constitutional Republic. It is imperative Freedom Loving Americans understand that our founders realized that if we were to abandon our Constitutional Republic it would result in democracy, which would in turn lead to a tyrannical dictatorship.
When I say the American Left, I include RINO’s, Democrats, and all the leftist groups like ANTIFA, BLM, and the Democrat Socialists. It is these groups that vehemently denounce the values upon which our nation was founded. When I say values upon which our nation was founded, I mean those values defined in our founding documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States which includes the Bill of Rights. We must also include the Bible as a part of our founding documents since it was the source for these values.
The two ideologies that directly oppose American values, Collectivism, and Islam, are the very ideologies the American Left is supporting and promoting. American values have become distorted. Just as the American Left would like us to believe that our Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution which includes the Bill of Rights, are either outdated or they are flexible and can mean anything we want them to mean. They would like us to believe the same about American values.
The Declaration of Independence states very clearly that our rights and liberties come from the Creator, God, and that they are given to us as individuals. The American left wants us to believe that our rights and liberties come from government and that they are given to different communities of people as groups and not as individuals. The Constitution of the United States limits the power of government by listing the limited powers we the people gave it. The Constitution also lists our freedoms and liberties. The Constitution also states that government can never take these liberties or even reduce them. In addition, the Ninth Amendment states, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” The rights of the people go well beyond those specified in the Constitution.
The United States was founded on the principle of Individualism. The American left supports Collectivism which is the basis for Marxism, communism, socialism, and progressive beliefs. America was the land where your future was determined by the choices you made as an individual and not on the social class into which you were born. The Collectivist belief is that we are all defined, not as individuals, but as a part of some community or group. For instance, in today’s environment, if you believe in the teachings of the Bible, you are evil and judgmental. The Bible teaches that murder and being an active participant in the activities of the LGBT communities is sin. The Bible clearly states that participating in sin dooms the individual to eternal damnation unless the individual seeks the forgiveness of God through his son Jesus. Notice, the Bible tells us what sin is and God deals with us as individuals. The American left says sin is not sin but a choice. Because we who believe in the Bible that teaches God deals with each individual based on their choices, we are deemed to be evil.
The United States was founded as a Republic and not a Democracy. A Republic protects the liberties and rights of the individual. A Republic is based on rule of law. This means the law is established and all are treated equally or as individuals under the law. A Democracy is, as our founders told us, a dictatorship of the majority over the minority. Liberties and rights can and are taken from us when the majority deems it. There is no rule of law under a democracy, but the law is what the majority says it is. The law is not applied equally or individually, but is applied as determined by the majority depending on your classification or political allegiance. A Democracy, as we were told and as history has proven, always transforms into a tyrannical government with an elite few wielding unlimited power.
Collectivism is an enemy of a free nation where the individuals control their own life and their own thoughts. Collectivism states that all must conform to the dictates of the collectivist movement, or they will be segregated from society and ultimately eliminated. Ideological differences are not tolerated. Collectivists have always segregated and eliminated individualists and Bible believing individuals. Please note, I do not use the term Christian. Many of the American left profess to be Christian while professing and practicing sins stated in the Bible that God calls abominations. An individual cannot defy the Bible and still be a believer in the Biblical teachings. It cannot be done.
Just as those who openly defy the teachings of the Bible cannot call themselves a believer in the Bible, those who openly defy our basic American values of individualism, limited government, and rule of law, cannot declare themselves to be Americans. These same people are not only promoting the evils of collectivism, but they are also proclaiming the ideology of Islam to be a peaceful and a supportive practice of American values. Islam, like collectivism, believes in total conformity to their ideology and all who do not conform must be segregated and eliminated. We have seen Collectivism and Islam join forces in the past to absolve the world of individualists and Bible believers.
The goal of Islam is also to use whatever means they must to reach their ultimate goal of world domination. The Muslim is directed to, “Slaughter those who believe not in Allah nor the last day nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and his apostle.”
The American left also has told the United States that we must be welcoming to the Islamic Jihadists. The American Left has told us that we must make them a part of our society. In every civilization to which the Muslims became a part, they have eventually plundered them, massacred many and enslaved and subjugated the remainder. This is their goal. This is what they are commanded to do. They are not commanded to live in peace and assimilate. “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, never will it be accepted of him.”
It is mandatory for a Muslim to adhere to Islamic laws and not to any other law like the US Constitution. A Muslim can never be both a Muslim and an American at the same time. Sharia law to the Muslim is the only law. Total conformity to it by Muslims is demanded and it is death or total humiliation to any, Muslim or not, that do not conform.
The American left supports two ideologies that demand total conformity to an idea that is the antithesis of American values. America was founded on the basis of free and open thought for all. The American left supports two ideologies that demand rule from a central source and death or subjugation to any who would not conform. The American left supports two ideologies that despise the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution including the Bill of Rights, and the Bible. The American left supports everything despised by our founders. Those who would support big tyrannical government and conformity are not Americans. The American left is not American.
Man would like the Bible to mean what they want it to mean. Many people who prefer to practice sin, twist the word of God. This is unfortunate for them. Romans 6:23 states that” the wages of sin is death.” No matter how we rationalize sin in our own minds, it does not change what the Bible clearly states.
The Bible is the inspired word of God.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. (2Timothy 3:16-17)
“For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” (2Peter 1:21)
The Bible says that God does not change.
Malachi 3:6 “For I, the Lord, do not change.”
Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
In todays sophisticated and accepting world, we are told by many who would call themselves Christians, which implies they believe the Bible in its entirety, that sexual interaction between two people of the same sex is acceptable because it is an expression of love and God is love. The part they have correct is that God is love, but God is also a righteous God and will not tolerate sin. Does the Bible say that to be a participating member of the LGBT community you are committing a sin and are destined to be separated from God for eternity?
Leviticus 18:22 “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”
1 Corinthians 6:9 “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites.”
Jude 1:7 “as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”
It is also a part of the “woke” ideology to express our support for, and agreement with those who are expressing their “love” in this non-Biblical way. People who would say that they as a Christian must show love and not judgement. The Bible also speaks about this practice.
Ezekiel 3:18 “When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand.”
When we say we are acting in love and not judgement and do not say to the practicing LGBT person that what they are doing leads to eternal death, their blood is on our hands.
Ezekiel 3:19 “Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.”
If we show real concern and love for the practicing LGBT person and tell them what the Bible says about their sin, we have done what God says we must, that is show real love, and we will not have their blood on our hands.
Satan is a deceitful person. Satan will do whatever is necessary to lead people to eternal domination. Satan wants as many as possible to spend eternity in Hell with him. When you have a question about what is or is not sin, what you should or should not do about it, refrain from looking to the woke crowd for the answer, but open your Bible and search for what God has to say.
The principles upon which the United States was founded are despised by the left. They attack these principles of individualism, that rights and liberties come from God and not government, and that we are a republic and not a democracy unceasingly. It is beyond question that the American left will do anything and everything to complete the transformation they have promised to transform the United States of America to a Marxist totalitarian state.
A key element of that transformation is that our government is no longer under the control of the people, or our elected officials, but to have what all Marxist tyrannical states do, and that is to have all control of the nation in the control of the bureaucrats, experts, and technocrats. This is exactly what President Trump was fighting and attempting to change.
Here is just another example of the left erasing American traditions and history to fit their distorted and misguided narrative that we are a racist and a misogynist society. This was in the Federalist.
National Archives Slaps ‘Harmful Content’ Warning On Constitution, All Other Founding Documents
September 8, 2021, By Haley Strack
The National Archives Records Administration placed a “harmful content” warning on the Constitution, labeling the governing document of the United States as “harmful or difficult to view.” The warning applies to all documents across the Archives’ cataloged website, including the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence.
“NARA’s records span the history of the United States, and it is our charge to preserve and make available these historical records,” the administration said in a statement. “As a result, some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions. In addition, some of the materials may relate to violent or graphic events and are preserved for their historical significance.”
The NARA, which is responsible for preserving and protecting documentation of American heritage, noted that so-called harmful historical documents could “reflect racist, sexist, ableist, misogynistic/misogynoir, and xenophobic opinions and attitudes; be discriminatory towards or exclude diverse views on sexuality, gender, religion, and more,” and “include graphic content of historical events such as violent death, medical procedures, crime, wars/terrorist acts, natural disasters and more.”
Along with committing to diversity and equity, the NARA said it would “[work] in conjunction with diverse communities, [and] seek to balance the preservation of this history with sensitivity to how these materials are presented to and perceived by users.”
Samuel Adams told the colonists, “It is high time the people of this country explicitly declare if they will be free or slaves.” It is high time the people today make the same declaration. The Democrats, with the help of RINO’s are declaring that the United States must become a Marxist totalitarian state. The Democrats, with the help of RINO’s, are explicitly declaring that we should be slaves to the dictates and tyranny of government.
For the signers of the Declaration of Independence, “liberty” is the universal notion that every person should determine their own path to happiness free from undue government control. The Declaration of Independence states directly that all rights and liberties come from God. That means that our rights and liberties do not come from government. The Declaration of Independence also states that these rights and liberties are endowed rights and liberties. That means that our rights and liberties cannot be taken from us.
In order to have our Constitution ratified, we the people insisted that some of these rights and liberties be specifically named and protected. The First Amendment says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
The Ninth Amendment says, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” Our rights and liberties extend well beyond those stated in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights per this amendment. The essence is that government does not have the power to infringe in any way on our rights and liberties.
This is the essence of the philosophy of Individualism. Each individual is not only free to, but required to make their own decisions and then be responsible for the consequences of those decisions. Each individual is free from any government restraints so long as that individual does not infringe on the rights and liberties of another. I have a right to free speech.

You are not responsible for my happiness or my wellbeing. I am not responsible for your happiness or wellbeing. If I make mistakes, it is my responsibility to correct those mistakes. It is not my responsibility to correct your mistakes. This is why James Madison said, “No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”
Our nation was founded on the principle of Individualism. Individualism is the social theory favoring freedom of action for individuals over collective or state control. Each individual has the freedom to make their own decisions and they then are responsible for the consequences of those decisions. Individualism is mandatory if a nation is to be a free state.
The other philosophy is the philosophy of collectivism. Collectivism is the essence of Marxism, communism, socialism, progressives, and the Democrats in the United States today. Collectivist cultures emphasize the needs and goals of the group as a whole over the needs and desires of each individual. Individuals are not responsible for the consequences of their decisions, but the group is. This is why Hillary told us it takes a village to raise a child. The group is responsible for raising the child and teaching the child values, not the parents. This is why Obama said that you did not build that business, but the community built the business, and any success must be shared equally with the community. This is why collectivists (Democrats with assistance from RINO’s) advocate for a steeply progressive income tax and a wide variety of other taxes along with a massive welfare state. They practice what Karl Marx said, “From each according to their ability to each according to their need.”
The collectivist mind set always results in tyranny. The collectivist mind set demands conforming thought and economic equality among the masses from birth to death. The collectivist mind set cannot prevail when people are encouraged and enabled to be free and independent thinkers. All people must conform to the doctrine of the collectivist ruling class or they must be eliminated.
Because of the belief in individual thought and freedom, individualism is mandatory for a free society. The United States was the first nation to be founded on individualist principles. The American experiment proved to be extremely successful. A society where people were free from the dictates of government controls proved the fallacy of collectivism.
Despite this success, the thirst for power of some and the egos of the academics could not accept that the individual could make better decisions for themselves than could the powerful and the academics. It is the collectivists’ purpose to control the people once again, which means to make them slaves to government. The collectivists gained control of the Democrat party. It has been the purpose of the Democrat party for the last 100+ years to end individualism in the United States and impose the limitations of collectivism upon we the people.
If you support liberty, you will never support the Democrat party in any form. If you support tyranny, you will give the Democrat party your full and total support.
