In the Untied States, we the people still have a meaningful influence unlike the society the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) would have for us as exhibited in nations such as Venezuela, Cuba, and Iran where the voice of the citizen has no influence. That is today we have an influence, but we the people are succumbing to the call for us to abandon that fundamental principle that is required in a nation where true diversity, including diversity of thought, is championed and necessary.
A free press, that is a press that has as its primary goal to investigate and report and not to influence or manipulate the people to conform to an ideology, is also mandatory for freedom and independence where diversity of thought is championed. Our founders understood this principle and declared in the First Amendment that no law could be made that infringed on this principle.
The two protectors of freedom and independence, the people and the press, are failing in their role as a primary contributor to maintaining that freedom. The press has blatantly abandoned its role as an impartial investigator and reporter and instead has become the main voice for the overthrow of our Republic and for the installation of a Marxist totalitarian state as promulgated by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) political party. We see this in the headlines and stories in our news outlets everyday where meaningless headlines become the predominant discussion points. What a mindless starlet or celebrity says is treated as if it were important. A clearly biased reporter or author makes a prejudicial statement with nothing to corroborate it accept that they believe it to be true, becomes a headline and is treated as truth. When proven to be clearly false, no mention of the correction is made.
This type of reporting has become the norm and not the exception. This has happened because we the people have enabled this type of manipulation. A person can only be manipulated if they allow it to happen. As soon as individuals notice some inane comment by thoughtless starlets and celebrities or political manipulators, they profess it as truth and do no research. This is not the fault of the mindless starlet or celebrity nor is this the fault of the manipulative press, but it is the fault of the individual who accepts the false and misleading statement as fact and does not properly research.
Of course, this is easy and perhaps even entertaining because the individual can pontificate on these meaningless and diverting headlines. Yes, these tactics being employed are diverting the American people from discussing, in any meaningful way, the crucial problems facing our Republic and threatening the freedoms we claim to love and champion.
Some of these crucial problems are the promised and in process overthrow of our Republic. Comrade Obama promised this overthrow in the fall of 2008 and it is being implemented by the media and the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party. Other serious problems we face today include the predominantly ignored but threatening national debt that puts the Untied States in the same situation as many third world countries and posses what has been called the greatest threat to our national security. We also have a segment of our nation that promotes wholesale murder by encouraging the death of a certain class of individuals; unborn children. This is also a threat to our national security as it reduces our birth rate. Another immediate problem is our open border policy which Marx said was crucial for the successful implementation of his classless society.
Our federal government was formed to be a limited government. The government today is no longer limited but has usurped power granted to both the people and the states. Nevertheless, it is completely failing in one of the few key roles we the people reserved for the federal government and that is the protection of we the people from foreign threats and invaders. Today our southern border is an open border with declared enemies of the people of the United States, people with the sole intent of doing us harm, entering with the blessing of a certain element of our country, namely the element that wishes to end our Republic, the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats).
When we were formed, Benjamin Franklin was asked what kind of a government we had, and he responded with the famous remark of a Republic if you can keep it. Our founders believed a Republic was the best form of government to maintain the freedoms they had won for generations to come. They have been proven to be correct. We have also been told that the greatest threat to that freedom was not from without but from within. Today we are seeing that the statement is also proving to be correct.
Any American who believes in freedom and independence for all citizens has a choice to make. We must understand that evil exists and that evil dwells within the core of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and their minions dominating the mainstream media. We freedom loving people must discuss and bring to light the real problems facing us, those mentioned above. Even though it might be fun and entertaining to discus the nonsense of starlets and celebrities, we must realize our battle to maintain our Republic that champions freedom is not a game. Ignore the mindless headlines so predominant today and always turn discussions to the real problems facing our country. These real problems will not go away on their own. We must address them and attack them in a responsible manner and not in the flippant and irresponsible solutions put forth by those very elements that wish to eliminate our freedoms along with our Republic.
