The address by the President clearly showed the differences in the United States, not because of what he said but because of the reaction of those who despise the United States Constitution and the principles upon which our nation was built; individualism, rule of law, limited government, divided government, and sovereignty of the people. Yes, the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are vehemently opposed to freedom, independence, opportunity, and self-reliance. The vision the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have for the United States is collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, fascism, and progressivism.) The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) believe in collectivism, arbitrary law, big government, concentrated power, and sovereignty of the government.
When the President said, “My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans — to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream,” he stated what has become the great divide. The founders and the United States Constitution agree with the President. The Marxist/Progressives adamantly oppose that idea. They have proven that protection of the American people is not even on their priority list. They have proven this by their vehement opposition to control over who would enter our country. This is because they believe in the Marxist principle of elimination of all borders. This is also the goal of the collectivists in charge of the European Union who have become puppets of George Soros.
That this line was missed by pundits of both persuasions illustrates just how out of touch citizens of the Untied States have become with the founding principles that made the United States the envy of the world. The degree to which citizens are out of touch with our founding principles are a direct result of the control the collectivist movement has over our education system, which they have transformed into a system of indoctrination. Until we Freedom Loving Americans regain control of the system that purports to educate, but in fact indoctrinates, the overwhelming number of Americans will continue to misunderstand those principles upon which freedom, independence, and a self-reliance are reliant.
