What is abundantly clear is that civics and government, for that matter even civility, is no longer taught in our public schools and many of those to whom it might have been taught years ago have forgotten the lessons.
First, the United States was not a democracy at its beginning, was never intended to be a democracy, and was specifically and purposefully formed to be a republic. The reason for this choice was because those who designed our country understood, from history, that democracies quickly become autocratic, and they wanted to protect the Natural Rights for all specifically protecting them for the minority from the tyranny of the majority.
The legislative branch of government was designed to be the most powerful branch of government, not an equal branch of government, because it was the closest to the people. All laws must originate in the legislative branch and the legislative branch had the “power of the purse.” However, even the legislative branch was restricted stating the only legislative authority it was supposed to have was in regard to the specific powers we the people enumerated as the powers of the federal government in the United States Constitution. Any power not enumerated was off limits to even the legislative branch.
The Natural Rights, not just those outlined in the founding documents, were rights given to the individual by the Creator, God, and government had no control over them in any form or fashion. The responsibility of government was to protect those rights for the people. The founders were of the generation that let their yes be yes and their no be no, so when they stated that the government was to pass no law establishing a religion or the practice of religion it meant “no” law.
When we are told government cannot abridge speech, it meant that government cannot limit what people say or what they think. Yes, even stupidity can be expressed freely as we hear so often. Stupidity that runs rampant on television and social media is protected. So, when Mika and Joe express their foolish and unfounded accusations, their opinions are protected even one as simple minded as when Mika Brzezinski stated, “You have to ask the question, Joe, and I’ll ask you. Isn’t it OK to deduce that at this point this is what he wants? He is inciting hatred, inciting violence, inciting racism. If he doesn’t unequivocally call it off and say, this is wrong and we stand together against this and we are doing this, this and this to help fight hate crimes — I mean, this is a president who seems to want these things to happen. How else can this be explained if he doesn’t call it off?”
The founders understood that the risk of restricting speech, even speech like the above by Mika, must be not only tolerated but protected because the slippery slope of abridging is steep. It is in democracies that become autocratic where the majority determines certain speech is hate speech and possibly hurts the feelings of some so it must be abridged. Hate speech quickly becomes any speech that does not promote the political agenda of the then most vocal.
Any civics or government class teaching our founding, assuming it is based on accurate history, will teach that our founders understood that government, although necessary, must be limited and controlled. “Our founders understood when creating our government, that government, any government, is the single biggest threat to the freedoms they had just won.” Don Jans
These lessons have been forgotten or where never taught and learned. History teaches us that either we adhere to these principles if we wish to remain free and keep our liberties, or we acquiesce to the simple knee jerk reactions called for by ambitious politicians of today and get on the sled perched at the top of the slippery slope that quickly takes us to the land of an autocratic and tyrannical government that says no law means any law and abridge can mean anything we want it to mean.
There have been times of anguish and contention throughout our history. We have the advantage of learning from those who have navigated through difficult times and have passed on to us the wisdom they gained. Yet, we tend to ignore that wisdom and believe we have greater insight than do those who were successful, and so we struggle. It is time we; the American people listen to the wise and not the politically ambitious who would use the sufferings of others for their own gain.
Our generation more than any other in American history has determined that our role as parents, if we even exercise that role by being present in our children’s lives, is to give them toys and gadgets to show our neighbors just how successful we are as opposed to determining if the toys and gadgets are important in the development of the child to be a responsible individual with a strong character. Wiser people have told us our true responsibility is to give our children our time and direction, teaching them solid principles and not abdicating that responsibility to the schools or government.
It is the duty of parents to maintain their children decently, and according to their circumstances; to protect them according to the dictates of prudence; and to educate them according to the suggestions of a judicious and zealous regard for their usefulness, their respectability and happiness. James Wilson
We were instructed to be aware of the character of those we elect to represent us. The type of individual we choose to represent us reflects the character of the electorate, therefore always choose those who will put duty above self, who understand to profit from their position is immoral and is the result of weak character, and that to mislead or misrepresent for the purpose of gain is reprehensible.
If men of wisdom and knowledge, of moderation and temperance, of patience, fortitude and perseverance, of sobriety and true republican simplicity of manners, of zeal for the honour of the Supreme Being and the welfare of the commonwealth; if men possessed of these other excellent qualities are chosen to fill the seats of government, we may expect that our affairs will rest on a solid and permanent foundation. Samuel Adam
In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate — look to his character.... Noah Webster
It is certainly true that a popular government cannot flourish without virtue in the people. Richard Henry Lee
We were warned that liberty, although secured now, can just as quickly be taken from us. If we fail to heed the directions to always be vigilant in our own conduct as well as electing those who exhibit that same sense of duty to virtuous service and not self-serving or opportunistic service, our liberty could prevail.
Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them. Joseph Story
The American war is over; but this far from being the case with the American revolution. On the contrary, nothing but the first act of the drama is closed. It remains yet to establish and perfect our new forms of government, and to prepare the principles, morals, and manners of our citizens for these forms of government after they are established and brought to perfection. Benjamin Rush
For liberty to prevail, we must heed the advice of those who won our liberty. We must turn our back on those who show weak character by making false promises, false claims, claiming simple solutions to complex problems – solutions that abridge our liberties as opposed to enhancing our liberties, and demonize others simply because they disagree with their political position. These are the strategies of demagogues who have as their goal to deceive the masses for their own glory, power, and wealth. To understand who these deceivers are, take note of those who, even before knowing facts or circumstances, profess simple solutions for notoriety and political gain, and demonize their political opponents for the same purposes.
The blood is still is still present, the families are still in shock, and the perpetrator's motives are unknown, but the politician has the answer for the tragedy, and that answer is to quickly enact an action that supports his road to election. In today's instant news and bumper sticker mentality, the ambitious politician understands that it is not the substance of their response but how quickly it is made and how outlandish it is that will get them the headlines they desire.
The ambitious politician and irresponsible news outlets and pundits understand that instant responses, regardless of content or validity, will help them achieve their ultimate goal; name recognition. Consequently, meaningless bumper sticker comments are spread to the masses who form an instant opinion and move on with their lives, filing their reaction in their minds for later use and disregarding whether or not the opinion has any validity.
When, in days or weeks, facts are revealed that completely disparage the bumper sticker comments, the ambitious politician and aspiring news outlet and pundit will either issue a short, never to be heard retraction, or will completely ignore their ignorant initial statement. This is our political and news outlet landscape of today.
Both the ambitious politician and aspiring news outlets and pundits know the short memories of the public. They understand that after the facts have been revealed, the public has moved on and consequently they can avoid what should be their goal; getting to the root cause of the problem and not the immediate reaction that brings the headlines.
Ambitious politicians and aspiring and irresponsible news outlets and pundits have always been a part of any society. What we must quickly learn is that ambitious politicians and irresponsible news outlets and pundits are not the root cause of the ills of society, but they are perpetuators of all that is evil. The root cause of evil always lies with the masses, people who turn their heads and say what is, always was, and always will be. This is false. What history teaches us is that a society where the masses or people take a sincere interest, they read, they study, they learn, they become involved; these people can change the evil core growing within their midst.
If just one individual will take a sincere interest in the fallacies being sung by the ambitious politician and irresponsible news outlets and pundits, and that individual makes the effort to discuss, not argue or debate, with their family, friends, and acquaintances, seeds will be planted of the necessity of more people to take a sincere interest. Remember, questions that cause the other person to think, wonder, and hopefully do some research are far more valuable than dogmatic statements.
We the people, can never shirk our responsibility that is critical if we are to remain a free people with our government protecting our liberties and rights and not controlling and eliminating those liberties and rights. We must remember that politicians and news sources reflect the electorate and people. When we abdicate our responsibility of being concerned citizens and accept the bumper sticker and immediate responses by the ambitious politician and irresponsible aspiring news outlets and pundits, we have abdicated our right to liberty and rights and have acquiesced to be servants and slaves to the ambitions of that politician.
The country we have, the liberties we have, the evil that does or does not exist within a society is always determined by the people. History proves that an informed, involved, and knowledgeable people will have a more peaceful and harmonious society than does an uninformed, uninvolved, and unaware society. Yes, once again the choice is ours.
Within our society there is greater and greater unrest. This unrest has been escalating for many years. Those who have promoted the unrest claim that the ability of a citizen to own a gun is at the heart of this unrest. However, what we know is that societies have existed where gun ownership is allowed and, in some cases, encouraged and societies have existed where gun ownership was denied. In both situations violence and irrational attacks have taken place. Guns was not the constant. What the constant was, was people.
Those of you who have read my writings, my books, and perhaps have heard me speak, know that I am a believer in history. I have studied history. As a side note, my eldest granddaughter is learning to enjoy history. She became interested in the life of Mary Queen of Scots, (yes Papa had something to do with it) and has learned that history is just a novel, only dealing with real people and happenings. The interactions between individuals, families, small groups, and large groups or national societies , and hundreds and thousands of years ago is the same as that of today. Of course, today we are able to get news much quicker and we are able to be in different parts of the world much quicker, but people have not changed. The lesson is that we can learn the future by studying history.
Let’s narrow this study to the last 250 years and confine it to the society we call the United States. We must begin with the founding of the United States and understand, through the objective study of history, that the events that led to the independence of the American Colonists and then their insight in forming a new nation was truly unique. The United States was the first nation founded on the principles of Natural Rights and Natural Law. These principles put government in the third position with the Creator as number one and the people as number two on the sovereignty scale. In previous situations the role of government and the people had been reversed and often government was even placed as number one on the sovereignty scale.
What the United States idea really meant in everyday life was that people had liberties that were free from government control. People were now not only free to, but they were encouraged to, strive to reach the limits of their abilities and then to stretch those limits. Thomas Jefferson most profoundly stated this idea when he added “pursuit of happiness” to the other Natural Rights enunciated of life, and liberty. People were no longer restricted to the limits of government or the collective who prior to the United States had placed limits on individuals on criteria such as position at birth (for instance nobility or commoner), conformity to the ideas and dictates of the government or collective, and special likes or dislikes of the government official (both socially and romantically).
This unique concept, placing government in the number three position of sovereignty, meant that the people who believed society was best when government officials or the elite where in control of the lives and thoughts of the people vehemently disagreed with this concept. This is not new to history but this type of a transformation of societies has occurred before. Remember, history teaches us that political positions and ideas within any society are never stagnant, but are always being challenged and changed. The elite forces, those of the two extremes of liberty and tyranny have remained constant but the masses have swung from side to side, and often quickly and radically. An excellent example of how quickly the masses can change is the change in the attitude of the masses towards Jesus. On Sunday they cheered Jesus and hailed him as their King. By Thursday evening and Friday morning they were calling for his death. Those who hated and despised Jesus because he challenged them, remained the same. Jesus did not change. It was the masses that changed.
Those who despise individual freedom, freedom from the dictates of the government and collective, have been prevalent within the United States from before the Revolutionary War. They were referred to then as loyalists or Tories. These collectivists of today (Marxist, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) continue to demand that individual freedoms be limited, and often eliminated, by government or the collective. George Soros said it this way, “An open society is a society which allows its members the greatest possible degree of freedom in pursuing their interests compatible with the interests of others.”
This is what has changed in the United States. This collectivist idea as stated by George Soros and put forth by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in the middle to late 19th century is openly being proclaimed in the United States today. This is a philosophy in direct contrast to our founding. This philosophy of Soros, Marx, and Engels calls for the destruction of a society that is built on individual freedom and expression so their desired society of control of the individual over their life and thoughts can be accomplished. A study of how they propose to do this is a study of history in how it has been attempted throughout the ages.
All who believe in government or collective control, view the family unit as a threat to their goals. The reason is simple. A society built with strong families as their base is a diverse society with people who have respect for others and others property. The collective insists on total conformity of thought and expression by all and insists that property is to not be regarded as the property of the individual but the property of the government or the collective.
Marx said that to accomplish this transition to this collectivist society, all long-standing principles, all morality, and all religion must be abolished. The principles of our nation when founded must be declared to be antiquated and no longer workable, morality must be judged not on right or wrong as Locke said it should be in his theory of Natural Law, but on whether or not the action moves us down the road to communism or not as stated by Lenin, and the new society must be an atheist society which is in direct contrast of the beliefs upon which our nation was founded.
This collective extreme is not new. It has existed for ages. What has changed in the United States is that the masses are changing. More and more of the masses are believing that the family unit is outdated, that our founding principles are antiquated, that morality is strictly individual, and that the Creator is simply fiction.
Our society has always had guns. That is constant. What has changed is the masses and their indoctrination in the beliefs set forth by the collectivists (Marxist, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) that the rights of the individual must always be secondary to the dictates of the government or the collective. Societies that have transitioned to this philosophy have always become violent. Yes, what has changed is not the ownership of guns, but what has changed is the acceptance and encouragement of violence to bring about a fundamental transformation of our society from a society with God as the sovereign, then man, and then government as opposed to government as the sovereign, then man, and God is completely eliminated, per Marx. A major part of this transformation is the destruction of the family unit.
We who believe in the principles upon which our nation was founded, those principles which made our nation “that shining city on the hill” must understand that history teaches us that movements can be changed and reversed. Sam Adams understood this concept as the masses ebbed and flowed in the 1760’s and 1770’s. He said then and it is just as applicable or perhaps even more applicable now on how to move the masses toward liberty, “It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”
Will you become a part of this irate, tireless minority??
The pundits are telling us who the big winners and the big losers were after the two nights the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) told us how collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) is the road the United States should travel. This is the same road Karl Marx explained would lead to a classless society that would be totally conforming and totally equal. Marx also said, as do the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats), that this is the road to a utopian society where total harmony exists. This road has been traveled by many different societies and countries and it has failed miserably every time it is tried. The society or country always suffers from a total financial collapse which brings about a total social collapse. This is always what happens and based on the policies it can do nothing different.
There were no winners because there can be no winners when everything you propose leads to poverty for all but the government elite, a crime infested society, hyperinflation and financial failure, and a society of despair, devastation, and hopelessness. Again, this is a statement based on history and facts.
The huge loser would be the principles found in our Founding Documents, the same principles upon which our nation was founded. These principles explicitly stated that a limited government is critical for freedom and liberty and these principles stated that the individual must be free to pursue their dreams and reap the rewards of those dreams. These principles stressed that individuals must be allowed to be individuals who are responsible for their own decisions and the consequences thereof. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are claiming just the opposite.
What we heard is that every adult must be supported with $1000 per month and this will solve all ills. We were told that if the government supports the individual financially, the individual will then strive to work and be a positive citizen contributing to the overall success of the collective. This is what Marx said, Lenin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Chavez, and others tried. We know the results.
We were told that because students could go to the government and receive unlimited loans in their quest for many times meaningless college degrees, and in this quest they only had to ask without proving any indication of repayment, that the ultimate responsibility for these loans should now fall on the shoulders of hard working responsible American citizens.
We were told that those who would willfully violate our laws and our borders, those who would claim their sovereignty over the sovereignty of the American people, are entitled to receive, again from the pockets of hard working Americans, all their needs and even luxuries that somehow they are entitled to receive.
We are led to believe that any American who believes in the principles of the Founding Documents, the very principles upon which our nation was founded are racists, homophobes, islamophobes, sexists, and any other demeaning and demonic term one could conjure, because of those beliefs.
We are told that liberty of the individual must be limited and subjected to the will of the collective or the state.
We were told that the fruits of our labor, in the form of income, is not ours but belongs to the state and as the property of the state, the state has the right to tell us how much of what we earned for the state we can keep for ourselves. If we disagree with this un-American philosophy, we are as Marx said and echoed by his followers, greedy.
The biggest loser is liberty. The biggest loser is what is known as the American dream. The biggest loser is the principle of individualism, the philosophy upon which our nation was founded and flourished. The biggest loser is the American citizen who values the natural rights endowed upon them by their Creator, the right to life, liberty, and property or the pursuit of happiness. The biggest loser is you.
There was a day when a Democrat openly stated and was applauded when he stated, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” This statement is roundly rebuked by those who would refer to themselves as Democrats today. Not only is this statement roundly rebuked but another similar statement such as, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for yourself,” is also roundly denounced.
The mantra of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party goes to the very heart of the evil that is collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) and that is to not just ask what my country can give me but I demand my country fulfill all my needs and wants. The strength of America is that our government was to be a limited government with two primary functions: to protect the natural rights given to each individual by our Creator and to protect the citizens from both foreign and domestic enemies. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party today says that the role of government must be the dominating, dictatorial force with power over the individual’s life and thoughts. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party claims it is the role of government to dictate who lives and who does not, what liberty each has and how much of that liberty they have, and what the desires and ambitions of the individual should be and the limits government should place on those desires and limits.
The direction the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party would have us take would be to fully embrace “The Road to Tyranny.” If you have not read my book, I strongly urge you to get it and read it. The strategies and policies being proposed today by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are the exact strategies needed to reach their desired goal of fundamentally transforming the United States into a Marxist tyrannical nation.
Shortly I will be releasing “Two Visions of America.” We are hearing one of the visions being enunciated by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats), Learn what the visions are, how the vision upon which our country was founded and flourished came about and what it is. Learn what the inevitable results of both visions are. Yes, we already know the results.
If we who love freedom and independence wish to live in a county that advances life, liberty, and property or the pursuit of happiness, then we must totally understand the strategies and beliefs of those who despise what we cherish. Our founders made their choice because they understood the strategies and beliefs of those who despised what they cherished. Let us not lose what we cherish because we will not take the time and make the effort to equip ourselves to be as Sam Adams said, “a tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”
Karl Marx said the essence of fairness and equality is his classless society, the same social and economic policies the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party candidates said we should put into full affect because they will bring fairness and prosperity to the United States as we heard last night in the “I can spend more than you can” irresponsible so called debate last night, is “from each according to his abilities to each according to his needs.” Take from the producer and give to the taker has always been a formula that brings financial and social collapse to any society that employs this ridiculous concept.
Those who advocate for this “socially just” and “fair” idea, can not give even one example of where this concept has produced an economically and socially strong society. Having not one example that substantiates their claims, these collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) resort to the concept that those who practiced this failed ideal in the past did not do it the right way. We are told now that if we call this movement Democratic Socialism it will bring about a fair and just classless society that will prosper. The same formula failed when it was called Menshevik Socialism, Bolshevik Socialism, National Socialism, or any other modifier placed before the failed formula of Socialism.
It cannot succeed for two reasons: the first is it promotes destruction that is contrary to human nature, and two, the arithmetic brings about negative numbers that prohibit growth, innovation, entrepreneurship, and prosperity. Marx, for all his faults, understood the math and embraced the math stating that economic growth should never exceed the growth of the population because the excess would lead to innovation, growth, and prosperity which once again brings about an unfair, an unjust, and an unequal society.
An example of how this concentration on so called fairness and equality is in the short run and long run detrimental and destructive to the financial and social well being is the claim by the Women’s National Soccer Team that they should be paid the same as the men. The Women have been more successful from a competitive standpoint than the men given the success of the Women in the World Cup competition. Nevertheless, the women are advocating that the failed formula of Marx should apply; “from each according to their ability to each according to their need.” Both Marx and the advocates for this socialist formula forget that 1 + 1 = 2 no matter what modifier we place in front of the formula.
This is what the numbers reveal for the Soccer association:
"From 2009 through 2019—a timeframe that includes two Women's World Cup championships—the Women's National Team has earned gross revenue of $101.3 million over 238 games, for an average of $425,446 per game and the Men's National Team has earned gross revenue of $185.7 million over 191 games, for an average of $972,147 per game. More specifically, WNT games have generated a net profit (ticket revenues minus event expenses) in only two years (2016 and 2017). Across the entire 11-year period, WNT games generated a net loss of $27.5 million."
What the Marx’s advocates are saying is that they deserve more even though by paying them more the loss would be even larger. This is what the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party, and many in the Republican establishment like Ryan and McCarthy, have been claiming, the larger the deficit the more “socially just” and “fair” is society.
The problem with this is that history shows this to be a failed formula. What this formula produces is more and more poverty, a lower and lower living standard for all but the politically elite, more and more crime, and less and less hope. The formula is designed to destroy and not to build. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) argument, as we heard last night, is to destroy and not to build. Marx said the current society must be completely destroyed so this never to be achieved classless society that is “socially just’” “totally conforming,” and “totally equal” can be built.
Collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) have never been convicted of their lack of truth telling throughout history.
Some of the more famous lies we have heard from collectivists:
The classless society will be a society that will live in unity and harmony.
We are for the people.
Taking from some to give to others will bring prosperity.
Food stamps have a multiplier effect.
You can keep your doctor if you like your doctor, you can keep your plan if you like your plan.
Anybody who would disagree with our policies is a racist and a demagogue.
These lies were and continue to be told to bring about a desired result and are a part of a bigger plan to bring about the desired result of all people, other than the political elites, living in total subservience, in a conforming and equal state, to the sovereign government.
This is what collectivists were told to do bring about this subservient society.
“It is not truth that matters, but victory.”
“The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.”
“I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few.”
“But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.”
“If you wish the sympathy of the broad masses, you must tell them the crudest and most stupid things.”
“No amount of genius spent on the creation of propaganda will lead to success if a fundamental principle is not forever kept in mind. Propaganda must confine itself to very few points and repeat them endlessly. Here, as with so many things in this world, persistence is the first and foremost condition of success.”
“Only constant repetition will finally succeed in imprinting an idea on the memory of the crowd.”
“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
“The great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.”
“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
“Great liars are also great magicians.”
These are principles that have been employed by collectivists for decades, perhaps centuries, and they are being employed by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party of today, specifically against President Trump. All these quotes on how to have an effective propaganda campaign are quotes from one of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) fellow collectivists, Adolf Hitler.
The United States fought a civil war over 150 years ago. That civil war had at the heart of it, slavery. The civil war we are in today also has at the heart of it, slavery. The first civil war we fought was about the right of one individual to be owned or enslaved by another. The current civil war is about the right of an individual to live their own lives and have their own thoughts as opposed to the government determining how everyone is to live their lives and what their thoughts are to be.
The United States was founded on the principle of individualism. Individualism is a philosophy that adheres to the basics of the Declaration of Independence that stated we each have a natural right to life, liberty, and property, or as Jefferson said the pursuit of happiness. These rights are endowed to us by the Creator; thus, the Creator is sovereign. Under the philosophy of individualism, the role of government must be limited with the primary role of protector; protector of those natural rights so they are not infringed by government or others and protector of the population from enemies of the nation, both foreign and domestic.
The opposing force in this civil war is the philosophy of Collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrats- all virtually the same). This force believes that government is the supreme sovereign. As supreme sovereign it becomes the role of government to run the lives of the people and dictate what their thoughts are to be. This philosophy has always held that individualism is a selfish and greedy idea where people strive to exceed the limits the collectivist believes should be heeded. The collectivist believes that the role of government is to insure total conformity and total equality within the society. The collectivist has maintained a destructive mantra believing that all aspects of individualism must be destroyed including the critical unit of strong families where children’s belief systems reflect the beliefs of the parents and churches and not the schools.
It is these two forces that are clashing in the United States today. President Trump is at the very heart of this war. President Trump became the nominee of the individualist faction with assistance from the collectivist press. They were sure he would lose to their very weak candidate, Hillary Clinton. Something happened on the way to the Forum and the worst possible event happened to the collectivist movement; Donald Trump became president.
Donald Trump is not a politician and had not been schooled in the ways of what we individualists call the Washington Swamp where people adhere to the traditions that have become the swamp of speaking in politically correct terms and not revealing the corruption and collusion within the swamp. The collectivist movement is becoming unhinged as more and more their corruption and collusion is being revealed by this outsider. As collectivists always, do, they will do anything to protect what they believe to be their territory and their gains.
One of the main gains the collectivist has made is to bring about a huge welfare state that is at the heart of the evils of collectivism. Welfare states are designed to destroy the family unit, allow children to be indoctrinated in the ways of collectivism in the schools. It brings about poverty which enslaves people to the government, it brings about conformity and equality of the people while allowing the government elite to become extremely wealthy, it destroys innovation and entrepreneurship of private individuals, and it equates natural rights and entitlements to be the same. This brings about the goal of the collectivist which is to collapse society by destroying the moral fabric and the financial stability of the society that was created by the individualist movement.
President Trump has exposed all that is taking place when he revealed the results of the collectivist movement in Baltimore and San Francisco., while exposing the hypocrisy and failures of Elijah Cummings and Nancy Pelosi. This is the same result we see in Seattle, Los Angeles, Detroit, New York, Chicago, and all cities and areas that have been under collectivist government. It is the only end that can occur.
The collectivist defense is the only defense they can muster; Trump is a racist. In the language of the swamp, anybody who reveals the true results of the collectivist movement is a racist. How else do you defend your actions when your intent is to bring about the destruction of the society. Of course, you promise that what you will rebuild will be utopia, but you have nothing other than theory to support your claim. Collectivism has always failed. It does not matter what adjective you use to modify it. It must fail because it is in opposition to the nature our Creator placed in us as individuals.
Regardless of your skin color, your sex, your religion, or your ethnicity, if you believe in the basis upon which our nation was founded, individualism, and oppose that philosophy that is advancing the civil war we are now facing, collectivism, you are a racist according to the language of the swamp. President Trump understands this, but President Trump also understands that it is critical for the future of the United States as a free and independent people, we must stand against the EVIL and DESTRUCTIVE forces of collectivism.
Oh yes, Jerry Nadler, Adam, Schiff, and Elijah Cummings will continue to think they are relevant while wasting precious resources including time. What these three have accomplished in a mere 18 months is to render what was intended to be the most influential branch of government, yes even more so than the Senate, the president, and the courts, is now the laughingstock of the American people. All except the most ardent haters of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights, pay absolutely no attention to anything these three haters and highly partisan member of the swamp do or say. Cummings especially continues his hypocritical tirades while his wife continues to thumb her nose at the laws of our land.
While these three, along with the squad continue with their damaging hatred of all that is freedom and liberty, the country continues to face three major problems that continue to threaten what was intended to be the King, Emperor, or Czar of the United States; that is Rule of Law.
Congress continues to ignore the threat to our nation on our southern border. Yes, it is a threat to our sovereignty. Open borders have proven to be the Achilles heel for nations who are members of the European Union. The requirement of the EU to allow any and all to come and go are bringing financial ruin and social chaos to many nations in Europe including Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, France, Germany, and more. Those EU nations who recognize this crisis such as Poland, Hungary, Italy, and others are being demonized by the collectivist forces in the EU. It is evident that this same crisis faces the United States and yet the collectivist forces within our country do not only ignore it but encourage it. They openly call for open borders encouraging criminals and terrorists of all sorts to come and fulfil the goals of the collectivist; that is to fundamentally transform, per Comrade Obama, the United States into a Marxist totalitarian state. Marx said for this to happen the current social order must be destroyed so the new collectivist social order could be built. The sad thing is, only congress can fix this threat to our freedom and liberty.
Congress continues to ignore the threat to our nation of an out of control spending problem. Nadler, Schiff, Cummings, and the rest, including the Republican establishment continue to kick this can down the road. The collectivist solution, one that has always failed, is to continue to take assets from the innovator and builder and transfer it to the taker. This solution always brings about collapse, because economically it can only end in financial collapse. When financial collapse occurs, social collapse follows. The sad thing is, only congress can fix this treat to our freedom and liberty.
A crisis that is not addressed very often but is perhaps the biggest threat to our freedom and liberty is the abusive power grab of the judicial branch. The intent of the founders was that the judicial branch of government would be the weakest branch of the three, and yet we were warned by many of the founders that the biggest threat for abuse of power and the breakdown of the rule of law, was the judicial branch. The only power the constitution gives to the judicial branch is to render an opinion. The judicial branch was given no legislative power and they were given no administrative power. They are obligated to give opinions based on the laws as written, always adhering to the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Today we have federal district judges rendering rulings or opinions that are in direct opposition to the Constitution and the laws. These judges are rendering their opinions based on their political viewpoints and what they call intent as opposed to adherence to law. It is our judicial system that is destroying our King, Emperor, or Czar; that is Rule of Law. The sad thing is, only congress can fix this threat to our freedom and liberty.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
