Division is going to be our downfall.
My fellow Americans our country is not in a good place right now and it will not take much before it completely ceases to be the country that I knew, was taught about, and believed in as a child. I am not talking about just one aspect like economic, social, or political, but rather all of it as a whole.
Our forefathers intended to preserve our Constitutional Republic and everything it stands for, by putting things in place that would withstand the test of time as well as what they could not foresee in the future. Granted, there have been advancements achievements, and events since then, that nobody could have seen coming, but the principles still remain the same.
Contrary to popular belief the United States is not mob rule. I am reminded that Alexander Hamilton once called political parties "the most fatal disease" of popular governments. When the delegates to the Constitutional Convention gathered in Philadelphia they entirely omitted political parties from the new nation’s founding documents. This was no accident. The framers of the new Constitution desperately wanted to avoid the divisions that had ripped England apart in the 17th century.
Despite all the effort the first American political parties began to form while George Washington was still president So where are we today? Right back where we started, minus the actual war, but a revolutionary ware just the same. All it's going to take is one little incident and we will have another "shot heard around the world" so-to-speak. We have all heard the saying, "A house divided among itself cannot stand." and I think that is our greatest danger right now. And dare I say worse now amid the corona virus pandemic?
Our country has been reduced to "us" versus "them" no matter what side of isle you hale from. Too many have forgotten the unity we had as a country following the attack on Pearl Harbor and again on 9/11. Those were times when it didn't matter if someone was affiliated with the Democratic Party, Republican Party, Constitution Party, Libertarian Party, or even Green Party. There was no concern about who was Conservative, Liberal, Black, White, Jewish, Hispanic, Asian, Gay, Straight, Male, Female, Christian, Atheist, or whatever else divides us these days. The fact remains that there was a time we were all united into one party, "The American Party." We all we cared about "Our Country" that was attacked and "Our fellow Americans" that were killed by the hands of those who wanted to and in the case of 9/11 to this day still want to destroy us.
Now we are experiencing a world wide pandemic where abortion is considered "essential", but churches are not. Frankly we are poised to destroy this country ourselves, if this division is not set aside. We have to go back to being just Americans, and stand behind our president even if you didn’t vote for him or if you don’t agree with his policies. Believe it or not history is being forgotten and rewritten before our very eyes. Wake up people! The United States has given our sovereignty away to china and other countries. And we need to take it back!
One of the main reasons we won WW2 was that we manufactured goods. Do you think if we went to war with China now or any other country for that matter, they would send us the raw materials needed to built a defense against them? Too many schools and colleges are indoctrination centers not education centers. Students are no longer getting an education at the hands of some teachers and professors. Too many students are graduating as indoctrinated robots instead of educated individuals. Our God given right to protect ourselves and our families is being eroded before our very eyes. We need to eliminate “off limit” zones for guns so responsible legal carry individuals can protect themselves, their families, and possibly other innocent bystanders. I’m not gonna lie it’s a whole new country and Americans need to protect themselves like never before.
Plain and simple people criminals use off limit zones and buildings to their own advantage. And if you think I’m lying then you are sadly mistaken. We need to band together and take our country back now or it will be too late! The attack on Pearle Harbor and 9/11 did happen and Nay I say, sooner or later it will happen again in one form or another.” if we don’t unite and makes changes now.
For the first time in my lifetime Marshall law may be a reality. And why is that? Because people don’t care about their neighbors any more, morals have gone out the window, and now it’s a me, me, me, society. Frankly, there are people in our government today that hate America and everything it stands for. They will do anything they can to destroy our way of life and mold our country into something unrecognizable. If you don’t believe me, then elect a socialist or a communist and find out for yourself. The division in this country is going to be our downfall and the powers that be have us right where they want us.
Don’t get me wrong there are some good people in government, but they are very few and very far between. Like it or not I think Trump is doing his best with what he was dealt. It truly is a massive swamp in Washington D.C., and in cities, counties, and states all around the nation. We need to stand up for our God given, inalienable, personal rights and freedoms now and stop giving them away in the name of protection from an entity that doesn’t care about you, your family, or your life.
We need to come together as Americans again to save our nation. We need to band together like never before or we will loose this country and our world will never be the same. The American people should be able to stand in front of the entire congress with no absentees on their part allowed, and ask the real questions. And if they show disinterest or we don’t like their answer than they need to go. Ohh the list questions I already have is mounting.
Furthermore, we need to drill for our own oil. Refine our own gas. Manufacture our own goods. Forge our own steel. Cut our own trees. Make our own lumber.
We need to bring our troops home to secure our own borders. We need to worry about our own citizens. Our veterans. And our homeless population. If any elected official stands in our way as United Americans then they need to go and go now!
In 2017 Nancy Pelosi told Laura Wilkerson who’s son was slaughtered by an illegal that and I quote, “I pray for you.” Seriously Nancy do you really think we’re that stupid? I would bet that you didn’t and you never have prayed for anybody, but yourself. Furthermore, and I am willing to bet that Laura Wilkerson didn’t want prayer from you, she wanted answers and she wanted you to do your job to protect American citizens. Neither of which you have done to this day.
Congress should be paid a reasonable salary comparable to what rest of us have to live on. The American people need to exert what power we have left and do away with the envious retirement pension benefits that congress gets for life. Now retirement pay for Congress is not normally a big election-year issue and I get that, but it might serve as evidence of a disconnect between lawmakers and mainstream America.
Every politician on every level of government needs to live by the laws that they make for the rest of us and by that I mean every single law. Americans need to realize that Greta Thundberg and David Hogge, are nothing more than a puppets and certainly not a heroes. Despite all of this, I would rather live in the United States right now than anywhere else in the world. And the United States could be the greatest nation on earth again, but it has to start with us.
Listen, until the swamp is drained don’t expect a politician who has nothing to loose, has no accountability and lives on the backs of everyday working Americans to help. You need to realize that most of them simply don’t care about anything, but more power and more of our money. Start to pay attention, get to know your neighbors, get to know who lives around you. Find out who you can trust and who you can’t. Truly folks, we are now the first responders in our neighborhoods, our towns, or cities, our counties, and our country.
When I was a kid we knew who our neighbors were and we cared about them. We helped them and they helped us. The number of people who live somewhere for years, and don’t even know the name of the person who lives right next to them or across the street is staggering. And moreover, most people don’t care.
What used to be a criminal activity in this country is now seen as normal and that is a very, dangerous place to be. Honestly and much to my chagrin I believe, we are not leaving our children a better world then the one we inherited. Think about that…..We are not leaving our children a better world then then the one we inherited. Pretty scary isn’t it?
I do believe we are going to get through this pandemic, but we need to pull together, stop blaming each other and stop pointing fingers. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, because their are people like Debra Messing, Alyssa Milano, Kathy Griffith, Nancy Pelosi and Joy Behar who have already demonstrated that no matter what they will not band with anybody, but the ones who seek to destroy our country. Come on let’s face it…….there comes a time when you just can’t fix stupid. People like that just need to be left to their own devices and let natural selection take it’s course.
And in conclusion I have one more thing to say, May God Bless The U.S.A.
