America has just finished one of the most divisive political battles in modern history.
The last two weeks saw this country literally coming apart at the seams. In my 42 years of following politics, I have never seen the like.
Certainly there have been protests, even riots in the past, those of us who are products of the 60s’s can attest to that. It’s the basis of these demonstrations that make the situation different.
Previous to this while we may have disagreed, we respected the fact that the “loyal opposition” was in power and behaved accordingly.
There were no riots in the streets by Conservatives when Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan were appointed to the Court and the “Tea Party” was in full swing when the last two were confirmed.
Did we like it? Hell no! But our response was always, “See you at the ballot box.” As Conservatives, we understand and respect the principles upon which this Nation was founded.
The mob we’ve seen in these last few weeks are the product of a system that is populated in too many cases by “Educators” who themselves have no respect for the rule of law, is it any wonder their disciples don’t either?
For example, here’s a quote from an OpEd in today’s Times by Alexis Grenell titled “White Women, Come Get Your People” which takes Susan Collins to task for defending and voting for Brett Kavanaugh:
“Meanwhile, Senator Collins subjected us to a slow funeral dirge about due process and some other nonsense I couldn’t even hear through my rage headache as she announced on Friday she would vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”
American History was deleted from the “curriculum” the instant the Alinskyites took contol, at least American History as many of us remember it.
Rather than being taught that the United States is “the last best hope of Earth”, today’s children are being told that we’re the root of all evil in the World!
In order to combat a problem you must first understand it.
The Trump Administration has made great strides in repairing the damage done by four previous administrations, all of which engaged in the process of diminishing our Autonomy and ceding it over to the the Globalists in pursuit of “One World Order.”
Having secured the 5th vote on the court, we must not allow complacency to set in. If the Left is successful in recapturing even one legislative body we risk losing much if not all that we’ve gained including the Justice who was just sworn in.
To paraphrase from “The Lord of the Rings”:
“The Republic stands upon the edge of a knife. Stray but a little, and it will fail, to the ruin of all.”
We will have won nothing if we allow the “thrill of victory” to be transfomed by apathy, into “the agony of defeat.”
You are correct, Anthony, our Freedom, the good, sweet Life that is our America, tiptoes on the edge of a trembling precipice.
Although we Republicans were sorely disappointed in the fact that Obama won two terms, we “sucked up” our feelings of discouragement and believed in our election process. Obama had won by the rules set forth in our constitution; however, we knew that the next time around we would have our chance to voice our opinion at the polls to make the changes needed to bring America back where we wanted her to be . . . and we did, with the election of Donald Trump.
We did not riot in the streets, resort to name-calling, or the destruction of the personal property of others. We waited patiently for “our time.”
The mobs we have witnessed on television towards Conservatives, or anyone not sharing the ideals of the leftists/socialist/communist/Democratic party are straight out of Hitler’s playbook, Mein Kampf. The Democrats have evidently committed much devotion and time to that study of that malicious material of coercion, and no wonder, their “hero” is none other than George Soros. America needs to study the past doctrines of the socialist/communist leaders, for our young people especially, need to learn from those horrific institutions inflicted upon humanity in the past. Why? Because if we do not teach our young the errors of past socialist propaganda, Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It’s that easy to lose everything we have ever fought for.
