There’s a war of ideologies going on. Make no mistake, destroying symbols of history without the destroyers even understanding history, tearing apart and occupying cities, the cancel culture movement, the re-branding of America as something it is not and never was designed to be, disrespecting the National Anthem, forcing Americans to say and do as unelected people decide we should say and do, re-inventing our vocabulary- it’s all a part of an ideological war against the existence of America. Instead, Communists, Marxists, and other factions desire to rule by a few (oligarchy), dictatorship, even autocracy. They intend to achieve their goals by naming, shaming, blaming, occupation, totalitarianism, re-writing history, subtle loss of our freedoms, misuse of our Constitution, mayhem, murder, theft, etc.
Are you freer today than you were at the beginning of this year? It’s not just COVID, folks. COVID has become an excuse to strip away your rights to individual freedom for the “greater good.” I get it. I understand the need for precautions. You and I have taken those necessary precautions. Now, we discover that there’s no real end to the loss of freedom. Unelected and elected people are treasuring new powers that we did not elect them to take. Our founding documents give them limited and enumerated (spelled out) powers.
COVID is a problem and a serious one at that. No disease or tragedy has the right to take away your freedoms. Nowhere in the Constitution does it allow for an indefinite loss of liberty.
Wars require a plan, an execution of the plan, and an end to the plan. The followers on this page who are military men and women can tell you that in better words than I can. The anti-American agenda has a plan. They are executing their plan. The end game is on when they take over schools, businesses, industry, and government. The State’s total authority replaces freedom to worship, bear arms, freely and peaceably assemble, a free press, free speech, and the right to petition your government for a redress of grievances. They will tell you who you are, what you can do, where you can go, when you can go, and how you will get there. They will divide you.
Who sees these things happening now? Do you? A representative republic with the Constitution as the supreme law of the land will exist in name only. Individual rights and our unity as a nation will become a distant memory if we don’t stand up for America as founded.
The problem is, many people don’t know the truth of America’s founding. They find it “boring.” Learning is “inconvenient.” They go along with the cultural drift because it’s easy. Dr. Andrew A. Michta had this to say in a recent commentary. “It is no longer enough to wait for the next election, or to pin our hopes on a “silent majority” that will eventually stop the madness. There may be no such majority. If there is, its members may no longer be able to articulate what they see unfolding around them … The challenge is massive, but it starts with the simple act of calling things by their proper names.” (Michta, Andrew A., “The Captive Mind and America’s Resegregation,” The Wall Street Journal, July 31, 2020: Opinion section, Print). We have to know our American language, culture, customs, heritage, and freedoms in order to call things by their proper names. It requires effort. We need to make a plan, execute the plan, and see the end game of our plan to victory.
What step are you willing to take to keep America free?
