Over my several decades on planet Earth, I have watched my America evolve into something quite other than the America of our Founders and Framers or the America of my young years. Some may say, “But Roy, change is good and progress requires change.” I can accept that but some changes are NOT GOOD and some things called progress are actually digressions! Yes, America has had and still has problems but the core foundation of the principles of government and the ideals of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights was good and provided a pathway to continued Freedom and Liberty. That began to change long ago and over the past decade the attempt to “fundamentally transform” America into something akin to a third-world country where political and social insanity reigns have been rapid. I am disturbed and my heart breaks over the diabolical destruction transpiring as well as the vitriolic hate that is accepted and embraced by too many on both sides of the aisle politically.
The Left has long been proclaiming they are the Champions of Morality and Empathy. They declare themselves to be the Party of the People and the Compassionate whereas they Right are labeled as unfeeling, uncaring, unsympathetic haters of everyone other than the super-rich. Now, the Never Trumpers and the GOP Establishment are attempting to channel the Democrat in them and practicing what some are calling ‘virtue-signaling’. That is, they are taking public positions that are deemed to be politically correct and proclaiming their virtue and goodness telling the public how wonderful they are because they are on the side of compassion and are joining the ranks of the self-proclaimed morally superior. They pretend to care more than others and therefore they are a superior person. THAT IS DISGUSTING. Just do what is right and there will be no need to ‘toot your own horn’. Follow the Constitution and Rule of Law and the proof will be in the pudding, you do not need to be Democrats be what you told the voters you were.
My heart breaks for Senator John McCain as he battles brain cancer and has declared that he is dying. He is exhibiting a heart filled with hate and revenge he is to be pitied, in my view. He recently said that he did not want Donald Trump or Sarah Palin at his funeral. He has fought the president at every turn and most of his opposition has not appeared to be ideological but personal. I believe that John McCain developed a hatred and bitterness for everyone who did not vote for him to be president and his ego was shattered when Trump won in contrast to his losing the presidency. He has blamed Sarah Palin for his loss much in the spirit of Hillary Clinton blaming others rather than taking personal responsibility. The Democrats mocked Ronald Reagan when it became apparent that he suffered from Alzheimer’s and that was sickening and now McCain is channeling his Democrat in the venting of his hatred. I would think that when one is faced with sure death they would want to find peace, not turmoil but hate is so powerful and the thirst for revenge so powerful some are consumed by it. I bring up John McCain, not for the purpose of solely talking about him but to reveal a condition that seems to be prevalent in our America today. HATE is destroying relationships, clouding sound judgment, and preventing us from finding real solutions to our societal problems. Problems that we could overcome with love and understanding. HATE is ‘transforming’ America.
Academia has shifted from being about education using and teaching the core and fundamental elements of learning to being indoctrination factories to brainwash impressionable young minds. Their objective is to develop them into being liberal leftists and activists for the agenda of the socialism and progressivism. When former first lady Barbara Bush passed away, California State University professor Randa Jarrar went on Twitter and blasted the former first lady as an “amazing racist” and rejoiced in her death. New Jersey, Brookdale Community College professor Howard Finkelstein got into a heated exchanged with a conservative student and yelled at that student, “F*** your life!” At City University of New York School of Law, students shouted down guest lecturer Josh Blackman for 10 minutes. Duke University president Vincent Price tried to address the alumni, students took over the stage, shouting demands telling him to leave. There is a new study produced by Brooklyn College professor Mitchell Langbert – – “Homogenous: The Political Affiliations of Elite Liberal Arts College Faculty” that demonstrates that domination in academia. He examined the political affiliation of Ph.D. holding faculty of 51 of the 66 top-ranked liberal arts colleges and found that 39% of those schools are Republican free with ZERO registered Republicans. The professors of our major colleges and universities are so left-leaning and often engage in incredible activism for leftist agendas it is alarming. Math and science and the core elements of education have morphed into political ideological studies of some kind and the promotion of lifestyles rather education.
We have marches that call for the end of “male supremacy” and the attack on males is alarming and the assault on white males even more pronounced. The result of many of the Leftist policies has been to destroy the two-parent families where there are a father and mother in the home. The government, through entitlements, has become the surrogate father and the result is seen in many of those children so raised. Most of those committing acts of violence in mass murders were not afforded a strong male role model in the home. Discipline has been tossed in the waste bin in our society and children raised with the absence of discipline usually become undisciplined entitlement minded adults. That creates rather than resolves the very problems that the liberals complain about and demand that we fix. More laws or regulations, more diminishing our inalienable rights will not resolve moral, mental, or heart issues that come from a change within and adhering to the rule of law and the constitution as well as the Bible.
How long do we have as a Free Constitutional Republic? That depends on who we elect to govern. If we allow the Democrats to regain control of Congress in 2018 and the White House in 2020 the answer is NOT LONG. If we hold them at bay and oust those who will not follow the Constitution and fulfill the campaign promises that got them into office we can endure and see our Republic restored. THE CHOICE IS OURS in November. What is your choice?
God bless you and God bless America!
