“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
I wonder, how many people today can ascribe each of the above to their historical documents; documents that are wholly unique in the history of civilization. Each is indicative of a people determined to grasp Freedom and Liberty within a white-knuckled grip and say to their foes, “No! You may not infringe on my God-granted Rights as a human being!” And, now, you may rightly ask why I have tossed both these profoundly American statements in your faces. Hearken to the title I’ve chosen for this article, “2016 IS THE SECOND 1776.” I believe that, not since the years leading up to our American Revolution, has our nation been as politically and philosophically divided and internally contentious as it is today and the root cause of this current, potentially disastrous schism is one thing, out of which every ugly, dark, and evil plant has sprung is the vile, wholly un-American dark seed that is Political Correctness. This Marxist-based concept underlies every battleground issue we are deluged with daily. It has led to the erosion of Truth, our American Truth that we are exceptional and unique in this world, it has permitted the neo-fascist Leftist-Progressives to ride roughshod over the majority of us with their demands to remodel us in the image of the socially, politically, and morally declining European nations – who, in reality, ceased to be real nations and became nothing more than city-states with the inception of the European Union, itself, really, nothing more than a deluded attempt to reconstitute the long-dead Austro-Hungarian Empire and, like that tragically despotic Empire, is an unmitigated failure. The degeneration of Europe into a glaringly obvious impotent, unholy mess is what the PC crowd is stubbornly determined to turn the United States into, by oozing unsubstantiated claims of inequality and unfairness by our system or by all-out blatant bullying and threats, a la Hitler’s infamous Brown Shirts. Yes, you read that correctly; I did conflate the Politically Correct “soldiers” here in the United States with Hitler’s Nazis. They are one and the same; same motivations, same tactics, same desired outcome – totalitarian control of the citizens.
At some point in time, we dozed off and permitted the neo-Fascists within our own culture to ram their anti-American sentiments of disparagement and outright hatred of Liberty and Freedom down our throats with the Brown Shirts’ most cherished tactics, bullying and threats of vile canards leveled at anyone who spoke the truth. Truth must be silenced, at any cost! One need only listen closely to their arguments in favor of multi-culturalism, diversity, etc., and it becomes crystal clear that none of their philosophies have any basis is reality whatsoever so it is absolutely necessary for them to “win the day” by banshee-screeching down the intelligent, reasoned opposition with threats and accusations of “racism” or “sexism” or whatever-ism they can concoct. Those allegations are, truly, frightening. No reasoned, sane American wants to carry the heinous, however wholly untrue, “tag” of “racist” and that is completely understandable. However, at some point, those of us who are still American in our philosophy, our morals, and our patriotism and belief in our nation and culture need to take a deep breath, armor ourselves with the truth that we are in the right and bear the burden of the unjust epithets spewed at us. Our Republic stands or falls upon our determination and courage to weather the storm of vileness that threatens to not only weaken but absolutely destroy the one and only true Republic nation whose foundation is based, unreservedly and dedicatedly, upon the Great Freedoms. The United States of America is the sole beacon of hope, freedom, liberty, and truth in this world. It was our reliance upon these moral truths that gave us the fortitude, dedication, and determination to not only win two World Wars but to resoundingly obliterate one of the greatest evils the world had ever fallen victim to up until now. We not only recognized where the high road to true justice laid but we were able to find it on our internal map and stay the course upon that road to a true moral victory over the foulest of evils. The day has returned when we must place our feet firmly upon that same high road, march up the highway to the pinnacle of Truth, Freedom, and Liberty once again; pushing off the edge of the cliff any and all aspects of the heinous, soul-stealing Political Correctness that we come across along our route. This rededication to true American Principles is our salvation. We are one nation, under God, ordained by God to carry the beacon of Truth, Justice, Freedom, and Liberty to all the peoples of the world. We are not one acorn in a bushel basket of acorns; we are the acorn, the seed of Liberty out of which the mighty tree of Freedom grows under whose branches diverse peoples across the globe still yearn to shelter.
In this Presidential election year, we have but one chance left to reclaim our Republic and reestablish her as she was ordained to be. The gale force winds of Leftist-Progressive-Marxism have, heretofore, been winning the skirmishes because, and we must “own” this, we have been lazy and apathetic about our responsibility as citizens of this great nation. We chose to allow the corruption of our core principles and morals to become degraded and that unacceptable attitude must be tossed out with yesterday’s trash. Generations before us struggled to create an ideal, a protected environment where Freedom and Liberty for all was the rule, not the exception; subsequent generations fought and died to preserve this Union of principles. Now, today, the mantle of responsibility is our inheritance and with that comes a requirement of commitment from every one of us to each of our founding principles. There can be no place in this Republic for totalitarian aspirations; such desires are anti-American in their totality and must be handed their hat and shown the door. We must reclaim our nation, our unique culture, and our moral core; there is no other course open to people who were nursed with the milk of Freedom. If you crave the power to disdain and control our people, you are in the wrong house. There are decaying mansions around the world where such desires are welcome and where you will find that you are a perfect fit; book your journey now. We cannot, we will not tolerate your presence in our house any longer. Consider this your eviction notice. It’s long past time for Political Correctness devotees to either beg forgiveness for their perversion and attempted subversion of our nation or move on.
The pitching of that gauntlet at the feet of our enemies begs one question of my fellow American citizens, with whom will you stand? Will you stand beneath the massive branches of the Liberty Tree with the shades of the Sons of Liberty or will you cower before the enemies of Freedom and Liberty? Will you choose only representatives who are dedicated to our Constitution or one who bases his positions on nothing more than a reflection of those same enemies’ anger and hatred? Like it or not, it is time to stand up straight and be a truly responsible American patriot; where do you stand? The clock is ticking.
In 251 days, we will elect a new President, all 435 members of our House of Representatives, and 34 seats in our Senate and know this, the Leftist-Progressives will go down in ignominy and the PC cadre will have no shelter left to them. Consider this the proverbial “shot across the bow”; your one and only warning. We, the dedicated, freedom-cherishing citizens of the United States of America are coming for you, have your bags packed because your time is over.
This is the United States of America; if you are a PC acolyte you are not one of us and you are no longer welcome here! Even tolerance has its limit.
