WATCH THE PROGRESSIVES SQUIRM!
My friend and often guest writer, Ron Jenkins, sent me a copy of this message to a member of his family. There is so much wisdom, facts, and sincerity expressed I hope you find this has a message you would share with your family like I will and I hope you do.
Unfortunately I have at least one daughter, two granddaughters and eventually some great grands that will have to painfully discover common sense someday on their own. They choose not to listen to me and would at this point, deny they are even related to me. I have enough family that does understand that what the Liberal-Demoncratic-Progressives have brainwashed these destructive paid and unpaid demonstrators with is nothing more than Government Imposed Socialism.
I hope these hate-filled people watch the sometimes crude like surgical transformation of a disunited America back into the “United States of America I so dearly love. God has Saved America if these animals can’t find another Judas and kill Donald Trump. C Brewer
I guess most social issues have relevance to those who keep them close to their hearts.
Recent elections have surely brought to the surface the widespread, & differing opinions held by people from coast to coast and border to border. The Civil War ended over 150 years ago, yet tensions and volatility still exist between North and South; between East and West; between cultures and religions. Vestiges of prejudice and involuntary servitude are not very far from the surface; violence envy & animosity are evident in the daily news cycle. We are not as mature and civilized a society as we could be or should be. We have a long way to go; however, I think that some American’s forget how lucky we are to live in this country, rather than Asia, Africa, Middle East or elsewhere; that do not have our freedoms and the opportunities for advancement that we have. You’ve lived O/S, as I have, and have seen it first-hand.
We, as a nation, should do some comparisons with those other parts of the world and recognize that generational change does not occur overnight. Nor does it come fast enough for the last few X, Y or Z, generations of……impatient, “I WANT it now” citizen’s. Those people who have little understanding of our early history, the heritage of the founders, many of whom came to North American to escape religious persecution and royal tyranny, and to seek the freedom to do it the way they wanted, with as little governmental interference as a Representative Republic could offer.
The keynote these days seems to be “equality”, and to use the phrase I criticized earlier in the week, that could be a “code” word for the concept behind Communism or Liberal Progressive ism.
What many in this country fail to comprehend is that Capitalism built this country and made it rich. And, under Capitalism, not all of us are equal in ability or drive or dedication to a goal. However, I believe many, if not most of the well-off US taxpayers, are willing and able to provide help and support to those able bodied citizens who are less well off, but willing to get trained and skilled, rather than always and indefinitely, relying on gov’t assistance. The three levels of gov’t should do as much as possible to curb welfare fraud and the illegitimate payments to the millions that were added to the welfare rolls, during the last eight years and beyond. Those illegal payments that go to illegal aliens, to people with fake ID’s & driver’s licenses, those who can work but choose not to.
The poor can’t afford and therefore, don’t get the same quality of health care, as does a person who has the means to pay for better health insurance coverage, medical specialist care, private hospitalization or even a funeral. Apparently, some protesters, think they should. A private hospital room versus an eight patient ward. A private school versus a free Community College. Benefits that are 100% Tax free, etc., etc. That isn’t the real world, but it is the Utopian promise of the Socialist and Liberal Progressive in every country that has tried it and failed, in the past millennia.
American’s must and will hopefully continue to evolve into a people with less prejudice towards anyone who is different, in any way, from the way they view themselves. The watch word I am continually espousing is tolerance. Again, IMHO, to be willing and able to accept others who are different, is the standard I judge myself by. I frequently find myself falling short of my goal, when I react emotionally or viscerally to people or groups who purport to condemn all those who disagree with their pet philosophies & beliefs and who do so without an educational or historical background or the mental equipment to carry forth a sound and rational argument with an opponent.
