There is a war being fought of even more potential consequence than the Civil War – it is for the very existence of the United States of America as we know it.
As we look back over the Obama years, we see a steady, silent, deadly erosion of the Constitutional Government. Schools revising history; liberal professors indoctrinating students with Utopian dreams of World Government; and Political Correctness being used to reinforce the victimhood of specific minorities. Extreme Left-Wing principles straight from the pages of the Communist Manifesto being espoused as truth. News Media – always a bastion of Liberal Ideology – emboldened by a government committed to these principles openly biased in their Left-Leaning views.
Then, a miracle happened. The presumptive coronation of Queen Hillary was derailed. A President was elected whose Conservative principles were directly counter to the Established Ideology, and whose self-made status made him immune to the bribes of politicians and lobbyists. There must be some mistake – the Russians did it; election fraud; She won the Popular Vote; the Electoral College should be abandoned; this President is illegitimate; he is not equipped to lead the country – on and on and on.
Let’s take a look at the United State as a whole to see why Donald Trump was elected and why the vicious outrage from the Left seems insatiable and unending.
The USA is unique in many respects, perhaps the most interesting at the moment is that it is a union of 50 states of varying population size and density, and varying natural resources. The least populated state, Wyoming at 580,000, resembles a modest sized European city, while the most populated, California at almost 40 million, rivals the population of a small country. The documents that define the nature of that Union, the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution as amended 27 times, and the Federalist papers (the blog of the day discussing the creation of the Constitution) were written by brilliant men of great vision. Incidentally, the Fleisch-Kincaid reading level of these documents is greater than 18, suggesting that a useful PhD is required to fully understand their true meaning.
Currently, the most controversial topic is the method by which representatives, and particularly the President, are elected. Representatives in the “lower house” serve 2 year terms and are allocated to states in proportion to the state populations. The 7 least populated have but one representative; California has 53. Senators in the “upper house” serve a 6 year term, and are allocated 2 per state regardless of population. The President is elected by majority vote of a group called the Electoral College, a very wise choice, rather that by popular majority across the whole country. The number of members of the electoral college is allocated to states in proportion to their population so that no state can be safely ignored by a presidential candidate, as Ms. Clinton learned the hard way.
To summarize the stunning victory of Donald Trump last November, the Democrats easily held the West and East coasts, but the majority of the “fly over” states – the states the Liberals looked down on as they flew from coast to coast to fund raising events – went to the Republicans. They are the manufacturing and agriculture states where people bring home hard-earned pay checks, still revere America and all it stands for, and resent the arrogant abuse of power and wealth in Washington.
During the election campaign, violent mobs were hired by agents of the Democratic party to disrupt Donald Trump’s rallies and suggest that he was causing violence while the news media accepted uncritically news items from liberal unnamed sources – later to be dubbed “fake news” – attempting to besmirch Donald Trump’s character. This was the feeble beginning of what would soon grow into the most disgraceful display of hatred and rancor ever seen in this country.
The problem for the Left and for the Establishment Republicans is the same. Donald Trump made a series of election promises that he intends to keep, and being independently wealthy and not particularly awed by his new-found power, he is immune to the usual influence peddling and lobbying that is part of conventional politics. He was elected by people who were, and still are, sickened by Washington politics. He has forged new avenues for communicating with his supporters without needing the conventional new media who deliberately distort every aspect of the Presidency.
The Democrat political machine that was silently destroying the fabric of this country during the Obama Years has been disenfranchised, and has moved underground to orchestrate the downfall of this “upstart individual.” Ignorant discussions of acts within the power of the presidency as impeachable offenses. Unashamedly leaking classified documents to the uncritical media only too happy to embarrass the Presidency. Perhaps the most shameful tactic is the recent attacks on conservative commentators – digging up allegations of sexual misconduct and destroying their reputations and employment without having to prove the accusations at trial.
Some commentators say that America is on the verge of another Civil War. They are wrong – we are in the middle of one. The first one was fought physically by opposing armies, and its scars still cover the landscape. The tombs of over 620,000 Americans. It was really about destroying the fragile union of thirteen states. “A common explanation is that the Civil War was fought over the moral issue of slavery. In fact, it was the economics of slavery and political control of that system that was central to the conflict. A key issue was states’ rights. The Southern states wanted to assert their authority over the federal government so they could abolish federal laws they didn’t support, especially laws interfering with the South’s right to keep slaves and take them wherever they wished.” [http://www.pbs.org/opb/historydetectives/feature/causes-of-the-civil-war] The second Civil War is being fought today in the hearts and minds of the American people. Sick, demented media outlets are shamelessly spewing lies and ignoring the truth that since his election, President Trump, in spite of the absence of support of Establishment Republicans, has made enormous strides in bringing morality and prosperity back to America. Perhaps the longest-lasting impact any president can have on the nation’s morality is his/her duty to appoint judges especially judges of the supreme court. By appointing Judge Gorsuch to replace Antonin Scalia, President Trump maintained the fragile, 5-4 majority in favor of constitutional and moral conservatism.
Constitutional amendments have long since settled the specific problems of race, slavery and gender. However, Liberals are still trying to impose their twisted views on the nature of America that run in opposition to everything the U. S. Constitution describes. If it could happen, the second Civil War would be not a physical fight between armies but a spiritual conflict between evil and good with the yardstick of the Constitution as the arbiter. The end result would not be states separating, it would be the breakdown of law and order in our cities and neighborhoods which, if unopposed, leads to anarchy. This must not happen. Corrupting influences (look up George Soros) including those within the government still actively breaking the law by leaking stories, and the Clintons who have a sordid history of major crimes against this country, must be exposed.
Now, as never before, the good people of America who elected President Trump must band together in the 2018 elections to express their loathing of the status quo by voting Left Wing Democrats and Establishment Republicans out of office.
