In recent weeks I found myself thinking about the growing lack of Patriotism and increased turmoil in America. As I thought about this I also began to wonder how so many people in America could hate America as much as they do, rather than being proud “to be an American”! As I thought more about this it occurred to me that we no longer have a “two party system of government” but have somehow become a “two different ideologies nation”. One of those ideologies (Liberal) openly opposes all the standards and ideals that our country was built on and that made us the greatest nation on earth. There are exceptions and “grey areas” but it seems obvious to me that the two ideologies that dominate our politics today are Patriotism and Liberalism. This may seem like an over simplification but I think the two definitions below make my point.
A Patriot is a person who loves his or her country and supports its authority and interest.
A Liberal is a person who believes that government should be active in promoting social and political change.
As I have noted in several of my writings recently, with each passing day I become more horrified and furious with what is happening in Washington D.C., and some of our major cities! And the “reporting” on what is happening is just as bad as what is actually happening. I have been a news and information “junkie” for decades but now I find myself actually avoiding most “Information outlets” including TV, the internet, and print media. Now I refuse to refer to any of them as “news”. The exception is FOX NEWS and they have so many deranged Liberals on there now that I regularly have to turn it off!
Here is a small sample of what we are seeing and hearing everyday:
Wall to wall coverage of Senate and Congressional hearings where elected, and appointed government officials simply “make stuff up” and call people (including President Trump) liars on national TV and live screening internet sites. And the Main Stream Media (MSM) makes sure this is all you can see or hear if you try and follow the news.
Organized (legal) anti-Sharia Law (not anti-Muslim) rallies were violently attacked by organized, masked anarchist in multiple cities.
The special prosecutor, Robert Mueller is rapidly staffing his special prosecutor office with DEVOUT Obama and Hillary supporters (Trump haters)! It has also been confirmed that Mueller and Comey are long term, very close friends!
All the Liberals in Washington, and some major cities, are tripping over each other trying to get in front of any TV camera or microphone they can find. This is especially true if the media the Liberals are talking to is part of the MSM, who are just as desperate to run with the Liberal “fake news” as the people spreading it are!
7:15 A.M., June 14, Republican members of Congress, their staff, and members of the Capital police security detail were targeted by a lone gunman with a long gun and a pistol, in an extended attack, during a practice session for the annual Congressional charity fundraiser baseball game. Multiple people are shot, including the gunman.
Throughout our history people of all political leanings have served our great country with honor, with many making the ultimate sacrifice. Unfortunately that is not the case now if you are a Liberal! Liberals and the MSM are so obsessed with destroying the Trump Presidency that no price for achieving that objective is too high, including destroying America! In fact, destroying America is their ultimate objective and they see President Trump as an unexpected obstacle to achieving their goal! That is why they are so obsessed with destroying him!
On FOX NEWS on Wednesday, June 14 Newt Gingrich said, “The attacks on President Trump will not end until January 20, 2025, when he leaves office, and then they will start on President Pence or whoever replaces President Trump”. I believe he is absolutely correct. I said something similar in some of my recent articles. It seems appropriate to repeat it now.” It is not going to be easy and it is not going to happen quickly but I do believe that those of us that still believe in the Constitution will win what has become an open “battle for America”, if we continue to stand against the America haters like we did in November 2016! America became the greatest nation on earth because of what our Founding Fathers gave us, the Constitution. Especially the right to free speech, the right to own guns, and good old American Capitalism!”
As the title of this article says, you cannot be a Patriot if you are a Liberal!
