The New American Dream – People Who Tell The Truth

Published

on

What they say vs What they do, and the proven effects of what they do. 

“Everyone must wear masks to stem the spread of Covid19 or surely we will die!” That was the lie. 

The truth is that Covid19 cannot be inhibited by standard masks because the virus is small enough to easily pass through all but the most restrictive materials. But we were told that not wearing a mask was an act of aggression toward others and a civic duty. So, we all wore masks. Many still do and are angry at you if you don’t. They told us to maintain six feet of “Social Distance.” That measure came from the 1918 Flu epidemic and had no basis in scientific proof that it worked. They counted any death whether from heart disease, cancer or other causes as Covid19 deaths if the patient had been exposed. The huge numbers alarmed us. They lied.

Thousands of businesses were bankrupted and millions of people lost their jobs and income from this symbolic and manipulative policy. Friends stopped shaking hands. Families stopped hugging. Human closeness disappeared. The joy of work and serving others was replaced by the “duty” of making people mask up or leave.

“The Keystone XL Pipeline is bad for the environment.” That was the lie. 

The truth is that fossil fuels in the USA today are our friends! The best way to protect the environment and keep life in America functioning well is to continue our intelligent and responsible use of fossil fuels. We need it for electric power, for water purity, for manufacturing, for heat and much more. In fact, it takes more fossil fuel to make an electric car than the car will ever save in gasoline consumption! And nobody talks about the toxic waste from millions of batteries.

Shutting down the pipeline put thousands out of jobs, took millions from communities and industries that would have been served by it, and even though it was already funded, they shut it down. Why? To spit in Trump’s face. Now they are enabling the Russian pipeline to Germany with no environmental concerns. More lies. 

I could go on with Education Pollution (Critical Race Theory, 1619 Project, Gender Identity confusion) or we could shift to the lies about “Sanctuary Cities, States, etc.” or “Border Security” or “Human Rights concerns” or “Voter Suppression”, “Russian Collusion”, or “Taxing the Rich to pay their Fair Share.” There’s an endless list of lies. 

By their fruits you shall know them. 

Assume these weren’t intentional lies, that their authors actually have good intentions. That’s quite a stretch, but let’s just act as if it were so for a moment.

If someone were drowning and I “intended” to save them but they died anyway, what would you think of that? As long as I had good intentions would I be justified? If they were 5 feet under water and I dove in and lifted them to only 1/2 inch under the surface, would you praise me? Of course not! I didn’t do the job. They drowned anyway.

America is drowning in murder, violence, inflation, fear, hatred, racism, cancel culture, monument destruction, vandalism, looting, despair and regulation of every aspect of life. Our children are being indoctrinated to believe unnatural and anti-American and racist things. Soon I suspect they will turn them against their parents as the Nazis did in Germany. Kids will become the spies in each household who report on dissenter parents and siblings.

Our political and media leaders tell us daily that they are making voting more fair, healthcare more accessible, roads more reliable, the environment cleaner and international relations stronger. But NONE of that is true! Not some, not most, NONE! Lies everywhere. Lies are normal from today’s media and political leaders.

Look at America since the era of Trump Hatred was replaced with Symbolic Incompetence. The Biden Administration and Democrat Party from top to bottom are focused only on erasing all vestiges of Trump and his policies that were working. They are solidifying their power and control of government, while extending the federal controls into every moment of daily life.

Judge them by their results!

Read the news, watch the videos, see the earmarks in the legislation, tour the homeless encampments, count the murders, see the angry mobs claiming racism, talk to the discouraged police, count the thousands of invaders at our southern border, watch the hate crimes toward Jews, note the size of the government expenditures, list the policy changes and regulations that restrict life in America, notice the removal of your freedoms. Ask your kids what they learned in school. See the reality!

We are being lied to every day by the White House, State House, Court House, Poor House, Big House, Out House  and every other metaphorical “house” you can conjure.

It is time for a new American Dream, a dream of honesty, trust, compassion, courage, self-reliance, integrity, outrage, faith and Freedom! But dreaming isn’t enough. We must stop the bleeding or the patient will die.

First aid tells us to: 1. Stop the bleeding, 2. Clear the airway (for breath), 3. Protect the Patient and 4. Treat for Shock (PTSD). Our nation is bleeding profusely in every one of the aforementioned categories. We must stop these incompetents from doing more damage. Then we must open communication airways so that anyone can talk with anyone else without worries over political correctness, social media exclusions or “woke” language.

Next we must protect our nation from further attacks from within. We need to elect a powerful Conservative majority for at least two political seasons so that the damage can be undone and the desecration reversed. Finally we must treat this nation for the depression and disorientation that came from this massive attack on our culture. We must “get our minds right” once again, not in subservience but in confidence and truth.

Purge the sick thinking of the Leftists and return to: One Nation, Under God, Indivisible (not by race, by gender, by status, nor political party), With Liberty and Justice For All. Freedom in America comes from Self-Reliant Good People.

When you diminish self-reliance by restricting Freedoms then you poison our society. My American Dream is that we learn again to love the Truth and to diminish those who would restrict us from open free speech, freedom of movement  and freedom of  religious expression.

Alexis De Tocqueville said, “When America ceases to be good, she will cease to be Great.”

Let’s make America good again!

GOP Primaries, for GOP Registered Voters

It is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate

Published

on

Let us resolve to keep our primary voting to those who are registered Republicans. One can make the argument that there are closet Republicans who, for fear of reprisal in the workplace, cannot join the Republican party but are, nevertheless, Republican in sentiment.

However, this is a small group. And, they are more than offset by hordes of Democrats who, if allowed into Republican primaries will do their dirty work as they have done throughout counties in North Carolina and throughout the nation.

Only Republicans

Overall, it is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate.

As a case in point, on the national level, the RINO Nikki Haley would be out of the race if not for Democrat voters stepping over the line in coordinated effort and voting in Republican primaries. Granted, she is backed by billionaire mega-donors who fear Donald Trump. If Democrats could not vote in the GOP primaries, however, the mega-donors dollars wouldn’t be worth much.

As a result of Haley staying in the race, Donald Trump has to spend a bit more than otherwise, and deflect some of his attention away from the Democrats, the swamp, and the Marxist’s plans to destroy our country.

Fracturing Along Fault Lines

The panoply of liberal and Leftist policies are harmful to society

Published

on

Biden and company want to contort the right to vote, endlessly fund Ukraine, kowtow to Middle East terrorists, pack the Supreme Court, end the filibuster, disband the electoral college, treat January 6th protestors like insurrectionists, convict Trump on SOMETHING, appease China, and permanently make tens of millions of Americans totally dependent on government entitlements.

In recent years, the questionable lockdowns, restrictions, and mandates over COVID-19, and Democrats’ willingness to overlook street violence, enhances my view that the Left loves the idea of total authority and forevermore imposing its will on all of us.

Insanity Over the Top

The panoply of liberal or Leftist viewpoints, from no need for voter ID to restrictions on the 1st Amendment, to indoctrinating children is harmful to society.

Is it acceptable to teach children that there are more than 50 genders? Do you believe, as Leftists do that children may choose their gender? Do you think that cross-dressers ought to be reading to children at story hour? Should the sciences, mathematics, and other core academic disciplines be taught to accommodate ‘politically diverse’ points of view?

Are you okay with colleges holding separate graduation exercises and celebrations for different ethnic minorities? Martin Luther King, Jr, must be rolling over in his grave. Should entire college curricula be redesigned because most of the great works of literature throughout history have been written by white males?

Should student loans be exonerated? Should colleges establish safe spaces? Are you perturbed when conservative speakers are disrupted from speaking on campus, or are banned from campus? Curiously, can a university promise students an unbiased education when 97% of college professors’ political donations go to Democrats?

Open the Spigots!

Should Medicare be provided for all and, if so, how do you pay for it? Is late-trimester abortion acceptable? After a baby is born, is it the right of the mother and the doctor to choose whether or not that person will continue to live?

Should we have open borders, and let in anyone who wants to come here, now approaching 9 million since Biden was installed? Are illegal immigrants to be given free healthcare once they cross the border, as all Democrat presidential contenders stated on live TV in 2020? How do hordes arrive at the southern border, well-fed and hydrated, after trekking 100s or 1000s of miles, with sturdy walking shoes and cell phones? Should they be flown and bussed all over the U.S. courtesy of the Biden administration? Are sanctuary cities a good idea, and do they support the lives and aspirations of actual U.S. citizens?

When newspaper headlines scream about gun violence, is wringing your hands over the issue any solace for families in Chicago or Baltimore ghetto communities who experience gun violence on a daily basis? Do you care about the issue, or do you only get riled up when the mainstream media stokes your emotions by giving World War II coverage to carefully crafted, elevated cases?

Is calling others racist acceptable when, in your own heart, you know that you are biased at times against this group or that? Is virtue signaling an acceptable form of social participation, or should one actually take appropriate, non-violent action to address a perceived wrong? Is a comment from 30 or 40 years ago made by a celebrity — or a politician, for that matter — enough to cancel his or her career?

Goals and Tactics of Violent Groups

Are the goals and violent tactics of Antifa acceptable to you? If they’re proud of what they stand for and forthright in their actions, why do they wear ski masks? Appearing in selected cities in time to cause trouble, and leading the turmoil following the death of George Floyd, how many of them actually hold jobs?

In pursuit of protests, do any pay for their own transportation and housing costs? If they do not pay for themselves, who is paying? Most curiously, why do they often go after the most vulnerable people they can find in any gathering? Is it okay when law enforcement stands down in the face of violence committed by those on the left?

The Left embraces mass insanity and it’s getting more absurd all the time. Yet, it appears that Leftists do not understand the magnitude and ramifications of many of their political and social views. Their agenda, fully implemented, would destroy our civilization in less than a few years.
One Generation

Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men [and women] were free.”

It would be nice to reach consensus, in some way, with those on the Left, however, my sensibilities cry out and say that would be cultural and national suicide.
