Clearly there is a war on common decency faith and our founding principles in today’s culture. It has taken the form of Political Correctness and morphed into an all-out war of cancelling the culture we have lived under for two and a half centuries.
Our elected government has been orchestrating the attack on its people and the way of life enjoyed by Americans and sought after by people from the rest of the world. Yes, the very people we have entrusted with governance is leading the charge. They have come after us with a vengeance. So, they are no different from all dictators and no better than the monarchs at any time in history. They have adopted the way all tyrants that manipulated their subjects and how, the citizens of this nation are being converted to subjects as well. They have become the enemy. Nothing is new under the sun, Solomon said, and Jack Webb in the Dragnet series added, “…. Only the names have been changed” … and I say, “to protect the criminals”.
Therefore, the ruling elite is nothing more than a modern-day monarchy that has taken up residence in our places of government.
Throughout history the rich and powerful has used the technique of pitting one class of citizen against another. Today it is Black against white and the Poor against rich, for example.
We, the people, responsible for putting them in charge of running the country and wanting change must now resist and exercise civil disobedience in order to affect change. We must shift the control from those in government back to the us as is so clearly stated in the constitution. And, clearly, politicians stay in office far too long. Thus, we have allowed them to establish that monarch and act like Kings and Queens. Effectively we put them on the throne.
These are the very people representing us, who turn around and marginalize and demonize different segments of the society. We need to fix this. We need to turn the tables on them and set up a narrative of us (we the people) against a corrupt bunch in government at all levels.
Otherwise, the road we have been traveling is a dead end and too likely to lead to our demise as a country. It would be a point of no return and the end of hope. It would be the end of the way our founders and others, up and to the late 20th Century, envisioned and the way we are to be represented in government. It is impossible to imagine those “lifer” politicians will change their evil ways and return to governing for the people, from whom they derive their powers.
It is highly unlikely a white knight will suddenly appear on the scene to save us. Clearly, we must do it ourselves. The individualism that birthed America will have to rise up and flip the narrative to put an end to the oppressors reign in government. Impose term limits in our constitution and end their cushy high paying and powerful jobs.
We know full well their performance has been abysmal and if it weren’t’ so serious it would be laughable.
Great numbers of our citizenry must bark out “we are on to you and it is us against you.” Yes, I said it, us against them – the people against the corrupt government. Such a war on the evil in today’s government is an honorable endeavor and a noble stance in a noble cause.
God save the Republic.
