For decades Americans have been subjected to a campaign of propaganda to bolster Socialism, erode our Constitutional rights, control our thoughts and behavior, and generally weaken the Christian, conservative morals and beliefs on which our country was founded. The Democratic Party has been hijacked by Socialists, and the Leftist main stream media has provided a platform for their propaganda.
The Nature of Good and Evil:
Almost half of America refuses to believe that there is real evil in the world. Instead many of them believe that there is “good in every man”, that if we just appeal to that inner good we can certainly find ground to negotiate; they believe “one man’s ‘patriot’ is another man’s ‘terrorist’ “
They believed the lies President Obama and his loyal soldiers like Susan Rice, Marie Harf and Samantha Powers told them about the nuclear weapons and ballistic missile being developed in Iran and North Korea, and how Russia had destroyed “100% of Syria’s chemical weapons program”, and how al Qaeda had been defeated, and how ISIS was a “JV team” and simply not a threat. They turned a blind eye to the real world, and instead listened to the soothing, placating words of the Leftist main stream media while China slowly defeated our Pacific interests, and Russia returned to power and supplanted the U.S. and our interests in the Middle East, and North Korea perfected their nuclear weapons… and now the truth can be clearly seen.
Almost half of America looks at all the threats America faces around the world and concludes it’s a good time to cut our Defense budget to fund welfare for millions upon millions of illegal immigrants.
“The first idea the child must acquire is that of the difference between good and evil” ~ Maria Tecla Artemisia Montessori, 20th century Italian physician and educator best known for the philosophy of education that bears her name.
Big Government Control and High Taxes:
Almost half of America believes that government can solve all our problems and is willing to allow them to take half or more of our income to pay for it. They’re fine with 15% of Americans (the richest in our country) paying 85% of all the federal income taxes collected, while 45% of Americans pay no federal income tax at all.
Almost half of America believes it’s perfectly acceptable to use Internal Revenue Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Bureau of Land Management, and even the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency against Conservative Americans to achieve their Liberal political goals.
They believe that if they cannot get what they want from the process of free elections and Congressional representation, they’ll get it through Judicial activism, because America is a land of racism that must be “fundamentally changed” to be of any value… and to these people the end justifies the means.
The end never justifies the means. There really is such a thing as real truth and justice.
“The moral high ground is surrounded on all sides by the slippery slope” ~ The Blind Pirate
Capitalism, Socialism and a Free-Market Economy:
Almost half of America believes that Socialism (a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by “the community as a whole”, and that the “community as a whole” should be represented but a collection of professional bureaucrats, usually referred to as a “politburo” or “bureaucracy representing the public”) is superior to Capitalism.
The real truth about Socialism can be found in a book written by its founder Karl Marx in 1848 – his “Communist Manifesto”. He wrote that Socialism is “a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism”, during which the government seizes control of the country and consolidates power in trusted “party” members.
Almost half of America believed President Obama when he said, “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that!”, referring to the contributions of their employees and the value added of tax-payer funded infrastructure. Instead they, like he, discount the value of risk-taking, entrepreneurship and innovation in building something entirely new and unique and making America better as a result. They look at American independent business and see small, bite-sized nuggets that should be swallowed up by unions.
Almost half of America thinks that the “minimum wage” should be a “living wage” sufficient to sustain a family on a single income, with two cars and their own home… and thinks this can be achieved without driving up the costs of everything sold in America.
The truth is that when wages are forced upward, prices will go up, companies will hire fewer employees and menial jobs will be automated… just as we are now seeing. Its simple math.
Almost half of Americans don’t seem to understand that the government can’t give anything to anybody that it does not first take from somebody else, and that if we don’t turn away from the cradle-to-grave welfare state soon the people who work for a living will be overwhelmed by people who vote for a living. We cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by taxing the wealthy out of prosperity.
“The ideology of capitalism makes us all into connoisseurs of liberty, and of the indefinite expansion of possibility” ~ Susan Sontag, 20th century American writer, filmmaker, teacher, and political activist.
The Brainwashing of our Children:
Almost half of Americans are willing to relinquish the upbringing of their children to the public school system and the State, and they support the Liberal indoctrination our children receive from grade school teachers, to college professors, to Hollywood, to the main stream media.
This has been going on for so long that today’s parents have no concept of anything different.
“Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world” ~ Vladimir Lenin, 20th century Russian communist revolutionary, politician and political theorist, responsible for the deaths of at least four million Russians
Almost half of America shouts, “Save the Children – Ban the Guns” and “Right to Choose for Women” (by killing unborn children) out of the same mouth.
They believe that a woman’s right to be promiscuous and foolish with her actions, her lifestyle and her body outweighs God’s decree that life begins at the moment of conception.
Even if they do NOT support elective abortion, they will typically support exceptions for rape and incest, which is nothing more than trying to compromise with God and His Bible.
“It seems to me clear as daylight that abortion would be a crime” ~ Mahatma Gandhi, 20th century Indian activist and the leader of the Indian independence Movement against British rule
The Constitution, and Law and Order:
Almost half of America believes the Constitution and Bill of Rights are flawed, outdated documents written by rich, white slave owners, and that they must be changed “for the good of society”. Funny thing is that most of them have never actually read the Constitution and base their entire understanding on what they have been told by their uber-Liberal teachers and professors from grade school through college. If we were to try to ratify the Constitution today it would never pass muster.
They’d be perfectly comfortable impeaching our legally and Constitutionally elected President for no reason other than the fact that the candidate they wanted to win did not succeed.
Almost half of America Is fine with the flood of illegal immigrants pouring into our country, and the lawless actions of the “Sanctuary Cities” and even whole states. In fact, they’re just fine with America having no actual borders at all.
They seek to allow all comers unchecked and unvetted across our borders, live on welfare in our cities, and send their children to our colleges free of tuition, draining tax dollars and leaving our own children to fend for themselves for a decent education.
These “Americans” see themselves as ‘citizens of the world’ rather than a citizen of America, and yet at the same time they see citizens of Mexico as citizens of America.
“To determine the true rulers of any society, ask yourself this question: Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize?” ~ François-Marie Arouet, aka “Voltaire”, 18th century French writer, historian and philosopher
Almost half of America fails to see that the social responsibility to temporarily support the needy is a far cry from the futile effort of funding the lazy.
They believe that regardless of how charitable you may be, they are more enlightened and better suited to decide for you which ‘less fortunates’ will get your money.
They’re quite comfortable with dismantling their own military to fund social welfare.
They believe that there is a thing called “income inequality” but doesn’t seem to understand “effort inequality”.
Widespread welfare and the dependence of the People on their government is the first step toward Socialism… and to quote Marx again, “Socialism is a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism.”
“The difference between a welfare state and a totalitarian state is a matter of time” ~ Ayn Rand, 20th century Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright and screenwriter
The Second Amendment:
Almost half of America doesn’t own guns and they fear those who do.
They believe that the Second Amendment is about hunting, or maybe a clause allowing the many States to form militia – which is, of course, now an archaic concept – but that it was never about arming the People so that they can force a change in their government if the need should arise… as it had in 1776 shortly before the Founding Fathers penned those 27 words.
The truth is that the right of the People to right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government…
“When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” ~ Preamble to the Declaration of Independence
Almost half of America thinks that imposing gun control on law-abiding citizens will somehow reduce gun violence committed by criminals.
They believe that Police (even black Police) are hunting down and murdering young black men, and at the same time they believe that Americans do not need firearms even to defend themselves in their own homes, despite the national average 15-minute response time.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed” ~ The Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments contained in the Bill of Rights.
The Threat of the Fundamentalist Islamic Jihad:
Almost half of America thinks that if we just leave Islamic terrorists alone they’ll leave us alone.
They think that Sharia Law is a quaint, parochial Muslim tradition –somehow “cool” and “trendy” for an enlightened Liberal to support – a measure of how tolerant and enlightened the Left is, regardless of death sentences for drug use, adultery, apostasy and homosexuality.
They think that murderous Jihadist terrorists are “misunderstood” and “only reacting to their surroundings” (like not having a job or a community center). They want to open our borders to millions of refugees they believe are families fleeing tyranny, despite the fact that 80% are military aged males.
They would NEVER insult Islam, but they have not the slightest hesitation attacking Christianity.
Almost half of America believes that Christians are bigoted, hateful and dangerous, but they welcome hundreds of thousands of Muslims into America to demonstrate how “tolerant” and “enlightened” they are – as we see the rape of women and Jihadist terrorist attacks skyrocket in Europe.
“Do not think the war that we are waging is the Islamic State’s war alone? Rather, it is the Muslims’ war altogether. It is the war of every Muslim in every place, and the Islamic State is merely the spearhead in this war. It is but the war of the people of faith against the people of disbelief.” ~ Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, 21st century leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, aka ISIS.
Almost half of America looks at Conservative America as a collection of simpletons who must be guided through life like retarded children – even lied to, if necessary – for our own good.
They believe that most of the territory of the United States – an area they frequently refer to as “the fly-over states” – is populated by backward, under-educated, bigoted, crude, and generally offensive people who unreasonably resist the joyous and enlightened utopia the Left offers in their Progressive agenda, and instead bitterly “cling to their guns and Bibles”.
They trust the leaders of places like Iran (and recently even North Korea) more than they trust any Conservative!
Almost half of America avidly support drug use, abortion and gay marriage even though many of them claim to be Christians, or Jews, both of which staunchly stand against all those practices as sinful.
They have no idea what’s in the Constitution and so they believe it when Dems tell them Health Care’s a “right” but keeping and bearing arms is not. They believe that a free college education is a right. They believe that freedom of speech is OK, as long as those on the Left are not offend; Conservative and Christian opinions are hateful by default and shouldn’t be protected.
They think that it should be perfectly fine for boys and girls to share the same bathroom in public schools. That there aren’t just two sexes, but instead there are dozens of sexes, and we should all just choose the one that suits us best when we wake up that morning.
They believe that they must regulate American’s religious beliefs, but not our borders or our voting process.
They think that if they can convince America there is no God, then all that “endowed by Creator with unalienable rights” and resistance to abortion, drugs and homosexuality bit will finally be over.
They’re neither open-minded nor considerate of other opinions; if you don’t agree you’re not just wrong you’re stupid and/or evil.
Almost half of America looks at all that is wrong with the world and concludes that America is the cause of it all.
They look at Conservative groups in American such as the NRA and the TEA Party and see a collection of racist radicals bent on the destruction of the United States government. Yet they hail truly destructive groups like the “Occupy Movement”, the “New Black Panthers” and “ANTIFA” as “making valuable contributions to American culture” and working for “social change”.
They believe that it’s the Republican Party that is racist and opposes the interests of black Americans, when even a casual review of the real history of Civil Rights in America shows that it is Democratic Party that resisted these issues from before the founding of our country, through the years of “Jim Crow Laws” all the way through to the present day as they ignore the plummeting unemployment rates among black Americans brought about by President Trumps economic policies.
They look at the world with which America must contend (Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and the threat of fundamentalist Jihadist Islam) and believe that Global Warming is the greatest challenge we face.
They look at Americans and believes the very worst of us (mostly based on our history, and their own misunderstandings), yet believe the very best of America’s enemies.
“… they [the people in ‘small town’ America – the populations of the “fly over states”] cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations” ~ President Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States.
The Bottom Line:
What will happen when almost half of America becomes slightly more than half of America? In one sense I suppose we’re already there, since Hillary Clinton did, in fact, receive about 2.9 million more votes than Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential Election.
