Burning Bridges to the Past-Leftist Style

Have you ever wondered why it is secular-liberals have such a disdain for America's past? During every local and national election, progressives mock America's past and ridicule their opponents, accusing conservatives of desiring to return our country back to its past as if all former things are evil and worthless in today's contemporary society. Ever wonder why it is that many of today's liberals maintain our Constitution is outdated and needs to be scrapped? Why do liberals roll their eyes in disgust when conservatives talk about American exceptionalism? Why do they want to undermine our Judaic/Christian heritage by taking God out of the Pledge of Allegiance, to site just one example. Why do they want our young people to be ignorant about America's past and greatness? Why do liberals continue to wage their annual war on Christmas? Well, the following quotations by a few of our Founding Fathers as well as the influential wife of John Adams, Abigail Adams, might shed some light on the subject as well as open your eyes with regard to the questions I have just posed!

"I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no
way of judging the future but by the past."
                                                                                 Patrick Henry

"There are only two creatures of value on the face of this earth; those with a commitment and
those who acquire the commitment of others."
                                                                                 John Adams

"How few there are who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough
to mend them."                                                        
                                                                                 Ben Franklin

"Learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought for with ardor and attended to
with diligence."
                                                                                 Abigail Adams

The following eleven quotes are from Thomas Jefferson:

"Honesty is the first chapter of the book of wisdom."
"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as
corrupt as Europe."
"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to
work and give to those who would not."
"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which
if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world."
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from
wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."

"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from
too much government."

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is,
as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of
patriots and tyrants."

"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which
he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."

"On every question of construction let us carry ourselves back to the time
when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the
debates, and instead of trying what meaning can be squeezed out of the text,
or invented against it, conform to the probable one which was passed."

These quotations pointedly answer the questions posed in the opening paragraph of this blog. Democrats do not want Americans to see them for who and what they really are because their philosophy as how best to govern America is diametrically opposed to the philosophy advocated by our Founding Fathers. To borrow a clever line from the movie, The Wizard of Oz: "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain! The great Oz has spoken!" The liberals despise our past, are embarrassed about it, and no longer want anything to do with the virtues that made our country truly exceptional. On the other hand, the above quotes are reflective of the political and economic philosophies of conservatives, not liberals who are tearing this country apart.

Progressives do not want our children to be educated about the greatness of our past in our public schools. They do not want patriotic assemblies presented to our children that would inspire a patriotic love for our country. Gone are the teaching of patriotic hymns such as, 'America the Beautiful,' 'God Bless America,' 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic,' etc. I seriously doubt most of today's children would even know the lyrics to such songs--songs we proudly sang regularly in public school when I was growing up in Great Falls, Montana during the 1960s. Gone are the Nativity Pageants in our schools and the Creche displays in our communities during the Christmas season. The general populace as well as many of our progressive politicians are ignorant of our Declaration of Independence and the Constitution because of a lack of emphasis being placed on these sacred documents in many of our public schools. Our Founding Fathers would be appalled with what secular-liberals and atheists are currently advocating for America while shoving their vile secular-progressive psychobabble down everyone's throats with the full support of liberal politicians, liberal judges, and liberal special interest groups such as the ACLU, etc. We have mass shootings occurring right now in our public and private schools by deranged and Godless youth, rather than prayer and brief Bible reading which occurred during the majority of our Republic's history. Our culture is dying. Our youth is dying. Our country is dying, and all we can muster are pathetic, lame excuses for all of this hogwash while our political leaders and the majority of the American people are turning blind eyes and deaf ears as to the reasons why such tragedies are occurring.

My book, 'The Sissification of America: A Fifty-Year Decline in American Exceptionalism,' contains many of the above quotes and serves as a clarion call for the American people as to how we might rekindle A City upon a Hill. We had better turn things around now my fellow Americans or we will perish as a nation, or we will follow in the footsteps of socialistic Europe which is what liberals truly desire for this nation. America rebelled against the tyranny of England by declaring its independence from British tyranny in 1776. Liberals, are you listening? Patriots, are you prepared to get your hands dirty and fight the good fight to save our country from those who want to destroy it from within? Where are the muscular Christians who are willing to reprise the old hymn, 'Onward Christian Soldiers,' and take back our country from those traitors who want us to reflect the values, politics, moral relativism, and socialistic economic priorities of Western Europe? If we end up going down the path of the decline of the ancient Roman Empire my dear Americans, we will have no one to blame but ourselves! Complacency is our worst enemy my fellow Patriots. May God help us!!

Storm Clouds Over The American Horizon

The following excerpts are from a former president's Independence Day oration-delivered while campaigning as a candidate for Congress in 1946. See if you can determine who it was that delivered these words to the American people. The answer may surprise you!

"Whenever freedom has been in danger, Americans with a deep sense of patriotism have ever been willing to stand at Armageddon and strike a blow for liberty and the Lord...

...The right of the individual against the state has ever been one of our most cherished political principles. The American Constitution has set down for all men to see the essentially Christian and American principle, that there are certain rights held by every man which no government and no majority, however powerful, can deny. Conceived in Grecian thought, strengthened by Christian morality and stamped indelibly into American political philosophy, the right of the individual against the state is the keystone of our Constitution. Each man if free.
He is free in thought.
He is free in expression.
He is free in worship. ...

May God grant that, at some distant date, on this day, and on this platform, the orator may be able to say that these are still the great qualities of the American character and that they have prevailed."

Re-read the above closing statement of this prominent American politician and ponder it for a brief moment. Can we honestly say that the great qualities of the American character are in serious danger in today's political climate? You bet they are my fellow Americans! I personally question as to whether or not they will prevail much longer. Look how far we have come as a nation in a relative short period of time. Want some other examples? Let us take a brief look at a couple of shocking examples that have recently transpired within some of the nation's public schools.

A few years back, the local school board of Portland, Maine, approved the distribution of contraceptives to the students in its middle schools without parental notification or approval. In 2007, there was a drug and sex scandal at Boulder High School in Boulder, Colorado, that made national headlines when it authorized a highly controversial assembly for its student body without parental notification or approval. According to Bill O'Reilly of Fox News, four guest presenters discussed the virtues of participating in promiscuous sex, drug taking, and breaking the law by experimenting with the illegal drugs of marijuana and ecstacy. These are but a couple of examples of how the nation's schools have sunk to an all time low in standards and morality during the course of the past fifty years, and these examples are but the tip of an enormous iceberg that is poised to sink America as if she were the HMS Titanic! How can anyone seriously maintain America is on the right path economically, politically, or morally? The vast majority of the American people maintain America is headed in the wrong direction, yet half of the electorate voted to re-elect President Obama and a larger Democratic presence in the U.S. Senate.

The aforementioned examples are featured in chapter one of my book, 'The Sissification of America: A Fifty-Year Decline In American Exceptionalism.' Not only does my book educate Americans about our country's historical virtues of exceptionalism, how they came about, and why they are in decline, but it also presents an action plan as to how we can reverse the dangerous course we are on. If we are going to survive, we need to circumvent the storm clouds on the American horizon. We can either follow in the footsteps of the decline of the ancient Roman Empire, or we can rekindle A City upon a Hill. The choice is ours to make. We hold our own destiny in the palms of our hands. Are you still curious who it was that delivered the above excerpts in his Independence Day oration in 1946?
It was John F. Kennedy.
If you are surprised by this, buy my book and be prepared to read many other surprises that are in store for you as the book will certainly not be a disappointment. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines!
