In our enthusiasm for one candidate or another, an important element of the debates, discussions and eventually voting is overlooked by some. Eventually, all of us will come together in support of America. Setting aside the path that was taken and the verbiage that was spoken and increasingly the attacks that are mounted for or against this or that candidate, we muddle through. We will ultimately find a candidate that may or may not speak to issues that resonate with us, and we will support our collective choice soundly and loudly, even though our preference may not win the day.
We will however, coalesce behind someone whose imperfect stand on issues or personality quirks or mistakes one day and homers the next will be set aside for our true loyalties to America itself and its foundational principles. Of this I can be certain.
But… Let us be clear that we have never seen a day where the existential threat to our freedoms and liberties was invited in under false pretenses and hidden agendas and loyalties. We have seen traitors come and go, and efforts to undermine the Republic fail to gain the traction needed to “fool all the people all the time.”
Up until this present day, we have not been confronted by an ideology which sets itself against our basic principles and instructs its adherents to mount offensives against our children, our womenfolk, our Judeo-Christian heritage and the principles and Constitution which prescribe for us our rights, our limitations and our responsibilities.
In recent days, we have seen many entering this great nation having falsely taken oaths to serve the interests of the Republic knowing full well that they will not honor their word but serve another master and another set of guidelines for living.
There is no room for treason in our nation, no place for those who would deceive in order to dominate and subvert. The goodness of We The People is not a suicide pact open to submission to any set of values that requires turning against the Republic itself. Those who come into the nation, allowed entrance because of a false declaration of abeyance to our laws and ways should be identified and relieved of the bounty inherent in being one of “We The People” – beneficiaries of God’s gracious provisions for Americans.
Let us confront Islam as it should be confronted and remove adherents to its deception from the land our liberties and freedoms are used against us in submission to their way and not ours. To do what I suggest is to ensure the future for our progeny free and not enslaved.
