And we may be heading for a showdown.
Robert Arvay again has a post at the American Thinker entitled Is the USA Headed For a Violent Revolt in 2020? in which he makes the case that the two sides are so divided and so distrustful of the other that either way the vote comes out, the other will cry foul. His analysis seems to me to be spot on. Arvay goes back to basic principles, and notes that the two sides, designated "right" and "left" have fundamental philosophies that can not be reconciled by a compromise. One side inevitably loses in any compromise. There are no win-win compromises available that will satisfy.
In 2019, we have for many years been witnessing the growing divide between two opposing political philosophies, loosely termed "right" and "left" or conservative and liberal, but the names do not capture the real cores of the two sides. Essentially, the right believes in individuality, the Left in collectivism.Read the entire post. Be prepared. I suspect things will get worse before they get better, if they ever do get better.
Sumatra Maitra, over at The Federalist explains why we need to disengage from the Middle East, and our small wars in Whocaresistan, and bring our troops home to secure our border. His latest piece is entitled The Nations In America's Backyard Are Falling Apart While U. S. Remains Stuck In The Middle East. Again go and read Maitra's thoughtful piece.
Read it? Good.
Now, here is why I have I believe these two pieces belong together. The Left is proceeding apace to take over this country by any means necessary. They are using the Courts as a way to rewrite the laws as they see fit. They are using their supremacy in the education bureaucracy to indoctrinate your children, and they are doing a very good job of turning out incredibly ignorant people who will vote for them. And they are replacing traditional Americans with horders of Third
Worlders who have no respect for, or understanding of, our system of government. Now, lest someone accuse me of being a xenophobe, let me state that I am all for legal immigration, but strictly against illegal immigration. A proper reform of our immigration laws would recognize that those coming into our country must have something of value to add to our already accomplished population.
Please remember that our system grew up organically from very ancient roots in the Viking tribes that established the English world. Remember that England was a land over run by first the Celts, then the Anles, Saxons, and Jutes (from Denmark and Northern Germany) and then the Norman invasion. But the Normans were actually the Vikings who invaded France a generation before. Our unique form of government grew out of these cultural roots. One can not simply "give" another an understanding of and appreciation for our unique system. It is complex, and requires much from the governed. As we are learning, even people long accustomed to it do not always appreciate it.
If we can cut off the Left's supply of new voters, and put Trump in for another 4 years, to change the judiciary sufficiently, we might just stand a chance. Our next task is to retake the educational system. The purpose of a liberal education is to teach a child how to think, not what to think. We need more institutes of higher learning like Hillsdale College.
Indeed, if we do not take back our country today, we may not be able to take it back tomorrow.
