Let me justify this statement by offering some glaring examples of where America stands today as viewed by other Americans in the world:
Our schools are broken and they teach anti-American rhetoric to the young impressionable students by people who are embedded in a Marxist culture and mindset where American values, cultures, and accomplishments are disparaged on a regular basis. Rather than teach how great America is for its wondrous and monumental accomplishments, the teachers choose as their communist masters taught them, to admonish and denigrate those who made those achievements possible and relinquish them to the rubbish pile to be replaced by counter empty talk and massive changes to our history, and the focus on our tremendous accomplishments as a nation and as a people.
We were able to become top dog in the world because of one basic human need, and that is, the yearning to be free. To be the navigator of our own destiny and desires. To raise our families in an environment where no one and that includes a government has the right to tell us what we are supposed to do with our lives and our families according to someone else’s dialogue and plan. We knew early on in our country what we would do with our money as we earned it, how we would conduct our lives if we maintained an honorable course, and we accepted and earned the expressed esteem of our friends and neighbors because of who we were as people.
While some of us made great strides in not only business but education, some were either extremely successful and what we choose to do with our lives and our ability to earn our daily bread, while others, simply were ordinary and accomplished in a simple life lived through the struggles that come our way, but they never lost sight of the fact that they were free, and they were honorable people, doing honorable things, and they loved their country.
Our public educational system was so effective in turning out bright young people who went out into the world and accomplished incredible things. We went from our first manned flight which was rudimentary as can be, to landing on the moon in three generations. Some people lived to realize both events in their lifetimes. Think about that.
Our medical doctors, engineers, teachers, industrialist, scientist and so much more were the absolute best a society could produce. This happened because people were free to follow their dreams as they built a life built on a society that honored not only freedom but integrity, patriotism and a desire to build a life that was better than their parents or their ancestors had in the past.
Slowly and imperceptibly, America’s ideologies and incredible wealth were envied by so many the world over. Jealousy, resentment, and political theories began to seep into our society and our culture was changed ever so slowly. Perhaps if we take into consideration that Karl Marx wrote his venomous little book on February 28, 1848, with the help of his friend and beneficiary Frederick Engels, it was imported into America by immigrants seeking a better life than they had experienced in both Russia and Europe.
As most of us know from hearing about or experiencing firsthand the imperceptible spread of cancer throughout the body, the damage reaches a point where it can no longer be controlled or contained and then it dies along with the host’s body. Our culture was infected with a malevolent system of an idea that began to kill freedom, honor, and an educational system based on achieving rather than simply getting by, a system that taught an individual the harder it was to learn a subject or problem, the more solid was a learning experience.
But that wasn’t enough, the evil of the Marxist doctrines slowly began to destroy the father figure and head of the household, it cashed out church and God from the masses and it taught them these things weren’t important, they weren’t critical to life, and honesty and ethics began to corrode as if acid had been introduced to them, and slowly dissolved what had once been cherished by most Americans.
It didn’t end there, a steady stirring of the pot of dissension that taught Americans their accomplishments were something not to be proud of but in fact, were embarrassing. That wasn’t enough, and they began to change history to change those things set in place by a free people to show their thanks for what others did before them. Our books were changed, our culture in the classroom was changed. It was no longer important to strive for the top of the class with hard achieved grades which were replaced ever so slowly by an attitude of indifference predicated on the idea that no one should be a loser and everyone should be a winner regardless of their effort. Everyone got a free ride to ignorance.
The races were turned against a free society which taught them they were not free in the society but held back by a majority who didn’t want them to participate in their sports, their schools, to have access to the same places the majority had access to which didn’t really lead to freedom of the minority, it replaced what they had with an entitlement mentality which took all of the other changes into consideration, and gave them not an equality, but a superiority in all things in this society of freethinking people.
These free-thinking people believed the communist dogma that was coming out that in essence, the majority was being discriminated against so in their zeal to rectify perceived wrongs that happened 100 plus years ago, they pass laws to make discrimination, segregation, and the forceful enforcement of not allowing these people equal access to all things in the American society. Many thought this was good, even though it was forced on the majority with the bayonet on the end of a battle rifle wielded by National Guard troops to compel us to accept a portion of our society which wasn’t completely accepted before or integrated into a society ruled by the majority.
Today, as a result of this social engineering experiment, this minority population has enjoyed preferential treatment for entry to higher education, even though many who are accepted cannot compete on the same level. So, the rules were relaxed and the standards which at one time had been at the top of the educational system, became lesser and at the level of some Third World countries. The skill with which our scientist, engineers, and medical doctors began to drop to a lesser position than some of the others in other countries because we no longer required our students to become the best they could be and were relegated to a lesser position because of the lower standards initiated to allow a lesser intelligent factor to compete fairly.
Our language was changing. Words that once signified one thing were assigned a new meaning. You could no longer refer to a cripple person as a cripple they had to be referred to as disabled. A person who was retarded was now called mentally disabled. It didn’t end and our language became distorted with new meanings with a twist to what they had once referred to.
Then, our nation’s citizens decided perversions were not so bad after all and decided to embrace much of what was previously considered unacceptable to a society that maintained religious and acceptable standards. Then, as a nation, we decided to kill millions of unborn babies simply as a method of controlling bad decisions or carelessness.
Pornography and other perverted practices became normal everyday occurrences were at one-time swearing or showing a man and a woman in the bed together was not acceptable. When the nation accepted wholesale perversions, perverted lifestyles and going so far as to make perverts a protected class, many of the other standards that supported a moral society began to decay and collapse.
Next to the left seizing control of the educational system is being probably one of the worst things the left has done to America, it doesn’t stand alone as the worst. It would be a toss of the coin to try to figure out what was worse, the unimaginable damage the educational system has done to our country and our society at large through indoctrination of our young, and an idea which is proven everywhere it has been accepted as nearly fatal to a country, the left went one step further, and began infiltrating into the media the fourth estate as it’s referred to and is protected by law.
The Constitution explicitly gave them preferential treatment because it was their job to keep our society alerted to damage being instituted by certain groups such as corrupted politicians, certain thieves, and cheaters of society, to unethical and unqualified medical doctors and lawyers, and it was their job to report any egregious happening that could affect a free people and their society at large.
As this happened, like all of those creeping cancers, it happened slowly, with purpose and with a concentrated effort to distort the news, important events, breakthroughs in discoveries in the sciences and medicinal industry, and most of all it became a tool for a corrupt people and leaders in government to use against the free society. We let it happen. We did little if anything to stop what was happening to us. By sitting on our hands, by not speaking up and doing nothing the proverbial inch was seized by the left and became hundreds of miles long. It seems to have happened in a very short time. In fact, it had been eating away at our country since the turn of the 20th century.
Marxism/communism was introduced into America with the heavy immigration of Europeans around 1880-1929. A very tragic financial event hit America one day and the rest of the world in 1929, during this time, people forgot about communism/socialism for a while because they concentrated on providing enough to eat for their families. The stock market crash affected nearly everyone. People who lost everything they owned were jumping out of buildings to their death not being able to cope with the tragedy. It went on until the advent of the second world war when we as a nation rolled up our sleeves and decided to fight an enemy that had the audacity to attack us on Sunday morning. Although, historians will tell us that we did it to ourselves by throwing gasoline on the fire of resentment when we began an embargo oil and raw materials to the Japanese Empire.
Hitler was not only conquering all of Europe which he began in 1939 while the Japanese were conquering Asia and much of the Pacific. We sat back and watched it happen and did nothing to stop them. In fact, when the war started in 1941 our military was so poorly equipped, and so undertrained and lacking in substantial military supplies, we nearly lost the war as it was just beginning. At that time Americans were patriotic not like they are today when the trumpets of war sound today’s American runs to hide in some pretense safe spot as not to be involved in the conflict. Americans in 1941 loved their country, their flag, their military, the enormous exploits early Americans created with, in many cases, their bare hands building canals, roads, railroads, and cities on the frontiers. They didn’t turn their backs on the flag.
Back then, no one would understand any of these traitorous deeds, especially an American burning our flag or disrespecting a veteran. The chances are if any of this was to happen in a public display the perpetrators might not survive with their body intact for long. They would’ve been beaten to a pulp.
So America went to war, and when the veterans of that war came home there were huge parades and turnouts for them. Nobody called them baby killers, nobody dared disrespect a veteran for fear of retaliation that could get quite serious. Many of the veterans returning from the wars in Europe and the Pacific were highly trained combat tested soldiers sailors Marines and airmen. And there was no tolerance for anyone to disrespect them.
Roosevelt was a closet communist and he instituted many things that affect us today. Social Security was one. It was never intended to be used as a proof of identity, it was never intended to be taxed and it was never intended to be anything other than what it was initially, a cushion for the elderly when they retired from the workforce.
Today, those of us who remember what America used to be like can only feel the terrible depression those many and very hostile changes has made to each and every one of us. It isn’t the same world and it isn’t the same country it once was. That’s a tragedy because once the lamp of Liberty goes out in America, where will people find freedom? Where will they go from there? Freedom is the most treasured ingredient of life we have as a people. Once lost, it will be a bloody and hard endeavor to try to get it back.
