It appears we have hit rock bottom.
As our nation waits to find out whether or not presidential candidate Joe Biden and the Democrats will be allowed to blatantly steal the election, any decent American has to be appalled that somebody like Biden and “Karl-Marxa” Harris could even get enough votes to be competitive.
In a meeting with Democrat operatives on Oct. 24, Biden bragged, “We’re in a situation where we have put together, and you guys did it for our administration … President Obama’s administration before this.
“We have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” he said, speaking to former Barack Obama staffers during Democrat Dan Pfeiffer’s Pod Save America podcast)
While Democrats tried to chalk up Biden’s admission as just another one of his “misstatements,” the reality and abundant evidence indicates his admission is more than just a Freudian slip.
Democrats’ “most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics” is working far harder and more blatantly to steal the election than they ever worked to earn Americans’ votes, much less Americans’ trust — at least Americans who are rational and who love America.
The truth is the Democratic Party of today is, with few exceptions, the party of the uninformed, the misinformed and/or the traitorous.
The Democratic Party of today views abortion as a sacred “constitutional right,” even though such a right is not only not found within the U.S. Constitution, but also stands in direct opposition to the very premise of the constitutional protection of our God-given rights, among which is life itself.
The Democratic Party also pushes the perverted “transgender” agenda, including forcing mutilation surgery and dangerous drugs on very young children, which Biden publicly endorsed for 8-year olds; supports the racist and Marxist BLM (Burn, Loot, Murder) movement, the fascist Antifa, and communism, which Harris publicly endorsed just two days prior to the election; and hates everything about the founding principles of our country, especially our Christian heritage.
So, while those supporting Democrats may be Americans as far citizenship goes and with all of the inherent rights of an American, many are American-In-Name-Only (AINO).
AINOs have been helped over the years by RINOs (Republican-In-Name-Only) who regularly betrayed both the many rank-and-file conservatives who make up the GOP and the many conservative independents.
In short, as a nation, we are not one big happy family with minor disagreements. We no longer share a common worldview and basic understanding of right and wrong.
Our expectation of what government should and shouldn’t do and what our rights are and from whom those rights come are not compatible.
We are more divided now than ever. That divide includes those who are not politically oriented at all.
Many conservatives, myself included, see a Biden-Harris presidency as the end of our republic, based on their stated goals and polices and past history.
There would be no political recourse at the federal level. America would once again be for sale by the Democrats and RINOs.
Communist China, Russia, Iran and a host of other enemies of American have already paid the price of admission to the Democrats’ planned auctioning off of Americans’ jobs, wealth and freedom.
If Democrats get away with stealing the presidency, it is even more urgent we work to elect people for state and local government who will oppose federal overreach at every turn. Unfortunately, even on our side, there are few who are willing to do that.
Back to the main issue: We are incompatible. Barring divine intervention leading to a spiritual and moral revival in our country, we are likely to drift farther and farther apart — both sides fearing the other when out of power.
Federal judicial appointments will become even more contentious.
Likewise, our disagreements about the role of government, especially the federal government, likely will get worse.
Government “budgets” (aka, unrestrained and unsustainable spending) will grow and taxes will increase.
Long term, I don’t see us staying together as a country, at least not peacefully.
However, if we were to strictly follow the 10th Amendment (“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people”), we could reduce a lot of the friction and disfunction that is now so prevalent in both government and society as a whole.
That includes the judiciary. Some of the most contentious issues arise because of federal courts imposing their will on citizens and states over issues that are clearly state and local issues.
We also have allowed rogue tyrannical judges to presume for themselves the roles limited to the legislative and executive branches.
Following the 10th might extend the life of our constitutional republic.
Should President Donald Trump be successful in stopping the theft of this election, it would keep us in the fight politically to turn our country around.
However, it is not a cure-all, and the divisions can’t be fixed by a president, certainly not in another four years.
Though it is a battle we need to win to stay in the war politically, it will not win the war.
Whether it is the issue of constitutional constraints on the role and power of the federal government, remedying the destruction that decades of Leftist indoctrination throughout our education system have wrought, resulting in millions upon millions of Americans being uninformed, misinformed and/or traitorous enough to even consider voting for Biden-Harris; or the many other critical issues facing our nation, these battles have to be fought at all levels, county and state especially.
Keeping the Republic is not just an election-year function. We must be ever vigilant — and pray and fast and put feet to our prayers — if we are to save and preserve America.
