When you consider what has happened in the United States in the last nine months, incredibly, it doesn't even seem like our own nation anymore. People rioting in the streets during the summer are described by the lamestream media as "peaceful protesters." District Attorneys let hardened criminals out of jail. Grammar schools indoctrinate our children, teaching them to hate America.
The Lunatics are Running the Asylum
Governors mandate lockdowns of their citizens while flagrantly breaking their own rules. A presidential administration, run by who knows who, is undermining the "1776 Project" -- which was designed to offer a balanced perspective on American history -- while supporting the misdirected "1619 Project," which was launched by The New York Times and claims that the real founding of the U.S. started when slaves were first shipped across the Atlantic.
On and on it goes: Thousands of strange assertions, end runs around the law, and media flights of complete fantasy. The creepy, illegal, unpatriotic, absurd positions of the Left are unfolding at an increasing pace. Whether it's defacing property, pulling down statues – even of Gandhi, Grant, and Lincoln – desecrating church symbols, renaming schools, defaming Dr. Seuss, or re-assigning the sex of a plastic toy potato, the Left knows no bounds.
Those in a position to call them out, our elected representatives, as well as opinion makers, too often say little or nothing.
The March to Madness
Exactly what sort of madness leading up to this March is occurring? Is there a common denominator to all of the heartless and heart-sickening behaviors that we've witnessed for months on end now, and realistically, on a lesser level, for years? Actually, the answer is yes.
Every activity of the Left, from tiny to gargantuan and in one form or another, is designed to diminish the strength, status, and sovereignty of the U.S. Whether it's seeking to overrun the country with illegal immigrants, pack the Supreme Court, smear Supreme Court nominees, besmirch local officials, cancel the careers of people who've made one errant statement, even if that statement was 30 years ago, all such activities have a common denominator. The common denominator is to vanquish the opposition thoroughly, vanquish the U.S. Constitution, ignore due process, overturn the right of habeas corpus, contort "one person one vote," and much, much more so that as a nation we are left in tatters.
'We Know What is Best'
As the U.S. declines, the global elite believe that they move closer and closer to their goal of having a one-world government. Headed by global elites – Leftist multi-million dollar career politicians and Leftist billionaires, who pull the strings around the world – such a government supposedly will produce the utopian society the Left fervently desires.
Utopias don't exist, however, could not work if they did, and would end up enslaving their citizens. Read Utopia by Sir Thomas More, Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes, The Republic by Plato, or any other treatise on supposedly ideal societies. You will quickly understand that the elite invariably will regard the citizenry with disdain, nothing more than serfs – worker drones – who are to act according to how they are manipulated and who will do exactly what they are told.
By any measure, the global elite's decades-long quest for a one-world government is exceedingly far from American ideals. Indeed, it so distant from what our Constitution guarantees and so far from the spirit of the Declaration of Independence that it is beyond chilling.
A Chilling Vision
If America falls, the whole world falls, except for the Chinese Communists. They will control at least half of the globe, and their form of government is going to be worse than what the global elites have in mind. The Chinese are already experimenting with creating biologically enhanced "super soldiers," more powerful than the average soldier.
They already have imprisoned thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people in slave labor camps. They already have surveillance cameras in their larger cities to a degree that you cannot imagine. In time, it might be shown that they intentionally released the Wuhan virus on the world. Who can say right now?
The global elites and the Chinese Communists must be contained and stopped. It will be a monumental task, but we stopped Hitler and Mussolini, we overcame the monolithic Soviet Union, and we can prevail now as well. It will require Gen Xers and Millennials to break away from the Left's cultural stranglehold. And as they do, they will find that at least 75 million Trump voters will be on their side.
