What is the problem with America today? Frankly, one could write a book on what they perceive as wrong with America and by the same token, they could write a book on what right and good about America. So, I am going to very briefly in my first posting to Vets-For-Trump try to give you my thoughts on what is dividing us today.
Although we celebrate Independence Day on July 4th, The Declaration of Independence was formally declared on July 2, 1776, a date that John Adams believed would be “the most memorable epocha in the history of America.” On July 4, 1776, Congress approved the final text of the Declaration. It wasn’t fully signed until August 2, 1776.
It was signed by 56 men all wealthy educated men who valued LIBERTY above all else. The very last sentence in the Declaration of Independence reads “And for the support of this Declaration with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred honor.”
These men not only planted the seeds of Liberty but watered the ground with their blood. They valued Liberty above their lives. I don’t have space here to expound upon what happened to these men during the Revolutionary War, however, you would do well to research the fate of these brave and selfless men.
If you are a student of history, you know there were plenty of colonists that wished to stay under the rule of England! They were called Tories, Royalists, or Kings Men. They helped the British prosecute the war against the Patriots. The Patriots simply called them traitors.
Today, we have the same dynamics, there are those that look at America and see her greatness despite her faults and imperfections and want to Make America Great Again! Then there are those that look at America and see nothing but cooperate greed, selfishness and decadence they think socialism is the answer (they euphemistically call it Democratic Socialism).
The problem is Patriots have been too busy working making a living, supporting their families and unfortunately let the socialist if not communist professors take over our colleges and universities. What used to be bastions of FREE SPEECH and NEW IDEAS has become anything but free speech platforms. In addition, we have pushed God out of most of our homes and schools (remember that last sentence in The Declaration of Independence; “—with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence’’’), our founding fathers knew needed the protection of divine Providence.
On November 9, 2016 Donald J. Trump became the President-elect and on December 19, 2016 Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence were formally elected by the Electoral College as President and Vice-President of the United States of America.
For over three years now the Democrats have led a campaign to oust President Trump for office. It has been a relentless campaign of lies, propaganda, misquotes, collusion accusations (proven false) now bogus Impeachment hearings, charges of bribery and who know what they will come up with next!
Despite all they have thrown at President Trump he has accomplished more in his three years in office than any President since Reagan (especially for Veterans).
A study of history will confirm that no great country since the dawn of civilization was ever conquered from outside forces. First, there is massive internal decay of their society. This is happening to America. Unless those that truly love her are willing to give their all to Make and Keep America Great! We can’t sit on our backsides and depend on the other Patriots to carry our responsibilities.
