• If we wanted to think the same way on everything we would have one party. That's what this BS cooperation, bipartisanship is about, blame the right for being radical, point fingers until people think its a crime to be conservative.  We have different parties because we need the balance so one would not take over and be a bully!

    • America must stand as one Nation, one people, indivisible. if it is to survive in today's political climate and cultural wars... Political parties must not be so disparate that they fracture the Republic...  The underlying precepts for governing the Nation must be held in agreement.  What exist today are major differences in the Nation's culture and the essential concepts for governing the Republic.  The divisions in our Republic are so far apart that the People can not find the common ground needed to build stable and peaceful communities...

      Not, since the Civil War has there been such a breach in civility and public decorum... The Nation stands at the door of civil war; while, our leaders and captains of industry think only of lining their pockets and building their personal empires.  Thinking they can control the Elephant in the Room, these fools will soon run our ship of state aground, in the midst of a tempest sea... tearing apart with little is left of our common interests.

    • That has nothing to do with politics, our problems are from the braking down of school, in our homes, in the church, our children are thought lies. We could have differences in political ideas, we could discuss, even argue them, have two parties. The problem is the left wants to go one party...the communist party, and they are bullying the rest to give in, they are vicious, they are willing to do anything to reach their goal there is no common ground with them because they gave up on America, they gave up on freedom, they gave up on civility, and they are trying to force us to agree with them, give up everything America ever stood for! They aren't  interested in common interest!

      Exactly... as you stated: "... they  (the leftist) are trying to force us to agree with them, give up everything America ever stood for! They aren't interested in common interest! "  As I stated there are no common interests or negotiable grounds. The left's concepts for government simply are not compatible with our founding Fathers' vision for governing the Republic.

      Politics has everything to do with governing... it is the social system by which communities and nations are formed... politics is defined as: "The activities associated with the governance of a country or other area, especially the debate or conflict among individuals or parties having or hoping to achieve power..."

    • I agree with you.  Whenever we negotiate, or compromise with them we are only compromising with ourselves.  They never stop.  They must be stopped, if they are ever to stop.

    • Look what we have given up in the last 50 years! We have been giving up parts an pieces of our rights, our freedoms trying to satisfy the bastard left....nothing is ever enough, they come up with words like "bipartisanship" trying to make the right look bad. They are incredible wordsmiths, twisting the  meaning, they even call themselves the Democratic Party! That little ic changes them into the only party relevant while they are ruining everything they touch!  They want ALL the power over everything and everyone, they want to rule, and if they ever reached their goal they would start killing off their own in fear they might take that power from them. All dictators llive and ived in fear, wondering who and when they will knock them off?  You give them a finger, they want your arm!
      It's time to watch your words, give them the finger........the middle finger that is, and never give them your arm(s)!

      Compromise is the mother of all evil... once, that door is opened it is very difficult to shut. Compromise leads downhill, never up. Esau was a pragmatist... he compromised his birthright to satisfy his hunger and played the fool with the local women, to appease his flesh.

      With each act of compromise, the next becomes even easier; until one finds they have lost their way (foundation) completely. Compromise is not of God. God doesn't compromise with evil; with God, it is yeah or nay, black or white, and nothing between. Truth is a constant that never changes, it is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. The Pragmatist is often required to ignore the truth to achieve agreement, something Christians should abhor knowing where it leads. It is the little foxes that destroy the fruit of the vine... the small compromises that eat away at the substance of a virtuous life.

      Pragmatism is based on achieving practical results... worldly outcomes, that often appear to be the progressive thing to do for the moment. It is a philosophy that values action above maintaining one's principles. It often requires one to exchange principles to achieve little. The consequences of pragmatic decisions, over time, erode the foundation of the righteous... Often leading to the ultimate devaluation of one's core values. The true pragmatist has no core values, nothing that can not be compromised, to achieve what they define as results.

      "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful... the ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away." (Psalm 1:1 & 4) There can be no recompense with the unrighteous, no compromise with the Devil or his minions. Compromise is the mother of all evil... once that door is opened, it is near impossible to close.

      Bipartisanship is the worst sort of compromise... as it rarely delivers a solution to the problem, it often ignores the truth and one's principles, to achieve peace only to find it delivers neither peace nor a solution to the problem at hand.  I have long railed against such foolish attempts to deal with the Marxists.

      The destruction of the American dream… is not to be found in the devices of political parties; it is found in the turning away from our moral compass… God’s Word.  Where God is the arbiter of morality, the concepts of Government are established in righteousness and precepts, which serve the greatest good.  However, the natural will of man seeks to be free… from such moral restraints.

      Free from the moral bounds of a righteous God… man soon abandons the judgments of the righteous to embrace whatever is expedient, to appease his natural desires.  Eve took of the fruit of the ‘Tree of Knowledge’ because the fruit thereof appeared to be good and offered powers that she previously could not embrace.

    • We celebrate the fourth of July, but does the United States of America even resemble a Constitutional Republic anymore?   Let's be honest.  We currently have a President who legislates by executive fiat. He has personally created the energy crisis, which is strangling the middle and lower classes, and destroying our economy.  His executive orders have shut down the Keystone XL pipeline and canceled drilling contracts on federal land.  This in turn has cut our domestic oil production dramatically, driven up gas prices, and is fueling hyperinflation.  There was absolutely no legislation passed and no public debate.  He simply did this with a swipe of his pen as, if he were King George, himself.  No one should be surprised.  This is how our government has been run for the last thirty years, if anyone had bothered to look.


      The Biden administration has created this latest border crisis by intentionally ignoring, or violating federal immigration laws.  Our Southern Border is now wide open and has allowed over 2 million illegal immigrants to enter our country since Joe Biden took office.  If we were to go back to 1990, the number would easily approach, or perhaps surpass sixty million.  And now, we have record amounts of illegal drugs and fentanyl smuggled into this country through our Southern Border, which has resulted in a record number of overdose deaths and rampant criminal activity nationwide.  This administration has doing nothing to stop it, almost as, if they want it to happen.  We are being subjected to cultural and economic genocide.  America and her middle classes are being eliminated by design, engineered into extinction by our ruling class of banking elites, the globalists.


      The two years of the Covid pandemic proved what a facade our republic has turned into.  Unelected bureaucrats locked down our entire country, shut down schools and churches, forced businesses to close, and people were arrested for merely living their lives and trying to support their families. Covid showed how much power, freedom and rights the government can seize from the people whenever they want. The government forced the citizens to wear masks that did not combat the virus, and forced them to get vaccinations they did not want, or may not have even needed. Covid showed that under the guise of a crisis, the government can strip American citizens of their constitutionally protected rights, and turn America into an authoritarian state.  That means we have no constitutional rights, not anymore.


      Our intelligence agencies have become weaponized.  When General Flynn tried to expose them, he was destroyed.  Parents who object to their children being taught left-wing Critical Race Theory and radical "Gender theory," are deemed domestic terrorists and put on an FBI watch list. These agencies are continually being used against any perceived political opposition.  Since taking office, at least 11 of Joe Biden's political opponents have been arrested by the FBI, most at their homes with SWAT teams in pre-dawn raids, most were elderly men, and all for non-violent crimes.  Secret police and Gestapo tactics were never what America was about.  The statement has been clearly made, if you go against this administration and its great reset, you will end up in handcuffs.  This Administration represents the New World Order under the globalists, our own western establishment.  America has been overthrown, replaced.


      We no longer have a first amendment.  Censorship is not only commonplace in our society.  It is everywhere, every day, a simple fact of life.  Social media which now acts as the de facto town square is both protected and propped up by the federal government.  It is actively censoring the speech of one political party and quite literally, well over half the population.  Their social media businesses are intrusive and unabashed platforms for broadcast propaganda.  The same can be said for the rest of the legacy media.  Ruthless dictators and known terrorists are allowed to have Twitter accounts, but our former President is permanently blocked.  People are fired from their jobs and canceled from their lives, if they happen to hold, or espouse “Unapproved” political beliefs.  Cancel culture is a sign of the creeping authoritarianism that is taking over America.  We are already living in a cage, all of us.  Soon the steel door will slam shut.


      Our politicians are acting like authoritarian regimes.  See what is happening with the January 6th Capital riot?  Hundreds of Americans protesting a rigged and fraudulent election have been placed in solitary confinement and some have sat in DC jails for a year and a half without their cases being adjudicated.  They are all “political prisoners” who have been denied their rights to due process as citizens.  For the last two weeks, our country has been watching a show trial of former President Donald Trump.  Again, without any due process, no cross examination of witnesses, and no right to confront his accusers, his show trial relies on hearsay testimony.  The outcome appears to be “predetermined,” a forgone conclusion.  Nancy Pelosi, who presides over this show trial, has repeatedly called the riot an “Insurrection” even before the proceedings began.  She had already unsuccessfully and quite dubiously impeached Donald Trump twice.  Without the necessity of affording the accused any due process whatsoever, it is apparent to most of us that the outcome has already been decided.  Isn't that what they do in totalitarian countries like Russia and China?


      Do we really have a Constitutional Republic when election laws can be changed unconstitutionally by governors and judges, and not by state legislatures as is spelled out in our Constitution?  For a nation of laws, which regularly sets proven killers free on a technicality to so flagrantly and publicly ignore the law is troubling to say the least and telling with the aid of common sense.  It raises many serious questions.  Why is no one is allowed to question the legitimacy of a demonstrated, unconstitutional election shown to be rife with fraud?  This one-sided, partisan show trial of Donald Trump has also been used as an attempt to disprove the claim that the 2020 election was stolen.  We are being told he isn't to be allowed to run for President again because he is divisive?  But isn't that the entire purpose of elections?  The truth is we are neither a democracy, nor democratic, nor any Constitutional Republic.  Democracies do not ignore the will of the people as an institutional feature, nor do Constitutional Republics operate outside the rule of law.  These are hallmarks for, if not definitions of, authoritarian dictatorships, totalitarianism and tyranny.  


      Supreme Court Justices have had their private homes inundated by far-left wing mobs.  They are being threatened in real time.  They are being bulliedinto changing their rulings on the court, and not much is being done to stop it.  Once again, the message is clear, rule the way the far-left mob wants you to rule, or else.  The left may be radically ideological, unpopular and violent, but they are permitted to act as long as they are carrying water for the establishment, our own globalist leaders who also want to destroy this country.  The left believes that our country was founded on evil, and our wealth is a result of theft and exploitation.  Everything they do is about unethically rigging the system for their political advantage so they can remain in power.  Our own leadership elite globalists are also interested in absolute political power.  For the time being, the left serves their purposes.  


      Alexis de Tocqueville said, “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.” We are at the culmination of that moment right now. We currently have over $30 trillion in national debt with nothing to show for it.  Over the years, Congress has bribed Americans citizens to the tune of $30 trillion of their own money.  At some point the weight of our debt will collapse our Republic.  It is being done on purpose and out of greed.  The communists, the left, these "Woke, Cancel Cultures," the Progressives, and liberal Democrats who legitimize them all want more, more power to redistribute more of your wealth.  The authoritarians, the "Masters of the Universe," the globalists, our own, elite, leadership class, this western establishment on whose behalf the left really and unknowingly labors, intends to take complete control of this country and all of its resources in absolute totalitarian fashion.  They need America to collapse under the weight of its own debt.


      Our freedom and rights are the most valuable things we have.  All our money, wealth and possessions lose their value when we lose our political freedoms and rights.  Benjamin Franklin understood how tenuous a republic is not only from the power-hungry politicians who will try to strip the rights of the citizens to empower themselves, but also from weak minded citizens who would be willing to trade away their freedom and rights for security, or for a short-term result.  And whether it was for money, or power, we have meekly allowed all the governing principles that have made our Constitutional Republic the greatest in the history of the world to slip away into nothing.  Maybe, when it is gone we will realize what we actually had, and didn’t protect was what made us so prosperous?  That will be cold comfort as we live out the remainders of our remorseful, grieving lives, watching as our children and grandchildren suffer the consequences of our own feckless irresponsibility and soft, cowardly compliance.  Have a happy fourth of July.  Please do. July 3, 2022
