The Failing State Of The Union
I have been gone for the last couple of months, there was too much going on in my personal life, but I find myself alarmed at the state of the union since I have been gone.
With the death of my wife, then a house fire, and my son going through some serious personal problems while we were homeless, I felt a need to take time off to focus on my family but found with alarm the rapid change this nation has gone through, I started to think that I needed to focus on what is going on as well.
The most startling thing for me is the rapid change, radical change that the Left is trying to force on us. It used to be the thought of taking bibles out of schools because what they see as radicalness would have been unthought even two years ago, but now we hear of this book being taken out in multiple school districts around this nation.
But it has not stopped here; we have seen concerned parents seen as terrorists, daring to question the dogma of the Left will quickly bring you under investigation by the FBI. And speaking of the FBI, I have never seen them raid an ex-president’s house; a raid set more on a political agenda than looking for wrongdoing.
We have seen the Left try to change the Supreme Court membership, to add justices until they get the votes the way they want, and calls to get rid of the electoral college, which has been in place since the beginning of our republic.
When the Left yells about what others are doing, I have found over the years that it is best to look at their actions quickly. They have made it an art of blame deflection, to point fingers at others so they don’t have any pointed at them.
Now we have the IRS being radically expanded, an organization we have seen the Left use to target their opponents. Now they are not only expanding radically; they are now arming these agents, giving them the right to use deadly force against us Americans.
Our cities controlled by Democrats are no longer safe; they coddle the criminals while blaming the law-abiding citizens for the actions of the ones committing crimes. They call peaceful parents terrorists, then call rioters, who are burning whole blocks, destroying businesses, looting, and rioting, as peaceful examples of how an American should behave.
We are told that people who spent years paying off their student loans will be forced to pay for the student loans of Americans who took useless studies, are unemployable, or think they are privileged and should not have to work.
Speaking with my father the other day about this nation and the pace of change. He told me that it used to change went slowly; the people in charge took time to make changes, allowing people to adapt before another one took place, but now we have them coming at us at such a rapid-fire rate we no longer know how to act, talk, what is acceptable or not. If you don’t get everything right, someone runs off screaming about their emotions and how you hurt them.
I will be back with the news tomorrow, but today, so much has gone on that I felt there was a need to rant in a constructive manner.
As for you, who have been part of my life for the last six years, as we shared in the triumphs of this nation and mourned over its failures, I missed you and was blessed to work sharing with you.
