After 15-plus years of denigrating conservative Christians, and the idea that Christian morality should be taught in the schools, and opposing Christian religious symbolism on any public land, bible clubs on campus, removing God, and the Bible, from the schools, and replacing it with [teaching of] evolution, abortion rights claiming that the fetus was nothing but "blob" or a "parasite," sex "education," and more, now the leftwing wants these same "faith-based" organizations to help them promote universal healthcare on moral grounds, or to assist in fighting the violence that is increasing in the education system.And there is again the rewriting of American history by claiming that the GOP is "racist." The usual example of such is by using the switching of parties by Strom Thurmond in 1964 basing that claim on the "fact" that the Democratic Party added an anti-segregation plank to its platform. Of course, they have to ignore that it was the Democrats that used violence, hangings, poll taxes, etc. to prevent Blacks from voting for Republicans, and that the GOP had anti-slavery, and anti-segregation, planks in its platform since 1854.
Nor should we ignore the recent call for "civility" even though the leftwing has been trashing Republicans, especially conservatives, since the Reagan years.
The strategy of recruiting individuals to achieve political objectives by taking advantage of their psychological need for "righteous" causes is nothing new. It was a strategy developed in large part by a man named Willi Münzenberg in the '20s and '30s. It was from this strategy of enlisting the benevolent, and humanitarian, sympathies of individuals for political means that Lenin reportedly regarded them as "useful idiots" or "deaf-mutes." One can easily demonstrate how the "benevolent" attributes of some Americans are being used to destroy the fabric of America.
So, why not try a little honesty here? The reason the country is in this mess is due to a lack of both parties doing due diligence to their Constitutional mandate. If our "representatives" in Washington D.C. were to act as the Founders envisioned, they would only be in DC for one month, and the rest of the time they would be trying to earn a living in the private sector as all others do. The Founders did not envision a professional politician, nor was the Constitution written in a form that would allow any other than statesmen to occupy the offices. However, as Jefferson warned, once they discovered they could buy votes using the "gratuity" of the nation, this all changed.
The country was not founded on the principle of "entitlements. " It was founded on the principle of certain "rights." It was founded on a limited central government with the majority of the power belonging to the states where the citizenry could control the excesses better.
If the country were to ever be united what would these leftwing politicians do?
