Freedom vs. Socialism & Marxism
I believe no one can deny the devastating effect the 2020 election has had on our country.
Everywhere you look we are in a rapid state of decline. Joe Biden is the perfect Trojan Horse for these socialist Marxists to instill their radical policies.
Almost without exception these socialist Marxists never served in the military and actually fought for our country or held a real job where they had to compete and struggle for their livelihood. The Joe Bidens, Nancy Pelosis, AOC, Omar, Kamala Harris are all alike. Their mantra is power and control by any means possible. Do as I say, not as I do.
Biden’s executive orders have had a devastating effect on our country. I would like to point out a few.
He stopped the Keystone Pipeline, banned all drilling and exploration on public lands, as a result prices are in a free fall, fuel supplies will run short.
Inflation is running rampant, wages can’t keep up. The government is printing money with no controls. Why work? The government will take care of you.
The Afghanistan debacle, the withdrawal of American troops was a complete disaster. We left as many as 500 Americans behind as well as many more Afghans who supported us. As a result, our prestige and preeminence in the world is at an all time low. Our enemies are emboldened.
The COVID crisis
It is largely because of Trump the COVID vaccines were developed as fast as they were. He stopped all incoming flights from China in January 2020, thereby saving many lives. He iniitiated the program Warp Speed to speed up their development and paid for them before they were developed to speed up the process.
This is an attempt to indoctrinate students with a very biased, one-sided view of American history which focuses on the negative. The plan of these socialist Marxists is to sow division and hatred among the races. Little is written about that we are the bright and shining star of hope for the rest of the world. At no time in history have so many enjoyed the freedoms and opportunities we have. More importantly, students should be taught the price by which these freedoms were secured. It is only by the sacrifice and blood of the men and women of all races and nationalities who fought and died for our nation we have these freedoms.
Start with the Pilgrims who came here for religious freedom. Move on to the war of independence where we fought the British to break the tyranny of British rule.
Our founding fathers established a government that is ongoing throughout world history, with a focus on individualism, freedom and responsibility. Most of them had a strong belief in God. Many were ministers. This was recorded in the preamble to the Constitution: All men are endowed with certain inalienable rights such as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Yes slavery is a black mark on our history, but look at it in the view of world history. It has always existed. To this day many are enslaved. Do you think that the citizens of Russia, China, Cuba and Venezuela are free? They are enslaved by socialist Marxists governments where all freedom is suppressed.
I don’t believe the real history of the Civil War is being taught in our classrooms. It took the toll of Black and White abolitionists and the deaths of 600,000-700,000 Black and White soldiers to abolish it.
But for the courage and bravery of the Union Army who fought off the Confederate forces at Gettysburg and the bravery and conviction of President Lincoln and generals like Ulysses S. Grant the south would probably have been able to secede and there would be no United States.
You have to respect the bravery of the southern troops who for the most part were not fighting for slavery but to defend their homeland.
The Border Crisis
No nation can exist without borders. Presently we are a nation without borders. Our border with Mexico is wide open. Along with the massive number of illegal immigrants, drugs, gang members like MS-13, child sex exploiters, are pouring in. None are being tested for COVID 19. They will overwhelm our health and education systems. They will displace many of the low wage Americans.
This is a sinister plot by the Democrats to ensure their control. They know that if these illegal immigrants get to vote, they will vote for them.
These socialist Marxists despise the soldiers, police, working men and women. They want to tear up the Constitution, abolish the Bill of Rights, and establish their form of government where they have all the power and control like Russia, China, Cuba and Venezuela.
You may think you are secure in your homes, jobs, education, and position in life. I say, think again.
